MSI Gaming Laptops and All-in-Ones at CES 2014

We stopped in at the MSI Suite to look at their latest gaming laptops and other goodies. They have a very thin 17-inch unit that can hold four hard drives (drools). This beast will run a RAID 0 array on three drives and a single drive for other storage. It's crazy. Details here!

Apple iWatch Rumors

More rumors coming out today about the Apple iWatch over at Pocket Lint. The fact that Apple has been working on a smartwatch won't come as much of a surprise but now the "leaked" pictures and rumors are going to be coming fast and furious as it is being reported that the iWatch will be launched in October. According to supply chain details it's looking like the watch will look similar to the Motorola 360 smartwatch but since it's made by Apple it will be "revolutionary". For more on this set of rumors head on over here.

Design details of the Apple iWatch have been revealed by an analyst that claims to have got the information from within Apple's supply chain.

Brian Blair of Rosenblatt Securities alleges that his sources in Taiwan are insistent that the new smartwatch from the Cupertino company will have a round face, much like the Motorola Android Wear device, Moto 360.

The Order of Gaming

In the gaming industry it seems that people are always trying to brag their graphics up, but as it turns out even a game developer is saying that the PS4 is at the top of the consoles for graphics. The studio, Ready At Dawn, has said that,  "We couldn’t have achieved this graphical fidelity with any other console," and this is in reference to their new coming title, The Order 1886. This statement was made by J. Goldberg, community manager for Ready At Dawn. Sony will hopefully be happy with this praise, as it is not easy to get.

The studio used full performance capture for all characters in the game, as well as the same character model for gameplay sequences and cutscenes, making the transition from one to the other almost seamless. "We're moving the camera in space, we're not loading in a video."

Halo: Nightfall First Look

I know that Halo is a religion to some people and I have to admit, I'm a fan of the culture. I'm not to ashamed to admit that I may have lined up for the midnight launch for the last two games in this series. The game is now jumping the gap to the small screen with Halo: Nightfall and as cool as the game is, I had my doubts about a TV series. Take a look and see for yourself.

 

China Makes Less Terrifying Driverless Car

China's Baidu is working on making a driverless car that isn't quite as terrifying as the Google car. With the Google car, there is no steering wheel at all and if something goes terribly wrong you only have a "panic" button to save you. The car is more autonomous rather than fully driverless. The different in practical application - if things are going well - is minimal, but a driver could take full control at any time. This would make me feel much safer for sure.

"I think in the future, a car should not totally replace the driver but should really give the driver freedom," Yu said. "Freedom means the car is intelligent enough to operate by itself, like a horse, and make decisions under different road situations. Whenever the driver wants to resume control, you can do that."
