Since 2012, ROBLOX - the world's largest creative online community - has experienced positively explosive growth. In the past six months alone, it's generated over 13.4 billion page-views and engaged users for 339 million hours. It shows no signs of stopping.

Why Razer Synapse 2.0 Still Isn't Worth The Effort

KIXEYE Australia Launches VEGA Conflict, a new browser-based MMORTS

Earlier this month, KIXEYE launched Vega Conflict, a new, open-world (or rather, open-galaxy) browser-based sci-fi RTS. I had the opportunity to sit down with some of the fine folks from KIXEYE's Australia studio for an interview about the studio, the game, and the future.

The Giant Coffee Table Touchscreen Computer Costs A Whopping $7,000

If you're a tech geek with a penchant for waving around how much money you've got, have I ever found the product for you: it's a fully-functional, 32'' touchscreen computer built directly into the surface of a coffee table. It's also better than some people's desktops.

Microsoft Details Plans For Independent Developers On The Xbox One

Among the many other announcements dropped by Microsoft at this year's Gamescom 2013, the Richmond-based studio detailed its plans for the Xbox One's Independent Games Program. It's called ID@Xbox, and it's going to eventually culminate with development kit capability for every Xbox One.

Android Computer-in-a-Projector: The New EPICT EPP-100

Though useful for movie-watching on its own, EPICT's pico-sized, battery-powered EPP-100 has the potential to do quite a bit more on the wall of your choice with an additional peripheral or two. Know the device's persisting limitations before ordering one, though.

Why The Law And The Internet Need To Find Common Ground

We're living in somewhat curious times. See, the birth of the Internet has established something Marshall McLuhan termed "The Global Village." We're closer - and more connected - than we've ever been before. Unfortunately...the law hasn't really kept up with any of that. As a result, we've entered into a strange sort of limbo, where everything seems to be a gray area, and no one's quite certain what law to apply where. This needs to change.
