Sony’s latest attempt to lift a slice of the handheld pie so ably scoffed by Nintendo is the PS Vita: a chunky black slab of portable PlayStation.
It’s a substantial revamp of the company’s handheld legacy that started with the PSP and has evolved, until now, through five largely identical models since its 2004 debut.
Each step saw minor revisions – three of which, the PSP-1000, 2000 and 3000, were basically size revising updates – and attempts to chase a rapidly changing market.
The PSP Go added a sliding-case design further shrinking the device, and ditched [...]
When a German teen inadvertently invited thousands of strangers to her sixteenth-birthday party via Facebook this month, a predictable amount of chaos and confused policing ensued.
The German teenager, named Thessa, forgot to ensure that her invite for the Facebook event set for her party was set to private.
This soon spiralled into 15,000 people confirming their attendance at her birthday party, with around 1,600 turning up at her parent’s house on the night of the shindig.
Chaos, violence, fires
Having understood the potential chaos that could (and did) ensue, the girl alerted [...]

127 Hours (2010) *****Directed by Danny Boyle
127 Hours (2010)- Pretty damn amazing. Maybe the most intense film I’ve seen in the last few years. ***** out of 5
Without a doubt, had anyone else other than Danny Boyle directed 127 Hours, it would be a vastly different film. One of the most visceral filmgoing experiences I’ve ever had, we see the true story of Aron Ralston, a fearless and arguably stupid outdoor adventure junkie who is so confident in his own skills that he doesn’t tell anyone where he’s going despite the fact that [...]
Android is one of the most promising mobile platforms currently available on the market. More than 100 new Android smartphones are expected in the coming year. One of the best features of the Android OS is the availability of third party applications.
There are two ways to install third party applications on your Android based phones:
The first way is by installing applications through the online Android Market, which we have already covered.
The second way is to manually install APK applications developed using the Android SDK on your Android phone.
APK applications are basically Android [...]
Did you know some Android phones can do video out via the 3.5 mm headset jack? We have seen examples of video out using USB and HDMI, but the Galaxy S is the first Android phone (that I know of) to offer this feature using a 3.5 mm headset jack. I find this kind of surprising since we just attended the Galaxy S launch party and no one from Samsung mentioned this interesting feature.
Apparently the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S has a TV out option built into the display settings that allows you to pick your TV type (PAL or NTSC). All you need is the appropriate cable, which [...]
Apple has a long relationship with Adobe. In fact, we met Adobe’s founders when they were in their proverbial garage. Apple was their first big customer, adopting their Postscript language for our new Laserwriter printer. Apple invested in Adobe and owned around 20% of the company for many years. The two companies worked closely together to pioneer desktop publishing and there were many good times. Since that golden era, the companies have grown apart. Apple went through its near death experience, and Adobe was drawn to the corporate market with their Acrobat products. Today the two companies [...]
Nick Clegg, leader of the UK Liberal Democrats party, has pledged to repeal the odious Digital Economy Act, which was rushed through without substantial debate before Parliament adjourned for the election. Time to start asking the other party leaders and MPs if they’ll support the repeal of the DEAct and a revisiting of the issues from the bottom up:
Q: Will you reconsider the Digital Economy Bill considering the manner it was pushed through, without proper scrutiny, the lack of MPs in attendance at the Bill’s hearing and also taking into account that some ministers have demonstrated [...]
