Tetris Ultimate is still a busted piece of crap, but Ubisoft are releasing DLC first

By on

You’d think Tetris would be a pretty simple game to develop for current-gen game consoles, and yet, in 2014, Ubisoft shipped a busted piece of crap they ironically call ‘Tetris Ultimate’. Yeah, right. While I’m not sure about the stability of the Xbox One version, on the PS4, the game still crashes upon boot for me, even after their latest patch, requiring me to turn off my network connection to […]

Deezer speaks out: Isn’t worried about Apple Music

By on

As you may have heard, Apple have announced details about their new music streaming service, Apple Music. It’s due to be released on June 30 with a free 3-month trial with plans starting at US$9.99 per month. Personally, I am excited by this as iTunes has a huge catalogue of music, some of which isn’t available on other streaming services like Spotify or Deezer – that’s assuming the entire iTunes […]

Multitasking, Picture in Picture finally comes to the iPad

By on

It has been long-rumoured, but Apple has finally confirmed that the latest version of iOS will bring multitasking to the iPad at its WWDC keynote earlier this morning. There will be three ways to run multiple apps on the iPad – Split View, Slide Over and Picture in Picture. The names pretty much describe what they are.

What if #MadMen was set in #2015 #YOLO

By on

You kids and your damn social media. Yes, Mad Men may have wrapped up its seventh and final season last week, but a fan-made Tumblr page shows the series will live on through modern #brand #integration, in the same vein as other forward-thinking social media accounts like @Seinfeld2000.

Would an Apple Television have an antenna?

By on

Would an Apple Television have an antenna port? I mean, seriously, would it? Wouldn’t a television signal be counterintuitive to Apple’s own digital storefront goals, and wouldn’t it be weird for Apple to make a TV that sucks in content through the old-fashioned airwaves? I’m assuming Apple may have reached this conclusion themselves, judging by a WSJ report saying they’ve cancelled their TV project. Because in the end, how would a […]

FoodGeek: Doritos Roulette Review

By on

There’s nothing worse than guilt walking, and yet it’s an activity I generally partake in at least twice weekly, usually following a binge on some terrible foods. Today, however, I embarked upon a different guilt walk, one that I’ve never really encountered, mainly because, as well as completely devouring an entire packet of Doritos chips, the actual eating itself included its own pain. And that’s because I was eating the […]

Inside Telstra’s $112 million George St Store

By on

While normally TechGeek wouldn’t review a store, I had the opportunity (well, I was walking past) to take a look at the recently revamped “Telstra Discovery Store” better known as the Telstra George St store. Back in late 2014, Telstra spent $112 million dollars revamping the store to turn it into a huge “collaboration space” for Telstra staff and guests. However, there certainly isn’t an absence of technology from the […]
