Moto Z2 Play Review: A Refined Battery Life Champion Returns
     Fri, Sep 22 2017 | 1:46P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo introduced their Moto Z family last year with high hopes of being something different. The evolution of smartphone design has been more iterative than innovate in recent years from most manufacturers. The Moto Z smartphones, however, offered modularity to allow the phones to adapt to a user’s in-the-moment needs. However, for the most paired down member of Motorola's Moto Z family, the Moto Z Play, the intrigue for many users had little to do with the its Moto Mods functionality and more to do with its seemingly endless battery life. In a world where many flagship phones fade after four or five hours of actual screen-on usage, the first generation Moto Z Play presses on for ten or twelve hours. Now the second generation Moto Z2 Play is here with modest hardware improvements and a slightly scaled-back battery capacity. Is this successor still up to the task of powering through our workday?

The Ultimate RGB Build: The Hardware
     Fri, Sep 22 2017 | 1:45P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So I’ve been using the same PC as my main gaming / video editing rig for what seems like forever. When I built it not much thought really went into it, it was just available parts that I had laying around. The system itself has a Core i7-3970X, ASRock X79 Extreme4-M motherboard, 16GB of DDR3, a GTX 580, which was updated to a GTX 1080 recently, and a few SSDs. All of this was inside the Thermaltake Supressor F31 case, not really much to look at when you walk into the office. To this day that PC still kicks ass and in most cases is more than sufficient, but now that we are doing a lot of 4K video editing I felt it was time for an upgrade. Also we wanted to build something that looked totally badass! That is when the idea for the Ultimate RGB Build was hatched. We’ve said 2017 is the year of RGB so why not build a system with all RGB components? So we’ve compiled a list of awesome components and are ready to get this build started! This is part 1 of the build where we will go over the hardware used and why we selected it."
