Since I was a kid, some of the best PC gaming accessories have come from Logitech. It seems like they’ve always taken PC gaming seriously. I’ve been spending some time trying out the different accessories in Logitech’s G-Series lineup of PC hardware build specifically with gamers in mind. It is certainly a broad product range, with options for those on a budget, those looking for a premium experience, and everyone in between. Across the board no matter which G-Series accessory I look at it was interesting to see a very consistent focus on an edgy ‘gamer’ style, and core features gearing this stuff ideally for gaming in mind.

Samsung introduced the new Galaxy S5 smartphone at its Unpacked event in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress (MWC), promising a handset that will be its most “mesmerizing” and connected yet. With a similar, though more refined design, the S5 appears to take some of its design and functional cues from the previous two devices, but Samsung seems to also want to make sure consumers understand that the focus is a little bigger with this one.

Calling Titanfall the most important game on the release schedule for Xbox One is not hyperbole -- this is a game that has been turning heads across the industry since its major unveiling at Microsoft's E3 press conference last year in Los Angeles. Titanfall has everything going for it: top game critics are absolutely raving about it, over 2 million fans recently flocked to its public beta, the development team consists of many of the key people behind the Call of Duty series, and it has the full backing of game publishing powerhouse Electronic Arts. Microsoft too is behind this game is a big way, not only securing exclusivity for the lifetime of the title on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, but also as we've seen, commerating the game's launch with a sleek Limited Edition Xbox One Titanfall Controller.
That's not all though, as Microsoft just this week announced that coming March 11, the same date as Titanfall's North American launch, they will be releasing an exclusive Xbox One Titanfall Console bundle. If you've been waiting for Titanfall to jump into the Xbox One experience, this bundle is definitely the way to go. Curious to know what's inside? Let's have a look!

It used to be that streaming content from your computer to your TV was a complicated process, or one that involved spending lots of money on a boxy set- top connector. No more, because the streaming-content specialists at Roku have just come out with a device that gives you access to your favourite content, in a plug-and-go device no bigger than a USB stick. And the price point can't be beat right now in Canada.

Let's face it: when Diablo III released on PC nearly two years ago, it was a game with great ambition, yet mired by horrendous technical issues and one really awful design choice. While the server problems were remedied within a few week after launch, the fact remained that Diablo III's loot system and Auction House both served to undermine the main reason for playing a Diablo game in the first place -- the incredible satisfaction that comes with slaying foul demons and being rewarded with ridiculously awesome loot.
In the years since, Blizzard Entertainment have taken fan complaints seriously and promised to remedy them with a game patch called version 2.0.1. Well, that patch has now been released and the changes are nothing short of monumental. So much has been overhauled, the 2.0.1 patch notes alone span a whopping 98 pages (seriously, I counted how many "Page Dn" key tabs it took to reach the bottom!)
Everything from the loot system, to character classes, to the game's difficulty, and much more, have been completely revamped with the single focus of improving the overall gameplay experience. If you're a Diablo fan, you simply have to come see what's new!

Many ebikes are built for the daily commute, but there’s a massive audience out there who have were clamouring for a bike built for them: adventure riders! For anyone who wants to tackle serious terrain, there’s a new bike in town… and here’s the scoop: it’ll handle your daily commute just fine too! It's the Element from Surface 604, and we’re going to take a look at it today.
Usually, the term “a need for speed” doesn’t tend to rhyme when it comes to reading, a pastime that is more about slowing down enough to retain all the information on each page. There appears to be an app for that, too, and it’s called Spritz. Well, to be fair, Spritz is actually more than just an app, it’s a technology that its developers believe could change the speed, recognition and retention that people read with, managing to get you through up to 1,000 words per minute. Samsung devices will be the first to showcase it on mobile devices, with the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Gear 2 coming first.
With the exception of wearable technology, the buzz in the tech world has been the introduction of 4K – or UltraHD – TV to mainstream use. In case you’ve been TV-illiterate for the last few years, let’s give you a high-level overview of what 4K actually means: the average HD-ready TV pumps out about 1920x1080 pixels, giving us what we know as high-definition TV. To our eyes, we see super-clear programming that – paired with the right television – makes those high-paid actors on the screen seem almost life-like. Great right? To most of us, this is sufficient for the amount of TV we are watching. But there is that other percent of watchers who want the best of the best; for them, there is now 4K TV. Remember that pixel count we just spoke of in HD TV? Consider it yesterday’s news. 4K TV’s have a pixel resolution of 4096x2160.
Jaw dropping, I know.
If you're sitting on a milk crate, reading this on a laptop perched on some wobbly 2 x 4's and some sawhorses scavenged from an alley, I hate to break it to you, but it's time to upgrade. With all the technology we use, the ability to telecommute, and so many of us having jobs that require us putting in a few hours working at home, having a home office has probably never been so important. Check out some attractive, easy and cost-effective ideas for your home office upgrade.
Titanfall may be the most significant game coming out this year and we are giving one person the chance to win some awesome Titanfall swag!
