Nintendo Desperately Needs To Pick Up Speed, Fast

Sigh, this is so sad. Nintendo's latest report earnings showed massive negative numbers (70.3Million Yen), up to $925 Million of net loss during the 6 months up to September; and to make matters worse, according to Bloomberg, it is the company's first annual loss in 30 years!Well, it's actually not a surprise to me that they made a loss this time around, but I was definitely shocked when I saw the degree of what they lost. It's terrible.

Rockaway Fest: Pop Shuvit feat. Project E.A.R and One Buck Short

the crowd at Rockaway Festival 2011

So basically I had the chance to cover the event where 19 rock superstars locally and internationally come together and easily form the biggest Rockshow in Malaysia (as promised by the organisers) and damn, it was awesome. Mind you, it's my first concert as well as my first media coverage, how cool is that! Haha alright, back to topic, the main organisers was of course Livescape and popular local band artise One Buck Short. So kudos to them for putting together the amazing show, despite some minor delays and hiccups.

Iris, the Siri of Android Unveiled

If you are observant enough, you would notice that Iris, an acronym of "Intelligent Rival Imitator of Siri", is spelled in reverse of Siri. But in actual, Iris is exactly like Siri, a voice-recognition software system specially crafted which supposedly aims to become our new generation of personal assistants. On whether they actually achieve what they were meant for, we'll talk about that later. For now, let's take a look and speak into the all-new Iris.

Rockaway Fest 2011

To be honest, I wasn't a big fan of any of the acts; but anyway since it was my first media coverage under the Young News Network Program (for, I was extremely excited. In fact, Rockaway Festival 2011 is my first concert in my life, can you believe it? Anyway, here are some photos to start the week.

Nvidia Unveils an Impressive 3D Gaming System

Nvidia, the leading technologist in PC gaming, has once again ventured beyond the barriers of gaming - and this time, evolving the power of 3D gaming. Enhancing its first generation goggles, the latest 3D Vision system features a 20 percent larger lens (not very sure whether its better though as it might strain the eyes even more) and redesigned glasses made of softer, more comfortable materials.

Is Real Steel Hinting That Xbox 720 is only arriving in 2020!?

I'm going to explain some essentially important thoughts of mine first:

First of all, I'm really excited for the new consoles, or rather, the so-called "next-gen" consoles. Secondly, the movie trailer for Real Steel looked amazing the moment I saw it circulating around Facebook. Thirdly, when I noticed that "Xbox 720" was printed in Real Steel's trailer, I almost went "holy shit" !

Puss In Boots Turns Ninja! [iOS]

Somehow, I've always loved Puss In Boots. The movie is debuting on the 28th of October; and if it wasn't enough, the awesome, one of the most lovable character in movie history (in my opinion), decides to collaborate with one of the most popular games on our smartphones - Fruit Ninja. Surely everyone has played it, right?

Remembering Steve Jobs: Contributions of a Legend

"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."
Steve Jobs - famed co-founder of Apple, the modern genius of our ubiquitous gadgets, innovative and legendary icon of our decade, I bid farewell to you.

It was so surreal, so shocking, so indescribably unbelievable. "No way! Steve Jobs can't be gone, he's only 56!" But yes, unfortuantely, it is confirmed. Trust me, it was like a slap on my face, my friends were talking about it, my teachers were lecturing about him and my parents were talking about how scary it was to die at the age of 56, and I agree, it is extremely difficult and unfortunate.
