Gaming High

Have you ever wished that you were able to have the experience the joy of gaming on Mount Everest? Me neither. If you are the lucky winner of a contest put out by the makers of Far Cry4, you will be doing just that. Should you win this competition, you will be going to Everest and playing FC4 there on a special piece of equipment made to withstand the harsh environment. This was all announced at comic con this year. Good luck to all who enter!

During a Far Cry 4 panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con event, the developers announced an interesting contest: one person will get the chance to play Far Cry on Mount Everest. The winner will use a specialized (but unspecified) piece of gaming hardware that both allows for playing on the go while also standing up to the harsh weather conditions of the icy mountains.

Microsoft Wants Smartphone Screens to Touch You Back

Microsoft wants to make their phones better than anyone else's. They intend on doing this - not with better hardware, or a better operating system, but with haptics. There are ways that haptic feedback technology can be implemented to make it feel that your phone screen has textures, is sticky or smooth and more. This is pretty nifty, but it doesn't strike me as a real selling feature. Of course we've had versions of this for years with keyboard clicks and vibration feedback, but this is a step up from the basics. Apparently, Fujitsu is lining up to make a tablet with this new tech as early as next year.

Several methods can be used to create such feedback. One way is to put a material that bends when charged under a screen to simulate a click, while another uses electrostatic vibration to put a cushion of air under your finger, making a surface feel smooth or sticky. I've experienced such haptic feedback myself, and while some sensations are accurate, others are just weird.

Linksys WRT1900AC Wireless AC Router

We have just posted up our review of the Linksys WRT1900AC Wireless AC Router. This is Linksys' return to the WRT-Series that made them famous a few years back and we take a look to see if this router has what it takes to win our hearts. It claims pretty fast speeds, a long list of features and it's powered by a 1.2GHz Dual-Core chip. It shouldn't lack power and we find out if it delivers. Check our review for all the details.

Overall the performance and package of the WRT1900AC is very good. Linksys has put their best foot forward in order to try and regain the affection of home and office users worldwide. Their moto with this product is, "Performance, Perfected" and they come very close on a lot of things. The wired performance is great and it comes close to the fastest we've seen. In terms of wireless connectivity the results between this router and my laptop are the best I've seen or experienced.
