Microsoft to acquire Musiwave

The acquisition would bring together Musiwave's relationships with music labels, device makers, and mobile operators and Microsoft's Connected Entertainment technologies and services
In a bid to deliver mobile entertainment to consumers, Microsoft is planning to acquire 'Musiwave', a leading provider of mobile music entertainment services to operators and media companies.
The acquisition would bring together Musiwave's relationships with music labels, device makers, and mobile operators and Microsoft's Connected Entertainment technologies and services, including Windows Mobile, Zune, MSN, and Windows Live.
'Musiwave' offers software that allows mobile operators to deliver self-branded music applications to their subscribers, including full length song-over-the-air downloads, ring tones, ring-back tones, and customized play lists.
Microsoft believes that bringing 'Musiwave' on board will provide them an opportunity to explore new areas in the mobile space that were previously untapped, as well as showcase the power of software plus services.
This becomes even more important considering the pace at which the mobile music device market is growing today. According to technology research firm Ovum, by 2010, nearly 1,106 million mobile music phones will be shipped all over the world.
At present, Microsoft's technology runs on a variety of mobile platforms, and is featured on more than 140 mobile phones made by nearly 50 handset-makers.

"The Simpsons Game" Hits the stands

"The Simpsons Game" Hits the stands

Hi everyone,

A video game that parodies the video game industry -- based on a hit TV show that makes use of pop culture to make fun of pop culture! That's Electronic Arts' latest iteration, "The Simpsons Game" for you
The game finally hit the stands earlier this week, and is already winning huge applause for precisely nailing the humour and irreverent wit that is the trademark of 'The Simpsons' show.
"The Simpsons Game" is really that -- the Simpsons are living inside of a video game.

You find Bart chasing a giant ape through a video game factory. The same Bart changes himself into a 'Bartman' a la 'Batman'. Lisa can move objects with her 'Hand of Buddha'. At the same time, she manages to destroy an entire logging camp.

So there you have one of the very few games that manages to capture the very essence -- soul -- spirit of its franchise.

EA sources said one of the big challenges was to make the levels look and feel like TV episodes. The writers of the original TV show came up with some 8,000 lines of dialogue for this purpose. The game developers also chipped-in. They had to create 3D characters while maintaining their cartoony appeal.

As "The Simpsons Game" adds on to the existing catalogue of over 20 'Simpsons' titles, it hopes to build on two more milestones for the franchise: one, the 400th episode of the TV show, and two, the long-awaited movie adaptation.

Photobucket launcehes new tagging feature

Hello everyone,
Photobucket, the free media-sharing Web site for uploading and sharing, and linking and finding photos, videos, and graphics has introduced a new tagging feature for photos.
Photobucket is a unit of News Corp's Fox Interactive Media. The new tagging feature allows users to label a particular person or object within the uploaded file. Moreover, users can also link the file to other external sites for further reference.

Basically, tagging allows the authour to organise media files with the help of multiple words that describe them the best.

Before the introduction of this feature, Photobucket allowed users to search by headlines. So many a times, users looking for a monument called 'Hawa Mahal in Jaipur' would not find it because the photo was titled 'Hawa Mahal in Pink City'.

Jaipur is also known as the Pink City but the search mechanism would not recognise it as the photo was not tagged with the word.

Tagging will now allow users to add both Jaipur and Pink City to the photo. Similarly, users will also be able to add a tag to a particular person or object in the photo.

Moreover, if users insert a photo from Photobucket into some other site, the tags and the attached links will automatically follow there.

Before you buy your HDTV !!!

Making the leap to HDTV is a no brainer: Go to the superstore, settle on a size, pick a model with the best picture for the price, and pay the cashier. Piece of cake, right? Wrong. For lots of reasons. Like, how do you know if you’re getting the highest definition picture possible? Or whether that hi-def DVD player you’re thinking of buying as well will connect properly to your new HDTV?

Knowing the essential ins and outs of HDTV before you leave the house means you won’t be sorry after you bring home your big new purchase. Here are the top 10 things to know before you buy:

1. Genuine HDTV? A minimum of 1280 x 720 pixels — or little points of light — means you’re in genuine HDTV waters, while EDTVs (enhanced definition TV), offer lower resolutions. Make sure you go with true HDTV.

2. Slim is in. The popular plasma type HDTVs tout generally “truer blacks” when it comes to contrast, while LCD, which costs more per inch, is typically brighter. Huge, boxy, rear projection sets are cheap, but the viewing angle and brightness can be spotty.

3. My favorite movie. Test drive potential HDTV purchases with your own DVD. Colorful, fast-moving titles like "Pirates of the Caribbean" work best.

4. How hi is up? Cable channels that offer HD generally broadcast in 720p, which is great quality, while some transmit in 1080i, which is even higher, though many debate on whether it’s actually better.

5. Tune in or out? To grab free, local high-def network channels over the air with an antenna, make sure your HDTV has a built-in tuner.

6. Good connections. While most HDTVs have component (red, green and blue) video inputs to connect to your cable, satellite tuner and DVD player, double check to make sure.

7. Plugging in. Connect your gear together using the highest resolution connections possible. DVI/HDMI is highest, followed by component, S-Video, plain Video-in, and finally the lowliest of low-quality lows, old fashioned Coax.

8. Wide or Not. You can choose between showing bars on either side of a non-widescreen program so that the image looks correct, or you can zoom it to fill the screen.

9. Make Adjustments. HDTVs ship from the factory with the settings cranked up high in order to show off on the showroom floor.

10. Surrounded by Sound. Now that you’re feasting your eyes on a super hi-def picture, don’t forget the sound. HDTV boasts Cineplex-like surround sound – providing you have a receiver and speaker system to hear it.

Google Introduces Android - A Platform for mobile devices

Google Introduces Android - A Platform for mobile devices

Hello Everybody,
I know you must have heard the Word "Gphone".It came to us when Google broke the news that they will introduce a mobile device.Its coming but its not a mobile device.But something much bigger then that.It is called Android.Android is the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices. It includes an operating system, user-interface and applications -- all of the software to run a mobile phone, but without the proprietary obstacles that have hindered mobile innovation. We have developed Android in cooperation with the Open Handset Alliance, which consists of more than 30 technology and mobile leaders including Motorola, Qualcomm, HTC and T-Mobile. Through deep partnerships with carriers, device manufacturers, developers, and others, we hope to enable an open ecosystem for the mobile world by creating a standard, open mobile software platform. We think the result will ultimately be a better and faster pace for innovation that will give mobile customers unforeseen applications and capabilities.
