The Samsung Edge: Feature of the Future or Unnecessary Gimmick?

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Samsung’s latest Galaxy phones. While the Galaxy S6 has been widely praised by industry reviewers, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is more of a lightning rod. In most practical ways, these phones are the same. The Edge simply includes an extra tiny screen by using a curved glass front that extends down one side of the phone. The aesthetic is striking, but since there isn’t room to display much, many consider it to be mostly a novelty.

Still, the Edge was popular enough among early [...]

2 Billion Under 20: Think Different Because Millennials Sure Do

The funny thing about success is that most people only see the end result, you know, the actual success. What they don’t see is all the twists and turns it took to get to that point. I just turned 26 years old and during my time on this planet I’ve noticed something else about success, the people who find it the most don’t play by the rules. Our parents and their parents grew up in a time where pretty much everyone followed a “set out” path of how things were supposed to be, but now, a new generation of [...]

As YouTube and Twitch Compete, Gamers Are Likely to Benefit

The emergence of Twitch TV is arguably the seminal innovation of 2015, primarily because it elevates live streaming onto an entirely new level. From having the capacity to watch uploaded videos online and on demand, users can now enjoy real-time entertainment at their leisure.

Recently, it was also announced that popular social media outlet YouTube had made a commitment to compete with Twitch, by launching its very own, dedicated gaming service. Powered by Google, YouTube Gaming will aim to host the biggest [...]

Startup Founders: The Next Time You Run Into A Problem Remember This Post

Last night I was upset. I mean, it wasn’t anything really serious (looking back in hindsight), I guess you could say it was typical startup founder worries, but still, as I’m sure everyone knows when you are upset about something it always feels like it’s the biggest problem in the world and may even seem insurmountable at that point in time. And as I sat there on my bed thinking about some of the stuff going on at KYA currently, my girlfriend walks into the bedroom and blows my mind with one sentence: “Do you [...]

Well that was fast. According to partial data for July 2015 on Google Trends, voat, a community-based site that has seen a rise in popularity due to the clashing over at reddit, has already caught up to reddit with regard to search interest. As I type this post, voat has a score of 71 and reddit has a score of 73. The rise in popularity of voat happened extremely quickly — it’s pretty much a straight line up from May to July.

It Only Took 7 Years But Malwarebytes for Mac Is Finally Here

I have always been a huge fan and advocate for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Disclosure: I’m good personal/professional friends with the founder/CEO of the company). But despite my friendship, the product is amazing — it’s helped millions of people and businesses all over the world remove more than 5 billion infections to date. That’s insane.

Anyway, in August 2008 I made the switch, you know, from PC to Mac. Now at the time Mac malware wasn’t nearly as prevalent as it is today. As Apple products have [...]

These innovations touch upon both the hardware used to simulate a realistic virtual world as well as the software running atop this machinery.

Attendees at this year’s E3 were eager to try out the Oculus Rift, which is expected to be released early next year. [...]

Game Developers Should Be Looking Towards Emerging Markets for the Next Massive Hit

The mobile market is on fire thanks in part to an influx of new users firing up phones and tablets. While some of those first timers are the very old and the very young, a huge number are people in emerging markets just now gaining access to both tech and the ability to connect. It can be argued that gaming is driving mobile growth across the globe. The number of mobile gamers worldwide is expected to increase to 1.82 billion in 2017 according to Newzoo, and mobile has gobbled up a quarter of the total gaming market, which is [...]
