'Mirror's Edge' is a unique first-person game where you assume the role of Faith, a woman constantly on the run. The game offers a graphical style unlike anything seen before, where you must constantly scan your surroundings for items colored in red in order to progress seamlessly. 'Mirror's Edge' is scheduled to be available this year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Kevin Core is showing that his imagination as an amateur computer modder is matched by a natural sense of marketing. Last year he impressed many Cravers with his "Tumbler Batmobile PC," built from a remote-controlled toy purchased at Wal-Mart. Now, after waiting patiently for several months, he has put the creation up for sale on eBay--just days ahead of the much-publicized release of The Dark Knight.
In addition to the 2.8GHz AMD Sempron chip and other specs mentioned when it first went public, the Bat-PC has a "stealth" power switch and three orange LEDs … Read more

The idea that Microsoft's split loyalties between the PC and its console business isn't new now, nor was it new when we raised the issue a few months back. But we're not sure we've heard a Microsoft representative speak quite so frankly on the topic as in a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz.
In response to the question, "Which format is your priority in Europe," Microsoft's Peter Zetterberg says the following:
On a global scale, the Windows Vista business is as important as our Xbox 360 business. But in Germany, for example, we … Read more
Kohjinsha made a name for itself by offering one of the most affordable convertible tablet PCs in the market. Its most recent lines, the SC and SX series, now come equipped with the latest Atom processors.
The SC range is an upgrade from the older SH series, choosing portability over an integrated optical drive. The 7-inch screen has a 1,024 x 600 resolution, with the main changes being its 1.33GHz Atom chip and the addition of an ExpressCard/34 slot. The Japanese model comes with an integrated 1Seg TV tuner, which will likely be removed when it hits … Read more
It seems like every time we turn around, there's a new version of Asus' popular Eee PC Netbook. After the initial 7-inch Linux and Windows versions, we saw the 9-inch version, and now we've finally gotten our hands on the Eee PC 901, featuring Intel's new Atom processor. (Of course, now there's the 10-inch Eee PC 1000, as well).
As we previously pointed out, this system has a 1.6GHz Atom CPU from Intel, replacing the now-dated Celeron M. Compared with the previous Eee 900 model, you can see that this new version (in black) has … Read more
Over the years, CNET News.com senior writer Ina Fried has had around a dozen one-on-one interviews with Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates. She just returned from Redmond, Wash., with her latest (I won't say last, because you never know!) interview, and I sit down with her in Tuesday's edition of the Daily Debrief and talk about his imminent departure from the company.
As everyone has suspected, and as Ina reiterates, Gates will, despite his retirement, continue to play a part-time role at Microsoft, lending his expertise and vision where he sees fit. One particular pet project is the … Read more
Yes, this is only a concept, but what a concept it is. The "PC of the Swim Rings" would turn the most hapless landlubber into a water rat, creating a floating computer and media center.
Displayed at the Next-gen PC Design Competition, this aquatic marvel would include "a GPRS receiver, Bluetooth, finger-touch input, solar power-driven processor, water-cooling system, magnetic charging interface, and waterproof design." Hey, if you're going to dream, might as well go all the way.
And just to show that it isn't entirely frivolous, according to BornRich, the "amphibious PC" … Read more
