SpiderOak backup software
SpiderOak has announced that its new online backup service is now available. The system is claimed to utilize different technology than other common backup services, such as Dropbox, and provides a single tool that consolidates backup, synchronization, sharing, remote access and storage functions. Instead of requiring users to put files into a folder to be replicated on other devices, SpiderOak enables groups of folders to be uploaded from any networked computers or external drives without modifying the folder structure. The backup also boasts file protection for synced or non-synced content, eliminating unnecessary transfers by keeping backup and sync functions separate.
DinerTown Detective Agency
PlayFirst has announced release dates for DinerTown Detective Agency, a new hidden-object game developed by Absolutist. Players take the role of Bernie as he tries to solve mysteries and become a real detective. Gameplay is spread across 20 unique locations within DinerTown, where players help the confused citizens by solving cases such as "who stuck their finger in all the jelly donuts?", "who's ordering pizzas to my house from the worst place in town?" and "who's been partying like a rock star with the zoo animals?"
iPhone activation delays
Apple and AT&T are continuing to experience problems with new iPhone activations. Following initial activation delays of up to 48 hours, Apple began notifying customers early Sunday morning that customers may experience additional delays due to "system issues" and "high activation volumes." Although Apple did not disclose any numbers, AT&T's CEO said that the carrier had "hundreds of thousands" of pre-orders for the new, faster iPhone and analysts expect about 500,000 iPhone 3G S devices to be sold by the two companies in the first weekend.
Fusion beta version
VMware is testing a new version of Fusion, its virtualization application for running alternate OS environments from within Mac OS X. Fusion allows users to run and switch between both Windows and Mac applications on one computer, and include drag-and-drop features for sending files between different operating systems. The private beta, released to a select group of beta testers, offers simpler access to common tasks in the Virtual Machine Library, added support for DirectX 9.0c with Shader Model 3 functions, experimental OpenGL 2.1 support, and a new "migration assistant" for moving from Windows XP or Vista to the Mac.
