There’s something to say about those who “over achieve” and/or go above and beyond. Symantec is one of those companies, though not in the way you’d usually expect. A new vulnerability has been discovered that not only affects Windows clients (the norm for anti-virus software) but Mac and Linux too. Bonus: the Windows vulnerability goes all the way down to the kernel level, is easy to exploit, and in the end, can be incredibly damaging to your system. While it’s rare and also not good that three separate platforms were simultaneously affected by this, the saving grace is that Symantec…

PC gamers who lust for big (and/or multiple) graphics cards have a new way to embellish their rigs thanks to MSI. The company has announced a new SLI bridge that includes a 120mm fan and bracket for cooling purposes. So not only is it cool to look at through that side window, it’s functional as well. Supported configurations include 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way setups. For now, pricing is still an unknown.

If you’re not first, you’re last. And when speed matters and time is precious, every MB/s is dearly wanted. And at Computex 2015, Intel took the veil off their next-gen Thunderbolt 3 update. And as future proofing lovers go, we’re pretty excited to see Thunderbolt 3’s specs. Specifically, Thunderbolt 3 is based on the reversible USB 3.1 spec as well as bumping top transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps (up from Thunderbolt 2’s 20 Gbps max). And since it’s USB 3.1, it means the power rating is set at 100W meaning reliable charging for mobile devices and laptops alike. Intel…

Android users have had a long history of getting left over scraps when it comes to new apps/services. While iOS may have an overall smaller footprint — Start the vicious debating! — Android for some reason still can’t score exclusives (most of the time). But alas, that is neither here nor there today, as one big holdout, Periscope, is finally on Android. The live streaming app recently purchased by Twitter and launched on iOS a month or so back allows quick and easy live broadcasting of anything, anywhere, and at any time. iOS users will see very little difference in…

If you’re thinking about picking up an LG G4, T-Mobile and LG are making it worth your while. On the T-Mobile side, they’re hooking up new G4 buyers with a free 128 GB microSD card if ordered before June 21st. (The original freebie SD card was a measly 32 GB offering.).

All you need to send LG’s way is…

With LG, HTC, and Samsung (arguably the “Big 3” for the U.S. market in terms of Android phones) have now shown us their hand, there are a handful of lesser known manufacturers getting ready for their mid- to late-year update cycle. Perhaps the biggest of these “lesser” known companies at least for U.S. residents is Sony. While they’ve always been “there” in the smartphone realm, they’ve either gone a generation or two without a timely U.S. release or simply done a poor job at marketing their devices. But 2015 is a new year. And on the surface to some, the…

While we published a “state of the Nexus” article a couple weeks back for the month of May, things in the tech world can change in an instant. It may have seemed like May was going to come and go without much more in the way of interesting info regarding the next-gen Nexus phone. But wouldn’t you know it, people kind of care about the Nexus program. As such, people are constantly looking for juicy details regarding Google’s next latest and greatest stock Android devices. Case in point: Android Police posted yesterday afternoon about some new information pertaining to the…

If you’ve been using (or attempted to use) the Google Hangouts Mac app, you no doubt have experienced how absolutely awful it was. While we’ll forgo asking ourselves how/why Google would ever release something like that to the public, it still makes us think… how long can this madness go on? Apparently, today is the end of the road. But in a good way. As you can see above, it’s a much nicer layout. Really, it’s the version that Google should have released in the first place, or if it really wasn’t ready, hold off and release now. Alas, Mac…
