Feenix Nascita & Dimora Review

We have just posted up our review of the Feenix Nascita Mouse and Dimora Mousepad. This is a great and very elegant pair of gaming hardware that will could make you a better gamer. It's not all flashy, but it just plain works. There is something to be said for understated design and the Feenix Nascita mouse and the Dimora mousepad take elegance and quality gaming peripherals to the next level. All the details are in our full review.

When it comes to performance, both the Dimora pad and the Nascita mouse score 10/10. Both performed great. I didn’t have any issues with tracking with this pair or any combination of anything else. There was no mouse lag and the buttons are very responsive. DPI adjustment works instantly and I like the fact that you can change the sensitivity on the fly.

Cortana vs. Siri vs. Google Now

If you're wondering how Google Now ranks when compared to Siri and the new Cortana for Windows Phone. There are no real winners here as each of them win in different areas. It is interesting though how fast Google is when compared to the others. Siri did get more things right though.

Heartbleed Hits Android 4.1.1

If you're an Android user and are currently using Android 4.1.1 on your older device, make sure that you go quickly and update your Google services. There is a flaw in this version of Android that makes it vulnerable and if you are currently using it, you'd better think twice about your data. Thankfully, it is already patched, but you may need to do a manual update in the Google Play store to seal the whole on your device.

Security researchers said that version of Android is still used in millions of smartphones and tablets, including popular models made by Samsung Electronics Co., HTC Corp. and other manufacturers. Google statistics show that 34 percent of Android devices use variations of the 4.1 software.

PS4 sells 7 Million units

Since the release of the PS4, Sony has been able to already sell 7 million units and admits they can't keep up with the demand yet. This is good news for Sony as some of their other divisions have been dragging them down and the success of the PS4 might help that temporarily. Phys.org has the full story.

The PS4 is up against Microsoft's Xbox One, and Nintendo's Wii U for dominance of the digital home entertainment market at a time that consoles are under intense pressure to prove their worth in a world of ubiquitous smartphones and tablets for games and videos.

By comparison, the Wii U, launched in late 2012, took more than a year to sell 5.86 million units.

Digital Storm @ CES 2013

We stopped at Digital Storm to check out their latest two products that they have refreshed and beefed up for this coming year.  The Aventum is a beast that has been developed entirely in house and offers exceptional performance.  The system will start at $5,000 and come with a single CPU and a single graphics card.  It will also come liquid cooled with some amazing thermal features.

As an upgrade option, you can get the liquid cooling built with nickel plated copper tubing for a completely custom look.  Digital Storm plans to start selling this system in March of this year and the upgrade options are almost endless.  If you want to spend $10,000 on a system, you’ll be able to drop in four graphics cards, dual Xeon CPUs and a lot more.

Digital Storm has also recently upgraded their Bolt system as well.  We found the Bolt system to be very interesting.  It’s a “Micro Tower” that offers some pretty impressive features including full Core i7 CPU support as well as up to a GTX 670 graphics card from NVIDIA.  This is a tiny system that is big on performance and has a lot of upgrade options as well.  The Bolt will likely be available with custom paint in the near future as well.  You can see in the image below just how awesome this would be.

It’s pretty amazing that this system has so many upgrade options for such a small system.  You don’t have to sacrifice performance for size here as it supports two 3.5” HDDs or a single 3.5” HDD and two 2.5” SSDs.  Make sure to check out the video below for all the details.
