Microsoft HoloLens Review – Bridging The Gap Between AR And VR



Toptal have posted a blog on Microsoft HoloLens Review – Bridging The Gap Between AR And VR Preview: Microsoft has a long tradition of spicing up relatively dull product announcements with compelling tech demos, and the Windows 10 announcement was no exception. The software giant used the opportunity to create a fair amount of buzz about the HoloLens, a futuristic headset that offers a glimpse into the future of Augmented Reality (AR).

iPhone 7 Leaked Release



The iPhone 7  will be released for sale on September 25th, 2015. Apple will announce the iPhone 7 during their press release on September 9th (next Wednesday)! The biggest question is how do we know this information? A leaked Vodafone memo confirmed the release date of September 25th, with pre-sales beginning September 18th. With the iPhone 6 being Apple’s highest seller, the probability of them bringing out the same phone, with a few different features, is highly unlikely. Although the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, are the highest rumored, we believe the iPhone 7 will be released on the 9th. Which…

Android to remove the Bloatware!



Google are set to remove more apps from the pre-installed list, when buying your new Android devices. The apps, also known as bloatware, are becoming quite the annoyance, and will become uninstalled on devices in the future! AndroidCentral released a post, explaining the changes and discussing the facts that any phone manufacturers who wish to release Android devices must follow the bloatware rules also. Android seem to be working on any stigma’s surrounding their handsets, and I favourite that idea, as an Android user myself. I bought the LG G4 earlier this month, and pages of apps came pre-installed onto…

Windows 10 has arrived!



The newest, best and most innovative Operating System, or at-least Windows OS, has been released! Windows 10 was released on July 29, 2015 within the early hours of the morning. I posted the below video on my personal YouTube channel, which provides a quick overview on the new features, answers any questions that may be on your mind prior to making the big switch and also delivers my opinion on why you should move. Windows 10 is the first operating system, that I didn’t feel awful after upgrading. When first navigating through Windows 8, the disappointment in the new Start Menu, the…
