The three month free trial of Apple Music had come to an end for many, if, like me, you’re actually paying for the service now, there’s some new features that should be added to retain me as a paying customer.
It struck me because I’d always taken the term literally to refer to tangible products but these were all tech startups in dyer need of Product Managers to help to move them forward.
After speaking to a few reps from mind the Product, I realised that Product Management was right up my street. A little further investigation on their website and they define the role as a mashup of three important factors.
Reggie signs off the Keynote speech with another sneak peak at Nintendo Land.
Nintendo Land announced, it will launch with the release of the WiiU.
It amalgamates many Nintendo franchises into one package. It brings together 12 different attractions. 5 are playable today.
Luigi’s Ghost Mansion will allow one player to utilise a different role in the game as the ghost. The other four players are can’t see the ghost but will be warned by a rumble in their Wii controllers.
A few weeks ago I attended a course in Adobe Photoshop in an effort to achieve ACA accreditation. I was really looking forward to it because throughout 2011, I had already achieved accreditation from Google for AdWords and Hootsuite so to achieve a certificate from Adobe would rank highly along side them and display my breadth of knowledge for all things digital.
The course was great and although I’ve been using Photoshop for a number of years, there’s always some functions that I’ve never really understood and many intricacies that I may have taken for granted.
Netflix hit the UK market in January 2012 and I eagerly signed up for the free one month’s trial. I was a bit more in the know than the usual consumer because I’d been watching the online streaming market with much anticipation.
Being 28, I am the perfect age for being continually exploited by Hollywood. I grew up watching what I feel was the golden age for films with epic stories like Back to the Future and as these films aged, so did the multitude of formats that I could consume them on.
It was definitely a major buzz word during 2011 and I had always planned to ‘get round to it’ but as the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Day, well probably when the haze lifted a few days later, I decided that 2012 would be the year I revolutionise my approach to web design.
I’d been getting tired of the same designs, tweaked and re hashed but based on the simple fundamental design rules.
Your search box must be above the fold.
Your logo must be top left.
It was time for something new, and time to think outside the box.
I’ve been a huge Nintendo fan for years and have grown up surrounded by your major franchises, especially Zelda and Mario.
I supported you through the dark ages of the Gamecube and relentlessly defended you against the threats of the Playstation and XBox.
But then, last year, I went and did the unthinkable. I went to the dark side and bought an XBox 360. This was a huge decision, especially as I’m not only a Nintendo fan boy, but also part of the Cult of Mac.
After the purchase, I instantly felt guilty. I had betrayed the brand that I had grown up with. My Wii still adorned my living room next to the shiny new XBox, but with no major new releases, it sat and gathered dust.
Today will be remembered forever in the gaming community, what is sure to be one of the worlds most successful franchises released the latest iteration. Call Of Duty: Black Ops was released throughout the world and it is predicted to eclipse all previous records for sales.
I wasn’t at my local video game store for Call Of Duty, much the opposite, I was even trading in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare in the hope that the Wii was still a major player in the console wars.
I’d recently purchased an Xbox just to play FIFA 11 because I was sick of Nintendo being handed childish efforts in terms of graphics and gameplay. There is a large adult Wii ownership as well!So, alot rested in Goldeneye. Could this put the Wii back on the map, could we finally forgive Nintendo for giving up their Rare exclusivity deal over 10 years ago to Microsoft?The first thing that strikes you as you insert the disc is that, as can be expected, the graphics are no where near as sharp as it’s rivals. Nintendo will surely have to build in HD support for it’s next machine.
