Are you still running an original iPhone with its aluminum casing? It's been a worthy companion over the years, hasn't it? Even without 3G or GPS or compass, it still runs nearly everything that the latest iPhone 3GS does – but that's about to come to an end. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2631 days, 16 hours, 43 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 14, 2010 9:16:41 AM GMT
As we've at CES and the amazing buzz created by films such as Avatar , 3D is the next big thing after the jump to 1080p high-definition. Now the 3D experience is hitting the home theater big time with all major TV makers putting out 3D HDTVs this year – but they're not for everyone, especially not children, the elderly, sleepy people, pregnant women and drunks.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2631 days, 16 hours, 46 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 14, 2010 9:14:02 AM GMT
It looks like FLO TV is about to get a little more interesting. Alongside your automobile and your various smartphones, you'll soon be able to turn to your smartbooks, e-readers, and tablets to access your mobile TV service. The diabolical plot begins when the company launches "new applications that integrate video with web-based content" for distributing "live mobile TV and rich mobile media services to a range of new devices." What does all this mean, exactly? (more)

HTC 'continues to assess' developing its own smartphone OS, Palm says 'hey, assess this'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2631 days, 16 hours, 47 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 14, 2010 9:12:48 AM GMT
Failing a Palm acquisition, there might still be justification for HTC to build out its own software platform for many of the same reasons that buying Palm would make sense -- the company's getting bigger and more important to the market by the day, after all, and being left at the mercy of Google and Microsoft to produce cohesive platforms of their own might not sit well with Chou's team ad infinitum.

Why The Halo MMO Was Cancelled

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2632 days, 18 hours, 3 minutes ago
Tuesday, April 13, 2010 7:56:59 AM GMT
A few years ago, Microsoft-owned Ensemble Studios, the team behind Age of Empires, was working on a Halo massively-multiplayer online game, code-named Titan. That project ended up a bust, and was cancelled by Microsoft. Here's why. "We had all this incredible talent, we had the right people, the right passion, we had a phenomenally successful IP - the Halo IP", says Dusty Monk, formerly of Ensemble. (more)

Tuesday, April 13, 2010 7:53:34 AM GMT
If you're wondering why Capcom sought the Canadian influence of new developer Blue Castle Games for Dead Rising 2, producer Shinsaku Ohara has a bit of insight.

When Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello said late last year that he wanted to take back the first-person shooter crown from Activision's "Call of Duty" games, few onlookers could have predicted that we would find ourselves looking at former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella sitting atop their new Respawn Entertainment studio today holding an exclusive agreement with EA.
