Silly person, all the cool apps are on iOS not Android.

US Says Plane Finder App Threatens Security

My Iron Lung Where is the Android app? (524 comments)

Speaking of Android, I'm having a difficult time finding this "Plane Finder AR" app for anything other than iPhone. There is another "Plane Finder" app that has a paltry 3/5 star rating in the app store, and seems to be just a Google Maps overlay of passing planes, not a Google Sky Map type "point your camera, display what's there" app. Anyone got a link to an .apk?

Rupert Murdoch Publishes North Korean Flash Games

My Iron Lung Play some North Korean flash games here (186 comments)

I run a bit of a North Korean news aggregation and info site. I posted a few weeks ago about a state-run newspaper site,, that hosts a number of North Korean made flash games you can play in your browser. Some of them are actually pretty fun! Links to the games, writeup and game descriptions can be found here: The best part is, none of the corporate web blocking apps out there are restricting a North Korean website! :)

The Problems With Video Game Voice Acting

My Iron Lung Re:Final Fantasy XIII (251 comments)

The Problems With Video Game Voice Acting

My Iron Lung Final Fantasy XIII (251 comments)

For a game that was out in Japan 3 months previously, I am astounded at the quality of the dubbing and voice acting of FFXIII. Even previous titles in the franchise had acting that made me wince (FFX most of all, the first in the franchise to attempt it). There's a heavy cost for this sort of quality, however, and if anyone has the money to throw at this kind of thing, it's Square-Enix on their flagship franchise.

Adobe Download Manager Installing Software Without Consent

My Iron Lung Re:Bonjour (98 comments)

Oh, Adobe is to blame for that crap! I wondered how it kept getting on my PC without any Apple software installed.

Google Chrome, the Google Browser

My Iron Lung Re:Very Interesting... (807 comments)

But maybe the user should be more aware of the address bar and its contents when visiting a page. For example, making note that they're on a secure page (https://) when performing an online financial transaction.

Microsoft Corp. landed in the Wikipedia doghouse Tuesday after it offered to pay a blogger to change technical articles on the community-produced Web encyclopedia site.
Microsoft acknowledged it had approached the writer and offered to pay him for the time it would take to correct what the company was sure were inaccuracies in Wikipedia articles on an open-source document standard and a rival format put forward by Microsoft.

The articles in question:"
