"Forbes said that its Read’s job to make sure AMD doesn’t screw up its slate of new products-which includes a hush-hush effort to put its graphics chips in Sony’s still-unannounced new game console. This means that a Playstation 4 could be coming soon, and Sony has dropped NVIDIA’s chips from its console."
"A look back at two articles from 1995, touting high end computers and 'must haves.' How times have changed... ...'Memory (RAM): We seem to have convinced most manufacturers to adopt eight megabytes as standard, compared with four megabytes in 1994. Don't buy less than eight. The difference in performance between an eight megabyte machine and a four-megabyte machine can be dramatic.'"
"During a presentation at the DICE 2012 summit, Epic’s Tim Sweeney claims that the new Unreal 4 Engine requires 2.5 teraflops of power for what Epic believes the next generation of graphics running on its engine will look like. To put that into perspective, the current Xbox 360 only yields about .25 teraflops of power. This is clearly not enough to power the future of gaming with the current Xbox 360 console. Of course, you could maybe network 10 Xbox 360s together to get enough power."
"A recent Kotaku post cites "one reliable industry source" to suggest that the still-unannounced successor to Microsoft's Xbox 360 will somehow prevent used games from being played on the system. The idea remains an unconfirmed rumor, of course, but it's something that members of the game industry have floated repeatedly in the past. It's also a move that would likely find hefty support from publishers looking for a way to stop what they see as erosion of their profits thanks to used games (the reality is a bit more complicated than that, but we won't rehash that old argument here).
"Eating while gaming isn't exactly the easiest thing to do, unless you are playing a game with nauseatingly long cutscenes. You may find yourself getting food all over the place or getting killed the second you decide to set that controller down and take a bite of food. Luckily for anybody who can't seem to find the chance to take a break and eat, master tinkerer Ben Heck made the startling discovery that the top of the Xbox 360 controller seems to contour perfectly to a Hot Pocket."
"A team of Utah Valley University boffins has established that regular Facebook users tend to be a bit more sad than non-users. The reason? Well, it all seems to boil down to envy. Facebook simply offers a quick glance into the lives of others, much like the East German Stasi, and in the end many users simply don’t like what they see.
"SOPA may be dead (for now) in the U.S., but lobby groups are likely to intensify their efforts to export SOPA-like rules to other countries. With the Canadian DMCA back on the legislative agenda at the end of the month, Canada will be a prime target for SOPA style rules.
"Following up on a story previously discussed here, it now appears Eastman Kodak, the company that invented the hand-held camera, has filed for bankruptcy protection. The move, according to Kodak's news release, gives the company time to reorganize itself without facing its creditors, and Kodak said it would mean business as normal for customers.."
