Mobile Gaming is Dominating the Gaming Industry


In the past video games came on cartridges, you played them on a big fat tube television in your parent’s basement and you told your friends about the level you reached at school the next day.   Now you might still be living in your parent’s basement but the future of gaming is solidly mobile.   Anywhere, any-time, high quality gaming, that fits nicely in our pocket, is yours to have (at least on non Blackberry devices ~ zing).  The mobile entertainment industry was worth $33 billion last year, which is due in part to the success of smartphones like the iPhone and the plethora of Android devices like the HTC Thunderbolt.  These high powered computers were just waiting for people to turn them into gaming consoles.

The industry is undergoing a titanic shift, factors like the ease of publishing to the App Store, the extremely low cost to become a developer, the growth of Freemium games (games given away for free with revenues coming from alternative sources) and the rise of the female gamers (53% of mobile gamers are female) are rewriting the rules and making millionaires overnight.

Geekaphone has taken an in depth look at the numbers and stats behind the industry and have put together this informative infographic, all you have to do is pause your game for 1.4 minutes to take a look.

Is someone listening to your phone calls? How secure is your mobile phone?

Shhh, did you hear that? That buzzing on the phone line… the weird clicking and echo, you know what that is? That’s the FBI recording your phone calls… or maybe Rupert Murdoch getting ready for a full page spread on your dirty little secrets. Put on your tinfoil hat and join us in seeing how secure your phone is.
Geekaphone spent some time looking at wiretapping and how your phone can be used against you. Is the government spying on you? Probably not, but we have a list of ways to secure your phone and make sure that it is harder for someone to spy on you. Be sure to share your thoughts and tips in the comments.

Pimp your Phone: how to make your phone stand out

Who wants a boring phone? Nobody. Maybe you can’t afford a diamond and gold plated special edition of the iPhone (that and they’re pretty garish unless your a Saudi prince) and perhaps you’ll never be seen at the Palm playing Angry Birds with Rihanna. That doesn’t mean you can’t add a personal twist to your fancy new phone. From cases and ringtone to engravings, apps and backgrounds there are lots of ways to make your phone stand out. We’ve collectively made accessories a billion dollar industry, they’re the modern day racing stripe.
Interestingly you’ll probably price shop your phone to the last penny and then drop a tonne of cash on bling before you walk out the door. Accessories have crazy high profit margins, way more than the actual phone itself so your frugality is probably wasted on the phone. Geekaphone has taken a quick look at the industry and put together another tasty infographic. Enjoy!
