Apart from Age of Ultron, Jurassic World is probably the most anticipated flick of this year. While the Jurassic World trailers to date have been keeping us in suspense on the ‘star’ of the show (No. We are not talking about Chris Pratt), the recent official toy images give us a look at the man-made genetic hybrid known as Indominous Rex. Yucks. That is one heck of an ugly dino, don’t you think? Even the name already freak us out. Not surprisingly, the Indominous Rex looks pretty much like the infamous T-Rex, but only scarier. Just look at those spikes! Which kind of reminds us of alligators and Godzilla, and the red eyes there? That is what nightmares are made of. Seriously. We are not sure when it will hit the shelves, but Hasbro has released more official images, including the packaging, along with pricing earlier last month for other garden variety.

ARCHOS Magnus Tablet Has a Whopping 256GB Storage – Thanks to the Innovative Fusion Storage

128GB is the max you can get from a tablet’s internal storage today, but that is about to change, thanks to ARCHOS Fusion Storage. So what the heck is Fusion Storage? For starter, Fusion Storage is much like today’s hybrid drive on our desktops which combines the high capacity of a traditional HDD and the speed of a SSD (aka flash drive), but in the case of ARCHOS tablets, it fuses the internal storage of the tablet with the microSD card. There’s no hardware wizardry here; it is essentially software driven where, when activated, automatically migrates data from the microSD card and optimizes memory balance. In short, Fusion Storage will treat the onboard storage and the microSD as one, and the result? More space for your apps and games.

Huawei’s First Smartwatch, Huawei Watch, is Probably the Least Geekiest Wearable of All

Chinese communication giant, Huawei has dabbled in many things and now, it can add smartwatch to the firm’s portfolio. The Huawei Watch, as it is called, is the outfit’s first smartwatch to join its growing line of wearables.

Much like LG Watch R and Urbane, Huawei Watch takes on a round case design, along with a “sparkling” 1.4-inch circular AMOLED display, offering 400 x 400 pixels and 286ppi.
