Games and fun for your Nokia C6-00

A facebook fan, Dev Suthar, commented today looking for a game for his Nokia C6-00. And that's when I realised that I haven't featured an article on fun stuff for the Nokia C6-00 for some time. So here goes:

Ovi Maps Racing
This is by far the most intuitive and interactive game that I have seen for a long time. Unlike normal racing games where you race through pre-determined tracks, this game allows you to race through any track on your Map! Race in your home town even!! Damn, I wish I had a C6-00 right now..

Puppy Talk
Puppy Talk is yet another free Symbian app for the Nokia C6-00. This app is not about cuddling up and flirting with your girlfriend, it's a remake on the popular Talking Tom Cat app. I always preferred dogs to cats..

Scary Camera!
Now this one might let you cuddle up with your girl if you manage to scare her enough. What does this app do? Well why don't you find out for yourself.. stay alive!
Get scared!

Game Review: Civilization V for Mac Lion

The Pundit Report has reviewed a variant of the Civilization V game sub titled the Campaign Edition. This is a PC game that has been ported over to Macintosh and is now available as a Mac OS X Lion Game.

The review starts with the discrepancies at the Mac App Store where the system requirements for the game are quite low. However, upon testing it was found that the game actually loaded the machine even at the lowest settings. The consensus is that this is a really poor port of the game from PC to Mac.

If you have a Mac, you might want to check for any refund policies with Aspyr before you go ahead and get this game. Please note that this game also does not support Steam.

3PL, and the software that runs it

Third-party logistics or 3PL uses special logistics companies to do stuff that have traditionally been performed in-house. According to Wiki definition, third-party logistics includes any form of outsourcing of logistics that were previously performed within the company itself. If a company with its own warehousing facilities decides to employ external transportation, this would be an example of third-party logistics. 

Logistics is an emerging business area in many countries and so there are a lot of companies that provide these services. In today's computer age, automation is everywhere. Just like industrial automation, logistics is also highly automated to improve the throughput and efficiency of it's services. There are a lot of firms that provide software for logistics companies. But for an already high tensed process, the software has to be extremely smooth and problem free if you are to truly make your system efficient. The software should also be free of bugs and other problems that usually crop up in bad coding. 3PL Central provides great third party logistics software. Just like companies that specialize in logistics, this software is from a company that specializes in logistics software. So you can understand the kind of focus that they might have given it.

The 3PL Central software also allows you to view the whole inventory online so that you don't have to multiple spreadsheets at a time - and we all know how irritating spreadsheets can be.

And you should also note that among the large number of partners that 3PL has, they also partner with Motorola and Rackspace.

If you are really more interested in 3PL rather than the software company, you could check out some of these good 3PL resources at their website. They have got webinars, white papers, case studies and then some.

Chrome Case for HTC

This flashy chrome case for the HTC Sensation is as bling as it gets. Called the Case-Mate Barely There, this case for the unlocked HTC Sensation has the slimmest profile to get you as close to your smartphone as possible. In no way does this mean any sacrifice to protection - a layer of hard plastic and polish protect your device from the rigors of daily use. Precision engineering has made sure that the case hugs the form of the Sensation/ Sensation XE at each and every point such that there is very little change in the profile of the device.

Now if you, like me, are turned of by all things blingy then you just have to check their Black Barely There case for the HTC Sensation. This case makes you device look slimmer than it actually is because of the unique matt black finish while still providing adequate protection from nicks and scratches due to the hard-to-break plastic shell.

If your searching for a case for your girl friends Sensation XE, then the Pink Barely There case for HTC Sensation XE might be just the one you're looking for.
