Why I’m OK with the Death of Consoles

I’ve been a gaming fan my entire life. From the old days of arcades on through to today’s iPhone gaming, I’ve found a way to incorporate video games into my life. Without them, I don’t think I’d feel as entertained as I am right now.

A key component in my video game love over the years has been consoles. From the Nintendo Entertainment System through the Sega Genesis and countless devices that came after, consoles have been the cornerstone of my gaming experience.

Red Bull Supersonic skydive a go [UPDATE: Delay for today!]

Red Bull Supersonic skydive a go [UPDATE: Delay for today!]

Today is the day that Felix Baumgartner was originally meant to jump out of a pressurized cabin being carried by a balloon up 23 miles above the surface of the planet. This jump is already a record-breaking jump even before he lands, with 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters between him and Earth breaking a record that's existed for more than 50 years. This jump that's being sponsored by Red Bull also has Baumgartner breaking another record - he's becoming the first human to break the sound barrier in freefall - that's an estimated 690 miles / 1,110 kilometers per hour. UPDATE: The jump has been delayed for today on account of gusty winds, cancelled until tomorrow at best. Seeya then!

How Will Bill Gates Be Remembered?

How Will Bill Gates Be Remembered?

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was a special person. He was able to combine some of the finer elements of the industry into products that made users worldwide drool. And along the way, he established himself as one of the most important figures in the technology industry. To say his contributions to the industry were significant would perhaps be too simple a summation of such an important figure.

RIM’s Q2 shake-up: Reawakening dragon or death rattle?

RIM’s Q2 shake-up: Reawakening dragon or death rattle?

RIM's painful love song to developers had left us prepared for the worst, so a rise in users and a glimmer of financial hope in Q2 2013 numbers came as no minor surprise. Admittedly, shrinking your losses to $235m versus $518m is most generously described as "slightly less terrible" than the quarter before, but the market seized on a little Canadian good news and RIM's stock price jumped as much as 25-percent in US trading. RIM's challenge, though, remains clear if you take anything more than a glancing view at the latest figures.

Samsung patent infringement ruled “willful” vs Apple

Samsung patent infringement ruled “willful” vs Apple

As the reading of the verdict continued on this afternoon in the Apple vs Samsung trial here in the USA, it appeared at first that Samsung was in for a world of hurt. Dozens of devices were found guilty of infringing upon Apple patents, devices from the start of the Samsung dip into the Android universe right up until about a year ago with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 - so many infringements that it seemed like the company wouldn't be able to stay afloat - but it wasn't over until it was over.

The military, in particular, is making an ever-increasing use of robots for dangerous tasks such as clearing buildings where enemy soldiers may be hiding and searching for bombs. In the enterprise space, robots are being increasingly used to help a smaller number of humans patrol a larger area. A company called Gamma Two Robotics has announced a new robot called the Vigilus Mobile Camera System aimed at enterprise security.
