Luxa2 @ CES 2014

We took at a look at some of the mobile products from Luxa2 and saw that they have embraced Qi wireless charging in ways that we wish other companies would. They have a few really nifty products and you can check them out in our CES 2014 coverage!

Monoprice at CES 2015 - More than just cables

CES 2015 continues to roll on and today we had the chance to stop by and see the folks at Monoprice and some of their new products they've introduced for the upcoming year. Monoprice was at one time best know for their cables and accessories, but they've continued to add new products, lots and lots of new products. Monoprice was proudly showing off their new 28" 60Hz 4K monitor. There have been a good number of 4k monitors hitting the market in recent months, however, Monoprice is offering theirs for $499 USD which is going to be tough to beat.

In addition to Monoprice's new 28" 4K monitor, they were also showing off their 30" 2560x1440 which retails for about the same money. This panel has higher quality color reproduction which justifies the higher price-per-pixel.

Move Over 2K Phone Displays, Sharp Has 4K

While a retina screen is pretty impressive, there are several companies that have higher pixel density that Apple's retina display. To take you into the next technology revolution, Sharp shows off their new 4K 5.5-inch display that packs in an incredible 806 pixels per inch. Of course with that said, it appears that 8K mobile displays are being worked on, but they could be years away. The 4K screen is coming in 2016 however.

Still, it's only 2015, and we're "only" enjoying 1440p resolution displays on our high-end Android devices. You'd be forgiven if you can't quite figure out the practical purpose of 4K smartphone screens, seeing that those 2K displays we mentioned are already considered "overkill" by many consumers and manufacturers alike.

Skyrim Causes a Little Steam on Steam

As many are aware, Valve has tried to add a pay for mods system to Skyrim mods in the workshop. Steam has rescinded this and will be refunding anybody who paid money for mods their cash. This is due to the mass disdain for the new system held by the modding community of Skyrim.

To help you understand why we thought this was a good idea, our main goals were to allow mod makers the opportunity to work on their mods full time if they wanted to, and to encourage developers to provide better support to their mod communities. We thought this would result in better mods for everyone, both free & paid. We wanted more great mods becoming great products, like Dota, Counter-strike, DayZ, and Killing Floor, and we wanted that to happen organically for any mod maker who wanted to take a shot at it.
