Grand Theft Auto III on Android

gta3-boxshotIf you are a fan of the gritty sand-box style action game "Grand Theft Auto III" From Rockstar Games, and you have one of the following Android devices listed below, then you are in for a treat very soon. Rockstar Games is reportedly going to port their award-winning and highly successful game to a limited amount of Android devices. It’s pretty amazing to think that one of the most advanced PS2 games is now playable from a device that fits in your pocket. That just gives us a bright vision of the future where we can experience holographic virtual environments projected onto our retinas.

Okay, so that’s probably still a ways off, but you can’t blame me for being forward thinking. I will have no problem with being lost in a virtual "Elder Scrolls 10" on my "Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime 12 SE" when I am in my 80’s.
Here’s a list of compatible Android devices:

  • Droid X2
  • HTC Evo 2 (Probably the EVO 3D, or is it some unknown future device?)
  • LG Optimus 2X
  • Motorola Atrix
  • Samsung Galaxy S2
  • Acer Iconia
  • Asus Eee Pad
  • Motorola Xoom
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Bose announce the OE2 and OE2i audio headphones


Bose has introduced its next-generation of on-ear headphones: the OE2 and OE2i audio headphones.  The OE2 and OE2i headphones deliver demonstrably better audio performance than their predecessors, and feature an updated look and design.  Music is reproduced with improved depth and clarity, and the new contoured styling creates a closer, more comfortable fit.
The OE2i headphones come with an inline remote and microphone that lets owners interact with select Apple products, including the latest iPhone, iPod, iPad, MacBook, and MacBook Pro models.  Users can easily control volume, tracks, voice applications, and switch between music and calls on an iPhone.  The OE2 headphones come with a standard audio cable.  In every other way, the OE2i and OE2 headphones are identical, reproducing all genres of music accurately.
Bose’s three decades of continuous on-head audio research enables a distinct performance difference in the industry.  The OE2 and OE2i headphones feature an enhanced proprietary TriPort® acoustic headphone structure.  With redesigned and newly tuned ear cup ports, audio reproduction is more balanced and natural.  There is no manufactured “boost” across the frequency range; low notes are full and rich, and mid-high frequencies are smooth and clear.

RIM address the BIS outage – Video

Screen Shot 2011-10-13 at 13.34.27

It has been a rather rocky and somewhat embarrassing week for Research in Motion. Unless you had your head buried in the sand you will be aware that BlackBerry Smartphones in much of the world have been without data for three days. Here in the UK the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) was restored early this morning so users are pretty much back to normal.

RIM have today released a video where Co-CEO Mike Lazaridis explains and apologizes about the issues they have been having.
Many have criticized RIM for not being more open and forthcoming with the BIS problems, so it is encouraging to see the main man hold his hands up and say they are sorry and are doing everything they can to fix the problem.

You can see the video below:
