  • Rolocule turns your iPhone and Apple TV into a Wii-style gaming system (video)


    If you’ve ever wanted to hurl your iPhone through your TV while enthusiastically playing tennis, now’s your chance. This week, Rolocule Games launched an iOS app — Motion Tennis — that turns your Apple TV into a Wii-esque gaming console. To connect devices to Apple TVs, the game relies on AirPlay Mirroring, which can be toggled on in the settings menu. Once your iOS device has been transformed into a tennis racket, you can control the action on your screen — just be sure to strap the phone to your wrist, lest you become the poor sod to launch a new meme. If Wimbledon’s whetted your appetite for more tennis, you can find the game on iTunes or watch the video after the break.

  • Yahoo Mail adds simple Flickr photo sharing

    Yahoo Mail adds simple Flickr photo sharing

    Many criticized a pre-Marissa Mayer Yahoo for doing little to integrate acquisitions with its core services, even when they were popular services like Del.icio.us. We can’t accuse the company of negligence today, as it just added simple Flickr photo sharing to Yahoo Mail. Those drafting messages just have to tap an arrow to attach files from their photo streams, and they can sign up for Flickr on the spot. While there’s only so many of us that could use Flickr sharing right now, Yahoo teases that there are more Mail upgrades in the pipeline — it’s not done fighting Gmail and Outlook just yet.

  • Chrome OS dev channel gains Quickoffice powers, lets users edit native Excel and Word files

    Chrome OS dev channel gains Quickoffice powers, lets users edit native Excel and Word files

    Chrome OS hardware continues to proliferate, and on the software front, Google continues to add features to the platform in the hopes of persuading more folks to exit the traditional PC paradigm. Today marks a significant step in achieving that latter goal, as the dev channel of Chrome OS has received the ability to edit Excel and Word files thanks to Quickoffice integration. While it’s not ready for public consumption just yet, it shows that Google’s getting close to fulfilling its promise to deliver native doc editing to the Pixel and other Chromebooks.

    Should you be among those on the dev channel of Chrome OS, you can enable the functionality now by going to chrome://flags, enabling document editing and restarting your machine. According to developer François Beaufort — the man who discovered the functionality — editing’s still a glitchy process, but the more folks that use the feature now, the faster the problems can be found and fixed. The power of productivity is in your hands, people, so get cracking squashing those bugs!

  • Editor's Letter: More than a point release

    In each issue of Distro, editor-in-chief Tim Stevens publishes a wrap-up of the week in news.

    DNP Editor's Letter More than a point release

    This week is Microsoft’s time to shine. Its Build conference, typically held later in the year, kicked off on Wednesday and along with it came a lot more about Windows 8.1 — which we thought we already knew plenty about, honestly. But there was more to learn, including a new milestone for the Windows Store: 100,000 apps. Well, almost 100,000 apps. Steve Ballmer said the store was “approaching” that number and has racked up “hundreds of millions” of downloads. A bit of a far cry from Apple’s 50 billion, but hey, it’s early days yet.

    More interesting to me is the inclusion of native 3D-printing support in Windows 8.1. Good ‘ol 2D printers were certainly common before the traditional driver came into standard practice, but that market didn’t really take off until they effectively became plug and play. One could say it’s perhaps a bit early for that kind of native support to be needed in Windows for a 3D printer, but better too soon than too late.
