När Google 2015 slutade sälja sina smarta glasögon Google Glass var det många som trodde att glasögonen skickats till de sälla jaktmarkerna, men det var fel – för nu släpper nämligen företaget en uppdatering till glasögonen.Vilket enligt Techchrunch är den första sedan 2014.Den nya uppdateringen innehåller en uppdatering till glasögonens kompanjons-applikation MyGlass, några buggfixar och stöd för Bluetooth.Det betyder alltså att du kan koppla samman brillorna med diverse tangentbord och datormöss.Med tanke på den magra uppdateringen är det svårt att säga varför Google väljer att släppa en uppdatering till glasögonen, speciellt med tanke på att Google Glass sålde dåligt och aldrig blev mycket mer än en kuriosa bland konsumenterna – mycket på grund av det höga priset på cirka 12 000 kronor.

I can't see why anyone would want to sign up for Samsung Pay over Android Pay, and I say that as an S7 owner.For all intents and purpose the payment system is the same as Android Pay, but also worse.Mainly because it doesn't have the support as many banks.Well the gap is closing a bit, because today it's been revealed that three more banks are supporting Samsung Pay.HSBC, First Direct, and M Bank join Santander, Nationwide, and credit company MBNA.So that's nice, but Samsung is still quite far behind Google and Apple when it gets right down to it.

Nordea muistuttaa tiedotteessaan, että pankin asiakkaat voivat nostaa käteistä rahaa konttoreiden ja automaattien lisäksi jo parista tuhannesta toimipisteestä ympäri maan.Käteistä saa esimerkiksi K-kaupoista ja R-kioskeilta.Vaikka pankin konttoreista on tullut katoavaa kansanperinnettä ja käteisautomaatitkin ovat käyneet yhä harvinaisemmiksi, käteisen saannin ei pitäisi olla ongelma, Nordean liiketoimintajohtaja Jussi Mekkonen sanoo."Käteisen rahan saanti on viime vuosina itse asiassa helpottunut, kun rahaa saa nostaa pankkikortilla kaupan kassalta tai lähikioskista.Samaan aikaan pankkikonttoreiden ja käteisautomaattien merkitys on vähentymässä."Nordean asiakkaat voivat nostaa käteistä nyt 1200 K-kaupasta ja Neste K-liikenneasemalta, noin 170 Tokmannista sekä 600 R-kioskista.

Six months after Sony launched its 4K UHD console, Microsoft is back with its own.It’s only a minor upgrade on last year’s Xbox One S, but the ability to upscale older games to 4K, or give 1080p TV owners lusher looking effects, might actually make this thing worth it (WE’LL SEE!).The 30 games Nintendo packed into the NES Classic Edition don’t seem as impressive when the new Atari Flashback 8 Gold console from AtGames comes with 120 classic Atari 2600 titles, including iconic games like Pitfall!, Space Invaders, River Raid, Centipede, Kaboom!, and Millipede.Available come September, the Atari Flashback 8 Gold is essentially a crash course in the history of video games, and includes a pair of wireless joysticks, 720P HDMI output, and the ability to save, pause, or rewind any game you’re playing.Thrustmaster T-GT PS4 Racing Wheel and PedalsAs spotted by Kotaku, one of the most expensive gaming accessories revealed at E3 this year has to be Thrustmaster’s new T-GT racing wheel and pedals, designed to add even more realism to Grand Turismo Sport when it hits the PS4 this autumn.

In my family, there are a total of six iOS devices: A pair of iPhones and iPads for the wife and me, and another pair of iPads for the kiddos.That means we’re often scrambling to find AC adapters and spare outlets when it comes time to charge everything.Enter ChargeHub, billed as “the power strip for the 21st century,” a bold claim that’s more than marketing hype.After all, for most smartphone and tablet users, it doesn’t make sense to use wall outlets and traditional power strips with bulky AC adapters when a few simple USB cables get the job done.Weighing only half a pound, the charger accepts dual voltage 110-240V input, making it compact enough for international travel.ChargeHub is available in three models, distinguished by the number of ports and how much power they output.
