Apple Watch

I love new hardware! The only thing I love more than new hardware is improvements to new hardware. Through I have no doubt that the Apple Watch, through developers and OS updates with prove a most useful tool, as a notification and fitness tracking device, it doesn’t offer any compelling reasons to jump in at this point. I’ll wait until the 2.0 version comes out a year or so from now.

Grand Theft Auto V PC: Version Envy

http://www.rockstargames.com/videoplayer?id=11269&locale=en_us

Update: Rockstar release a video giving us a look at the PC Exclusive Rockstar Editor mode. Perfect for Machinima and stunt reels. Damn you @Rockstar…

I look and the photo above and it just makes me cry. I want to cry for two reasons. One, I want to cry because it represents what happens when art, science, design and technology come together to create digital beauty; truly “art in motion”. And two, I want to cry is because I already purchased this game twice, versions of which span both this and last generation of consoles.

That being said, the PC looks amazing. Full 60 Frames per second, 4K (and beyond) resolution, video capture mode as well as new cars, weapons and modes. You can preload the game now on Steam ahead of the April 14th release.
