Atari E.T. Xbox documentary to premiere on November 20th

Atari: Game Over is a documentary that's part of a gaming series that'll be coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 this fall. We'd heard about it before - we've even seen photos of the digging up of the E.T. site in the desert. But now we get to see it up close and personal. This documentary will show "the untold story of the 80's tech giant and its fateful launch of E.T., the video game." Until now this documentary did not have a launch date - surprise! Now it does.

This ultra-fast Internet may beat Google Fiber to your home

This ultra-fast Internet may beat Google Fiber to your home

Google Fiber offers mind-boggling data transfer speeds, but fiber optics require a massive build-out.

The simplest, and most logical, reason for this is that Instagram views Tiiny as a possible growing threat to its dominance, and doesn't want to give it a free leg up in the ever-competing social network market.

Blumoo review: complete control from your smartphone

Blumoo review: complete control from your smartphone

Something familiar will happen to you tonight. You’ll sit down on your couch, go to turn on the TV — and curse. Probably loudly. Those remotes, all five or more, are strewn about your living room. Under a bag of chips, between the couch cushions — or who knows where. Your remotes just don’t behave. You could suffer this indignity indefinitely, or you could just get a Blumoo.

Google grabs Jetpac team for image recognition smarts

Google has snapped up the talent behind Jetpac, the iPhone app which used image recognition to figure out custom city guides based on Instagram photos shared publicly. The news is likely to mean an improvement in Google's use of automatic object tagging, though it's also the end for Jetpac's own app, which the company says will be yanked from the App Store over the next couple of days.
