Valve: Removing Metro Exodus From Steam Is 'Unfair'

From PC Mag: Until yesterday, anyone eager to play first-person shooter Metro Exodus on their gaming rig when it releases on Feb. 15 could pre-order it on Steam. However, that's no longer the case after publisher Deep Silver and developer 4A Games signed an exclusive launch deal with the Epic Games Store. Valve is understandably not happy about this.

Microsoft Bing's China outage may have been a technical error, not a block

From CNET: China's government may not have censored Microsoft's Bing search engine after all.

The service's outage stemmed from a technical problem, Reuters reported Monday, citing an anonymous source.

Cooler Master MM830 Review (Page 1 of 4)

A few years ago when I first moved to Canada, I went shopping for a television with my dad. There were many options and I can not exactly remember what my dad was wanting to get, but we ended up buying a television that had 3D. It came with all of the Shrek movies and all of them could be watched in 3D. It also came with a couple of 3D glasses. We thought it was pretty cool, but we only watched the first Shrek movie in 3D and then promptly forgot about the whole thing. It was such a niche feature on a television when most people just want good regular display quality. At least the screen had excellent quality other than 3D, otherwise it would have been quite a waste. It seems as if it is becoming increasingly more common to find a normal product, like a television, with some sort of added twist to it, even though no one really cares about 3D nowadays. The twist is usually a little niche, but it can also be very good. I remember that for a while, Razer had those keyboards with a small touch screen to the side for some added functions. Apple has something similar with some of the newer MacBooks featuring a touch bar along the top of the keyboard. One of the best mice I have ever owned is the SteelSeries Sensei. It had a small niche extra feature as well, which was a screen on the bottom of the mouse. I personally never used it as I never really understood what I should put there. Today, we have the Cooler Master MM830, which features an OLED screen on the side. Will it be one of those niche features with no real use, or will it be useful? Read on to find out!

Tesoro Gram Spectrum TKL Review

Earlier in the month, I was on the phone with my internet provider looking to secure a cheaper plan. With the holiday plans that were still in effect, I decided to call them to hopefully get a better option. If there is one thing I dislike about calling in, it is the super long time before getting in contact with an actual person. In spite of all this, I held on because I knew the end goal would be worth it. Fast forward two hours and some necessary patience, I ended up being offered a two year plan for approximately thirty dollars cheaper per month while also adding internet television. Since my real goal was just to get a less expensive plan, everything else was just a bonus that I was happy to have received. I think it goes to show that good things can come to those who wait. Taking a look at today's review, two and a half years ago, we received the original Gram Spectrum from Tesoro and we received it quite positively. One thing I really wanted at the time was to see a tenkeyless edition. Even though it may have taken a bit longer than I would have liked, I am glad Tesoro finally has produced today's product in the Gram Spectrum TKL. However, we have seen quite a few more slim competition in products like the Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile in the meantime as well. How does this compare nowadays and is it still the great sleek option we enjoyed back then? Let us read on to find out!
