Pebble Time release set to May 27 despite troubling rumors

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Good news Pebble fans! The company’s Time smartwatch is set to ship out next week on May 27 for customers who backed the device on Kickstarter.

Pebble actually announced the news on Kickstarter earlier this week. Since then, however, the company has been hit with rumors that it’s struggling to “stay afloat.” Despite raising $18 million in its recent campaign, the smartwatch-maker may need even more cash to keep the lights on. Unfortunately, it looks like most investors aren’t willing to take a bet on Pebble now that the Apple Watch has officially entered the wearables market.

Thankfully, it looks like any financial issues the company may or may not have won’t affect early shipments of the Pebble Time. The new device features a completely overhauled design, with a color e-ink display, a built-in microphone and a new Timeline operating system. We can’t wait to get our hands on this watch.

Even if this model does ship though, that doesn’t mean Pebble will survive in the long run. The company could still get squeezed out by Apple, Google, Samsung and other established competitors. In that scenario the Pebble Time may be the startup’s final device, making it a true collector’s item. Hopefully that’s not the case though, since we have a feeling Pebble still has plenty left to offer.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
