GTA V Mod Makes The Game Look Even More Spectacular

Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V is a beautiful looking game. However if you wished that maybe it looked better and more realistic, you might be interested to learn about a GTA V mod that calls itself The Pinnacle of GTA V World Enhancement Project, which as you can see in the video above will take your gameplay experience to whole new levels.

Mods for GTA games are pretty common and in the past we have seen how some mods have turned older GTA titles, like GTA 4, into a next-gen game. There are also some mods that exist for GTA V that offers up a similar experience, but if you like what you see here then maybe The Pinnacle mod might be a better option for you, or at the very least you’ll have some options to choose from.

So what is in the mod? Basically this mod covers pretty much all aspects of the game. This includes rebalancing the color of the game, a redone weather system, photorealistic rain and puddles, better reflections, shadows, collision, physics, grass, plants, lighting and wind effects, and more. There is also modification made to vehicle handling.

Even the interaction you have with NPCs in the game have been reworked to be more realistic, so in essence what you are getting here can only be described as a brand new game. The mod is a free download so if you’d like to get your hands on it, head on over to its website for the details.

WhatsApp For Android Appears To Be Blocking Telegram Links

whatsapp_blockWhatsApp is probably one of the largest instant messenger apps available right now. There are plenty of other apps out there like LINE, KakaoTalk, Skype, Snapchat, and more, but safe to say not many of them are enjoying the same monthly active users that WhatsApp is experiencing.

However could it be a bug or could it be for competitive purposes that WhatsApp is blocking Telegram links on its Android app? According to reports on Reddit, it seems that when it comes to WhatsApp for Android, links to Telegram are being blocked as you can see in the screenshot.

As you can also see, the link to YouTube works just fine. It should be noted that this only seems to affect the Android version of WhatsApp as the iOS version is allowing the links just fine. Like we said it could probably be a bug that is causing the links to not show up.

This has happened in the past due to algorithms it uses in which it attempts to detect if certain links are spam and blocks them, like they have accidentally done so in the past with links to Imgur. In any case hopefully this is something that the developers are looking into and a fix will be issued soon.

This Super Mario Watch Can Be Yours For $18,950

Romain-Jerome-Super-Mario-Bros-watchWhen it comes to watches, really good mechanical timepieces will set you back a small fortune, but most of the time this can be justified as the majority of these timepieces are considered to be investments that could last generations, as long as they are properly maintained.

We have also seen novelty watches that are made around movies, games, TV shows, cartoons, and etc., and these watches usually cost a couple of bucks and not more. However it seems that to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros. game, Nintendo has teamed up with luxury watchmaker Romain Jerome to create a very special timepiece.

This is a Super Mario watch and it is a limited edition device. There will only be 85 pieces that will be made and each will cost a little under $19,000 ($18,950 to be exact) to own, so safe to say you’ve either got to be a huge (and loaded) fan to get your hands on it, or if you are a watch collector who believes that this could be worth an even greater fortune some day.

The watch will feature icons from the game, like Mario himself, a mushroom, and some background scenery. They are also made from enamel and are all hand painted, so safe to say that you can expect from good quality craftsmanship.

Crazy Video Shows Plane Taking Off from One of the Most Dangerouns Runways at Courchevel Altiport
Most Dangerous Runway

One of the world's most dangerous runways is located at Courchevel Altiport, which is part of a ski resort in the French Alps. The airfield has a very short runway that measures only 1,736-feet in length, with a gradient of 18.6%. There is no go-around procedure for landings at Courchevel, due to the surrounding mountainous terrain. De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otters and DHC-7 Dash 7 turboprops served the airport in the past; however, the airfield primarily sees smaller fixed-wing aircraft such as Cessnas as well as helicopters at present.

Nexus 7 (2016) Could Be Made By Huawei [Rumor]

nexus-7-2-review--020This year marks the first time that Chinese company Huawei has made a Nexus handset for Google in the form of the Nexus 6P. However could the company be planning more Nexus-branded devices with Google? If you are a fan of Huawei and the products that they have made, then you might be pleased to learn that there could be a new Huawei Nexus device in the works.

According to the rumors, it seems to have been suggested that 2016’s Nexus 7 tablet could indeed be made by Huawei. So far there have been two Nexus 7 tablets released to date. One back in 2012, and another in 2013, both of which were made by ASUS. However the lack of a refresh in 2014 or 2015 seems to suggest that maybe Google might not be interested in the 7-inch form factor anymore.

However if anything this rumor suggests that Google could be planning a new Nexus 7 tablet for next year, with Huawei helming the ship. Unfortunately the specs and features of the alleged Nexus 7 (2016) is still a mystery, but the rumor claims that Google will most likely announce the device at Google I/O 2016, which we guess would make perfect sense.

Given Huawei’s choice to go with premium materials for the Nexus 6P, we have to wonder if this will apply to the Nexus 7 (2016). Either way take it with a grain of salt for now, but if a 7-inch tablet is what you’re after and you want a stock Android experience, maybe you could try holding out until 2016.
