posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2728 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes ago
Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:47:59 AM GMT
It's the rumor that won't die. After sitting on the sidelines while the iPhone drove up subscriber count and average revenue per user for AT&T over the past three years, Verizon may be getting a CDMA version of Apple's successful smartphone this summer. That is, as long as Apple and Verizon can agree on pricing. (more)

Microsoft legal unfazed by Ubuntu Windows XP GUI clone

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2728 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes ago
Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:47:31 AM GMT
When word came over the holidays that a Chinese group had created an Ubuntu distribution named Ylmf OS that clones the look and feel of Windows XP, we contacted Microsoft to see what they thought about this very odd way of pirating the company's most popular operating system. While some speculated that Redmond would take action to stamp out Ylmf OS rather quickly, not in the name of pirating the operating system's code but in the name of protecting its GUI, the official response we received back is nothi...

Warner Bros props up decaying DVD market with Netflix pact

Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:47:01 AM GMT
Warner Bros. has signed a new agreement that will bring the studio's new releases to Netflix in DVD, Blu-ray, and streaming form—a month after the original DVD release. The companies announced the continuation of their partnership today, but with the added twist of the 28-day delay, clearly meant to help Warner Bros. sell more physical media in a dying market.

Sharp debuts 60-inch 240Hz Aquos LED LCD TV, 68-inch set with a touch of yellow in its RGB

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2728 days, 21 hours, 44 minutes ago
Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:44:14 AM GMT
Like the steady hand on your wristwatch, Sharp is arriving at CES with a handful of new television sets... so let's get on with the show! This year, the Aquos LED LCD TV series is touting an impressive 1.6-inch thin frame, Energy Start Version 4 compliancy, and "four primary color technology" -- in a nutshell, it's a "RGB-meet-Y for yellow" world. The LE920 flagship series comes in 52, 60, and 68-inch models with Aquomotion 240 and edge-lit LED; those are due in May with prices listed firmly as TBD. The ... (more)

Panasonic does it again, introduces 152-inch 3D 4k HDTV

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2728 days, 21 hours, 45 minutes ago
Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:42:48 AM GMT
If that gigantic HDTV above looks a few inches shy of 152-inches, its because it is. While Panasonic has shared a few details about the existence of its new biggest HDTV ever (full release after the break) it has not been shown to the public yet. We imagine it'll look a lot like its little brother pictured above, after all, it features the same 4k resolution and a relatively unobtainable price. What will make a bigger difference then the extra two inches though is the fact that this one is will display 3... (more)

Windows 7 Media Center gets Mediaroom support

Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:41:32 AM GMT
During the Microsoft keynote, Ballmer mentioned that customers of IPTV providers like AT&T U-Verse will be able to watch TV on Windows 7 PCs, but he glazed over the how. The how is Windows 7 Media Center -- according to the press release that is available after the jump -- and there's no special hardware like a tuner required. The when wasn't mentioned because it is dependent on the provider, but when they do upgrade to Mediaroom 2.0, Media Center fans will have access to all the same content as a se... (more)

If you thought the XPERIA Pureness was wild with it's meager 1.8-inch transparent screen, wait'll you get a hold of Samsung Mobile Display's prototype 14-inch notebook -- complete with what's being touted as the world's first and largest transparent OLED prototype. When the thing is off, the panel is up to 40 percent transparent (as opposed to the industry average of below twenty-five percent). Not much more to say about it (we'll let you know as soon as our friends from Korea tell us more), but there is... (more)

LG's 6.9mm thin LED-backlit LCD hands-on at CES

Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:39:34 AM GMT
Seagate has a 2.5-inch hard drive that measures 7mm thick. LG now has a big frickin' television that's even thinner. Today at the company's CES 2010 press event, the "future" of LG's TV business was briefly unveiled. At just 6.9mm thin, it's easily one of the slimmest sets we've ever had the opportunity to ogle, and when speaking with executives afterwards, they confessed that more details would flow (including a real model name and estimated pricing) later in the year. As for availability? You could act... (more)

If the box office numbers are any indication, you may be one of the roughly googillion people who have spent three hours in a darkened theater watching Avatar. And you probably didn't notice that hidden deep in the film was a subtle critique of the sedentary, stereotypical-gamer lifestyle. The New York Times reports that creator James Cameron defended the movie against anti-smoking critics, and in the process revealed the intent behind the message. Actress Sigourney Weaver's character smokes throughout t... (more)

Final Fantasy XIII May Be Last of 'This Type of Game' for Square Enix

Thursday, January 07, 2010 7:26:29 AM GMT
With Final Fantasy XIII's international release nearly upon us, it would appear that Square Enix is at something of a crossroads. Speaking with Edge, president Yoichi Wada definitely seemed to have the future on his mind. "I believe Final Fantasy XIII is going be something special, and that it's going to be well-received by the audience. But whether we are going to continue to internally create this type of game remains to be seen, because I actually feel that the team that was involved with Final Fantas... (more)

Though the surprises were sprung a little early from a quickly-pulled interview video, Microsoft's keynote tonight at the Consumer Electronics Show confirmed some long-standing rumors of coming services for the Xbox 360. The big announcement of the night had to be the new "Game Room," which had been spotted in consumer surveys last year. The Game Room is a virtual arcade for Avatars to arrange and customize, featuring classic arcade games in models of their original cabinets. Konami, Atari, and Intellivi... (more)

Wednesday, December 30, 2009 5:54:39 AM GMT
2009 had its ups and downs - lots of downs - and more than a few times the gaming community flexed its considerable muscle to tell the industry it was mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. At least, that was the theory. In practice, most of the rage this year fizzled for one reason or another. They say time heals all wounds, and that's true; but good PR certainly help (more)
