White iPad 2 Coming, Beating iPhone 4?

CNET Analysis: We had hoped that the White iPhone 4 would have been launched by now, but it seems as though the White iPad 2 could be coming first. If this were to happen, then it would be a total embarrassment for Apple. Having said that, they would be pretty stupid to release the other color option of the 4th-generation iPhone just months before a new model is due to hit the market. The reason why rumors have started up once again for the white version of the iPad 2 is due to the fact that 9 to 5 Mac has received images of a part for the new tablet. They say what we are all thinking, how come they can produce this in white and not the iPhone 4. This is a good question, but we do know that Apple has had an issue with how the flash reacts to the white on the latest iPhone. This is the best rumor that we have yet for a white iPad 2, and we are not even certain if this will be a color choice that we would want. However, when you consider just how popular Apple fans have wanted other pr…

India Vs England World Cup 2011 Match Fixed

شین وارن کے اس چہچہانا اکاؤنٹ پر لکھا تھا : 'بھارت اور انگلینڈ کے درمیان کھیل کو آج سے آگے تلاش (اتوار) کو ایک پٹاھا ہونا چاہئے. میری پیشن گوئی ٹائی! '
Breaking News England captain Andrew Strauss, who won the man of the match award for his brilliant 158 in Sunday's World Cup match against India, said Australian legendary leg spinner Shane Warne was a 'genius' to have said that the clash would end in a tie.
'I think Warne is a genius to have predicted that way (a tie). What more can I say,' a disappointed Strauss told reporters late Sunday, after the group B league match ended in a dramatic tie at the Chinnaswamy stadium in the heart of this technology hub.
Much before the match started, Warne wrote on his Twitter account: 'Looking forward to the game between India and England today (Sunday) should be a cracker. My prediction a tie!'
Soon after the match ended in a tie indeed, Warne tweeted again: 'Before u (you) think there was something untowar…

Guitar Hero & DJ Hero DLC: More Coming Thanks to Fans

CNET Games: The Guitar Hero franchise has developed and flourished greatly since the release of the original ‘Guitar Hero’, releasing titles which have expanded to drums, vocals and even DJ decks. Each series that has branched onto the current-gen consoles have all been bombarded with DLC to accompany the games’ already extensive tracklists. Guitar Hero developers have stated recently that they will continue to release the DLC for Guitar Hero and DJ Hero games in the future even though Activision recently suggested that 2011 would not be a year where they would be concentrating on music games, apparently this decision has come about due to ‘continued support’ from the fans. While this is good news for the fans of guitar hero titles, it seems like a wise move for the developers also. We recently posted about the new Nine Inch Nails track pack coming soon to Rock Band which will add to Rock Band’s already huge list of playable tracks. This continuation from Rock Band would have made th…

HTC Droid Incredible 2: Release on Verizon In 2011?

CNET Analysis: Earlier on, we mentioned that HTC were planning to bring the Windows Phone 7 powered HTC Trophy smartphone to Verizon at some point during the year, but now we have exciting details for all of you Droid Incredible fans out there. If you were watching the collection of handset reveals at Mobile World Congress, you were probably as disappointed as we were with the unveiling of the HTC Incredible S – a minor refresh to the popular Droid Incredible with pretty average hardware specs.

Nintendo 3DS: Hack with R4 Cards – Video Shows Proof

CNET Games: The Nintendo 3DS has only just launched in Japan over the weekend, but it already looks as if the glasses-free 3D handheld has been hacked, once again using the compact R4 cards which caused Nintendo so many problems with the DS. According to this report from Destructoid , a few videos showing the hacks have already made their way onto YouTube, one of which you can check out here if you’re interested. It’s worth pointing out, that this hack has only been used to play Nintendo DS games on the Nintendo 3DS, which means that the system hasn’t been unlocked to play 3DS games, yet. However, considering the speed that hackers have managed to get the R4 cards running on the system, we fear that it’s only a matter of time until the 3DS is hacked completely. What are your thoughts on this outcome? Are you surprised that hackers have gained control of the system so easily? Will the support of these R4 cards tempt you into a purchase more than before? As you can see from the video, …

HTC Thunderbolt: Poor Battery Life? – Consumer Concerns

CNET Analysis: As we briefly told you over the weekend , there has been a notable number of reports recently, which suggests that the reason the highly anticipated HTC Thunderbolt is yet to release, is due to a worrying problem involving poor battery life. We told you how HTC were working on a quick firmware update to solve this problem, but as a consumer who was planning to pick up the device, how do you feel about this? It is particularly worrying that the launch of such a prominent device has had to be delayed due to battery life concerns. HTC and Verizon are obviously keen to play down this problem as a ‘serious’ issue, but it is pretty serious when you think about it. What we want to know is, just how many of you take this matter seriously and how many of you are still prepared to take a possible ‘risk’ on the HTC Thunderbolt? Are you confident that HTC will fix up this problem 100% before launch, or has the battery life concerns installed a hint of doubt in your mind? If you we…
