New Nexus Devices Announced!

Hurricane sandy ruined what was supposed to be the coming out event for the new nexus devices.  Even though google postponed the playground event, they went on ahead and announced their new devices; probably due to the fact that windows and apple already made two announcements prior and waiting would only hurt google's pace in this ever competitive mobile market. So here are the details of the new nexus devices, all credits goes to, google's official blog page.

  • Nexus 4: Nexus 4 is our latest smartphone, developed together with LG. It has a quad-core processor which means it's super fast, a crisp 4.7" (320 ppi) display that's perfect for looking at photos and watching YouTube, and with wireless charging you just set the phone down on a charging surface to power it up, no wires needed..
    • 8GB for $299; 16GB for $349; available unlocked and without a contract on 11/13 on the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199, with a 2-year contract (check here for more details).
  • Nexus 7: 16GB for $199 and 32GB for $249; available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan, and also through our retail partners Gamestop, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and Walmart.
  • Nexus 10: We wanted to build a premium entertainment device, so we partnered with Samsung to do just that. Nexus 10 is the highest resolution tablet on the planet with a 10.055" display at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), that's over 4 million pixels right in your hands. It comes with a powerful battery that will get you up to nine hours of video playback and more than 500 hours of standby time. With a set of front-facing stereo speakers, you can watch movies right from your Nexus 10 and they simply sound awesome. But what makes Nexus 10 unique is that it's the first truly shareable tablet.
    • 16GB for $399; 32GB for $499; available on 11/13 in the Google Play Store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan. You'll also be able to purchase the 32GB version in more than 2,000 Walmart stores in the U.S.
Off course the big problem right now with the nexus 4 that many others have pointed out is the lack of lte and expandable storage.

Ipod Touch 5g vs Iphone 5

The iPod touch is a strange bird. The first edition was released just a few months after the iPhone in 2007 as the iPod line's lone multitouch device. Through the years, though, it's become known more as a Nintendo DS rival than an MP3 player. Though kids' gaming may be the iPod touch's claim to fame, the device is almost on par with the iPhone. That point may be more valid today than ever, as the iPod touch has received a long-awaited update - probably its biggest yet. How does the new 5th generation iPod touch compare to its big brother, the iPhone 5? Let's take a look…


Apart from the iPod touch's incredible thinness, these measurements look similar
Apart from the iPod touch's incredible thinness, these measurements look similar
When looking at dimensions, you could argue that the iPod touch is the winner. The iPhone 5 is ridiculously thin for a high-powered smartphone, but the 5th gen. iPod touch makes it look chunky. It may be the thinnest mobile device you've ever seen.
Both devices have the new longer style, to accommodate the matching 16:9 displays. The iPod touch is a hair shorter than the iPhone, with identical width.


The iPhone 5 is light, but the 5G iPod touch is much lighter

Much like its thinness, the weight of the iPod touch is mind-boggling. The iPhone 5's lightness is one of its hallmarks, but the iPod touch's lack of heft blows it away. Apple may as well have branded it as the iPod Air.


The iPod touch gets an equal display this time around
The iPod touch gets an equal display this time around
The 5th generation iPod touch gets the exact same display as the iPhone 5. Though the 4th gen. edition had identical (Retina) resolution as the iPhone 4/4S, it was a cheaper display. This year, the two devices are equals.
Judging by these first few categories, you'd think the iPod touch was the superior device, but things are about to change …


No A6 for the iPod touch
No A6 for the iPod touch
The iPhone 5's A6 chip is a market-leader, which has broken multiple benchmark records. But the iPod touch has no such luck. It's still stuck in the land of A5, the chip found in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. By 2012 standards, it still delivers impressive performance, but it's no A6.


With less RAM and a weaker processor, the iPod touch won't perform like the iPhone 5 does

The iPod touch also got the short end of the RAM stick. The iPhone 5 jumped to 1 GB, but the touch's 512 MB (again) matches the amount in the iPhone 4S.


There is no 16GB option for the iPod touch
There is no 16GB option for the iPod touch
The only difference here is that the iPhone 5 is available in a 16 GB model (for US$200 on-contract), while the new iPod touch's base storage option is 32 GB ($300).


Despite rumors we heard last year, the iPod touch still doesn't come with mobile data

Wireless is the biggest differentiator between the two devices. Namely, the iPhone is a phone, and the iPod touch isn't. You'll be limited to Wi-Fi networks with the touch, so no mobile browsing unless it's tethered to a portable hotspot.
The iPod touch also lacks GPS. Though it can still utilize location-based services, they won't be nearly as accurate as they are in the iPhone.


These stats don't make much sense side-by-side, but we may see similar battery life

If you're wondering how to compare the above stats, you aren't alone. Until the iPod touch ships and we get some real-world use, there will be no accurate way to compare the two devices.
Though the iPod touch should have a smaller battery than the iPhone 5 (a big part of its lightweight status), it isn't burdened with cellular data drain, so uptimes may even out.


The iPhone 5 has a superior camera

If you want an excellent camera, your choice is easy. The iPhone 5 takes the great camera in the iPhone 4S and improves its low-light shooting. The iPod touch's camera, meanwhile, is probably closer to the shooters in the iPhone 4 and 3rd gen. iPad.
Both cameras have front-facing (FaceTime) cameras, primarily for video chat.

Summing up

Though the iPod touch won't be an iPhone replacement for most people, it's only a few specifications shy of its big sibling. For kids who don't need phones or adults who want to get in on the iOS fun without an expensive wireless contract, it's a great choice.
If you want the best of the two, though, make no mistake: it's the iPhone 5. Despite the iPod touch's insane lightness and thinness, the iPhone's faster CPU, additional RAM, improved camera, and wireless capabilities make it the more capable choice.

New Iphone 5 Leaked Images

  I'm extremely excited for the iphone 5 to come out.  I've been waiting for this long await upgrade for a while.  what i hope it will have is a bigger screen, more ram, quad core, and better battery.   So of course with all this excitement everyone's including myself have been having, there has been alot of rumors going about.  The thing with Rumors is that most of it are false.  However, recently supposedly "leaked" images of the iphone 5 seems very probably.  i honestly think the images are real and this is the beta version of the iphone 5.  if so, it looks so far.  I love the alimony alloy rim casing around the phone itself, makes it look nice and makes it sturdy.  on top of that, the screen does alot bigger.  I can not wait for this device!

Assassin's Creed 3 DLC Details Leaked: A Gamer's Take

          New Details are Leaked about the upcoming game, Assassin's Creed 3.  it seems that Ubisoft will be doing day 1 DLCs.  personally, i think the DLC business have ruined gaming.  I recall the days of playstation 1 and N64 when games were supposed to be complete and be the full experience.  Nowadays, game companies purposely take out in game content that were already completed, repackage it, call it a "DLC" and make money while ripping off customers.   this is the case with many games from capcom and the recent Deus Ex: Human Revolution, where a full storyline part was intentional taken out only to later be sold a DLC.  this is digusting practice in my opinion.   What do you Think?
