Battlefield 3 already has our attention, EA, but a bit of reassurance can’t hurt. ”We have tried to get closer to the slang of the modern warrior. We are mixing tension-building passages with the chaos of suddenly erupting firefights. We’ve sought to keep the game feeling as plausible as possible, because the moment the audience stops believing it could happen, then you’re just like every other shooter,” according to lead designer David Goldfarb.

You might remember all this "modern warrior” hoopla from last year’s Medal of Honor, which, while a descent franchise reboot, was basically Medal of Honor Airborne with a new coat of paint using the modern setting as a crutch rather than an asset.

GRAIL is an ambitious multi-stage effort to study the moon and determine its origins. If you’re wondering when it goes live, why, it already has. GRAIL launched on its moon mission at Cape Canaveral on Thursday.

The satellites are scheduled to reach the moon’s orbit by the holiday’ ... Read more »

Last time Glonass was mentioned here at Geeky Gadgets–a full ten months ago–it was fairly terrible news. Alas, for launching stuff into space is risky business. Almost a year hence, however, and the Glonass tracking system is now live and available on your smartphone. But wait, before you amrvel at the precision of Russian satellite locators, here are a few important details.

Actually referring to Glonass as GPS is innacurate. You have your GPS and then there’s the Russian equivalent: Glonass. Like a lot of fancy tech from the former Soviet Union, it was originally intended as a military application. But don’t worry, Glonass won’t go Modern Warfare 2 on the world yet.

The really great news is the additional 22 Russian satellites orbiting the Earth are now feeding Qualcomm chipsets. This means that starting next year smartphones powered by Qualcomm ch ... Read more »
