With the upcoming expected releases of Sony’s Playstation Four and Microsofts Xbox 720 we are not only moving into the next generation of gaming but what is predicted to be the last generation of console gaming. Console gaming has been a part of American and world culture since the release of the Magnavox in 1972 (an 8 bit 1.79mhz CPU running 64 bits of ram), 40 years later you would barely call that a computer.
The last generation of gaming systems spanned a nearly 8 year period, while coexisting with systems that were steadily climbing forward in their capabilities – they dominated the landscape for gaming. Herein lays one of the single greatest contributions to technology, the ability to have longevity through advancement in coding with hardware that does not change. Video game consoles are one of the few mediums in technology where there are no significant hardware changes through out the entire lifespan of the device, unlike in other computer systems RAM, GPU or CPU components can be switched out or added upon to meet requirements.
NASA is one of the few other only companies who have had to make improvements to a piece of technology purely on the coding side without the ability to tinker with the hardware when they had to increase the capabilities of their satellites to take images. Bethesda has done some pretty amazing things with the jumps they made in the visual presentation of Elder Scrolls Skyrim from Elder Scrolls Oblivion while increasing the size of the world their game occupies.
For a title boasting more than 300 hours of gameplay from the main story line, side stories alone, Bethesdas Elder Scrolls Skyrim has received it’s first official expansion. Dawnguard adds at the very least an additional 20 hours of gameplay to rummage through with a story line based on an old Vampire Lord that has come back to wreak havok, searching for the Elder Scrolls to blot out the sun. It’s your choice to either rally against him or help him out in his quest.
Before we get to the technical improvements of the game Bethesda has announced that they will not be porting the game over to the PS3 until the bugs with the game and the overall performance of the game are improved on that system. Skyrim had its share of bugs all platforms but the PS3 suffered one of the largest with a bug that prevented the game from rendering at all.
Quote from Bethesdas blog
“We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.”
Dawnguard brings in a few features both character skill wise, enemy wise and item wise that became popular on Elderscrolls ever growing custom mod community, namely the ability to use dragon bones for weapons. It was a bit of a curiosity why this forge skill was never included with the game on its release but it has become one of the more popular downloads for the PC version.
Dawnguard boasts some of the following additions to the game.
1. The ability to become a Vampire
2. Skill trees for both the vampire and werewolf classes
3. 19 new weapons to choose from.
4. 60 New characters
5 . 23 new locations
6. 12 new quests
Dawnguard also comes with a technical significance. It marks a continuation in a series of games that have community driven content that directs production of official releases that are reactionary to the desires of their customers. Bethesda has been able, with consistency, to create gaming experiences that are deeply interactive with a tremendous amount of longevity.

Can it be that the new iPod Touch will follow the iPhone in screen size? Well, sources say that the fifth generation iPod Touch will have a four inch LCD display. Is that too big for apple's target audience? Is our eyes used to the the beautiful 3.5 in display? I know we are all wondering on how it will turn out. Best to read on and let our imagination run with us.
"Citing its "Asian sources," Japanese blog site Macotakara claims that the fifth-generation iPod Touch will offer a four-inch LCD display, just like the upcoming new iPhone. But that's not all."
"The next iPod Touch could be equipped with the same processor found on the iPhone 4S, say Macotakara's sources, which means an upgrade from the A4 to the A5 chip. Other specs may match that of the iPhone 4S as well. The next model will reportedly have a different back-case style -- buffed aluminum instead of the polished stainless steel mirror design. And potential buyers may get a choice of black or white".
"The next-gen iPod Touch also has an extra hole on the lower part of the back case, but the sources had no clue as to its purpose."
"Adding further fuel to the fire, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a report yesterday saying that a new iPod Touch is in the works, as reported by MacRumors. The next model will be equipped with the same in-cell touch display technology reportedly slated for the next iPhone. Such technology helps keep the device thin and light."
"Kuo believes Apple will launch the new iPod Touch in September or October, the same time the next iPhone is expected to debut."
With the new iPod Touch set to be coming out in September or October and before we start saving our money up, let's just waited out and see what apple has in store for us.
The Video technique could lead to remote diagnostic methods, like the ability to detect the heart rate of someone on a screen.
“A new set of software algorithms can amplify aspects of a video and reveal what is normally undetectable to human eyesight, making it possible to, for example, measure someone’s pulse by shooting a video of him and capturing the way blood is flowing across his face.”
“Durand and his colleagues plan to make their software code available to others this summer.”
Shawn Kelly, a senior systems scientist has created a very little camera on glasses that translates images into a tiny chip that create electrical pulses that the brain can read. The electrical pulses stimulates the nerves in the retina so in that way the person can see. This system required a minimal induction power. Another proposal is powered by light that enters the eye. and other one is with an implant of 1500 pixel resolution that is inserted below the retina.
During the UC Summit at La Jolla California this week our CEO, Jason Juliano, had lunch with Unified Communications Analyst, Art Rosenberg. Mr. Rosenberg asked Mr. Juliano to comment on the state of Unified Communication he was experiencing with todays market. Mr. Juliano stated that the there is a high growth rate from his clients in the areas of mobility and cloud implementations using many telephony systems – Old and New. Mr. Rosenberg suggested a functional need with UC enabled Contact Center utilizing consumer facing business process management.
