This "Sandbox" Runs Any Browser Without Local Installs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2134 days, 23 hours, 27 minutes ago
Sunday, January 15, 2012 10:54:02 AM GMT
Seattle-based developer Spoon offers every browser you can think of, ranging from Internet Explorer 6 to Firefox 2 to Chrome 11 (okay, so there's no Netscape). Spoon even provides the new ones too like Firefox 9, Chrome 16 and Opera 11.60. The trick is that users aren't required to download and install the software locally. Instead, they simply set up an account and then load up any browser in Spoon's isolated virtual machine (more)

Max Payne needs some fashion advice

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2135 days, 12 hours, 48 minutes ago
Saturday, January 14, 2012 9:33:50 PM GMT
Looking at these new Max Payne 3 screens has made me realize how badly Max Payne needs a stylist. Sure, he pulls it off with the grey suit, but then he goes and has some sort of midlife crisis causing him to shave his head and wear a tank top. A tank top, people! Don't even get me started on his horrible taste in ties. (more)

It's easy to forget sometimes that video games are a business, as well as a means of artistic expression and recreation. Even developers like Cave, whose sterling reputation is due almost entirely to its long-time devotion to the incredibly esoteric bullet-hell genre, have to make tough decisions in order to continue existing.

A Red Scarlet-X 4K tour around CES 2012 (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2135 days, 13 hours, 1 minute ago
Saturday, January 14, 2012 9:20:09 PM GMT
For the third CES in a row, our old friend Ted Schilowitz has stopped by to let us drool over Red's latest high-end cameras. And boy, this is one helluva camera we have this time. You may recall that last year we were shown a working Scarlet prototype with 3K video resolution and a fixed lens; but fast forward to 2012 and we have the Scarlet-X, a sturdy 4K beast that not only supports interchangeable lens, but it's also actually out on the market.

The Superbowl of smartphones? Why, that would be Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. But that didn't stop the mobile industry's heavy hitters from giving us a taste of the year in wireless to come at CES. With Windows Phones finally getting LTE, Intel's Medfield CPU making its handset debut, Sony synergizing under its mega brand umbrella and fringe manufacturers wowing attendees with stock Ice Cream Sandwich and super-thin profiles, it appears phone aficionados have plenty to anticipate.

It's turned out to be a big weekend for those concerned about the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act. Yesterday came word that a key House hearing originally scheduled for Wednesday will be delayed until there is a "consensus" on the bill, and today the White House has issued an official statement on SOPA (and the Protect IP Act, its counterpart in the Senate) in response to a petition that drew thousands of signatures.

IBM stores bits on arrays of atoms, shrinks magnetic storage to the scientific limit

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2135 days, 13 hours, 4 minutes ago
Saturday, January 14, 2012 9:18:01 PM GMT
IBM's Almaden Research Center is filled with some of the best and brightest minds in the world, and its researchers just released new findings that detail how just how far IBM has come in the realm of magnetic storage. Andreas Heinrich is leading the team at Big Blue that figured out how to create atomic storage based on the fact that atoms of ferromagnetic material align their spins in one direction -- so the ability to control the spin direction is what's needed to make such minature memory possible.

Saturday, January 14, 2012 9:17:11 PM GMT
Blackberry's QNX division wants to expand its footprint and the next major push is inside your car. To that end, a handful of QNX engineers ripped out the stock (and pretty damned good) Porsche head unit on a 911 convertible and stuffed it with a new capacitive screen running the latest build of the OS. As you can see in the video after the jump, it's an attractive and quick setup, that does everything from VOIP calls to navigation, and since it's running the same software as the Playbook, it can theoret...
