I just had a wonderful conversation/interview with the spectacular Misti Dawn. If you don’t know her, she is one of the most scandalinfamous geek/gamers you will ever know. We had a wonderful time discussing games, zombies, apple products, and more. She answered my questions along with fan questions that were sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can download the interview or listen to it after the break! Continue reading
Yesterday, Apple kicked off their annual WWDC conference in San Francisco. They had a lot to reveal, but one of the things that affects most people is the details surrounding iOS6.

This past week I encountered an issue with my 13″ Macbook. The rubber bottom started to peel away from the rest of the computer. After some google searching I found out this was a widespread issue! Apple knows of this problem and has a solution for those effected by this. You can either take it to an Apple store to be fixed for free or do it yourself. I opted to do it myself. I got my kit today (for free) and the instructions are fairly simple, but I haven’t done it yet due to laziness. However, if you have a Macbook created/purchased between 2009 and 2011 this can solve your problem. Just visit Apple’s support website here. This will allow you to do order a kit to do it on your own or direct you to an Apple store.
Rockstar has done it! They’ve given me a game that I’m really excited to play on my iPad. To help build some hype for Max Payne 3, along with giving gamers a chance to dive back into the games story, Max Payne has been released for iOS. The game has been updated with better textures, high-res graphics, and has kept its bullet timey goodness. You can buy Max Payne Mobile for $2.99 in the App Store now.
Apple has finally announced when they will be revealing the new iPad. After several months of speculation, rumors, and leaks we will finally be privy to the details. Personally, I’ve been waiting to get an iPad until the retina display rolled out and it looks like I’ll finally get my wish. Apple will be holding their press event on March 7th.

I have a love/hate relationship with concept work. On the one hand it’s an amazing look at the possibility of what could be. Throwing physics and real world constraints out the window means that the only limits are usually your imagination. Then the other shoe drops and you realize that the actual “thing” will never be as awesome as the concept.
Case in point this amazing iPad 3 video from Aatma Studio.
This is the kind of use case that comes to mind when I think of something as futuristic. From the edge to edge display, effortless use and interoperability with companion devices this screams future tech. The holographic gaming with projected controls is the kinda stuff we dreamed of as kids and are still hungrily waiting for as adults.
Let’s face it we’ve all wanted holo chess since we learned why you always let a wookie win. I’d go so far as to say we all need Star Wars holo chess in our lives, and If you don’t want that then you can stay the hell outta my future.
