You all use torrents for downloading illegal stuff and #nsfw stuff right ? Then you MUST know uTorrent.
uTorrent, the most popular bittorrent client on the internets has released a new alpha which supports syncing with all your devices which run either iOS or Android, and even your consoles (Xbox 360, PS3 only ).
With this new alpha, you ll be able to drag drop into your devices, and if necessary, they can be automatically set to convert into the required format and then sync. The device integration is expected to be integrated in the upcoming stable release if all goes well. If rumors are to be believed, this feature may be exclusive to a uTorrent plus, the premium paid version. Well, nobody wants to miss the alpha now, so here you go, download.
Or you know, you can download Vuze which has been having the same feature for an year now 😛 .

The best looking racing game for the original iPad as well as other iOS devices, Real racing 2 has been updated especially for the latest gen. iPad , the iPad2 which supports full HD output.

The deal is sealed , no more doubts , no more ifs, buts. Windows phone will ship on Nokia devices and Nokia’s strongholds like Navigation, operator partnerships.. etc will be used in all Windows phone devices , thereby adding muscle to the “Third ecosystem”. And both parties have agreed to pay in the big B’s for each other’s contributions. For us users, the deal is : we may expect a Nokia Windows phone late 2011 , but definitely they ship in volumes in 2012. Apparently Nokia and Microsoft are working together right *now* on a portfolio of models with a 4 year timeframe, which is my guess , is the transition period from Symbian to Windows Phone.
Here’s a video of the deal’s summary ( Pretty boring, if you ask me ) :
