Is the PlayStation coming back for another round?
Sony just announced the PS4. I don’t recall the last time I ever turned on my PS3 anymore. Wait, I sold it almost 3 years ago in exchange to buy an iPad.
Performance specs and graphics no longer matter in the gaming world. The iOS ecosystem has definitely created a new platform for gaming where mobile sales have completely risen over traditional console gaming.
Sony apparently has realized this and might actually make a come back for the PlayStation. You see, by releases apps for iOS and Android and allowing tethering gameplay on the PS4, Sony potentially unlocks an all new market. A market for gamers to buy games on the go and play on their mobile devices, with the PS4 acting as a central server. Much like what Apple already does with their iCloud servers.
If this follows through, we can see much more sales for Sony raking in from their video games department.
Let’s see how the gaming world develops.

CNNMoney Tech Tumblr: Apple's no good very bad RECORD SHATTERING quarter
Apple reported sales of $55 billion for its fourth-quarter, and a profit of $13 billion.
That’s THIRTEEN BILLION. $13,078,000,000, to be more precise. It’s the second-highest quarterly profit in U.S. history.
As Tim Cook pointed out on Apple’s conference call, the company sold 10 iOS devices…
Food For Thought.

I’ve been deciding on an enthusiast camera for the past days and have come to the conclusion of either a Sony A77 or Fujifilm X100S.. the two are completely different but the price range and features fit the bill perfectly. Question is, are DSLRs still the top of the pack nowadays?

There’s just something about vintage gear that I savor over. Why buy a 27” Thunderbolt Display + Mac Pro when you can get a discontinued 23” Cinema Display + PowerPC processor for just about the same price?
I even miss the oversized keys from the past Apple Keyboard. Now, where can I still find a brand new one?

“When it comes to mobile and digital literacy, Taiwan is the little island that could. With a population of 23 million, the Republic of China houses more people than the continent of Australia; by 2002, the offering of one mobile service per citizen had been reached, a major milestone in telecomm. By 2008, 70% of all homes in Taiwan had Internet connections, and 80% of all homes owned PCs. And as of this year, the island’s Internet economy accounted for 5.4% of overall GDP.”
