floppycloudBoth NES and SNES emulators have come and gone on the App Store, where they are removed almost as quickly as they are put up by the ever watchful eyes of the App Store moderators. This means having to lie in wait patiently, and keeping one’s ears attuned to the buzz on the ground.

Perhaps this is due to the moderation team being off for their Christmas holidays, but it definitely is an opportune moment to release the app.

patentRockstar Consortium, an outfit that picked up the patent portfolio of bankrupt telecoms firm Nortel, has decided to sell of most of the technology involved to a company that touts itself to be a dedicated crusader of reducing patent litigation.

Well, while this world has not come up with its working version of a lightsaber just yet (which would be a very dangerous proposition, actually), this does not mean that lasers cannot offer a similar visual trick. Wicked Lasers, being famous for their high-powered products, has just come up with a concept for that very red crossguard lightsaber which has set the Internet alight – with both for and against arguments.

t-mobile logo 2It does look as though when it comes to the year 2014 among tech companies in the U.S., T-Mobile has experienced a far more remarkable year than the rest of the pack – at least this is what CNN reported.
