Strategic Assault for the iPhone

12 11 2008

By Jonathan at 6:51 PM

sascreen1A new game by the name of Strategic Assault recently saw its iPhone debut. It may be the first real time strategy game published on the iPhone platform, but is it really all that great?

Strategic Assault has very similar feel to that of the Command & Conquer series. You can create a variety of little fighters like tanks, jeeps, and helicopters with which you capture resources.  As in most RTS games your ultimate goal is to hunt down the opposition with a squad of your finest men…or whatever troops you can afford anyways.

Those of you new to Strategic Assault may marvel over it, what with the four out of five star rating it holds, but it really is an antique. I first played Strategic Assault over five years ago on my Palm M100 which had a 16 MHz processor and 8MB of ram/storage. Read the rest of this entry »

When you are going from using smart phones that lasted a week to a phone that must be charged every night, it takes some getting use to. My previous Nokia Communicator would easily last an entire weekend of heavy use on a single charge. We here at The Tech Lunch have found three options to help ease your power issues.

Cheapest way to Share Files

5 11 2008

By Kris at 8:37 AMNC Computing

CEO Stephen Dukker who runs a California based company called NComputing announced that they’ve released a computer which will only consume 1 to 4watts of power compared to a normal computer which consumes around 500 to even a 1000 watts of power. But this method of computing isn’t so clean after you discover that you’ll need a normal computer too. You probably don’t understand this. Let me explain. So you have a computer in the basement filled with all your home movies, pictures, videos, etc. but you want those files to be available around your house let’s say upstairs.

The new MacBook and MacBook Pro

The new MacBook

The new MacBook from Apple. Look familiar...?

By Max at 3:39 PM

Well, they’re here. The new MacBook and the new MacBook Pro. Possibly the most anticipated release since the first iBook, these two machines are a step foward in many ways, but a step backwards in others. In my opinion Apple wasn’t aiming at upgrading the current Mac users with this new model. I think they were aiming at making PC users switch. Let’s face it, Apple hit a home run design wise with the MacBook Air Read the rest of this entry »
