7 Jun 2011  No Comments

Sony announced a new technology at their E3 conference. A “PlayStation” branded 3D display that has the ability to display to separate images simultaneously at full screen. So multiplayer games will no longer suffer from the cropped up images and each player having just half the screen.

This 24″ display comes with a copy of Resistance 3, a pair of glasses (second set will cost $69) and a HDMI cable. All this for $500.

7 Jun 2011  3 Comments

If you follow me on twitter I would have bombarded you with tweets yesterday about both the WWDC and the E3 conferences that were taking place at almost the same time yesterday. Both had some exciting news coming out of them.

 

Activation:
First off, when you get iOS 5, you would not need to hook it up to iTunes for activation using a Mac or a PC. Taking a play from Google, apple will be doing the activation wirelessly.

 

 

Notification:
This one was the most anticipated. Apple revamped the notification system on the iOS. making actually getting a notification more tolerable. Again a “borrowing” the idea from Google’s Android. you can slide down the screen a see all you notification and both the weather and stock widgets (and only widget sadly). Also, notifications will show up on your lockscreen. Making if more than just a glorified clock.

There are 2 major expos taking place this week. WWDC, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick-off later today with Steve Jobs taking the stage and will announce a few things:

  • iOS 5
  • OS X Lion
  • iCloud

What I hope he will announce:

  • A revamped notification and widget system for the iOS 5. Something similar to what the Android has.
  • A new Airport/Time Capsule. A lot of theories are built upon a new Time Capsule and it getting either an A4 or A5 chip. I was in the process of getting on till I heard those rumors and decided to hold off for a few days.
  • Macbook Air i3/i5 upgrade.
  • Mac Mini i3/i5 upgrade.
  • Apple TV A5 chip upgrade and the ability to run apps.

The other event that is taking place this week is the Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3 for short). There are a lot of games that I’m looking forward to playing, so I hope I get more info about them:

  • Nintendo’s new console
  • Uncharted 3
  • Gears of War 3
  • Bioshock: Infinite
  • Infamous 2
  • Need for Speed: The Run
  • Forza 4
  • Skyrim
  • Tomb Raider
  • Darksiders ii
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Silent Hill: Downpour

And a lot more.

The home used in the first Home Alone movie is being sold for 2.4 million dollars (about KD700,000).

Located in the historic town of Winnetka, this stately red-brick colonial Georgian is dramatically situated on a beautifully landscaped half-acre lot, just blocks from the quaint town-center and magnificent Lake Michigan. Built in the 1920s, this residence is now recognized the world over as the “Home Alone Home,” as it was featured in the popular family movie Home Alone and its first sequel.

Apple Suing Samsung? Really?

20 Apr 2011  2 Comments

Apple are suing Samsung for infringing on patent for the original iPhone design. Apple are claiming that Samsung’s Galaxy line is a straight copy from their work and the Galaxy S is just too similar the the iPhone/iPhone 3G/3GS.

The funny thing is that Steve Jobs in an interview done way back in 1994 (back when apple were the underdog) said that “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas”.

LG Prada KE850

Also, LG also complained when the original iPhone was introduced that Apple is is trying to copy the LG Prada. A device that was first announced on December 12, 2006.
