Amazon is in talks to resurrect 'The Expanse'
Sources talking to Deadline, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter have all claimed that Amazon is in discussions to resurrect The Expanse for a fourth season after it was canceled by Syfy.
'Dreams' makes imagination manifest on the PS4
Like Little Big Planet before it, the premise behind Dreams has long confused and infuriated me. Why on Earth would you pay good money for a game in which you work to create smaller games? But after puttering around in what is essentially a console-based development platform during a demo in Santa Monica last week, Andrew Tarantola realized that this game isn't built for gamers -- it's built for artists.
With Dreams, you get an unprecedented level of control over the content you can draw on in creations, or dreams. Literally every aspect of the in-game experience is editable -- the color of the sky, the land's distance from the sun, the background music, sound effects, all the way down to the frame-by-frame animation of the sprites -- you can control it.
Razer's revamped Blade gaming laptop is an upgrade in every way
The Razer Blade is back, with a refined design centered around a 15.6-inch display with incredibly thin borders. With that, the new Razer Blade is ready to face off with the plethora of lighting gaming laptops this year. The company has paced in a six-core eighth-generation Core i7-8750H CPU, and your choice of NVIDIA GTX 1060 or 1070 Max-Q GPUs. That 15.6-inch screen is available with either a 1080p 60Hz or 144Hz panel, or a 4K multi-touch offering. For the first time, Razer is also color calibrating its displays as they leave the factory. Given the larger screen, the new Blade is also a bit heavier than before, weighing in at 4.56 pounds for the 1080p version and 4.73 pounds for the 4K.
Inside the automotive startup taking EVs off-road
The Tesla Model X is the "least capable SUV ever made," according to Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe. It sits too low to the ground, for one, and yet, somehow, most American garages aren't tall enough for the rear doors to open. It's something that looks great sitting next to a Lamborghini or a Porsche, but it's more style than substance. It's an SUV in name alone. You won't take your Model X to ride the sand dunes for a weekend, but that's precisely what Scaringe wants you to do with anything his startup makes.
It's understandable if you don't know who or what Rivian is. The company, founded in 2009, has around 350 employees, and its executive team is composed of designers and executives from Chrysler, McLaren, Hummer-maker AM General and others.
There might be too much competition in the luxury sports sedan market for a company like Rivian to stand out, and that's why the team is aiming at a space that's relatively devoid of alternative-fuel vehicles: off-road.
Nokia Sleep review: Smart home controls don't live up to the hype
The Nokia Sleep bed sensor works just fine as a sleep tracker, but when it comes to smart home integration, it was decidedly disappointing. Not only was it a little buggy, it didn't really make use of the device's sleep-pattern sensing abilities, and it doesn't even have an alarm. At the end, the Sleep doesn't do much more than other sleep trackers or sleep-tracking apps.
What we're playing: 'Wyvern Tales'
If you still own a Lynx and are actively using it, you probably already know about Wyvern Tales. There's not a whole lot of news to keep up with. But everyone else can let James Trew explain why some people will pay $50 to play a cutesy RPG on their 90s-era handheld.
