One of the rather unique aspects of Blizzard?s action RPG, Diablo 3, is that it comes with a Real Money Auction House. In case you don?t play the game, it?s basically an auction house where players can buy/sell items to other players for real money. Unfortunately not everything in this world is perfect, and Diablo 3?s RMAH is one of them. One particular player by the name of Lowkeylai, sold an item on the RMAH for $186, or so he thought until he realized that the transaction did not actually go through.
Unfortunately not only did he not receive his money, but the item he was selling had disappeared as well. If you thought that this was a simple case of restoring a lost item, it does not appear to be the case. He contacted Blizzard and instead of having his item restored, he was told that the item could not be reinstated and was instead given an apology for the inconvenience caused. He has reportedly decided to report this case to the FBI and the Better Business Bureau, making him one out of many players who have already done so. So Diablo 3 players, has your RMAH experience been satisfactory so far? If you?d like to read the blow-by-blow account, head on over to the Blizzard forums for the details!By Ubergizmo.

Sometime last month, it was rumored that LG was conducting research of producing a 60? flexible OLED display. At the moment the largest flexible OLED display measures 7.4?, so as you can expect, 60? is a huge jump. As it turns out those rumors are true and this task was actually set about by the Korean government, which we expect is making LG feel very good about themselves since they were picked over their rival, Samsung who has been researching and working on flexible OLEDs for quite a while now. Assuming all goes to plan, LG expects to have these 60? flexible OLEDs ready by 2017, which can be used for commercial purposes such as displaying information in windows at bus stations, stores and other public places. However the underlying goal here is to generate exports and creating jobs by promoting next-gen technology as part of the country?s Future Flagship Program.By Ubergizmo.

There is a new project known as G.A.U.N.T.L.E.T. (Generally Accessible Universal Nomadic Tactile Low-power Electronic Typist) which is a fancy name for a DIY Wireless Typing Glove. Developed by a pair of former design students, this DIY glove is right now in its beta stages, and will basically enable anyone to type on any smartphone or computer with but a single hand, which makes us wonder at the possibilities of those who have only the use of just one hand to be able to use the computer in a more deft manner than ever before. Of course, able-bodied folk might be able to find a different use for their other hand while they are at it.
The DIY Wireless Typing Glove’s creator, Jiake Liu, is the co-founder of Kabob.it, a menu service for eateries. This glove is an experiment that he worked on back at college, where it had gone through a fair number of versions already. Electrically conductive embroidered letters are utilized to send signals over a Bluetooth connection, and there is the possibility that this project will see an improvement over time.By Ubergizmo.

Yes, we do know that AT&T has announced a pink colored version of the Nokia Lumia 900, but here we are with the Windows Phone powered smartphone that does not necessarily have to come in pink, although you will still be able to pick it up from AT&T for a relatively affordable $49.99 on a two-year contract from the mobile carrier. To date, the Nokia Lumia 900 has picked up its fair share of positive accolades from reviews and showfloors, where it comes in the iconic Nokia design, that is merged with the elegance, speed and utility of the Windows Phone operating system.
The four colors that you can choose from would include pure white, matte black, stunning cyan and the latest addition, pink. Just to refresh your memory, the Lumia 900 will also play nice with AT&T’s speedy LTE network, accompanied by a 4.3″ ClearBlack AMOLED display, and carries an 8-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. Out of curiosity, just which particular color would you settle for?By Ubergizmo. Related articles: AT&T announces Windows 7.5 Refresh update for Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia Lumia 900 update from AT&T,
It was just last week that Verizon would be offering the Samsung Galaxy S3 Developer Edition soon, and the day has finally arrived. The landing page of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Developer Edition is now available on Samsung’s website. Verizon is currently the only US carrier who sells the smartphone with a locked bootloader. Those who are big on the development of smartphone software as well as other tech enthusiasts will be pleased to know that this rather special version of the Galaxy S3 will be available alongside an unlocked bootloader for $599. No idea on its actual availability yet though, but you ought to be able to pick up the 32GB model which comes in blue sometime down the road. No idea on whether the 16GB or white colored version will be made available though, or even if the $599 price tag applies to the 32GB blue model.By Ubergizmo.

Yes, we have seen an image of the potential new iPhone 5 before, and there is word that the next generation iPhone that is now in production might just feature a design change. Some of the fresh reports which hail from Chinese sources tout that some of the design changes include the addition of glass to the unit’s “uni-body” backplate, where the “iPhone 5″ will come with a two-tone all-metal design, not to mention an inlaid glass that is located between the backplate’s top and bottom edges, so that would mean there is no bare aluminum surface at all.
This means it is different from the iPhone 4 and 4S that sports a “glass sandwich” design complete with tough Gorilla Glass front and back coverings, while the “iPhone 5″ will have a backplate that is only “partially covered” with the tough material. Could this be due to the rumored screen size that has been increased to a 4″ Retina Display with a 16:9 aspect ratio? All time will tell, that is for sure.By Ubergizmo.

Well, the Cowon X9 is said to upgrade itself from the Cowon X7 which was released last year, where it will feature built-in flash memory to get you started right out of the box without the need for a hard drive. After all, hard drives do come with moving parts inside, so if it were to go through bumps and knocks while traveling, there is always a chance of the hard drive needle crashing and causing all your data inside to go belly up. Bluetooth connectivity is not part of the deal, but you do get a microSD memory card, with up to 32GB of storage space, a relatively poor screen resolution of 480 × 272 pixels in this day and age with a 4.3″ screen size.
Other tactile buttons include Fast Forward, Rewind, and Skip, making the X9 a far superior portable media player compared to its predecessor, the X7, where that model came with a unified menu/play/pause and a pair of volume buttons. Cowon touts a battery life of up to 110 hours for audio and 13 hours for video, where a proprietary USB connector is also thrown into the mix. I would say the Cowon X9 does not have much of a future in this day and age.By Ubergizmo.
