Xbox 360 and PS3 Don't Get a Campaign in CoD:BO3

Although I do have an Xbox One, I find it frustrating that companies like Microsoft and Sony claim that their older consoles "will be fully supported for at least three years" and yet we are seeing more and more titles released only for the next generation consoles. Also, as is the case with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, the releases for the older consoles are getting stripped down. I understand that things have to be cut in order to move forward, but the big guys shouldn't have promised what they aren't delivering. More information on the lack of campaign for the 360 and PS3 below.

Though there will not be a campaign offering, Black Ops 3 will still release on Xbox 360 and PS3 with the multiplayer and zombie components. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will retail $49.99, while the XB1/PS4/PC version will retail for $59.99.

iPhone 6S Camera vs. the World

There was a time when the iPhone camera was the camera to beat and now it has been done by more than a few companies. Still, the new iPhone 6S has a few tricks and features up its sleeve that make it a decent choice for a wireless device as well as a take-everywhere camera. If you want to see how it compares to the G4, and GS6 make sure you check the link below as they have samples and more.

One of the design decisions that might have photographers dismayed is that Apple retained the same f/2.2 aperture for both its rear and front cameras, whereas competitors like Samsung and LG offer brighter lenses in their flagship phones. And, the inclusion of 4K video is great, but the iPhone 6S still doesn’t boast the optical image stabilization that the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6S Plus have, which Apple claims is because the mechanical stabilization system requires more space (and not because it’s trying to establish a product differentiator).

Android Marshmallow is Coming Soon

There are a few reasons to get excited about Android Marshmallow. Some of the new features and more technical and provide better security and control permissions of the apps you use, yet others are pretty handy, such as mobile payments, native finger print support, really handy batter management, rotating home screen, and the custom removal of icons from your status bar. All this and more coming to your Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013) and 9 on October 5.

It’s expected that the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, 2013 edition Nexus 7, and the Nexus 9 will all start receiving the Android 6.0 software on October 5. Sadly, however, it seems several older generation Nexus phones and tablets are being left out of the picture. Lollipop will remain the latest (and last) software update we’ll ever see on the Nexus 4, 2012 edition Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10.

ZTE Grand X 2 Z850 Review

We have just posted up our review of the ZTE Z850 Grand X 2 Smartphone. This is their followup to last years ZTE Grand X Plus and this unit packs a slightly faster processor, a larger battery, decent camera and more. It's a solid mid-range device that looks and performs like a champ. The icing on the silicon-infused-proverbial cake is that this device will only set you back $150 - off contract. Take a look and see why ZTE really deserves serious consideration.

One thing that I do like about ZTE devices is the inclusion of a MicroSD card slot. They do this to make up for the 16GB of internal storage that is showing its age. With the included software, the device ships with about 11GB of available storage. It certainly is nice that the Grand X 2 will support up to a 64GB MicroSD card.

Apple Music Honeymoon is Over

Apple Music made it's debut a little over a month ago and there was a lot of love for the streaming service - when it was free. Now that it has rolled into a subscription service, there are many users that have decided to pull the plug and go back to their previous streaming service of choice. There is some good commentary as to why this is a valid choice - even though Apple Music integrates really well into all your favorite Apple devices. Check the link below.

Before and after the update, significant bugs I've encountered include music purchased from iTunes not appearing in the "My Music" section of the app and playlists not syncing from mobile to iTunes on the desktop. Another bug asks you to sign up for Apple Music when you select a track to play, even after you've signed up for a subscription. I've also encountered issues with the live Beats 1 radio station abruptly stopping or freezing.
