Earlier this year, Intel had experienced a delay in their production lines, causing Apple to push the release date of the new Macbooks a few months into 2015. Intel has announced, however, that production for the Broadwell chips are now back on track and will be shipping before the holiday season kicks in.
Intel however, is producing a few variants of the Broadwell chips and has only confirmed that it will be putting out Broadwell chips of the M variety. What Apple needs unfortunately are the U variants of the chips, which may not come out of production until 2015. This will invariably also push the release date of the Macbook Air with Retina to 2015.
When the Broadwell U chips do come out, the Macbook Air with Retina Displays should follow closely. The new chips that will replace the Haswell processor in previous models will enable the Macbooks to experience better battery life by as much as 30 percent. more >>
It's only been a few months since the Galaxy S5 was released and people are already looking forward to the next installment to Samsung's flagship smartphone line. It won't be for a while though before the Galaxy S6 is put out into the market as the South Korean tech giant usually waits one year before releasing its next smartphone.
Although other phones like the iPhone 6 or the Nexus 6 or the Galaxy Note 4 are preparing for a 2014 release, Samsung would most likely bide their time before releasing the S6. Like the Galaxy S5 was released during the Mobile World Congress in 2014, the Galaxy S6 would likely come out the same way during the MWC 2015.
It is still unconfirmed as to what specs the Galaxy S6 would be having because of rumors that Samsung is still planning to launch the Galaxy Alpha, an improved version of the S5 which is also known as the Galaxy S5 Prime. more >>
The tablet market is a fierce competitive environment that pushes manufacturers to create a tablet that differentiates itself from the others. Apple had been fortunate enough to get into the market first, giving them the experience to create quality tablets, albeit at a premium price tag.
Samsung on the other hand counters this by releasing a large number of products that may at the very least cater to something that the consumer is looking for, may it be screen size, performance or price.
A good comparison would be the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and the iPad Air. Both tablets have been out on the market for a fairly long time and offer stalwart performance for almost the same price. more >>

Bungie has been famously known for being the creators of the multi-billion dollar sci-fi shooter franchise, "Halo." Their first game as a new stand-alone game company is the highly anticipated sci-fi first-person shooter/adventure game "Destiny."
