Nexus 9 hands-on review: The iPad challenger
January 31, 2015
It teased us long enough before it finally made its way to Indian shores. The Nexus 9 is not just aiming to be the premier tablet on planet Android, but would like us to believe that it's the finest tablet out there. It lands exactly in between the iPad Mini and the iPad Air 2, with its 8.9-inch screen, and is the slightly overdue Google flagship tablet that eclipses the somewhat dated Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. The HTC Nexus 9 is also the tablet that was probably designed to show off Android's latest iteration - Android 5.0, a.k.a. Lollipop.

Leaked Nvidia driver offers taste of mobile G-Sync
January 30, 2015
Earlier this week, news surfaced of a leaked Nvidia driver that could supposedly enable G-Sync on any mobile or desktop display. The author used this driver to argue that Nvidia's GeForce was nothing but a DRM scam, and that the Altera Arria V FPGA inside the G-Sync module was nothing but a DRM mechanism designed to ensure that G-Sync was limited to Nvidia-approved monitors and video cards. Gamenab's various claims run the gamut from flatly incorrect to highly dubious, but there is a kernel of accuracy to them - specifically, the driver the website leaked does enable an early version of G-Sync support on at least one laptop. Gamenab makes a number of inflammatory accusations concerning G-Sync support. According to the site, G-Sync is "a kind of DRM component protection," CUDA "was made to force the developers to work on an Nvidia GPU," and the Altera FPGA inside the G-Sync module "does nothing else than confirm that the module is right here."
