Unreal Engine 3 running on Mac OS X (and images of DirectX 11 features on PC, cigarettes) {Joystiq}

Mar 2nd 2011 8:09PM @tendoboy1984

MS bought a large sum of non negotiable stocks in Apple to save the company when it was on the brink of destruction. Besides, Microsoft is in the Software business. If they can manage a sale of Office to a Mac user, thats still a sale for them. In fact, since it's for OS X they can charge more.

World of Warcraft reaches 12 million players {WoW}

yes, I'm sure Blizzard would be happy to lose 3 million customers who each pay $15 dollars a month so that you can stroke your "@@HEROIC@@" ego in Cataclysm. If the game dropped that many subscribers they'd make the next expansion so EZ mode your head would spin.

Found Footage: Apple/Microsoft throwdown at Mall of America {TUAW.com}

Oct 4th 2010 4:52PM Stay with me on this, but I don't think that the Windows Stores are there to directly compete with Apple Stores. At least not in the typical sense of units vs units. Because to be honest Microsoft has already won that one by liscensing their OS to various vendors.


What is being atttempted here is to sell their new experience. With the Zune, Xbox and Windows markets really meshing together now, and the upcoming Phones and such, their products are really starting to shine. Hell, even the beta for Internet Explorer 9 is looking promising, out performing the competition in speed tests and the like (though that's thanks in part to hardware rendering with Direct Draw). What these stores are going to do is not sell Windows or laptops/desktops, but sell the idea of a Microsoft lifestyle, with a W7Phone equipped with Xbox Live and Zune Pass, which will transition from personal devices and phones to television sets and computers. Microsoft doesn't need stores to push units, just a mindset.

Guest Post: How to assemble a hot gaming rig for Cataclysm {WoW}

Sep 13th 2010 9:05PM The typical way to get the student discount is to go to www.microsoft.com/student to get a copy (though now that the school year is full swing the cost has ramped up to $64 for 64bit Windows Professional (Still a good deal).

As for professors, they sometimes can get a free legal copy through their employer, or one at a heavily discounted rate. Don't be afraid to ask your IT dept.

Wrath of the Lich King: China's version {WoW}

Azshara: Changes and what will be missed {WoW}

Jul 11th 2010 12:13AM I just did the Fallen Hero of the Horde quests. Traveling around the world, seeing elite mobs everywhere, some world boss mobs (Yes Azuregos I want to take your treasure) and some very impressive mechanics I haven't seen in WotLK.

However I can see why they're changing it and I'm glad they are. While the quests are epic, the way they're epic is they take forever to complete. 3 hours with a level 80, and I got some greens. Weeeeehhhh :(


(P.S Azuregos stop having 910k hp pls kthnx)

Official forum changes, real life names to be displayed {WoW}

Jul 6th 2010 1:34PM I'm honestly not worried. To those who have facebook, do a quick search of your name. If you're like myself, you'll fine about 20+ people with the exact same name. I found 100. So like some people have said, it's not your social security number, its a name that is probably more common than you think.

Rock Band 3's gear priced: keytar and Pro guitar sport MIDI out, adapter lets you use any keyboard / electronic drum set {Engadget}

Jun 12th 2010 6:04PM So I think I get it now. Rockband 3 could be THE stepping point to turn these "musicians" into musicians. The controller works as the standard fare as well as the "real deal" so they hook the casuals with the basic controls, their demand for increasing difficulty brings them up to playing the new "Pro" mode, they suddenly know how to play a few songs on a guitar, they go out and buy a real one or use the Midi to write their own music. A bit of a stretch, but it is somewhat possible.

And since the controllers can be used like the previous iterations, they can play with their friends who are casuals like them since each player can get differing difficulty.

This is almost showing potential for being a guitar learning aid, giving people the inspiration, the motivation and means to learn and develop. The perfect storm for our tech integrated age.

Think Safari Reader looks familiar? That's because Apple used open source Readability code {Download Squad}

Jun 8th 2010 4:50PM While they didn't make a formal acknowledgment to the company, they did put a reference to them in their license like you said. Seeing as this is open source, I don't see why anyone should get up in arms about this. Maybe I'm just reading the post wrong, but this just feels like a drama stirring article. Great to know that the Open Source community has an impact on a pretty good browser like Safari though.
