Booooly!

Booooly is a highly explosive puzzle game for the iPhone, the game looks super attractive under iPhone 4’s Rentina Display. Transcending the predictable match-three puzzle genre, Booooly challenges Players to make a match-four.

Players must strategically find ways to eliminate the largest number of the same colored balls while juggling, every few seconds, newly plummeting Booooly balls. An intuitive physics engine of weighted balls realistically determines how they roll, bounce and fall in place adding to Booooly’s dynamic gameplay. As the Player progresses, new missions and challenging bonuses with a mixture of new colors, bad booooly’s and bombs will relentlessly test the Player’s agility and ability to adjust their strategy.

Multiplayer features such as OpenFeint, Twitter/Facebook and Online Leader Boards provide a fantastic experience for Players to compete, score achievements and share their progress with friends and other Booooly enthusiasts to effectively deliver a simple yet highly addictive game!

Features:

• Eye-catching game design with animated colors and vivid smiley expressions • Intuitive physics engine of weighted Booooly’s balls test Player’s strategy

Apple make comparing Macs easier with their new HTML 5 Interface

Apple came out with a new HTML Interface that help you compare macs when you have problem buying your next Mac!

I’m sure lots of people have problem deciding on which Mac to buy, whether to buy Macbook Pro or iMac or should you buy Mac Mini instead since you already have a external LCD Monitor. Those are the common questions, but some users want to know how much electricity iMac uses, or how fast is iMac compare to Mac mini and Macbook Pro.

Apple have launch this Mac Compare Page, where you can compare up to 3 Macs side by Side, and you will be able to compare Hardware, Software, Technical Specification and even Environment Status Report.

How?

You might be interested how to get to this Compare Macs page? I’m surprise there is no direct link to Compare Macs main page of Apple Store, you have to select on any Macs, be it iMac or Macbook Pro. Then you will be able to see Compare Macs on the top bar of the site(as seen below)

So next time you want to buy Mac, try this function, it might help you decide which mac to buy faster and easier!


Apple New iPad Ad – iPad is…

Apple just launched their new Ad Campaign for iPad, “iPad is…” In the ad, they showed some of the key capability of iPad, like games, ibooks, cook book apps and so on, along with text describing like iPad is… Delicious, current, learning, playful, literary, artful, friendly, productive, scientific, and last but not the least magical!


Nokia N9 – Apple MacBook Pro lookalike?

Don’t tell me they don’t look similar! They almost look exactly the same, yes, Apple Macbook Pro and Nokia’s N9.  One of Nokia’s newest innovation is N9 running MeeGO, but if you take a look at the hardware it looks exactly like Macbook Pro.

I’m not sure if Apple can sue them on this, but anyone who saw the phone will feel that it is a “copy”!


7 Inch iPad coming by Christmas?

Lots of Rumors on 7 Inch iPad coming us by Christmas, IDG News translated a new Economics Daily News Report claiming that a new 7 inch iPad will be launched by Christmas this year!

The Economic Daily reports that Taiwanese companies have won a number of component contracts for the iPad 2. Chimei Innolux will supply 7-inch LCD screens, which use the same IPS (in-plane switching) technology found in the original iPad, which improves viewing angles and color on LCD screens. Touchscreen technology for the screens will come from Cando Corporation, the report says.

Honestly, the only 2 reason why I think 7 inch might be better than the original 9.7 inch that it will be lighter and less expensive. One issue on iPad is weight, many complains that holding an iPad for prolong period really is quite tiring… So a smaller screen might reduce it’s weight.

Price is another huge issue, with kindle dropping its price, Apple need to lower its price to fight for low end market, thus smaller screen might be reducing the price significantly as iPad’s Screen is still one of the most expensive component.
