Designed by London’s David Ajasa-Adekunle of the Innovation Imperative studio, the Tetra-Shed is designed to be the perfect personal workspace for either home or corporate offices looking to spice things up. The unit instantly offers the sense of working in a futuristic lab rather than a drab fluorescent-lit box. What I think is most cool other than the name, is how multiple sheds can connect in an almost honeycomb way. Be sure to check out all the pictures after the jump. The Tetra-Shed will be available in early 2012.
The 3DS will never be successful if its selling point remains its 3D gameplay. Unless Nintendo pumps out more first party blockbusters and can convince third party developers to really support the platform (which Nintendo has always had difficulty doing), the 3DS will fail in the states.
Fortunately, Nintendo really knows how make freaking good games. Mario Kart has always been a favorite series of mine. From the Super Nintendo onward, Mario Kart made kart racing fun and engaging with great multiplayer in both battle and racing modes.
Mario Kart on the DS set a new standard for gaming online with the touch screen portable, and while it was no Xbox Live caliber experience, it was “relatively” simple to connect with real life friends and family and matchmaking with random gamers was also a fun experience.
Well, after watching and reading IGN.com’s review of Mario Kart 7, it would seem that Nintendo didn’t skimp when it came to online multiplayer for this 3DS exclusive. IGN raves about the online gameplay, even claiming that it is the best online experience of any Nintendo game to date. I’m glad to hear that Nintendo is focusing on something that’s become very important to today’s gamers: the online community.

On November 18th, Big Fish Games subscription games service was made available through an app that was made officially available through the Apple app store. At the cost of $6.99 per month, the app made available dozens of Big Fish Games’ games available to the subscriber in on an demand streaming fashion. Unfortunately for the corporation, Apple decided to remove the app from the store within the past two days.
“We were notified that the app was removed… We’re trying to follow up with Apple to try to figure out what happened,” Paul Thelen, the founder of Big Fish Games said.
While the iPad 3 might not be in our hands until early to mid 2012, Apple is making sure they’ll be ready to meet consumer demand when it hits store shelves.
Based on analyst reports, the screen for the iPad 3 is already on the production line from three different suppliers. Richard Shim, an analyst at DisplaySearch, made some comments regarding the screen production. Shim stated, “It’s happening–QXGA, 2048×1536. Panel production has started [for the next-generation iPad]. There’s three suppliers.” Those suppliers include Samsung, Sharp and LGD, says CNET.
Google’s doing it’s best to remain the search engine of choice and to help them keep their dominant presence they know that they have to keep their software up to date. Not just on the Android mobile OS, but on every platform possible.
Just this Monday, Google released a major update of its search application for iOS and it looks to be quite an upgrade especially for iPad users. You can see Google’s video demonstration below:
I have to say that iOS 5 has pretty much completed the iPhone. It’s a great mobile OS and has made my new iPhone 4 feel better than new.
I was always a huge fan of Web OS due to its superior multi-tasking. WebOS used a great UI that was meant to simulate a hand of cards that were easy to discard, closing a program, and it was very easy to swipe between programs. While I’m not sure the legalities behind it, I’m sure Apple cannot reproduce something identical to the multitasking seen in WebOS. But I will ask for Apple to create a better multi-tasking UI. The one that is currently implemented is clunky and feels as though it were forced into the OS rather than a natural addition. I’m not sure what they could do to make it better, but I have faith that Apple could come up with something.
I will tell you right now that I hate the default Maps program. It’s abominable. The fact that it now has the option to select between different routes makes it more usable, but without voice over turn by turn directions, using it while driving is very difficult. The compass in the iPhone is also inaccurate, hindering the ability for Maps to use the compass to better help me get to where I’m going. I would love to see Apple create a Maps program that truly competes with the turn by turn direction GPS software that is built into Android.

Google’s Galaxy Nexus was released this week in the UK and has already been put up against almost every other smartphone available benchmark wise.
Apple’s pointing its anal finger once again at Amazon for using the “App Store” phrase. Apparently Amazon is calling the app store for the Kindle Fire the “Amazon Appstore”, and the Cupertino powerhouse is up in arms.
Apple modified the lawsuit once Amazon began advertising for the new Fire tablet. According to Macworld “Apple submitted a trademark application for ‘App Store’ with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 2008. That application is pending, awaiting resolution of opposition from Microsoft.”
The iPhone Lens Dial from photojojo, boasts three optical-quality coated glass lenses: Wide Angle, Fisheye, and Telephoto. All wrapped up in a slim aircraft-grade aluminum jacket equipped with two tripod mounts (for portrait or landscape shots). I have been waiting for something like this, but for $250 I might be waiting a bit.
