CryENGINE 3 gives us a glimpse at the future of gaming [video]

Devices like Apple’s iPad have shown the world that huge advances have been made in mobile gaming over the past few years. Featuring the Apple A5X processor with quad-core graphics, the third-generation iPad takes mobile video games to new heights on iOS devices, but technology blogs and the media tend to get a bit carried away in terms of comparisons between console gaming and mobile gaming. Gameplay itself paints an obvious picture, and the numbers do as well; Microsoft’s seven-year-old Xbox 360 console features floating-point performance of 240 Gflops and 500 million triangles while Apple’s brand new iPad is rated at a maximum of 7.2 Gflops and 35 million triangles.

An inside look at how iPads are made [video]

Apple’s iPad and the conditions under which it is built are topics that surface regularly on technology blogs and in the mainstream media. While the company did recently initiate a review by the Fair Labor Association, human rights organizations regularly take Apple to task for not doing more to ensure factory workers employed by its China-based manufacturing partner Foxconn are treated well. Foxconn and parent company Hon Hai employs hundreds of thousands of workers, however, and hundreds more travel from around the country each day to line up and apply for jobs at Foxconn’s various plants. Marketplace Shanghai bureau chief Rob Schmitz was recently given a rare opportunity at operations within Foxconn’s Shenzhen iPad factory, and his crew was permitted to film a number of active stations on the iPad assembly line that have never been seen before. The result is an inside look at some of the fascinating technology that goes into building the world’s most popular tablet. Marketplace’s video follows below. More →

Apple’s new iPad gets early unboxing [video]

Apple’s highly anticipated third-generation iPad doesn’t officially launch until this coming Friday, however the new tablet has already been unboxed on film. Vietnamese Apple blog Tinhte.vn managed to secure a new iPad ahead of its launch on March 16th, and carrying on the tradition of tech blogs past, the team there has posted an unboxing video starring Apple’s new slate. Specs and other details were made available when Apple unveiled the new iPad last week at a press conference in San Francisco, so no new information can be gleaned from the site’s unboxing. Anxious consumers waiting for their own iPads to be delivered on Friday — or at a much later date if they haven’t yet placed their orders — may enjoy seeing the sleek new Retina Display-toting tablet in action, however. Tinhte.vn’s iPad unboxing video follows below.

The most amazing fake iPad 3 you’ll ever see [video]

Apple will take the wraps off its highly anticipated iPad 3 next week and we have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Recurring reports point to an upgraded 9.7-inch display with 2,048 x 1,536-pixel Retina-like resolution, a faster quad-core Apple A6 processor, embedded 4G LTE connectivity on top of 3G and Wi-Fi, and a slightly redesigned case that is about 1 millimeter thicker than the iPad 2. We also have a pretty good idea of what not to expect, and that includes just about everything you’ll see in Aatma Studio’s iPad 3 concept video. More →

Permission loophole gives developers access to iOS photo library and location history

Permission loophole gives developers access to iOS photo library and location history

Earlier this month it was revealed that the popular social networking app Path was uploading entire iPhone address books to the company’s servers without first gaining permission. The data uploaded included full names, phone numbers and email addresses. Path quickly confirmed the report and issued an update to allow users to opt-in or out. The New York Times reported on Tuesday that a user’s address book isn’t the only information vulnerable on iOS devices, however. The publications claims photos can also be accessed by third-party app developers. Read on for more. More →

ABC looks inside Foxconn during ‘a trip to the iFactory’ [video]

ABC looks inside Foxconn during ‘a trip to the iFactory’ [video]

ABC recently became the latest news organization to be given a look inside consumer electronics manufacturing giant Foxconn’s facilities in Shenzhen and Chengdu, China, and the Nightline special that resulted from the trip will air on Tuesday. In the meantime, ABC News has posted a 90-second teaser video containing footage from reporter Bill Weir’s trip to China. Apple, of course, is the only Foxconn partner mentioned in the preview so we can expect the forthcoming report to focus on the Cupertino-based company’s wares, but the teaser promises a never-before-seen look at Foxconn’s facilities so it could be an eye-opening segment. Foxconn and its premier partner Apple have once again taken center stage in a human rights debate that recently saw protesters deliver a petition to Apple’s Grand Central Terminal store demanding the technology giant play a more active role in improving working conditions in the Chinese factories that assemble its hardware. ABC’s teaser video follows after the break. More →

The fourth major Birds release will be called “Angry Birds Space” and is scheduled to land on mobile devices on March 22nd. In the newest edition, users will be flinging birds on zero gravity planets with new gameplay features such as slow-motion and lightspeed destruction, according to Yahoo Games. “We think fans are really going to love it because we’ve already gotten amazing feedback on the physics of our games,” said Rovio’s GM of North America Andrew Stalbow. “They’re so accurate and easy to grasp that some teachers use Angry Birds in their lessons about projectile motion.” Rovio has confirmed that the game will have completely new birds along with some originals, who now possess various super powers. Since debuting in 2009, the franchise has been downloaded over 700 million times on iOS and Android alone.
