CES: Sony makes push for 3D at CES

Sony has one major focus for the near future and that’s 3D.
The entertainment and electronics giant previewed a slew of new 3D-compatible products this evening during thecompany’s keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The 3D theme transcends the company’s line of products, from TVs and Blu-ray players to laptops and game titles.
Sony kicked off the event with a dramatic 3D demonstration, featuring a long clip from Sony’s forthcoming 3D movie “The Green Hornet.” Sony Chairman Howard Stringer was then delivered on stage in the Green Hornet’s car by the stars of the action movie, Seth Rogan and Jay Chou.

Stringer–while still wearing his 3D glasses–predicted that 50 million TVs in U.S. homes would be Internet-connected via Sony products, including TV, Blu-ray players, and PlayStationconsoles, by March. Calling 3D “more than a scientific gimmick,” Stringer predicted that 2011 would be “a year in which 3D becomes personal.”
One of the ways Stringer intends to get into U.S. homes is via a new 3D channel called 3Net, which will launch in the coming months and feature 24/7 3D content.
Stringer then introduced Sony VP Hiroshi Yoshioka, who took the stage to talk about some of the products Sony has in the works. He promised a 3D-compatible Vaio and handicams. He also showed off a prototype head-mounted display for watching movies and a prototype glasses-less 3D Blu-ray player that resembled a portable DVD player.
“[There is no] timetable set for commercialization of any of these products,” he said. “We just want you to know these are on our radar.”
Moving on to Sony’s plans for TV, Stringer returned to the stage to talk about “TV redefined.”
“Our aim is to redefine the way consumers interact with television,” Stringer said. “Marriage of the television and Internet” is upon us, adding that it’s “clear consumers are ready for it.”

"StickWars 2" Game Review

StickWars 2  was created by Pinger, is the sequel to the popular Stick Wars game. I was impressed by the first game so I thought I would check out the sequel. If you are unfamiliar with Stick Wars, it was a popular castle defense game in which you must protect your castle against a never-ending army of stickmen. For those who used to spend your days as kids drawing stick men or playing Hangman then this will especially touch your heart.

The concept is pretty straightforward. In this game you must protect your precious castle against hordes of angry stickmen bent on your destruction. The stickmen will be charging at you with different speeds from the right and you will be mainly using your finger as your main form of protection…

Killing stickmen is done by easily swiping at the screen. Another method is just pointing at a stickmen, dragging them into the sky and flicking at the other stickmen to kill them in groups.
You will also see archers, repairmen and wizards returning to this sequel. Let me briefly explain the three for those who have not played the original.

You will be using archers, repairmen and wizards to protect your castle. Archers and Wizards protect your castle by either spraying arrows or casting magic at the oncoming stickmen. Repairmen (depending on how many) will add hit points every few seconds. You will also be able to capture stickmen with the dungeon upgrade and can use these captured soldiers suicide bombers to protect your castle.

Just like the original game you will earn money as you progress in the game. Money is awarded for how you kill the stickmen and this money can be used to upgrade your castle. However employing repairman, archers and wizards will deduct from money you receive, so I suggest not really using them until you can’t handle it by yourself anymore.

As I mentioned above, you will mainly use your finger to pick up and kill the stickmen. Once you get up to the higher levels, you will find yourself frantically picking and throwing. Later on in the game, the stickmen will charge at you with catapults and battering rams with different speeds so it really adds to the franticness.

Aside from the new colors and graphics, I don’t really think that the sequel did much better from the first version. Usually developers learn from their mistakes in the first version and make the second bigger and badder, but this was not the case! There is really no end to the game, and after dying a few times in the higher levels I just gave up.

This game was initially fun in the beginning, so casual gamers might like this game. You can now enjoy this game at FREE now. Any people interesting on it?

Some Reviews of the Game (From Apple App Store):

Great game (FIVE STAR)

This game is awesome, but I still feel that it could use a few more upgrades. The upgrades that were added in the newest update really helped a lot! Keep upgrading the game and I am sure that more people will leave 5 star reviews and more people will certainly but this game!

Outstanding Sequel! (FIVE STAR)

The only thing worse than zombies? Flaming Zombies!

Updated version makes it easier to get to the “fun” levels without carpel tunnel syndrome 🙂

Running Mac on Cr-48? Not a Joke!

Some people that have got Google CR-48 Chrome Notebook start finding out its malleability, and the newest news is someone successes running Mac OSX on Google CR-48 Chrome Notebook. However, because CR-48 specification is not very high, it runs OSX with lack, but overall it can perform the OSX function successfully. Although it is funny that running OSX on a low performance notebook, but this is also a good try for running an OSX operating system on a Chrome Notebook.
