5 PC games that should be way more popular than they are

In the vast sea of games (opens in new tab) out there, it’s hard to stick out. Everyone wants your time and if a game isn’t part of an established series or isn’t doing something that a trailer or screenshot can capture, they can drift under the radar.

These are the PC games that should have a much bigger presence than they already have, whether it’s because they’re doing something nobody else has done before or because they simply do what they do well. Some games didn’t come out at the right time, were overshadowed by something else, or took a bit to get going.

Below is a list of games that we love from the last five years. Each of them are still playable today so if you want to check them out yourself, you can maybe help them get the recognition they deserve.

LG DualUp review: a tall, pricey monitor geared toward efficiency

There is no shortage of ultrawide monitors, but LG’s 27.6-inch $699 DualUp is the oddball ultratall. It’s a relatively basic USB-C monitor with a unique trick: it’s taller than it is wide, with a 16:18 aspect ratio. In other words, it’s like using two 21.5-inch QHD monitors stacked on top of each other. You aren’t alone if you exhibit an intense swirl of emotions the first time you see the DualUp.

Like a taller phone or laptop display, the DualUp simply lets you see more at once with less scrolling. With just one computer plugged in, I can see more windows set up in a Brady Bunch-like grid arrangement than on a typical widescreen monitor. One DualUp monitor can even replace two separate 16:9 monitors, which is cool. I had the ability to test two DualUps side by side, and reader, I ran out of windows before I could take

Companies In The Computer Mouse Market Are Introducing The

LONDON, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the mouse market, companies in the mouse market are introducing a biometric mouse to improve data security and privacy for the user. A biometric mouse permits only authorized users to control the mouse and access the computer. Protection is accomplished with an integrated fingerprint reader, either in the receiver or the mouse. This feature enhances security and adds convenience because the user can use his fingerprint rather than a password for a secure login. For example, Lenovo, a Hong Kong-based consumer electronics company, produced a Fingerprint Biometric USB Mouse, which offers advanced input functionality with an integrated fingerprint sensor for password-free authentication.

iPhone 13 camera before iPhone 14 launch: Apple and Android keep failing to make real camera phones

Photography, as your parents or grandparents used to know it, is a dying breed.

If 20 years ago the idea of a photograph was to capture an important moment in one’s life as authentically as possible, today we’re living in a different world… Fair enough, not everyone owned a camera in 1980, and phones have managed to make this once unattainable thing very accessible, which is wonderful!

However, as it turns out in 2022, the world is less about authenticity and more about “making everything better” – whatever that’s supposed to mean. Nowadays, photos (amongst other things) are supposed to enhance our reality and make it “cool and fun”. Your baby can have bunny ears, and you can puke rainbows.

But there’s more beyond Snapchat filters that enhance the way your photos look, and it all boils down to something called computational photography. It’s the “hidden filter” that makes … Read More
