As we count down the
days hours for the expected announcement of the PS4 on February 20 2013, Sony has released these retrospective videos for the PSOne, PS2, PS3, PSP and Vita to celebrate the history of the PlayStation Franchise and it’s gaming dominance ever since it released the first PlayStation.
All of these PlayStation documentary videos are produced by Sony, so you know the legacy for the PS3 will somewhat be a little exaggerated (even though the PS3 is obviously Tech4idiots favorite console to date). But it still very interesting to relive the past consoles moment as we take a look at their retrospective videos.
MultiMAN ver 04.19.07 is now available available for download. Busy man Deank is back again with another update to his ever popular file manager with the Multiman 04.19.07 update. It’s just another minor update adding support for PSOne multi-disc games.

As gamers, Hard Drive space is something that we all eventually run out of. And given the limited capacities of the current PS3 models, getting an external Hard Drive for your PS3 seems like a very good idea.
PS3 storage capacities range from the tiny 12GB super slim model to the biggest one having 500GB of storage space. Even the 500GB PS3 gets filled up pretty fast, Game Data, Game Saves, DLC’s and other essential stuff you need for your PS3 games can eat up a lot of valuable storage space. And add to that if you also use your PS3 as a multimedia hub and you have tons of MP3′s and movies saved in your PS3. This is where a PS3 External hard Drive comes to the rescue.
Unfortunately, not all External Hard Drives available on the market are created equal. (For the PS3, atleast)
Real Racing 3, the Gran Turismo of the Playstation, or the Forza Motorsport of the Xbox, or what ever floats your boat, is expected to be released on February 28 this year. And this time around, Real Racing 3 is free.

Yes, you read that right, the games developer Firemonkeys has announced that their popular and visually impressive Racing game will be free, free-to-play. And on top of that, Real Racing 3 will also be released for Android and Kindle (via Amazon’s App Store) devices. Nice to know the developers are also showing some love for other platforms as well.
But as expected after going free, not all content would be unlocked at the beginning of the game, but rather players will be able to unlock all the content in time, or most probably during game progression (well see). However, players can skip this waiting time of trying to unlock cars and tracks by obtaining them through game progression by purchasing them with real cash as CNET reports.
I have purchased and enjoyed the first 2 real Racing games with my iOS devices, and getting the 3rd version of this game for free seems like a good deal to me. How about you? What do you think.
iOS 6.1.1 is now available for your Apple device, Apple has started pushing out the iOS 6.1.1 update for iPhone 4s users a while ago today. And availability for other iOS devices are also expected to be rolled out later.
This is just a very minor update intended to fix some issues regarding 3G coverage of some carriers in Europe. And since the update was rolled out to address a minor wireless connectivity issue, it is possible that the iOS 6.1.1 update is only for the iPhone 4s. Like how the iOS 5.1.1 update was only for the iPhone 5. You can update your iPhone 4s over the air or you can download the iOS 6.1.1 update here.
While it’s no secret that Steve Jobs was very serious when he publicized his intentions to go thermonuclear and spend every last bit of Apple’s resources against Android and Samsung and put them out of business. Apple’s current CEO, Tim Cook, is apparently not on the same page with Steve on this one.
According to reports posted on Reuters, unnamed sources close to Apple and has inside knowledge about the situation reports that Tim was really opposed to suing Samsung in the first place. And really sounds logical since Samsung is a very big Parts supplier for Apple products.

iTunes being the world’s most popular online store for music, movies, and TV, has set a record of having 25 billion songs sold. iTunes user named Phillip Lüpke from Germany was gifted by Apple with a €10,000 iTunes gift card for downloading 25 billionth song, the song “Monkey Drums” (a Goksel Vancin Remix) by Chase Buch, was the lucky 25 billionth song downloaded by Phillip.
According the the Cupertino based company, an average of over 15,000 songs are downloaded from iTunes every minute, and man that is a whole lot of songs! Even Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, have said that iTunes was so successful that downloads from the store was “on a scale we never imagined possible.”
iTunes was first launched back in January 9, 2001, and with help from the iPod, it has changed the way we download music, how we access it, and even helped launched careers, and ultimately, iTunes has changed the entire music industry for the better.
“In a lot of ways, iTunes has leveled the playing field for musicians. Whether you’re unsigned, indie, major, whatever—it’s the place most people go to buy digital music. iTunes doesn’t exclude any musicians simply because they’re not yet established or popular.” – Wesley Schultz, guitarist and lead vocalist of The Lumineers

In 2011, 65% of all American companies transitioned to the cloud. Two years later, that percentage has risen slightly, due in part to the debunking of the myth that the cloud is not safe to use. However, regardless of this common misconception being repeatedly discredited, many IT managers still harbor concerns that a shift to the cloud will not offer the security or privacy necessary in business networking systems.
With proper precautions and best practices, however, the cloud can be safe, even for large corporations or companies that have sensitive data. So as the remaining 35% of American business consider the switch to beneficial cloud use, consider these safe practices to keep the cloud an easy-to-use, secure and private place for enterprising business information.
