Howard Lincoln launches Kickstarter for Know-It-All educational game
For those who remember the Eighties and appreciated gaming within them (aka everyone not named Steven Strom) then the name “Howard Lincoln” will ring several bells. Once the Gamemaster over at Nintendo — he was responsible for knowing EVERYTHING within its games — Lincoln has since bounced around the industry, leaving a great touch at every company he’s been to. Even today, he’s still dropping innovative game ideas on us.
His latest creation is a Kickstarter-backable educational game for mobile devices, Know-It-All. The puzzle software aims to teach short trivia-length information to its players, via audio and images, to help learn and remember facts quickly. The app has access to millions of facts that can be downloaded, and the ability to create and share with friends. Lincoln used to teach Nester the ways of life, and now he’s teaching us. There’s just hours left, so get on it if you’re interested!
There’s a 13 inch MacBook Pro coming with a massive retina display
This Tuesday, Apple intends to show us something new. We already think we’re going to see an iPad Mini, but what THIS intrepid writer is excited about is the OTHER new product rumored to be revealed at the event: a 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Our good friends at Engadget are reporting that a particular user on WeiPhone has scored some photos of the actual device. Man, Apple has a leaky ship these days. The display is purported to have 2560 x 1600 pixels. That’s a HELL of a lot, in case you’re following along.
What this is all coming down to is that Apple is pushing Retina across all of its products, from phones to tablets to computers, and quickly. That may be awesome for software, but when streaming video and websites are brought into the mix then we’re going to have an EPIC bandwidth problem coming up. Websites today look un-pretty on the Retina displays, and so either HTML 5 is going all vector, or those JPEGs will need to be HUGE. I guess we’ll know more when our bills go up in a couple years.
Dali-Questing: Storm Trooper Motorcycle Suits. ARE. AMAZING.
I like looking at motorcycles. I like Star Wars. The mind-numbing geniuses at UD Replicas have seemingly set up shop in my brain and are creating what they find. In this case it’s Storm Trooper Motorcycle suits, almost exactly to design with the movie’s gear.
It comes in white and black and — give me enough money to buy one, dad!
