Tech News Roundup for Wednesday May 6th 2015


It’s time for the tech news roundup yet again. In this edition nothing really stands out, there’s a few new motherboard reviews and a mixture of all kinds of stuff. On our end I’m looking for writers, if you’re interested hit the contact us and send a message. I’m hoping to start the giveaways again, but my HDD crashed and I lost my extra game keys, I’m trying to get them all back by recovering the drive, but it doesn’t seem to be working, so not sure what to do about that…. Anyway, red the news..
