Game. On

As we kick off the news for Monday, we've got a few game reviews - mostly from HardwareHeaven as they have a hard time getting into gear on a Monday and would rather be playing.  They've got Rayman Orgins on the PSV and Total War: Shogun 2 as well as Blacklight Retribution on the PC.  On the console side of things, they bring us Twisted Metal for the PS3 and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for the Xbox.  All-in-all there is some good gaming fun.

Photoshop CS6 Beta Available

Adobe has opened up the beta for Photoshop CS6 and it's been going like hot-cakes.  There are a ton of feature enhancements, improvements and some wizardry all taking place behind the scenes as it allows you to manipulate (easily) almost anything in your image and gives you the ability to rearrange anything and everything seamlessly.  You can take crappy pictures and pass them off as masterpieces with this program.  In a way, I'm kind of opposed to this idea, but I guess it's progress.  Go download the beta (for free) over here.  Of course, Adobe is hoping you'll get hooked and buy the full version later.

Nokia Lumia 900 Coming for under $100

Nokia is investing heavily in Windows Phone 7 (or Microsoft is investing heavily in Nokia), and the Lumia 900 is the "big one" that we've been waiting for.  The cost of the device was a mystery until AT&T announced that it would be available on a 2-year contract for $99.  That is great news and with a bold move like that, may actually get some people to try WP7 and Nokia - again.  CNET has more info.

here's a lot at stake with this launch. Nokia badly needs a buzz-worthy hit product in the U.S., a market it has struggled to operate in over the last few years despite dominating early in the cellphone business. AT&T hopes the 4G LTE-capable Lumia 900 will spark interest in its still new next-generation network. Microsoft, meanwhile, needs any Windows Phone to succeed in the market and establish some legitimacy to its platform.

Tablet War!

HardwareLook has posted up their review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 recently and gives us their take on the 1GHz Dual-Core tablet running Android 3.1 Honeycomb.  Overall, it has some nice features, but if you want something a little more impressive, check out the Transformer Prime Android 4.0 ICS over at HardwareHeaven.  This thing is a sweet beast.

Transformer Prime

As with its predecessor, the Transformer TF101, the Transformer Prime can transform with the addition of the keyboard from tablet PC form factor to laptop. The keyboard dock also contains a second battery which adds up to six hours extra battery life. While connected the battery in the keyboard charges the battery in the tablet, making the tablet battery always 100% while the keyboard battery has any charge left.

GeForce GTX680 Launch

NVIDIA's Fermi architecture is not bad, but they are trying to step up to the plate with their Keplar architecture and even though there was no word of this at CES, they still managed to pull off something pretty decent.  Take a look at see what the GeForce 680 brings to the table.


No Angry Birds Space for WP7

The new Angry Birds Space launched this week on pretty much every platform except Windows Phone 7. This is a bit surprising seeing as Angry Birds remains one of the top selling apps in the Windows Phone App Store but it really can't be great news to other developers when the biggest mobile gaming title appears to have given up on the WP7 platform. Ipodnn has the full story.

A notable, and somewhat surprising, omission from yesterday’s global launch of Angry Birds Space across multiple platforms was a Windows Phone 7 version. In what may amount to a significant blow to the prestige and perceived value of the Windows Phone 7 platform, Angry Birds Space developer Rovio told Bloomberg that it has no plans at all for a WP7 version. This is despite its original version of Angry Birds remaining one of the top sellers on the WP7 Marketplace.

Is the new iPad heat issue a big deal?

Chances are good you've probably in the past week or so heard someone talking about the new iPad and how it runs hotter than the iPad 2. The screen appears to be the one being blamed for this increase in heat due to the higher DPI (dots per inch) which is giving out up to 2.5 time more heat. Electronista takes a look at this new "heat issue" and tries to figure out if its actually a big deal or just a big fuss about nothing.

DisplayMate Technologies Corporation president Ray Soneira has delved further into the technology behind the new iPad's Retina Display as well as its relationship to the battery and come up with a simple conclusion: the new iPad, operating normally, should run a bit warmer than the previous model. He calls the thermographic portraits circulating the web "overblown" and says the extra heat is the natural consequence of increased power.
