However, it cannot be helped, as sometimes that is just the case as it is. Microsoft issued an official statement touting that Windows 8 users will be on the receiving end of critical security updates for […]

This new update will not change the functionality at all beyond simply including support […]

11/11/2011, Let us have a minute’s silence with word that Adobe has released their final version of the Flash Player for the range of Android devices and the BlackBerry PlayBook, although the company did pencil in a promise for future updates. I guess things will stop at version 11.1 – perhaps it has something to do with today’s date or a mere coincidence, I am not quite sure. Still, this final […]
11/10/2011, “Mass genocide!” screams Flash, as Adobe wields their sword once again to lop off Flash for TV – a day after we received news that Adobe is throwing in the towel for the Flash standard on mobile platforms.

07/13/2011, We do know that Sony has a couple of tablet devices which are being prepared to rock our world – namely the S1 and S2.
