Asus Officially Outs the Transformer Book V; Windows/Android Dual Boot Hybrid Device

Jun 02, 2014 - 9:47 AM - by dgstorm

It looks like Asus is truly trying to create a device that is nearly all things to all people. Frequently, that type of strategy fails, but it's possible Asus may have hit on that magical winning combination. They just announced the Transformer Book V, which is a tablet/phone/laptop hybrid device. Along with the all-in-one combination of these physical devices, it even includes the ability to dual-boot between Windows and Android on the tablet and laptop portions of the device.

Here's what the Transformer Book V consists of:

  • It has a 12.5-inch tablet screen dock
  • Combining the phone with the tablet dock makes it a tablet
  • Combining the phone & tablet with the keyboard dock transforms it into a laptop
  • While in tablet or laptop mode it can switch between Windows and Android (although the phone is Android only)
  • The phone section contains an Intel Moorefield chip
  • The keyboard dock section contains an Intel Core CPU
  • It contains 2GB of RAM in the phone/tablet
  • While the laptop section has 4GB of RAM
  • The phone and tablet use 64GB of storage and the laptop has 128GB of storage

The only other specs/hardware revealed was the following:

  • 1 x DisplayPort 1.2 (4K at 60Hz)
  • 1 x Mini DisplayPort 1.2 (4K at 60Hz)
  • 1 x HDMI 2.0 (4K at 60Hz) / MHL 3.0 (4K at 30Hz)
  • 1 x HDMI 1.4 (4K at 30Hz)
  • 4 x USB 3.0 ports

Asus is really taking things to a whole new level with the "Transformer" series. The name is more fitting than ever!

Gameplay Trailer for 'Godfire Rise of Prometheus' Reveals Incredible Mobile Graphics

May 28, 2014 - 10:45 AM - by dgstorm

We found an impressive video to share with you guys today on an upcoming mobile game called "Godfire: Rise of Prometheus." The video showcases the shockingly good graphics of the game. In fact, it looks so good, it's hard to believe this is a mobile game. Of course, when we find out it is powered by the new Unreal Engine 3, it begins to make perfect sense as to why its visual fidelity easily competes with some gaming consoles.

This game easily looks better than Infinity Blade, which is(was) the gold standard for mobile graphics. Thematically and mechanically, the game looks very similar to the God of War series. The game will supposedly be coming to iOS and Android app stores this June.

Slightly Off Topic: Kids Reactions to Old Computer Are Hilarious and Priceless

May 27, 2014 - 10:29 AM - by dgstorm

The above video is slightly off topic, but we do get to see a smartphone compared to a classic Apple II home desktop computer from the 70's, so that's enough of a window to be relevant. Regardless, this may just be the funniest thing you see all day (if not all week). A group of various aged young kids are introduced to the old computer and their mind is completely blown by the archaic nature of the device.

Hey, at least one of them finds it better than Flappy Birds...

Enjoy!

Time to Change Some Passwords Again: eBay Hacked

May 21, 2014 - 9:09 AM - by dgstorm

The bad guys are really becoming a "pita"! Another high profile company was just hacked, so it's time to change your passwords again. This time eBay was the victim of the "Black Hats." They just issued a press statement detailing their security breach. The gist of it was this,

[C]hanging passwords is a best practice, and will help enhance security for eBay users.
No kidding?!? Why is it becoming so difficult for these companies to keep their databases secure?

Here's a link to the rest of their statement on the matter: eBay Inc. To Ask eBay Users To Change Passwords | ebay inc

Off Topic News: New Interstellar Trailer Hits the Web Showing More Details

May 16, 2014 - 2:40 PM - by dgstorm

The newest trailer for director Chris Nolan's upcoming sci-fi movie, Interstellar, just hit the web. It's obviously not Android related at all, but it gave me chills watching it, so I simply had to share it. What is most intriguing about the film is that it takes the old formula of needing to "save the world" and targets it much closer to reality than most movies do.

Setting aside politics, there are a great many smart people in the world predicting that the real problems we will face in the middle/later part of the 21st century will be running out of the resources of water and food instead of oil and money. This movie drives home that very distinct possibility, and brings with it the vibe of all humans striving together for the greater good. Wouldn't that be a thing to see?
