A thermal module less than half a millimeter in thickness. No fans. Thinner. Lighter. That's the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix for you. It's been a few months since the Helix convertible tablet was refreshed with Intel's Broadwell processor, otherwise known as Core M (the same processor used in Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro), and the benefit is that it runs cooler than ever. So cool it might not even need a fan.

Tales from the Borderlands is a brand-new episodic adventure game set within the Borderlands universe. A collaboration between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software, Tales is the most story-driven Borderlands game yet. Players can grab the episodes individually as they are released, or opt for a season pass to get all five episodes for a little cheaper. The first episode is already available on Xbox One and Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and 4, and PC and Mac, with the Android and iOS versions sometime thereafter.

To celebrate the launch of Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games recently held a premiere event at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Richardson (Dallas), TX. This marks the first time a game has debuted at the renowned movie theater chain, and we were lucky enough to attend. Read on for my impressions of the Tales from the Borderlands Episode 1: Zero Sum reveal event and the game itself!

Celkon Mobiles, the Indian smartphone vendor, has finally put their first Windows Phone device – the Celkon Win 400 - up for sale. While there hasn't been a formal announcement or a press release, the device is now available for sale on Snapdeal.com, a leading online retailer in the country.

Priced at ₹4,999 ($80), the Celkon Win 400 is the cheapest Windows Phone device. That makes it a great entry level Windows Phone device to counter the cheap Androids in the market, but the phone sports modest specifications as one would expect.
