Nokia took to its blog today to introduce Xpress Now, an enhanced version of its Xpress browser. Made for Asha devices, the web app delivers personalized content suggestions based both on your personal preferences and those of the browser’s “more than 80 million monthly users.” These new recommendations come courtesy of three separate browsers views: What’s Hot, You May Also like and Most Liked. The categories are largely self-explanatory, and we imagine suggested content will be more spot-on after the app has been around for a few months. For the time being, though, Nokia Xpress Now is in beta in India, and it should make its away to other countries later in 2013.

Ira is a nice floating head that lives in the woods and also a garage.
Everyone's gotta live somewhere, right?

He didn't have eyes, but no one's perfect.
Video game publisher Electronic Arts had already suggested that its upcoming Star Wars games might not be coming to the Nintendo Wii U, but it looks like the situation is more dire than that. EA tells Kotaku that the company is not currently making any games for the Wii U, period.
“We have no games in development for the Wii U currently,” spokesman Jeff Brown told the publication.
Though former EA CEO John Riccitiello actually appeared on the Nintendo stage at E3 two years ago to announce an “unprecedented partnership” for Wii U titles, the company claims its obligation is fulfilled, Kotaku reports:
Brown told Kotaku that that early run of EA games on Wii U represented EA delivering on its E3 2011 partnership.
Though EA is…

Amazon is today launching Cloud Player for PC, a desktop app that lets users natively play any music they’ve purchased from or stored with the online retailer — no web browser required. Any songs, albums, and playlists that have been added to your account are fully accessible from the standalone app, and offline support is also baked in; Amazon says Cloud Player for PC can be configured to automatically download MP3s or transfer any new tracks in your library to the cloud, much like its existing Music Importer tool for PC. Like before, users can import a maximum of 250 songs to Cloud Player before they’ll need to upgrade to a more spacious tier. (Songs purchased from Amazon MP3 and digital copies of AutoRip albums don’t count against…
Question by Carlos: Does anyone remember this cartoon show with a robot and 3 teens?
Does anyone remember a cartoon about 3 teens with a robot? The teens were a girl with red hair, a fat guy who looked like a trucker, and a skinny emo guy who wore a blue beanie. The robot was blue and had flame designs on it. Here’s what they look like. http://puu.sh/hhuI. Anyone know the name of this toon?

Amazon has launched a Cloud Drive Photos app for iOS, letting owners of the iPhone and iPad join Android users in storing their photography on the company’s servers. The app allows users to both upload pictures to their Amazon Cloud account and to browse the photos that are already stored there. Like Apple’s built-in Photo Stream feature, Amazon’s app can automatically pull in all of the new photos taken on a device — though because of iOS’s limitations, the app can only do that whenever it’s opened. But unlike with Photo Stream, images uploaded to Amazon’s Cloud drive are able to be viewed online through a browser, not just within specific apps.
Storage for photos comes out of Amazon’s standard Cloud Drive accounts, which begin with…
Following weeks of rumors, Nokia is finally unveiling its Lumia 928 handset today. Verizon will stock Nokia’s latest flagship on May 16th, which includes a 4.5-inch OLED display, 8.7-megapixel camera, and wireless charging. Nokia’s latest flagship also includes a Xenon flash that the company has been teasing over the past few days.
Most of the hardware is similar to Nokia’s Lumia 920, but the company has also included a loudspeaker that, coupled with three microphones, will record sound up to 140dB and then play it back without distortion. Nokia’s Lumia 928 Xenon flash will be used exclusively for still images, with an LED included for video. The Lumia 928 will be available in white and black colors at Verizon stores and online from May…
The Slashdot community tracked down notorious software legend and international man on the run John McAfee and asked him WTF was going on. Pictured here in his latest disguise.
Q:Do you still write code, perhaps for fun?
McAfee: I haven’t written code in 20 years. In truth I was a terrible programmer. At all the companies I worked at I did everything within my power to avoid coding tasks. I was just good enough though to be able to spot the truly outstanding programmers. At McAfee I hired the best and then stayed out of their hair. If I had been responsible for even a tiny amount of code I fear we would never have gotten off the ground.
Q:Did you really evade the police by dressing up in a speedo and screaming at people in German, as you describe here?
McAfee: I favor disguises that change character rather than looks when running from the police. The German Tourist disguise was terrific. I looked exactly like me but no-one searching for me paid me any mind. Here is another common disguise I used that would work for any well known CEO.
Q:If I understand correctly, this whole episode began because a local politician visited you in your home and he had the expectation (for whatever reason) that you would pay him USD $ 30,000 as some kind of protection money for his campaign and your expectation was that politicians are supposed to work for people and not the other way around. Is this a reasonable characterization? If so, how do you think such a large missmatch in expectations came about? Do you think you were overly naive? Or is the political environment in Belize changing? I can easily believe that this might be the normal expected way that people do business down there based on other things I've heard, but I really have no idea. Now that you've had time to reflect, what would you say was responsible for the conflict in the first place?
McAfee: Had it been $ 30,000 I would have paid it in an instant, ushered him out and then returned to my task of molesting the underage girls (as some would characterize them) populating my property.However it was not. It was $ 2 million.I am not naive and I expect politicians and public servants, in all countries, to do one thing only – everything in their power to annoy, delay and inconvenience me. At least that has been my experience with public servants. Perhaps yours is different. In any case, two million was not even in a negotiating arena and, not being someone prone to wasting time, I told him to fuck off and not to come back.
Q:If you had to relive the whole debacle, what would you do differently the second time around.
McAfee: Absolutely nothing. Everything that has happened has brought me to this present moment – and not a bad moment at all. You may view my life as chaotic, tragic, comical, whatever. From where I sit it's a great adventure and an unending mystery. I have no complaints.
Ready for round two? Nokia is: it’s put the Galaxy S III and its own Lumia 928 back in the ring,challenging Samsung’s handset to an audio recording duel. The company’s latest video tasks both phones with capturing a musical performance in a New York subway. Naturally, Nokia uses the clip to promote the Lumia’s strengths, flipping back and forth between the 928′s clear, undistorted audio, and the much noisier recording captured on the Galaxy S III. A graphic overlay jumps and dips with the volume, peaking into the red distortion threshold whenever the view switches to the Samsung phone’s perspective. “Nokia Lumia retains audio quality under high volume recording with no distortion,” it reads, and indeed the Lumia’s footage does sound clearer by comparison, if a bit muted. What Nokia’s handset lacks in volume, however, it makes up in balance — not only is the audio free of distortion, it also lacks the echo picked up by the Galaxy S III. Smartphone audiophiles with a discerning ear can find the full video after the break.
