We have two new gaming toys from NVIDIA this morning, the SHIELD Tablet and SHIELD Controller. Both devices are part of the newly-named “SHIELD Family,” which also includes last year’s SHIELD, which will now be known as SHIELD Portable.
The SHIELD Tablet and Controller have been specifically designed for gamers, allowing players the best performance and gaming experience they could ever hope for while not on their gaming rig at home. Ultimately, NVIDIA wants to allow gamers to play mobile games, as well as PC games, in a way which was not possible before. (more…)
Since 2014 is turning out to be the year of the micro SD slot – G3, Galaxy S5 and One (M8) all have them – you should probably think about picking up a new high-speed micro SD card if you don’t have one already. Amazon is currently hosting one of their regularly scheduled deals on SanDisk cards, with prices slashed at up to 76%.
You can grab a 16GB micro SD card for $11.12 (44% off), 32GB card for $16.76 (76% off), or a 64GB card for $36.95 (63% off). All cards are Class 10, so they can produce transfer speeds up to 30MB/s. All cards also come with an adapter.

Samsung, in its latest ad targeted directly at iPhone owners getting excited about the larger display that has been rumored to finally arrive in the next phone from Apple, took the chance to remind those users that it has been at least two years now without that display, and yet a bigger, better display was right in front of them this whole time. Of course, Samsung is talking about the display in the Galaxy S5 or a number of other Galaxy products.
I think we will all laugh when Apple revolutionizes the big display. As Samsung points out, it will likely be “awesome” and “blow your mind.”
What Hummers? (more…)
