It's here ... the next generation Xbox from Microsoft (formerly codenamed Durango). Officially unveiled today, it will be called the Xbox One. The Xbox itself, looks rather a like a HTPC system with a black case and a big Xbox logo.
8-core processor based on AMD's Jaguar design
AMD powered graphics
8GB of RAM
USB 3.0 ports
500GB of hard drive storage
Watch the video and see what you think of it ... Personally, I think the specs are great, but the design and looks are a little "boxy" ... I guess Microsoft really wants the new Xbox one to be a "home entertainment" system for the living room.
The Internet is not a safe place anymore. With so many dangers just a click away, Internet users are becoming more and more accustomed with a popular service many use for better Internet security and privacy: SunVPN VPN service.
A VPN service will create an encrypted tunnel between your computer and a VPN server. It will route all your Internet traffic via the server and change your actual (public) IP address, so the sites you visit will see the VPN server IP address instead of your own. Here are some of the biggest advantages of using SunVPN:
You will stay anonymous online (because your real IP is hidden)
You will be safe from hackers in WiFi hotspots by encrypting all your wireless traffic
You can access blocked websites from anywhere in the world; this is extremely useful in countries with high Internet censorship like China or Oman
You can access geo-restricted content like HULU or Netflix from anywhere
Your browsing history will be hidden from your ISP
Leaked images show Lenovo's stunning ThinkPad S3 and S5 ultrabooks with Aluminim casing ...
"Earlier today we received a couple of photos that show off two upcoming Lenovo Ultrabooks: the 13-inch ThinkPad S3 (codename "Labatt") and the 15-inch ThinkPad S5 ("Guinness"). As you can see above and after the break, both aluminum laptops feature a new "floating design" that might have taken a page out of Samsung and Vizio's book: shaving off the front outer edges of the bottom side to create that slim and floating illusion.
Also, these will apparently come with either a black or silver lid. Some folks on Sina Weibo have received other teaser photos of the ThinkPad S5, with one confirming the presence of JBL stereo speakers. The funny thing is Chinese website Yesky reported on a charity auction that actually sold limited editions of the S3 and S5 earlier this month, but those unannounced Ultrabooks went under everyone else's radar."

Mmmm ... PS4 or the new Xbox? Now that's the REAL question. If one of the new consoles offer advanced hands-free motion gesture ... than that's the one for me!
"Sony tries to steal a little of thunder from Microsoft, and we do mean a little bit. If any of you are fans of Mad Men, you are keenly aware that following the conclusion of every new Sunday show, a preview is shown for the following week's episode. There are usually a dozen or so brief video clips of people making "concerned" or "shocked" faces, while uttering a few words that tell you absolutely nothing about the episode.
Well, Sony is taking a page from Mad Men's playbook with a new teaser video for the PlayStation 4. The console was first announced way back in late February, but all we were shown at the time was a picture of the controller. We don't get much more today other than a few random shots of the console from varying angles."

Crazy huh? ... 80% of the world's internet users don't even know what the hell Tumblr is! And it's worth $1.1 Billion
"Yahoo's board has approved a deal to buy New York-based blogging service Tumblr for $1.1bn (£725m), US media reports say. The acquisition is expected to be announced as early as Monday.
The deal was a "foregone conclusion" and was unanimously voted for by the board, tech blog AllThingsD reported, citing sources close to the matter. If confirmed, it will be CEO Marissa Mayer's largest deal since taking the helm of Yahoo in July 2012. Neither Yahoo nor Tumblr responded immediately to requests for comment.
Under the terms of the acquisition, Tumblr would continue to operate as an independent business, the Wall Street Journal said, citing unnamed sources familiar with the situation.
The company is currently run by David Karp, a 26-year-old New Yorker who founded Tumblr in 2007, and he is expected to remain in his role.
Analysts say that by acquiring Tumblr, Yahoo will gain a larger social media presence and enhance its ability to attract younger audiences in its battle with internet rivals Google and Facebook."
It's here world's first Sailfish OS based smartphone. It's Android app compliant, comes with dual core processor, 16Gb of ram, 8MP camera as well as a 4.5-inch display.
"Jolla's heavily teased launch day in Finland has already spilled some major news: pricing and specs for the first Sailfish OS handset. The phone seems to be called "The Other Half" -- or at least that's the working title for now -- and judging from Jolla's Facebook page it consists of a colorful plastic case, available in various shades including orange or green, which hooks onto the main chassis containing a 4.5-inch display (of unknown resolution), dual-core processor, microSD expansion with 16GB onboard, a "4G" modem, user replaceable battery and an 8MP rear camera. The chassis recognizes which case is attached and adapts the visual theme of the OS to match, creating "your other half, exactly as you want it to be.""
