Here’s a look at the new Back to the Future episodic game. It will be showing up on PC, Mac, iPad, and PS3, what no Xbox 360? The series will be five parts and is set to start this month. Take a look at the episode listing:
- December: “It’s About Time“
- February: “Get Tannen!“
- March: “Citizen Brown“
- April: “Double Visions“
- TBD: “OUTATIME“
The game doesn’t look like like the open world driver we hoped for, but we’re just glad to see a Back to the Future game being made. Hopefully this will lead to the full retail game we’ve been waiting for? In any event take a look at the what the future holds.
Take a look at Microsoft’s new campaign showing how Windows 7 hearts blu ray. It really seems that Microsoft is rebuilding their image slowly but surely. We’ll admit we like the direction they’re going but we do remember the days of HD DVD vs Blu Ray and Microsoft wasn’t so sweet on the format back then, what a difference a few years makes. Well let’s find out what happens when a PC and a Mac take a flight together.
Today at Apple’s Back to the Mac event they dropped the much anticipated new OS bomb. The new Mac OS X 10.7 aka Lion OS will be released summer 2011 and is inspired by iOS. Lion will feature multitouch gestures and is built for full screen iPad-style applications. The major news is there will be a Mac OS X App Store which will also be available for Snow Leopard. Lion will have a new Launchpad application launcher which sets up an iPad-like grid of all your desktop apps as well as iOS-style folders. There will also be a new feature called Mission Control which will provide a unified view of all windows, open apps, and your dock. This is all looking to be very promising and could most likely sway casual Apple users (iPod, iPhone, iPad only users) to give their desktop machines a try.

Mr. Jobs and company opened the floodgates and let the products flow free for all to see. All devices are available for pre-order today! The new iPod Shuffle has physical buttons, a rear clip, VoiceOver, and playlist. Coming in five different colors and offering 2GB of storage (15 hours of music) and a price tag of $49, you’ll get a lot for a little.
The new iPod Nano offers a multi-touch display and has an iOS-style operating system with multiple home screens showcasing four onscreen icons at a time. The device will also display album art and photos. There will be two models available an 8GB priced at $149 and 16GB priced at $179.
The new thinner iPod Touch will offer Retina display, A4 chip, gyroscope, front-facing camera with FaceTime, rear-facing camera with HD video recording, and iOS 4.1. The device will also support iMovie and FaceTime will work with iPhone 4 and other iPod Touches via WiFi. There will be three models: 8 GB $229, 32 GB $299, 64 GB $399.
The revamped Apple TV is much, much smaller (about one-fourth the size of the original Apple TV) and offers a variety of connectivity options: HDMI, digital audio outputs, Ethernet and 802.11n WiFi. This new device hobby will also offer rentals from iTunes. No word on internal storage (guess that’s how they got it so small?) but the new Apple TV will stream content. HD movies will rent for $4.99 the same day as the DVD release and HD TV shows from FOX and ABC for 99¢. Speaking of streaming there will also be Netflix, Youtube and, MobileMe support this time around. Apple’s new AirPlay will allow it’s users to stream and share content from one iOS device to another. The new Apple TV ships in about four weeks and comes with a remote control. Our favorite part is the new affordable price tag of $99.
We pretty much got everything we expected but in the end we’re happy with that. As we mentioned you can start pre-ordering all these goodies which you might wanna do now while the getting is good. Either that or start saving money for insanely inflated Ebay auctions.
We know you haven’t forgotten but we felt like reminding you anyways. We’ve seen mystery screens, new machines, and now what? Rumors have been abuzz about new iPods, possible new iPads (a little too early to believe), Apple TV, you name it! With the guitar image showing up we can’t help but feel this will be a music-themed event. Perhaps we’ll get some iTunes info but we’re believing an updated iPod to be a lock. In any event we’ll know something in a few hours.
Apple has just announced an overhaul on it’s most powerful platform. You can set up two 6-core Intel Xeon processors and have a whopping twelve cores to play with. This type of monstrous rig will run you around $5,000. If that’s too much for your pocketbook there’s an 8-core quad-core powered setup that will cost around $3,500. That 6-core processor will hit speeds of up to 3.33 GHz.
As far as visuals go the ATI Radeon HD 5770 or 5870 has got you covered, each giving an option of 1GB of memory. What about memory? How does up to 32GB of RAM sound? You can install up to four solid state drives in the system’s internal drive bays. Your new Pro will include a Magic Mouse and an option for a new Magic Trackpad which features multi-Touch gestures of Mac notebooks for a desktop. As far as software, you’ll be seeing Snow Leopard as your OS, iLife to manage your photos, make movies and teach you how to play music. All these bells and whistles will be available to purchase in August via the Apple Store and authorized retailers nationwide.
