As gaming’s big week prepares to kick off tonight with a circus-themed blow-out in downtown Los Angeles, the rumors are beginning to hit a fevered pitch.
Three bits of news came to our attention this weekend. Let’s run through them from most likely to least likely:
Patrice Désilets is headed to THQ Montreal: We know Patrice Désilets, the creative director for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed, may have left his job just as the publisher is speeding the sequelization of the very successful franchise. But now we’re hearing that Désilets has landed comfortably at [...]
Samsung Corby was one of its all-time most popular phone that sold 5 million units worldwide in just two months or so! Corby touchscreen phone came in three different flavours and was powered by Samsung’s own OS.
Samsung Galaxy i5500 is the next phone in the Samsung series of Android devices, which is also known as Corby. This phone will also be a budget, low-end Samsung Galaxy phone, but the new one will be powered by Android 2.1.
Let’s take a look at what the specifications have to say about the Samsung Galaxy i5500.

Display: 2.8-inch QVGA LCD touchscreen
At WWDC 2010 keynote Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs has revealed the new iPhone 4 and also make announcements about the iPhone 4 availability, pricing, and pre-order.
iPhone 4 Availability & Price
From 24 June 2010 iPhone 4 will be available for sale. Following are the iPhone 4 pricing for black and white color models with AT&T contract.
16GB iPhone 4 price: $199
32GB iPhone 4 price: $299
This is also announced that if the customer’s contract with AT&T top up 2 years and expires anytime in 2010 then he will be eligible for upgrade to iPhone 4 with the same price of $199 or $299.
We had to do a double take when we saw the $180 price on this 7-inch X10 touchscreen Tablet PC. Amid a sea of me-too slate PCs, this one makes lofty claims, including the most eyebrow-raising of all: the ability to play 1080p video over its HDMI port.
If this cheap 800×480 Wi-Fi and GPS-packing tablet can do what its maker says, it could be a game changer. Instead of spending $1000 on that bulky home theater PC we showed you yesterday, or $500 on the cheapest iPad, you could just plug this baby into your HDTV and watch a huge variety of Blu-ray-quality video formats, including H.264 and Matroska [...]

Since the iPad’s U.S. launch, Apple has had to restrict sales to two per person. That’s because the U.S. has been the only place to buy them, and Europeans have been trying to buy 10 at a time to bring home and sell to friends. Looks like that won’t be an issue for much longer.
On May 28, the following countries get to hand over more of their hard-earned money to Apple for a shiny piece of tech: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K.. And then in July, Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand [...]

Opera has seen a massive increased in downloads of its browser following the introduction of the browser ballot ‘choice screen’ into Microsoft Windows.
Microsoft ended years of arguing by producing a ballot screen that was rolled out in Europe through Windows Update to people who used Internet Explorer – the default browser and another Microsoft product.
The ballot screen gave people the option of choosing a different default browser, listing Opera alongside the likes of IE, Chrome, Safari and Firefox.
Opera has already told TechRadar that it has been delighted by the change it has [...]
Pritzker-winning architect Zaha Hadid has done it again, this time with the craziest shopping center ever. While it looks otherworldly, Jesolo Magica will exist here on earth in its complete form by 2014. Located just outside Venice, Italy, inside this building will be lots of shopping and drinking and eating establishments, a health club, meeting space, and even offices and a hotel.
While such a spectacular structures dazzle the eye, building such curves and unusual shapes is exorbitantly expensive. We’re wondering if that 2014 completion date might slip a bit, especially in light of the [...]
