The next upgrade to Apple’s iPhone will have a strong focus on gaming, analysts and developers agree.
That’s because the gaming market is an increasingly juicy segment of the mobile multimedia space — and it’s one that Apple’s phenomenally successful iPhone is well-positioned to dominate.
“The iPhone and iPod Touch are becoming a major new handheld gaming platform, and if you look at the App Store and look at what’s doing well, that’s reflecting,” said Bart Decrem, CEO of Tapulous, developer of the popular Tap Tap Revenge iPhone game. “I would look forward to improvements in the device as a gaming platform both for the phone and iPod Touch.” (Read more HERE)
I say definitely no, Don’t pull a Tony…
Two New Zealand prisoners who were handcuffed together as they fled a courthouse foiled their own getaway when they ran to opposite sides of a light pole, slammed into each other and fell to the ground. Jailers nabbed them as they struggled to their feet. Their escape on Wednesday was captured by a CCTV camera at Hastings District Court on New Zealand’s North Island. The footage shows the two men trying to make a break for it – but apparently forgetting they were joined at the wrist. (via Neatorama)
Kellogg’s is testing out the idea of making cereal boxes shorter and wider to save room in your cupboard and fit more on store shelves. I like the idea because my wife cannot reach the top shelf where the cereal currently resides and now she can have her Raisin Bran Crunch whenever she wants.
The car was actually done in sharpie markers on the paint and then finished with a clear coat for protection. It took about 2 weeks total. Prestige (Lamborghini Miami) definitely shocked a lot of people when this car was first seen in California during the Concorso Italiano/Pebble Beach week. See more images HERE.
The World’s Smallest Postal Service (WSPS) is a teeny tiny transcription service and roaming post office based in the San Francisco Bay Area and also available online.
Lea Redmond is the Postmaster, setting up her tiny mobile office in cafes and shops where passers-by can write a letter and have it turned into a “world’s smallest letter.” The letter ($8.00) is transcribed on a miniature desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender’s initial pressed into it, packaged up with a magnifying glass in a glassine envelope, and finished off with a large wax seal. It is a double delight: for both the sender and the recipient, and the WSPS is very happy to provide this important service to the world.
Check the calendar to find out the schedule and whereabouts of the WSPS, or peruse the website and order letters online for a virtual experience. The WSPS is also available for special events and parties.
Batman now requires Depends in his utility belt and Thor needs glucosamine just to grasp his hammer. Below is an artist’s vision on the retirement of super heroes.
Matthijs van Heijningen will direct a prequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 horror-thriller The Thing.
The studio has set “Battlestar Galactica” executive producer Ron Moore to write the script.
The new project borrows heavily from the John W. Campbell Jr. short story “Who Goes There,” the basis of the Carpenter film and 1951 Howard Hawks original The Thing From Another World.
It is set in a Norwegian camp and chronicles how the alien was first discovered and overcame the inhabitants of that camp.
There’s a ton of hard work that goes into the editing of a movie. But even the editors can get a little careless at times. If you’re working with thousands of frames, sometimes you overlook a thing or two. The mistakes can be minor, and at other times the mistakes can be quite obvious. Check out 10 movies mistakes HERE.
Here’s a neat little report on the most ticketed cars of 2008 compiled by a third party research group for the insurance companies…
ISO Quality Planning, a company specializing in helping insurance companies identify risk, has compiled a list of the most heavily ticketed vehicles on the road, and lead feet everywhere can check it out.
The group analyzed traffic data on 1.7 million drivers and established the probability of a driver of a given line of vehicles being ticketed. The Hummer and Scion tC dominated the list, receiving 463% and 460% over the average, respectively. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Jaguar XJ sedan and the Chevrolet Suburban attracted a mere 11% and 16% of expected tickets. Given that both the Hummer and the Jaguar are high-cost vehicles, it flips the idea that a huge price tag automatically means more police attention.
Some viewers have already gotten a glimpse of this image, as it’s the same as the cover for Music soundtrack, but this is the final poster for director Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. Opening in conventional and IMAX theaters on March 6, the graphic novel adaptation stars Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Patrick Wilson.
