Android App Pick - WiFi Mouse

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and we are getting crazy productive this week.  WiFi Mouse is one of those programs that you probably won't use daily, but when you need a mouse for your PC, you'll be glad you checked this out - and have an Android device.  It's things like this App that makes me glad I'm not running Apple - and why we keep doing App Pick every week.  Check it out!


Xbox One - One Month Left & Mysteries Exist

I'm not sure why we've all come to expect to know everything before a product launch, but today consumers do expect more.  There is about one month left until the Xbox One launch and there are still a few things we don't know about the console that may be deal-breakers for some gamers.  There are things like Windows 8 App support that has been hotly debated and rumored as well as 3rd Party App support.  Take a look if you're still undecided and want to know a few more details.

Screenshots have shown that Netflix will (maybe) be included with the Xbox One, and Machinima recently announced their own app for the console. Twitch.tv has revealed it will also support the Xbox One but there's no word if that support will be ready for launch. More recently, reports that the console would be able to run all Windows 8 apps were partially, but not totally, refuted by Microsoft.

Evening Boredom

YPlan, an app that takes and organizes all the goings on in the next 24 hours and finally gives options for that boredom that won’t drop, is now out for android as of today. One other cool part is that as a user you may pay from the app instead of getting redirected to other sites.

After expanding from the UK into New York city last month, the social planning service is today launching an Android app.

The Sad Death of a Console

Nintendo has been a leader in innovation in the past and perhaps the most memorable innovation was the Wii. Sadly this system has now been put out of production. It has had a good run, being Nintendo’s best selling home console thus far.

Nintendo’s best-selling home console to date, which moved over 100 million units, has finally been retired. Kotaku noticed on Monday that Nintendo has updated its Japanese product page for the Wii with a short phrase which translates to “production ended.” Some consoles live much longer lives than the Wii, such as the PlayStation 2 — which has been through several redesigns since its release in 2000 — but Nintendo has decided to cap off its previous generation by shutting down production of the Wii all together.

Windows 8.1 Introduces Major Mouse Lag

If you've been (un)fortunate enough to actually have the Windows 8.1 install work instead of locking up your computer, making the upgrade impossible, you may be wishing you didn't.  Apparently, the way the new update handles mouse input can be horribly laggy in some games.  This is not a good thing at all, and I'm very glad I have yet to install it on any of the machines here at BCCHQ South.

In this case, according to a post on Reddit, the changes in the DPI framework have caused games that don't use Raw Input or DirectInput to get hit with a massive amount of mouse lag. Among the games that are being affected by these problems are Deus Ex: Human Revolution, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Prypiat, Metro 2033 and some games in Activision's Call of Duty series. It also seems to affect hardware that includes mice products with a high polling rate and high DPI.

14 Rabbits That May Be in Apples Hat

Apple has another major event coming up this week and after the under whelming iPhone 5C announcement as well as the less-than-stellar reception given to iOS 7, Apple really needs to pull some fun and amazing things out of their hat.  There are a few things that could be coming down the pipe, and if you want an educated guess of what we may get, take a look at the link below.

Mavericks: It's pretty much a given that Apple will announce a release date for OS X Mavericks, given that the golden master has been issued and even updated. Whether you're getting Mavericks this week or this month is the only question. This rabbit's got bunny ears.

BBM for Android and iPhone Roll Out - Details

While it certainly doesn't seem like that much of an "event", BlackBerry Messenger just hit the market for Android and iOS devices yesterday.  There is a lot of hype behind this App as the BBM service is actually quite good.  In order for users not to crash the servers, they are rolling it out slowly and you may be put on a wait list to have your account approved right now.  They are trying to gauge server load so they don't have the same disaster as when a beta leaked a couple of weeks back.

  1. Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser
  2. Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line
  3. We will email you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM
