Blizzcon: Nothing Else Matters

Blizzard is the company that really figured out monthly gaming subscriptions and they've been doing very well. With the number of World of Warcraft, Starcraft and other craft users still growing, they are making nothing but money and they have so much that they hired Metallica to come and perform and BlizzCon 2014. That is ridiculously awesome. Even if you're not a much of a gamer, you'll want to tune in as they'll be streaming the event live.

We’re thrilled to announce that Metallica will be performing the closing concert at BlizzCon 2014, playing before a sold-out convention crowd on the night of November 8! If you didn’t score tickets to the show, don’t worry—you can still get a front-row seat from home with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket.

Microsoft Kills Nokia Officially

Nokia has been struggling for many years and while the purchase by Microsoft was supposed to breathe new life into the dying brand, it didn't. Microsoft has some compelling products, but they are often too late and too limited when they hit the shelves. Now that Microsoft has a new CEO with a new "prime directive", the Nokia brand is getting the axe - but they will keep the Lumia name. Introducing, Microsoft Lumia. I'm sure that will make their products better.

Microsoft's decision to drop the Nokia brand itself doesn't mean that Nokia is going away fully. Nokia still exists as a separate company without its phones business, and the Finnish firm now focuses on mapping and network infrastructure. Microsoft's choice to use Lumia as the Nokia replacement won't come as a surprise to many. Nokia's Windows Phone apps have been rebranded to Lumia recently, and holiday ads will be pushing Lumia instead of Nokia.

Google's New Switch Campaign

Google is now trying to help you (and by you, I mean Apple users) get ready to switch from your Apple iPhone to an new Lollipop-enabled phone. They are doing this by helping you push your files, music, media and videos to their cloud in anticipation that it will be easier for you once you go pick up that new Android 5.0 device. It's a good guide for anyone to make sure their stuff is backed up - even if you already are on the Google team.

Transfer photos stored on your iPhone or iPad
Google+ Photos is a great way to have all your pics - past and future - in one place, with unlimited private storage* and accessible from any internet connected device. There are always lots more choices on Google Play to find the photo app that works perfectly for you.

What is more awesome that a Rolls Royce Wraith? Stunting in a Rolls Royce Wraith and driving like a mad-man in this very, very luxury automobile.

 

Another Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo isn't going all that well when it comes to Wii U sales, and their 3DS is a little flat when compared to their original NDS. That being said, it is still churning along and trying to compete against smartphones. We've seen quite a few revisions of the NDS and 3DS over the past few years and right now in Japan their is a new 3DS that's not quite XL, but not quite original. It looks to be all winner though.

The New Nintendo 3DS — out now in Japan, next month in Australia and New Zealand, and next year elsewhere — has a faster processor than its predecessor. It has customizable faceplates. It does a neat trick that makes the 3D effect much better. It even has a second analog stick (of sorts).

Microsoft to Launch Smartwatch Soon?

Microsoft has decided that they want to join the Smartwatch fray. This is not a surprise as the margin on these devices right now is very high. Unfortunately, they are late to the party - again. That being said, I think Microsoft is one of the companies that could actually get wearables right. They do make very good hardware, it just doesn't catch on and compete when they are usually the last horse out of the gate.

A peer back into the annals of history shows that once upon a time in 2003, Microsoft hatched plans to release a timepiece which could receive information about weather, traffic and goodness knows what else for the princely sum of $10. How did this technological marvel work? Using FM radio, which even in the early noughties was about as high-tech as the spinning jenny.

Amazon Kindle Voyage

Amazon has pretty much pioneered the eBook reader with the Kindle, and even though tablets are all the rage, the Kindle is still setting the pace and isn't slowing down. Every year or so, they refresh their eBook reader line and the latest installment on the high-end is the Voyager. This takes eBook reading to a whole new level with some great specs (for an eBook reader). The truth is, I'd take one.

Actually, with the Voyage, you may never move your thumb at all. A pair of gray lines and dots on either side of the front bezel can be touched lightly to advance the page or go back - "PagePress," in Amazon parlance. Haptic feedback gives your hand a little buzz as affirmation that the command has registered.

Halo Collection Arrives with a 20GB Patch

If you've been eagerly waiting for the 343 Industries Halo Collection for your Xbox One, you may have heard that there is a 20GB Day 1 Patch. That sucks. Plain and simple. This patch was known before the disks were shipped so there is a bit of an outcry as to why gamers have to deal with this kind of issue. The reality is that because of this patch, the game collection fits on a single Blu-Ray disc. Without the patch, you'd need a couple of discs. If you are super chapped, you can at least pre-load the patch before the game arrives.

While we won't know for sure what's included in the update until it arrives, O'Connor's claim that the game was simply too large to fit on one disc has merit. As we've explained, Halo: The Master Chief Collection includes remastered versions of the first four Halo games, as well as over 100 multiplayer maps.
