“It’s a good size, really,” iPhone owners have told Apple. “It’s OK that it’s small. It’s more about how you use it,” they added reassuringly. But the insecure company isn’t having any of it. It’s paying attention to those screen enhancement spam emails and listening to those late-night “marital aid” radio commercials. And it’s obsessed with getting bigger.
When DVR first entered our homes, commercials pretty much got the boot out the back door. The ability to speed through ads on our saved shows not only sheltered us from the mind-controlling scepter of the ad wizards, but freed up a bunch of time for us to do other things — Like watching more TV.
Here’s how the news cycle has gone for gamers who are into the FX biker gang show Sons of Anarchy: There’s gonna be a game based on the show! (Yay!) It’s gonna be a junky advergame that plays on browsers (Boo!) Just kidding, plans for the crappy game have been dumped. Now there’s a real game coming. (Yay!)
It’s so tough to find a job out there that no gimmick is too desperate or pathetic. Just look at a guy from Minneapolis who was so hard up for a job that he blew his meager funds for some face time on an electronic billboard, begging someone — anyone — to hire him.
Let’s get one thing out of the way — Just because we subscribe to HBO doesn’t mean we’re made of money. Sure, you can subscribe to the premium channel in the normal way, but we just call up our cable company, threaten to move to DirecTV because it offered us free HBO on a flyer, and accept a 6-month trial of the show in exchange for staying with our current provider.
You can’t really blame her for being addicted to your awesomeness. It’s understandable that she is unable to stop calling and texting and begging you to take her back. Neither firm requests to stop harassing you, nor blocking her number, does the trick. It’s time to go nuclear and change your phone number.
Tablets are great and all, but one major, near-unforgivable way they’ve always fallen short is their inability to dispense beer. Finally, KegDroid — which lets you gush out brews via a Motorola Xoom — is here to fix that dreadful problem.
The fact that a game is great on a DS doesn’t mean its iOS port will be as impressive, or even playable. Some people yearn for Nintendo-sanctioned Mario Kart or Metroid to come to mobile, but that prospect sickens us. Some games just require buttons. Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, though, is on the opposite end of the spectrum. It plays as though it was built from the ground up for iStuff.
When you’re playing the 3DS game Mario Kart 7 online, and a bunch of people vote for Wuhu Mountain Loop, you feel like the victims in ‘A Clockwork Orange’ when the Droogs start to surround them in a back alley. The track is plagued with an exploit that lets players jump off a cliff and skip half the course, screwing over anyone who plays fair.
In a conversation that seemed to be a pointed jab at friendly rival Capcom, a producer working on ‘Tekken Tag Tournament’ said any characters locked on the disc will be given away for free. Remember that Capcom infamously charged gamers for such content in ‘Street Fighter X Tekken.’
