Samsung Galaxy Note stop-motion ad might be cooler than the phoneblet itself

by 27 comments

Hey yo dawg, Samsung heard you like stop motion, so it put stop motion in your stop motion! Jokes aside, the latest Samsung Galaxy Note ad is one of the most creative bits of advertising we have seen recently and we believe you may do a whole lot worse with a minute of your life than spending it to watch it.

Even though it didn’t quite have the budget that some of the other Samsung ads had, this video of just over a minute obviously took a substantial effort to create. Read more »

Rovio is gearing up to launch the next major version of their absurdly popular Angry Birds game and they’re stepping up the promotion – yesterday we saw a custom helmet for F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen and today brings more F1 promotion and two new birds.

Heikki’s compatriot Kimi Raikonen will wear a patch (seen above) featuring a new angry bird on his race suit. The bird was chosen to match Kimi’s nickname “Iceman” and is called (surprise!) Ice bird. Read more »

New Aakash 2 tablet comes with better specs and screen, retains $40 price tag

by 29 comments

Remember the Indian government’s project to put a tablet in the hands of every student? Well it seems to be progressing rather well and what we are seeing here is the second version of the ultra-cheap slate. The new Aakash slate is based on the Ubislate 7+ and brings a healthy improvement in specs without upping the price and represents a huge leap forward, just three months after the first version.

Most importantly, the 7″ resistive screen has been replaced by a capacitive one and the tablet got a proper CPU architecture – Cortex-A8. Okay, it’s an old proper architecture and at 700 MHz frequency it will hardly be blazing fast, but that’s more than you can demand from a $40 device. Read more »

The news came from the personal Twitter account of Damian Dinning – the head of the Nokia camera division. Apparently, the native panorama app is already on its way and we can probably count on it coming with the next software update. Read more »

Retina resolution iPad apps start populating the App Store

by 25 comments

It’s been just a week since Apple announced the new iPad and already we are seeing a decent number of apps optimized for the Retina resolution. In fact, Apple has even created a new category within iTunes that highlight these new apps optimized for the new iPad.

Now these aren’t new apps but just ones that have been spruced up to run at a higher resolution. In some cases, such as the Kindle App, it was basically making the text look sharper and in cases of 3D games like Infinity Blade II, the developers would have had to go through a lot more trouble to pour in enough detail to make the game look good enough at that resolution.
