Apple has brought us innovations beyond believe, enriching our everyday lives with their products and giving superb service. Their technology amazes, inspires and excites people all over the world. However, there’s still a majority of us who admire Apple, but are dedicated Windows users.

One of Apple’s unique features is their amazing interface with beautiful graphics. This has caused developers to take the best parts and transfer them over to Windows. 3RVX is a simple service which gives you volume display of Mac OS X on your Windows desktop.

Into its second year of retail , Heroes of Newerth has brought thousands of people joy for the past two years. Though S2 Games may have had their ups and downs, we can safely say that Heroes of Newerth has found success in this niche genre known as the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (or MOBA) genre.

One of three of the major names in the MOBA genre, Heroes of Newerth has advanced MOBA games by being one of the first games with these features. Read on if you’re curious to what these features are!

DLC is always a hot topic in the gaming industry, regardless of whether it’s about the hardcore or the casual crowd. DLC, downloadable content, is basically additional content for a game that you download after purchasing the game itself. This maybe an armor for your horse or a fresh new set of missions or maps.

As almost everything in the gaming industry, it’s quite polarizing. Some people, like me, simply can’t be bothered while others tend to get really, and understandably, aggravated by it. With the rising costs of a modern game and the volatility of the gaming masses, I can’t really blame the developers for trying to monetize their more popular franchises.

This week I’d like to know your overall gut feeling when it comes to DLC. Love it? Hate it? Or can’t you even be bothered? I’d love to hear from you!

So vote away and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!

Over the past ten years, the gaming industry has significantly evolved, rapidly growing to provide for the consumer market. As technology has become more advanced, the games we play have needed to progress with them. This has meant factors such as graphics and game play have changed the way they are presented.

Today, games bore me. I’ve found over the last few years that every single game seems to play exactly the same way. This has ultimately encouraged me to join the MMO world. But, that’s a different story. This story starts with a love of Harry Potter.

It’s been over two weeks now since Windows announced their new competitor in the tablet market. Surprisingly, I don’t think we’ll be hearing much more till the release date draws near. The hype over the Surface has slowly faded down but does the Surface actually have the potential to rival the highly sought iPad, come release day?

It’s true, the Surface is bringing something new to the table, features which Apple could have only dreamed of. However, I don’t feel that the iPad contingent is really going to get up and switch over to the alternative operating system. Apple’s “proud” supporters are more likely to stick with it till the end of time, continuing to purchase their high quality and advanced products. In my opinion, the Surface appeals to a different audience….

If you’re also an Android user, then you should definitely check out Android.AppStorm – maybe start by grabbing some great free apps!

There’s certainly no shortage of free Android apps, but a lot of these are really more like free demos: they’re ad-supported “lite” versions with accompanying paid apps, or they’re 30 day trials, or they require you to unlock extra features via in-app purchases or by paying for a monthly account.

That’s not a bad thing, of course; we shouldn’t expect all developers to give away the products of their hard work for free! But in this roundup, we’ll look exclusively at apps that don’t ask for a penny.

Head over to Android.AppStorm to read the post!

Last week was one of Microsoft’s biggest in recent years with the announcement of Microsoft Surface, more information about Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 as well as a ton more. The topic that stole the show was definitely Surface, Microsoft’s own first party tablet device.

As a lot of people have been harping on for a while now, Microsoft tends to do great when it handles both the software and hardware component of a device, like Apple. Case in point, the Xbox and the Zune, to a smaller extent.

This week I’d like to know your overall gut feeling when it comes to Surface. Are you in love? Hate it? Or can’t you even be bothered? I’d love to hear from you!

So vote away and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!
