Channel 5 Movie: William and Kate

William and Kate – The film, which follows the couple from their very first meeting at St Andrews University, through the trials and tribulations of their relationship, was made by Lifestyle in the US, and aired on Channel 5 on this side of the pond.

Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton Channel 5 Movie: William and Kate

At 1hour 45minutes once the inevitable ad breaks which come with made for TV movies are added in, the film feels long, and perhaps it would be more easily digested in an hour, as currently its cringe inducing style just feels like it outstays it’s welcome.

The film also takes some serious liberties with the truth for the sake of keeping the narrative going. There are certain scenes which just don’t come across as even vaguely believable, and are pushing the bounds of even what is acceptable in cheesy rom-com territory.

One particularly funny sequence sees the future king serenade his beloved in a karaoke bar to show her that he is sorry. As the film reaches it’s finale – the proposal in Kenya – the CGI backdrop is just shocking to look at, and it makes you wonder why they even bothered to show it, as the penultimate scene could have closed the film just as well, without bringing it down any further into the mire.

At just before 1.30pm William and Kate kissed for the first time in public on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. The fleeting embrace sent the already ecstatic crowds wild, and was repeated during a flypast.

As the couple left Westminster Abbey the crowds, some of whom had been camping for days for the moment, erupted into a fresh wave of cheers as they climbed into state landau carriages for the horse-drawn procession to Buckingham Palace. The married couple waved at crowds as they past the crowds via Parliament Square, Whitehall, Horse Guards and the Mall. Despite fears of thundery showers, threatening grey skies produced no rain.

After more than five minutes of waving to the crowds, the couple walked hand in hand back through the doors of the palace. Earlier, stepping on to the balcony, Kate appeared to gasp "Oh my" as the royal couple saw the thousands of well-wishers lining the Mall before being joined by members of their family.

The couple joined the Queen who is giving a lunchtime reception at Buckingham Palace for 650 guests, described by the palace as "a private gathering for guests drawn from the congregation who will represent the couple's official and private lives".

The Prince of Wales will give a private dinner, followed by dancing, for close friends and family.

Ovarian Cancer Symptoms and £20 Diagnostic Blood Test AwarenessAbout 7,000 women develop Ovarian Cancer every year and two thirds of those diagnosed with it, die within Five Years. However through research, experts claim a Simple Blood Test could save hundreds of lives.

Figures published in The Lancet show that about 82 per cent of British women with breast cancer survive to at least five years after Breast Cancer Diagnosis, but for Ovarian Cancer the figure is just 36 per cent due to Late Diagnosis.

Ovarian cancer is the fourth most common cancer in females and campaigners are urging GPs to offer women over 50 the Blood Test, which could spot Ovarian Cancer Symptoms at an earlier stage.

Dr. Fergus Macbeth, of Nice emphasises the importance of early diagnosis:
The outcomes for ovarian cancer are not as good as for other cancers in women. It’s symptoms are considered vague and so can be confused with other conditions. While the symptoms are non-specific, their persistence can be an important indicator of the disease.
The £20 blood test is already available on the NHS but offering it sooner could give women a greater chance of survival by speeding up Early Diagnosis and therefore treatment.

Charles Redman, a Consultant Gynaecologist Oncologist, says the length of time from a woman experiencing symptoms to being diagnosed is about 18 months: Far too many women are being referred to hospitals for suspected ovarian cancer once their disease is already at an advanced stage.

Frances Reid, from Target Ovarian Cancer says:
Poor early diagnosis in Britain is strongly linked to poor survival rates. Up to 500 women’s lives a year could be saved if only we matched the average survival rates in other European countries.
Older women are often misdiagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome when they are experiencing the early stages of Ovarian Cancer. Other symptoms include feeling full quickly and the need to urinate urgently. Here under are the Sign and Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer to look for:

Ovarian Cancer Symptoms and Signs

Ovarian cancer symptoms are not specific to the disease, and they often mimic those of many other more-common conditions, including digestive and bladder problems. When ovarian cancer symptoms are present, they tend to be persistent and worsen with time. Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:
  • Abdominal pressure, fullness, swelling or bloating
  • Pelvic discomfort or pain
  • Persistent indigestion, gas or nausea
  • Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation
  • Changes in bladder habits, including a frequent need to urinate
  • Loss of appetite or quickly feeling full
  • Increased abdominal girth or clothes fitting tighter around your waist
  • A persistent lack of energy
  • Low back pain
If you have signs and symptoms that worry you make an appointment with your doctor, especially if you have a family history of ovarian cancer or breast cancer. In some cases, your doctor may refer you to a genetic counselor to discuss testing for certain gene mutations that increase your risk of breast and ovarian cancers.

Bloggers and Tweeps are also bustling with theories on Anonymous' involvement in the PlayStation network outage.

On the other hand, Hacking group Anonymous, which attacked Sony's servers earlier this month, on their Facebook page, claims no involvement in recent outage.

Speculation is running high on the internet. Questions have emerged of something similar to the system updates that were recently made available for XBox 360 would be released. In January 2011, Microsoft sneaked a super secret feature into its recent, Boot-to-Disc-restoring mandatory Xbox 360 firmware update: the ability to stop Call of Duty: Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 pirates and hackers. In March 2011, Treyarch released the First Strike map pack DLC, which came to Xbox 360 at the beginning of February.

Nintendo has officially confirmed its next console Project Cafe, to be seen at E3 2011, all rumors.

Earlier some leaks by WarioWorld had revealed the existence of Project Cafe’. is Nintendo Software Development Support Group website for third party developers.

iTechWhiz has got new details about Nintendo upcoming successor Wii 2 Console, codenamed Project Café or alternate name Stream whose system specification look pretty heavy.

The Wii 2 will have the power to be able to output high-definition video–1080P content–but it is still not expected to have a physical way to read HD content like Blu-ray discs. The 1080P compatibility will be partially thanks to the custom-built tri-core IBM PowerPC chipset that will serve as the Wii 2 core processor.

It look somewhat similar sort of setup as of Microsoft Xbox 360 console. Only, Nintendo will allegedly up the clock speeds to beat out the three 64-bit, 3.2-Ghz cores of Microsoft's competing device, among other enhancements.

Nintendo is not expected to switch up to AMD's fusion platform. An AMD GPU will still power the graphics for the device, but it will come from a enforced version of the R700 architecture.

Like its console peers, Nintendo might mix a few features from AMD successor platform into the mix as well—R800. The GPU should be able to tap into 512MB memory, which should not be confused with the undisclosed amount of physical RAM that the console itself will have.

In total, the specs should be enough to put the Wii 2 in direct graphical competition with the Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3. That will be a welcome relief to bring Nintendo platform bring well in competition with Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. Nintendo Console Project Cafe still without high-definition support in the form of a Physical HD-DVD or Blu-Ray Reader, and that's not expected to change for the Wii 2.

Nintendo release of its Wii 2–currently pegged for April of 2012 comes at a critical juncture for the company. Its Wii console leads the U.S. console market in sales (34.5 million units sold as of April 2011), and Nintendo's rumored 2012 launch of the Wii 2 will give the company at least two years or so of exclusivity before new offerings from Microsoft or Sony pop onto shelves. Let see, will that be enough for Nintendo to cement its new console as a comparable offering!

The Retail Price of the Nintendo Wii 2 is currently expected to float around $350 to $400, based on the costs of the console parts.

Valve Args 'Portal 2' Release Review for PC, Mac, xBox, PS 3 and SteamPortal 2 and Mortal Kombat are going to hit the gaming world combat this month like Gears of War 3 Beta and Call of Duty Black Ops Escalation DLC.

However Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat might just be one of the coolest contrast. Portal 2 was announced in March 5, 2010, as a highly anticipating sequel to critically acclaimed video game Portal which was released in 2007. Portal 2 is a hilariously mind-bending adventure that challenges you to use wits over weaponry in a fun house of diabolical science.

It has also been revealed that Portal 2 features on the cover of the April issue of Game Informer magazine.

Developed by Valve Corporation and distributed by Electronic Arts, Portal 2 is an coming first-person action/puzzle video game. The game will be released through both Retail and Steam, for all popular platforms like Microsoft Windows PC, Mac OS X, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 simultaneously.

Portal 2 Overall Steam Gameplay Experience

In Portal 2 the player returns as Chell, having been in stasis for several hundred years while GLaDOS and the rest of the Aperture Science facility has fallen into disrepair. Chell is awakened by one of GLaDOS's personality cores, and inadvertently wakes GLaDOS; GLaDOS is immediately displeased at Chell's return and begins testing her again through numerous chambers as she rebuilds the dilapidated facility. Portal 2 continues to challenge the player through numerous platforming and physics-based puzzles using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (ASHPD, also dubbed the "portal gun"), a device that can create a temporary wormhole between almost any two flat surfaces. Other gameplay elements are added to Portal 2 including tractor beams, laser redirection, and special paint-like gels.

Portal 2 Game Story Board

The story is another big bonus, even if it you often lose track during the course of your puzzle-solving. As for longevity, the single-player campaign will take most people 8-10 hours, although it may take longer if you take more time arriving at the solutions. Then there’s the co-op mode, which offers an entirely different – and equally satisfying – experience and adds even more appeal to the package. The pacing and unparalleled balance of the game is another big positive: the first four or five hours consists of intricate puzzles set within rooms, which range greatly in size but nevertheless remain enclosed. In the latter three or four hours, you’re typically in an outdoor environment where the goal is a little different; there are still puzzles, of course, but much of the challenge will lie in progressing. In other words, the “puzzle” might just be getting to a certain stairway or door, and it can be surprisingly tough.

Portal 2 Game Review

Portal 2 is an ingeniously designed game that rewards and satisfies. Whether you simply let it wash over you or sit back and think about it, Valve’s latest is a fantastic achievement of the highest order, and one well worth your time. Longevity may be an issue for certain people and the stark sterility of the environments may chafe the artistic mind, but the combination of endlessly clever puzzles and highly entertaining voice performances is more than enough to compensate. This is a gem.

If we look at the graphics, this is a meticulously created and ultimately clean presentation with unbelievable level design. There are virtually no common visual errors to speak of, and the crispness of both special effects and our surroundings is impressive. That being said, this engine is showing its age in some ways, as the futuristic, sci-fi sleekness borders on blandness. We just don’t have that richness of tone and color and so much of the game just feels…well, devoid of panache. That may be a bit harsh, though, and we have to remember that part of Valve’s goal is to provide the gamer with a lifeless, post-apocalyptic, atmosphere. And that, they do. Quite well, in fact.

The sound is better, and one of the major highlights thanks to supreme voice acting. The hilarious Stephen Merchant as the fast-talking Wheatley, the gruff and always recognizable J.K. Simmons, and the subtly insulting Ellen McLain (GLaDOS), are all excellent. They’re so good, in fact, that they become staples of the production, and you actually enjoy hearing their running commentary. It’s just so beautifully written and acted; it can’t help but be engaging. The soundtrack fits extremely well, too, as it’s a combination of faintly classical tracks mixed with refined electronic beats. If that doesn’t fit this production, nothing does. The effects take a back seat to everything else in the audio category, but that’s okay…this is a thinking man’s game, not a shooter.

First and foremost, Portal 2 is a puzzle game based around the concept of – if you couldn’t guess – portals. You have a portal gun and in order to progress and/or solve various puzzles, you must utilize this core concept: L1 fires an orange portal and R1 fires a blue one; obviously, you need two stationed in the environment in order for them to work. You walk, jump, or fall through one, and you will emerge from the other. This doesn’t sound complex and in fact, it isn’t. But what the developers do with this mechanic and how they implement other additions, such as switches, lasers, and different types of sci-fi goop (for bouncing, speed, and creating portals wherever you wish) is just amazing. At the start, you’ll go, “well, this is sort of cool,” and as time goes on, you’ll continually be blown away by the intricate design of these puzzles.

The control is great and that’s essential because there is some platforming involved. We still get that weightless, sliding-on-glass sensation that feels outdated, but we don’t need weight physics in this game. Besides, this type of control fits the style because it’s always uniform; it isn’t susceptible to any of the quirks that go along with more realistic movement physics. And if you’re looking for top-notch physics, just watch how that goop I talked about before interacts with the environment; it’s borderline perfect for our purposes. Perhaps best of all is the fact that Valve understood this game’s aim and remained faithful to it: we don't have to be great platforming artists, because much of the aerial stuff is done automatically.

Portal 2 is a memorable, challenging, beautifully designed sci-fi story. The developers walk the line between overly frustrating and underwhelming; most every puzzle will tax your problem-solving abilities, but none will cause you to throw your arms up in despair. They introduce awesome new mechanics and combine them in later puzzles, so you never feel blindsided or unprepared. The control is rock solid and smooth, the campaign is of an agreeable length, the co-op is a gimongous bonus, the audio and voice acting is some of the best you’ll ever hear, and the rewards are great. I still think some of the puzzles could be a little too obscure, especially in the second half, and I’m not the biggest fan of the plot.

There’s also the fact that, once solved, a puzzle is never so much fun again. Therefore, replay-ability takes an unavoidable hit. Still, this ranks right up there with the most accomplished and satisfying productions of this generation.

Google Offers Groupon like daily deals coupon deals service
Google launched its daily-deal coupon service "Google Offers" as a awaited response to competitor Groupon, after failed acquisition talk with Groupon last year, when the later rejected an offer of $6 billions. Google Offers beta has gone live with a sign-up for beta program in Portland, Oregon to bolster search engine giant's local advertising business.

On the landing page of the Offers site, you are greeted with this “Google Offers BETA is starting in Portland, Oregon. Get 50% off or more at places you’ll love.” You can then subscribe to the offers with your email. Google issued this statement about Offers:
Today we launched a marketing campaign inviting Portlanders to sign up for a test of Google Offers — to get great deals delivered right to their inboxes. Offers is part of an ongoing effort at Google to make new services that give consumers great deals while helping connect businesses with customers in new ways.

Groupon Daily-Deals Coupon Service

Groupon is a Chicago based company, launched in 2008. It has shown enormous growth, expanding to South Korea and the United Arab Emirates to hit a total of 45 countries, raising huge money from its investors. It has former Amazon executive as its chief financial officer and Starbucks Corp, CEO, Howard Schultz in its board of directors.

Google Offer Service and Subscription Details

The service is being rolled out Portland, OR (no surprise there), Oakland / East Bay, San Francisco as well as offering NYC Uptown, Midtown and Downtown editions. It’s not a whole lot different than any other offer/coupon/deal site in that there will be daily e-mails with discounts for 24 hour periods etc, etc. You can subscribe here if you happen to be in one of those areas. Here is Google Offers Official video advertising:

Google Offers is a new product to help potential customers and clientele find great deals in their area through a daily email. Google Offers looks and operates much like Groupon or LivingSocial. Users receive an e-mail with a local deal of the day. They then have the opportunity to buy that deal within a specific time limit (we assume 24 hours). Once enough people have made the purchase, the Google Offer is triggered and users get that all-too-familiar $10 for $20 deal for that Indian restaurant they’ve never tried.

Google Offers will be powered by Google Checkout. It also includes Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, Google Buzz and e-mail sharing options.

Google is actively reaching out to businesses now to get them on board with Offers. It even apparently has a writing team in place to craft the write-up for offers.
