E3 has stolen the spotlight.
Well, not stolen, per se: it’s E3. The Entertainment Electronic Expo, the biggest trade fair in the video game industry, has been a showstopper past compare for so many years that it’s actually been difficult dragging our eyes off the latest Lara Croft game to focus on the “mundane”, like Google buying another company or Spiralation launching again.
Nevertheless, here’s our week in IT, recapped.
The prize pool for a video game tournament – Dota 2 – reached over a whopping $ 9 million, taking a massive step towards cementing eSport’s legitimacy.
Spiralation, ICTA’s tech startup incubation program, is once again live and accepting new submissions for 2014. You can get the application forms from www.spiralation.com (the deadline for applications is the 4th July 2014).
Dispel thoughts of CRTs from your mind: as you can see in the video below, they’re quite new.
While all eyes have been focused on E3, Google’s been busy: the Internet giant is acquiring Skybox Imaging for $500 million.
After three sleepless nights, E3 wrapped-up on June 12th. We had a glance of how the next-gen games look like and we were all impressed.
How much mayhem did this vulnerability cause in that brief time? Thankfully, nothing hardcore.
Sri Lankan operators Dialog Axiata and Mobitel will launch a beta trial of the GSMA Mobile Connect service that will allow consumers to conveniently, securely and consistently access a wide array of digital services by using their smartphones and feature phones as devices for authentication.
Very recently, the local mobile scene saw two major forays into the online music streaming market lately. The first one was Thaala, by MicroImage, which we covered on Readme sometime back.
The second one is Dialog Music by well.. Dialog.
