baby jonathan 640x301There are many ways of informing the whole world and the people you care about that you have a new baby. You could tweet it, post photos of your baby on social networks, send out cards, make phone calls, send text messages, and etc. Well it seems that more conventional methods wasn’t enough for Andreas Kleinke, a former training manager for the Apple Online Store team.

Instead what Kleinke did was take his love for Apple and his baby and mimicked the Apple website, except that instead of showcasing Apple products, Kleinke’s Apple website clone featured photos of his baby which he attempted to describe in the same way and style that Apple would have described their products.

It seems that controversy follows Dong Nguyen wherever he goes. Previously there were reports that Nguyen’s game, Flappy Bird, stole images from Nintendo’s games, although in all fairness Nintendo denied that they sent Nguyen legal notices. Now with Nguyen’s latest game, Swing Copters, the developers at Open Name claim the game is a ripoff of their own Bog Racer.

Interestingly enough Bog Racer was released in July but apparently during Google’s zeal at removing all clones/copycats of Swing Copters, Bog Racer was caught in the crossfire despite it being released first. Speaking to Pocket Gamer, the developers claim that Nguyen had “heavily borrowed” the ideas of Bog Racer to apply to Swing Copters.

coolest kickstarter 640x368Back in July we reported on a Kickstarter project called the Coolest. It’s basically a cooler that comes with a speaker, blender, and USB charger all built into the cooler itself, thus making it a perfect item to bring with you during the summer to the beach, the park, or simply in your backyard while you have a BBQ.

It’s a novel idea but apparently people love novel because the Coolest managed to raise enough money to become the third most funded Kickstarter project. However it seems that the Coolest has moved onto bigger things and can now claim to be the most funded Kickstarter project in history.

Pentax K S1 camera frontMost of the time, camera designs tend to be a little understated and usually sport a somewhat somber and boring black finish. Sometimes camera manufacturers jazz it up a bit by added leather accents and different colors, although admittedly Pentax takes the cake with their recently announced K-S1 DSLR camera.

As you can see in the image above, the K-S1 camera will come in a blue finish (it also comes in a black finish and other colors) and actually sports several glowing lights on its body. For starters there are LED lights embedded in the grip itself, and there also appears to be a glowing light around the shutter button, which we suppose makes sense.

Swatting, for those who might not have heard of it, is a term used to describe a dangerous “prank” where someone will call the cops and claim that there is an incident going on at another person’s house, after which law enforcement could call SWAT teams over to check it out and to diffuse the situation.

It is dangerous because people could potentially get hurt in the process, but unfortunately despite the police’s best efforts, it seems that swatting is still a relatively common occurrence in the gaming community. A recent incident took place and this time the gamers who were targeted managed to film it on their live feed on Twitch. Read full post →Counter-Strike Game Interrupted When SWAT Kicks Down the Door
