Konami PES 2012 for PC, PS3, xBox Release Date and Demo

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 (PES 2012), also known as World Soccer: Winning Eleven 2012 in Asia is the eleventh edition in the Pro Evolution Soccer series developed and published by Konami.

Konami has announced the Japan, UK and European Release Date of PES 2012 for PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, PSP and iOS.

The game features Revamped AI, particualrly in defence, as well as a Teammate Control System that lets you move two players simultaneously.


Jon Murphy, PES Team Leader at Konami, provoking their direct competitor Electronic Art (EA), termed PES 2012 as "The Most Ambitious and Advanced Football Game Ever":
PES 2012 is a massive advance for the football genre, truly the most ambitious and advanced football game ever. The additions we have made in terms of Teammate Control, Active AI and Off the Ball Control and elevate the level of play to new heights. No other game allows users so much control over their team, and PES 2012 ensures that the days of gaps in defence and shouting at teammates to make a run are long gone.
Like previous versions of the game, it will be exclusively licensed by UEFA to contain the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup competitions along with a license from CONMEBOL to feature the Copa Santander Libertadores. Referees' governing UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup matches will wear the official UEFA Champions League uniforms, which is a first for the series.

Konami PES 2012 Gameplay Features

PES 2012's gameplay is primarily a refinement of PES 2011, with fewer big changes than the previous iteration but many smaller improvements and changes in areas such as artificial intelligence, speed, animation, and physics.

Among the new features is the Teammate Control system, where a secondary player may be controlled, either during play, or at a set piece or throw-in. This allows players to be placed precisely, make runs, and shake off markers before calling for the ball. Manual and assisted versions of the feature are available for varying degrees of difficulty and control.

Refereeing has been improved and includes a full implementation of the advantage rule, with the referee pulling back play for bookings after the ball goes out of play. The "catch-up bug", where defenders would catch dribbling attackers too easily, regardless of the attacker's pace, will be addressed. Gameplay is more fluid, with better response when controlling the ball, and goalkeepers have been improved with new animations and generally more reliable goalkeeping performances.

Artificial intelligence has been improved over previous PES games, for example AI players will play more thoughtfully when defending rather than simply applying pressure, and AI teammates will make more intelligent movement decisions.

Konami PES 2012 Demo for PC, PS3, xBox

There will be two demos, both of which will be available for the PlayStation3, Xbox 360 and PC. The first is based on a preview build of the game and was released on August 24, 2011 for PlayStation 3 and PC, though has been delayed on the Xbox 360 until September. Here you can Download PES 2012 Demo for PC and PS3. The 1.24GB Playable Demo Download is mirrored on GH and CGO.ro. The second demo will be based on the finished game and will be released in mid-September.


Konami PES 2012 Release Date for PC, PS3, xBox

On July 28, 2011, Konami confirmed that PES 2012 will be released for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows on October 14, 2011 in Europe and October 6, 2011 in Japan.

At Gamescom 2011 it was announced that the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 versions will follow on October 28, 2011 and the Nintendo Wii on November 4, 2011. The publisher has also confirmed that versions for Nintendo 3DS and iOS formats are also in development, with firm dates to follow.

Apple iPhone 7 Release Date is planned after Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 launch, coming out in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

Apple has consistently set the pace and trends in the Smartphone business and is sure to be even better with the release of iPhone 7G.


I hope some of you guys still remember the huge uproar created by the wonderful Apple iPhone 5 Info-graphic concluding all the Rumors and Possibilities in a single image, by D√ľne and Soso from French blog NoWhereElse, which later become very popular.
The info-graphic showed a number of changes that might happen to the next generation iPhone 5 and also gives a percentage of how likelihood of the feature to be available on the New iPhone 5.
All these rumors and creative info-graphics that make some sense, somehow play their role in sharing and shaping of user opinion and expectation about a certain technology. Which in turn influence that Technology Product Development itself, due to the fact that developed of the tech products draw their inspiration from community ideas. Technology products made in isolation without taking market flavors into consideration, are unlikely to be a commercial success.

Apple iPhone 7 Release Date, Features, Price and Rumors about Next Generation iPhone

Apple iPhone 7 Price

With advanced technology, new features, fast processor, and virtually unlimited storage (most probably coming through cloud), iPhone 7 prices are going to be slightly over the current worth of Apple iPhone 6, which is expected to $649 to $849 for iPhone 7.
Please keep in mind the difference of Price and Worth. Due to changes in currency value and other economic parameters, something worth 700 bucks today, could cost 800 bucks two years later.
However, we can’t make any exact guess on the prices but all we can say is that Apple is not known for raising prices drastically. Secondly, mounting global economic pressure and cut throat competition by Samsung and other Android Phones will keep the Apple well into boundaries.

But again, market is a day to day affair, affected by numerous factors. And with any single factor gone bad, (let say price of a manufacturing part) you can have all your price predictions/forecasts overturned ):

Well..! that all from us so far, we'll update you as soon as we get some thing new in the town, worth sharing. In the meanwhile.. Guys, let us know what you think about Apple iPhone 7?

Nokia 600, 700, 701 Symbian Belle Smartphones to take on Android

Nokia on Wednesday unveiled three mass-market smartphones, as the troubled handset maker struggles against top-end competitors and cheaper producers in a market it once ruled as the innovative technology bellwether.

The new models, based on the Symbian platform, include what the Finland-based company calls the world's smallest touch-screen smartphone and one with an exceptionally bright display.


The launch of the Nokia 600, 700 and 701 comes five months after Nokia introduced its first smartphones to run on the updated Symbian software, with new icons, enhancements and a faster browser. It said they were made with an "extensive use" of eco-friendly materials, have long battery life and include power saving features.

Nokia is being increasingly squeezed in the low end market by Asian manufacturers like ZTE and in the high end by the makers of smartphones like Apple Inc.'s iPhone and Research in Motion's Blackberry.

It is hoping to regain momentum with the Windows Phone 7 – to be launched later this year – after teaming up with Microsoft, whose Windows Phone operating system will become the main platform for Nokia cellphones.

Symbian technology, seen by some developers as clumsy and dated, was surpassed by Google's popular Android as the world's No. 1 smartphone software at the end of last year. But Nokia said it is not scrapping Symbian anytime soon. Ilari Nurmi, a Nokia Vice President, said
Symbian Belle and the three new handsets we are launching today show our commitment to continue delivering Symbian products. These will not be last products or updates we will deliver on Symbian.
The new models, which include NFC – or near-field communication – technology, enable the use of stereo Bluetooth headsets and speakers and content to be shared between devices.

Nokia said its 700 model, weighing 3.5 ounces (96 grams), is the "most compact touch monoblock smartphone in the world," with a 1Ghz processor, 3.2 inch screen and two gigabytes of inbuilt memory.

Nokia shares closed up 1 percent at euro4.15 ($5.99) on the Helsinki Stock Exchange.

Based in Espoo near Helsinki, Nokia employs 132,500 people worldwide. It claims 1.3 billion daily users of its devices, and has said it hopes the partnership with Microsoft will lead to capturing the next billion users to join the Internet in developing growth markets.

Apple iPhone 5, the world most popular smartphone, has got a a new 2012 Release Date leak after the launch off Samsung Galaxy S3, most advance Android based phone so far. Apple iPhone in almost every country of availability, is still most important smartphone in the world. Every year, when new versions of the device are launched, people around the globe line up to be the first to get their hands on it.

Alongwith 5th generation iPhone 5, Apple is planning to launch a new Apple iCloud iPhone too. iCloud iPhone is a Low-cost iCloud based iPhone, to compete in markets where the Apple iPhone, being too expensive, had low success rate.Apple new iPhone 5 2011 Release Date, Specs, Features, PicturesApple next generation iPhone 5 2012 Release Date, Price and Features are officially little known. But as the saying says, "Impression is powerful than reality", it is hard to see that the new iPhone 5 to be anything less than mind blowing. Since customer expectation from Apple 2012 iPhone 5 are getting higher day by day.


You can check back, our April 28th, 2012 roundup of Apple iPhone 5 Rumors and Possibilities. If you are tired of the rumors, but can not ignore the potential sightings of the iPhone 5, here is an Apple iPhone 5 Video roundup by CNET TV that covers it really well:


Though Apple is known to keep its cards closed to the chest, but the rumor mill has not been so silent. The speculations about the next iPhone began as soon as the iPhone 4 was released. However, it is important for everyone to keep a level head when assessing those reports.

With the skyrocketing expectations from Apple's 5th generation iPhone, lets parse the iPhone 5 wishlists, expectations, speculation, rumors and leaks data to find a realistic and probable picture:

Next Generation iPhone 5 2012 Features and Specs

iPhone 5 is expected to boast significant hardware and software upgrades, inevitable after Samsung Galaxy S3 harware advancements, the main competitor in the line. Reports have been cropping up, claiming Apple will be delivering several key improvements to the coming iPhone 5 device. However, some of those features make sense, others do not.

Instead of listing every possible update that has been talked about, the following features, enhancements or improvements are the ones that are most likely to be a part of the Apple next generation iPhone 5 2012 specifications:
  1. New Slim and Sleek Design
    The new iPhone 5 will deliver a new design, iPhone 5 may go back to its original design of the iPhone 3G and will have a curved back that will eliminate all the gripping problems faced with the iPhone 4. The iPhone 5 is expected to to be thinner, faster, and lighter similar to the upgrade for the iPad 2. The brushed metal back could replace the glass on the backside.
  2. Apple iOS 6 Operating System
    When Apple unveiled iOS 5 at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, the company said that it would be making its way to the iPhone 4 later this year. However, there is a good chance that the platform will also be made available on the iPhone 5 when that device launches this fall. An iPhone 5 with iOS 5 simply makes no sense. With iOS 5 beta 5 already in hand, the iOS 6 is expected to make some interesting features aviable at iPhone 5 like new Multitouch Gestures, Non-intrusive Notifications with a dedicated notification center, Deep Twitter Integration and lots more.
  3. Quard-Core Faster Processor
    The iPhone 4S is being trumped by competitors that feature quard-core processors. So for Apple its time to go quard-core. The iPhone 5 will come with A9 Quard-core processor to give a stiff competition for other Quard-core Android smartphones found in the market today.
  4. Larger 4+ Inches Screen Display
    Its almost a conses that Apple next iPhone version 5 will come with a bigger display. The top iPhone competitors have already outshined 3.5 inches iPhone display with 4.3 and 4.8 inches screens. Apple iPhone 5 will be the first iOS device with 4 inches larger display (if not the edge-to-edge option that is being rumored) to help itself compete more effectively against devices from Samsung, HTC, Motorola and others.
  5. Improved Graphical Capabilities
    Initially, simple mobile games were made available in App Store. But over time, games have become integral to the iPhone experience. In the iPhone 5, look for Apple to capitalize on that with improved graphical components that will help developers take their titles to a new level.
  6. Improved 8-Megapixel Camera
    Apple iPhone 4 has been criticized for its built-in rear-facing camera. With only 5-megapixels camera and not so great lens iPhone is far behind competitor devices. Apple as a company know to offer the best, can not let this point ignored. New iPhone 5 is undoubtedly expected to come with a vastly improved 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video playback, panoramic photo capture capability, improved dual-LED flash unit and a front facing 5 MP camera.
    Recently, Apple registered a patent referred as "Image Capture Device Having Tilt and/or Perspective Correction". The forthcoming iPhone cameras could use various sensors, including the accelerometer and gyroscope, in order to determine an image shoot. The sensors will instantly make up for positioning as well as range, permitting images to come out flawlessly.
  7. More RAM and Storage
    Digital media is becoming more important by the day. Thanks to improved broadband adoption, video content is becoming more important. Considering how important digital media has always been to Apple, expect the iPhone 5 to come with more storage. A 64GB version seems like a safe bet, but a 128GB option is also possible. More RAM, possibly 1GB, is also expected and will arrive with an improved A5 processor.
  8. Enhanced Signal Quality and Antenna Fix
    One of the complaints most consumers have with the iPhone 4 is that when it is held in a "death grip", it loses some signal quality. With the iPhone 5, expect Apple to fix that problem. Apple has always been a company that likes to address issues quickly. That shouldn’t be any different this time around.
  9. 4G Connectivity and LTE Support
    This might be the long shot of this group, but 4G connectivity and LTE support is possibly going to make its way to the Apple iPhone 5. Looking around the market, there are several devices that are now shipping with 4G because their makers realize that the future is in the ultra-high-speed option.
  10. Near-Field Communication
    Looking ahead, near-field communication seems to be a hot issue in the mobile marketplace. Google earlier this year unveiled a new Wallet service that will allow users to pay for products from their handsets. The company promises integration on more Android devices going forward. Although that market is still in its infancy, Apple would be smart to deliver a payment service of its own now before Google’s gets too far ahead. And Steve Jobs knows that.
The other features of iPhone 5 will most probably remain the same with minor tweaks.

Apple new iCloud iPhone 5 Release Date and Price

There has been much speculation over the possibility of Apple new Low-cost iCloud iPhone alongwith iPhone 5, to compete in markets where the Apple iPhone, being too expensive, had low success rate.

It seems that finally, Apple is set to launch iCloud iPhone this fall, alongwith the new Apple iPhone 5. Apple is planning to hold a special event to launch the new iPhones, and the sources agreed that the iCloud iPhone will be the big takeaway from the event:
The iPhone 5 will be a quality upgrade, but the star of the show will be the cheaper iCloud iPhone alternative. Apple wants to offer a lower priced iPhone while still maintaining their industry leading profit margins.
Apple is going to do this by using less on board Flash memory which are also falling in price. When looking at the iSuppli cost breakdown of the parts of the iPhone 4, the storage accounts for 15% of the cost to build the device, and that's true for the 3GS as well. Reducing 15% of the cost across millions of units is a substantial savings.

The iCloud model will be for users who will want to use the iCloud heavily for storage, and keep a lot less on the iPhone itself. This will also help Apple make iCloud a feature by itself and reason to use the entire Apple ecosystem. The iCloud iPhone will rely heavily on Apple’s new cloud based offering, and less on internal storage.

Genetics Research on DNA confirms Inherited Human Intelligence

A DNA based Genetics Research recently, confirms Inherited Human Intelligence, providing the first direct biological evidence for a genetic contribution to people's intelligence. The research study was jointly conducted by University of Manchester scientists, working with colleagues in Edinburgh and Australia.

The Importance of this Genetics Research about Inherited Human Intelligence

Previous studies on twins and adopted people suggested that there is a Substantial Genetic Contribution to Human Intelligence and thinking skills. But this new study, published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry is the first to find a genetic contribution by Testing Human DNA for Genetic Variations.

The team studied two types of intelligence in more than 3500 people from Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Newcastle and Manchester. The Research team, led by Dr. Neil Pendleton, found that 40% to 50% of people's differences in these cognitive abilities could be traced to genetic differences.

The study examined more than half a million genetic markers on every person in the study. The new findings were made possible using a new type of analysis invented by Prof. Peter Visscher in Brisbane. As well as the findings in people from Scotland and England, the team checked their results in a separate group of people from Norway.

Dr. Pendleton, who led the Manchester team in the Centre for Integrated Genomic Research, explained his work:
This is the first reported research to examine the intelligence of healthy older adults and, using a comprehensive genetic survey, we were able to show a substantial genetic contribution in our ability to think.

The study confirms the earlier findings of the research in twins. However, that research could not show which genes were or were not contributing to cognitive ability. Our work demonstrates that the number of individual genes involved in intelligence is large, which is similar to other human traits, such as height.

We can now use the findings to better understand how these genes interact with each other and the environment, which has an equally significant contribution. With our collaborators, we will take this work forward to find the biological mechanisms that could maintain our intellectual abilities and well being in late life.
The study, in collaboration with Professor Ian Deary at the University of Edinburgh, was funded in Manchester by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.

White iPhone 4 vs Black iPhone 4 Comparison: Similarities and DifferencesApple iPhone 5 Release Date is about to be announced, but a lot of Apple iPhone user are still happy with their Apple iPhone 4 phones. Its not bad if we provide a summery White iPhone 4 vs Black iPhone 4 Comparison, their Similarities and Differences for some of you who are still interested in Apple iPhone 4. These images shows the comparison between both versions of the iPhone 4.

Originally slated for release in June 2010, the white version of Apple iPhone 4 fell prey to delay after delay, and it was not able to hit the sales stores until late April 2011. Apple never released an official statement specifying what took it so long to release White iPhone 4, but there is not any shortage of rumors and speculations on this account too, as with almost any matter where Apple is involved.

White iPhone 4 vs Black iPhone 4 Comparison: Similarities and Differences

Before we go into these pictures, please keep in mind that the latest White iPhone 4 features an extended proximity sensor above the receiver of the front panel rather than the little hole of Black iPhone 4 version. Whereas other minor changes include black interior coating of 30-pin connector as well as 3.5mm audio jack. Other than that, there is no significant difference in Features, Specs and Price when we talk about White iPhone 4 vs Black iPhone 4, with color being the most prominent and significant difference.

White iPhone 4 vs Black iPhone 4 Comparison in Camera Module Results

There is a plenty of debate on the White iPhone 4 vs Black iPhone 4 Camera Results. Starting with an early tear-down of the white iPhone 4, as soon as it White iPhone 4 was released, a Japanese blog revealed that the camera module in it was noticeably different from the one found in the black iPhone 4. The camera lens in the White iPhone 4 version, looked to be a bit more recessed, possibly to reduce the distance between the glass and the sensor and eliminate or reduce the light leakage issue. For serious photography guys these tweaks in the camera module means a lot of difference in the image results, for others like me, its just the same or almost same to be on safe side ):

So guys, I guess its good to cut the long story short and directly jump into watching this pictorial White iPhone 4 vs Black iPhone 4 Comparisons:

Bug Bounty Program de Facebook: Earn $500 for every Facebook Bugs Report

Facebook is offering $500 reward for reporting bugs on its site. Although $500 Bug Bounty is very less when compared Microsoft, Google and Mozilla that offers around $3000 Bug Bounty. But money is not the only thing one makes. Reporting Facebook bugs can help a security researcher or software testers make name and fame in the software security world, with potential to earn much more than just bounty.

As HD Moore, the Chief Security Officer at Rapid7 said:
The dollar amounts may be smaller than other markets for security research, but bounty programs lead to a better relationship with the security community and improve the security of the service much faster than a similar resource spend in a traditional security audit.

How to Participate in Facebook Bug Bounty Program:

Facebook launched a new Whitehat Hacking Portal where one can register for the bug bounty program and report bugs. Facebook has also published a acknowledgement list of 42 researchers who have made 'responsible disclosures' in the past, alongwith the current annoucement:
To show our appreciation for our security researchers, we offer a monetary bounty for certain qualifying security bugs.
Facebook Bug Bounty program is for security related bugs and cross site scripting flaws. To qualify for the bounty:
  • You must be the first to report the security glitch.
  • The bug must be native to Facebook (not in third party application e.g Farmville).
  • Disclosures must be "responsible" and you need to give Facebook a reasonable amount of time before reporting the bug publicly.
In 2010, Google has reportedly paid a total estimate of $10000 rewards for its Google Chrome 12 bugs to software developers, testers, researchers who helped to find vulnerabilities in the new Internet Browser Sofwatre. Mozilla too has paid $3000 in hard cash plus a free Mozilla T-shirt under its bug bounty program.

Bug Bounty programs vs In-house Software Security Testing

Facebook, like Microsoft and Google, has been known to hire grey hat hackers in the past. Most recently Facebook has hired George "Geohot" Hotz, the infamous hacker linked with Sony Playstation 3 hacking.

However, an open public challenge Bug Bounty program is not a new concept in the Software world. It not only helps companies offering Sofware as Service (SoS) making their product secure and solid but also proved to be way cheaper than establishing a broad IT infrastructure and hiring an in-house team of security specialist software testers.

PS Vita Release: Sony Playstation Vita Release Date, Price and Games
Sony has finally announced Sony Playstation Vita Release, the successor for the Sony PSP. PS Vita, the new portable gaming device from Sony is designed to provide users with a whole new level of gaming experience along with some great connectivity features to stay connected on your social network.

Sony, at E3 2011 had announced the much awaited Sony PS Vita Release, revealing the Sony PlayStation Vita (codename NGP) Features, Specs, Price and Release Date.

The new multi-touch screen and a rear multi-touch pad will be a great addition, helping with the users game handling capabilities. The WiFi and 3G connectivity features also allows gamers to connect, share and play with all their friends on the go. With the microphone feature, users can actually communicate on real time, providing an ultimate gaming experience. Sony also introduces a new feature called ‘LiveArea’, where users can access all the latest information of their favorite games on the PlayStation Network.

Still, the announcement will bring disappointment to many gamers, who were expecting Sony Playstation Vita Release earlier in US and Europe for holiday sales, with an OLED touchscreen up front and a clever touchpad controller surface on the rear. Since the new PS Vita was spotted passing through the FCC, a day ago, speculating a PS Vita Release this fall in US.

PS Vita Release: Sony Playstation Vita Release Date

Sony PlayStation Vita, the new portable game console will go on sale in early 2012. PS Vita Release is set in early 2012 for U.S. and Europe, following a Sony Playstation Vita Release in Japan during this Christmas by the end of 2011.

Sony Vice President, Kazuo Hirai termed it a 'phased global rollout' in 2012 rather than a delay. He said the scheduling was intended to give Sony time to prepare 'solid' game offerings.

PS Vita Release: Sony Playstation Price

Despite of recent price cuts for Nintendo 3DS, a popular competitor handheld game console released earlier this year, the PS Vita will cost $249 in the US for the WiFi-only model, and $299 for the 3G-equipped version. In Japan it will start from 24,980 yen. For more details on the hardware and software of the Vita here.

Google Voice, and VoIP Voice Phone service by Google, finally went international in 38 countries. After years of free calls service in US and Canada, now people outside of US can enjoy this.

The Google Voice Phone work through, Google Voice Number, an amazing portability service which lets you connect and receive calls via a single Gmail voice number.


Starting today, if you use Gmail you might see an Call button under the chat list on the left side in your gmail. Try logging in and check if you see it enabled. You probably would still need the Google Voice Plugin to be installed on your computer.


Although Gmail Voice calls are extended its not very clear whether the Google Voice service and one number portability is available outside of USA. You can try if you actually get an access to it. From the Google Voice blog post, it seems its only a gmail voice calling feature and doesn't actually give you access to Google Voice features.

Google Voice Phone Call Charges

Google Voice Phone is not a free international calling service as you still have to pay charge per minute. Google has lowered the calling rates to over 150 destinations around the world. For example, it’s now only $0.10 (or €0.08) per minute to call mobile phones in the U.K., France or Germany (landlines are $0.02/min), $0.15/minute to call mobile phones in Mexico and $0.02/min to call any phone number in China and India.
Please note that if you live in US or canada, you can continue to call US and Canada for free but people outside of USA, will not be able to call free to these countries. All calls originated from outside of US, will be charged at 1 cent per minute to US & Canada.
Google voice has certainly gone international but we are surely looking for those awesome Google Voice Phone features to invade the world. Till then, Lets make calls via Gmail Voice.
