NimbleTV.com – Finally, ALL your TV Wherever you Want It!

Posted: 23 Apr 2012 08:58 AM PDT

I love all my iDevices and media players and Smartphones, I really do. If I am being honest though, there are a few things (in my world at least) that being plugged in should get us… like being able to watch TV. You would think that someone, somewhere could come up with a way that I could watch my favorite shows without being charged per episode or having to do all this downloading and converting. So whats a girl to do?

Well, NimbleTV has just announced a game changing new subscription-based TV platform that, for the first time, will enable customers to access all of their television from anywhere in the world, on any device. Take a breath, you read it right…customers will actually access their existing subscription TV service using the new NimbleTV cloud-based software and now, they can watch their TV- wherever they are.

Nimble TV has nearly unlimited recording capabilities and it also has a built-in social features that enables customers to easily follow and record what their friends like to watch on TV. The service is a global platform and is stating out with TV offerings from the U.S. and India, and then it will roll out to other countries.

First, you need to get set up with a subscription TV provider that NimbleTV supports, just so you understand, you are watching the TV you have already paid for, this should be a win-win for everyone (and hopefully avoid the nasty unpleasantness of  lawsuits). In addition to local coverage, NimbleTV will include all your cable channels, depending on which packages you have selected.

The service has more than 10,000 hours of digital recording. There is no box to buy or equipment to set up and we can sign up as Beta testers starting today.  So head on over to NimbleTV.com to watch a short video or sign up to be a tester. This could be the start of something big! No word yet on monthly cost, the buzz is only around 20 bucks.

“The One” Keyboard for the iPhone, PC and Mac

Posted: 23 Apr 2012 06:00 AM PDT

The most famous “The One” would be Neo in the Matrix trilogy, although there is a far lesser known Jet Li flick going by the same name as well (The One, not Neo or The Matrix). Well, when it comes to the world of peripherals, is there something similar to look forward to? We are talking about the $99.99 “The One” Keyboard for the iPhone, PC and Mac from ThinkGeek, where you can tell right from the outset that it was designed and engineered with pride. How so, you ask? For starters, The One is connected to a compatible device via USB, and comes with layouts for the Mac as well as PC. Apart from that, when you press a button, it will work with your iOS- or Android-powered smartphone, not to mention tablet as well.

Not only that, there is also a place for you to rest your smartphone, so that it does not need to end up all over the place. A 5′ long USB cable is there to provide a comfortable length for you to work with.

Skype for Windows Phone is now official

Posted: 23 Apr 2012 05:30 AM PDT

Recently, Microsoft rolled out Skype for Windows Phone Beta at Mobile World Congress which happened this February at Barcelona, Spain, and we are proud to bring you word that the app itself will now be available in the Windows Phone Marketplace – not the Beta version, mind you, but the full blown app that has dropped the “Beta” tag, where it is now simply known as Skype for Windows Phone.

Using Skype for Windows Phone, you are now able to communicate with your family and friends from your Windows Phone device, as long as there is a decent 4G, 3G or Wi-Fi connection. Needless to say, you would obviously be far better off on a Wi-Fi connection should you want to make phone as well as video calls, since there is no data plan consideration to think about in the first place which might actually translate to a bill shock at the end of the month, not to mention a far faster speed on most Wi-Fi networks.

Apart from that, Skype for Windows Phone will see even more users having the opportunity to join the thriving community of 200 million people who uses Skype every month across just about any screen, whether it is on smartphones or tablets, computers or notebooks, as well as some smart TVs from different manufacturers.

If you do not have a friend or family member who has a Skype account just yet, Skype does offer you the chance to make affordable calls to landlines and mobiles too thanks to Skype Credit. With Skype for Windows Phone, you can create and hold one-to-one and group chats, never mind the fact that you might be engaged in the middle of a call at the moment, and change your profile information on the move, amongst others.

Other new features found in Skype for Windows Phone since the Beta release include video calling in portrait mode and friend management capabilities including invite, accept invitations, block, and unblock contacts. You can download Skype for Windows Phone in 18 languages: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, European Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, and Traditional Chinese.

Genius Maurus Professional Gaming Mouse

Posted: 23 Apr 2012 05:00 AM PDT

Gamers are extremely particular when it comes to the kind of peripherals they use, and more often than not, they would want to find any means possible to gain an advantage over their opponents, chiefly looking into the kind of hardware that they use first. After all, skill tends to play second fiddle among newbies, as they would prefer to brag about the kind of equipment that they have. Of course, when you move up the food chain, you would come up with different ways of playing a particular map or employing various strategies, and hardware, while important, is a secondary factor to consider.

For folks who are on the lookout for another piece of gaming hardware – a gaming mouse in particular, have yet a different option to consider, although it does not hail from the hallowed halls of Razer and Logitech this time around. Genius, a lesser known manufacturer, is putting up their Genius Maurus Professional Gaming Mouse for all and sundry to give it a go. Just what kind of hardware does it pack? Let us take a closer look at it in the extended post.

For starters, the Genius Maurus Professional Gaming Mouse will target FPS and RTS gamers, others such as Minesweeping office drones and MMORPG gamers can give this a pass. There are 5 programmable buttons in total, not to mention on-board memory that enables you to store your settings so that you need not reconfigure the game controls itself each time you plug your mouse into a new computer.

Not only that, there are four DPI settings to choose from – 450/900/1800/3500, and with a built-in 20 grams of weight, it allows you to play around with the “feel” of the mouse, as some games might require you to move your mouse faster without having to worry about accuracy, while weight adds stability to your hand’s movement for those precise moments. To make things a whole lot cooler, Genius has also thrown in a lighting system that illuminates the scroll wheel and logo.

The Genius Maurus Professional Gaming Mouse will come with a rubber coating finish for non-slip grip, retailing for $49.99 a pop.
