It’s hard to keep track of each new iteration of your favorite mobile OS, especially when talking about the incremental upgrades. Jelly Bean 4.2 may have been the cat’s meow for the last few months, but 4.3 is upon us.
MKBHD takes a look at the new OS, and tells us the top features to get excited about. Unless you’re running a Nexus device, however, it might be a while before you’re graced with the goodness.
Still contemplating picking up one of Google’s newly revealed Chromecast HDMI dongles? Well, they’re kind of sold out. But they won’t be forever!
In the meantime, check out a great hands-on video of the new device from MKBHD, Marques Brownlee. Spoiler alert: For $35, this thing is definitely worth every penny.
With an updates display, sleek new design, and improved Android 4.3 OS, Google’s new Nexus 7 device may be the best on the market. Made by Asus, the tablet is definitely a head turner.
I was able to test one of these out, and I have to say, it’s an incredibly aluring device. Do you need a 7″ tablet in addition to your smartphone or larger tablet? Probably not. But after spending a few minutes messing around, you’ll want to take it home.

Part of the allure of owning a tablet or smartphone is the massive application library of games you have at your finger tips. And for Android, the experience is even deeper, where running your favorite old school video game off an emulator is incredible easy. While running a Wii Remote or Xbox 360 controller has been possible for a while now via bluetooth, dedicated Android gaming controllers are starting to flood the marketplace. Two new competitors are Power A’s MOGA controller, and Nyko’s Playpad Pro. Instead of splitting the reviews, I thought it would be more interesting to put the two head-to-head.
Nintendo’s newest home console launched less than a week ago in North America, and gamers are going bananas for the Big N’s first HD offering. Stores and online retailers are sold out, and the buzz is growing. After spending several days immersed in all the console has to offer, I wanted to give some impressions to those who haven’t yet purchased the Wii U, or others across the pond that have a few days left before their upcoming launches. Here’s some key touch-points:
Google always does a top-notch job with their viral web ads, and the latest is no different. The tech company decided to show off the collaboration features of Google Docs by featuring one of the most well known duos in music, Hall & Oates. What developed is a truly brilliant commercial. Thoughts?
After a summer of superheroes, I am more than ready for a fall filled with Bond. James Bond. For I am a 007 fanatic beyond words. I love the characters, the action, the suspense, and the score all the same.
After production delays galore, Bond’s latest resurrection dubbed Skyfall will finally release in just a couple months. From what I can tell, this will be another exciting entry in the franchise. Fancy gadgets, like a finger-print detecting gun? Check. A creepy foreign foe with a bad dye-job? Check. Dame Judi Dench being her usual badass self? Check.
Anyone else excited for this fall’s new Bond? Sound off below. And check out the new international trailer above.
Over two years ago, I, Jason Leavey — started DaftBit.com, a blog dedicated to all things gaming, gadgets, and geekery. I had the same ambitious goals as every other tech-obsessed lost soul floating through their mid-twenties; aspirations of revolutionizing the Internet and online journalism by inventing a wheel that was invented years prior. I wanted to develop an immensely popular site which would provide a constant flow of news about the biggest stories and features relating to geek culture, whether that be software reviews, announcements of new technology products, or geekery in the form of the latest Zelda-inspired Etsy creation. In some ways, I succeeded.
