  • Chrome for Android update adds fullscreen mode for tablets, Google Translate integration


    Chrome for Android just turned 28! Version 28, which today moved out of beta to the stable channel, includes a pair of notable additions, along with the typical variety of bug fixes and performance improvements. The first new feature is Google Translate integration. When you come across a website in a foreign language, the browser will offer to translate the text into your language. Additionally, tablet users are now able to take advantage of the fullscreen mode already available on smartphones. After updating to 28, you should be able to scroll down the page and see the toolbar disappear. Finally, there’s a new interface option for right-to-left languages, which include Arabic, Farsi and Hebrew. Snag the update at the source link below.

  • Sony's four pillar approach to game publishing on PlayStation 4 aims to level the playing field

    Sony’s already said that it’s making game publishing on PlayStation 4 even easier than it is on the PlayStation 3, but Senior Account Manager of Development at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Agostino Simonetta today explained exactly what that means. Sony’s apparently applying a “four pillar” approach to publishing, as follows:

    1. “Every developer is a publisher”
    2. “Equality of opportunity”
    3. “Personal relationship”
    4. “No hurdles, just games”

    It’s this multi-tiered approach that Sony believes will attract developers to the PlayStation 4. “Every single developer is a publisher, as far as we’re concerned. We don’t separate, we don’t segregate indies from traditional publishers,” Simonetta said, in reference to the current console generation’s “segregation” of indie (primarily digital) games from more traditional publishers (primarily disc-based). More specifically, individual devs can work with Sony one-on-one to establish promotions and other details. Perhaps most importantly, all developers will hear back on publishing approval within one week from Sony. Head to the source link below for more details from Simonetta, straight out of the annual Develop conference.

  • ABB to build over 200 EV charging stations in the Netherlands' largest network

    ABB to build over 200 EV charging stations in the Netherlands' network

    Swiss company ABB has been chosen by Fastned to provide chargers for over 200 EV charging stations throughout the Netherlands, in what will be that nation’s largest such network. The largely solar-fueled stations will be spaced out along Dutch highways at a maximum distance of 50 kilometers from each other. Fastned will be using ABB’s Terra fast chargers, which are compatible with a large number of vehicles, including “all major car brands from Europe, Asia and the USA.” Each charger will also be connected to the internet, allowing ABB to push software updates and provide customers with remote assistance. The first batch of chargers will land roadside in September with rollout expected to be completed in 2015. There’s one more image and video after the break.

  • Philips intros Ambilight+Hue integration, 60-inch Elevation TV (video)

    Philips intros AmbilightHue integration, 60inch Elevation TV video

    Philips makes colorful Hue light bulbs, and it (indirectly) makes colorful Ambilight TVs. Wouldn’t it make sense if the two devices talked to each other? They do now: a new Ambilight+Hue app for Android and iOS coordinates Hue bulbs with compatible TVs, spreading Ambilight effects across the entire room. To mark the occasion, Philips and TPVision are launching the 60-inch Elevation TV (not pictured here). The 3D-capable, 1080p LCD introduces a four-sided Ambilight system that produces a fuller lighting effect when the set is wall-mounted. It’s also the thinnest Philips TV to date, at 0.54 inches thick, and it includes the requisite smart TV features like Netflix, web browsing and Miracast media sharing. Ambilight+Hue should be available now, although Europeans will have to wait until later in the summer to buy the Elevation for about £2,800 ($4,168).
