HTC has been taking the first part of its slogan pretty seriously of late ? by being quiet more than brilliant, but we’re pretty sure it will have something to amaze us in a few weeks time at MWC 2012. The Taiwanese company is rumored to have the device that might just steal the show. Called the HTC Endeavour, it is supposed to feature a 4.7″ display with 720p HD resolution, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, an 8-megapixel camera, and of course ? a quad-core Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA.
Sounds like a nice large phone that Android users might be looking for ? especially if they liked the HTC TITAN, but wished that it had better specs and ran on Android instead of Windows Phone. Definitely something to look forward to in the coming weeks, stay tuned.By Ubergizmo. Related articles: HTC to unveil 3 quad-core devices at MWC 2012?, HTC Primo specs rumored (updated),
If you’ve always wondered what World of Warcraft would look like if it was an 8-bit game, you don’t have to wonder anymore. A Minecraft player who goes by the name of “Rumsey” is attempting to create a replica of Azeroth (the World of Warcraft) in the correct scale in Minecraft. So far he’s managed to successfully recreate Kalimdor, one of the continents in the game. While it wasn’t done manually (he developed a program to help him do the job automatically) it isn’t any less impressive.
This is only the beginning as Rumsey plans to recreate everything in Minecraft, including all the continents and dungeons found in World of Warcraft. Talk about ambitious! When the world is completed, he plans to put it online so other people can come in the world and have fun as well. Let’s hope Blizzard won’t give him any trouble for doing so. Imagine if people quit World of Warcraft to immerse themselves in Minecraft World of Warcraft instead?

Another week, another site take down by Anonymous; and today, the group decided to pull off another huge hit. According to an announcement posted by the hacktivist group on Twitter it claims responsibility for hacking the website of the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States. Sure enough, at this time of writing the website for the CIA (cia.gov) isn’t responding ? hours after the attacks were reported.
The taking down of the CIA website is part of its ongoing F***FBIFriday campaign: a series of attacks by Anonymous against US law enforcement agencies and copyright holders, in retaliation for a raid on Megaupload. Previous targets have included the US Department of Homeland Security and the FBI. This latest attack goes to show that not even the websites of such agencies are safe from hackers who “do it for the lulz”. I wonder who’s next on their hit list?By Ubergizmo.

Last year in November, it was reported that Steam’s forums were hacked and a database of encrypted information might have been compromised. That was then, and earlier today, Steam’s Gabe Newell gave another announcement about the situation. Apparently the data that was possibly compromised is a backup of transactions that happened between 2004 and 2008. So for those of you who didn’t use Steam back then, you should be safe.
Regardless of whether you used Steam back then or not, it’s a good idea for all Steam users to just keep an eye out on their credit card activity and statements ? since Steam can’t confirm if anything was stolen, who knows what the hackers could have taken? Using Steam Guard wouldn’t be a bad idea either; keep your eyes peeled.By Ubergizmo.

Whether you’re a fan of Macs or not, there’s no doubt that Apple made a significant impact in the world of mobile computing when it released the MacBook Air. Premium, ultrathin notebooks that could perform well and last long longer than a couple of hours unplugged weren’t exactly common back then. The MacBook Air set the benchmark for what would become known as ultrabooks now. Well, if rumors prove to be true, Apple are about to do the same thing again with their new MacBook Pro notebooks.
According to AppleInsider’s sources, Apple plans to give their MacBook Pros a total overhaul with a MacBook Air treatment. The upcoming MacBook Pro notebooks are said to resemble the MacBook Air more than their current iterations. Apple is said to be revamping its 15″ lineup first and then its 17″ lineup shortly after. Can Apple create thinner and more powerful MacBook Pros while keeping them at the same price point as the current models? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. But if Apple does manage to pull it off, PC notebook manufacturers have got some serious competition on their hands.By Ubergizmo.

Starting from today, you can follow Ubergizmo as a ”publication” on Yahoo Livestand, a beautifully designed “digital living magazine” from Yahoo (it’s a free app). And we could not be happier with how things came out: the framework of Yahoo Livestand has allowed us to build a custom design exactly the way we envisioned it, and wherever we could not customize it, the generic layout and typography are great, so transition is seamless. Publications have a better user experience than Yahoo Livestand “topics”, which are closer to a plain RSS feed reader.
Yahoo Livestand is currently available only for iPad. If you want to download it, here is the Livestand AppStore link. If you want to learn more about this digital magazine, go to the Livestand home page.
