Motion Gaming And Its Future

Where did we go wrong with; motion gaming. Gaming that transcends barriers and limitations by bringing the user one step closer to real 1 to 1 interactivity with their video game. Personally I agree that this idea and direction that video games have taken is a good idea; I just don't support the other half of the coin that accompanies it. That being companies pushing out lame game titles that use this technology in a lack luster way that feels outright gimmicky or just tacked on. It's travesties such as these that irk my soul so, as something with this much promise is squandered. Many hardcore gamers having been looking forward to the success of this technology since the days of the Nintendo's Power Glove, and Powerpad. Not that I expect everyone to know what I'm referring to but alas Goog...

Digicel Cable and Submarine Fiber Optic Acquisitions point to 4G LTE based Caribbean Streaming TV

Digicel has been a busy shopper since 2013. After recently acquiring a Cable TV license from TATT (Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad & Tobago) as reported in my article Digicel acquires Trinidad and Tobago Cable TV License as Caribbean Fiber Optic Network Expands, I though a quick review was quite appropriate. First the Cable TV purchases, which began as far back as November 2013: Caribbean Cable Holdings in Anguilla, Nevis and Montserrat on November 2013 SAT Telecommunications in Dominica on February 2014 WIV Cable in Turks & Caicos on April 2014 Telstar in Jamaica on July 2014 I actually wrote about the purchase of WIV Cable TV along with her sister company TCT, operators of the Broadband Cable service TCExpress in my article Digicel Turks and Caicos thinks...

Don’t cry over spilt Samsung Milk as Samsung Galaxy S5 and smartwatches disappoint

'Tis a lesson you should heed: Try, try, try again. If at first you don't succeed, Try, try, try again. Thomas H. Palme in ‘Teacher's Manual’ So here goes my rant against Samsung! Samsung had launched their Samsung Galaxy S5 along with the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Samsung Galaxy Gear Neo 2 smartwatch updates on Saturday February 22nd 2014 with much noise but little fanfare from fans.  Right now it’s looking like Samsung has either lost their innovation mojo or they really are coasting on empty here! A reason why it took all my courage to even write about this, as they’re barely trying this time to hide their lack of innovation. Interestingly, and as I’d expected, the wristwatches were of course the innovation here to a point, sporting a much improved battery life and other nice...

Editorial: Tech/Gadgets to watch in 2014

Steam Machine by Valve - Kemory Grubb For 2014, my prediction for gadget/technology of the year, will be the Steam Machine by Valve. The hardware specs, the controller, the operating system, the price, the content delivery platform and company behind it all. All these reasons are more than enough to justify my choice but i will single out the most important reason why i think it will succeed - the competition. Current-gen game consoles such as the Xbox One or the PS4 can't compete against a platform that uses regular PC hardware. Imagine swapping out the video card of a store bought game console with a store bought video card. That's a win. Are these the drones you are looking for? - Lindsworth Deer Skycam Jamaica Aerial and Video Photography business flourishes in Jamaica as I’d re...

The Realities of The Jamaican Job Market From a Tech Point Of View

Most young Jamaicans; university and college graduates, have become locked into the vicious failed cycle that is the Jamaican job market. There are very few options available with little prospects of creating your own job even if you develop a product that fills a niche and has attracted attention from potential customers. Why is this so? The answer is that in Jamaica there has developed a cycle of doom where you either conform with the norms of society or fail and leave the country to go make success somewhere else. For most, the latter is not possible and so many great innovators and entrepreneurs are forced to fall inline with a vicious system that robs them of their unique capacity of not only developing revolutionary products and services but also of their ability to make it big thems...
