Sinestro Takes the Spotlight in Injustice: Year Two

If you’ve been following DC’s Injustice: Gods Among Us – Year Two series, you’ll know that writer Tom Taylor is building towards a major confrontation between Superman’s new world order and the Green Lantern Corps. Green Lantern uber-villain Sinestro is smack dab in the middle of that conflict, having recently thrown his lot in with Superman.

DC will be releasing the seventh digital chapter Injustice this Tuesday, April 1. This standalone story is written by Taylor and illustrated by Mike Miller, and it focuses squarely on Sinestro’s past and his role in the current conflict. Those who prefer the print version of Injustice: Year Two can look forward to Chapters 7 and 8 being collected in Injustice: Year Two #4 later this month.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Review in Progress

Editor’s Note: Reviewing an MMORPG is a big job that can take weeks to complete. Our final score will be awarded at that time, once we’ve put in enough time to get a sense of The Elder Scrolls Online’s true strengths and weaknesses. In the meantime, our intrepid reviewer Leif Johnson will update you regularly on his progress, giving impressions on various aspects and events along the way.

March 30: Early Access Day One Impressions

During the earliest hours of Sunday’s preorder-exclusive access, when thousands of would-be emperors huddled into the major starting cities like Morrowind’s Davon’s Watch, The Elder Scrolls Online performed as though it’d been out since 2012. Aside from a midday connection drop that was probably my provider’s fault, I didn’t even encounter significant lag during my 16-hour marathon. Even better, log-in queues, long a staple of highly anticipated massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) launches, were missing in action here thanks to the effectiveness of developer ZeniMax Online’s so-called “megaserver.” True, the main floodgates won’t open until ESO officially goes live on April 4, but Tamriel was crowded enough during Early Access to demonstrate that ZeniMax might be able to handle it. If this keeps up, we could be looking at the smoothest MMO launch in years. Which is good, because there’s work to do hammering out bugs elsewhere.

UN Taps iBeacon for Educational Efforts

The list of institutions and organizations turning to iBeacon for practical and educational purposes continues to balloon at a significant pace.

iBeacon, as we know, is the indoor positioning system described by Apple as a “new class of low-powered, low-cost transmitters” that enables push notifications to be sent to iOS devices in close proximity.

Most recently, iBeacon is being used for the UN’s “International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action,” which will happen later this week at the New Museum in New York City. The event features an exhibit

How to Bring Your Facebook Chat Heads Out of Facebook and Onto Your Springboard

Last year, iOS developer Adam Bell surprised us all with a free jailbreak tweak dubbed Message Box that allowed us to bring Facebook’s Chat Heads out of the Facebook application and out onto our SpringBoard so that we would message people from our Home Screen or from other applications.

‘CamText’ Lets You See Where You’re Walking While You Text Message/iMessage

One of the big issues you might run into while text messaging is that your mind gets consumed in text messaging and sometimes you’re won’t be paying enough attention to your surroundings and you might bump into something. It’s like the old saying goes – you can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.

Fortunately, iOS developers Sassoty and Phillip Tennen are bringing eyes to your Messages application for you, so that while you text message or iMessage someone, you can see where you’re going. It’s a new jailbreak tweak called CamText, and it uses the rear-facing camera to give you
