Xbox Maverick, the disc-less Xbox One S, could launch ahead of E3

By | March 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

A few months ago rumors circulated about an all-digital Xbox One S console. It was reported at the time that the system didn’t have a disc tray, and would instead rely on digital downloads and Xbox Game Pass to install new games. 

Not only is that system actually in development but, according to new sources, it could be coming out as soon as May.

These sources spoke confidentially to Windows Central, who reports that the new system – informally called Xbox Maverick and formally to be rebranded as the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition – will be available globally in all regions in May 2019.… Read the full article

UK could soon hit data storage breaking point

By | March 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

New research from Veritas Technologies has revealed that UK consumers face a tough choice between deleting their data or paying extra to keep it.

The firm conducted a study to learn more about consumers' data habits and found that 38 percent of the 2,000 respondents would not pay for extra data storage on top of what is available on their personal devices. This leaves them with the choice to save more of their data or sacrifice the performance of their devices.… Read the full article

Putin wants his own private internet

By | March 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

A new Russian law could soon isolate the country's Runet from the rest of the internet as it seeks to tighten its grip on the information that flows in and out of the country.

A new bill, backed by President Vladimir Putin and Moscow lawmakers, is currently being pushed through parliament which would create a single command post from which local authorities can manage and even halt information flowing across the internet in Russia.

The country's so called “Sovereign Internet” bill is being portrayed by Putin as a defensive response to the Trump Administration's new cyber strategy that would allow the US to launch offensive measures against Russia and any other nation states known for committing nefarious activities online.… Read the full article

By | March 5th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Everyone’s getting excited about 5G, the next-gen network tech that will let you casually download data on your smartphone at lightning-fast speeds, including T-Mobile.

The other carriers will operate on higher-frequency "millimeter wave" bands, which will supposedly provide faster speeds but have less range. 

The signature phone coming to many of these carriers?… Read the full article

Monitor Audio Studio Loudspeaker

It’s easy to love beautiful things. I believe we all know this, whether it’s comfortable to admit or not. It’s why our culture obsesses over youth and attractiveness. It’s why I spend too much time thinking about design. But sometimes, a beautiful product can be written off as shallow, all flash and no substance. There’s always a temptation to look at a beautiful pair of speakers and think to yourself, there’s no way those sound as good as they look. It’s a bad thought, but probably a thought we’ve all had.… Read the full article
