Here is another cool Google easter egg. Go to http://image.google.com and search for “Atari Breakout”. Instead of showing you pictures of Atari Breakout, you get to play Breakout, complete with retro sound.
It appears that Google created this easter egg to commemorate the 37th Anniversary Of Atari Breakout. Wow, this game has been 37 years already? I still remember I used Java to write this game when I was in Polytechnic. That was fun.
Not sure how long will this easter egg be available. Hope they keep it there forever.
Dell announced the Vostro 5460 recently and I have the opportunity to take a first look at this sleek and beautiful laptop.
My first impression is that the Dell Vostro 5460 is pretty thin and lightweight for a 14 inch laptop. The laptop is just 1.83cm thick and weighs 1.54kg. This is not the thinest and lightest in the market but pretty good for the price range. The Vostro 5460 has a full sized Chiclet keyboard and a multi-touch gesture touchpad. The 3-cell integrated Lithium Ion battery is able to provide up to 5 hours of battery life.
The Vostro 5460 comes with integrated stereo speakers and a dedicated subwoofer powered by HD audio with Waves MaxxAudio 4.0. Sound quality is ok but the tiny subwoofer lack punch. Well, that’s the case for most subwoofer in laptops anyway.
And I think the key selling point for the Dell Vostro 5460 has got to be the price point. Or should I say, cheap without looking cheap thanks to the beautiful brushed aluminum chassis. Pricing for the Vostro 5460 starts at $749. Comes in graphite silver or fire red colour.
The only thing I don’t like about the Dell Vostro 5460 is the lack of touchscreen. But let’s be honest here, I don’t expect to see a touchscreen at this kind of price point. If you have no issue with using Windows 8 without a touchscreen, then the Dell Vostro 5460 is worth considering.
The sequel to Plants vs. Zombies will be coming in July. PopCap originally announced that the sequel will be coming in Spring 2013.
No information about the gameplay yet. But I’m sure PopCap will tease us as we approaches the launch date.
Plants vs. Zombies made its debut in 2009 for Windows and MacOS, and iOS in 2010. The game was also released for Android, Windows Phone, Xbox, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3 and BlackBerry PlayBook. The game was named Apple’s iPhone game of the year in 2010.
