I don't think any of us though there was a redeeming quality about Anonymous and the way they hack credit card information and other personal details about people and then offered it up publically. Not too long ago, the hacker collective took on a project that had some redeeming qualities in an effort to out pedophiles online that were looking at child porn online.
The death of MySpace seemed near as News Corp. was rumored to either offload the platform or shut it down completely before this Thursday---its fiscal year end---to get the money losing property off its books. Thankfully, today a deal was reached to sell the property to Specific Media for $35 million, a disappointing number compared to the $100 million target and the original $600 million purchase price back in 2005. But, nonetheless, there is new hope today for MySpace, as it transitions to new hands and adds a celebrity stakeholder.
We weren't the only ones feeling a whole lot of love for the HTC Sensation - and its T-Mobile Sensation 4G cousin - but a report earlier this week suggesting the smartphone suffered "death grip" style signal issues threatened to sour the phone's flagship reputation. We've been chasing HTC for an official statement, and the company has just come through: perhaps unsurprisingly, the official line on whether the Sensation suffers from an antenna issue is "No."
Remember when Steve Jobs told everyone that the iPhone 4 had to be held correctly to avoid signal loss and dropped calls? Well, it looks like that same "death grip" problem may be affecting the HTC Sensation. When the Sensation is held in a certain way, it loses signal as well as its Bluetooth and WiFi connection.
The iCloud is not only usurping MobileMe and sounding really awesome at this point, it's also introducing a new Photo Stream feature that will bring your photos to the cloud. Right now, when you take a picture with your iPhone, its difficult to transfer it over to your iPad without first syncing to your desktop iTunes. Well, that's all going to change.
The moment of truth is finally here. The iCloud has been revealed after months of speculation. And one of the main questions that piqued many of our minds was what would happen to Apple's MobileMe device syncing product. Well, its official now. MobileMe is dead.
I suppose you could call this game more of a race and kill game, along the lines of Twisted Metal, if you know what I mean - does it sound like the kind of game you'd be seeing birds flying around in? Heck no! That's why we found it utterly baffling when @Rovio spoke of "Mighty Eagle" aka the pay-for-help element in the original Angry Birds game appearing here in this new game for iOS, a remake of the 1996 original, Death Rally GDC 2011. Thusly your humble narrator inquired on what the heck was going on, to which we received word that Angry Birds wouldn't be appearing in the game, but that Mighty Eagle would, aiding players in their tasks at hand. Oh eagle! Why weren't you around when I was trying to beat Final Fantasy 7!? Not even born yet.
Razer has been unveiling lots of special edition mice and keyboards over the last few months. The latest of these special editions is a mouse to go along with the Dragon Age II video game for serious fans of the title. The mouse has all the specs that we know and love from the normal DeathAdder with a red dragon on the top of the mouse and the red II.
The Chinese government has just sent out a joint notice to gaming companies, demanding that they provide parents with a method of monitoring, limiting and- if necessary- cutting off their child's access to the game. The Ministry of Public Security and seven other departments signed on to the notice, which has a deadline of March 1.
The so-called death grip issue some HTC HD7 owners have complained about has prompted an official comment from the company, who basically reckon that any device can suffer from the way it's being held. "It is inevitable that a phone's signal strength will weaken a little when covered in its entirety by a user's palm or fingers," an HTC spokesperson told Computer Weekly.
