Have you grown up on a diet full of violent video games? Well, certainly Mortal Kombat is one of those franchises that shocked everyone when it was first released, where digital blood was spilled along the way. It definitely looks tame by today’s standards, but back then, it created quite a buzz in the video game industry, and then some. Having said that, Mortal Kombat X for iOS is now available to download from the App Store, where you can check out the striking graphics in the trailer above.
There will be 24 Kombatants to choose from, which should offer you plenty of opportunities to master all of them, and apart from fan favorites such as Scorpion and Sub-Zero, there will also be newcomers to the scene, Cassie Cage and Kotal Kahn included. Mortal Kombat X for iOS works great across platforms, so that players will be able to unlock content across all platforms as long as they play.
Sprint Reveals Combined iPhone-iPad “For Life” Deal
It was in October last year that the folks over at Sprint updated their iPhone for Life plan, where $80 a month would net you an Apple iPhone 6 on lease for a couple of years, alongside a plan that has unlimited talk, text and data. Of course, if you would prefer the larger iPhone 6 Plus, it would cost you from $85 monthly onward. It seems that Sprint intends to push the envelope further – at $100 a month, the iPhone 6, iPad mini 3, unlimited talk, text and data on the phone and 2GB of data for the tablet will be all yours.
If one were to run the numbers through a calculator, you would have to spend approximately $117 monthly, which means Sprint’s recently revealed plan would help you out with a 15% savings in total – that would amount up to $17. Of course, leasing the devices would mean you would need to make sure that your handset is more carefully taken care of than normal, but then again, you will always have the latest products at the end of a 2-year cycle. Not too shabby a deal, don’t you think so?
Huawei TalkBand B1 Makes Its Way To The U.S.
Now that the market for smartwatches are definitely growing – never mind that there are no explosive figures whatsoever to report of, it is a steady market which is worth checking out. If you have always wanted to make the jump to a smartwatch device, but was held back by the lack of choice as well as relatively high price tag, how about checking out the $129.99 Huawei TalkBand B1?
This unique smartwatch can be picked up from GetHuawei.com, although one can also check out the likes of Newegg.com, Amazon.com and Fry’s Electronics in order to purchase it. The TalkBand B1 is capable of tracking your sleep, count the number of your steps taken in a day, and even to compute the number of calories that you have burned. Heck, it will also do its level best to wake you up using its smart alarm when it figures out that you happen to be in the light cycle of your sleep.
Other features include iOS and Android compatibility, NFC support, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 90mAh battery that allows you to make use of your earpiece for up to 7 hours – non-stop, now how about that?
Best Buy: Tablet Sales Begin To “Crash”
There has been different kinds of studies that were done in the past to point to the possible reduction in tablet sales, and a general slowing down of the market. However, it does not look as though the tablet is going to go the way of the netbook or the dodo. Some see tablets as a luxury rather than a necessity, and those who already have enough spare change have made their purchases already, while the do-not-have’s continue to remain in the same position. Best Buy CEO, Hubert Joly, thinks that laptop hybrids play a role in slowing down tablet sales to a point where they are “crashing”.
“Crashing” sounds rather serious, but actually it was meant more as a relative term, when placed side by side with the amazing growth spurt that the tablet industry went through right at the very beginning. So far, there is no actual defined upgrade cycle for a tablet which might have something to do with the slowing down of tablet sales, so it can be pretty difficult convincing existing tablet owners to upgrade. What do you think of the situation?
