This business card-sized Japanese phone bucks the giant-phone trend

With Apple and most Android OEMs making increasingly larger phones while Apple discontinues the small iPhone SE, it’s pretty clear where the smartphone market is going—at least for the near term. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some companies bucking the trend by going smaller, not bigger. Earlier this week, we heard that Palm’s brand is rebooting with a very small phone that’s not meant to be your main portable computing device. But this phone from Kyocera is even smaller.

YouTube video embeds now include a ‘Subscribe’ button

Up until now, if you saw a YouTube video you liked embedded in a website, you had to click through the video to YouTube’s page in order to subscribe to that channel. Now, YouTube is making it a little easier for viewers to see the videos they want (and for channel operators to grab those subscribers). Going forward, YouTube embeds will feature a “Subscribe” button.

Intel Core i9 9900K review: the fastest gaming CPU money can buy

Intel has been marketing the new Core i9 9900K as the fastest gaming CPU money can buy – and while a massive amount of controversy has surrounded the accuracy of pre-release benchmarks, the logic is sound. After all, the existing Core i7 8700K holds the title, ahead of its Ryzen 7 2700X competition. The new 9900K adds two additional cores and four threads, while boosting frequencies and increasing cache – improving on the 8700K in every way. Going into this review, my only question was this: to what extent do games actually make use of the additional resources? After all, the 8700K was already a performance monster, and arguably under-utilised. Do we actually need more gaming power?

Everything you need to know about the 2018 MacBook

While Apple’s higher-range MacBook Pros received an update earlier this year, the entry-level MacBook options are in desperate need of an overhaul. Rumors have been swirling as to what exactly that device will be, but we know the company has something up its sleeve for a cheaper MacBook in 2018.

HTC Plans to Bring Hand & Finger Tracking to Vive Pro

Today at the the World Conference on VR Industry in China, HTC announced plans to bring hand & finger tracking to Vive Pro via the headset’s front-facing cameras. Back in April HTC launched new tools to help developers take advantage of the Vive Pro’s largely unused front-facing cameras. Now it seems the company plans to double down on that by adding hand and finger tracking that works “natively” on the headset.

Have Black Ops 4’s servers been downgraded?

The Black Ops 4 beta was as smooth as a pre-release game can get, with multiple tests confirming the game was running on dedicated servers with a 60Hz send rate from both client and server sides. Even when the game launched on October 17, Black Ops 4’s multiplayer performance was relatively smooth. However, the following days revealed increased reports of kill-trading, unbalanced corner peeking and poor hit registration. According to a new study by reddit user Smcro, Black Ops 4’s multiplayer is currently running at only 20Hz from the server side, a significant downgrade from the 60Hz the game was using earlier.

The Fancy Display Tech Samsung Apparently Wants for Its Future Phones Sounds Amazing

Samsung is one of the clear leaders in mobile display tech, and its screens are found in a wide range of flagship devices including its own Galaxy phones and those of its biggest competitors like Apple. However, one of the biggest complaints about the Galaxy S9 is that looks virtually identical to last year’s device, a sentiment that arose largely due to the fact that Samsung didn’t do much to change up the S9’s screen. However, based on a number of leaks and rumors, that may not be an issue for Samsung’s next big phone, which could boast one of the most advanced mobile displays yet.

GameWisp is Saying Goodbye

The GameWisp subscription platform will be shutting its doors in January of 2019. For more than half a decade, we’ve had the privilege of being a part of the gaming content ecosystem and working with countless amazing creators. In that time, the world of “Let’s Plays” and the earliest of Twitch streams has turned from niche internet trend to a fundamental part of pop culture, and it’s been an absolute honor to have been along for the ride.

INTEL IS PREPARING FOR A DUAL-SCREEN COMPUTER FUTURE

At Intel’s headquarters in Santa Clara, California, Dieter Bohn got the chance to see the development process for two prototype devices that could be an early look at what might be coming next for computers. They’re dual-screen tablets that are unlike anything that’s on the market today, but they’re also very far from being finished products you’d want to use.

Microsoft has a platinum edition Xbox One X bundle, but there’s a catch

Microsoft is set to release a special limited edition Xbox One X bundle that includes the console and an Elite wireless controller in a sleek platinum finish. The package deal also contains 3-month subscriptions to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold. The whole bundle is worth about $600. There’s just one catch — it’s not for sale. Microsoft is partnering with Taco Bell in a cross-promotion. Starting on Thursday, October 18, and going through November 21, anyone who orders a $5 “Double Chalupa Box” from Taco Bell will receive a code that they can submit online or via text message that will enter them to win one of the platinum beauties.

‘Rocket League’ cross-platform profiles delayed until 2019

Rocket League’s cross-platform profile system, RocketID, has been pushed back until early next year. Psyonix said that it’s working “incredibly hard to ensure that it’s as intuitive, stable and polished as possible, before releasing it to the world.” When it arrives, RocketID will enable cross-platform parties and friend connections.

‘Friday Night Fortnite’ Tournament: Start/End Times, Rules, Scoring, Prizes And How To Enter

It would be easy to be confused about the name, but take note: this is not Friday Fortnite, the Keemstar-hosted Fortnite tournament that served as the first major professional Fortnite event. Keemstar’s Friday Fortnite was eventually cancelled after Epic kept scheduling Fall/Summer Skirmish events on Friday night, and as a sort of nail in the coffin the developer has apparently decided to start holding its own in-game weekly tournament and naming it Friday Night Fortnite. The first one starts tonight, so read on for rules, timing, scoring and more.

Acer Predator Helios 500 Is Powered By Intel Core i9 Chip

Acer is trying to prove itself to be the best producer of a gaming laptop. The company has added a new laptop product line called the Predator Helios 500. Acer’s new laptop is powered by Intel’s best processors. It also contains hardware options that contain more powerful graphics cards.

Get To Know Acer’s Gaming Laptop Powerhouse

 

If you are an avid gamer, then the Predator Helios 500 is definitely for you. This 17.3-inch gaming laptop brags its overclockable eighth-generation Core i9+ chip. It also has
overclockable Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 with 8 GB of memory. What’s good with this is that you can go all the way up to 64 GB of RAM with a 1 TB SSD.

 

Speaking of its screen, the Predator Helios 500 has two configurations namely: the 1080p or 4K 144 Hz display. Both of these configurations support Nvidia G-Sync. The company’s latest gaming laptop also has Acer’s TrueHarmony audio technology. You can also see a lot of LED lights and this includes a backlit keyboard.

 

 

If you are interested in buying, the price is pegged at $1,999, and this would be arriving at the shelves sometime in June in the United States.
