Grand Theft Auto V - Review

Rockstar promised a lot for their latest entry, so much that some people believe that would not be able to deliver. I was one of those who feared that Rockstar had promised too much but after spending hours, among hours, Rockstar promised and succeeded in an every way.
In the latest installment of the Grand Theft Auto series, you take the control of not one but three main characters that you would suspect to follow common stereotypes – a gangster, a high-class criminal and a fully-fledged psycho. However each character evolves into to something quite different than what I intentionally thought once their stories unravel. Michael, a 40-something year old retired bank robber who is going through a midlife crisis that his dysfunctional family doesn't help him through and just wants to go back to the life he used to have, a life of crime. Franklin, a young and ambitious up-and-comer who wants to leave his old “low-level crime life” behind him and is conflicted with which side of right…

Grand Theft Auto V: All Screenshots, artwork and all of the Trailers

I created a video montage of all the screenshots and artwork for Grand Theft Auto 5, but for some odd reason it would not playback when i embeded it into this post. So here is a link to the video. Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geuZACaspqA

Android 4.4 will be called 'KitKat' and 1 Billion Android Activations

Today, Google's Sundar Pichai, head of both Android and Chrome, revealed that the next version of Android, which will be version 4.4 and be called KitKat. Yes, the delicious chocolate treat will be the the name of the next version of Google's operating system. There were countless rumors that the next version of Android would be version 5.0 and be code-named Key Lime Pie.



The decision for Google to go by a different code name was after the realization that "very few people actually know the taste of a key lime pie," as said by John Lagerling, director of Android partnerships in a interview with the BBC. Late last year, an employee came up with naming the upcoming version KitKat, which is apparently a favourite snack among Android coders. And then Google decided to reach out to the folks at Nestle. Within 24 hours an agreement was made, though it's apparently "not a money-changing-hands kind of deal," according to Lagerling.
