YouTube Gaming gets an app

downloadYouTube Gaming has finally shifted to live, directly competing against Amazon’s Twitch. Sure enough the platform has now become completely accessible as well as launching an official application for YouTube Gaming is now available for download.

For those of you not familiar with YouTube Gaming, this is Google’s take on the live game streaming industry. While the focus is primarily on live streaming of gameplay, recorded content will also be available which includes past broadcasts, recorded gameplay, and Video on Demand. In fact all gaming related content  currently on YouTube will also available from within YouTube Gaming.

The idea is to make it as easy  as possible to stream gameplay on YouTube Gaming, so that anyone who wants to do it can easily pick it up and go for it. For content creators, and most YouTube accounts, the button to Go Live should be up in the top right when signed into your account. The layout for the application is pretty much identical to the YouTube Gaming portal in browsers as well. Flipping between the two should be pretty easy once you’ve learned where everything is.

One step Youtube Gaming may have over Twitch is that anyone with access to the streaming dashboard and monetize their stream, allowing the gamer to earn some money from their gaming experience. Twitch requires a certain amount of viewership before you can be partnered with Twitch, once down ads are used to generate revenue. With YouTune Gaming, as long as you can access the streaming dashboard, you can monetize your stream as well as enable Fan Funding cards.

Archos announce the Diamond S

Archos 2Today, the French brand ARCHOS is excited to announce its newest addition to the ARCHOS Diamond line: the ARCHOS Diamond S!

“There is an enormous demand for superlative smartphones like the ARCHOS Diamond S at prices that the average person can afford,” explains Loic Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS. “We’re happy to be releasing this product that furthers the mission of technical quality for everyone.”

ARCHOS: a story of high-technology democratization

Through its releases of 4G/LTE and impeccably-designed products, ARCHOS has established itself as the foremost democratizer of top-rate technology. Recent high-end ARCHOS smartphone releases have included the ARCHOS 50 Diamond and the newest ARCHOS Helium smartphones, which have been well-received by critics and customers. The new ARCHOS Diamond S embodies this same democratic high-tech spirit and builds upon its legacy with its powerful octa-core processor, exceptional specifications, and sexy design for under £159.99.

Archos

World-class features, one device

The ARCHOS Diamond S has a 5” Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass 3 screen that puts the smartphone in the premier leagues of screen quality. Its flat, glass-finish design is a perfect external manifestation of the outstanding technology inside the device. Sleek and slim, the phone slides easily into a pocket and nestles comfortably in the palm of a hand with its 118 grams. With just once glance, the design hints at all the brilliance that lies therein.

It also features an Octa-Core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage, so music, games, and content can be enjoyed without compromises in speed or storage. To complement this performance, the smartphone comes installed with Android 5.1 Lollipop, Android’s newest operating system. Battery management, push notification display, and user interface are all improved in this new OS. It also has fast charging capability to be fully ready as soon as possible.

The ARCHOS Diamond S offers dual cameras with impressive specs, so there is no need to settle for mediocre picture quality when using a cell phone to snap shots instead of a standalone camera. The back camera captures scenes at 16 MP and the front-camera takes 8 MP pictures for excellent selfie and videochatting visuals. As is customary for the ARCHOS Diamond line, the ARCHOS Diamond S will offer 4G/LTE connectivity for the fastest download speeds available on cellular networks today.

The ARCHOS Diamond S will be presented at IFA in Berlin, beginning September 4, 2015. For more on the ARCHOS story and the brand’s products, the ARCHOS booth will be in Hall 4.2/121.

Leaking the Huawei Nexus 6

QQ_20150824155811Some images have appeared online today of what could possibly be the Huawei Nexus 6 refresh. A few days ahead of the Huawei launch of their new flagship phone these images may be something other than the new Nexus. The claims are coming from a Google+ user, Tiessen Fu insisting the device was given to him by a friend working on the Nexus successor.

For a design this radically different to the current Nexus 6 Google may be making some insane marketing choices. However, there is a lot to be said about breaking the mould and going with something different. It would be a hard sell to ask a company to keep some of the design influences from the previous model built by an entirely different manufacturer. Certainly companies do this however with a Nexus there is no need to imitate as the name and brand are already established.

I hope this is the new Nexus 6, whilst many are suggesting that it is a ugly ducking I find it refreshing to see something a little different.

ASUS Zenfone 2 crams in 256GB storage

enhanced-15664-1440341113-8There was never a storage war. Manufacturers seemed to be content to bring 8, 16 and 32gb variants with only the hardware daring to go further. Why both we the customer can go out a purchase a an SD card to expand as little to no expense for the manufacturer. Few grumbled with only those looking a cheap phone with 4 or 8gbs becoming infuriated. Recently, we have seen manufacturers becoming creative when it comes to including the SD card in a combined storage solution and others hoping that the cloud to solve the storage starved.

On of the less popular flagships out there, the Zenfone 2, is about to be produced in a Deluxe Special Edition versions with specs identical to the high-end version of the original Zenfone 2, 4GB of RAM and a faster Atom Z3580 processor, with the a mch greater storage capacity. A 256GB version will be available in two colors, one with a diamond-pattern back and another with black and grey diagonal stripes. Both get orange trim around the front screen and navigation panel and around the volume buttons on the rear. The device also includes a mircoSD card slot that supports up to 128gb cards.

The diamond rear is very reminiscent of the old HTC Touch Diamond from years gone by, a few with many merits however I seem to remember the back design not being one as the phone was prone to rocking when used on a flat surface. At any rate this is an exciting addition to the Zenfone line and I hope to have a look at this in the near future.
