65Bits Episode 77 : The end of an Era Posted on: June 29, 2008 at 11:46 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

Some people live forever, immortalised by the greatness they have inspired or the people they’ve destroyed. Bill Gates is a man who arguably has done both in the tech industry. We drool and gush over HP’s newest and sexehest PC, the HP Touchsmart. You can now rest assured that someone is working to ensure that those who want to apply Creative Commons to their work will soon be able to do so. Nasi Lemak style! We love Microsoft’s extended love for XP, and Nokia’s arms wide open embrace of Open Sauce. Mmm Teriyaki.

Loving Each Day,
The Jedi, The Airplane and the Pokémon

Blizzard announces Diablo III Posted on: June 28, 2008 at 9:17 pm Posted in: Blog

Diablo III Logo

I’m actually surprised no one has noticed this yet. Blizzard unveiled Diablo III today at the Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational. I could dig up all the new features of Diablo III and tell them to you, but where’s the fun in that?

Here’s the link to the Official Diablo 3 website to discover for yourself

And here’s a summary of the new game:

Twenty years have passed since the cataclysmic events of Diablo® II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram….

Jerrick and NTT will definitely have lots to say about this new game on Episode 78 of 65bits… 😉

The future is here and its an open secret. Apple has unveiled the way it plans to make all applications online, and we don’t even know about it. Sproutcore’s its name, and we can wait to see what it does. Youtube launched a thing specially for its Partners, we talk about all the iPhone wannabes and killers and wonder if they do or do not actually match up, and question the future of graphics cards/processors/kitchen sinks. Lastly, Singapore Airlines makes a very BLOCKY impression on us.

Tupolev, Iluyushin, Fokker

65Bits Episode 73: Goodbye Farinelli Posted on: June 1, 2008 at 8:11 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

This week we discover the joys of having an ethernet switchbox bring gigabit ethernet right to your room, instead of creating tons of hazards by running wires all over the house.

Ok no, this is “WTF is Wrong with the Net” week. On our very own island, VueStar claims the most ridiculous patent yet, and on the other side of the world, automated crusaders cause trouble for everyone’s favorite vidcast production house with a positive DDoS and then deny it. Some deeper discussion about how Nokia is considering using Linux as a cellphone platform, followed by a distinctly more comprehensible rant on “the new MP3 standard” my fat Farinelli a*se. Joy o joy at news of Dell’s foray into the netbook scene with the Mini-Inspiron, before going into our byte of the week, the dropbox-like Windows Live Skydrive.
