Poll: should the next iPhone implement Apple Watch’s Force Touch pressure sensing?

Apple Watch Fource Touch 002

If you believe recent reporting by Tech News Taiwan and UDN, Force Touch, one of the technologies behind the Apple Watch, could make its way into this year’s refresh of the iPhone 6, likely to be referred to as an ‘iPhone 6s’.

To get you quickly up to speed on Force Touch, it’s a handy feature that relies on a bunch of tiny electrodes around the Watch’s display that recognize the difference between a tap and a press, thereby providing the user with quick access to contextually specific controls.

But would Force Touch make sense on the iPhone, do you think?… Read the rest of this post here

Resident Evil Review

As I creep though the familiar-yet-eerie corridors of Resident Evil, I can’t help but feel terrified of Crimson Heads. Even 19 years after I first encountered them, it’s genuinely frightening every time they spring back to life to try to tear a hole in my esophagus, but they’re also a great example of why Resident Evil still holds up. Inconsistent art and persistent clipping problems give away that this is an update of a 1996 survival-horror game, the scares, puzzles, and atmosphere of the creepy corridors of Spencer Mansion are as potent as ever.

Ever since the tweaks made in the 2002 GameCube remake, Resident Evil has been a tense game of resource management. The makeover to the many rooms, puzzles, and monsters give it an edge that significantly surpasses the original game. Every zombie you spend precious ammunition to kill becomes a ticking time bomb that’ll turn into something much more deadly if you don’t dispose of them properly with fire or headshots.
