Here's the Best Reason to Wear the Apple Watch

When it comes to getting to know stuff the Apple Watch is the best device to have on you and find out what's important

The Apple Watch is here. Or, at least, in a few lucky countries that can order it in the first batch. A month ago I was still trying to figure out why would I need to wear the new smart watch from Apple.

My main point was: I do not wear any jewelry, nor a regular watch. Why would I get this new one now and pay for it a hefty prime. 

The notification avalanche

In my day to day job I work as a journalist. So getting notified and reacting fast to those notifications seems like it's part of my Job description. I work on a retina MacBook Pro, I have an iPhone and an iPad so I am already part o...

Steam Should Encourage Donations Instead of Paid Skyrim Mods

Pay-to-play isn't the way to go with mods on PC

Without a doubt the biggest development in terms of PC gaming last week was the introduction of premium mods for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim via Valve's own Steam Workshop. The move generated a huge backlash from most PC users but was supported by others, including mod makers that want to get paid for their efforts.

However, both sides raise interesting points that, apparently, weren't considered at all by Valve and Bethesda before this new move was released to all Steam users who have Skyrim tied to their accounts.

Modding has always been free, more or less

First up, let's talk a bit a...

An Honest Talk About Diet Pills: Why It’s Best to Stay Clear of Them

Never ever trust pills, supplements and all sorts of other chemical cocktails that promise miraculous weight loss

This week, the death of 21-year-old Eloise Aimee Parry of Shrewsbury, UK, grabbed headlines. The young woman, a student at Glyndwr University, passed away after having taken one too many diet pills that she bought online. 

As detailed in a statement issued by medical experts at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, Eloise died because the diet pills pushed her metabolism into overdrive and triggered a fever spike. Eventually, her heart gave out. 

How and why the pills killed Eloise Aimee Parry

The pills that the 21-year-old took hoping that they would help her lose weight contained a toxic compo...

Nokia to Launch an Android Phone in 2016, What Should We Expect?

Nokia has a brand new phone coming next year

There has been a lot of fuss about Nokia lately. First off, the Finnish company announced that it was purchasing the French telecom equipment maker Alcatel Lucent for the sum of $16.6 / €15.6.

On top of that, Nokia claimed it was in the process of reviewing its HERE Maps business, which it might even end up selling. As revealed in recent reports, titans of the industry such as Apple, Facebook and Amazon are looking into the acquisition.

But the biggest news came towards the end of this week, when Nokia officially confirmed it was planning to release its next Android smartphone in 2016.

However...

It's Fun to Pick on Call of Deus Ex: Transhuman Ops III but I'm Still Pretty Excited

It's like a Dragon Ball Z fusion, only with cyborgs

The new Call of Duty trailer, setting the scene for the upcoming Black Ops 3, looked eerily familiar, and it seems that I'm not the only one to think that.

As I was watching it, I had to check to see whether I was indeed watching the right thing. I feared that my hand had gravitated toward something Deus Ex-related due to sheer force of habit.

But no, I was indeed watching the teaser for Black Ops 3, which got me excited and sad at the same time. If you haven't seen it, it's the second video at the bottom of this article.

On one hand, the Call of Duty games are usually very dumb. They l...

Would You Give Up on Windows 7 and Install Windows 8 If It Were Free?

Believe it or not, but the Windows 8 hate continues

Windows 8 was launched on October 26, 2012 to breathe life into Microsoft’s desktop operating system and give the software giant a chance in the tablet industry, but contrary to what the Softies expected, success on the short term was terrible.

Despite Microsoft’s praises, Windows 8 performed well below expectations and although company executives have always refused to say it loud and clear, this new experiment more or less proved to be very similar to Windows Vista, which in its turn was often referred to as Microsoft’s biggest OS fail.

But comparing Windows 8 to Windows Vista ha...

Grand Theft Auto 5 Is Good on PC but Mods Can Make It Great

The key to lasting appeal and success is to embrace mods

After a pretty huge amount of waiting, Grand Theft Auto 5 is now available on the PC platform. Many fans had mixed expectations about the new open world game, given the rather common problems experienced by other major titles nowadays, but the consensus, barring some issues, is that Rockstar's come up with a great port of its already old game.

However, as we saw soon after its actual launch, the game makes it very hard for modders to modify existing files by encrypting them, and then using various security methods to ensure that people can't alter the game, either in its single-player story o...
