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. They have made a lot of changes including kicking Google Maps to the curb. Get all the details after the break. Continue reading
It’s been a long day of going through all of the fake announcements on the interweb. The internet is full of companies like ThinkGeek and Kodak announcing things like a wizard’s hoodie, a kodak printer that prints kittens, among many other things. So to make ourselves sane again we recorded episode 5. Here’s what we discussed:
- Taposé: Courier comes to iPad
- Paper is an amazing iPad app that’s free
- Harry Potter series now available in ebook format
- Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection
- New Game + Mode leading to lack of gameplay?
- April Fools: Cartoon Network taunts us with Toonami
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.

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.

So Mass Effect Infiltrator is launching alongside Mass Effect 3 next week and I personally can’t wait. I’m a huge Mass Effect fan and will take more of it anyway I can get it. On a related note the game ties back into your console based ME experience by relying on EA’s Origin service. I don’t particularly like the idea of services like Origin or Online passes but can understand there value. After playing the new SSX (great game) and seeing how the service is leveraged to help create a cross platform experience with consoles and iOS I figure it can’t be all bad.
