Comic book lovers rejoice! Google Play Books has released a way to get your superhero fix in with buying more than one issue at a time! As celebration of this, there is a sale on certain comics and range from $.99 $3.00 apiece!

Google Play Books and DC Entertainment are showing off their super friendship once again, but, this time, for readers who'd rather consume comics in bite-sized portions. As of today, you can grab single issues from the publisher directly from Mountain View's media market. To celebrate, there's even a sale on the likes of Aquaman and Adventure Comicsfor $0.99 an issue, while a handful of others including Batman and Green Arrow are under $3 apiece.

Charge Your Phone Battery in 30 Seconds

Battery technology hasn't changed much over the past 10 years, but that could be about to change. Storedot is showing off a battery and charger that has the ability to charge your phone in about 30 seconds. This is pretty nifty and not only requires crazy amount of power to charge that fast, but it also requires a totally different battery technology that's not Lithium-ion. Take a look at the video below.

Heartbleed Bug - The Passwords you need to change now

Most likely you've heard about the new Heartbleed bug that is hitting the internet hard and is potentially going to cause a ton of issues, mainly in the fact that your passwords and credit card info could be stolen. Mashable has comprised a list of websites that have potentially been hit and shows you which ones it might be a good idea to change your password on.

An encryption flaw called the Heartbleed bug is already being called one of the biggest security threats the Internet has ever seen. The bug has affected many popular websites and services — ones you might use every day, like Gmail and Facebook — and could have quietly exposed your sensitive account information (such as passwords and credit card numbers) over the past two years.

 

Age of Empires: World Domination Coming to iOS, Android & WinPhone

While PC Gaming may be the biggest player on the market, mobile games have received a lot of attention lately as well. Microsoft has even noticed and is just announced that they are bringing Age of Empires: World Domination exclusively to mobile (for now). The good news is that it is slated to launch on Apple, Android and Windows Phone devices. Quite likely it will launch on Android first, Apple second and then a month or so later - on Windows Phone. That's my guess according to their track record.

Roccat @ CES 2013

We made a stop by Roccat today to check out some of their newest products. Like most other Roccat products, the newest additions to their lineup are made specifically with gamers in mind. The first product we saw was the Ryos MK Pro keyboard. This is a mechanical keyboard with your choice of 4 different cherry MX switches and is the first keyboard to offer individual key illumination. Individual key illumination means you can illuminate only the buttons that you are using in a specific game, or you can change the colors of specific important buttons, or pretty much anything lighting scheme you can think up. Roccat will also offer the Ryos keyboard in other flavors with less features at a lower price.

Also being displayed this year is Roccat’s new software called Power-Grid which allows you to use your smartphone to control things like skype, teamspeak, game macros, news, weather, computer performance statistics, and much much more without ever having to exit out of your game. The Power-Grid software will be free for the base program (extra functions and premium apps will be extra)  and you will be able to make your own apps and customize it to do whatever you want. At first this might not seem like the most useful program but after we experienced it first and we thought up dozens of uses that would make it quite handy. Roccat will be releasing this software for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone (release date still unknown). You can find out more about Power-Grid and even sign up to be a beta tester over at Roccat's website.
