Pepcom Highlights from CES 2014

We stopped by Pepcom this year and saw a few nifty things from Piston, drooled over the Lenovo 4K display and checked out a "fair" way to cheat at gaming. The Red Dot is not a cheat - it's just a fancy way to hipfire accurately - and it's awesome. Check it out!

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are marching ever closer to our 3rd year of Android App Pick.

Take a look and find out how nukes play into this awesome game!

The end of the Surface Tablet?

Microsoft's Surface tablet has probably surprised some people that it has lasted as long as it has (3 generations so far), but if Digitimes has the story right the 3rd version might be the last version as it is being rumored that Microsoft is looking to get out of the tablet hardware market. It is being reported that Microsoft has lost over a billion dollars over the life of the Surface product line which is probably enough reason to call it quits.

Microsoft continues to see weak sales for its Surface Pro 3 tablet and is reportedly planning to cancel the product line since shipment performance has been far lower than expectations, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Lacking a sufficient number of distribution partners, plus high prices, the first- and second-generation Surface tablets are estimated to have created losses of about US$1.7 billion, the sources noted.

Seeing large-size smartphones impacting tablet demand, the sources are concerned about upcoming demand for the Surface Pro 3.

Samsung Sets Sights on Faster WiFi

Samsung is always pushing the limits of pretty much everything and they are now setting their sights on Wi-Fi. According to their latest results, they figure that WiFi will be able to be at least 5 times faster here in the near future. As we've been testing out actual bandwidth for WiFi, Powerline and Wired networking, it will be interesting if this boost is merely in theory alone or if the hardware can actually deliver.

Samsung says its Wi-Fi technology will open up the door to data transmission speeds of up to 4.6 gigabits per second (Gbps), or 575 megabytes (MB) per second. This would be about five times faster than the current ceiling for Wi-Fi speeds for consumer electronics devices, which stands at around 866 megabits per second (Mbps), or 108 MB per second.
