Nintendo caused a bit of a stir Friday morning by unveiling two new handheld systems, literally called the "New 3DS" and "New 3DS LL." The devices -- which are bigger, brighter and more powerful than their predecessors -- court a class of more dedicated gamers whom Nintendo has been willing to cede to Sony, its main competitor in the portable game market. But, the company confirmed, gamers in the United States won't be seeing the new systems any time s ...

Apple's march of the lemmings

Aug 28 2014 6:45pm CDT | Source: BetaNews

So the Apple media invites are out, and I am laughing my ass off at how effectively the company manipulates the Fourth and Fifth Estates and how willing are the lemmings to be led. (I got no invite, by the way, and didn't expect one.) So what? We've got the same venue where Steve Jobs unveiled the Mac in 1984. Thirty-year anniversary. Check.

A recent article in The Economist, citing the work of Ryan Raffaelli at Harvard Business School, points to what it calls a “paradox” in the aftermath of disruptive innovation. Some old technologies, after being rendered obsolete by better and cheaper alternatives (indeed even after whole industries based on them have been decimated), manage to “re-emerge” to the point that they sustain healthy businesses.

Microsoft says the standalone Kinect will cost $149. So if you happened to buy the Xbox One bundle with Kinect earlier this year for $499, congratulati ...

Godzilla stomps back in ultra HD splendor, but wires aren’t erased to stay true to original

Aug 27 2014 4:41am CDT | Source: Canadian Business Online

TOKYO – At a humble Tokyo laboratory, Godzilla, including the 1954 black-and-white original, is stomping back with a digital makeover that delivers four times the image quality of high definition. The effort with “4K” technology is carefully removing scratches and discoloration from the films and also unearthing hidden information on the reel-to-reel. Experts say the chemical reactions used to make old movies stored far greater detail than was visible with the limited projection tec ...
