Before the 90's dot com bubble and years before blogs were even called blogs, it was 1998 and I found myself spending countless hours playing with computer hardware and on the web. I decided to create a website about PCs and technology. One thing led to another, and after years of hard work, thousands of articles, and millions of visitors later, TechSpot evolved into what it is today: one the premier tech enthusiast destinations online. On a more personal note, I hold a Master's degree in Management Information Systems. When I'm not working on TS, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, family, and close friends as well as traveling on occasion. Other topics that constantly grab my attention include politics, business, sports and architectural design.

There are wildly differing viewpoints on whether or not the tablet is on its way out, as you might guess. One perspective is that of the smartphone taking over what the tablet does; which is basically content consumption and creation,...
Above everything else, Grand Theft Auto V is a game about scope. Sure, the land mass in GTA V is three-and-a-half times the size of Red Dead Redemption alone. In fact, it’s bigger than Red Dead Redemption, GTA IV and...

Simulating the physics of water has always been tricky and game engines sometimes still have to use dodgy mechanics to make it feel real. But the above demonstration of this new fluid simulation technique proves that slowly but surely we're...
Game developers have been stuck with DirectX 9 and 2GB of memory for the past decade. While this hasn’t harmed first person shooters (they only have to manage a handful of objects at once), it has been poisonous to other...
All the signs were there, hence the years of rumors about a potential "Facebook phone". But as it turns out Facebook didn't delve into hardware or even as deep as developing a new mobile operating system. Instead, the company is...
