AOL has unveiled a web-based email client called Alto that appears to be much more refined from what we have seen from AOL in the past. Instead of having to create a new email address, users will be allowed to log into the service with their existing email addresses from GMAIL, Yahoo, AOL, and even Apple's iCloud accounts and can just use alto as a means to help facilitate email correspondence and organization. Alto will not provide you with yet another email address. Instead, it will pull in your existing previously mentioned accounts into one central location and sort email into prioritized stacks. Alto can handle up to five accounts per user. Alto is now available as a limited preview, and is accepting new users on a first come, first served basis.

Zynga, the makers of Farmville have been outbid in their pursuit for acquiring the OnGame Network from parent company Bwin.party. The Amaya Gaming company has won what essentially amounted to a bidding war to acquire OnGame Network from the Bwin.party company. This past summer, many thought that Zynga seemed to have the lead to acquire OnGame Network, but a deal has indeed been finalized between Bwin.party and Amaya Gaming. The companies involved seem to all do well in this deal, as Bwin.party will profit significantly from the sale, and Amaya Gaming is solidifying its strength in the online gaming providing business.
Over a week ago we got our hands on the Otterbox Defender Series Case for the new Apple iPhone 5. The Defender Series case offers quite a bit of protection to the iPhone 5 and Otterbox has many variants for the case for different smartphones as well. In this video I will mention why I purchased the case and where improvements have been made. I will also mention some downfalls and missed opportunities. The case offers 3 layers of protection that include a poly-carbonate inner shell, a built in hard screen protector, and a silicone outer portion that is there to absorb shock from falls as well as cover many of the ports from dirt and debris. Check out the video after the break for a close look at this case.
Four teens from Iowa who reputedly 'met' on XBOX Live have absconded with one another. Corey Sunderman, who is 16 years old, and his friend Austin Boggs, who is 13, are missing along with Jazlyn Visek, 15, and Skie Floyd, also 15. The boys had a small run-in with police on Friday night after they snuck out of Corey's house to go skateboarding, and were brought home by police because they were out after curfew. Sunderman's mom, Crystal, said that she took all of the shoes and put them in a bag in her room, expecting that the boys would not be able to run out again and skateboard without proper footwear. Instead of trying to sneak out again to go skateboarding, however, it appears that they got crazier ideas in their heads, grabbed some boots out of the garage, and were discovered to be missing on Saturday morning when Tony, Corey's father, got up to go to work and found that his wife's laptop and $400 from his paycheck were also mysteriously absent, along with a '97 Jeep that had been parked outside the family's home.
