While the components are undergoing testing, there are reports that say that the iPad 2 gadgets will hit the shelves next year. FaceTime is something new for the iPhone 4 and the latest iPod Touch gadgets, but we will also see it in this new tablet.
There is still a lot of work to be done on the first generation. The inclusion of camera will definitely boost more sales. I do hope that it will also include a USB port. All these are basic components. And oh yes, not forgetting multitasking capabilities!

Microsoft is said to go clean with the Windows phone 7 gadgets. The company has published a few guidelines for developers who intend to produce applications for the new operating system. There shall be no intense violence or programs that have sexual themes.
It seems like this clean approach may help win parents over. Apps developers are advised not to include images or themes that are sexually suggestive, or anything that show the private privates, including the nipples and buttocks.
However, there is a limit the level of violence that would be allowed. Extreme gore and violence such as exploding body parts, cruelty to people or animals, decapitation, sexual interactions will also not be allowed. This is compared to the Apple as well, where there is a very clear understanding that sexually explicit nature is also not allowed in the iTunes. This is a totally different tune to that of the android market, where "some" sexual content is allowed.

These gadgets are much more powerful today. They've also become lighter and more stylish in appearance. If you wish to get a laptop, there are some shopping tips that you can use.
1. Search for them online. Make comparisons and do reviews. Once you are done, you may want to check them out at the stores.
2. Try out the keyboard. Make sure that it is comfortable and easy to type. You should also check for its responsiveness. Try to type a few words and see for yourself.
3. You may also want to test the mousepad. This is something that is very important, and if it is not responsive, then it is very difficult to use. Make sure that it is easy to control.
4. You may also want to check out the screen size. It should be big enough to make viewing experience pleasant. However, if you wish to make it portable, then it should not be too big.
5. The laptop should also have at least two USB connections. USB products are in high demand and you will need plenty of USB connections.

Google has launched a new tool that lets anyone create an app for your Android gadgets. The Google App Inventor can help non-coders to develop complete and working Android apps. This is definitely something good for those who are looking to tap into the Android market. If you are not a developer and have no prior experience, this is definitely something for you.
The good thing about the Android market is that you can submit your apps without any approval from Google. This is an open platform and we will expect to see a buzz of activity from the non-developers as well. This will greatly increase the number of apps in the Android market.
However, this comes at the cost of quality. We will be expecting plenty of new apps each day, but most of them will be of poor quality. In fact, some of them may even be useless. And we will see how this concept will work. You may also want to look forward to more games from the professional developers.

I strongly believe that Nokia is losing out on its market share, especially when the iPhone was launched several years back. It seems like Nokia has not recovered from this. To make things worse, Google joined the mobile industry with its android platform, which I think is pretty cool. I'm not sure how big the android market is, but it has already overtaken the iPhone.
Many have long abandoned their phones for other brands, including me. I was an avid fan of Nokia until I start using the Samsung Galaxy S. What about you? Would you get another gadget, or would you continue using Nokia? Go to the link here and voice your opinions.

This latest gadget which features the same display from the iPhone 4 comes with a speedy G4 processor, and it has both front and rear facing cameras. The iPod Touch has met with positive reviews. If you do not intend to buy the iPhone 4, you may want to consider getting the iPod Touch.

I am a huge fan of the Angry Birds when it was released on the iPhone. However, I am now using the Samsung Galaxy S, and have been waiting for this game to be released on the android phones. It's finally here!
The game, which is very popular on the iPhone, has been downloaded over 5 million times. I think this is one of the best games around and with the growing android market, I don't see why they are going to ignore this market as well. This game is now available in Beta version. I can't wait to download this game!
There are also plans to release this game on PS3.

If you're looking for a new mobile phone, then you may want to find out which are the best gadgets for 2010. The search stops here. Here are the top five mobiles that you can find, as reviewed by t3.com.
1. The first mobile is none other than the Apple iPhone 4. The new improved iPhone comes with a five megapixel camera and a new videoconferencing feature. It's faster than the previous iPhones and this allows you to do multi tasking like never before.
2. HTC Desire. I'm not sure about this phone, but it comes with android 2.1 processor that makes web browsing and rather easy.
3. HTC Legend. It has a bright screen, with the fast Internet browser. However, the battery life is rather short.
4. Samsung Galaxy S. I'm currently holding onto this phone and I simply adore the AMOLED screen. It's a lot better than my previous Nokia phones.
5. Google Nexus One. This is Google's first attempt at the smart phone industry and it comes with a 1 GHz processor. It has a responsive touch screen. However, this phone is often compared to the HTC Desire, which is a lot better in a few other aspects.
My conclusion? I've tried the Samsung Galaxy S and my vote goes to this phone. :)

Although the current gaming applications will not work with the PartyDock, Griffin is hoping that game developers will try this new gaming approach, and thus develop games that are fully compatible with this device. No details have been announced yet regarding the release dates as well as the prices.

What is strange about the selling point of this phone is the solar panel and operating system, and not the functionality. From the review that I have read, I think this is by far one of the most 'outdated gadget' launched so far this year. I think Puma has to look for alternatives.

I think I am already falling head over heels over this gadget, and I am looking to play all the games in there! LOL! Thanks for reading! :)

It is still in a class of its own, and deserves our attention.
The Galaxy U features network specifications for J-CDMA and CDMA Rev.A, and it features a 3.7 AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen display with 16M colour support. This is the main reason why I like the Galaxy S. Awesome and beautiful display.
It comes with a 1GHz processor and there is also a 5MP auto-focus camera on the back, with the record video up to 720p HD. It runs on the Android Operating System, but we are not sure which version would it be. No word on exact release date or how much it will cost, but that should come soon enough. Oh, and it comes in white and black. Read the full details here http://androidcommunity.com/samsung-galaxy-u-specifications-revealed-20100818/
I'm sure the company is planning on a comeback, since they have been pretty quiet recently. Read the latest news here : http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/androidosfeeds/~3/-vjg5Cv0RSA/

This is built with the mainstream fans in mind, and this latest game comes very close to bring you every single detail with the game that you watch on Sundays. A great addition to this game is the ability for your teammates to actually land successful blocks and hold them long enough so that you can read and plan accordingly.
The finishes are cool, and tje gameplay is actually good while moving around in the game. The players move with such elegance and power that you think you are watching the games 'live'!
You can find the official games trailer here.

I'm using my Samsung Galaxy S to post this blog. Just downloaded this cool blogger apps to try this out. Indeed fun and easy to upload a blog post :)
You can find this simple app on the Android market under social networking.
Slide owns the rights of a few games like the Top Fish, SuperPocus Academy of Magic, SuperPoke, and SPP Ranch. It designs tools or widgets for social networking sites like Orkut, MySpace and FaceBook. I am sure you have used SuperPoke before on FaceBook. This is seen as a direct challenge to FaceBook, which is well known in the gaming industry, with many developers having their games on the social networking site. FaceBook can boast of the FarmVille game, and now it seems like Google wants a share of it as well.

Accordingly to reports, the tablet will have a slightly smaller display at 7", compared to the iPad's 9.7" screen. There are no details on the specs at the moment. With the iPad being sold over 3 million sets since it was launched in April, more manufacturers are taking things into their stride and finally realise that there is some money to be made from the tablet market. This had never been done before by any other manufacturers (some tried and failed), and Apple has did a great job out of this.
Microsoft is also planning to introduce new tablets based on their own operating systems. We shall see how the market shift to a touchscreen society in months to come. Lots of intense competition I would say, and of cause it benefits the end users like us.

Apple argued that this decision to allow jailbreaking the gadgets would result in "copyright infringement, potential damage to the device and other optential harmful physical effects, adverse effects on the functioning of the gadgets, and also a breach of contract".
However, these claims were denied on the considerations that jailbreaking can enhance inter-operability of the phone, and thus should be legal under fair uses. The rules, however, do not affect the warranty rules set out by these companies. The new rules apply to any other mobiles as well.

Samsung has claimed that is Galaxy S is way better than iPhone 4, and is giving it away for free so that users can compare which is better just to prove this point. A pity I don't stay in UK! How about extending this offer to Singapore as well when we launch the iPhone 4 here? LOL!

Clearly, Apple is closing its doors to open apps. Applications must be submitted to Apple for reviews and Apple will then decide if that app can be sold or not in the Apple App store. On the other hand, Andriod Market is an open system, where developers can directly publish their apps to the market without having to go through any authority. This would mean that the Android Market wil have more varieties, but you migh need to sacrifice quality for quantity. Thankfully, there is a rating system and comments section which can help eradicate those poorly designed apps. The iPhone and Android-based mobiles are probably one of the best gadgets today, thanks to these apps.
Android Market also allows a full refund if you are unhappy with your purchase. All you have to do is to uninstall the app within 24 hours of buying. This is a lot better and makes shopping for the right apps more convenient. If the app does not work properly, or is something that you don't like, then uninstall it and you get a full refund. Apple does not allow that though. Make sure you like the app before buying it! If you wish to buy either of these gadgets, please check your right for more information!

You have probably heard of FarmVille. This is created by Zynga, and I believe this is one of the most popular games on FV. It is still growing at a steady pace. This is a game where you become a farmer. You can grow crops, plants tress and rear animals. You can also interact with your friends in the game. Once your crops are ripe, harvest them and sell them off for profits. Make sure you do harvest in time, otherwise they will die and this will make your efforts go down the drain.
Another game is the Cafe World, which is also made by Zynga. Cafe World is a fun game to play is you are looking to have your own restuarant. When playing this game, you can do anything you want. You are the cook and business owner, so you can also hire servers. Make sure the food is served hot to your guests!
Another fun game is the Happy Aquarium by CrowdStar. This allows you to set up your own fish tank. You can buy fish or other creatures in the game. Make sure that you feed your fish, otherwise they will die. Once your fish matures in the game, you can sell them off for profits.

It seems like there is no stopping Google. They are everywhere, from search engines, to social sites, to mobiles, to news, to books, and now games. In April this year, they hired Mark DeLoura, a gaming expert to be the mastermind behind Google games. TechCrunch also reported that Google has invested $100-$200 million in the FarmVille mastermind Zynga.
What does this signify? The Google games can take a huge share of followers off Facebook this time round. This is especially so, since there are many privacy issues that surface from FB recently. We are now looking at what Google is coming up next, probably a profile portal as well? Be prepared for the onslaughter!

Is it really possible to get a free ipad, or is this simply a scam? Apple is always looking for product testers who are keen to try out their products, and then offer comments on them. The ipad is one such product. If you qualify, you can get to keep the ipad as well!
Another way to get really cheap ipads is through a bidding website. There are many websites that offer you the chance to bid for any gadget, at dirt-cheap prices. This is provided you won the bid, and there was no one to challenge you when the bidding process stops. If have found a few cool sites myself, just google "bid for cheap ipad" or "cheap bids ipad" and you will find something interesting.

Are you wondering why these websites are still able to make money even though they allow us to play these games for free? Where does the revenue come from? I found out that these sites receive a huge volume of traffic each day, often in the millions. Imagine what this can do to your website if you are getting this kind of traffic!
How can you utilise this kind of traffic then? You can sell advertising space, offer a service such as gaming tips and advice, or even include ads from Google and Yahoo. There are many such opportunities out there. How can you have these games on your sites there? There are many games that can be embedded into your site easily, all you have to do is to copy the embed code into your site. With such a service, you can be sure of getting more visitors to your website, and with that, making you more money when people visit your site to play these free flash games.

Treasure Isle is all about... well, digging. Personally I find this game a bit odd at first as the only thing you do is dig, dig and well... more digging.
The game starts you off with the character creation screen and from there you can choose either to be a boy or a girl treasure hunter. Later on if you decide that you like to choose a different gender, then game seems to allow you to do that. A bit different from the other games I played as usually once you choose the gender of your character; you are stuck with it unless you create a whole new account for it. Nevertheless, this is how the developers in Zynga want the game to work. To provide players with a bit of freedom in what they want to do.
After you finish deciding on your gender the game tutorial will begin, instructing you on how the game mechanic works. You start off on a small and I do mean small, small island as you start... well... DIGGING!
Your goal in the game is to dig around the island and find buried treasure of various sort. Pirate treasure, ancient lost civilization or just plain old junks. At anytime on the game you can click on the map to show your current location, like which island you are currently on and the island surrounding it. As you finished digging up the whole island and this seems to be a must in the game in order to advance to the next area. You will then be notified by the game of your completion and the map will open up the next island for you.
Treasure that you find will comes in a set, collect all the treasure and you get to trade in for a prize, depending on the treasure that you find. While some treasure is like great finding of the centuries, others are a bit disappointing. Imagine digging up a broken barrel and the game considers it a treasure.
Once in a while you, after you are bored with digging up treasures, you can just take your tiny boat to your home island. This is where the second part of the game comes in. Here you will be able to customize your characters look, their gender and the outfit they wear.
Other activities include planting of fruits which can be later harvest to be consumed as energy refills. Buy furniture to decorate your island into a Tiki heaven or just lay back and chill. Whatever your choice is you would not really find much to do on this part of the area really.
Now after all that, we will now look at how the game works a bit. First thing is that you character will have a stamina bar on top of the screen. This is to show you what the current stamina is and how much you can do before you need to take a break from your treasure hunting. Like most of the Facebook game out there is a small counter that will provide you information on how long before your stamina replenish. Best part of the game here is, you do not always have to wait for the stamina bar to fill up. If have planted fruits, this can be use to replenish lost stamina. If you run out of fruits, a call out for help from your friends at times makes a lot of difference as they can send you free food or energy replenish bar to allow you to continue your treasure hunting.
While during your treasure hunting trip, you will encounter at times Giant TIKI statue that will block your path to certain part of the island. Jewels found on trees will allow you to pass the Giant TIKI, however in order to get the correct jewel combination, one must have a few friends which can share with you the color jewel which will unlock the path you need to go to. Else you might just get stuck on that particular stage until you get the correct jewel.
Treasure Isle is really a pretty game to look at really. Its colorful environments and cartoon like character has an interesting kind of twist in it. Your character will move rather fluently and the animation of digging and chopping down vines and trees is nicely done. However, graphic alone would not make a it a good game, but it is still a nice eye candy nevertheless.
Treasure Isle does have a nice Caribbean music that plays during your treasure hunting trip which may remind you of the time on the nice sandy beach away from civilization (Ironically your character is away from civilization). The background Sound FX also adds very well as you can hear seagulls and the ocean noise which can be rather nice and peaceful to hear, unlike some sound which can be rather bothersome at times. Personally I do like how Zynga does with the sound in this game.
Treasure Isle is not really meant for everyone. I personally find it a bit dull compared to other games in Facebook. However if finding lost treasure is your thing, then you might find this game more appealing than I do.

It's widely reported that the launch of the Apple iPad was disapointing to say the least. It wasn't just the expected first generation bugs, or the odd name. It lacks 16:9 support, Flash support, multitasking, SD card slot, HDMI or high-res video output support, USB ports, GPS and the list goes on. It is also exclusive to AT&T's network and the 3G wireless add-on is $130 extra with a data limit of 250MB per month. That's a joke I can burn through that much data in a day on the internet. I would say that some of these missing features will eventually come along but seriously folks; this is a work in progress. Would you want to buy one right now knowing that it is the first generation release complete with bugs and all? I need to be convinced that buying the iPad is going to be a better choice than a notebook.
What Apple needs to do is not try to make this seem better than a notebook because I don't see how at this point it really is. The iPad is a fancy news print reader, or a replacement for paper. This makes it ahead of its time. The idea of tablet computers is nothing new; Microsoft has been working on one for years. I just believe that Apple would be better suited to try to market the iPad as something that could be used in schools or could be used as a way to revolutionize how we read our news every morning.
I'm going to stick with my laptop for now and see what happens with the iPad before I spend a fairly good chunk of money on one. Let the bugs get worked out first.
