Final Fantasy Solo Guitar Collections 2 teaches you

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2401 days, 23 hours, 18 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 19, 2011 8:34:44 AM GMT
I wish a Moogle could teach me how to play guitar on a little Moogle-sized guitar. Watching it strum classic Final Fantasy songs passionately with its eyes closed [wait, aren't their eyes always closed?] would be amazing. (more)

World of StarCraft' finally a reality, created by modders

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2401 days, 23 hours, 21 minutes ago
Wednesday, January 19, 2011 8:32:30 AM GMT
Though it's slightly lacking in originality, a StarCraft-themed version of Blizzard's World of Warcraft always seems to come up while fans are discussing the company's possible upcoming projects. One group of modders got sick of the speculation, and made this dream a reality: Using StarCraft 2's powerful user-generated content tools, the team created a surprisingly beefy World of StarCraft game mode, a video demonstration for which is posted after the jump.

Intel's Sandy Bridge-based Core processors are the latest thing from the largest chipmaker in the world, and its integrated graphics are the best from the company yet. It won't erase the need for a dedicated GPU just yet, but it's got some 3D muscle. (more)

Called AutoLinQ, the technology is hiding behind the usual touchscreen, but it will be capable of doing pretty much what an Android smartphone can do, including downloading apps. Developer Continental said that it will be offering a dedicated app store for AutoLinQ and is even pitching a developer program for its system. (more)

Wednesday, January 19, 2011 8:13:59 AM GMT
Still mad over news that Netflix is removing the "Add to DVD Queue" button from media streamers? Then you're probably a commenter on the corporate blog but just in case you were wondering, it appears this doesn't apply to the mobile apps most of us manage our queues with when away from the official site, Netflix PR says it's just devices that connect to the TV.

Wednesday, January 19, 2011 8:13:50 AM GMT
We've seen it inside and out. We've seen it naked. Now we're seeing it do its thing. Tesla has just released a tasty video of the Alpha version of the Model S carving some corners, and while this isn't the first time we've seen the car in motion this is the best taste of the Alpha we've yet been given. Check out the video after the break and, no, your speakers aren't broken, it is that quiet. Oh, and if you'd like to know more about what's going on under all that chrome and silver make sure you peruse ou... (more)

Once upon a time, when handheld game systems were thicker and Nintendo was entirely without peer, the company deigned to allow us to import games without fear. On Game Boy of all shapes and sizes, as well as the Nintendo DS, a Japanese cartridge would let you experience portable wonders years before they hit Europe and the US. (more)

Oh, Sprint, you sneaky devil. The nation's third-largest carrier just announced that it's tacking on an extra monthly $10 "premium data" charge to its 3G Everything data plans -- in effect, charging 3G phone owners the same total price that Evo and Epic owners pay now for 4G service. (more)

HTC ThunderBolt will support simultaneous voice and data in LTE areas

At CES, Verizon had mentioned that "some... but not all" of its first LTE handsets would support the simultaneous use of voice and data. That's not news for 3G customers on T-Mobile and AT&T, nor WiMAX customers on Sprint -- but for Verizon subscribers, this is a very novel concept, indeed. (more)

What if the zerg creep from Starcraft existed in real life?

Monday, January 17, 2011 8:10:54 AM GMT
Creep: that purple, fibrous, living mat that extends from zerg "buildings" in the computer game StarCraft. Its ominous presence indicates you're entering unsafe territory...unless you're playing as zerg, in which case it says "Welcome home!" But what exactly is it? (more)
