Conventional wisdom tells us that, in the event of a zombie apocalypse, we have two options: Collect as many weapons as possible — the explosive kind, preferably — and stage a futile, dramatic last stand, or, alternatively, make a run for it — a desperate (and inevitably fruitless) search for someplace safe.
This topic is frequently explored in video games. Last year’s The Walking Dead won numerous game-of-the-year awards, while Capcom’s Resident Evil remains an icon of the genre, having spawned nearly two dozen game titles and four Hollywood productions, with a fifth on the way.
But while zombie business may be booming, game companies are facing an apocalypse of their own, as the cloud, social

Can Facebook videos be a scam?
Q. I tried to watch a video on Facebook, but it didn’t work. It made me install a new driver and then still didn’t play the video. What gives?
A. I doubt that was a real video at all. This is a scam that is common on Facebook. The post looks like a really interesting or scandalous video. When you click it, it asks you to install a driver to watch it. What
By now, it’s a fait accompli that tablet sales will surpass those of the PC. The only question that remains is: When?
That day is not too far away, if a head analyst at technology incubator BitChemy Ventures is to be believed. According to Singh’s projections, global tablet shipments will increase to nearly 80 million in the fourth quarter, while PC shipments will slide to around 70 million to 75 million.
“These shipment estimates could be affected by the pace of low cost tablet penetration in emerging markets and any changes to the Windows 8 operating system,” the analyst said. “However, given the scale of the figures, I can say with confidence that quarterly tablet shipments should overtake those
NEW YORK — It’s your standard all-in-one consumer-oriented desktop computer: the guts of the system are concealed behind a 27-inch touch-screen. Microsoft’s tile-based Windows 8 operating system inhabits that screen.
Except it is anything but standard. Lay it flat, and something funny happens. Windows 8 disappears, and a new touch overlay called Aura takes over.
You have entered Lenovo’s world of tabletop computing, a social environment for playing games, sharing photos and listening to music. I’m testing the company’s new IdeaCentre Horizon, a dual-purpose system that was one of the coolest things I saw at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
I was pumped to try it then, and now that it’s finally becoming available to consumers, I was equally eager to try it at home. While
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Microsoft is retooling the latest version of its Windows operating system to address complaints and confusion that have been blamed for deepening a slump in personal computer sales.
The tune up announced Tuesday won’t be released to consumers and businesses until later this year. The changes, part of a software package given the codename “Blue,” are a tacit acknowledgment of the shortcomings in Windows 8, a radical overhaul of Microsoft Corp.’s ubiquitous operating system.
With the makeover it released last October, Microsoft hoped to play a more prominent role in the growing mobile device market while still maintaining its dominance in PCs. But Windows 8′s design, which emphasizes interactive tiles and touch controls, seems to
