It's day two of Comic Con and our shoes are already in need of new treading. Not to mention, it's pretty crowded in that convention center. Fortunately, we got some pretty neat photos out of it, so check them out!
If you love Legos, then maybe you've heard about the upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online game, Lego Universe, currently in development by NetDevil. The game takes place in an alternate universe with tons of Lego minifigures who are on the path to seek the last bit of pure imagination. The antagonists in this virtual world are the Stromlings, who are controlled by a dark force known as Maelstrom, and who can turn innocent minifigures to the bad side. The game is officially available to play on October 26 of this year. Check it out in the video below!
We took some time out with Stephen Saiz, Director of Marketing over at Disney Interactive Studios, to discuss what the company is doing with the TRON app for the iPhone and what mega fans of the franchise have to look forward to.
This morning, we go to hang out in Flynn's Arcade and relive the magic of TRON. Check out the mondo photo gallery after the cut to get a complete walkthrough of our day with TRON, plus a few photos of TRON himself, Bruce Boxleitner (who, by the way, loves his iPhone).
We’re not sure what Apple’s got their App Store elves on these days, but for the second time this week they’ve pushed out an update to iBooks -- this time apparently to squash a bug introduced in the earlier version.
We've only been here for a short time, but already we've seen so much! Take a look at some of the photos we've managed to snap on our quick walk through the convention hall this morning, and stayed tuned for more photos later--and some videos, too!
You’d think that the iPad would be old news by now after being released in the U.S. back in April, but don’t tell that to the buyers waiting in long lines in nine countries where it went on sale for the first time Friday -- for them, it’s launch day!
In honor of Comic Con, we've put together a list of some of the finest comic viewing apps this side of Gotham City. Sift through these timeless apps and desktop software to fully immerse your inner comic book geek, and then shy away when your friends stare are you with disdain for professing you have human super powers because you were bitten by a mosquito. Then again, they're probably just doing so because a human-mosquito combo doesn't sound very frightening, now does it?
Considering how wired we are, the simple act of sharing a file with a coworker is way more complicated than it needs to be. If I ask Susie to grab a screenshot for a review, we always have to pause to figure out how she should send it. Should she email it to me, IM the file over, or put it up on the server? Where on the server should she put it? It’s a huge waste of time when you consider that all we’re trying to do is share a file. CloudApp aims to simplify the process of quickly sharing files and web links, either with your coworkers, or with friends on social networks like Twitter or Facebook.
Since the early days of the Mac OS, most users have avoided the Services menu, largely because of what used to be found there: a bewildering, ever-growing mess of options, submenus, and shortcuts. But with Snow Leopard, the Services menu got a major revamp, making it contextual to the application you’re using, as well as configurable. Once you know how to take advantage of its useful actions, you’ll save yourself lots of time.
Apple just can’t seem to catch a break on the iPhone 4 (except when it comes to profit, that is) -- the company announced today that manufacturing problems are delaying the white model of the handset yet again.
As we mentioned earlier, Apple promised to make its free iPhone 4 case program available later this week -- and that time has arrived. In a unique twist, in order to claim your free iPhone 4 case, you first have to download an app to your device, which then lets you select the case of your choice.
Apple’s been pouring its design magic into handhelds lately, but now the lowly Mac mini joins the ranks of unibody hotness, complete with a glossy, almost liquid-looking black Apple logo on top. The smooth aluminum brick has zero screws or visible seams, just a round black hatch on the bottom that pops off with a twist, letting you upgrade the included 2GB of DDR3 memory to a maximum of 8GB. Gone and not missed is the sweaty pleasure of prying open a previous-generation mini with a putty knife.
Perhaps sensing that they’re reaching a peak point in the future where consumers are concerned, Apple has started to focus more attention on small businesses, if recent job postings in search of engineers to put together systems aimed at such clients is to be believed.
Users proclaim 1Password as one of the best Mac utilities ever made, and that joy has rightfully spread to the iPhone/iPod touch and more recently, the iPad, Windows and even Android. The desktop version just got a major new update with a long list of great new features, capped by using Dropbox to sync between the different versions.
