Submission + - Horrific "Amnesia" gets Windows/Mac/Linux release (

Yosho writes: Indie developer Frictional Games, who previously developed the Penumbra series, has released their latest masterpiece, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It's a first-person horror/adventure game that has been getting great reviews, and the best part is that they've released a native Linux version. Time to support gaming on Linux!

Submission + - China's iPad clone runs Android, is 1/5 the price (

Yosho writes: China is always pretty good at producing knockoffs of popular devices, and they've done it again; this time it's the iPed, which looks remarkably like the iPad. It comes in a similar box and looks like it's running on pretty similar hardware, but there's a twist — it runs Android and only costs $105. All I want to know is, when will they be selling them in America and can I get one?

Submission + - Japanese Windows 7 gets official "OS-tan" and them (

Yosho writes: "The OS-tans — cute, fan-made anime characters that represent individual operating systems — have long been very popular among Japanese internet users. Microsoft is officially embracing them and has created an official OS-tan, Nanami Madobe, to represent Windows 7 in Japan. The Japanese premium set of Windows 7 Ultimate will contain an exclusive wallpaper and sound set based on her; on top of that, the character is being voiced by popular voice actress and singer Nana Mizuki. Operating systems have never been cuter!"
