This decade has seen China building amazing architectural infrastructures. For an example, if the documentary video right after the break isn’t too far off, I guess China is still holding the title of having built a longest arch bridge in the world. The bridge is known as Shanghai Lupu Arch Bridge. Check out the documentary video right after the break. Enjoy!!!
Saw this video on Gizmodo, and I could not resist the temptation of posting it on my blog. The video right after the break shows the coolness of flying F-16s from a cockpit point of view. Please enjoy!!!
I bet when you’re done watching Unreal Engine 4 “Infiltrator” Demo, your creative side might want to soak in the inspiration of making a video game. Unreal Engine 4 “Infiltrator” Demo is just a demo of what Unreal Engine 4 game editor is capable of. Basically, game developers can use the latest Unreal Engine game editor (i.e., Unreal Engine 4) to create similar games with artistic look such as the Unreal Engine 4 “Infiltrator” Demo. Of course, I think if game developers — who rely on Unreal Engine 4 — do have really good artists on team, they might be able to churn out games that have even better art feel than the Unreal Engine 4 “Infiltrator” Demo. Anyhow, if you are inspired to create a game right after you have seen Unreal Engine 4 “Infiltrator” Demo, you can totally download and install Unreal Development Kit onto your computer and make a game or two to scratch off that inspiration of yours. Unreal Development Kit is free to download and play around with, but if you want to create a game for real so you can commercialize it, then I think you have to pay a license fee and subject to other sorts of agreements between you and Epic Games (the owner of Unreal Engine and Unreal Development Kit). Oh, to be able to write code for Unreal Development Kit projects, you might need a good programming editor that can be configured to recognize Unreal Engine codes. I think ConTEXT editor will be a good choice for this very purpose. You can check out the Unreal Engine 4 “Infiltrator” Demo right after the break.
English: This icon, known as the “feed icon” or the “RSS icon”, was introduced in Mozilla Firefox in order to indicate a web feed was present on a particular web page that could be used in conjunction with the Live bookmarks function. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera and some other browsers have adopted the icon in order to promote a de facto standard. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Couple weeks back, Google announced that it will shut down Google Reader. This is a bad news for whoever that relies on Google Reader a lot. In my case, I do rely on Google Reader quite often as it is one of the best ways, if not the best way, to allow me to follow up day to day events around the world and here at home (USA). Especially, I do really rely on Google Reader to pull in technology RSS feeds. Unfortunately, just like everyone else, I was frantically looking around for a good alternative to Google Reader. Luckily, I found Feedly!
Before I found Feedly, I was looking at ManagingNews software which you could download for free and install onto a Linux server/machine. Unfortunately, at this point in time, ManagingNews 1.2, the latest version, relies on an older Drupal version which contains bugs that have not yet been patched; these bugs might lead to computer security issue in the long run. Of course, if one is to host ManagingNews for the Internet population, do expect to be hacked as ManagingNews has yet to be patched or updated with a more secure version. With ManagingNews outdated version, I now turn to Feedly for good.
Feedly is definitely easy to use and intuitive in terms of adding RSS sources (to allow the importation of RSS feeds) and removing them. Need more proof? Check out the video right after the break and you would see me messing around with Feedly, in joy. Enjoy!!!
Can Ubuntu 12.10 replace Windows 7? Obviously, we have Windows 8 now. Nonetheless, some people are still preferring Windows 7 over Windows 8. Ubuntu 12.10 is a good comparison to Windows 7, and so it might be a good alternative for Windows 7. I’ve found a great video on YouTube which goes through various popular Windows 7 tasks on Ubuntu 12.10, to see if Ubuntu 12.10 can replace Windows 7 or not. Enjoy!!!
