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.

Google Starts Selling Dot-Coms - Challenges GoDaddy

GoDaddy is probably one of the most popular domain registrars around and they really haven't had a lot of competition. That is about to change as Google Domains has launched in the USA and now you can buy your domain name directly from Google. This could be pretty awesome as they might start competing on service prices and features. Does this mean that Google will eventually branch into web-hosting as well? Time will tell, but for now, go check it out.

A domain name, your address on the Internet, says a lot about who you are and what you do. New domain endings like .guru and .photography can help you find a meaningful address that stands out on the web. Every domain includes website forwarding, email forwarding (help@your_company), simple management tools and other helpful features.

Top Games of 2014

If you're a gamer, you may have bought one or more of these titles that make up the top selling games of 2014. Toipping the list is (surprising to me) Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. With all of the negative hype around this game, I figured it would not be at the top of the list - but I was wrong. What is good to see is that Nintendo had a game on the list as well.

  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
  • Madden NFL 15
  • Destiny
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
  • Minecraft
  • Super Smash Bros (for 3DS and Wii U)
  • NBA 2K15
  • Watch Dogs
  • FIFA 15
  • Call of Duty Ghosts

 

Note: If you're tired of sequel after sequel, STOP buying Call of Duty! It made the list twice. Wow.

Netflix to Offer "The Interview" starting Saturday

I'm not promoting "The Interview" by all means, but I am saying that Netflix knows how to keep on turning up the heat and making their service the one-you-keep-paying-for. They announced that they would be starting to stream this movie just a little over a month since it was released. If they keep up things like that, they'll have a hard time keeping up with the horde of subscribers. Having current content is always a good thing.

In the midst of Netflix's Q4 financial report (if you're wondering - it added the expected amount of subscribers this time, unlike Q3) it revealed a few things viewers will actually be interested in. First of all, it's going to have The Interview available for streaming to US and Canadian subscribers starting Saturday. That puts the Sony Pictures flick on streaming just about a month after its unconventional Christmas Day theater / video on demand launch that netted $40 million online, and ahead of its Blu-ray release February 17th.
