NVIDIA SHIELD Review: A Bright New Future For Android Gaming... We Hope

NVIDIA SHIELD Review: A Bright New Future For Android Gaming... We Hope

NVIDIA’s SHIELD is a gaming device that defies classification. The full-sized controls and Android software make it more than a portable gaming device, at least on paper, but it doesn't compete with (or complement) more conventional mobile form factors. SHIELD is something entirely new.

The only way to evaluate a gaming machine is on how it plays games, and in that respect, SHIELD is amazing... at least in a few specific circumstances.

Animated PNG format: How does it compare to Animated WebP and GIF?

Animated PNG format: How does it compare to Animated WebP and GIF?

The Graphics Interchange Format was initially developed by CompuServe in 1987, and has become a staple of the internet. However, GIFs have some limitations, and many sites have switched to using HTML5 video in WebM or MP4 format (such as Gfycat, Imgur, Twitter, and others).

There are a few competing formats that are designed to overcome the problems of GIFs, namely Animated PNG and Animated WebP. Now that Chrome 59 (currently in beta) supports both formats, it's worth discussing - which is better?

Android: A Look Back To 2012, And A Look Forward To 2013

Android: A Look Back To 2012, And A Look Forward To 2013

Happy New Year! It's that time again; with the new year comes our new annual prediction post. I tackled this last year, and rather than do a bunch of crazy, pulled-from-thin-air predictions, I ended up with a link-filled research-fest for the year. It worked out pretty well, so that's what's on the docket for today. First though, I'll take a look and see just how many of last year's predictions and rumors came true, and provide some updates for the more important topics.

A Look Back To 2012

What a crazy year. 2012 brought us two versions of Jelly Bean: 4.1 and 4.2

Every application in this list has been painstakingly hand-picked by yours truly, and they're all arranged by price for easy navigation.

Gmail wish list: 10 features we (still) want

Email remains the linchpin of online communication, and while we heavily rely on everything from instant messaging to video chat in order to stay in touch with the people we need to in our lives, we always find ourselves turning back to tried-and-true email.

Opera Wants To Help You Save Data And Money With Opera Max, A New App That Optimizes Most Mobile Network Traffic

Opera Wants To Help You Save Data And Money With Opera Max, A New App That Optimizes Most Mobile Network Traffic

Opera has long been doing good things in the area of data compression on mobile devices with its mobile browser thanks to Off-Road mode, but what if an app existed that could optimize nearly all mobile data while on the go? Thanks to a new app called Opera Max, that's a reality.

It uses the same kind of compressions technology used in Opera Browser, but instead of just working its magic on web pages, it attempts to do this for most applications that access the web. How's this possible? Basically, it sets up a VPN that measures all the data used on the device in question, and sends all requests through Opera's compression servers.

[New App] Opera Browser Beta, With Ground-Up Redesign And Webkit Rendering Engine, Is Live In The Play Store

Get those fingers ready, Opera fans: the biggest thing to happen to your favorite mobile browser in years has arrived.

30 Android apps with dark themes that are easy on the eyes

Personally, I love dark themes in apps. Oftentimes, one of the first things I do is switch to the Night or Dark Mode in every one that supports it. Since I know that I'm not the only one out there that wants my apps to reflect my soul, I gathered together thirty to help some of you get started on your path to the dark side.
