Opinion: Is the iOS vs Android battle headed down the same path as Mac vs PC?

Yesterday, well-respected venture capitalist Mary Meeker released her annual Internet Trends Report. Inside the over 200 slide PowerPoint were some interesting numbers relating to the continuing battle between iOS and Android. As we reported last night, Meeker’s report showed iOS continue to decline in marketshare, while Android continues to gain. In many ways, the current split between Android and iOS in terms of market share and unit shipments is very similar to the split between Mac and PC shipments and marketshare. And it’s been a long time coming for Apple.

Windows has finally fixed its awful auto-update system

How to Fix Windows Automatic Updates
Anyone who's used a Windows PC for more than 20 minutes has probably run into the scheduled updater. This evil snippet of code will, on occasion, forcibly restart your PC, no matter how urgent a piece of work might be. In the latest beta version of Windows 10, Microsoft has revealed how it will fix the auto-install with a new feature called "Active Hours." It still doesn't allow you to turn off auto-install -- Microsoft is determined that you stay up to date -- but it does the next best thing.

I love gaming, but I also hate sitting up straight in chairs when I don’t absolutely have to. You’d think a console would be the solution, but really, this dumb-looking keyboard-mouse combo from Razer is the missing link.

‘No Man’s Sky’ is the ultimate role-playing game

No Man's Sky Preview
Having watched every preview video and read every interview on the Internet, I wasn't sure No Man's Sky could do anything to surprise me. On Thursday, I had a chance to play the universe simulator from Hello Games for the very first time, and although I knew what to expect, I came away with a surprising revelation: No Man's Sky has the potential to be the best RPG ever made.

Mac Pro case clone Kickstarter is perfect for your next DIY gold Hackintosh project

Dune Case (Featured Image)

We’ve seen DIY solutions in building a Mac Pro-style Hackintosh out of actual trash cans, but others who aren’t as inclined to follow a DIY route may be excited to hear about the Dune Case. Dune Case is currently running a Kickstarter campaign of its Mac Pro-inspired PC case. The case would allow anyone to get a Mac Pro look at a fraction of the cost at only $189. Boasting a design that helps support airflow, strikingly similar to the Mac Pro, the Dune Case comes in either a black or gold color options.

Even though Boot Camp officially supports Windows 10 on current Mac Pros, a lot of users desire the customization of a PC. The Dune Case gives PC-fans the options they want in customization, while still retaining a sleek form factor. The case utilizes mini-ITX components, has room for two 2.5 HDD, and includes three USB 3.0 ports.

The case is a bit heavy at 5.73 lbs, but that is primarily attributed to its aluminum construction. With a 140mm fan at the top, the Dune Case should keep components cooler than traditionally horizontal-oriented systems. The case is designed in a vertical-orientation, just like the Mac Pro, ensuring hot air is pulled up and out of the case instead of circulating within itself.

Pricing for the case will start at $189 when officially launched, but there are still some slots available for backers who can score it at $169 on Kickstarter.

A Game Disappeared From Steam, And Nobody’s Saying Why

A few weeks ago, a pirate-themed RPG called Vendetta: Curse of Raven’s Cry vanished from the Steam store. At that point, it was surrounded on all sides by (unproven) allegations of fake reviews and shady dealings. Flash forward to now: people still can’t figure out precisely why it disappeared.
