PSA: Gears of War 3 title update 3 drops today

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 32 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:37:36 AM GMT
You'll be prompted to download the update upon booting up your game today. It also addresses ghost camera issues and allows players to prime a revive for a DBNO (down but not out) teammate by holding in the Y button before they approach. It's basically the same thing as holding in the X button before approaching a weapon pickup. (more)

Street Fighter 25th Anniversary logo a precursor to 'international celebration'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 33 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:36:58 AM GMT
Can you ever get enough 25th anniversary logos for Capcom properties? We hope not, because here's another one. The first Street Fighter (the one nobody played) came out in 1987, and Capcom is planning some kind of "international celebration" to mark the big anniversary. Think about that for a second -- the Street Fighter and Mega Man franchises started in the same year. (more)

Skyrim, if it were set in 2012

Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:35:50 AM GMT
The great secret Bethesda hasn't revealed to anyone yet is that citizens of Skyrim are actually learning, adapting and evolving. If you set your PC or console forward a couple thousand years, you'll be able to play Skyrim in a modern setting, as seen in this clip. (more)

VGo telepresence robot gets Verizon LTE, we go eyes-on (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 39 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:30:42 AM GMT
The idea of a telepresence robot isn't exactly new in the tech world, considering there's been a few going to school in the place of teenagers for over a year now. But the VGo 'bot -- a chest-high roving device that has a display and camera built-in and allows patients and others to interact with a remote operator -- is at CES this year to show off its inclusion of Verizon LTE, instead of the WiFi-only model we've seen in times past. Certainly, the robot can default to WiFi in the absence of Big Red's ne... (more)

Aha Radio in the Subaru BRZ hands-on (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:30:11 AM GMT
Aha Radio announced this week that it'll be an optional extra in 2013 Subaru and Honda autos. Vehicles so equipped will have the ability to listen to thousands of web radio stations and apps -- like Slacker and MOG -- alongside the regular AM / FM and satellite radio rotation. A short jaunt from our trailer at CES, we grabbed a quick demo with a Subaru representative aboard the 2013 BRZ. (more)

Samsung Smart Interaction gesture controlled HDTV demo (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 42 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:28:03 AM GMT
Samsung revealed some of its 2012 HDTVs would include a built in camera and mic to enable a feature it calls Smart Interaction, which is just a brand name for voice and gesture control. We stopped by the company's massive CES booth today and squeezed between all of those 55-inch OLEDs to get a quick demo, and found it mirrored the suddenly common Kinect functionality we've become accustomed to closely. Like Microsoft's add-on, Samsung's setup has a keyword that activates it (Hi TV) and like the recently ... (more)

Verizon FiOS TV app to deliver VOD and live HD to LG TVs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 43 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:27:32 AM GMT
Everybody has to have an app these days and telecom companies like Verizon are no different. Apps on smartphones and tablets, apps on game consoles and even apps on HDTVs or Blu-ray players. The latest app from Verizon is the FiOS TV App, which will be coming to LG's Smart TV Platform in the first half of 2012. In addition to 26 live channels, like Verizon's Xbox 360 app, (more)

Nikon D4 Ethernet tethered shooting hands-on (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 43 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:27:07 AM GMT
After getting our eager mitts on Nikon's long overdue D3 successor, aptly named the D4, we got a second chance to revisit our fat-bodied, photo-taking friend at the company's CES booth. The 16.2MP DSLR features a 3.2-inch LCD screen and is capable of 1080p video capture at 30fps. But that's not why we went back for more and it's not why you're reading this right now. We were keen to put the D4's big, bad networking capabilities to the test -- one of which links an array of up to ten of the cameras togeth... (more)

Watch Tosy's Drawing Robot Draw A Dragon

The second of Tosy's two products shown off at CES 2012 doesn't have the vim and panache of their adorable dancing robot. However, it does have a keen eye for detail and the patience necessary to create fine workman-like quality. It's a drawing bot - can't you tell by its adorable quill ballpoint pen? (more)

Ears-on With Silentium's Noise-canceling Quiet Bubble

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 48 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:22:09 AM GMT
Silentium, in addition to having a most excellently science fiction name, bills itself as "a leading innovator in the field of embedded active noise control," or, as it's called in non marketspeak, noise reduction technology. At CES, Silentium prepared a demonstration of two of its products based on what they call Quiet Bubble, the QB1 Active Headset and the QB 2 Active Headrest. (more)

Nokia: Microsoft Is NOT Buying Our Smartphone Division

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2079 days, 3 hours, 50 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:20:26 AM GMT
In an interview with PC Magazine, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said that the rumor about Microsoft purchasing Nokia's smartphone division is completely bogus. He said the rumor likely surfaced because "some people" are running out of fresh material, and enjoy generating rumors. The "some people" reportedly refers to Nokia watcher Eldar Murtazin who surmised that Microsoft plans to purchase Nokia's smartphone division based on a report released by Danske Bank last week.

After being turned down over a raise request, they were reportedly told to quit with compensation or stay on board with no extra pay. Employees who quit under this pretense were not paid as promised, and it wasn't until 9:00pm on January 3 that they were talked down, eventually by the mayor of Wuhan. (more)

The most exciting item at first glance is the Power Grip for PS Vita, pictured above.
