HyperX Cloud Stinger Review

We have just posted up our review of the HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset. This headset promises a lot of features for only a little money, but often these promises are too good to be true. Take a look at our review to see if it delivers or if your money would be best spent elsewhere.

In looking back on this headset one can’t help but be in awe of the great quality this headset has to offer at such an affordable price. The signature memory foam padding along with the light weight make for a combination that allows for long extended hours of gaming with a very comfortable experience. From time to time I almost forgot I was wearing the headset...

Google Asked to Remove a Billion Pirate Searches a Year

Google gets a lot of email. In fact, they get over 1 billion requests a year to remove pirate related searches from their results. There are a lot of "pirate links" floating around the web and with the current crackdown against piracy, it's no surprise that Google gets hit up thousands of times a day to help put a stop to this. The crazy thing is that out of those billion plus links, over 908 million were removed because they do in fact infringe.

More than 90 percent of the links, 908,237,861 were in fact removed. The rest of the reported links were rejected because they were invalid, not infringing, or duplicates of earlier requests. In total, Google has now processed just over two billion allegedly infringing URLs from 945,000 different domains.

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.

Digital Storm at CES 2014

Digital Storm has definitely been working hard since we last interviewed them during CES 2013. We were really excited to get a first hand look at what they’ve been up to.  See Digital Storm's enthusiasm about the new Bolt II and Aventum II in this interview!

ZOTAC at CES 2015

ZOTAC was showing off their full lineup of ZBOX devices which no matter how many times you see them it is hard not to be impressed at the small size of their systems and the amount of performance they can pack in. The ZBOX Pico series was being shown off and is being offered in AMD and Intel powered solutions, both in a crazy small package that is small enough that you could fit it in your pocket. 

 

The ZBOX series also includes the E-Series devices that are a little bit bigger than devices in the Pico series yet have enough power to easily power 4k displays @60 Hz all in a very small box. The E-Series EN860 that was being shown off features an Intel i5 4210U CPU with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphics card which makes the EN860 pack quite a punch in a small package and is enough power to replace most peoples desktop computers.
