A special treat today, folks. Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is an interactive adventure where you play a dead man trying to solve the mystery of his own murder. It's a classic film noir template overlaid with lateral puzzle solving and quirky humour, bought to you by the same team responsible for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. NO OBJECTION!
It's that magical time of year again, when everyone expects a new iPad to be right around the corner. Which in turn means an amassment of iPad 3 rumours clogging up our lives. Here's a quick guide to making sense of them.
Graphene, that single layer of carbon atoms that is the talk of wonder stuff, has just taken one massive step towards being useful and infused into your electronics. Scientists from Manchester have figured out that going 3D is the answer to graphene-infused transistors and super-speed computers.
Captain Schettino or not, I hate cruises. Being trapped in a giant floating building with three thousand people and a buffet is my idea of bloody hell. But I would love to go across the river Amazon on the ship above.
The UK loves SMS. As a nation, we regularly send over ten million texts an hour and SMS is used at all levels of society, far more so than email or voice calls. Things may not always be so rosy for SMS, however. A recent Forbes report shows that SMS usage is falling worldwide. Even the traditional SMS fest on Christmas Day was down from 2010 -- too busy tweeting "Mum and aunty Beatrice are arguing about the gravy again," were we? There are now many apps and services that will let you send short, near-instant messages to your friend's mobiles. Here's our pick of the best:
I can’t believe it’s quite this easy, but apparently Scotland Yard and the FBI converse over those crappy call-in conferencing systems, which let Anonymous log-on to check-out what they were yakking about.
Spare a thought for those poor Dyson engineers, who have nothing better to do with their time than create a hot air balloon out of some lightweight aluminium foil-like material and one of their £270 Hot space-heaters.
AMD has been going head-to-head with Intel in the PC market for years, so it's no surprise that they will be hot on Intel's heels in the mobile space, too. Yep, they have plans to design tablet CPUs. It's like two gorillas shrinking themselves to do battle in your pocket.
Camera nerds have been aflutter for weeks about a new Olympus mirrorless camera that's supposedly set for announcement any day now. The latest rumour is a full-body view of the retro-styled OM-D. If the rumour is true, the camera is going to be beautiful.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (it’s the 14th of February for those that need reminding), but we’re on the peak of a double-dip recession. So what’s a fellow to do when he’s skint, but absolutely must follow the crummy traditions of a Hallmark Holiday? How about a 7p Valentine’s Day card? That’s sure to do the trick.
Admittedly, I did spend my childhood playing with explosives. But I certainly never had as much success as 10-year-old Clara Lazen (not pictured), who accidentally created a new energy storing molecule, tetranitratoxycarbon, that could be used as an explosive.
If, like mine, your partner thinks you have a problem because you check social media and email too often, it turns out they might be right. A new study suggests that checking our phones and computers is more addictive than alcohol and cigarettes.
What do you get if you take a massive football, some tazers and two teams of obviously insane adrenaline junkies and mix them all up? Ultimate Tazer Ball that’s what; it’s the future of sport apparently.
It's been a successful morning for Motorola in Germany. So far they've managed to secure a permanent injunction against Apple's iCloud, as well as seeing the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and first-gen 3G iPad removed from the online store.
Who wants to get their greasypaws on what is effectively some free money? Of course you do. And you can, thanks to a ‘daily deal’ offer that is actually well worth the outlay for once.
