As of today, Blizzard’s Diablo 3 is already the fastest selling PC game of all time. That’s according to Blizzard, who also announced that they have sold 3.5 million copies in the first 24 hours of availability.
Nevertheless, there are some mixed reactions to the game coming from those who are playing it right now. Most of the negative reactions are directed to Blizzard itself – specifically, the emergency server maintenance and the patching that have occured since the game was launched.
Of course, for an online multiplayer game, server reliability is a big factor and players ought to know when the server is down or up. Now, knowing the status [...]
Despite the reliance that so many have on Microsoft’s range of productivity applications, the software giant is yet to release an Office app on Android and iOS devices. A couple of months ago, a running version of Microsoft Office was spotted on an iPad, but its authenticity was questioned after Microsoft denied it. But the demand for dedicated mobile apps is clearly there, so Microsoft is apparently planning to release its full Office suit for Android and iOS soon.
The news was first reported by BGR, which got a tip from “a reliable source” about Microsoft’s plan to bring Office to a wider audience. Not only is the company planning to make the suite [...]
The Department of Computer Science at the North Carolina State University has started the Android Malware Genome Project in an attempt to dissect Android based malware and see what makes it tick. The researchers are working with a collection of some 1,200 examples of Android malware, including the very first Trojans found in August 2010.
The team has started to systematically analyze the malware and create a database of the varying characteristics, including how the malware gets installed, how it is activated, and the nature of the malicious payloads. Not surprisingly, one “discovery” made by the team is that malware is “evolving rapidly to circumvent the [...]
Google+ launched a year ago, and while it will not replace Facebook anytime soon, the budding social network got a lot of users so far. I even think that, while Google+ and Facebook share some similarities, in reality, Google+ is more like a long-form Twitter than a Facebook competitor. From my experience with it at least, you don’t really go there to share stuff with your “friends”, but to see what the authorities in some areas that you’re interested in are posting. Then comment on their posts, and +1 or share their posts with whomever you may have added to your circles.
One thing I liked about the Google+ mobile app ever since the beginning [...]
One of the greatest things about having an Android phone its ability to display messages, like popups, anywhere on your phone. Everything goes according to our expectations except for one thing: pop-ups don’t work when you’re playing games or using apps in full-screen.
That results in not being able to view messages when you’re concentrating on your game and that’s annoying. But, here’s the good news: Android developers have heard your problems and that’s where SMS Flash comes into the picture.
SMS Flash is a simple app that will display incoming messages as soon as it reaches your phone, whether you’re playing a game or using an app in full [...]

They are the universe’s best-kept secret; the Earth’s best, last and only line of defense. They are the Men in Black and they are back. Men in Black is about to become a trilogy officially this weekend. If I heard it right, the movie’s story-line has some time-travelling elements. It’s pretty interesting and we’d love to give you more information about the movie but that’s not what we’re reporting here. Instead, we’d like to tell you about the movie tie-in game which Gameloft released ahead of the movie’s screening weekend.
Simply dubbed Men In Black 3 without any sub-title, this new Android game [...]
The release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was met with a lot of rave reviews, as a slew of new, exciting features were made available to the Android public. In the days following the release, an Ice Cream Sandwich statue was unveiled, fans rushed to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and phone manufacturers stumbled to dish out the latest Android mobile OS to previously released handsets.
But, the whole buzz has left several few out in the cold–those who, for one reason or another, will just have to miss out on the latest software update. I’m talking about Android users who own mobile devices released a few years back. Although your phone [...]
The Internet has become part of the lives of the younger generations. What used to be a way for us to collect information and to easily access it has evolved in such a way that we can hardly live with being disconnected from other people.

Social media spans several types, from collaborative projects like Wikipedia to blogs and micro-blogs and content communities that allow you to upload videos. You can also keep updated on what your friends are up to via social networking sites and you can make even more friends through virtual [...]
