It’s no secret that iOS mobile gaming leaves us wanting when it involves physical controls. Fortunately, at CES 2013, iFrogz is out to fill that void with the Quality Benefit iPhone case-gone-console. The Caliber Advantage, an iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch accessory, uses Bluetooth 4.0 to link to the corresponding enabled application as opposed to the phone itself. iFrogz points out that a handle Epic Games and Chair Enjoyment to build the basis for the Quality software powered by the Unreal Engine is in the works. In reality, later on this April the business will host its own designer conference intended at seriously expanding the platform and ideally adding support for previously launched titles.
Weding a case with a full-fledged controller definitely includes some mass, but after managing the prototype, the approximate half inch of added girth truthfully didn’t provoke any ill sensations. The body, while plainly hefty on the plastic, felt more strong than anticipated, and fairly natural to our hands. When it comes to the buttons? Crisp and responsive, hard though that may be to think. The device is set to retail at $ 70, and curious iOS gamers could do not hesitate to take a closer appearance in the gallery below.

No matter the amount of million first person shooters designers crank out for iOS, the platform & rsquo; s touch-based controls imply the games will never control as well as their console equivalents. Here at CES, mobile accessory maker Zagg is unveiling the best-looking option to the trouble we & rsquo; ve seen so far– the Quality Benefit. Its dual analog sticks provide gamers the exact same kind of accuracy as something like the PlayStation Vita or 3DS. And to get around the absence of content– iOS games don & rsquo; t natively support anything aside from touch input– Zagg is collaborating with Epic Games to include support for the controller in Unreal Engine 3-based iOS games. In the first half of this year, for $ 69.99, iOS gamers will get the closest yet to …

How did symmetry in most animals come into being?what selective advantage led to such symmetry?seems unnatural
Question by kmm4864990: How did symmetry in most animals come into being?what selective advantage led to such symmetry?seems unnatural
that we humans have a face with near perfect symmetry when so many other things that we would consider organic or natural almost completely lack symmetry. Such perfect order seems almost manufactured. Does this strike anyone else as perplexing?
Answer by paradizexi
haha, I believe that bilateral symmetry overtook radial symmetry was convenience for development of the brain (or an anterior end)
if you go up the “tree” a little, you see sponges – sucking in food from all directions
then you see jellyfishes, eating/pooing at the same opening
finally you get some worms where the eating and pooing are at opposite ends (again, for convenience and efficiency)
when you get to complex animals, not only do u have 2 openings, you also get a BRAIN at one end…

The Google TV update that rolled out to Sony units earlier this week (no word on the Revue, yet) brought tweaks to Chrome and support for Blu-ray 3D playback on the player, but that’s not all. The bump to Android 3.2 also improved hooks for developers to access channel listings in their apps, enabled hardware acceleration and last but not least, improved support for HTTP Live Streaming. That last detail is particularly important to those streaming video from their PCs using Plex, since additional HLS tweaks were necessary to allow viewing of files transcoded from otherwise-Google TV unfriendly formats. Also supported as in the Plex update is selection of alternate audio streams, subtitles, more channels and a few other fixes. Check out a Google+ post from Les Vogel of the Google TV team for all the Honeycomb 3.2 (API Level 13) details you can stomach, the Plex blog for more info on its software, or just make sure you’re running the latest updates and take a look around yourself.

Esther Dyson is the consummate early adopter. So I asked her recently what she thinks of Google+. In the video clip above, she gives her verdict. “They have the advantage of following Facebook,” she says.
By that she means that Google could look at what is wrong with Facebook and try to improve upon it. One of the main problems of Facebook, according to Dyson, is that you have an “undifferentiated mess of friends.” Google+ tries to solve this problem by getting you to put different groups of friends into different Circles.
Google+ is also asymmetrical. “It’s not two-way,” Dyson explains. You can put people in a Circle, but they won’t know if they are in the “Ignore These People” Circle or “People I Want To Stalk” Circle. “The defaults matter a lot,” says Dyson.
I point out that this could be confusing for many people. “You think it’s bad to have something that’s new?” she asks me. “Facebook is way ahead,” she points out. The trick for Google with Google+ is to “try to differentiate it without marginalizing it.”
Check out another part of this interview in which Dyson tells me her views on the future of the space industry.

Is there any end to the innovation going into modern power-strips? (The answer is yes, probably, unlike my absurd enthusiasm for such things). The USB-Controlled Power-Strip continues the inventiveness by adding a second cable to the four-hole adapter.
This USB port isn’t for powering your devices. Rather, it plugs into your PC and lets you control the sockets from there, cutting and supplying power at the click of a mouse. Because you don’t have to get up to plug in the printer, the thinking goes that you won’t just leave it powered up all the time just for the odd once-a-month use.
Having the on-off switch in software has another advantage, too: automation. That same printer can be automatically fired up when you hit the print button, for instance, or you can put your PC to work powering lights on and off. With a little smart scripting, I’m sure you could use your cellphone to switch on the coffee machine. This efficiency comes with a cost, though. In order to save from this automation, you need to leave the PC on 24/7.
The strip itself is a good one. Each outlet has its own fuse, and the sockets are universal, accepting any plugs you might have. Given that most of your gadgets are from your home country, putting the universal part on the other end might make more sense for travelers.
The strip will go on sale in August for an unannounced mystery price.
