Desktop Connect Vnc App: and Just Like That, Flash on the iPad!
If you ask me, the perfect tablet would be a combination of the iPad and the JooJoo; i.e. an iPad with a camera, support for Flash and a USB port. Fortunately for (future) iPad owners, the Desktop Connect app by Antecea takes care of two of those missing features.

Ribbon Hero: Holy Crap! Microsoft Actually Went Through With It
Remember the bit of news we shared a while back about Microsoft’s filing a trademark for “Ribbon Hero?” Well now the game/add-on/learning tool is available for download! It’s a manifestation of Mr. Schell’s vision of the future, but at least this time the game is for a product that a customer has a already bought and is primarily a learning tool, and an optional one at that, not a nagging advertisement.

Ubisoft Drm Epic Fail as Assassin’S Creed 2 Servers Crash: Ubigettinonmynerves
Ubisoft got a taste of Murphy’s Law as the company’s newly implemented Internet-dependent anti-piracy measure has left owners of the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II unable to log in and thus play their game. It was bound to happen, but I didn’t think it would happen almost right from the get go.

Which the Game: More Like What… Where? Who… Holy Shi-
Saw this on TV yesterday. At around 4 in the morning. Not good. Which is a short first-person PC game which gives players a simple goal: find a way out of the goddamn horror house. Game creator Mike Inel used simple graphics to great effect.

Crysis 2 Screenshots: Finally, a Reason to Upgrade Your Gaming Rig
Time to update that worn out question gamers: Will your PC play Crysis… 2?

There’s a new threat in Azeroth, one so fearsome that not even the combined might of the Alliance and the Horde can stop it: Hackers. Apparently a trojan has been spreading that intercepts the authentication code generated by the Blizzard Authenticator.

Starcraft 2 Gives Noobs the Gift of Destructible Rocks

Starcraft 2 Gives Noobs the Gift of Destructible Rocks
There are rocks blocking the way, reports Ars Technica’s Ben Kuchera from the beta testing battlefield of the highly anticipated RTS StarCraft 2. These destructible rocks have 2000 hit points and intentionally block chokepoints or base entrances in order to prevent, or at least discourage early game rushing, since small fry like zergling will have to chip away at the rocks for quite a while before they reach the enemy base.

Plain Sight: for These Ninja Robots, Death is an Investment

Plain Sight: for These Ninja Robots, Death is an Investment
There are very few games where dying is a crucial mechanic, a requisite step; Beatnik Games’ Plain Sight is one of the few games that comes to mind. And that’s just because they e-mailed me to remind that the game is just about done.

Apple Tablet Designs Surface (From 1983)
Back in the ’80s, Apple was already thinking about a tablet-like computer. These are the early prototypes that were created all the way back in 1983. This tablet was named Bashful, which seems kind of strange.
