Twitter’s new layout is here.

And it is beautiful!

It has certain elements to it that definitely makes you think of Facebook’s profile layout. However, we think it’s much cleaner and maintains that Twitter magic to it. Have a look below.

Playstation VR Headset. Launching Soon.

vr headset

 

Get ready for the next level of gaming. Sony is getting ready to announce their long awaiting Playstation VR Headset, with a planned unveiling at GDC next month.

Sony has been pretty tight-lipped up to now, but analysts estimate the price point will be between $100 – $200 dollars, beating out the current market leader (Oculus Rift) in price by $100. Considering this VR headset can replace your HD television ($1000+), the price may be a steal (depending on whether or not you use your television primarily for gaming).

If these rumors are true, Sony will definitely continue their winning streak (already selling double the units Xbox One did last month) and having their big launch in Japan just yesterday. The Playstation 4 is seeing so much demand, Sony estimates a console shortage for another three months.

It appears that hackers are relentlessly targeting various online publications and services. It’s difficult to say what the exact motives of recent hackings at companies like Forbes and Kickstarter are – but it is definitely a good lesson to keep your password frequently updated and never use a common password on more than one website or app.

 

 

Kickstarter Hacked.

kickstarter

Kickstarter’s CEO, Yancey Strickler today announced on a blog post that the biggest crowdfunding website was recently hacked.

He mentions that no user credit card information was compromised, however user login credentials may have been jeopardized.

It is advised that you update your Kickstarter profile information as soon as possible.

The Post Reads:

“Accessed information included usernames, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers and encrypted passwords,” he wrote. “Actual passwords were not revealed, however it is possible for a malicious person with enough computing power to guess and crack an encrypted password, particularly a weak or obvious one.”

All Hail Grand Wizard Cartman!

We just received a 13 minutes GAMEPLAY videos of the upcoming South Park: The Stick of Truth.

And we simply cannot wait to join the fight for the universe shattering relic – “the stick”.

Get ready for the NEW Twitter

Twitter is testing out its new layout. Have a look at one of the first pages to change to the new layout.

To us, it seems Twitter is taking a few layout cues from Facebook, in terms of profile image, header image and menus – moving to a more “squarish” look.

Pros:

Cleaner, more modern & professional.

Cons:

Away from the “casual” feel we have all grown to since the launch of Twitter.

Let us assume that you want to share a cool song video in the “Songs Discovered” block. Just mention the title of the piece, and select the category (from post, video, or slider). Since this is a video piece, the third field in the box says URL. Just copy the video URL here and you are good to go. Here’s how it will look.

These pieces keep on stacking on top of each other, and hence smoothly add up to the pool of information.

The Block Box is another cool feature that will let you make the most of your experience at blockes. This feature makes it super convenient for you to add blocks that interest you, so that you do not have to search for them every time you wish to soak yourself in the new updates made to those blocks. Let us take the Songs Discovered block again to explain how blocks are added to the block box.
