Razer Onza Still Looking Good, Still No Release Date

I saw the Onza back in June at E3. I saw it last year at CES. I played games on it both times, and both times was impressed. Today was no different. So why the hell can't they finalize and ship the damn thing already? (more&hel...

My Name Is LG And I Put OLED On iPhone

LG, in a press conference about 3DTV, bored me. 3D is boring. What's interesting is LG's work on PPI (Pixels Per Inch), and how they view different display technologies, like IPS and OLED. So, for the sake of science, why not t...
