Media Molecule talks up DLC, shoots down LittleBigPlanet sequel

November 7, 2009

It’s hard to believe that until 1929, we were pretty sure that the Universe consisted entirely of our galaxy, and everything else was inside of us.

Hard to believe that you can look at something like this and not think it was another galaxy like our own, isn’t it?

Yet when you look in the visible light — which is all they knew how to do back then — this is what the pinwheel galaxy (above) looks like through a modern advanced amateur telescope.

Microsoft Courier UI details leak: perfect pen/finger balance?

November 5, 2009

Microsoft’s Courier project – a dual-display “book” style electronic journal – has been intriguing us since it first leaked back in September, and the latest spillage of UI details courtesy of Gizmodo’s mysterious tipster is doing nothing to temper our interest.  The twin screens are both multitouch-capable and respond to fingers and the special stylus, the latter having two side-buttons (the upper one being an “undo” key), an eraser on the other end, and a rotating barrelSource: SlashGear RSS Feed

November 3, 2009

Top this, hypermilers — Klaus Savier managed to get 45 mpg while traveling 207 mph. No, he’s not driving some super-Prius or streaking down the Bonneville Salt Flats in a Jetta diesel. The impressive number was posted by a pilot in a 400-mile air race over Arizona last month.

What caught me off guard was the amount patience and memorization required to survive this boss battle. I found my self tearing my hair out and yelling at the TV much like I did my fist play though of Mega ManSource: RSS Feed
