Genius Gila MMO/RTS Mouse Review

We have just posted up our review of the Genius Gila MMO/RTS Professional Gaming Mouse. There are a lot of mice that claim to be "Professional" grade, but if they can't stand up to the actual punishment of long hours of gaming, they suck. The Genius Gila doesn't suck and we've been putting this mouse through torture and it still is awesome. Take a look at our review for all the details.

Three months of mercilessly pounding this mouse with ARMA 3 has definitely put the Gila to the test. It relies heavily on multiple mouse functions with keyboard modifiers and the Gila doesn’t even bat an eye... It is a great mouse and I would recommend it to anyone enjoys having a lot of functionality right at their fingertips.

Surface 2 for $200

If you live in the USA and are wanting to pick up a Surface 2 RT tablet, there is absolutely no better time than now. Right now on Microsoft's eBay store, you can pick up a 32GB Surface 2 with Windows 8.1 RT for a mere $200. It comes with free shipping in the USA and while is a refurbished unit, is up to the same quality standards and condition of a new one. Go shopping and beat some of the Black Friday rush.

At less than 1.5 pounds and just 8.9 mm thick, Surface 2 lets you carry less while you do more. It runs Windows RT 8.1 and comes preinstalled with Microsoft Office 2013 RT, so you get Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote—right out of the box. Surface 2 ups the ante with a more powerful, always-on processor, so it's ready to go when you need it. With an up to 10-hour battery that keeps you charged through the day, Surface 2 is powerful, yet ultra-thin and lightweight.

Another Reason to Hate Ubisoft

If you are a big fan of Ubisoft - or if you hate them, here's something to think about next time you go buy one of their titles. According to a writer that works at Ubisoft and has been working on Far Cry 4 - gamers are terrorists. He says that there are some controversial things in the new game that you may not like, but he doesn't care if gamers like it or not "because you don't negotiate with terrorists". He's not talking about the content of the game here, he's stating that gamers are terrorists and he won't change the game if you don't like it. 

This comes in the shadow that still haunts Mass Effect 3 where people hated the ending so much and after many complaints, free DLC was given with a different ending that closed the story much better. Ubisoft will NOT being doing that. They won't let us gaming terrorists ruin their ideas. Yeah, I play games, I have an opinion - and I'm a terrorist. Thanks Ubisoft. I won't argue with your game stories because I won't be playing them.

Chromebooks for Schools? New York Says Yes!

I think Google's Chromebooks are in trouble in the long-run as Microsoft is really starting to push their super-low-cost laptops, but that hasn't bothered New York and they just approved the use of Chromebooks in their schools. This is a huge win for Google (and Chromebook manufacturers) as this space was formerly used by Apple and Microsoft. That being said, with the competition dropping their prices, I still think Chrome will not live a long and happy life.

Over the last year, we saw more and more schools using Google Apps for Education. After evaluating it centrally we decided to add Google Apps to our list of approved and supported tools for NYC schools this year. A number of factors drove this decision. First, a number of schools were already using Google Apps for Education. Second, since Google Apps doesn’t require special technical skills, schools were able to customize the tools to meet their specific needs.

This is probably the most insane car video you'll see today. This Ken Block guy can drive! The 4x4 mustang is pretty sweet too.

Skype Gets Better?

Have you ever wished that you could keep up with your Skype contacts without actually downloading the whole client? Well we have good news for you, now you can access this great service over the web! It is nice to see since if you ever need to use this service on someone elses computer you won’t have to download such a big file to it.

To use Skype for Web, users simply sign in on Skype.com. From there, they can connect and start instant messaging directly from their browser. Voice or video calls will require a small plug-in. Now in beta, the service works with Internet Explorer, Chrome on Windows, Firefox and Safari, but it initially will be available only to a small number of users. It will be rolled out worldwide in the coming months, Watson said.

Metal Gear Very Solid

There are many people who are eagerly awaiting the release of the new Metal Gear Solid title, and some of you still have questions when it comes to some versions such as the PC. One question is, “What is the framerate going to be? “ and this has been answered with a simple 60fps. A lot of games are running at this framerate so it isn’t a big letdown, but you would think with a title with this large a cult following that they would do all they can to give those who can use it a better framerate. 


The FPS is locked at 60 for MGSV:GZ.

Smash Bros. Gets Scientific

Ever been crunching numbers on your TI 83/84 calculator and just felt like you needed a gaming break but had none with you? Well you can actually play a version of Smash Bros. on it now! It is availiable for download fromwww.omnimaga.org and is open so you can make modifications yourself. Amazing!

On that screenshot, you can only see one Fox moving. That's only because I don't want my left hand to play against my right hand but I checked, everything works with the other Fox too. For now, they are played on the same calc (with different keys obviously) but for future versions, I was thinking about two solutions: either you use a second calculator as a pad without its screen being used or I use CalcNet as geekboy suggested. That's for future versions anyway, I have other problems to solve.

Facebook Tries a Cleanup

We all know how annoying those Facebook posts that are actually more like ads, and that seem to slip by every filter that we put up and wish that FB would do something about this. As it turns out they are! In January of next year they will start limiting even more of these ad posts from your feed! So we can look forward to a more relevant news feed, hopefully…

Beginning in January 2015, people will see less of this type of content in their News Feeds.As we’ve said before, News Feed is already a competitive place – as more people and Pages are posting content, competition to appear in News Feed has increased. All of this means that Pages that post promotional creative should expect their organic distribution to fall significantly over time.
