Is the OnePlus One pre-order system too late?

Source: OnePlus Blog
While talking to a friend on the chat network, I was shown this. This is what OnePlus has decided to do, after months of having an invite system. If you guys haven't taken a look at the blog post, please do so before continuing. I think it's fair to hear their reasoning for why they had a invite system in the first place, and why it was there for so long, among other information.

Table Top Racing Review PlayStation Vita


Table Top Racing is a fun little game that was born on iOS and Android mobile phones, but made its way to the PlayStation Vita where it truly belonged. Table Top Racing was brought to the device by the minds inside of PlayRise Digital’s developers. They are a development team who have been behind over a dozen games on Xbox and PlayStation whose exploits are headlined by Wipeout and Wipeout 2097/XL. Without a doubt, Table Top Racing can bring you and your friends many an hour of enjoyment burning rubber out on the race track.  It’ll run you exactly $7.99 to buy it in the North American PlayStation Store

Moving from RamNode to OVH

Yesterday, I wrote about moving the techmansworld.com domain over to Google Domains. That day, I also made a few other transitions, which were moving my two RamNode VPS' over to OVH's VPS hosting.

Google Domains (Beta) in depth

When Google Domains was announced, it was instantly a hit. It gathered a lot of buzz (and hype) from a lot of people, from the normal army of Google fans, but also IT staff and administrators from all around. Even though it was still in private beta, I signed up for a beta invite.

Now, almost 2 months later, I got that invite.

Nexus 6 hopes and predictions

Well, it's around that time of the year again. You know, that time of the year where the Nexus rumors start to crop up, and everyone gets hyped up for the next Nexus phone release.

Why I think Google Play Services was a good idea, executed very poorly

It's been a while since I've really said anything here on Techman's World that's really in depth on Android. However, lying around in bed at night, I decided to take a look at Google Play Services again.
