Those of you living in Australia and New Zealand will be happy to hear that you're only days away from being able to purchase a Samsung Q1 Ultra Mobile PC. According to a press release that we received today, it will be available within the next 3 days.
Craig Pringle links to a recent addition to Toshiba's support pages, a price-guide for the various upgrades they'll be offering for users currently running Windows XP who'd like to move to Vista on its release. Depending on what current version you're running you'll either pay just shipping and handling or that plus a fee.
Don't forget that these prices are in Australian dollars, not US! There's a list of Vista-compatible notebooks and Tablet PCs on their site too, so you can buy now without the fear that your shiny new toy will be running an old-hat system early next year (subject to Microsoft shipping-slips!)
Kinect Sports Rivals takes Kinect seriously, in a way that no game for the Xbox One yet has. It’s absurd that the Xbox One’s Kinect hadn’t been utilized to the extent that Sports Rivals makes use of it now. Here the developers at Rare and the teams responsible for this game at Microsoft Studios give the platform a good kick in the pants.
In what maybe one of the biggest yet at the same time least publicized hacking incidents, the forums of Boxee.tv has been hacked and the fruits of those efforts have been publicized. The security breach yielded information about 158,128 users, including data that can be used to possibly comprise the users' other accounts.
Having had some great response to our initial investigation into the creation of the 2-story-tall Titan touring Berlin this gaming season, we followed up with the makers at Daniel’s Wood Land. The second model - and perhaps the more popular here in the USA since it's made several appearances stateside - is the "Reacher". This model is a bit shorter than the other due to its aim: capturing pilots for photo opportunities.
It’s now been made clear that the game Wolfenstein: The New Order will not only be a worldwide launch of a game, but a simultaneous worldwide launch as well. In North America, Europe, and Australia too, you’ll find this game releasing on May 20th, 2014. Also pushed today was the first gameplay trailer - right off the bat and we’re already in the game - and it looks terrifying.
Microsoft has announced some new apps are coming for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One game consoles. The new apps will give Xbox gamers something to do when they don't feel like playing Titanfall or some other game. If you are a baseball fan, one of the additions will make you very happy.
There are all sorts of uses for drone aircraft in the civilian world. You can use them to shoot aerial footage of your home or business. I know several people that use drones to film cars at the racetrack. Typically, when people think of drones, they think of military or law enforcement use only. The strangest law enforcement drone we have seen is the stun-gun drone that can stun people into submission.
The American Bar Association has been very concerned regarding the attorney-client communications and the sanctity of this privilege, particularly in light of the NSA surveillance debacle that got leaked to the world. The concerns stems from the recent revelations that NSA had allowed an Australian intelligence agency to tap into the communications between an Indonesian client and its American law firm.
