New Rapid Fire Technology for Xbox 360 Modded Controller for Gaming

GamerModz Develops New Rapid Fire Technology for Xbox 360 Modded Controller for the Gaming Industry - GamerModz is the leading modding company in the gaming market that brings innovations by creating mods for the Xbox 360 Controllers giving you the competitive advantage. You can always find the best modded controllers from the oldest and original modded controller company.

Gone are the days of a single mode Rapid Fire controller working for every game and every weapon. Even the days of multi-mode (or multi-speed) Rapid Fire modded controllers have become limited in their functionality. The good news is that the most innovative controller modding company in the world has responded to the gaming industry with a technology that is un-matched.

With the on-going evolution of video games, their consoles and controllers, developers are trying to keep the playing field level by blocking the use of modded controllers. The unfortunate wall they continually run in to is that by limiting the advantage of Rapid Fire, or any modded controller, they effectively limit a gamer’s ability to excel in their abilities.

Game developers have tried to patch Rapid Fire by detecting the various ways it is done and limiting firing rates until a new game is started. This did not work out well because gamer’s that were not using Rapid Fire were being limited because they could pull the trigger quite fast. Since then, the new attempts to rid Rapid Fire modded controllers from use, was to take advantage of their inability to adapt to different speeds.

All other companies continued to just change the statically assigned speeds of their multi-mode (or multi-speed) Rapid Fire mods. The downfall to this is past compatibility, future compatibility and the lack of ability to adapt to the different speeds of different weapons.

HTML5 Game Maker for Windows Allows Everybody to Make Games

London Startup Scirra Launches HTML5 Game Creator — No Programming Required A new HTML5 game maker for Windows allows everybody to make games by replacing programming with a visual editor. Scirra has announced release of its new game creator, Construct 2.

Make HTML5 games with Construct 2 - no programming required

Games can now be made in Construct 2 using its visual interface without the user needing technical skills, Scirra has announced. It also serves as a rapid prototyping tool for advanced game developers. Users define their game logic by creating blocks called "events", which are intuitively readable. Animations, sounds and special effects can be dragged and dropped into the editor to complete the games.

Games made in Scirra's Construct 2 consist of just HTML, Javascript and images. Authors have total freedom to distribute their creations without restriction. "A drawback of other tools is you have to publish through the vendor's channels" says Director Thomas Gullen. "Our tool gives the authors total control."

HTML5 games can be played in any modern web browser including on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux. The free edition of Construct 2 comes with original music, sounds and art to inspire new game creators. The $32 "Standard Early-Adopter" license adds features and more media, and there are extra options for businesses.

WMA To MP3 – Convert WMA to MP3 Format Swiftly and Free

WMA To MP3 – Convert WMA to MP3 Format Swiftly and Free - Wma-to-mp3.org releases WMA To MP3 10.0.1, a new freeware audio converter to convert WMA to MP3 format and vice versa.

wma-to-mp3.org, an innovative media solutions provider, announces the release of WMA To MP3 10.0.1, a cutting-edge freeware audio converter to convert WMA to MP3 format and vice versa.


WMA is an audio compression technology developed by Microsoft to compete with popular audio formats like MP3 and Real Audio. Having said that, WMA has a wide presence too, for example, it is the only audio format supported by the Windows 7 system sound recorder. Unfortunately, it did not achieve the popularity growth due to DRM hassles and MP3 still continues to be the most popular music file format across the world. People with MP3 players sometimes face issues because the player won’t play WMA files. WMA To MP3 is an application to help people out of this dilemma.“We decide to launch the application to provide an easy, effective yet free solution to help people convert between the most popular two audio formats (WMA and MP3) on Windows platform.” said Anthony Leo, PR Manager of wma-to-mp3.org.

Nowadays, multi-core CPU dominates the PC market and mainstream computer runs faster and more smoothly than ever before. WMA To MP3 is well optimized to embrace the new era of parallel computing. It is ready for cutting-edge technologies like as SSE, Hyper-Threading and capable of fully unleashing the potential power of multi-core CPUs. WMA To MP3 runs much faster on multi-core systems and it makes the WMA to MP3 conversion more expeditious & timesaving. “According to our tests, the converting speed is over 200x on some new computers, that is to say, it is capable of converting a 45 minutes album of WMA files to MP3 within 15 seconds! If WMA To MP3 10.0.1 is not the fastest WMA to MP3 converter available, at least, it should be one of them.” stated Anthony Leo, PR Manager of wma-to-mp3.org.

The review boasts, “Strong, powerful sound” and that “The iK150 is one of the loudest, best sounding alarm clocks available”. David summarized his experience with the iK150, “I had to warn the people in the office before we turned it up to full blast.

Ultimate Single-chip 3D Projector Launch at CEDIA Expo 2011

Digital Projection Launches the Ultimate Single-chip 3D Projector at CEDIA Expo 2011 - The dVision 3D, one of the finalists for a "Best New Product" award at CEDIA 2011, delivers a flexible, powerful home theater display that's equally passive and active 3D capable.

Digital Projection's dVision 3D projector

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the dVision 35-1080p 3D, a dual lamp, single-chip DLP® 3D projector uniquely adaptable to both 2D and 3D applications. Equally capable of active and passive 3D, the 4,500 lumen dVision 3D delivers the most flexible, performance-driven single-chip 2D and 3D precision projector available today. Equally important are the oversized, precision optics that give the dVision 35-1080p 3D extreme installation flexibility, a welcome benefit to systems integrators.

At its core, the dVision 35-1080 3D is a high performance DLP® precision display. It employs two 300 watt lamps with a user-adjustable iris, allowing optimization of black levels balanced against a maximum light output of 4500 lumens. High brightness is critical for dynamic 3D viewing, as 3D standards and optics consume the majority of any projector’s native brightness. Synchronization with 3D glasses can be done either via IR or DLP link. In addition, for larger audience 3D applications, the dVision 3D can be outfitted with an optional LCD modulator to be used in tandem with a silver screen and inexpensive passive 3D glasses.

Many key features separate DPI’s dVision 35-1080p 3D from other products available in the market, but the key differentiator lies in the projector’s remarkable flexibility, uniquely adaptable to both 2D and 3D applications. Dual lamps, dual color wheels, and a unique X-port architecture make upgrading input cards a simple process. State of the art electronics allow the dVision 35-1080p 3D to accept multiple 3D formats and output at a full 1920 X 1080 pixels at up to 120Hz. Furthermore, the projector is easily optimized for 2D or 3D viewing in a variety of room lighting conditions. Combine all these features with 7 lens options and easy ceiling or table mounting and the dVision 35-1080p 3D becomes the most flexible and capable, mid-priced projector in the market.

LED Backlight TV Shipment Growth Increased in 2011

DisplaySearch: LCD TV Shipment Growth Falls to Record Low in Q2’11 as Global TV Demand Softens Further - Global TV Shipments Dropped 1% Y/Y While LCD TV Posted Record Low 6% Y/Y Growt

Global TV shipments were soft in Q1’11 as the worldwide TV supply chain digested excess inventory, but growth was still up 1% Y/Y. In Q2’11, TV shipment growth turned negative, declining 1% Y/Y and falling more than 6% Y/Y in developed regions, which more than offset 3% growth in emerging markets according the latest DisplaySearch Quarterly Advanced Global TV Shipment and Forecast Report. Softer price declines and inventory pressure at retail due to lackluster consumer demand continue to put pressure on TV brands.

“Q2’10 was a very strong shipment growth period due to greater price erosion and more confident consumers, so the comparison of this year’s shipments to a year ago is tough, especially considering the surge of shipments in early 2010 due to anticipated demand related to the World Cup Soccer tournament,” noted Hisakazu Torii, Vice President of TV Research at DisplaySearch. Torii added, “Due to weakening macro-economic conditions, similar to what happened during the global financial crisis of 2008-2009, the TV industry is becoming somewhat pessimistic and reducing inventory, especially in North America and Western Europe.”

LCD TV shipments worldwide grew at least 20% each quarter in 2010, but so far have only risen 9% Y/Y in Q1’11 and 6% Y/Y in Q2’11. The slowing growth has impacted both developed and emerging markets, with LCD TV units falling 5% and rising 19% respectively, both well below the rate of growth a year earlier. The main inhibitor to faster LCD TV price erosion, something that has a strong positive impact on consumer demand in the highly elastic TV market, has been the transition from CCFL to LED and slower component pricing declines. LED share increased from 18% of LCD TV shipments in Q2’10 to more than 43% in Q2’11, but still carries a 74% average premium across all sizes, though this is down from a 120%+ premium a year ago. Critical LED backlight cost breakthroughs have been slow to materialize.

Sony Announces Latest Innovative Powerful DSLR Cameras

Sony Announces New Innovative Powerful DSLRs, B&H Photo First to Release Camera Information - Sony has announced new innovative DSLR cameras that feature fixed translucent mirrors, enabling exceptionally high-definition stills and video with zero image black-out, full-time phase-detection autofocus for stills and video, with full manual focus and exposure overrides.

Sony Announces Latest Innovative Powerful DSLR Cameras

Sony has announced three unique 24.3MP APS-C format cameras: the Sony alpha SLT-A77, SLT-A65 and NEX-7. Sony’s new alpha SLT-A77 and SLT-A65 are second-generation DSLRs that feature fixed translucent mirrors, which makes it possible to shoot exceptionally high-definition stills and video with zero image black-out, full-time phase-detection autofocus for stills and video, with full manual focus and exposure overrides. B&H Photo is the first to release camera information.

The top gun among the three cameras is the Sony alpha SLT-A77, a burly, weatherproof magnesium-alloy DSLR that—in addition to JPEG and RAW capture (up to 12 frames per second)—can also capture HD AVCHD 60p/60i/24p video, including uninterrupted sequences of up to 29 minutes in length. Other features found on the SLT-A77 include a 19-point / 11-cross AF system; ISO sensitivity levels up to 16,000; a built-in GPS for geotagging; Auto HDR and Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO); dual memory card slots (SD/SDHC/SDXC & Memory Stick PRO Duo & PRO-HG Duo); 1200-zone evaluative exposure metering; shutter-lag times as short as 0.05 second; and up to 530 exposures per charge.

The viewing system on Sony’s new top-gun SLT consists of a 3.0”, 921,000-dot hi-def, three-way tilt/swivel LCD that maintains alignment of the LCD and lens; and the world’s first 2,359,000-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF), which enables clarity that simply blows away any other EVF in its class.

Samsung and LG ready for Gen-8 AMOLED-TV Pilot Production Plans in 2012

DisplaySearch: AMOLED Manufacturing Capacity Forecast to Nearly Triple in 2012 Ramp-Up of the First Gen 5.5 AMOLED Fab to Dramatically Increase Availability of AMOLED Panels

The long-anticipated growth in size and volume of AMOLED display manufacturing is finally becoming a reality, with Samsung Mobile Display’s (SMD) ramp-up of the first Gen 5.5 AMOLED fab. The company began installing equipment in its A2 factory in December 2010 and is now expected to reach maximum capacity of 80,000 substrates per month by the end of Q1’12. As analyzed in the DisplaySearch Quarterly FPD Supply/Demand and Capital Spending Report, this development is forecast to drive growth in AMOLED capacity from 890,000 m2 in 2011 to 2.6 million m2 in 2012; capacity is expected to then double again in 2013.

“SMD currently accounts for nearly 100% of commercial AMOLED shipments, and its A2 Gen 5.5 fab and planned future factories will account for much of the expected capacity growth. Other existing and potential AMOLED manufacturers are watching SMD’s progress and aggressive expansion plans, hoping that they will be able to leverage advances in equipment technology and take advantage of growing interest in AMOLED displays for smart phones and other applications,” explained Charles Annis, DisplaySearch Vice President of Manufacturing Research. “AUO, LG Display, Chimei Innolux and IRICO are also forecast to build either pilot or mass production AMOLED lines in the next two years, while other companies are currently considering entering the market.”

LCD panel makers have suffered negative net profit margins for four consecutive quarters, and with excess a-Si LCD capacity for TV production, FPD equipment spending is now forecast to fall by more than 40% in 2012. On the other hand, supply of AMOLED displays has been very tight in 2011. As SMD ramps A2, many more AMOLED displays will hit the market, and demand is expected to grow in turn. AMOLED displays are a bright spot in the FPD manufacturing industry, offering hope for FPD supply chain companies.

Professional-Grade Lightweight Camera Slider - CineSkates™

CineSkates Compact Camera Sliders Delivers Fluid Video Shots - Cinetics™ is launching a professional-grade yet lightweight camera slider, CineSkates™, which allows filmmakers to capture stable, high-resolution video footage without lugging heavy gear. CineSkates combines cutting-edge skateboard technology with the flexible GorillaPod Focus™ Tripod, allowing the amateur or seasoned filmmaker to achieve fluid camera movement in space-constrained environments where traditional camera sliders, dollies and cranes are too cumbersome.

Professional-Grade Lightweight Camera Slider - CineSkates™

As a filmmaker himself, Cinetics founder Justin Jensen had trouble finding camera equipment to capture a steady motion shot without having to carry bulky gear or even require an assistant. “Today’s cameras allow you to take high-resolution video in a small form factor, but the result can be shaky and distracting if you don’t have stability. I wanted a camera slider that was lightweight and mobile for professional events or even spontaneous shots, which became the design principles for CineSkates.”

Developed in an MIT MediaLab class, CineSkates is a unique set of wheels that attach to a tripod and enable the user to put their video in motion. They are designed to work specifically with the GorillaPod Focus™ tripod, and a ballhead, like the BallHead X, also from JOBY®.

CineSkates adds captivating motion to product demo videos, wedding films, music videos and other high quality productions in a portable form factor. Filmmakers can produce shots that have previously been impossible or only achievable with bulky and expensive camera equipment, such as:

Apple Retakes Top Mobile PC Market Share Position from HP in Q2’11 - Apple shipped over 13.5 million mobile PCs in Q2’11 for 136% Y/Y shipment growth, overtaking HP for the top spot, according to preliminary results from the latest DisplaySearch Quarterly Mobile PC Shipment and Forecast Report. Nearly 80% of Apple’s mobile PC shipments were iPads, which reached over 10.7 million units, for 107% Y/Y growth. Apple’s total mobile PC shipments (notebook and tablet PCs) were 3.9 million units more than HP’s nearly 9.7 million units for the quarter.

From a category perspective, tablet PCs continue to be the engine of growth for the mobile PC industry. Tablet PC shipments were up nearly 70% Q/Q and over 400% Y/Y with nearly 16.4 million units shipped in Q2’11. Notebook PC shipments were down 2% Q/Q but up 2% Y/Y with nearly 48 million units shipped in Q2’11. A consumer notebook PC adoption slowdown continues to hold back the industry following a 2% Y/Y drop in shipments in Q1’11. Worldwide mobile PC shipments (including notebook and tablet PCs) reached 64.4 million in Q2’11, up 10% Q/Q and 28% Y/Y. Among the top five players, Acer experienced the largest decline in shipment growth. Acer’s shipment growth declined in Q2’11, falling 4% Q/Q and 12% Y/Y.

In the notebook PC category, Samsung and Dell had the fastest shipment growth, up 44% and 33% Y/Y, respectively. Dell was also up Q/Q with 27% shipment growth, as it continues to take advantage of a rebound in commercial market PC shipments. Samsung’s shipments fell 16% Q/Q as it was unable to build off of strong shipment results in EMEA and China. Still Samsung was able to top Q1’11 shipment levels in North America and Asia Pacific.

IEEE Latest Software Special Issue Focuses into Fun Computer Games

How Can Developers Program Fun into Computer Games? - In this IEEE Software special issue, researchers from gaming companies and academia take different approaches in making sure that games are fun, but also reliable and maintainable.

IEEE Latest Software Special Issue Focuses into Fun Computer Games

How can developers create fun computer games while also incorporating the right set of features and making them reliable, maintainable, and robust? The September/October issue of IEEE Software on “Engineering Fun” tackles that challenging question from several perspectives.

Games tap into psychological, aesthetic, and social pleasures that are extremely difficult to quantify and predict in a computer science context, note guest editors Clark Verbrugge, a McGill University computer science professor, and Paul Kruszewski, president of GRIP Entertainment.

Properties like being addictive, providing fun, and offering social validation are imprecise—in marked contrast to the myriad technical and software elements that go into creating a game. That makes game development an active area of research both for game development companies and academics, Verbrugge and Kruszewski say.

“The guest editors have done an impressive job of compiling articles that cover a gamut of issues related to the engineering underpinnings of an incredibly vibrant and economically successful domain,” said Forrest Shull, editor in chief of IEEE Software and a division director at the Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering in Maryland.

Glasses-Free 3D Display - Holovision™ Technnology Patents Approved

Patents Approved for Holovision(TM) Glasses-Free 3D Display - Holovisions LLC, a Minnesota-based company developing new technologies for glasses-free 3D display with full motion parallax, is pleased to announce the approval of three new U.S. patents (7,889,425, 7,957,061, and 7,978,407) enabling its Holovision™ 3D display technology.

Glasses-Free 3D Display - Holovision™ Technnology

Unlike most methods of 3D display, Holovision™ does not require special eyewear and can potentially provide full motion parallax for multiple viewers in many directions throughout a wide viewing zone, can produce non-transparent images, and can create large-scale displays.

The first patent underlying Holovision™ technology is U.S. patent 7,889,425 -- “Device with array of spinning microlenses to display three-dimensional images”. Each spinning microlens in this device redirects light rays from one or more small image elements. Different content is seen from different viewing angles. The image contents displayed by small image elements are coordinated with the movement of the spinning microlenses, through which these image contents are directed, to form a pattern of light rays with the proper content and directionality so as to create the perception of 3D images. The second patent underlying Holovision™ technology is U.S. patent 7,957,061 -- “Device with array of tilting microcolumns to display three-dimensional images.” Each tilting microcolumn in this device allows the passage of light from one pixel. The interior of the microcolumn allows the passage of light, but the wall blocks or reflects light. The third patent underlying Holovision™ technology is U.S. patent 7,978,407 -- “Holovision™ 3D imaging with rotating light-emitting members.” Changes in the content of light rays from the light-emitting members are coordinated with changes in the directions of these light rays so that viewers in different positions can see appropriate three-dimensional images.

Rugged Battery-Powered All-In-One Mobile Server - Vigor EX-B

Rugged, Battery-Powered Server from NextComputing Brings Local Cloud Computing to the Field - All-In-One, deployable server delivers virtualized computing resources to tactical operations centers

Rugged Battery-Powered Mobile Server - Vigor EX-B

NextComputing, a leading provider of portable workstations and dense, small-footprint servers, announces a new rugged portable server solution for forward deployed military environments or any remote location that requires enterprise computing resources. The Vigor EX-B is NextComputing’s first completely battery-powered and fully mobile rugged server, able to run on its own internal power for up to 4 hours. Designed to support tactical operations centers and other mission-critical environments, the Vigor EX-B is the ideal platform for delivering virtualized “local cloud” computing services to multiple users in a remote setting.

As cloud computing continues to grow across multiple industries, off-site operations are often seeking solutions to provide these types of services in the field. While traditional rackmount servers can do the job, these systems and their associated rack infrastructure – including power conditioning, switching, KVM, etc. – are often impractical in a tactical environment where size, weight, power and mobility are important factors. Electrical power is usually unreliable in these situations, and a typical UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) can only run a server for a very short period of time. And though laptops are usually the preferred platform for client systems, these computers are not up to the task of running multiple concurrent applications and operating systems with virtualization – a requirement for deploying cloud services.

Timex Run Trainer Watch with GPS Pacing and Heart Rate Monitor

New Timex Ironman Run Trainer GPS Watch - So Fly Every day good looks in a sleek package, fast satellite acquisition, soft chest strap and more make the new Timex Ironman Run Trainer the best GPS watch release from Timex ever. This is must have kit if you are a serious runner or an aspiring runner looking to improve.

Timex Ironman Run Trainer GPS Watch

Our test team at the Heart Rate Watch Company have been a touch suspect of the Timex GPS watch solutions until recently, but with the recent Timex Run Trainer we do believe they have once and for all got it right. By right we mean built-in GPS, not the dimensions of a small cooler, appears to be an every day watch, has an reasonable selling price, doesn't take 5 minutes to receive satellites, and integrates by means of Training Peaks Online Log.

Thanks to Timex rolling out the Ironman Run Trainer in October of 2011 and offering a under $200 runners GPS watch, this particular heart rate monitor seems positioned to do very well this Christmas.

Electronic Timers Galore

This Timex offers up to 5 programmable repeating timers with labels. This heart rate monitor offers a recuperation timer using a user defined time-span, which seems like a pretty cool attribute. We certainly have always advocated for measuring recuperation to determine how conditioning has improved.

Know What 'Cloud Computing' Is

Consumers Don’t Know What “Cloud Computing” Is, Even Though They Use it All the Time - While the term “cloud computing” is still confusing to many, the activities that constitute cloud computing are being performed by the vast majority of consumers, according to the NPD Group.

NPD’s Digital Software and the Cloud Report

According to a recent study from The NPD Group, a leading market research company, just 22 percent of U.S. consumers were familiar with the term “cloud computing,” which denotes software applications or processes that are accessed from the Internet, rather than on personal computer hard drives. While the term “cloud computing” is still confusing to many consumers, the activities that constitute cloud computing are being performed by the vast majority of consumers.

More than three quarters (76 percent) of U.S. respondents in NPD’s “Digital Software and the Cloud Report” reported using some type of Internet-based cloud service in the past 12 months -- with email, tax preparation and online gaming leading the way. Even so, the enormous usage of these cloud-based services has not completely supplanted desktop-computer-based applications: Nearly one quarter (24 percent) of U.S. consumers reported purchasing a computer-based software application in the past six months.

“Whether they understand the terminology or not, consumers are actually pretty savvy in their use of cloud-based applications,” said Stephen Baker, vice president of industry analysis for NPD. “They might not always recognize they are performing activities in the cloud, yet they still rely on and use those services extensively. Even so, they are not yet ready to completely give up on traditional PC-based software applications.”

Expert Tips to Protect Computer or Smartphone Data in Hot Weather

24 Hour Data Recovery Service Says Protect Data In the Record Heat This Summer - Avoid the need for 24 Hour Data Recovery Services by protecting your data from high temps this summer.

The entire country is facing record high temperatures this summer, with 1,479 daily records for highest temperatures broken in various parts of the country. Abilene, Tex., holds the record for the most 100-degree days, with 47 through the end of July. And we've just hit August, the so-called “dog days” of summer.

Expert Tips to Protect Computer or Smartphone Data in Hot Weather

You don't need a data recovery expert to tell you that heat is bad for electronics. That's why laptop and desktop PC computers and Macs have cooling fans, and computers and servers should always be run in an air-conditioned environment during the summer.

Computers and servers not only give off their own heat, they can fall victim to outside temperatures, as well. Typically, the larger a computer component -- such as a RAID server -- the more heat it gives off, so proper cooling measures become even more important.

“101, 102, 104... These hot temperatures are no joke to business owners, entrepreneurs, and busy families who store their entire lives on their PC, MacBook, netbook or smartphone,” says 24 Hour Data owner Sean Wade. 24 Hour Data is a full-service, 24-hour expert data recovery company based in Plano, Texas, and serving the Dallas-Fort Worth area and the entire U.S.
