Why Augur?

Why Augur?:

PR has become a much maligned industry. And perhaps there’s some fairness to the criticism. Over the last 100 years, its “two-way street” origin decayed into something designed to match broadcast media’s growth with scalable profitability.

But as a result, shifting patterns of attention…

Like it or not, Dungeon Keeper is the future of LCD gaming

Like it or not, Dungeon Keeper is the future of LCD gaming:

By me:

“There has been a lot of fuss about the new ‘free-to-play’ Dungeon Keeper on iOS and Android. For much of the gaming community, it’s a new watermark for how the freemium model is ruining their favourite passtime. But like it or not, we’re going to have to get used to it. You can bet EA is making money from it, it must be cheaper to develop and there’s a lower risk of nobody playing and sharing it with their friends.”

Quantum Dots provide an amazing super high technology performance enhancement for LCDs through a unique application of Quantum Physics. By incorporating them within the Backlight the LCDs then produce highly saturated primary colors that are similar to those produced by OLED displays, plus they also improve the brightness and power efficiency at the same time.

HARDWARE REVIEW: APPLE WEIGHS IN WITH MACINTOSH

HARDWARE REVIEW: APPLE WEIGHS IN WITH MACINTOSH:

The roughly 17-pound Macintosh comes in a square bushel-basket-size canvas tote bag with an oversized zipper. The preproduction version I saw did not sport the Apple-with-a-bite logo. The addition of this emblem could well turn the bag into a classic status symbol, and even if the computer stayed home, the bag would accompany people on the move, stuffed with picnic goodies or laundry.

It’s a great time to be a techy

It’s a great time to be a techy:

Nothing is settled on mobile. I have no idea what it will mean in 5 years time to say that I ‘installed’ an ‘app’ on an ‘Android’ ‘smartphone’. All of those terms could change completely, and with it what it means to say ‘ecosystem’ or ‘market share’.
