If Google Glass takes off, I think that it’s going to be a status symbol miles above any (current) gadget. The reason is obvious: the damned thing sits on your face, fully visible for everyone to see/want/hate.
A couple of months ago we found out about Instashare, an app that lets you transfer files from an iOS device to an OS X computer and vice versa. Filedrop is a lot like Instashare, but it has a couple of significant features that make it seem like the better of the two.
It’s been at least a decade since I last played a tabletop RPG, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are programs out there that augment players’ pens and papers with mice and keyboards. But here’s one that seems very easy to use.
App.net was launched last year, and it was a created as a Twitter alternative for companies and organizations who want a private social networking solution. The App.net social networking service is no longer just for paying members.
I’m honestly not real sure what I think about freemium video games for mobile users. It’s nice that you don’t have to pay for the game, but often you have to pay for every little upgrade and it usually works out to be much more expensive than just paying the five or six bucks up front to own the complete game.
WhatsApp is arguably one of the most popular cross-platform messenger apps available out there. Though until now, WhatsApp hasn’t been free on iOS. You had to shell out $0.99 to get it on your iPhone. Well, for a limited time, WhatsApp is free.
Last year we looked at a fan made Pokémon mod for Minecraft. Pokémon 3D might be better than that. Currently in development by another Poké fan named Nils Drescher aka Nilllzz, the game is a 3D recreation of Pokémon Gold/Silver.
Earlier this year we saw a calculator playing Pokémon via a Game Boy Color emulator. Redditor Builderboy2005 has made something way better (or worse, depending on your expectations). Portal Prelude, a game for Texas Instruments calculators.
If you’re looking for new video game to play on your computer over the long holiday weekend and you’re a fan of first-person shooters, you might want to give PlanetSide 2 a go. The game has launched in North America and Europe and is a massively-multiplayer online shooter that has gamers enlisting in one of three empires.
I wouldn’t be surprised if millions of Pokémon fans have been wishing for years for a MMO version of their beloved game. Nintendo may soon have more reason to consider making such a game. And I’m not talking about the impending release of World of Warcraft’s Mists of Pandaria expansion and its Pet Battle System.
EA has announced something exciting that fans of the Command & Conquer franchise are sure to be happy about. The announcement came at Gamescom in Germany this week. It turns out that the previously announced Command & Conquer: Generals 2 has been transformed into a free-to-play video game, and will run on the Frostbite 2 engine, which powers the graphics in Battlefield 3.
Last March, Blizzard released a Diablo 3 skill calculator for excited gamers to tinker and drool over their future characters. But gaming website IncGamers has an even better snack for Diablo fans before the main course arrives.
The “Slide to Unlock” interface has become one of the most iconic features of iOS devices. It never occurred to me to think of it as a fun activity, but apparently thousands of people do, because there’s actually a game built around it.
Stores like Gamestop and Best Buy make a ton of money from buying and selling used games, but a new service called Waygoz wants to cut out these middlemen by linking gamers to who want to swap games with each other.
Google’s Maps service is a wonderful evolution of the ever useful map. But sometimes street names and building numbers are still not enough cues for directions. I’m sure you’ve mentioned a nearby building or store as a landmark when you’re giving or asking for directions, simply because a building is easier to spot than a street sign.
Until today the things we’ve seen that bear name Flutter are plain stupid – one of them intentionally so, but still. A new program for OS X devices is out to change that. Flutter for Mac lets you control playback on iTunes and Spotify simply by raising your hand.
