You may remember Pixel Qi, an ambitious display maker looking to provide users with brilliant displays that not only save energy, but which are actually readable in sunlight. Since we covered their 7" and 10.1" displays way back in May, the company has continued working, announcing in a blog post yesterday a new display which "matches the resolution of the iPad3 screen, and its full image quality including matching or exceeding contrast, color saturation, the viewing angle, and so forth with massive power savings." In the post, Mary Lou Jepsen, founder of Pixel Qi, goes on to explain the display's special low power mode which "runs at a full 100x power reduction from the peak power consumed by the iPad3 screen."
Of course, the new display's ratings in the table above are "proposed" and not quite official just yet.
Those who dig the photography aggregation site 500px can finally enjoy all of its offerings on their mobile device, as the official 500px app is now available in the Play Store. The app is just as simple and elegant as the site itself, paying specific attention to highlight all of the work on display instead of offering an over-the-top interface.
Once the app is fired up, you have a grid of images available, and tapping on any image displays it in greater detail.
While Android users in Czech, Israel, Poland, and Mexico have been happily buying apps from Google Play for some time now, up till today, devs in these countries haven't been quite so lucky. In fact, they haven't been able to publish any apps, unless they were free.
Today, however, all that changes - Google has decided to expand its list of supported foreign merchants, and Polish, Israel, Mexican, and Czech developers are now included!
Sidescrollers. Guns. Jumping. Brown. It's as if all of these things were just meant to go together since the dawn of time, yet no one dares combine them for fear of failing. Finally, one developer set out to do the unthinkable and bring them all together in a never before seen combination of awesome, old, and stuff. The end result was Gunman Clive, a retro-style sidescroller of kickass proportions.
