Before you go writing the optical drive's obituary, consider the inevitable zombie apocalypse, which among other things will see the demise of cloud servers (somebody has to man those things, after all). You'll be glad you stockpiled your precious data, like photos of loved ones before they turned, on local media. Or, maybe you have a collection of Blu-ray movies. Either way, you can benefit from today's top deal for an LG 14X Black Blu-ray Burner for $60 with free shipping (nomrally $80 - use coupon code 0910BTS4).

MSI didn't get the memo that gaming laptops are supposed to be thick and heavy. The company's GS70 is anything but, wielding an Intel Core i7 4700HQ processor, 16GB of RAM, a pair of 128GB SSDs in Super RAID, 1TB hard drive, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M graphics in a frame that measures less than in inch at its thinnest point and weighs just over 5 pounds. The MSI GS70 2OD-002US laptop is also today's top deal -- it's yours for $1,900 with shipping for $14.99 (Free LG monitor with purchase, limited offer).

We've been hearing rumors of a high-octane successor to LG's already well-equipped Optimus G smartphone, and they've now been confirmed by a wireless carrier in Japan. LG's next superphone is the Optimus G Pro, a heavy-hitting device with a 5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) IPS display and 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, along with several other high-end amenities.
LG will attempt to get the UltraWide display party started at CES.
The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is coming up next week, and in the meantime, companies are having a tough time keeping products under wraps. One of the things that will be on display at CES is a premium IPS monitor lineup from LG. What makes LG's monitors stand out from the crowd, however, is that at least one will feature an UltraWide panel with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
LG Electronics is planning to introduce an extended Google TV lineup at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month, the company announced. There will be two new models on display -- GA7900 and GA6400 -- both of which will run Google's latest platform and feature LG's redesigned "Magic Remote QWERTY," which allows you to point-and-click or use Voice Search to find what you're looking for.
LG's Nexus 4 shipments have been "scarce and erratic," Google says.
Google's Nexus 4 debut is an prime example of how not to launch a product. There's nothing wrong with the hardware, mind you, it's the lack of availability that's driving potential buyers batty. How could Google have so ineptly predicted the strong demand than an unlocked and affordable smartphone running the latest version of Android would elicit? That's a great question, and Google is content to partially pass the buck.
We don't know if it's something in Germany's water supply or what, but ultra-wide 21:9 cinematic displays seem to be a popular thing to showcase in recent days. To wit, Toshiba's been showing off its stretched out Satellite U845W at IFA in Berlin, which is getting a Windows 8 makeover in October, and LG unveiled a pair of monitors, one of which also employs a 21:9 aspect ratio.
Are you ready for the second coming of Google's Internet-enabled TV platform? Well, ready or not, Google TV is once again on the horizon, and this time it will be LG making a big push to promote the platform, not Logitech, which had some harsh words for the service after being burned by weak sales and left holding millions of dollars in unsold inventory. That's all in the past as far as LG is concerned, and the future starts in mid-May.
