Bad Apple! Build your own shit!

8 Mar

This one takes the cake … well maybe not. Apple a company known for stealing others work and passing it off as their own has been at it again! This time in the way of iPhoto’s (Apple Maps) tiles. What everyone is reporting out there is;

John Gruber at Daring Fireball is reporting that the maps data being used in iPhoto’s location feature is still provided by Google, but that the maps provided in iPhoto’s slideshow and journal sharing options are an Apple-only solution.

The end of an era….

8 Mar

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.

PSP Vita too much, too late….

8 Mar

Sony finally releases the PSP “Vita” to the North American market, but is it too much too late?

 As most of the world knows the hand-held gaming market has been dominated by one name alone, Nintendo. Now as tech moves to a more mobile platform we now see gaming moving to tablets and cellular devices across the board.

 Though the device itself is very appealing is very appealing boasting an ARM Cortex A9, a sleek 5 inch OLED touch scree, dual cameras (front and rear 0.3mp) and wifi and 3G flavors. Removing its renowned XMB interface with an all entirely new UI and taking notes from the mobile market it has “enhanced” its layout with a more friendly look. Giving you a bubbly friendly interface which is fully interactive.

 I had a chance to play with a demo device at a Target store the device was just as any other PSP model before it, a very solid feeling device. I will give it to Sony they sure know how to make a sexy device feel sexy in  your hands and the screen is breath taking with vibrant colors. Though it was really weird trying to navigate the UI after some time it became pretty cool to play with. “Peeling” away unused apps/games from your screen was a neat feature.

“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.
