Leonary Nemoy's Final Voyage

Everyone on the planet seems to know who Lenoard Nemoy is, and it is entirely thanks to the success of Star Trek and everything involved with it. It is a career setting that has been constant since the premiere in 1966, but after 44 years in Star Trek and 60 years in the industry, Nimoy is calling it quits.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Nimoy said,

Activision and Bungie Link-up for Ten Years

Activision and Bungie Link-up for Ten Years

Activision just lost all the important people from their Infinity Ward studio, so it only makes sense that they announced to the world this week that they will be teaming up with Bungie on a ten-year publishing deal. Bungie will be bringing games to platforms of the unknown apparently, because they really didn't announce anything else other than the fact that they will not be exclusive developers for the Xbox 360 and that the deal was in the works for about nine months.

Rest assure though, that even after all the dust settles from the Infinity Ward fallout, the announcement mentioned that Bungie will remain in total control of all of its upcoming titles.

Microsoft Admits the Courier is Real, Then Destroys Our Hopes and Dreams

Our visions of a future where there could be a DSi-type device with an operating system, that was larger, faster and more useful were acknowledged, then very quickly dashed as Microsoft finally opened their tight-lipped mouths about the Courier project. The dual-screen tablet has been something we have been longing for Microsoft to actually manufacture, however, it seems that won't be happening anytime soon.

Frank Shaw, Microsoft's Vice President of corporate communications released this in a statement:

Flash 10.1 for Android in June

Flash 10.1 for Android in June

I know, you saw the word Flash and thought that I was going to mention Apple. I can promise I'm not going to talk about Apple vs the tech world right now. Instead, I'm going to tell you about how Google and Adobe are trying to become best friends in the e-sandbox.

Last week, Adobe's Chief Technical Officer Kevin Lynch confirmed in his blog that Flash will be heading to the Android platform in June. He also mentioned about Adobe's tactic to move away from Apple and their devices, and instead plan to bring Flash to any and everything non-Apple, such as Google, RIM, HP/Palm, Microsoft, Nokia and several others.

The Force is Strong With This Game

The Force is Strong With This Game

Another week means another update from our friends at Bioware concerning their MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, and this week they pulled out the big guns.. quite literally. We received yet another video documentary, not on the game being the first fully voiced MMO or the actual integration of the fourth pillar but on something we are actually interested in... combat!

So far it seem that the forum community has people running in the streets for joy and others shivering in fear at the footage we all witnessed. It seems the consensus for the skeptics is that it just looks to much like World of Warcraft's combats. My reply to said skeptics is you are all morons. The video speaks for itself; it looks like you are actually in the movies, choreographed saber fights, blocking blasterbolts, using jetpacks, shooting around corners, you name it and it's there. Some of the more exciting footage contains a bounty hunter charging at an opponent with assistance from their jetpack, or seeing a couple Jedi blocking blaster bolts left and right like there is nothing to it.

Microsoft's New Beta, Fix it Center

Late last week, Microsoft subtly launched a new beta service, the Fix it Center. This program already contains 300 fixes, which will help users figure out and solve problems with their Windows PCs.

Upon installation of the Fix it Center client, it automatically downloads the latest troubleshooters in our library to your PC. The troubleshooters can "find and fix" issues immediately or "find and notify" you of the issues it detected. The "find and notify" puts you in control - you decide which issues you want the troubleshooters to resolve. No matter what you choose, we show you a report of what was performed on your PC and offer you options to learn or further investigate the issue or submit a support request at Fix it Center Online.
