Acer changes its logo, hopes to start afresh

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2412 days, 4 hours, 46 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:12:33 AM GMT
Over in Acer HQ, it's out with the old and in with the new. Having bid ciao to former CEO Gianfranco Lanci, the Taiwanese company is now slapping a fresh coat of paint and a softer typeface upon its corporate identity. The new Acer green is lighter and brighter and the more rounded new shape looks a lot safer for kids to play around with, should the occasion ever arise. We doubt this will make a big difference in the company's push to be "more like Apple," but hey, at least we now have a visual marker to... (more)

Xbox 360 Update Preview discs are in the mail

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2412 days, 4 hours, 46 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:11:57 AM GMT
If you signed up the Xbox 360 preview program it's time to start camping out by your mailbox and pestering your delivery person -- the update discs are shipping. A few lucky gamers now have their sneak peak at the next Xbox Live update and free copy of Halo: Reach in hand, and one was kind enough to send us the shot above to prove it. The disc bears a serious warning though: do not try and install it on a non-preview approved system. (more)

Skype with video calling leaks for HTC Thunderbolt, celebrations unsurprisingly erupt (update)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2412 days, 4 hours, 47 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:11:21 AM GMT
Verizon may have left it out from the get-go, but it looks as if eager HTC Thunderbolt owners needn't wait another day to test out a video-enabled version of Skype. For those outside of The Loop, there was quite the back-and-forth going during the early days, with Verizon announcing at the 11th hour that its flagship LTE phone would be shipped sans Skype. It's still unavailable in the bona firde Android Market, but a build has appeared from the ether and seems to be humming along just fine here at Engadg... (more)

Windows 8 app store revealed in leaked screenshots, ready for beta testing?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2412 days, 4 hours, 48 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 7:10:44 AM GMT
Over the last few months, Chinese site cnBeta's been busy dishing out alleged screenshots of Windows 8 at its infancy, though few have caught our attention until this new batch came along. Assuming this isn't the work of some cruel joke, it appears that Microsoft's next flagship OS will be shipped with its very own built-in app store, which is simply dubbed Windows App Store at this stage (and now we see why Redmond keeps fighting the good fight over the "App Store" trademark). As with previous Windows m... (more)

Monday, April 11, 2011 10:26:16 AM GMT
Jedi Knights don't just become Jedi Knights, you know -- if that were the case, The Empire Strikes Back would be way, way shorter. It takes tons of training for a Jedi (and every other class in The Old Republic, for that matter) to hone their abilities to a lightsaber-sharp point. Luckily for the MMO's potential players, BioWare has revealed a ton of information on how this progression will play out in-game. (more)

Apple reportedly hires top UK gaming PR execs from Nintendo and Activision

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2413 days, 1 hour, 36 minutes ago
Monday, April 11, 2011 10:22:14 AM GMT
As you may have noticed, Apple has been more serious about gaming lately that it was even during its Pippin-fueled haze in the mid-1990s, and it's now offering yet more evidence of just how invested it is with a pair of new hires. While the company isn't confirming the move just yet, MCV is reporting that Apple has snatched up Nintendo UK's former head of communications, Rob Saunders, who just left the big N last week and will apparently be focusing on PR for iOS apps at Apple.
