• Google partners with uBreakiFix for same-day Pixel repairs

    One of the biggest disadvantages with buying a Nexus device, especially directly from Google, is the lack of reliable service centers to nurse the smartphone’s wounds.

  • Let’s get real on iPhone 8 rumors

    Even before the iPhone 7 came out, people were speculating on what’s next for Apple’s 2017 iPhone. Some even believe Apple will skip it’s tried-and-true tick-tock release cycle and skip ahead to the iPhone 10 to coincide with the iPhone’s 10th anniversary (2007-2017; time flies). And there’s speculation the iPhone as we know it will turn into something completely different … Continue reading

    CommentaarHet moge duidelijk zijn dat de Wii U niet heeft gebracht voor Nintendo wat de Japanners er van hadden gehoopt. Na het immense succes van de Wii, was de Wii U niet onderscheidend genoeg ten opzichte van zijn voorganger. Daarnaast kende de Wii U diverse kleine en grote problemen.
    Het tweede scherm dat via de meegeleverde tablet bediend werd, bracht weinig meerwaarde. Er waren te weinig games die het goed ondersteunden....
