Xbox One vs PlayStation 4: Which controller is better?

For years people have been telling me that relations, love and happiness are the important things in life…These days I realise that I’m able to take or leave all that so long as We have this earpiece in the world.

As the new consoles from Microsoft and Sony go head to head on the high street, gamers are getting their hands on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers for the first time.
Both companies have spent tens of thousands of dollars in researching and designing the shape, features and feel of their pads.
After all, if the lifespan of the last generation is anything to go by, people will still be using them in a decade.
But which pad comes out on top?

PlayStation 4At first glance Sony’s new pad looks similar to the previous generation’s DualShock 3 controller. A closer look reveals it’s slightly wider, with a curvier shape.
The new L2 and R2 buttons feel more like triggers, and Select and Start have given way to by Share and Option buttons.
All new features include the light bar, which can change colour to tell you which player you are in a multiplayer game, or as a health indicator. It also has an internal speaker, a headset socket and a touch pad which doubles as a clickable button.
Xbox OneThe new controller from Microsoft is very much an evolution of the Xbox 360 pad, taking the best bits of the previous design and honing them. All the older controller’s buttons are present, and only the guide button has moved significantly.
The biggest change is that instead of having a bulky battery pack attached to the back of the controller, two AA batteries sit snugly within the body of the pad. As a result, the contour of the rear of the pad is a single, smooth curve.
ReactionSo how have the gaming public reacted to the new pads?
Jay Budd, commenting on YouTube said “I like the Xbox One controller. Wasn’t a fan of the thumb sticks at first, but got used to it after an hour or so.”
Microsoft have drawn criticism for using their own connector for headsets.
The console comes with one, but if you want another you’ll have to shell out about £25 for Microsoft’s official Xbox One chat headset – for now at least.
Sony, on the other hand, have included a standard 3.5mm headphones jack, so any standard headset – such as Apple’s iPhone Earpods – will work.
YouTube user Neo Jeeto took issue with some of the new features of both controllers, saying: “I hate the Share and Option buttons, and the rougher grip texture on the [DualShock 4], but I like the sticks and triggers.
“I don’t like the triggers or bumpers on the Xbox One controller, but I like the sticks better than the 360.”
It’ll take time for many hardened gamers to decide which of the two pads is their favourite, but Timothy J Seppala, a contributing editor at tech blog Engadget has made up his mind already.
@adanzis the ps4 controller is the best one I’ve ever used. No lie.

PS4 Headset Companion App Now Available

So to carry on my run of posts on this blog, Ive decided to share one of my favourite articles this week. I used to be cautious to add it to this website as I actually did not wish to offend the original writer, but I trust he/she is glad that I enjoyed reading their article and planned to share it with my readers.

For those of you with Pulse Wireless Headsets, heres a bit of good news. The companion app, that lets you set different audio profiles for different games, is now available for PlayStation 4.

You can grab it from the web store here and start tinkering to your hearts content. Unfortunately, PlayStation fans in the UK still cant buy the new 7.1 surround Gold headset that Sony is confusingly calling Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0?. That was advertised as being out yesterday but weve been unable to find any UK retailer stocking it and weve heard no further news of it from Sony. It is available in other regions though, so maybe its just having trouble getting through the floods.

The companion app is totally free, as you would expect, and it also works with the GTA V branded Pulse units. Currently it has audio settings for game, music, movie, shooter, fighting, techno, hip-hop, action and horror with more promised soon. You can also can expect to see specific audio settings designed to get the absolute best from upcoming PlayStation games. Those should arrive around the same time as the games they cater for and will be visible within the app itself.

If you loved this post and you would certainly like to get even more details regarding Motorola Headsets kindly see our own web page.

A smartwatch for your head

radio accessory switched 12v+ wireA smartwatch for your… head?
I don’t know if you came here because you read it on social media, twitter, facebook, google +, stumble upon or somewhere else. But thank you for coming and I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did.

Pitched somewhere between a Bluetooth hands-free headset and a wrist-worn notification and apps centre, the device has just hit Indiegogo looking to secure $300 000 in funding.

Its Portuguese creators claim that the device offers a totally new way of interacting with a smartphone, but anyone who attended the Mobile World Congress in February will note the similarities between the HeadWatch and the Huawei TalkBand B1.

The TalkBand is essentially a fitness tracker band that has a pull-out earpiece for making phone calls. And while the HeadWatch offers the same functionality, it does so in a different way.

The whole watch face detaches from the strap and can be clipped on to the ear in order to make hands-free calls and when worn as a standard smartwatch, it is focused on being a second screen for a smartphone, rather than competing with the likes of the Jawbone Up and Nike Fuel Band.

It has a colour touchscreen and uses Android as an operating system but should also pair with the iPhone. Embedded coloured light strips above and below the watch face illuminate when there’s a new notification and, rather than being packed with motion and tracking sensors, the device only offers a temperature sensor and accelerometer, but should be water resistant to a depth of at least one metre.

The HeadWatch is attempting to address an issue that the current crop of smartwatches face. How can they be used discreetly for making and receiving voice calls? The majority of devices with this functionality already on the market ether require the user to talk into them like Dick Tracy or, like Qualcomm’s Toq, to pair the device with a Bluetooth earpiece, meaning that users need to carry two gadgets plus a smartphone with them wherever they go. Not the ideal situation.

Whether or not the HeadWatch’s novel solution to this problem will entice potential backers remains to be seen – $300 000 is a large amount to source via a crowd-funding site and, according to the company’s projected timeline, it doesn’t expect to ship finished devices to its initial backers until mid-2015.

This suggests that the development and testing process still has some way to go. Still, it is offering early-bird backers the chance to snap one up for $169 (plus $15 in shipping charges) rather than $199.

Iron-Man earpiece and smartwatch unveiled

Iron-Man earpiece and smartwatch unveiled
The basis of the post is to make you consider what in life is important and what does getting the new radio accessory really mean to people

This week we get closer to the Iron Man dream with Intels Jarvis technology, enjoy extended music streaming from Spotify, learn of Samsungs 2014 plans and report the announcement of two new exciting gadgets.

CUTTING EDGE: Intel Releases Their Smart Earpiece Jarvis

Well you Iron Man fans will be happy as Intel has just introduced Jarvis, their smart earpiece designed to rival Apples Siri and Google Now.

Jarvis performs commands that can be carried out by your phone, it can even make suggestions and interrupt you with relevant information you might want to know.

What might be slightly disheartening to you die-hard Iron Man fans though is that Jarvis actually speaks with a female voice not that of Paul BettanyStill, Intel provided a live demonstration of the product at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

On request, it recommended a restaurant, arranged a call to make a reservation and even re-scheduled calendar events. Of course, digital assistants are nothing new; Siri in particular has been with us for some time now.

However, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich believes the competition cannot yet match the conversational and hands-free elements of Jarvis. It is always-listening and can seamlessly integrate with your calendar, interrupting politely with the information you need.

APPLE: Spotify Introduces Free Shuffle-play Feature for iOS

The music streaming service Spotify has recently unveiled an update for its iOS app that allows users to play an artists whole music catalogue without a paid subscription.

The limitation is that this can only be done through shuffle mode but now all user and Spotify created playlists can be listened to as well.

Advertisements will still play every now and then, which is to be expected but on iPad, users can listen to any song at any time, without the shuffle-play limitation.

It had previously been the case that Spotify users must pay a subscription to stream music on their mobile devices as per the companys licensing agreements with music labels.

However, recent pressure from the ever-growing US service Pandora and Apples iTunes Radio has caused the Swedish company to make changes as it struggles to maintain market share.

It would be a shame to see Spotify fall behind its rivals; it offers a fairly comprehensive music catalogue and its iOS apps for both iPhone and iPad are slick and intuitive. This recent change is a definitely a step in the right direction.

ANDROID: Samsung Unveils its Plans for 2014

In an interview with Bloomberg News, Samsung has outlined its plans for various Android devices to be released this year.

The biggest revelation is that the Galaxy S5 may come out as soon as April, potentially with new iris-scanning technology in response to Apples fingerprint reader on the iPhone 5S.

Samsungs Galaxy S range has long been considered their flagship so its good to see they might be pushing some technological boundaries here.

Samsungs mobile executive Vice President Lee Young-Hee also revealed that the Galaxy Gear smartwatch is set for a makeover, improving on the somewhat bulky design of the original and increasing its functionality.

Finally, the Note 4 might emerge in the second half of 2014 with a three-sided display to allow for multiple viewing angles.

That could really be something to see, excuse the pun Lee went on to say that significant improvements will be made to their flagship Galaxy S5 after a somewhat lacklustre consumer response to its predecessor.

As a result, Samsung will be going back to basics focusing on hardware, screen and the overall feel of the phone. It has been rumoured that we may see an overhaul of Samsungs user interface as well.

Previous iterations of its Android based Touchwiz UI have not always been well-received so it would be good to see some improvement. This hasnt been confirmed yet so fingers crossed for now.

GADGETS: Pebble Steel High-end Smartwatch Announced

If you cast your minds back you might remember us writing about the Pebble smartwatch, arguably one of the better wearable tech pieces of last year.

Well now they have stepped into the high-end market with the introduction of the Pebble Steel. It will be available in both a brushed stainless steel and matte black finish with the choice of a matching or leather strap.

The Steel also uses Corning gorilla glass to protect its face, which should make it quite durable. If this wasnt enough, it even gets a brand new Pebble app-store with six main categories: daily, fitness, remotes, tools and utilities, notifications and games.

The addition of a dedicated app-store means developers no longer need to rely on the iOS notification centre to relay information so can create a smoother user experience.

If you have the original Pebble, dont worry you wont be missing out as a firmware update is due to allow you use of the new app store as well.

However, if you dont yet have a smartwatch, the Steel retails for $249 over at getpebble.com with pre-orders shipping globally from January 28th.

GAMING: SteelSeries Unveil the Stratus Bluetooth Gaming Controller

Gaming peripheral creator SteelSeries has recently unveiled its new Bluetooth gaming controller the Stratus.

The new product is MFI-certified, which means it has been signed off to work with all Apple devices.

It differs from the competition by acting as a standalone controller and uses Apples extended control layout featuring: a directional pad, four action buttons, four shoulder buttons and dual analog sticks.

The Stratus has a built-in battery providing around ten hours of game time from a full charge and can be topped-up by USB charging in just two hours.

Up to four Stratus controllers can be connected to a single iOS device at once, with LED lights showing which controller is which.

This rather exciting new device can be purchased in a not quite so thrilling choice of black or white colours and is available for pre-order from the companys website.

It costs just under 85 and is set to ship on March 2nd.

How Does Noise Cancellation Work?

My basic review of the new radio accessory it begins well, looks pretty cool, is easy to run and very power efficient, the earpiece is a excellent product. I’m happy I purchased it, read further underneath.

If you’ve walked down any street, anywhere in the United Kingdom, at any point in the last decade, you’ll know that the Britain of the early 21st Century is noisy, crowded and busy.

People shuttle past you with headphones on, mobile phones in front of their faces and sometimes, seemingly talking to themselves (until you notice the Bluetooth headset). Many is the time I’ve heard somebody talking and turned around to address them, only to see that they aren’t talking to me at all. There are more cars on the road and there are more roads for the cars to drive on. Yes, this country is a busy place and sometimes you want to just shut it all out.

You might be trying to hear a client’s requests on your hands free headset, or you might just want to forget everything else around you and listen to music. For these reasons (and a few more) noise cancelling headsets are growing in popularity at an alarming rate. In fact, they are a great invention, and a necessary one.

But how does such wondrous technology work?

Well, to put it simply, there are two forms of noise cancelling headsets. The first is pretty basic. Standard noise cancellation occurs whenever you put anything in (or over) your ears. In fact, this simple fact is only really utilized by the design of the headphones themselves. If they cover your ears, or block them with ear buds, then you are achieving basic noise cancellation. We’ll call that ‘passive’ noise cancellation.

The second type, we’ll call ‘active’ noise cancellation. With this type, a special technology is used. Active noise cancelling headsets generate a field of white noise around the ear, which acts as something of a vacuum and drowns out pretty much any noise around the wearer. These noise cancelling headsets are useful and they work a treat if you happen to live near any road works.

There is, of course, a downside. With some noise cancelling headsets, you actually have a hard time hearing, well, anything at all. This is fine when the ambient sound is limited to kids playing chavvy music on their phones, or else uppity couples arguing (so violently that you suspect ‘The Jeremy Kyle Show’ might be holding secret auditions somewhere) and noisy delivery lorries trundling past, but it can be a bit of a downer when you don’t hear oncoming cars, or phrases like “Ow! You stepped on my foot!”

So that’s how it works.
