In a world where mobile gaming has radically changed over the past few years, there is intense pressure for “traditional” mobile gaming hardware vendors to attract, or retain gamers. Of course, competing platform -mainly smartphones- have a great advantage of having a killer-app, namely “voice”, that makes them nearly ubiquitous, which made them popular gaming platforms as a side-effect (you rarely buy a smartphone+subscription “to play”). Although touch gaming has an undeniable success by any metric (downloads, money…), the question for any dedicated gaming hardware is: is it good enough to get users to buy and carry another device?Ubergizmo.

Apple?s Find My iPhone tool is a pretty useful tool especially for those trying to track down a misplaced or even stolen iOS device. Well one 8-year boy by the name of Landon Crabtree did just that when his family?s house was broken in to and the burglars made off with his family?s iPad amongst other things, except that he might have gotten more than he bargained for.
Utilizing the Find My iPhone tool, not only did Landon Crabtree track his family?s iPad to a hotel where the thief had stashed his stolen goods, but the police that was sent to that location discovered a pile of stolen property from about 100 burglaries that amounted to about $350,000!

No word on when a finalized version of Android 4.0 will be available for Meizu MX or M9 users, but for now it looks like you guys will have to make do with the public beta.By Ubergizmo.

iOS gamers might be familiar with the indie game, Sword & Sworcery EP, and it seems that thanks to Indie Games Magazine, a reference to the game was found in Steam?s registry using the Marlamin tool, suggesting that we could be seeing the game make its way onto non-iOS devices in the near future. The tool has so far has been reportedly reliable when it comes to digging up information on Steam?s upcoming games ahead of their official announcements.
For those who are unfamiliar with the game, Sword & Sworcery EP is an RPG game that instead of blowing gamers away with beautiful graphics and effects, focuses on the storytelling aspect of the game instead with their use of pixel art and a soundtrack provided by Jim Guthrie. It?s a pretty interesting game although for those who are looking for character upgrades, powerful weapons, tons of monsters and a hack-and-slash experience, this game probably isn?t for you.By Ubergizmo.
