In the current run in the dominating tablet industry, it is really hard to keep up. I reckon HP has realized this fact pretty quickly.

BF3 To Feature Online Pass System

Looks like developers are getting more and more greedy with their games. Usually, developers get nothing from the sale of pre-used game copies.

Therefore EA introduced this system which blocks some of the features of the pre used game, for instance, the multiplayer feature.

NFC Hack For The iPhone 4

NFC is the newest way to pay for your stuff by allowing you to make transactions using your NFC equipped device. This feature is widely integrated in new Android devices but unfortunately, iPhone 4 doesn’t come pre-equipped with this technology.

Lack of a NFC chip hinders iPhone users from enjoying the blessings of near field communications and sometimes it becomes rather annoying for i-users when they see someone using an NFC equipped Android to make their payment (or so we assume). But as long as there is technology, there will always be those looking for ways to make the most out of it. Hopefully, making payments through your iPhone 4 are no more a problem.
