Third-party smartphone gaming controllers were one of the most talked about gadgets last year and gaming companies are expected to spruce up the trend in 2014. Though there have been no major announcements made so far for controllers, with Huawei’s Tron grabbing most of the attention at the CES 2014, there are some options that were released last year which Android device owners can now take advantage of on the cheap.
And in case you are wondering why you should use a controller to play an Android game instead of the screen controllers, I submit the following:
• They significantly enhance the gaming experience on mobile.
• They can be used to perform other functions: control presentations, snap images remotely and track down the smartphone.
• They can accommodate multi-player gaming on the small screen.
Among the choices available, these three Android controllers currently provide the best value and are available for $50 and under:
It has been seen that smartphone screens increased in size and form factor over the course of time, and even Apple has been forced to follow the trend and reportedly will be releasing an iPhablet in May. However, the developers behind the iMpulse controller think smaller is better, perhaps the reason why they’ve released the smallest available wireless controller for Android and iOS devices to date.

Cold air intake kits are growing more common through custom shops, particularly on the web. This leaves many curious as to what actual benefits they provide to a diesel vehicle. This is a point of contention among some, but the basics of the benefits can be easily summarized as follows.
The first reason to pursue a cold air intake is efficiency. Fuel efficiency can be increased when cold air is being used to mix with diesel for combustion. The ignition temperatures and mechanics are different for hot air as it tends to be less dense. Colder air is denser and thus mixes more thoroughly with diesel fuel for a hotter, more efficient burn. The long-term ramifications of cold air intakes haven’t been tested in this regard. Some attest that using a cold air intake for a long period of time will gradually degrade the integrity of your engine’s cylinders. Others cite the potential for failure in ignition. However, these are primarily problems associated with older cold air intake kits that were not always designed with optimal vehicle compatibility in mind. Modern cold air intake kits tend to work much more cleanly with modern diesel engines, making them overall a better option. Read more
