New Apple iPad 2 Ad

Thoughts?

Is this the end of the compact disc?

As with Lion’s release on the mac, it was only avaliable to download via the mac app store. Though you can make a boot disk of lion, you cant get one from apple themselves. As more and more computer programs and software is being released by download only, is this soon going to become the norm with all discs?

I am a fan of music and do have a fair few cds, but in a couple of years these could soon be gone, slowly being replaced by music downloading programs like iTunes or Spotify. it seems like the CD is going to be resigned to the collector, or pushed aside like vinyl records.

I, for one, am not a fan of having all of my music digitally, a cd is like a backup incase it gets lost. However, Its great that apple have made Lion only available in this way because it shows how much of a chance they are willing to take to convince people to make a move over to apple.

So to answer my question, i think were seeing the end of the compact disk in some areas, but not all.

What do you think?

MW3 zombies?

For all you zombie fans out there who are looking forward to a continuation of the fascinating COD zombie story I have bad news. Infinity ward just released that there will be no form of nazi zombies in MW3, debuting November 8. Instead they are creating a co-op section. What makes this different from MW2’s co-op section is that the objective will be to fight off many enemy waves. Unlike zombies these CPUs are stronger, smarter, and a hell of a lot faster. Also after fighting off a certain number of waves a boss will arive, the bosses can be include anywhere from a juggernaut or enemy helicopter. Other cool enemies you will need to fight off include human/dogs with c4 on their backs ready to charge. You probably ask what the point is, the main point is to earn cash which you can then use for ammo and air support.

Even though I’m a zombie fan, this sounds like hours of fun so I give it a 9 out of 10.

The c/dock

A handsome thick piece of solid walnut with either a brushed aluminum or glossy resin face plate.  The ultimate mix of modern design and convenience.  The perfect mate to my already perfect iPhone.  You will simply start your clock app of choice and slide your phone into the fully enclosed sleeve and it will seamlessly dock and begin to charge, giving you the restful sleep you deserve.  Or maybe you’ll set it up on your desk to show slides of the family while you’re at work?  Or use it as a mini flat screen to catch up on your shows?

You can pre-order yours at Kickstarter for $65 and $55, respectively.

New Android Market UI and how to get it.

The new Android Market, announced couple of day ago and I know I am late to react to that as I was just in the last phase of my exams and it has started rolling out to a small set of users who, of course, immediately shared it with the rest of the world for everyone to enjoy (or hate, depending on your reaction to the design). Here in this article, I am going to show you how you can get the update to your phone right now as the Android says, they will be rolling out this update for different phone models in upcoming days.

The new Market client is designed to better showcase top apps and games, engage users with an improved UI, and provide a quicker path to downloading or purchasing your products. For developers, the new Android Market client means more opportunities for your products to be merchandised and purchased.

 

With a great new UI, easy access to app discovery lists, a convenient purchase flow, and more types of content, we believe that the new Market client will become a favorite for users and developers alike.

If you’ve tried updating your android market using the android market application updates and have not got it yet then below is the way.

The process is quite simple :

  1. Download the Android market application using this link from your device
  2. Let it download
  3. Run the file and install it.
  4. Open it and enjoy!

I personally liked the new UI of this update! Its sleek and trendy and looks awesome. Thanks and enjoy browsing the Android market with over 2M apps and games in it. Plus, do let me know your reviews about this update. Cheers and if you don’t like the update, you can uninstall it anytime!
