Apple Update Means Palm Pre Can No Longer Sync With iTunes

bitkari Doubletwist? (841 comments)

You could always use DVD Jon's DoubleTwist to sync the Palm Pre.

It reads iTunes libraries (including those irritatingly hidden away on iPods/Phones) and syncs to lots of devices quite nicely.

It's not exactly full-featured enough yet to use as your main media player, but it's really useful for moving stuff between devices.

YouTube Coming To the PS3 and Wii

bitkari No Xbox Youtube = Microsoft's decision (87 comments)

Microsoft has a slightly different content policy on their machine.

They keep a very tight hold on what may live on their platform, and generally they try to "monetize" whatever goes on it.

No web browser, no youtube, no BBC iPlayer.

They have started to slowly embrace the concept user-created-content (and eventually free-as-in-beer content) through XNA, but the real ethos of Xbox is the ultimate walled-garden, money-tree entertainment device. Time will tell as to whether this is the best avenue for them to go down.

Videogames Doomed for a 'Comics-like Ghetto'?

bitkari Re:Not a chance (354 comments)

Sure, but you need games that are truly high quality in order for this comparison to be valid.

The real danger for gaming is that it becomes a tame world of simple parlour games and teenage fantasy fulfilment.

The "Shakespeare & Bach" games are few and far between right now, and I fear that they're likely to become even rarer in the increasingly risk-averse game industry.
