These are impressive on all sorts of levels, they are up there with computers that were out 2 to 3 years ago. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Preliminary Results At this point the iPhone release cycle is pretty well understood. One year, Apple releases the design refresh that changes the external design significantly while generally focusing on evolving the internal components. The year after, the S variant is released with the same design as the previous year, but with sweeping changes to the internals. This cycle of upgrades allows Apple to focus on updating one half of the iPhone at a time while essentially giving their teams a more comfortable two years to develop their next generation technologies. The iPhone 6s fits into this model quite well, with the introduction of new features like 3D Touch and a 12MP camera that supports 4K video recording. However, it’s often difficult to understand exactly how much has changed with an S model as Apple tends to focus on high level features, this despite the fact that so many of the changes in an S model are at a low level. While I haven’t had a lot of time with the iPhone 6s yet, I wanted to share some of the first results that I’ve acquired over the course of testing the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus in the past few days.
In retrospect, one of the reasons I stopped playing GW2 was lack of a dedicated healer. It looks like the new Ranger Elite Specialization may actually be a dedicated "healer" class. What do you all think? Original article here.
***Welcome, friends, to the reveal of the ranger elite specialization, the druid! As a longtime ally of nature, the ranger can now channel the strength of Tyria itself after tapping into the primal forces of the Maguuma jungle. Speak Softly Carrying their staff into battle, the druid bears the duty of sustaining their allies through overwhelming danger. To achieve this aim, each staff skill can be beneficially used to bolster the druid’s allies. Solar Beam: Fire a concentrated beam of light, damaging the targeted foe and healing allies inside of the beam. Astral Wisp: Send a wisp to attach to your foe. While attached it will circle the foe, healing allies it passes through. Ancestral Grace: Become a wisp of natural energy, traversing to the target location. When you reach the target, heal nearby allies. Vine Surge: Send forth vines that immobilize enemies and cleanse conditions from allies. Sublime Conversion: Summon an energy barrier that causes enemy projectiles to heal upon impact. The druid’s staff offers solid support through smart positioning and grants the tools to be in the right place at the right time. Closer to the Stars The druid elite specialization grants a ranger the capacity to draw astral force to themselves. Once it’s fully charged, they can release that force and become a celestial avatar. While in this empowered...
This article specifically talks about one journalist's experiences with Dota 2, yet the concepts presented apply to any competitive game. It's worth a read! I highlighted some of my favorite parts. Source article here.
***When we launched PC Gamer Pro last week, I started a couple of new regular Dota 2 features. Game Is Hard, which runs every Tuesday, is an advice column where I round up emails from readers and put the questions they ask to a personality from the scene, like PyrionFlax. It takes effort to write an email and I'm grateful for every one that I receive, but in this week's column I want to discuss a theme I've seen repeated across dozens of emails in the last week: blame, and the dispensing thereof. This is a problem that exists in every type of competitive game. It's impossible to play Dota for any amount of time and not experience finger-pointing: whether that means being blamed for something or feeling the urge to yell at somebody else. Dota places you in a stressful, complex and codependent relationship your teammates, who will often be strangers—it's inevitable that people will sometimes lash out to make themselves feel better. It's irrational, and it makes you a worse player overall, but as a knee-jerk emotional response it makes sense in the heat of the moment. I know I've done it. The urge to blame others becomes a more serious problem, I think, when it becomes a part of your thinking outside of the game itself. In order to account for a run of losses or an overall dissatisfaction with their matchmaking rating, players spin worldviews for themselves that place all of the blame...

For all its rough and rugged mystique, masculinity can be the most vulnerable of traits. Forged by the knuckle-worn fists thumping hard against Homosapien chests, and honed to a fine sheen in the gladiator bathhouses of ancient Rome, the fragile male ego is now under threat by the greatest force the world has ever known: the rose gold iPhone. Just look at that pretty pink hue, boys. You crave the newest color on the newest model of the world’s most popular phone but can’t stop thinking "pink is for girls" or "pink is gay." You hate yourself for wanting it, and you’re scared; what will people think if you pre-order a bigger better rose gold iPhone 6S Plus to 3D Touch late at night? How will the guys respond when they see you Apple Pay a round of beers with it at the ballpark? Cautiously you extend a leg, plié, and dip your pointed toe into the hostile waters of Twitter to find out lol. So, chill. If you like the pink iPhone then buy the pink iPhone. Hell, buy two. Nobody cares but you. It’s then that you see that your fears were unfounded. Sure, some responses are laced with a homophobic taint (this is Twitter, after all) but they’re the fringe, the homophobes are now the minority. Mostly, nobody cares — nobody but the insecure men who crave a pink object. In fact, searching Twitter for "rose gold gay" or the more hateful "rose gold fag" reveals an overwhelmingly staunch defense for the color pink against any kind of sexual orientation, even though relatively few people were making those accusations in the first place.

I have been running the same setup for hand held camera support systems for a few years now. I figured, hey if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Oh boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong. To me it is extremely important to have a hand strap for my camera, I rarely have the “Canon Strap” around my neck and have very steady hands so I just need something to attach that camera to my hand without any fear of it losing its grip. So I bought a cheap Amazon hand strap and stuck it over the normal Canon neck strap, just to have the option to hang it around my neck during breaks. Problem is breaks are supposed to give you a… wait for it… break. My neck was telling me a different story. Especially for on location shoots, behind the scenes, and other shoots that I could be lifting my camera up to my face more than 1000 times in a 15 hour day. Also my hand strap had a tendency to cut into my hand too roughly. But what did I expect for a few bucks… But come on I use these things constantly why hadn’t I invested?!?!
Well let me tell you about my new setup and why I think this system is pretty much my last stop shop for camera support from now on...
Not only are these made out of quality materials and sturdy as all getup, they provide a comfort level with their cushy neoprene padding with binding. When this thing goes around my hand or my shoulder, I can feel the grip holding it...
So you are here because you too LOVE PINK?!
Ok maybe not... but you wanna win a free kick ass Redhead Windscreen! SWEET! Well here is how you can do that:
Summary: Kalani from Redheadwindscreens.com and Tristan from Alttabme.com have come together to share with you the love of Redheads! A lot of people think Redheads are only for audiophiles, professional "sound people", or filmmakers. Well we are here to tell you THAT IS JUST NOT THE CASE! I have been recommending these to all my gamer friends for a long time because I wear a really high end set of cans(headphones) and I like to communicate via teamspeak, ventrillo, mumble... etc when I am playing with them. Problem is, we all like low electricity bills or just have an unspoken love of box fans... well let me tell you something, the horrid noise that a fan blowing air into a microphone makes is enough to make my ears bleed. This solves that problem! (THANK YOU EAR GODS!) Not to mention they can be customized to fit every kind of microphone including headsets! Anyway here is a video tell you allllll about it:
Well isn't that something haha. Here are the official Participation rules, good luck, and we look forward to seeing what names you come up with.(make sure to check the redheadwindscreens.com website to see what some of the other colors are called!) You have a chance to write REDHEAD HISTORY!!! Participation Rules:
- Post below a NAME for the one and only PINK Redhead.
As we all know if you are a heavy user of your phone, especially an iPhone, the number one problem that plagues them is BATTERY. For the longest time I have had a battery backup I carried with me made by APC(the people who make the backups for computers in case of a power outage), unfortunately they discontinued it. Plus it only charged my phone one and a half times from 0. While this sounds like a significant amount for the usage I get out of my phone living in NYC and constantly on the move with my photography business, I am not often by an outlet and have had my phone die many many times, which makes it difficult to coordinate the next shoot or people I am meeting with. The Product: So I went searching for a replacement. I ran across Anker products. They had batteries from 8000 mAh all the way to 20,000. I was trying to find a happy middle ground between portability and power. I was turned onto the Anker 2nd Gen Astro3 because of it’s high capacity of 12,000 mAh and it’s smaller size(about the size of two iPhone 5’s stacked). Easy to put in my camera bag, but especially awesome because it has 3 USB ports that have PowerIQ charging capabilities.This means an extremely fast charge which is important if you can’t be tethered to your battery pack or just need a quick boost. Well Anker was kind enough to...
