It looks like Tesla is having troubles in the gaming sector as it appears to be dialing things back when it comes to Steam support. For a time there, Elon (and staff) were hellbent on making sure the vehicles were able to play Steam games (including some popular AAA titles), allowing owners to have a little fun in the car while parked with some of their favorite games. However, it seems this isn’t the case any longer. We still haven’t seen any Steam support make its way to Model Y and Model 3 vehicles, assuming it ever would have thanks…

Creative is adding additional headphones to its Super X-Fi lineup as the company pushes harder into virtual surround. Super X-Fi (or SXFI) is a fantastic solution for delivering a virtual object-based sound experience similar to DTS:X or Dolby Atmos, using virtually any pair of headphones using a USB SXFI amp or headphones that have it built-in. It creates a larger soundstage within the ears and is great for absorbing your media content. This time around, it is a focus on the new Creative Zen Air SXFI & Creative Zen Hybrid SXFI. Both of which offer the technology built-in, offer plenty…

Everyone is jumping onto the AI bandwagon, looking for ways on how AI can be incorporated into various products and services. It’s a lucrative market with plenty of potential and Logitech is looking to be “the mouse” of choice when it comes to those who depend heavily on ChatGPT. The Signature AI Edition M750 Wireless mouse (itself) doesn’t actually feature any AI built into it. Instead, it offers a simple shortcut for those who make use of ChatGPT on a daily basis. With the idea that it could help speed the process up a little using default prompts recorded into…

Another massive acquisition has been made that relates to T-Mobile. Leading to one less small provider that exists on its own now that it falls under one of the mobile giants. Ka’ena Corporation has sold Mint, as well as Plum, and Ultra Mobile to T-Mobile for $1.35 billion. It has been waiting for approval by regulators for the last few months but is now official. This means Ka’ena Corporation and co-owner/actor Ryan Renalds have walked away with a notable return. Now Mint will be another brand to T-Mobile like Metro is, or like Cricket is to AT&T. T-Mobile will keep…

A number of odd face masks made their way into the world over or after the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of them, a bit more fancy than necessary. Like the Dyson, that is an outrageously expensive personal air purifier and headphone combo. Or the Razer Zephyr, which offered built-in RGB lighting. All that anyone needed was an N95-rated face mask of any kind, but companies were hell-bent on providing excessive solutions to profit from that came with extravagant features. Of course, there will always be a niche for just about anything. However, with the attention placed on these “extra” features, some…

Gamers have been waiting a long time for Microsoft to properly get into the VR business when it comes to the Xbox ecosystem of products. Although it does seem that we might not ever see something that will play with the Xbox consoles, there is an Xbox-themed solution coming that will act as the next best thing and something to keep us busy (for now). Microsoft and Meta seemed to have teamed up to create an Xbox-themed Meta VR headset. Likely, it will just be the Meta Quest 3 themed with Xbox colors. Although we don’t know for sure as…

The company was at NAB 2024 showing off its current and coming line of products. It currently has a number of interesting devices spanning multi-gigabit Ethernet and SFP+ (fiber) solutions, PCIe and TB expansion solutions, and a number of docks. One of those docks is its Echo 20 Thunderbolt 4 SuperDock. Not only does it contain a large number of ins and outs, but it also has a few unique tricks you don’t normally find with other docks. Including RCA audio out jacks (L/R) for analog sound. The front (image above) contains a 3.5mm combo/TRRS jack (headphones, headset, microphone, etc),…

Another docking station has landed, seeking to provide users with as many ports as possible while only consuming a single physical port on your laptop or desktop setup. This one is a normal USB-C dock (no Thunderbolt or USB4 this round) coming from Baseus, offering 11 ports packed away into a tower design. The new Baseus 11-in-1 Spacemate USB-C Docking Station may not support TB or USB4 speeds, but it can still operate on computers via these ports thanks to backward compatibility. As long as the port is USB-C and supports DisplayPort over that USB-C connection, you should be able…

Nothing is invulnerable when it comes to security, including the TV hanging on your wall. Anything that is capable of connecting to your network is prone to breach and should always be kept updated. This is exactly the case when it comes to thousands of LG smart TVs with webOS. All of which need to be updated to patch newly found vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity companies like Bitdefender are constantly on the hunt for weaknesses within products, software, and overall ecosystems. When vulnerabilities are found, these companies publish their findings, usually waiting until after the affected products have been updated in order…
