  • Oculus Rift delays flatten virtual-reality fan fervor

    Oculus’ longtime supporters have declared themselves alienated by the company’s inability to deliver (Source: AP)
    Virtual reality, oddly enough, isn’t immune to the problems that arise in practical reality. Just ask would-be fans of the Oculus Rift headset, many – possibly most – of whom are still waiting for their $600 gadgets more than four weeks after they started shipping .
    The delay, naturally, has sparked online grousing and even some data-based activism, including the creation of a crowdsourced spreadsheet for tracking who received their prized VR gear and when. Some longtime supporters of Oculus have declared themselves alienated by the company’s inability to deliver; others have defected to rival VR systems, or are at least considering it.

  • Amkette EvoTV 2 first impressions: The box that turns your old TV smart

    Amkette EvoTV 2 box looks a lot like its predecessor though there is a dash of colour now in the form of orange stands for the box
    Hardware hasn’t been one of India’s strong points. There are very few hardware products that come to my mind which can be termed as good designs out of India. However, my shortlist certainly has a place for a small black box called the Amkette EvoTV. In fact, this is one of the few devices that I ended up buying soon after the review. Three years ago it solved two of the biggest problems in my life: How to watch YouTube and downloaded content on my flat, but not so smart, television.
    Now there is a new version of the EvoTV. It is called the EvoTV 2, but is not really the second version as Amkette launched two specific use versions in between.
