Doom for graphing calculators gets color upgrade

Doom for graphing calculators gets color upgrade

Those of you running nDoom 2, the TI-Nspire CX-based graphing calculator port of doom know - when it comes to playing games in math class, there's nothing better than fragging some toxically mutated beasts in full gigantic pixel glory. What's happened here in early 2012 is that this game specifically on this calculator has taken a leap forward into the awesomeness of the future: colorization! While this may seem absurdly rudimentary for those of you using smartphones for your daily murdering of zombies, it's a great day for the calculator hordes of highschools across the country, let me tell you.

NVIDIA embraces Ice Cream Sandwich with the Transformer Prime

NVIDIA embraces Ice Cream Sandwich with the Transformer Prime

In a fully green-lit environment on the first full day of CES 2012, NVIDIA's Jen-Hsng Huang outlined their 2012 focus, and all was quad-core. The event began with Huang speaking about how they'd be moving through Tablets, a secret additional feature of Tegra 3, and vehicle integration. As tablets are, as evidence shows, the quickest selling device category in mobile history, so too will NVIDIA continue to concentrate on the category for their hero devices.

Kindle Fire gets Android 4.0 ICS port, stays relevant

Kindle Fire gets Android 4.0 ICS port, stays relevant

I've been messing around with a Kindle Fire for the past week or so as my good pal Marty picked one up pre-Christmas for the holiday stay up here in Northern Minnesota - it's been great but for the lack of Ice Cream Sandwich. That is to say, it's OK, but it's not the perfect masterpiece that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich would make it. Hackers have taken the reigns this past week and have made a port of the newest Android mobile operating system a relative reality here on this PlayBook form clone, making us once again wonder if it's worth the cheap, cheap price it costs.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Here in the LTE version of the newest Google hero phone, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (also known as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE) has not only the unique claim to running Google's newest mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first, it's also connected to the fastest network in the states, and best of all: you can go to your corner Verizon store and purchase one, unlike the international edition. All that said, you've really got the same device only ever so slightly modified for this particular carrier: Google's vanilla hero phone remains nearly as pure as its first release internationally. What you're going to get here is another perspective on the Galaxy Nexus in general, how ICS handles our day to day, and what it means to own the LTE version of this device here in the USA.

What’s the most ideal game type for mobile?

What’s the most ideal game type for mobile?

As soon as it became apparent a few years ago that the mobile platform for applications wasn't just going to be a secondary market, developers around the world pulled out their coding fingers and started typing away, creating games that have since grown to epic proportions: like Angry Birds, for example. In the game you've almost certainly played or have seen played in front of or behind you on a bus or airplane at some point, you simply pull back on a slingshot using your smartphone's touch display and let it loose, knocking down targets. A game as simple as that became so earth-shatteringly popular that the group who made it, Rovio, is creating a television show, has their own shop (and soon line of shops) containing physical merchandise, and they've made millions of dollars from the game and subsequent games alone. And it all comes back down to the fact that it feels so RIGHT to play it on your smartphone - wouldn't you say?
