Do you want to launch a missile on your cat or crash a car in your bedroom? Really? Why would you want to do that? Go to your room and think about what you thought of while the rest of us have fun with the Action Movie FX iOS app.
I mentioned before that the Xbox 360 was set to get a dash update this month. As gamers are apt to do, most went out and downloaded that update as soon as it was available. Now, a few people that installed the update have encountered a significant issue where they can’t get online afterwards.
So here’s more proof that sex sells. I think it’s sort of sad why a lot of retailers push women dressed in skimpy or revealing stuff when they aren’t even selling said clothing (or rather, lingerie) in the first place.
Mozilla just launched a new Gamepad API that will allow developers to use either USB or Bluetooth-connected gaming controllers with the Firefox browser. Not so you can scroll web pages with a PS3 or XBox 360 controller, but so that new cool games can be created.
What’s better than a Cthulhu 2012 calendar? How about a calendar app, that will deliver complete insanity directly to your mobile device? It sounds like some Cthulhu cultists have embraced new technology in order to make more people insane during this holiday season.
There are some days when I just wake up and feel too tired to get out of bed. There are chores to do and a lot of stuff to do at work, but sometimes I just can’t seem to find the right motivation to get moving and start the day.
While a version of iOS 5 is available for other iOS devices aside from the iPhone 4S, only Apple’s latest phone can run Siri, the much-hyped virtual assistant. Officially, that is. A trio of developers have conclusively proved that older hardware can handle Siri, in this case the iPhone 3GS.
Owners of the iPhone 4S have their own virtual assistant in the form of the helpful and mostly respectful Siri. But if Corey Thomas gets his way, all PC users can have their own voice-activated virtual assistant too.
Siri can trade jokes and witty banter with you and even serve you beer, but programmer Christopher Deutsch aka CDeutsch has come up with a more practical application for the virtual assistant. Using the help of a few store-bought gadgets and Siri’s other digital buddies, Christoper Deutsch (aka “CDeutsch”) was able to create a voice-controlled home automation system.
Thus far, the Wii has only had Netflix for streaming content, but that will change soon. Nintendo has announced that Hulu Plus will be available on both the Wii and the 3DS very soon. While we don’t have a launch date yet, we do know that it will hit “both systems by the end of the year.”
How’d you like a brand new game for the old 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System? Not convinced? What if I told you it involved an epic battle between goats and Nazis? Ah, I thought that might sell you on it.
You can find advantages and disadvantages in almost every thing, person, or situation. iOS 5 is no exception. I mean, you get a new notification center, a new messaging service to keep in touch with friends and family, and a reminders app that makes making to-do lists a cinch.
Disabled gamers still have limited options when it comes to customizing controllers to better suit their condition. Fortunately, there are kind hearted souls who are working on a solution, like the folks at Evil Controllers and the Able Gamers Foundation, who have released a controller made specially for the disabled.
This week just been packed with rumors of all sorts. The latest is that Google is getting ready to launch its own MP3 store. Google has a Beta cloud music storage service now, but it only allows you to store your already-purchased music.
Are you worried about the fact that your bank doesn’t allow you to handle your transactions by using gestures? (Well, there’s the one fingered gesture that we would all sometimes like to flip all of our banks.)
