We couldn’t post yesterday, but that doesn’t mean we won’t give you the news.
-YouTube is reporting a 400% increase in mobile uploads to it’s servers since the launch of the iPhone 3GS.
-Windows 7 pricing has been announced (heres what Engadget said:)
“Microsoft just laid out the Windows 7 pricing grid for us, and here’s the big takeaway: Vista and XP users will need to pony up $119.99, $199.99, or $219.99 on October 22 to score their Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate upgrade, and those of you who want a full retail disc will need to roll up with $199.99, $299.99, or $319.99 respectively. It’s not quite that simple, though: starting tomorrow, June 26, you’ll be able to pre-order upgrades at much cheaper prices — $49.99 for Home Premium and $99.99 for Professional, just as we’d heard — but pre-orders will be strictly limited in number and are expected to sell out quickly. Obviously we’d prefer it if final pricing was $49 and $99 for everyone, but it’s not a bad start, especially since participating manufacturers will be offering cheap / free upgrades to 7 on new computers sold after tomorrow with Vista as well.”
–Apple’s “Remote” application for the iPhone which allows you to control your iTunes library or Apple TV from your iPhone received and update to allow users to control Apple TV completely with touch gestures (like swiping). You can even control the menus, and not just the media. Apple TV requires the new 2.4 update, which has no major fixes except for the touch gesture support from “Remote”.
-“Mass Effect: Galaxy” is now available for iPhone users. Here’s what Ars Technica had to say:
“It always seems like this is used as a cop-out for reviews, but I think it fits here: if you’re a fan of Mass Effect, have played the first game, and you’re counting down the days until the second one is released, you’re going to get a good amount of value out of the game. In fact, by playing the game to completion you unlock something—we’re not sure what, yet—that you’ll be able to use in Mass Effect 2. Everyone else may be put off by the game’s slower pace and sometimes plodding dialogue. The official iTunes page calls the game a “story-telling adventure,” if that gives you any idea.”
