iOS 5 comes this fall!

Like the version number, there are 5 new extraordinarily impressive features, of course along with many other minors. The one i'm most excited about is the long waited release of notifications, similar to android where rather than bugging your screen, it harmlessly appears at the top, allowing the swipe to ignore, a swell as appearing on the Lock screen and a separate app with it all together. iMessage, similar to BBM on the blackberry, does what you expect to all iDevices under internet connection, which is appealing. Newsstand is like the iBooks application but with magazines and newspapers, also giving the opportunity for a subscription update. Twitter is now integrated in to your apps, such as safari and maps, where under settings you sign in and it allows you to post updates such as websites or positions straight from the app you are in. Lastly we have the new iCloud integrated in to iOS 5 where you can store all your content on all your devices, up to 5gb free, including mail, documents, Music, camera roll and other application information. This allows you to wirelessly purchase them to your device. Other new features and improvements do include a new reminders tweak, upgraded apps such as photos, safari, mail and game-center. For more information view the apple website here.

Minecraft arrives to iOS and Android

The 2009 Java based game, that i must say took days out of my time when the new alpha was released early 2011. Now the mobile version is being talked about, the Xperia play version will be different in terms of interface through the toggles to using the touch screen on other iOS and android devices. There has not been any exact relase date or pricing but i know its soon, more information will be said in the upcoming E3. Till then are you looking forward to it? Do you still play Minecraft? How will the interface go about and how similar it will be to the desktop version, we don't know.

Duke Nudem - Play your way to get girls

No you didn't read the title wrong, shout outs to Boob tube for getting right in there releasing a Duke Nukem like flash game where to see the nude hot chicks you gotta kill some aliens. Sound fun? It sure is, but i must say its rather hard, but clearly very rewarding. When you get to the reward page and you really just cant be bothered to complete them, Type DK at the screen, then with the cheat code as DKITEMS. Getting all the photo shoot, but if you want the videos you gotta play the game fair. Play it now, tell me what you thought!

Preview of Sony's NGP

What i like to refer to as the PSP version 2 is known as the Next Gen Portable. As you can see in the picture to the left its a Touchscreen display, I'm unsure about the dimensions but i know its a good size and ultra slim, so theres nothing to worry about there. You still get the usual keys and analogue but also now with an accelerometer, same as the PlayStation move. It comes with a resolution of 960x544 covering a OLED 5" screen. Giving it a vivid display, its not HD like most devices now but its outstandingly fast processor and Graphics make up for it. The specifications include a Quad-Core cortex A9 processor. We know this is good because it just used a bunch of big words and letters, well it defiantly better than its most recent competitor, Nintendo 3DS. Its new features outweigh its predecessors with a dual camera and connectivity of Wi-Fi, 3G and GPS. The release date or price isnt clear for this product but it is said to come during the 'holidays' which could be Christmas, well i hope so! I assume the price would be about $200, that seems about right, doesn't it? Tell me what you think, are you going to get it? An idea to put under the Christmas tree, or not? 

Have we found the new iPhone.

Electronista saw this as the new iPhone 5 case. What this shows us is a larger 'edge to edge' layout, giving us a better view of the actual screen. What you will also notice is the split between the camera and the flash at the back of the mobile device. How this helps improve picture quality, i dont know, but its something different, of course the software looks different, could this be the new iOS 5? Some describe it to be similar to the iPad layout of applications. However we do know from previous news from AT-T that the release of it will be beyond July, so its still unsure of the actual date. We are not sure on the accuracy of this photo, we are asking you opinion, what do you think of all this? what would you like to see in the new iPhone?
