Vive, Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift Might Not Make VR a Success

The technology still needs solid content on launch

The week started with the announcement that Valve and mobile phone giant HTC were working together on a new virtual reality device called the Vive, which is designed to include hardware which will eliminate jittering and would make it simpler for gamers to immerse themselves in simulations.



The two companies are demoing the platform during the Game Developers Conference 2015 and they are saying that a consumer version will be launched before the end of the year, although a price has not yet been offered.



During the same event Sony announced a new prototype version of its own Pro...

After All the Delays, GTA 5 Shouldn't Cost Full Price on PC

Patience is a virtue but Rockstar is pushing it a bit far

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been delayed yet again on the PC platform, as Rockstar Games confirmed last week that the long-awaited title is now set to launch in April onto computers, one year and a half after it rolled out onto the PS3 and Xbox 360.



As you can imagine, this hasn't exactly led to the best of reactions from the community, despite a few attempts at compensation from Rockstar. However, it does bring into the question the delays in the video game industry and how patience can be rewarded by developers and publishers.



First up, let's take a look at the curr...

The Weak Link in the Chain

Third-party components are also a responsibility

There are very few companies today that can control all aspects of their business, since in many cases certain operations or services rely on solutions created and/or managed by a different entity.



In most cases, the choice to use products from a different entity stems from financial or technical reasons. However, apart from benefits, this also comes with a security risk that may have a significant impact on the business, unless proper measures are taken to reduce it or even eliminate it.



Recent examples include big names, such as UK’s communication provider TalkTalk and C...

What Will Google Call Its Next Nexus Smartphone?

Rumors about the next-gen Nexus smartphone already emerged

In the last few days, rumors about what’s shaping up to be Google’s upcoming Nexus smartphone have surfaced online.



It appears the search giant is already gearing up for a release that’s whispered to be taking place sometime in the second half of the year.



Interestingly enough, we’re told that Google will be looking in the direction of China in order to choose a manufacturing partner. After working with LG, ASUS, Samsung, Motorola or HTC, Google seemingly wants a fresh perspective on its new Nexus lineup.



In an earlier piece, we explained why there&rs...

Madonna at 56: Brave Fighter Against Ageism, or “Put It Away, Grandma”?

The Queen of Pop continues to be controversial, promises she will never change no matter how much it upsets you

Madonna Louise Ciccone is 56 years old. She’s (almost) the same age as my mother, and I can promise you I would positively die of embarrassment if, come tomorrow, my mom decided she wanted to wear the outfits Madge puts on in public, to bare breast and other parts of her body on red carpets, or to date guys younger than me even.



But my mother is not Madonna: more important than the fact that she doesn’t have her figure is that she was never the kind to take society’s rules and wipe herself with them, let alone to do so publicly. She was never a rebel and she neve...

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Could Be the Last of Their Lines

Microsoft and Sony might prepare other types of devices

Both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are now past the one-year mark since launch and have gone through two Christmas shopping seasons, during which they have managed to deliver some impressive performances in terms of units moved to gamers and revenue generated for their creators at Microsoft and Sony.



So this might seem a bad moment to think about the possibility that the current generation of hardware might actually be the final one to use the current format and that we might be moving towards a future where gaming is no longer tied down to a device and most experiences will a...

Give Me a Reason to Buy the Apple WATCH

Why would someone pay $350 or more on an Apple Watch?

I don't remember exactly the last time I bought a watch. It was probably around 2006. Back then the iPhone was not out yet. The watch I got was a smart one - the Swatch Paparazzi. I had news notifications (via MSN), different watch faces and even an Outlook integration.



But the device itself was bulky, the battery did not last too long and the charger connector was prone to get broken. And it did. Less than an year later!



I also had to remove it from my hand whenever I was on the computer because it was heavy and too bulky.



That was my first and probably last experience ...
