Samsung has a new netbook coming that is going to be almost just like the N100 that has been tipped in the past. The N100 is a machine that runs the MeeGo operating system. The N102 will have the same 10.1-inch screen and Intel N435 processor inside. The difference will be the OS.

Whereas the N100 runs Meego, the N102 will run Windows 7 Starter. Both the N100 and N102 will run 1GB of DDR3 RAM, the processor is a slow 1.33 GHz, and the storage will be to a 250GB HDD. That means this will be no speed demon.

The screen has an anti-glare coating and a resolution of 1024 x 600. Graphics are going to be via Intel GMA 3150 integrated. Power comes from a 3-cell battery and the netbook has a memory card reader, VGA port, and more. The N100 is expected to be around $200 with the N102 at $299.

You might have thought you had played Virtua Fighter 5 about four years back. You thought right! And wrong at the same time. It’s kind of the same logic that gives birth to about three new Street Fighter IV editions a year (we think, though make sure to Wikipedia it if you care that much), each more Hyper and Premium-Extremo than the last.

However, logic has very little to do with kicking people in the head, so let’s leave it aside for now, at least long enough for us to put the word out there that Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is coming to a home console digital delivery platform near you. The game is apparently "a full overhaul of Virtua Fighter 5‘s mechanics, balance and animations,” as well as, and you might want to sit down for this one: new costumes. Somewhere, god just killed an indie developer. And a puppy.

MetroPCS is a pre-paid carrier that offers service in many areas with no contract. The company has announced that it has landed a new smartphone for users to check out called the Samsung Admire. The Admire is an Android device and it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The smartphone has an 800MHz processor and a 3.5-inch touchscreen. The device also has WiFi and a 3.2MP rear camera with video recording capability. This is no top of the line smartphone, but with no need for a contact, it may be appealing to some.

The Admire will work with the MetroPCS unlimited plans. You can order one up for $129.99 and the rate plans for the smartphone are $50 or $60 monthly. This might be a nice smartphone for the person wanting Android on a budget.

Good news! Ubisoft’s seething hatred for its customers seemed to have simmered down to a slow boil. As a result, Eric Chahi’s well-received… RTS? God game? uhh… game will be drawing its first free offline breath about two weeks from now. We’re not sure what finally led Ubisoft to the conclusion that inflicting online multiplayer game problems on an offline single-player game without any reasonable justification was a valid business model, but we’re just glad they finally did.

"This development time is required as we are working to ensure that those who have already started the game, and who’s progress is currently saved on our servers, will receive and save their game information locally,” according to Ubisoft. "Once the patch is ready, players who already have the game will automatically receive the update on their next login and subseque ... Read more »

It’s hardly a theory and the only guys testing if it were possible are running models in Mexico. See, the idea goes that in the darkness of our past when bacteria enjoyed dominion over a malformed world, particles broke off or were convulsed out of the Earth’s crust, sending them to the stars. What happened next? Read more after the jump.

Based on simulations at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, thousands of particles ‘ejected’ from Earth have reached Mars and beyond. (Remember: according to the simulation.) Of course, this is essentially toying with an unproven scenario, but the scientists involved are encouraged by the results so far.


What they ultimately want to find out is if such a phenomenon as Earth-based comets did exist, the question remains if it somehow brought microbial life on our planet elsewhere. At the rate they’re going, it will take some time befo ... Read more »

Quite a sight , to be honest. Below is every single robot that has figured in movies for the past century. Movies and cartoons and TV shows to be specific. The challenge, however, is to spot Wall-E. That’s why it’s called Where’s Wall-E (get it?) We’ve already pinpointed where he is, but we’re not telling (there’s a hint after the jump.) On the other hand, his love interest Eva is in plain sight.

If you’re wondering who bothered creating this brain-torture, it’s none other than animator/artist Richard Sargent. The man is mad about robots from science fiction movies and has finally gone about assembling all of them in one canvass. A few familiar highlights are an ABC Warrior, a classic old school Autobot, Bender from Futurama, and R2D2 (of course.) The difficult part is spotting Wall-E. It takes a good dose of concentration to do so, but it’s worth a try. However, is the pic ... Read more »
