Microsoft’s newest wearable is called Microsoft Band, the same name as last year’s activity-tracker. […]

No more serifs, same bright colours: Google new identity

Google has just launched a new visual identity and redesign of its multicoloured logo. At the time of writing the new logo is shown on the Google homepage being drawn by an animated hand.

This sportswear peels away when you’re hot and sweaty

The latest Pebble looks a touch different from previous models of the smartwatch. Instead of a square screen with rounded edges, it bears a circular watch face.

Super Mario Maker Review

I am not a good game designer, but I knew that before playing Super Mario Maker. In other games with a built-in “creator” mode, like LittleBigPlanet, I would just ignore the creation aspect and focus on playing.
