there is rumored to be 2 iPhone 6. One being 4.7 inches and the other being 5.5 inches. Both where most likely coming in September because that is usually when a new iPhone is announced. Credible sources say that maybe only the 4.7 inch phone will be announced. They say the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 is not ready due to problems with the in-cell touch panel and the sapphire display not being sturdy enough. Now this is all rumors but very possibly true. For more iPhone 6 rumors scroll down. We will keep you update on all the iPhone 6 news and rumors as they come in.

 

Right now if you buy an Xbox one from dell’s website you will get a full year of Xbox Live gold and a 100$ dell gift card. Yes it is a physical card that will be shipped to you in 10-20 days after the purchase of the console and the card is valid for 90 days. I think this will drive Xbox one sales through the roof. I mean seriously you can get lots of cool stuff with the dell card and now you don’t have to worry about buying Xbox Live gold for a year. The price is amazing to. You can get the kinect-less Xbox One for 440$ that’s 20% off the original price for the Xbox One kinect less console so go get this while you can,

Most company’s are trying to replace the personal laptop with a tablet. For instance Microsoft’s Surface is as they said replacing personal computers. Apple is not really into that the iPad to them is just a great tablet along with the iPad mini, Apple has their own laptops to sell and the mac book line is great. I believe you can not replace a laptop with a tablet, tablets are great for personal use games videos and fun. If you are working you want a laptop to store files on easy fast portable and much better for work. This is just my opinion on this topic you may think that tablets are better and if that is what you like by all means go ahead and get a tablet. Desktops don’t have this problem they do have to compete with laptops. I will make a separate post on my opinion on that which is going to be interesting because this is a good competition. My view on the Chromebook is that it is indeed a computer but i do not prefer it for work use I do think it is a great easy personal computer for videos, online games, reading and just the internet but not to have files and big games on just for the internet browser Google Chrome. For gaming I prefer Alien ware specificly or any computer with a good GPU or graphics card. Other great laptop brand’s are Mac book’s,Lenovo,Acer,Dell,HP as long as they have a god processor,graphics card or GPU,and a hard drive with at least 500 GB.

Microsoft has announced the new 12 inch surface pro. Many thought the Surface Pro 3 would be a small Surface but that was all rumors. “Microsoft is calling it the tablet that can replace your laptop”. The Surface Pro 3 is said to be the thinnest Intel core product ever made. You can pre order one on May,21st 2014 in the U.S. It will be available to the world in late August. The product will start at a price of $799. There will be three different models of the tablet 1 with an Intel core i3 another with an Intel core i5 and one more with an Intel core i7  processor. The i3 processor will be available in June the other to will be available in August. Accessories, include a Surface Pro 3 pen it is not a stylus it is a pen you use to write or drawl with and then you click the pen when you are done to save your work into a cloud. Now that is the factual information on the Surface Pro 3

My true opinion on the Surface Pro 3

First of all I think that no tablet can replace a laptop people at work don’t want a tablet to get confused on they want a easy laptop to store their files on and use. I believe Microsoft is capable of doing allot better. The Surface in my opinion is way over priced I can get an iPad for $799\. Apple know’s more about tablets than Microsoft. The other Surface tablets have all had problems after they were released. The Surface Pro 3 is most likely going to run into some issues. If your trying to decide between iPad and Surface go iPad. I do believe that if Microsoft could perfect this product and make it much better and make the price at say $500 instead of $799 people like me might be interested. The only thing’s I do like is the pen i like the click idea and the consumer’s would think that was an easy click and everything is saved they can out the tablet down and go eat, I also like  Microsoft decision in processor’s. We will get in depth with this on The upcoming episode of This week in geek. If you have any questions feel free to comment and we will give you an answer.

Far cry 4 has been announced for 2014. Far Cry is a franchise with 4 entries. Now many people don’t even play the game or intend to but it is not bad Far Cry 1,2 and 3 were successful. I think Far Cry 4 could be a good selling game for Xbox one especially because PS4 is clearly winning the console War. We recently had a poll on which you think is better but according to stats the PS4 has sold more. Far Cry will be released on Xbox one,Xbox 360,PS3,PS4 and PC. If you pre order you will receive a limited edition of the game that has Hurk’s redemption a single player mission pack and you will receive Hurk’s main weapon  The Impaler. Now eventually the limited edition will be for sale on either DLC or a separate disc to get more profit. Now lets get into the game “In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.”  More info will be said at E3 coming on June 9th. This is all we know right now but we will be giving full results for every big event that happens at E3 (electronic entertainment expo). undefined
