You know that …
BlackBerry pulled a surprise move this morning when it announced that it’s purchasing mobile device management vendor Good Technology for $425 million in cash. It signals that BlackBerry, which has lost most of its worldwide handset marketshare, is shifting its focus by expanding its mobile enterprise security platform. In a way, this shift makes sense, as BlackBerry has always been… Read More —> Read More
Sith lightsabers are red. R2-D2’s lights are blue. Answer four questions, and this William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Sonnet Generator will make a love poem just for you.
The ZTE Axon is definitely a strange beast. Unlike your usual Chinese brand smartphone, it launched first in the US. When it did launch in China, it took on a slightly different form, the Axon Elite which adds three biometric security features to the already high end smartphone. Now, after barely two months, ZTE is taking the IFA 2015 floor … —> Read More
If you spend any time around young children you’ll know what a soothing and calming influence a tablet can be, but it’s potentially a pretty dangerous one too—there’s plenty of unwholesome content out there on the internet and app store for your little friend to accidentally stumble across. Here are the best ways to make an iPad kid-proof before you hand it over.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve highlighted a number of videos depicting airplanes taking off at breakneck speed and astounding angles. From an F-16 Fighter Jet climbing 15,000 feet in 20 seconds to a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner that can take off at an almost 90 degree angle, you’ve probably had your fill of takeoffs, for now.
Remember the video of that insane Boeing 777 landing in the middle of a 75MPH windstorm? Well today, on this lazy Friday, we thought we’d flip the script and show you some of the more unique airport runways around the world that typically make for harrowing landings. From the ridiculously dangerous and short runway at the Courchevel Altiport in the French Alps to the famous Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten, you might want to stay grounded for a while after watching these.
The deal is designed to help BlackBerry sharpen its focus on business-related services as its share of the mobile phone market remains stagnant.
Automakers are investing in tech to stay relevant in a world where car ownership is becoming optional.

Microsoft may have the IFA 2015 keynote to itself, but that hasn’t stopped it from straying from Windows 10 and teasing a brand new Dell 2-in-1. The Latitude 11 5000 was given a sneak-preview by Nick Parker, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s OEM division, as part of a showcase of new PCs using the company’s latest software. Unsurprisingly, Parker was … —> Read More
A direct-feed recording of Rainbow Mika, the latest addition to Street Fighter V‘s character roster, shows that the powerful pro wrestler can deplete an opponent’s entire health bar with just two devastating moves.
In fact, it’s possible that R. Mika will be able to win entire rounds with just a single special move. The video below, captured by Khaos Gaming, shows how.
In a nod to American pro wrestling, the footage shows R. Mika deliver an eighteen-second promo on the mic. This is activated holding down the medium punch and kick buttons, and throughout the speech, Mika goes through five separate stages of buff (each one marked by a circular ripple effect).
If the entire promo is delivered without interruption, Mika will have summoned enough strength to knock out characters with little more than a punch and throw. (Because the punch came before the throw, it’s difficult to determine whether the latter would have sufficed on its own.)
Mika’s knock-out throw is actually a special move called the Rainbow Typhoon, which is a nod to an old pro-wrestling manoeuvre called a giant swing. It can be activated by inputting a half-circle-back and punch, as shown on this Mika command list, while the damage of the move gradually increases based on how much charge has preceded it.
In practice, it is unlikely that players will be able to unlock the full potential of this move, because it would necessitate the opponent not attacking for about 18 seconds.
However, in a recent PlayStation Blog post, it is revealed that Mika isn’t entirely defenceless during her promo.
Peter Rosas, a community manager at publisher Capcom, explains: “The longer the buttons are —> Read More
If you’ve been thinking about picking up DriveClub you won’t find a better deal than this.
PlayStation Plus members can now pick up the full digital version of DriveClub along with the game’s Season Pass for just £15.99 – £4 cheaper than the standalone cost of the Season Pass.
Alternatively, if you don’t fancy the DLC, DriveClub’s PS Plus Edition Upgrade has also been reduced to £11.99, down from its usual £19.99 price. Both are great value, but for the sake of an extra £4 I’d definitely recommend grabbing the Season Pass bundle. —> Read More

On Thursday, I ran a simple post that covered 10 of the best iPhone widgets in the App Store. Widget support isn’t new on Apple’s iOS platform, but it’s buried in the Notification Center and so many people have forgotten widgets are even there. While Apple’s implementation of widgets isn’t quite as functional as Google’s widget support in Android, widgets can still add tremendous value to the iOS experience, and yesterday’s post gave you 10 great examples of apps that do just that.
Following that post, I received a number of emails from readers who were excited to find some nifty new iPhone and iPad widgets, but also who wanted to recommend a few additional apps that people might not have heard of. In this post, I’ll share five of the more obscure recommendations I found in those emails — and be sure to keep sending in your recommendations via email or to @zacharye on Twitter.
