Sony CEO Defends the Handling of PSN Breach

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2348 days, 5 hours, 10 minutes ago
Friday, May 20, 2011 8:13:31 AM GMT
Sony has come under fire for its handling of the April 20 network breach that saw the personal data of more than 77 million users get stolen. The company has apologized profusely for the incident and thanked users for their patience in almost every blog post regarding the incident. However, customers are still, understandably, incredibly peeved about the breach. So, how will recent comments made by Sony President Howard Stringer go down? (more)

Friday, May 20, 2011 8:10:34 AM GMT
While there’s still no official word on when the Store will be coming back, an inside memo sent to publishing partners and devs suggests that the relaunch is scheduled for next Tuesday, May 24. The memo, obtained by Gamasutra, details Sony’s plans to do two "content pushes" per week for the next two weeks in order to catch up with the backlog.

XtremeMac InCharge Auto & Home BT chargers stream music, phone calls over bluetooth -- Engadget

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2348 days, 5 hours, 15 minutes ago
Friday, May 20, 2011 8:09:03 AM GMT
There are many ways to get your phone's tunes to your system's speakers, and now thanks to XtremeMac, you have two more. At $80, the InCharge Home BT is just $20 cheaper than an Apple TV, and it only lets you stream audio over bluetooth (vs. video, and WiFi for the Apple TV).

Apple patent application suggests partial storage of music to speed up streaming

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2348 days, 5 hours, 15 minutes ago
Friday, May 20, 2011 8:08:27 AM GMT
Could Apple's forthcoming cloud-based music service have a leg up in speed compared to its competitors? It might if a recently published patent application from the company actually pans out. It suggests that just a snippet of the beginning of a song (or movie, for that matter) could be stored locally on a device, and then be synced to the complete version in the cloud, which would let you begin playback "immediately" rather than having to wait for the usual buffering to take place.

Nokia's Windows Phones will feature dual-core ST-Ericsson U8500, says STMicroelectronics chief

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2348 days, 5 hours, 16 minutes ago
Friday, May 20, 2011 8:07:45 AM GMT
As you'll no doubt be aware, Qualcomm currently enjoys a stranglehold on processing hardware inside Windows Phone handsets. Its Snapdragon chip stars in both Microsoft's original and updated chassis spec for the platform, but its hegemony may soon be coming to an end. STMicroelectronics (the ST in ST-Ericsson) boss Carlo Bozotti is cited by Forbes as saying that Nokia will use ST-Ericsson hardware to power at least some of its Windows Phones (more)

The 16GB-equipped, 7-inch Flyer from HTC is making its way west this week.

E3 11: What is your dream game announcement at E3?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2349 days, 6 hours, 58 minutes ago
Thursday, May 19, 2011 6:25:22 AM GMT
At this year’s E3, I would love to see a brand new StarTropics game. The first two games on the NES are two of my favorite games of all time, and it would be so amazing to see a new sequel set in that same pleasant, colorful, unique universe. 3DS or Project Cafe is just fine, Nintendo. I am not picky. Thanks in advance! (more)
