Acer V Nitro Black Edition Series gaming laptops arrive for the holidays

Acer has introduced two new gaming laptops in the US and Canada, both in the V Nitro Black Edition Series. With these machines come sleek yet serious designs, as well as specs that will meet the needs of mostly any gamer. The smaller of the two, the V 15, will arrive next month, while the larger V 17 won’t be hitting shelves until November.

index

The Acer Aspire V 15 and V 17 Nitro Black Editions will be launching in time for the holiday season, with the former bringing a 15.6-inch display and the latter a 17.3-inch display. Both have a Full HD 1080p resolution, Intel’s Core i7-4710HQ quad-core processor, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphics.

The smaller of the two features 8GB of RAM, while the V 17 has double that at 16GB. Likewise, the larger will feature a 1TB HDD and a 256GB SSD, while the smaller will have 1TB HDD with a 128 SSD option. Only the V 17 model will feature a Blu-ray optical drive, but both will have a backlit full-size keyboard.

Continuing with the shared specs, both the V 15 and V 17 will feature HDMI, Ethernet, a combo audio jack, Kensington lock, 3-cell battery, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, an SD card slot, 720p webcam, and Windows 8.1. Given their size differences, the V 15 will weigh 5.29lbs, while the V 17 will be heavier at 6.61lbs.

The V 15 model will start at $1,099 USD, being $100 USD more expensive if you get the 128 SSD drive. The V 17 will be priced at $1,499 USD.

Google shutters Orkut, but don’t worry about Plus (yet)

Google original attempt at social, Orkut, has been shuttered. Officially dead to us, those who visit the Orkut page will be redirected to a support page. Though it may not have had an impact stateside, Orkut’s closure is felt elsewhere.


Orkut was popular in Brazil and India, where the tone of this shutdown is much different. In those areas, media are penning heavy-hearted soliloquies to Orkut, which was typically more popular than any other social medium, Facebook included.

If you’ve got pictures in your Orkut account you’d like to keep, the support page can help. Similarly, you can view public discussions in the community archive. If for some reason you want to delete your content, that’s also easy to do from the support page.

Some are calling Orkut’s shutdown a harbinger for Google+, Google’s latest effort at social. While they were once similarly focussed, and widely overlapping, Plus has quickly morphed into a search information repository. That’s been highlighted recently by a “focus on the user” campaign in Europe, which does a good job illustrating just how Google integrates Plus info into Search.

Google+ hasn’t really caught on a social platform, and neither did Orkut — at least on a broad scale. Google+ was able to switch gears a bit and angle for more data, while Orkut is now shut. It’s not clear if Google will shutter Plus any time soon (though they’re breaking it from other services, which isn’t a good sign), but at least they realize they’re not great at social.

Basis Peak wearable tracks activities and sleep 24/7

Intel company Basis has introduced a new wearable called Peak — a smartwatch type of wristband that is set to arrive in November for a comfortable $199 USD. With the band will come both fitness and sleep tracking, constantly monitoring your data both day and night.

The new Peak band features a touchscreen display and sensor for monitoring things like the user’s heart rate, health habits, and sleep quality, all of it working alongside Basis’ BodyIQ tech. The monitoring is constant, something facilitated in part by a four-day battery life, says Basis.

Because the wearable is targeted at fitness enthusiasts, it isn’t surprising the device is waterproof to 5ATM, which will allow users to go worry-free in the rain or pool. All of this rounds out to an overall improvement on Basis’ past similar devices.

As expected, the tracker works alongside one’s smartphone, being compatible with both Android and iOS, and it brings with it features you’d commonly find on a smartwatch — notifications about new messages and calls. When it does launch, consumers will be able to grab it from Best Buy, REI, and Amazon.

Nine things to know about Windows 10

Microsoft threw us all a bit of a curveball today, announcing Windows 10 rather than the assumed Windows 9 moniker. There doesn’t seem to be a reason for this naming scheme, either. Since we’re playing toss with Redmond, here are nine things you need to know about Windows… 10.

index


Mobile is supported, too: Yes, Windows 10 will come to your mobile device. Though what we saw today was heavily skewed towards enterprise and the tried-and-true keyboard-and-mouse setup, Windows 10 is also going to be your mobile OS. It will have a different look and feel (more on that in a minute), but it’s still Windows 10.

Coming late 2015: Windows 10 will officially launch in late 2015, though a specific timeframe isn’t noted. A preview is available from tomorrow on, but that’s very early stuff, and very much nt for the average consumer.

Consumers will get it, too: Though Windows 10 has been given a strong enterprise angle, it’s not only for your workplace. Windows 10 is coming for everyone, don’t worry.

It’s Windows 7-plus, or something like that: Microsoft was keen to point out that Windows 10 was like Windows 7. A lot. Though it will have some windows 8 touches, like apps that can be pinned to the start menu, it’s being billed as though Microsoft would like to simply forget about Windows 8. We kind of would, too.

Start menu is coming back: Yeah, this is why we’d like to forget about Windows 8. Though it was good for mobile, Windows 8 on the desktop was a mess without a search menu. It wasn’t intuitive, and likely caused many people to move away from Windows 8. With Windows 10, the start menu comes back, bringing us a sense of familiarity.

Stronger start menu: Not only is the start menu coming back, it’s getting awesome. You can search the web or your desktop right from the start menu this time around, which is a nifty time saver. You’ll also be able to pin apps to the start menu, which is great for those go-to apps you use all the time. Start isn’t just coming back, it’s going to be your Windows hub.

Power users will love it: Windows has always been decent for power users, but Windows 10 is great for them. Things like being able to snag an app from another desktop are great, which is something Microsoft calls “snap assist”. You can even switch desktops altogether if you like, and have each desktop running multiple apps. A new task view lets you see al the things you’re working on. Though both are very Apple-y, they’re great for power users, and Windows 10.

Touch is different: We saw a lot to do with desktop, but when you migrate into a touch interface, Windows 10 gets a lot more like Windows 8. The interface changes a bit with touch, which takes effect when you switch your input methods. While it’s early days for Windows 10, and it’s not totally clear just how this will work, we’ve got a scenario in mind.

Think of a laptop like the Yoga 2 Pro. You have it in desktop mode, and Windows 10 is one way – start menus and such. Flip it into stand or tablet mode, and you get a different, more touch-friendly interface. That could be why Microsoft is essentially building multiple UIs into one OS this time around — those experiences are different.

It’s Windows 10 because…: There was no reason given for the naming on this one. They skipped Windows 9, and the only explanation for calling Windows 10 Windows 10 was that once we see it in action, we’ll agree that it’s the right name. What?

So, there you have it, everyone. Nine takeaways from today’s announcement. We’ve still got a long way to go with Windows 10, but it’s already looking like a decent iteration for Microsoft to make, and likely necessary, considering the slipping PC business.

Threshold Entertainment is making a “Tetris” movie

We’ve movies based on arcade games and movies based on plastic bricks, so it only makes sense that we’ll soon have a movie based on the beloved waster of time known as Tetris. Such is according to The Wall Street Journal, which is reporting that Threshold Entertainment will be making a live-action film based around it.

In case you’re wondering if there’s something you’ve missed, yes, we’re talking about that Tetris. And no, this isn’t the stuff of rumors — Threshold’s CEO Larry Kasanoff has spoken about the plans, saying the movie is “a very big, epic sci-fi” film.

Tetris-Ultimate

If the first idea that came to your mind was Tetris bricks running around, Kasanoff reassures that “We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.” Accordingly, a story is said to be in place for a yet-undetermined director to bring into reality. No cast have been pegged for the film yet.

And that’s where we’re left. No other details have been provided — when the movie will be released, what kind of budget it has, or any other details to quell our curiosity. All we know is that a Tetris movie is going to happen, and that’s good enough for now.

A big Nexus 6 might be a big mistake for Google

Google’s Nexus lineup of devices is an interesting segment of the Android market. It both provides a low-cost alternative to consumers and lets google thumb their nose at carriers. It’s also a hit-and-miss proposition most times (for various reasons), with google making a few mistakes along the way, and the latest Nexus smartphone may be the biggest mistake yet.


If you’re buying the rumors, the latest Nexus smartphone — the Nexus 6, unofficially officially — is going to be a dynamo, just like those which came before it. The spec sheet is pretty spectacular, and we can safely assume the pricing will be equally impressive. This time around, it’s Motorola (probably; again, nothing confirmed just yet) building the Google standard for Android.

index

And that’s the problem. The Nexus 6 will be Google’s Android flagship — and if those rumors end up being accurate, it’s going to have a 6-inch screen. According to the reliable Android blog Android Police, that’s precisely what it will be (their rendering of the Nexus 6 is above).

Going from 4.7-inches on the Nexus 4 to 5-inches for the Nexus 5 screen wasn’t a radical departure. A few tenths of an inch isn’t something we’ll get too annoyed with, but a full inch?

Not only does that size increase deviate Nexus from smartphone standards, it takes the Nexus 6 out of most hands — almost literally. At 5-inches, the Nexus 5 is a bit large for smaller hands to adequately maneuver single-palmed. A 6-inch monster is going to be nearly impossible.

Larger phones like Samsung’s Note 3 (and soon Note 4) don’t crest the 6-inch mark. When Sony did it with the Xperia Z Ultra, we scoffed. Hard. All of us. “Who would want a phone that big?!”, we all wondered aloud.

If — and that’s still a big “IF” — Google and Motorola deliver on a 6-inch Nexus 6, it’s going to be a tough sell. Not only do they need to find a way to convince a public uninterested in a massive smartphone to buy one, but they probably need to diversify their existing and popular Nexus lineup.

Google doesn’t keep older Nexus devices around, so once the Nexus 6 hits, you can probably kiss the Nexus 5 goodbye. Google has a very popular tablet in the Nexus 7, and an incoming Nexus 9 (again, rumors — but convincing ones).

The Nexus lineup has always meshed well; you have an appropriately sized phone, a smaller tablet, and a larger tablet. They gave up on the large tablet almost immediately, but their Nexus 7 has been a massive hit. Google has complimented that by keeping Nexus phones appropriately sized, too.

Now we seem to be cruising for a larger phone and larger tablet. Is this the new Nexus from Google? Is the Nexus 7 going away, supplanted by a phone nearly as large and a tablet that has an equally larger footprint? If they do keep the smaller tablet alongside a bigger phone and slightly larger tablet, why not keep a five-inch phone around, too?

I don’t think (I’d even go so far as to guarantee) a 6-inch smartphone will speak to as many people as the Nexus 5 did. The Nexus 5 was at the precipice of the larger phone movement, accompanied by the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5, and LG G3. A Nexus 6 — with a 6-inch screen — is simply a step too far.

A Nexus phone with a 6-inch screen is a flat-out mistake. Not because it’s too hard, as in Google/Motorola can’t make a nice one. It’s a mistake because most people just won’t want a phone that large (it won’t matter if it’s slim or the bezels are thin), and Google typically doesn’t make two Nexus devices in the same year.

If Google has a second Nexus handset that’s slipped under the radar somehow, that’s a triumph. It may also be their saving grace for the Nexus lineup in 2014/2015.

Path Talk update lets you text businesses

Path updated their Talk app today, and it brings in one striking feature that might have you using their messaging app. You can now text your questions to a business, and get an answer back in a few minutes. Well, on your end it looks like you’re texting a business — it’s a bit more complex than that, though.


Under the “laces” tab in Path Talk you’ll see a list of local businesses. In there, you can text a question to that business. Something like “is the line really long right now?”, or “do you still have tickets for the 5:00 showing of (your new favorite movie)?”.

index

That text is sent to Path, who in turn call the business for you. The business never gets an actual text from you, because that would involve a ton of infrastructure, and as we’ve pointed out before — not many people use Path.

Instead, Path relies on their own agents to call those businesses you’re asking questions of. So your question goes to Path, and they’ll respond with what the business tells them. It’s great for those times you can’t get away easily, or need to query multiple sources in short order.

This is the result of Path’s TalkTo acquisition earlier this year. TalkTo offered pretty much the same thing, it’s just been re-branded as Path, and cobbled into their app.

It’s a neat idea, and in testing it out, we got great results. Answers came back to us in a matter of minutes. For those times you need to find something out on the go, or don’t want to wait on hold, Talk is great.

Report: PayPal dropped from Apple Pay because Samsung

Apple Pay is going to make waves in the mobile payment realm, that much is certain. On launch, many wondered why Apple’s service didn’t just partner with another, similar service — or buy them. A new report suggests Apple was in discussions with PayPal to be involved with Apple Pay, but cut them loose because of Samsung.


PayPal is currently believed to be working on a smartwatch payment method with Samsung, one that would make them the sole payment clearinghouse for all Samsung wearables that can adjudicate mobile payments. That relationship reportedly incensed Apple brass, and caused them to turn their back on the legacy web-based payment operation.

apple-pay-hands-on-sg-1-600x34721

The story goes like this: as Apple was making the rounds with banks and other financial institutions to get their blessing and backing for Apple Pay, they reached out to PayPal because why not. While in the midst of those talks, PayPal went on and partnered with Samsung on their joint effort — a partnership that is said to be at the behest of eBay CEO John Donahoe. Apple got upset, and broke it off with PayPal.

It’s all very possible, but is also a bit too textbook soap opera for our taste, and the Apple-Samsung beef seems a bit too easy an explanation, here. The report also doesn’t mention in which capacity Apple would have used PayPal, and as they’ve got their own method for processing payments in iTunes, they may have never actuallyneeded PayPal to begin with.

iOS 8 “Reset All Settings” reported to wipe iCloud Drive docs

iOS 8 might be taking another PR hit this week, though hopefully in a more limited fashion. Some users have started reporting that iOS 8’s option to reset their phone’s settings erased iWork files stored in the beta version of iCloud Drive, with some left without an option to recover them at all.

iCloud Drive was first shown to the public in beta version of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. To some extent, it tries to put Apple’s iCloud service on par with popular cloud storage offerings like Dropbox or Google Drive, allowing users to store almost any type of file on iCloud. Naturally, Apple’s own proprietary products and file formats, particularly documents, spreadsheets and slideshows from its iWork suite, enjoy preferential treatment. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be helpful in the case of this bug.

index

This iOS feature warns users that all settings on their iPhone or iPad will be lost but in the same breath assures them that no data or media files will be deleted. That, however, may have applied only to files stored on the device itself because proceeding with the operation will actually delete files stored on iCloud Drive. Ironically, the damage seems to be limited to iWork documents while random files remain untouched.

The matter is exacerbated even further because of limited recovery options. Despite having one of the prettiest and probably most sophisticated end user-friendly backup feature via Time Machine, some users are left without reprieve. In particular, some of those on the public Yosemite beta report not finding any backup of their iWork files stored on iCloud, though Maverick users may have more success in that regard. Even worse, depending on your point of view, is the fact that iCloud Drive doesn’t seem to have any backups itself, a fact that users found out when going through Apple’s customer service.

Considering that iCloud Drive is still in its infancy, hiccups like this could at least be expected as growing pains. That said, the more horrifying problem is that users could potentially be left without any way to recover those lost files. Considering that iCloud Drive’s availability is still relatively limited, Apple might be able to stop the issue from spreading further. Unfortunately for those already bitten by the bug, they might have to bid farewell to those lost documents, unless they have kept their own backups outside of iCloud and Time Machine.
