The answer is yes.
Can an inexpensive gaming PC compete with an Xbox One or PlayStation 4?

Google Play Movies Issue

For the past couple weeks whenever I play a movie with the #Chromecast it always starts over and never continues where I left off.

As someone with a 1 year old stopping and continuing movies at a later date has become a common practice thus making Google Play Movies extremely irritating to use.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I did a factory reset on the chromecast and it seems to have fixed the issue. Wish I thought about it sooner.

AWESOME! This is the one app that I thought would never come to #Chromecast. All the major services I wanted on Chromecast are now finally present. Hopefully the update will be available by 1pm EST for the #BlueJays game.

New Icons Coming to Android

Why is Google Play Movies purple? Google Play Newsstands is currently purple. Maybe they're swapping colours, but Newsstands is not shown here. Also what's with the colour change in the Google Play logo. It's currently Green, Blue, Red & Orange. Corresponding with Apps, Books, Movies & Music. The new icon is Blue, Purple & Green.
Included in Android's design guidelines is a section regarding iconography. The guidelines give very specific instructions on how to design a launcher icon... by Liam Spradlin in Android OS, Exclusives, Google, News, Rumors

Awesome news. I'm looking forward to getting some more content in #Titanfall . I should be prestige 4 or 5 by then and definitely craving some new experiences.

CNET: Apple driving move to 64-bit mobile processors, TSMC says.

64 bit processors are inevitable Apple or not. A 32-bit CPU can only address 3.5GB of memory. With the Galaxy Note 3 and other top of the line phones running 3GB they're forced to make the move sooner rather than later.

Let's be honest and point out that Apple went 64-bit for mostly marketing purposes. And it that sense they may have a point in that Apples competitors will want 64-bit to take that marketing advantage away.

But let's not not pretend that releasing a 64-bit Arm chip is somehow innovative.

MLB At Bat

So here I was waiting for the app to update to add #Chromecast support and instead they just silently turned the feature on in the app that was updated several days ago.

Glad I checked as the #BlueJays game starts in 30.

Google's Camera app is now in the Play Store

I've been waiting for this to hit the Play store for quite a while.

But the reviews so far a ridiculous. I can see why some developers pay no attention to them. For those wondering 'where is the rest of my photo' you have it so completely wrong.

The Nexus camera does not take wide screen images so black bars are needed to properly frame your shot. The old camera app cropped the image to fit the screen during preview so the final image you got was different than what you saw.

This is a good update.

Awesome, I've been waiting for this. But I kinda miss the blue picture button and red video record button.

Glass is the loom of the 21st century Luddite. 

I think it's ridiculous that this journalist gets assaulted and his $1,500 property stolen and destroyed and then -- too PC for me -- works hard to "understand." 

This is going too far, San Francisco.
