Despite absorbing MeeGo, learning to run Android apps and pushing through a significant UI overhaul, devices running Tizen are notoriously hard to come by. Developers eyeing the platform in Japan, however, just got one more option: the Tizen build kit, from Systena. It’s a package that includes …
A few months back, rumor spread that a number of lost Doctor Who episodes were discovered in Nigeria. This morning, the BBC is making eleven lost episodes — nine of which have apparently not been seen for 46 years — available for purchase exclusively on iTunes. The broadcaster says it’s re-mastered the episodes to restore them “to the fantastic quality that audiences expect from Doctor Who.”
Vanguard Games and 343 Industries are launching a Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 version of Halo on Thursday. The top-down arcade shooter, Halo: Spartan Assault, is available in the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store priced at $ 6.99. As Microsoft’s Windows stores aren’t combined, there’s no universal application so you’ll have to pay separately for each version if you want to play them across a Windows PC, tablet, or notebook and a Windows Phone. In the US, Spartan Assault is limited to Verizon Windows Phone customers until August 16th.
A little awkward with touch
Nevertheless, this is fully touch-enabled version of Halo. Although the the Halo franchise is known as a first-person shooter, Spartan Assault attempts to blend touch and H…
Yearning to watch Norsemen amass loot while raiding foreign lands? If you’re in the UK, you can now watch US cable show The Vikings exclusively via Lovefilm Instant. The Amazon-owned service has made all nine episodes of the historical drama — shown in the US and in Canada on History Channel — available for streaming. The service’s subscribers in Germany won’t be left out, but as the show isn’t slated to go live for them until June 15th, they have a bit of waiting to do. This new addition to Lovefilm’s roster is a clear effort by the service to bolster its TV show offerings, seeing as it’s struggling to catch up to Netflix UK in that area. Lovefilm also inked a deal with Warner Bros in April to air popular TV titles One Tree Hill, The West Wing and Nip Tuck, although Netflix will have its own exclusive when Arrested Development season four launches tomorrow.

In November, we learned that Microsoft was planning to build original games for tablets and mobile phones, spreading the Xbox brand further than ever before, with a new UK studio called Lift London. Now, however, Microsoft VP Phil Harrison has clarified the studio’s mission: to build games for the cloud itself. “I wanted to create from scratch a 21st century studio. Not a studio that would make retail products; a studio that would make games for the cloud, putting together the most incredible talent ever seen in a start-up,” he told reporters during a London press conference. Though Harrison says the company will continue to support retail, suggesting that physical game discs might not go away soon, he suggested that the company’s future…

For the average Joe that have managed to stay out of the Apple circle, the Just Mobile brand might not right away ring a bell, but opportunities are you would’ve stumbled upon one of its peripheral designs at some point. The only issue is unless you knew the business in the first spot, you ‘d quickly presume that the aluminum or even plastic knock-offs are just based on common designs, due to the fact that there are merely a lot of of them. It’s no wonder Just Mobile co-founders Nils Gustafsson and Erich Huang take imitations of all formats really personally (especially the ones they and their lawyers see at CES), however thankfully, we were spared from prolonged ranting when we checked out the duo’s workplace in Taichung, Taiwan just recently. Exactly what we were treated to rather was an insight into how an accessory maker works with Apple and why Just Mobile makes specifically in Taiwan, as well as getting a preview of the upcoming AluRack, HeadStand and AluBase that are due out this month.

Leica M Monochrom captures exclusively in black and white, costs far more than your color-abled shooter
Wildly colorful photos got you down? There’s an 18-megapixel full-frame sensor for that. The Leica M Monochom may seem an unlikely proposition, with its monochrome-only sensor and $ 8,000 price tag (not to mention the added financial burden that comes along with investing in a Leica M-mount), but the camera offers some unique benefits that, for some, may justify the cost. Because the sensor is capable of outputting one pixel of data for each pixel captured — there’s no hint of color mucking about — the resulting images are incredibly sharp. There are low-light benefits as well, with the Monochrom offering a top ISO setting of 10,000, compared to 2500 with the aging M9. Other features include a 2.5-inch 230k-dot color LCD, a rangefinder-type optical viewfinder and a 14-bit uncompressed RAW mode that yields 36MB DNGs.
The camera itself offers an appearance consistent with other Leica snappers, and includes a magnesium alloy construction with hints of brass and chrome. Naturally, there’s no video features to speak of, so no 1080p black-and-white shoots for you. We do have pricing and availability, however, though we don’t exactly have the funds to match. The body-only M Monochrom is expected to retail for $ 7,970 when it hits stores (beginning with Leica’s Washington DC showroom) in July. A new Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH prime lens will be available around the same time, for the modest sum of $ 7,195. There’s a full PR just past the break.

Update: DPReview has posted a gallery of sample images. Don’t be so quick to dismiss this camera — plenty of deep-pocketed photographers have likely been waiting for something just like it. Hit up the source link after the break for the shots.
There’s a new ereader in town, gals and pals. The iriver Story HD will soon be available at Target for $ 139.99. While by all accounts, it’s a fine piece of hardware — 7.3 ounces, first six-inch XGA e-ink screen, SD card slot, WiFi, six week battery life — it’s the Google Books integration that will likely spur sales. This might be the best anti-Kindle/Nook ereader on the market.
Ereaders need access to a massive book marketplace to be successful. The Kindle has Amazon and the Nook B&N. The iriver Story HD is no different. However, instead of having a marketplace named after a famous bookseller, the new ereader uses Google eBookstore. This newish Google service uses the cloud for easy and convenient book storage, which allows multiple devices to share content much like the Kindle’s Whispersync.
This device marks a big milestone for Google. It’s the first dedicated ereader on the market for Google eBooks although the service is currently available on 80 Android and iOS devices. The new ereader might have a bit of trouble selling when placed next to the less expensive Kindle on Target shelves, but it is technically a stronger, more versatile device, which will likely ring true with a certain demographic.
The iriver Story HD will hit Target stores this coming Sunday, July 17 for the aforementioned $ 139.99.
