Instant communication gratification, Friend or Foe?

27 Apr

These days the information superhighway is vast and unending. The need to instantly relay information has become an everyday way of life. Jumping from one fast form to the next. Light speed a complete unadulterated instantaneous explosion of connection that begs the question “how safe is it?”

Patent Wars: The case chronicles

27 Apr

Just when you think people will sue over just about anything, something new jumps up and bites you in the ass. Seeing someone sue for an intellectual property claim is not uncommon, or complain about about hardware. Even this claim is nothing new for a company bringing in billions upon billions of cheddar.

Path: THE Mobile Social Network

4 Apr

I know, like some Android users out there it is one social network after another. Between Facebook,Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, and countless amounts of other social “crapworks” why would we want to introduce another? Well, because it works and it works pretty darn well.

Unlike Facebook it will not make your eyes bleed, and different than Google+, not just anyone will find you.

Excuse me if I get just a little giddy while typing this out, but it stood to happen eventually. After years DECADES of iFanboys sitting in their thrones of condescension Apple has failed. Not in the iPad 2s, er 3 . . . HD? … fuck it! They have failed in the sense that they allowed a network provider “strong arm” them in to adding a tiny icon next to their name. AT&T made Apple add the “4G” emblem next to their network tag on the notification bar on iOS 5.1.

“Google Games”, the future of unified gaming?

7 Mar

The future of gaming is just around the corner! No, not a new console, or a new game for PC. What we are talking is what Venture Beat has quoted Punit Soni in saying to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

By next year, we will not be here talking about Google+ Games, Chrome Web Store games, Games for Native Client and Android games. We will be talking about Google games.
