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…

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…

No matter what happens. No matter how prepared you are. No matter how awesome the battery life is on your phone. You will experience a low to no battery emergency with your smartphone at some point.

And while we’re more or less “done” with minor advancements and small innovations here and there, holding…

The LG G4 is LG’s latest and greatest. Besides the Snapdragon 808 CPU being technically “second” place, everything else about it is gunning for the top. But despite this, LG may not be letting it hold the crown for long. Word on the street according to an LG official (by way of Focus Taiwan is that sometime in the second half of 2015, LG will release a new, top top device that will be larger, more powerful and most importantly, (likely) go toe-to-toe with Samsung’s next-gen Note. LG has toyed with the Note’s territory before, most recently with the G…

One of our most used items on our desk happened to be an old Lightning dock back from a few years ago when Apple still sold one. Since then, 3rd parties have stepped in to fill the void Apple had confusingly left. As of today, though, Apple is back in the game with a new Lightning Dock. If you remember the old one, you’ll notice the new one isn’t all that different. The only real change is the scallop for the phone to sit in has been removed, with the Lightning connector now being raised above the flat platform of…

Roughly a month ago Apple unveiled their new, tiny 12-inch Macbook as well as refreshed their 13-inch MacBook Pros. Lovers of larger screens, however, were left with nothing new to lust after. Fast forward to today and it seems Apple is finally moving through more of their lineup with updates, specifically, for the 15-inch Retina Macbook Pro and iMac. For the hardware (and Mac) guys out there, you’ll recall over the course of Apple’s history that they tend to not favor one GPU platform over another. Whatever happens to be the better (whether power or efficiency – it varies) ends…

There’s always something to talk about regarding the most recent iPhone (or rumors of the next-gen one). On the Android side, there’s a steady flow of new hardware to keep us busy, too. Companies like Apple, HTC, Sony, LG and Samsung routinely steal the limelight, leaving everyone else to pick up any the scraps of attention left over. But ASUS will certainly give it there all. Several weeks back the company unveiled their new Zenfone 2, a second-gen Android device that for all intents and purposes looks nice on the outside and has pretty decent specs internally speaking. But for…
