Windows 10 Mobile Actually Has a Few Games

One of the things that prevent people from using non-Android or non-iOS devices is the lack of App support - specifically games. While there are some truly useful non-game apps for the Windows Phone, they are few are far between. Hopefully that will change as we need a realy alternative and competition to Apple and Google. Still, if you want to get your game on, I found a short list of some of the best games for your Windows Mobile expereince.

This year, with Windows 10 Mobile available for various devices, we have also made a list of some of the best games you can play on the OS right now. These games expand across various genres including casual, racing, hidden-object, and strategy and simulation. However, it is noteworthy that most of these games are exclusive to Windows 10 Mobile, and may be available on Windows Phone 8.1 as well.

E3 Will Be (Partially) Public This Year

E3 is just around the corner and it seems that with the poor gaming market on blockbuster titles, they are opening a venue called "E3 Live" that will be open to the public to give them a taste of what they are missing. This will have a huge VR focus as the industry needs something to try and sell to consumers. High-quality games are rare, so I guess they will be trying to push a gimmick. There will be a lot more than that though, and there are more details at the link below.

All the same, it's a big step... and possibly a necessary one. Penny Arcade's PAX gatherings draw attention partly because they represent a rare chance to show new and upcoming titles to everyday gamers -- E3 Live gives the ESA a chance to join in the fun and possibly upstage its rival.

Going Driverless Off-road is in the Future

We were blown away by the progress that Ford has been making in the self-driving car game, and they figure they will be ready for a Level 4 vehicle within a few years - if the regulations allow for it of course. They do a lot of testing in Detroit where things aren't all that favorable, but that's nothing compared to the effort put forward by Georgia Tech as they have been working on algorithms to get cars off-road. It's pretty impressive. Not only is your car a better drive that you are in the city, it could possible win a rally race now too.

The metre-long electric rally cars house a quad-core i7 processor, Nvidia GTX 750 Ti GPU, and 32GB of RAM; GPS; and twin cameras in a crash-hardened shell. That, and the software algorithms developed by Georgia Tech, enables the car to game out over 2,000 projections of where it'll head in the next 2.5 seconds.

Motorola is Bringing Back the Razr

As cool as the Motorola Razr was back in the day - and even though we have tons of fond memories of the device, I'm not sure if it will fly as a small screen flip phone here in 2016. I'm not sure if that's what they are teasing here, but it seems that we can expect something from Motorola here in June.

 

Star Trek Beyond Trailer

While not exactly tech related, it's movie-geek related and that's almost the same thing. The lastest trailer for the upcoming Star Trek movie is out and if you're a fan of the J.J.Abrams reboot, it may get you a little excited.

 

Overwatch Animated Short: Hero

The last animated short of Overwatch has been released just prior to the launch of the game. Check out "Hero" below.

Biggest Announcements from Google I/O 2016

Google has been holding their Google I/O conference this week and have had a few interesting announcements that have people talking. Google announced their Daydream VR platform, showed off their Facetime competitor Duo, their Amazon Echo competitor called Google Home, and of course Android N. The announcements didn't stop there and The Verge has a list of the top 10 Google I/O announcements.

At I/O this year, Google displayed its vision for a more ubiquitous and conversational way of interacting with technology. Its Assistant is chattier, answering natural language queries with a more human voice, and it’s found its way into several new Google products: the messenger Allo and the Echo-like speaker Home. Both are areas where other companies have a lead, but Google’s strength in AI gave these services some nice twists, doing things like automatically generating surprisingly specific reactions to photos.

Google also announced improvements to Android — though N, out of beta this summer, still needs to be named — as well as a mobile VR platform that will come with the new OS. There’s a FaceTime rival Duo as well, and a way to run Android apps without downloading anything. Below are the 10 biggest announcements.

Nokia to enter Android market

Nokia is back, but this time they're joining the Android side. Nokia sold their phone side of the business to Microsoft a while back (which became the Lumia phone lineup from Microsoft) and now they're giving it another go, but this time using Android. Nothing is scheduled but they are making the announcement that Nokia is back in the phone business. You can read the full press release here.

We are proud to announce that the Nokia brand will be returning to the worldwide mobile phone and tablet market.

Every day our fans continue to ask for Nokia smartphones. In fact, in a recent survey, we found that Nokia smartphones are amongst the top five considered brands for purchase by smartphone buyers – and they aren’t even available yet.

So, under a new agreement, Nokia Technologies has granted HMD, a new company led by some of the world’s top mobile specialists, an exclusive global license to create a full range of Nokia-branded smartphones, tablets, and feature phones for the next decade.
