Join Gizmag, as we break down some of the top iPhone and iPad games of 2013.  Read More

If wearable computing really is the next big thing, then will the future look more like Google Glass or an iWatch?

Gizmag begins its journey of exploration with Google Glass

Gizmag reviews Mario's latest adventure on the Wii U, Super Mario 3D World

After several decades, you'd think the Mario franchise would be growing stale. Having started as a few colored pixels in 1981's Donkey Kong, Mario now leaps through fully-realized 3D worlds presented in HD. Yet somehow Nintendo has managed to squeeze the same timeless charm that entranced children of the 80s into today's much more technically-advanced games. Join Gizmag, as we review the plumber's latest adventure on the Wii U, Super Mario 3D World.  Read More
