In other words, it is often possible for investors and traders to beat different markets – but the technology is simply a tool to help them rather than being superior, in ...

A Blast From The Past: Panasonic FZ-1 3DO

Why now? How the hell did I remember the 3DO? The truth is that I wasn't particularly searching for one, nor even thinking about it; I simply was performing some random vintage gaming searches online, on Amazon and eBay mostly. And there was the encounter. Listed on eBay at around USD 180, it came as a total surprise and a massive vintage splash. It made me smile. I roamed around my old Tech magazines and then again a bit more on the internet, trying to revive old 3DO memories. "If you think ...

Assassin’s Creed IV Gameplay Trailer

A new trailer for the upcoming addition to the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed IV, was launched today and one word to describe it would be... better than expected... okay, maybe three words then. This trailer differs from the others in that it gives us the first look at actual gameplay and I have to say that it looks great. The first thing that I noticed is that this game seems to promise more of an open world than previous games in the series. This is in terms of which islands to explore ...

Android, More Than Just a Mobile OS

Think of the word Android and the first thing that pops into your head is probably a list of desserts (Jellybean, Ice-Cream Sandich, etc...). All joking aside, Android has become known as that mobile OS trying to (and almost succeeding) at beating Apple's renowned iOS. However, what people tend to forget is that Android is an open-source piece fo software; this means that anyone with the required skills can program it according to their will and apply it to their tech of choice. This is mainly ...

Nintendo Land Review

In a nutshell, Nintendo Land can be described as the WiiU’s version of WiiSports; a game solely designed for showcasing what the WiiU has to offer in terms of new hardware and features. The game consists of a main hub generally divided into three categories: competitive multiplayer, cooperative multiplayer and single player. To be direct and to the point, the single player games are neither Nintendo Land’s nor the WiiU’s strongest selling point. At the end of the day, they mostly feel like ...
