Beyoncé looking good.

Sony PS4, Xbox 720 coming this year!

This is about to be one hell of a year in the gaming world. Both the xBox 360 AND PlayStation 3 successor will be shown in E3 2012 (rumor of course ). This year E3 will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 5th to 7th [source].

The interwebs are blowing up with places claiming that the next gen systems are no-doubt  going to be debuted  in this upcoming event in June.

It will mark the very first time in the show’s 17-year history that three fresh, rival console formats will be so directly comparable.

There seem to be many claims about Microsoft and Sony saying that they would release these two consoles around E3 time this year. “Microsoft unleashing their new console at the end of 2012, and Sony has said numerous times that they don’t wish to be last to market in the next generation.” But what if this is all nonsense. Perhaps too good to be true? Mhmm could be.

There are already blogs out there try to calculate the potential price of these systems. I would say it’s a bit early, and both Sony and Microsoft have obviously not commented on the price yet.

Besides a forbes.com tech contributor writes that according to videogame analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan Securities, this is simply not going to happen.

“I think there’s zero chance of a tease from Sony for PlayStation 4 and only a 20 percent chance from Microsoft that they’ll tease the next Xbox,” said Pachter. “Neither console is launching in 2013, so there’s no reason to tease them in 2012.”

I hope that this E3 something brilliant is released, though the odds seem very slim.

Google Plus gets a large portion of Googles overall traffic

According to alex.com [a website which gives stats like traffic about different websites] around 6.88% of Googles total traffic is coming from the subdomain plus.google.com. That’s insane! Considering Google.com gets over 200 total million views, around 13,600,000 of them are for Google Plus. So looks like Google plus is catching on! If you’re on G+ maybe give me a follow.

3888 Photos Captured Over One Year Condensed Into One Image

3888 Photos Captured Over One Year Condensed Into One Image Eirik Solheim has taken exactly 3888 pictures and then edited them into one image. This picture is pretty neat, and personally I can not tell if this image was taken in the same location [looks like a forest] or in a changing location. Images from january are on the left, and the end of the year on the right. And it is missing night time shots [my guess is the thin night bands wouldn’t look good].

Check out the large version by clicking on the image.

  • 1. Read one funny book per month, at least
