Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Sony has unveiled the PS3’s Six-Axis Bluetooth motion sensing controller. After some hands-on, wires-off time with WarHawk, it looks like this tech just might go the way of the Rumble Pack.

Now that the old Batarang controller has gleefully been blipped back to the dark Photoshop void from whence it came, the new Nullshock PS3 pad handles as naturally as a paint brush.

However, it does take some decently-sized strokes to match your aircraft to your desire.

Treading the laser-thin line between digital and analog, the Six-Axis sensor works in defined portions; so adjusting your aircraft’s pitch when turning tight corridors will, at first, visually jump like a racing game tapped on a D-pad. Then in about 30 seconds your brain rewires itself, instantly morphing the analog stick into a caveman’s club.

Yes, it's awesome.

You’ll hit the skies flying and adapt to landing just the right approach vector with your WarHawk people eater, instead of adjusting your twitchy wrists by the nanometer all the time. It’s much steadier than attending Caffeinated Anonymous meetings just so you can leet at your soon-to-be favorite games, which WarHawk is shaping up to be for launch, largely in thanks to this sweet cockpit control interface.
