Rockstar already announced that the game will be available on PS3 and XBOX with nothing yet confirmed for a PC release. The game will go on sale on 17th September 2013, a little later than planned although Rockstar attributed this delay to finishing touches to make the game a truly exceptional one !

It was exactly 12 years ago that sadly for many and joyfully for others, Microsoft announced that it had no plans to continue using Clippy.
Some of you might be wondering 'Who the heck is Clippy ?'
Clippy is the little impersonated paper clip who used to help (or sometimes annoy) you when using Microsoft Word both for PC and MAC from 1997 to late 2003 ! Although Microsoft gave you the ability to change the office assistant to other characters such as HoverBot, Will and Mother Nature, Clippy remains the most famous one !
Clippy was abolished after the feature drew a strongly negative response from many users and even Microsoft employees.

The above picture shows the Microsoft staff in 1978, just 3 years after the company was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen in the U.S. state of New Mexico.
In fact Microsoft was born exactly 38 years ago on the 4th of April 1975 after Paul Allen showed Bill Gates an issue of 'Popular Electronics' that inspired both Allen and Gates to develop an implementation of the programming language BASIC for the system.
Nowadays Microsoft has come a long way from 1975 to become one of the largest companies in the world with an estimated $41 billion in assets ! It is also the owner of networking giant 'Skype', search engine 'Bing' and gaming console 'Xbox' although it is mostly known for it's operating system 'Windows'.
Some rumblings from Daring Fireballall's John Gruber on a Branch thread this evening point to possible delays in iOS 7 and perhaps subsequently OS 10.9.
What I've heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it.
As he points out, Apple had this problem/solution before. In 2007, Apple had to devote some Mac resources towards getting the iPhone out the door. The press statement at the time read:
iPhone contains the most sophisticated software ever shipped on a mobile device, and finishing it on time has not come without a price we had to borrow some key software engineering and QA resources from our Mac OS X team. As a result, we will not be able to release Leopard at our Worldwide Developers Conference in early June as planned. While Leopard's features will be complete by then, we cannot deliver the quality release that we and our customers expect from us.
However, the Wall Street Journal says:
Apple is also expected to ship the next version of its iOS mobile operating system around midyear, other people familiar with the matter have said.
MG Siegler adds:
Since we're talking whispers, the one thing I've heard multiple times now is about some sort of biometric scanner on the new iPhone. Perhaps not surprising given the AuthenTec buy - but surprised it would be this soon. Still, have heard it could be a big part of not only authentication, but payments of some sort (maybe even through Passbook) down the road. The most intriguing whisper: that Apple could charge a fee for devs to use it.
Gruber points out that Apple engineers carrying iOS have protective screens on them so it is hard to see the OS, something we've heard has been common practice for some time.
Tickets are available from our store in Birkirkara for â‚¬5 or â‚¬10.
Prizes up to â‚¬200 to be won !
Foods and Drinks will also be served on the house throughout the day !

Duke Nukem 3D is a first-person shooter video game developed by 3D Realms and published by GT Interactive Software. The full version was released for the PC (the shareware version was released on January 29, 1996). It is a sequel to the platform games Duke Nukem and Duke Nukem II published by Apogee. An expansion pack, Plutonium Pak, was released in November 1996.
Duke Nukem 3D features the adventures of the titular macho Duke Nukem (voiced by Jon St. John), who fights against an alien invasion on Earth. Along with Wolfenstein 3D and Doom,Duke Nukem 3D is considered responsible for popularizing first-person shooters. It was released to major acclaim; reviewers praised the interactivity of the environment, level design, gameplay and unique risqué humor (a mix of pop-culture satire and lampooning of over-the-top Hollywood action heroes). Its lasting appeal and impact on modern video games has led to its being considered one of the most important video games of all time. It was a commercial hit, selling about 3.5 million copies. The game's violent nature, erotic elements and portrayal of women have incited controversy. After fifteen years in development hell, a direct sequel was released called Duke Nukem Forever.
A term used to describe Internet websites ending with the domain suffix .com. This term started being used and was popularized in 1995 during the start of the dot-com boom, when companies and individuals in large quantities started websites on the Internet and started making a lot of money. Between 1995 and 2001, the Internet experienced what is now referred to as the dot-com bubble, which was the time dot-com companies and websites were making an enormous amount of money primarily off of stocks until the bubble started to burst in 2000 and Internet companies started going under.
The Macintosh marketed as Mac, is a line of personal computers (PCs) designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. It is targeted mainly at the home, education, and creative professional markets, and includes the descendants of the original iMac, the entry-level Mac mini desktop model, the Mac Pro tower graphics workstation, and the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops. Its Xserveserver was discontinued on January 31, 2011. The first Macintosh actually introduced itself.
Apple Inc.'s then-chairman Steve Jobs introduced the first Macintosh on January 24, 1984. It became the first commercially successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface, rather than acommand-line interface. The Apple II saw success through the end of the decade, though popularity dropped in the 1990s as the personal computer market shifted toward the "Wintel" platform: IBM PC compatible machines running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows. In 1998, Apple consolidated its multiple consumer-level desktop models into the all-in-one iMac, which proved to be a sales success and saw the brand revitalized.
Production of the Mac is based on a vertical integration model. Apple facilitates all aspects of its hardware and creates its own operating system that is pre-installed on all Mac computers, unlike most IBM PC compatibles, where multiple sellers create and integrate hardware intended to run another company's operating software. Apple exclusively produces Mac hardware, choosing internal systems, designs, and prices. Apple uses third party components, however, such as graphics subsystems from nVidia and ATi. Current Mac CPUs use Intel's X86-64 architecture. The earliest models (1984–1994) used Motorola's 68k, and models from 1994 until 2006 used the AIM alliance's PowerPC. Apple also develops the operating system for the Mac, OS X, currently on version 10.8 "Mountain Lion". The modern Mac, like other personal computers, is capable of running alternative operating systems such as Linux, FreeBSD, and, in the case of Intel-based Macs, Microsoft Windows. However, Apple does not license OS X for use on non-Apple computers.

Yahoo.com domain is created.
In January 1994, Yang and Filo were electrical engineering graduate students at Stanford University when they created a website named "Jerry's guide to the world wide web". David and Jerry's Guide to the World Wide Web was a directory of other websites, organized in a hierarchy, as opposed to a searchable index of pages. In March 1994, "David and Jerry's Guide to the World Wide Web" was renamed "Yahoo!" The "yahoo.com" domain was created on January 18, 1995.
The word "yahoo" is an acronym for "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle" The term "hierarchical" described how the Yahoo database was arranged in layers of subcategories. The term "oracle" was intended to mean "source of truth and wisdom," and the term "officious," rather than being related to the word's normal meaning, described the many office workers who would use the Yahoo database while surfing from work. However, Filo and Yang insist they mainly selected the name because they liked the slang definition of a "yahoo" (used by college students in David Filo's native Louisiana in the late 1980s and early 1990s to refer to an unsophisticated, rural Southerner): "rude, unsophisticated, uncouth." Filo's college girlfriend often referred to Filo as a "yahoo." This meaning derives from the name of a race of fictional beings from Gulliver's Travels.
Yahoo grew rapidly throughout the 1990s. Like many search engines and web directories, Yahoo added a web portal. It also made many high-profile acquisitions. Its stock price skyrocketed during the dot-com bubble, Yahoo stocks closing at an all-time high of $118.75 a share on January 3, 2000. However, after the dot-com bubble burst, it reached a post-bubble low of $4.05 on September 26, 2001.
In 2000, Yahoo began using Google for search. Over the next four years, it developed its own search technologies, which it began using in 2004. Yahoo revamped its mail service to compete with Google's Gmail in 2007. The company struggled through 2008, with several large layoffs.
In February 2008, Microsoft Corporation made an unsolicited bid to acquire Yahoo for USD $44.6 billion. Yahoo formally rejected the bid, claiming that it "substantially undervalues" the company and was not in the interest of its shareholders. Three years later, Yahoo had a market capitalization of USD $22.24 billion. Carol Bartz replaced Yang as CEO in January 2009. In September 2011, she was removed from her position at Yahoo by the company's chairman Roy Bostock, and CFO Tim Morse was named as Interim CEO of the company.
In early 2012, after the appointment of Scott Thompson as CEO, rumors began to spread about looming layoffs. Several key executives, such as Chief Product Officer Blake Irving left. On April 4, 2012, Yahoo announced a cut of 2,000 jobs or about 14 percent of its 14,100 workers. The cut is expected to save around $375 million annually after the layoffs are completed at end of 2012. In an email sent to employees in April 2012, Thompson reiterated his view that customers should come first at Yahoo. He also completely reorganized the company.
On May 13, 2012, Yahoo issued a press release stating that Thompson was no longer with the company, and would immediately be replaced on an interim basis by Ross Levinsohn, recently appointed head of Yahoo's new Media group. Thompson's total compensation for his 130-day tenure with Yahoo was at least $7.3 million.
In June 2012, Yahoo hired former Google director, Michael Barrett as its Chief Revenue Officer.
