Boxee Box Update Adds UI Tweaks, 3D Improvements

No comments:



Boxee has released a firmware update that brings UI tweaks and some updates for 3D.

In this update we also made some minor UI changes to address certain usability issues related to playback of local files (added more filter and sort options, quicker navigation in long lists based on A-Z, ability to mark movies as Watched/Unwatched).

Improvements and additions:
● Enabling user flavor selection (online/local files inclination) during first login and via Settings
● Added alphabetical scrollbar for local files
● Enhanced sorting options in browse screens (A-Z, Z-A, most popular, newest/oldest…)
● Add Genre filter support for local files
● Mark movies as watched/unwatched from the Action menu
● Added option for hourly scan of SMB/UPnP/USB sources
● Added SMB client defaults to Network Settings
● When watching side-by-side or over/under video, the subtitles and OSD would not be visible when wearing 3D glasses. The user now has the option, under Settings, to have the user interface properly displayed when watching 3D videos

Go to Settings>System>Update to manually check for and download the update.

High Quality Maps And Satellite Imagery

No comments:



Houdah Software has announced HoudahGeo 2.7, the premiere photo geocoding solution for the Mac. HoudahGeo is tightly integrated with iPhoto and Aperture Places. It offers a myriad of ways to geocode and publish photos. HoudahGeo may publish projects to EveryTrail.com, prepare them for viewing in Google Earth and upload photos to Flickr and Locr.

HoudahGeo allows for automatic geocoding from GPS track logs or from iPhone reference photos. A GPS device is however optional. HoudahGeo provides several options for manual geocoding. The most popular of which being the Map Geocoding panel: this allows for finding and selecting locations on a map.

HoudahGeo 2.7 upgrades the Map Inspector and Map Geocoding panels to high quality Bing maps and satellite imagery. The Map Inspector is used to check the locations currently assigned to photos. The Map Geocoding panel allows for picking locations and assigning those to photos. High quality maps are of essence to allow for finding locations with ease and precision.

HoudahGeo may write EXIF and XMP geotags to JPEG, RAW and XMP files. HoudahGeo features full integration with iPhoto'09 & Aperture 3. Upon geotagging photos with EXIF & XMP tags, HoudahGeo may notify iPhoto / Aperture that new metadata is available. This allows for the Places database to immediately refresh. (A bug in the current version of iPhoto currently mandates one extra step to be handled manually.)

Pricing and Availability:
HoudahSpot 2.7 is priced at $30 (USD) for a single-user license. It is a free upgrade for all registered HoudahGeo 1.x and 2.x customers.

Infinity Blade Makes $1.6 Million in 5 Days

No comments:



Epic Games has made at least $1.6 million in 5 days from their popular Infinity Blade game for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, according to TUAW.

Epic. GameIndustry (registration required) and AppModo looked at the Game Center data for Infinity Blade (our review) and found that 274,000 players had registered the game by the evening of December 12. At $5.99 a pop, that means that Infinity Blade earned at least 1.6 million dollars in five days.

Not all buyers register with Game Center so these numbers are likely higher.

Infinity Blade is the first mobile game powered by Epic’s cutting-edge Unreal Engine 3 technology. It features gorgeous visuals, adrenaline-fueled battles and advanced character progression in a fully 3D castle realm.

You can purchase Infinity Blade from the App Store for $5.99.
