Open source Doom 3 gets ported to Android [video]

by LucianAugust 9, 2012

Doom 3 is a science fiction horror video game made by id Software, that was released in 2004 for Windows. It’s been id Software’s most successful game so far, selling over 3.5 million copies. Later it was adapted to the Linux platform, then Mac OS X, and after that, to the Xbox and Xbox360 consoles.

After this whole success, id Software decided to open source Doom 3 last year, so now anyone can  try and port it to any platform they want. That’s how we’re now able to see developers trying to port Doom 3 to Android. The ported game is still in pre-alpha stage, so don’t expect it to work very well. Plus, for a 2004 game I think you need a more [...]

CyanogenMod 9 stable release is out for the Galaxy Nexus

by LucianAugust 9, 2012

The CyanogenMod team released the RC1 version of CM9 just before Google I/O started. A couple of weeks later, RC2 was launched, and now it seems that CyanogenMod 9 stable is trickling out for some devices. Well, truth be told, they’ve only released it for the Galaxy Nexus so far, which may be why the team hasn’t made an official post about it yet. I’m sure that once at least a couple dozen phones will support it, they will announce it.

Reaching the stable version of CM9 is a very big deal for the developers that have been working on it for so long, because it has been a huge project. When they started porting ICS over, they’ve had to basically [...]

The Exynos 5 Dual will be the world’s first Cortex A15-based chip, when it will ship later this year, presumably inside the 11.8-inch tablet Samsung is going to launch later this year. Samsung had to wait for this A15-based chip to support the very high WQXGA (2560×1600) resolution of the Galaxy Tab 11.6.

Some of the most important features of the newly unveiled Exynos 5250 are:

Dual-core 1.7 Ghz Cortex A15 CPU Mali T604 GPU OpenGL ES 3.0 OpenCL 1.1 full [...]

Jelly Bean app encryption issues force Google to disable the feature

by LucianAugust 9, 2012

The Verge

Piracy is a problem for developers on any platform, and pirating an app on Android is not that much harder than doing it on Windows. Some would say the piracy on Android is a lot higher than on iOS, but some developers have disproved this. Since most of the piracy happens in China, for both Android and iOS, where people wouldn’t pay for the apps anyway, the piracy rates between the 2 platforms are not that different.

However, since Android started being known in the media for being a piracy haven because it’s more “open”, Google has started working [...]
