Though the Moto X 2017 hasn’t been announced yet, it’s very likely we’ll see the phone sometime in 2017. Even though it isn’t a “thing” officially, we have a lot of rumored specifications on what we can expect from the phone, and it’s shaping up to be a respectable handset.


The display for the Moto X 2017 is rumored to be an IPS LCD touchscreen with 16 million colors. The size will be 5.5 inches and the resolution will be 1080 x 1920 pixels with a 401 ppi density. This is a resolution equal to the 5.5 inch iPhone 7, so it’s likely this screen will be top of the line (although it may be missing the iPhone’s signature Retina HD screen!) The screen will also support Multitouch, which is pretty standard of mobile phones now adays, but it’s good to know that it’ll be included in the Moto X 2017 too.


The Moto X 2017 will run Android OS 7.0 (also known as Android Nougat) which is to be expected. With the recent announcement of Google’s new developer version of an upcoming operating system, though, it’s disappointing that we won’t likely see this cutting edge tech for the OS. Considering that it’s already possible to upgrade existing android phones to this new system, it’s probably going to be possible to do the same for the Moto X 2017 so I wouldn’t be too concerned.

The phone will also feature the Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 which is an outdated chip at this point with many newer phones going for the Snapdragon 635. This is concerning as a new phone launching with a slower chipset might have trouble competing in the ultra-competitive mobile market. The Moto X 2017 will also feature 4 GB of RAM for the 64 GB model (3 GB for the 32 GB version) which is a respectable amount for a phone these days, even topping the iPhone 7 Plus which comes with 3 GB of RAM. Will the extra RAM make up for an outdated chip though? We’re not so sure.

As we mentioned above the Moto X 2017 will be available in a 32 GB and 64 model, but will support microSD cards for up to 256 GB of storage.

The phone is rumored to include a Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and an Adreno 506 GPU


The Moto X 2017 is rumored to include a primary Dual 13 MP camera with autofocus and Dual-LED flash. Special features of the camera that have been leaked thus far are Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama, and auto-HDR.

The camera will record video in 2160p @ 30 fps. A secondary 5 MP camera will also be included and will feature LED flash.


While it’s not possible to know exactly what the phone will cost yet, as it hasn’t even been announced, data from multiple leaks has shown that the phone will likely cost around $270 USD. This is a pretty modest price and we definitely feel like the specifications are reasonable given the affordability of the Moto X 2017

3 Video Games About Women’s Health





Video games have transcended entertainment to become powerful tools for promoting health and wellness. One notable genre in this realm is fitness gaming, exemplified by titles like Hatsune Miku Fit Boxing, which motivates players to engage in physical activity to enhance their fitness levels. Building on this foundation, developers have ventured into women’s health with games designed to raise awareness and empower players to take control of their well-being. Here are 3 video games on women’s health that provide valuable health information and foster a sense of agency to uplift women around the world.

Tampon Run – Menstrual health

Created by Girls Who Code alumnae Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser in 2014, Tampon Run is an old-school 8-bit online game where the main character, Luna, lobs tampons to destroy enemies, who will confiscate the tampons if she lets them pass by. Interestingly, the concept of weaponized tampons is based on a real incident that occurred in 2013, where Texas state troopers confiscated tampons as potential projectiles, but not guns, from visitors observing a vote on abortion restrictions at the Texas State Capitol. The goal of Tampon Run is to destigmatize periods and menstrual products, which, up until recently, have not been properly studied to measure their absorbency, which underscores the need to address menstrual health so that women can get better care.

In between tossing tampons, Luna shares empowering messages about how periods are a natural part of women’s lives and should not be a source of shame or embarrassment. The game is available to play on the Tampon Run website and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store for iOS users.

PCOS Vitality – PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a complex hormonal condition and the leading cause of female infertility that affects approximately 5 to 6 million women in the US, according to the Endocrine Society. Common features of the condition include having irregular menstrual periods, hyperandrogenism, and polycystic ovaries. Additionally, some studies estimate that up to 88% of women with PCOS are overweight or obese. While there are weight loss programs helping women tackle PCOS, focusing on aspects like lifestyle, symptom management, diet, and other tips for how to lose weight with PCOS, the condition itself remains grossly under-researched. For some women, it may take years to confirm that they have PCOS, as there are other disorders that mimic PCOS signs and symptoms that must be excluded.

The lack of research has extended to a lack of awareness among the general population and is what clinicians from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland are trying to address with the 2023 game PCOS Vitality. Essentially a learning tool, the game takes users through a simple obstacle course. As you click toward the finish line, you are asked simple trivia questions about PCOS. The game is free to play on Focus Games’ website.

Bound by Blood – Period poverty

Period poverty refers to the lack of regular access to period products, painkillers, or underwear during a menstrual cycle. In the US, where 16.9 million menstruating women live in poverty, two-thirds cannot afford basic menstrual products. Period poverty has also been associated with mental health issues and urinary tract infections.

Available to play on the website, Bound by Blood was created by Jessica Gates in 2017 and aims to educate players about the reality of period poverty. Users take the character of Beth, a homeless woman who wakes up in her car and realizes that she’s started her period. Players then make a series of choices to try to stay as hygienic as possible in spite of lacking resources such as menstrual products and clean restrooms. There isn’t really a way to “win” the game, and it is instead a peek into the reality of life where period products are inaccessible and how this affects women’s quality of life.

Through these games, players not only gain valuable insights into various aspects of women’s health but also find themselves actively engaged in their own well-being. As developers continue to explore this emerging field, the potential for video games to serve as educational tools and catalysts for change in healthcare remains promising

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year





PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

New PS5 firmware is available for download!





A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.
