It's not often we get an extraterritorial visitor here on the good old Earth. But according to NASA, on November 8th, Asteroid 2005 YU55 will make a pass inside the Moon's orbit, and scientists are not wasting the opportunity to study it up close as it "whooshes" by us.
I like playing games, but I am fussy and finicky about the money I spend on games. I have to have already played it in some form or another, or it needs to appeal to me visually, or have a lot of word of mouth. And if there are videos of it on YouTube showing it off, then I can really check it out and get into it, if I like it. Minecraft is one of those games that hooked me.
I'm a Dad, and want my kid to be safe this Halloween. I don't know a parent who doesn't. To help keep kids safe, the New York State Division of Criminal Justice is helping with an application they created for Facebook to help you find Sex Offenders, so you can stay away from their homes.
The first computer I ever owned was a Commodore 64. It ran at about 2 MHz and had 64K, that's kilobytes, not megabytes, to run your games and programs. I thought it was was the coolest thing going. Till the Amiga come along. Commodore's next step in computers. And for a while, Amiga was right up there with Mac and PCs. But then Commodore went belly up and Amiga faded from sight, but didn't totally die. It just, hibernated.
Still recovering from a crash of it's messaging servers I talked about last week, Blackberry owner Research in Motion, has revealed some details of it's new operating system for it's Playbook tablet and future Blackberry smart phones, that they say bridges the gap between Blackberry OS, at it's developers conference. But is it enough to help them over come their drop in sales and lost of market share?
If you have a Blackberry smart phone, then you may be one of the many experiencing an outage of Blackberry's messaging service. This outage started 3 days ago in Europe, and has now reached North America. This outage affects tens of millions worldwide, especially in the Middle East where Blackberry is very popular.
The big day for many iOS device users is tomorrow. iOS 5 is scheduled to be released and iCloud will then be available for people to using. iCloud will be Apple's bigger jump into Cloud based computing. It was announced a few weeks after Amazon announced it's Cloud based service. And with Microsoft also going Cloud, it's going to be a 3 way fight. Who will win?
I have been trying to write this story for hours now. It’s not hard to talk about someone like Steve Jobs and recite facts about him. Yes, he pioneered how we consume digital content and how we buy our digital music as well as how we use computers and much more. And while it could be considered corny by some for me to say this, he touched lives all over the world. Just look at Twitter and Facebook. One of those lives he touched, is mine.
I'm releasing this a little early this morning as at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, Apple will be starting it's "Let's Talk iPhone" media event. What they will announce is all still rumor and speculation, as Apple has released no information on it other than there is going to be a press event about iPhones. So we'll just go over some of the rumors of what it could be.
Imagine it as an old west town, with tumble weeds blowing across a deserted street in the middle of town. Two figures stand in the middle, about 50 feet apart. On one side is the Apple iPad, sheriff of the town, on the other side, the new upstart Amazon's Kindle Fire. There's gonna be a shoot out!
One of the most iconic things seen in the TRON movies is the Lightcycle. I remember seeing that in the original as a kid and thinking, I want one of those! Then the sequel came out with a new design that is even more cooler then the original. And now, you have a chance to ride a real Lightcycle.
