Opinions on the Nexus 6

Source: Google Play
After last week's reveal of the next set of Nexus devices for the following year, I've taken some time to gather some thoughts and opinions on the Nexus 6 smartphone. Those close to me (online via IRC and in real life) knew that I would be keeping an eye on this smartphone, because I really am quite due for a device upgrade.

The reasons for why I need a device upgrade are already well known. I have a Android 2.3 device from LG, and I really do need an upgrade. Not only is the CPU very slow, but there's no space on it either. Now more than ever have I been looking keenly on new devices. I narrowed down my choices down to the OnePlus One or Nexus 6.

Minecraft's European PlayStation Vita Release Date Announced

It was far from an easy road to get the game to this point, but 4J Studios has finally made it happen!

The news of the release date comes just after the second, known attempt to pass through Sony's Quality Assurance testing was completed.

Given the length of time that had gone by since it was announced to be in QA, roughly two weeks, many had begun to wonder if it had failed again.

No need to fear now though, as it will be coming:

So, my laptop died (short story included)

Instead of being the normal opinion-based post or the like, this is going to be some storytelling. This is going to be a short story about the PC I've been using for the past few years, since 2005 anyways. If you aren't much for stories, than go ahead and skip this post. This blog post isn't for you.

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

Introduction

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.

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.
