Unreal development kit coming to iOS

Unreal development kit (UDK) is coming to iOS according to an announcement made by Epic Games at the Korean Games Conference.

What this means is that any iOS developer can download the free UDK and potentially start making worlds as breathtaking as Epic Citadel for iPhone and iPad. Once they've gotten accomplished at it, it sounds like it's a short jump -- and business decision -- to becoming an Unreal Engine 3 licensee and exploding across our iOS devices.

Jobs of War, Cupertino Vice, what Unreal Engine games would you like to see?

Amazon: Kindle better for unitaskers in bikinis

Amazon's new Kindle ad says a) it's easier to read an ebook on in direct sunlight, b) it's smaller and lighter, and c) it's way less expensive than Apple's iPad.

It doesn't show what happens when the guy spins his chair around, quickly corrects a PowerPoint pitch so he doesn't have to go back to the office, wows the bikini lady with Epic Citadel, then looks up a great restaurant on the full color web, gets directions from maps, and takes her off to dinner while they listen to streaming music.

(This is the second Amazon Kindle ad to feature a lady in the sun; interesting demo they're targeting.)

iOS 4.1 includes HDR photography for iPhone 4, but did Apple roll the technology themselves or did they buy it along with UK company Imsense Ltd? MacRumors has done some sleuthing and they think the latter:

According to a note on the website of Braveheart Ventures, which backed imsense, the company was acquired by "an undisclosed trade buyer in July 2010". According to a press release from Braveheart, it received £342,000 for its minority stake in imsense, more than doubling its original £150,000 investment in two years.

iOS 4.1 features: HD video uploads to YouTube

iPhone 4 and iPod touch (2010), with iOS 4.1, can now upload HD video directly to YouTube. Previously, under iOS 4.0, iPhone 4 videos would be compressed down to SD when uploaded to YouTube. 4.1 fixes that. Just tap the action button at the bottom right and share HD straight up to YouTube.

The process is as simple as checking the HD option on the YouTube upload screen. Note, however, due to file sizes a Wi-Fi connection is required on iPhone 4. (No 3G HD uploads).

If you've tried it out, let us know how it works for you. For more, check out our complete iOS 4.1 walkthrough.
