Submission + - Shards Online, sandbox mmo kickstarter #2 up!

TyFoN writes:

From the former lead engineer and lead designer of Ultima Online comes Shards Online. "Citadel Studios has the right team to give the sandbox genre what it’s been missing" — Rob Denton, co-creator of Dark Age of Camelot Experience limitless content. It's a game that lets you experience hundreds of different worlds with just one client! You can play on official Citadel Studios servers or join any of the hundreds of community run servers. Each server has different rules and content, allowing you to find a game universe that fits your exact play style.

Previously Citadel Studios have attempted a kickstarter failed, however this time they seem much better prepared and I really hope the kickstarter project will succeed this 2nd time!
A proper sandbox where you can create your own worlds. And who better to make it?

Submission + - Don't use iphone below freezing-> 2

TyFoN writes: According to a Norwegian woman, her phone exploded when driving to work. When contacting Apple support, they explained that the phone is only rated for 0C to 35C and since she used it in -12C the warranty was void.
This means that if you live in a country where the temperature potentially drops below 0C (32F), be careful of when you use the phone.
The article is from Aftenposten in Norwegian, a translated version is available through google.

At this time (06:50 am) in Oslo, Norway I still can not see any paid apps on the market, but hopefully this will be updated during the day.
