The summer is here and so is the time for holidays and vacations. Many of us will soon get a chance to rest; do the things we like to do, see the new places. And while most people don't go holidaying to spend their days in a room, anything can happen. There might be a bad weather, you can get tired or your kids need to go to sleep early.

Google Glass is an extraordinary device. Like the Apple II, the Palm Pilot, and the first iPhone, Glass is a category-defining product that will quickly become the template for all other devices of its type going forward. It's the kind of device that will have a place in a computer history museum. As a technology journalist, I often cover innovative devices, or exciting devices, or devices... more.

Early in Man of Steel, we watch as a school bus carrying a teenage Clark Kent and his classmates veers out of control and plunges off a bridge into a river. As the bus sinks below the surface, its trapped and terrified occupants frantically seize what appear to be their last gasps of air. Lucky for them young Clark is aboard! He lifts the bus back up from the depths and saves the day. But ... more.

Featured App Tiny Token Empires Today's roundup is presented by Tiny Token Empires from HeroCraft. This game has an interesting mix of genres: the city and empire building is reminiscent of a Civilization-style game set in 2000 B.C. But the way that your empire expands is kind of like Risk... until you get into the actual battles, which play out as a swapping puzzle game. It's an intrig... more.

Apple has announced iTunes Radio at WWDC in San Francisco. The new service, which releases this autumn, is a station-based radio player. It is similar to Pandora Radio, where users can pick songs or albums they want to hear, although iTunes Radio selects songs via algorithms and curates a number of featured stations.

QWERTY isn't getting as much love these days. New keyboard layouts are proposed all the time that claim to be better than the old standard. American inventor Christopher Latham Sholes came up with QWERTY in the late 1800s for typewriters, though, so maybe the search for a suitable update isn't completely unfounded. KALQ is one typing system that's trying to make things easier for touchscree... more.
Hands-on with the Xbox One
Posted by 2 CommentsXtreamerAdmin on under Featured
It's not every day a new console debuts and you get a chance to play with it months ahead of launch. Luckily, I was able to snag the opportunity to play a few Xbox One titles last night, ogle at the new vent-crazy console, and manhandle the new controller. First, let's talk about the console itself.
