Microsoft Surface is doing well

One of the happy surprises for Microsoft has been their Surface lineup of products. Microsoft moved $1.35 billion worth of Surface tablets thanks to their second quarter fiscal results filings. Their were aiming to move $1.1 billion worth of Surfaces so they've got to be happy with the $1.35 billion worth of sales. Windows Central takes a look at the Surface lineup.

Microsoft has just announced their second quarter fiscal year 2016 results and the numbers are looking outstanding beating most estimates in all divisions.

One area where of healthy growth was with their Surface line bolstered by the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book. The solid numbers were attained despite ongoing criticisms of stability and OS software issues.

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!

One Plus One Gets Pre-Order - For an Hour

If you've been tired of all the hoops to jump through in order to get a One Plus One, things are looking up! You will be able to pre-order this device on October 27, 2014 - for one hour. That's right. One hour. Obviously they are either trying to stimulate demand by lack of supply or they simply can't make them fast enough with their current production. Either way, if you want to get in on the goodness, check out the link below.

The One Plus One has a 5.5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 13MP camera, 3100mAh battery, and is available with 16GB or 64GB of storage. Unfortunately, each size does not come with a color option and instead the 16GB version will come in Silk White and the 64GB will come in Sandstone Black. The 16GB model will retail for $299, while the 64GB model is a mere $349 USD.
