The Financial Risk to Launching a New Console

To many gamers, 3D seems like a gimmick – but if the general entertainment market moves towards 3D, it would be foolish for consoles to not at least be 3D capable. Currently, the only next generation console looking for release in the near future is Nintendo’s offering. As with the Wii, it doesn’t appear that Nintendo are directly competing with either Microsoft or Sony – looking instead to solidify their position with the more casual audience with the Wii U. This infographic by ladbrokesgames.com  details some of the interesting aspects of Sony’s financial motivations in the technological arms-race that is console development.

Of particular interest are the rumours of an always-on approach to DRM (or the ability to use purchased games on a single console) – effectively killing the used games market. Interestingly, Ubisoft (pioneers, for good or bad of “working exactly as intended” always-on DRM) were recently seen to … Read the rest

The latest iPhone 5 rumours have taken a surprising turn.

It’s iPhone season again, just in case you hadn’t noticed. We’ve been bombarded by hundreds of supposed leaks, photos, videos, rumours and educated guesses. All of these have been promising additions, changes, new features and the like, but it seems in recent days like the rumours have been going in the opposite direction.

Let’s take a sample. First, after months of speculation, it seems that Apple has finally chosen not to include NFC in their new iPhone 5. There was a wide assumption that they would do so, seeing as Passbook e-wallet functionality has been baked into the new iOS 6 software. It’s a feature that the iPhone’s main rivals include as standard. The choice not to include it seems like a regressive step. The technology is certainly ready even if the customers aren’t. It isn’t even prohibitively expensive, so they can’t claim it’s to do with keeping costs down. … Read the rest

The Future of Digital Cameras

Digital cameras have so far stayed out of the smartphone sphere. While smartphones have cameras and social sharing features, digital cameras have remained purely for photography. Until now.

A New Era of Cameras

Samsung has recently released news of their Galaxy camera, which is basically a digital camera in the front, and a smart phone from the back.

The 16.3 megapixel Galaxy is powered by Andriod 4.1 Jelly Bean, and has 3G, 4G, and dual-band WiFi connectivity abilities. This allows users access to a whole range of abilities that were previously closed to digital camera users. Andriod allows users to immediately edit their photos in Photoshop Touch, or whatever photo editing apps they choose from the Play Store, on the 4.77 inch HD touch display, which has 308 pixels per inch.

After editing, users can immediately upload their photos to their favorite social media platform, making the shooting, editing, sharing … Read the rest

Why Your Website Bounce Rate is Too High

Most web masters know what bounce rate is and how it can negatively affect a website. Obviously the higher your bounce rate the worse your website is performing. Google analytics provides great insight to bounce rate and will give you the exact percentage of users leaving, the time they spend on your page and what pages they leave from. If your bounce rate is any higher than 50% your website is underperforming. The ideal range for most well performing websites is somewhere between the 30 to 40% range.  In this article we are going to go over some common causes of high bounce rates.

Your Site Isn’t Mobile

How to develop for iOS

Considered the holy grail of mobile app development, developing an app for the iOS platform is not as impossible as some may thing. Granted, it is harder than developing for Android or Windows Phone, but it is still doable.

The first step to developing for iOS is to decide what you will be developing and how you are going to go about developing the app. If you’re not an experienced programmer, now may be a good time to put your ideas back into the reality glass. If you don’t have thousands of dollars, developing an Angry Birds or Words with Friends style game may be dreaming a bit too big. Pick an idea that will not cost too much time and resources. If you are completely naïve, get some expert opinions from a forum online.

Once you have decided what your app will do, it’s time to get the programming … Read the rest

Some “Secret” Benefits to Video Games

If you’ve ever been on your computer playing a game and looked to the corner only to discover that you’ve just lost two hours to Farmville or World of Warcraft, I’m sure you’d love to believe that there is some redeeming value to the time you’ve lost. On August 3rd, PBS MediaShift released an article claiming that video games teach “a new literacy.” And while I do not personally game, I agree to a certain extent – there are hidden benefits to playing video games.

 

Ryan, my husband, games, and given the trend, I would be willing to bet that my son will become one as soon as he is of age.
