A leaked trailer for Activision's "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" seemed to showcase a purported zombie mode in the game. Many that it would be impossible for the Sledgehammer, Activision's newest developer, to integrate such mode in the new game when the game is about to be released.
However, it is now confirmed that the hoard of the undead are indeed coming to the newest first-person shooter game. It won't be coming free, but as an additional downloadable content.
GameStop, who confirmed the news through a press release, said that Zombies will come with the $49.99 DLC Season Pass. This includes five maps from the get-go, additional maps, and the zombie horde mode. more >>
Apple has been constantly under the watch of its customers, who are eagerly awaiting their first foray into wearable technology. The Cupertino-based tech giant has remained quiet about the actual release date of the Apple Watch, only letting on that it will be released sometime in next year.
Apple Watch, the first wearable tech from the company, was introduced last September alongside the Phone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The square-faced, elegant digital timepiece has been demonstrated extensively but its release date is still maintained to be around the "early of 2015."
That could change, according to the latest reports. more >>
It's only been a week or so since the release of the iPad Air 2 and a plethora of mixed reviews have been making its rounds on the Internet. While the Cupertino company's latest release received praise worthy of its namesake, there was one common thing that the reviews echoed: "Is the iPad Air 2 a radical improvement over the first one?"
Certainly, many would argue if Apple indeed invented the concept of the "tablet" but if there is any consolation, Apple arguably has the best tablet offering in the tech market. Currently, disregarding public opinion, the iPad Air is the standard which all tech companies aspire towards.
The iPad Air 2 has the usual Apple trademarks: a thinner profile, the premium look and design, even its premium price tag screams Apple. However, the iPad Air 2's greatest competition isn't Microsoft's Surface Pro or even Google's Nexus 9 – it's the iPad Air 2. Sure the iPad Air 2 has a 64-bit A8X chipset and the TouchID fingerprint sensor, but is it enough to convince people to upgrade from an already great tablet? more >>
Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system is still a long way away with a late 2015 release date. Until then, users are stuck with using Windows 8.1 or even the older and more stable Windows 7. With Windows 8.1 receiving mixed criticisms from users, Microsoft is hoping to make Windows 10 "the best of both worlds."
Windows 8 was basically Windows 7 but optimized for touchscreen capabilities with the "Tiles" feature. The move was to make the Windows OS a stronger competitor against Apple's iOS and Google's Android. The approach forced Windows 8 users to boot to a touchscreen environment but for those who used a desktop only found the experience confusing.
While Microsoft has given up from forcing users to convert to a full-screen touch user interface, the company still hasn't abandoned the touch concept. Windows 10 is looking to be an operating system which can be run on both desktops and on mobile devices, much like how Google is merging desktop and mobile interfaces with Material Design. more >>

Nokia isn't exactly the strongest smartphone manufacturer across the board but they definitely have some good key points which still attracts a moderately sized user base. The Windows Phone system isn't exactly attractive either but Microsoft is working endlessly to bring it up to par with the iOS and Android systems.
The Swedish phone company's Lumia line has a wide range of phones which caters to an equally wide user base, from those seeking an entry-level budget smartphone to those wanting a high-end high-spec smartphone. Somewhat recently, Nokia released the Nokia Lumia 730, a mid-range phone.
While the Lumia line isn't as popular and coveted as the iPhone line or the Galaxy S line, it does have its own trademark characteristics. Nokia has always been known for producing the most rugged and sturdy phones in the market and that quality carries over with the Lumia line. Nokia phones also have the most powerful cameras in the smartphone market too. more >>
