Astro Gaming's A50 wireless headset: the A40 and Mixamp 5.8 become one for $300

Astro announces A50 wireless headset,

Turtle Beach may have acquired the MLG-endorsement crown that Astro Gaming used to solely hold for its headsets, but it's no matter as Astro has something else up its sleeve: the A50 wireless headset. Announced here at E3, the A50 is essentially the result of embedding the Mixamp 5.8's wireless chops into its flagship A40, finally sparing users of any pesky wiring and external beltpacks. Naturally, the stereo headset is compatible with Xbox 360, PS3 and computers, and it features Dolby virtual 7.1 surround sound -- not to mention Astro's signature game and voice chat mixing control (built into the earcup) so you can dial your game audio in the way you want. The A50 sports an internal battery that recharges over USB and a stand is included for storage that also houses its Mixamp 5.8 TX-esque wireless transmitter. That transmitter can also send sound to multiple A50s, although there is currently no word on exactly how many. Notably, the headset uses Kleer lossless audio technology and you'll have a choice between three EQ presets to shape overall voicing of the sound -- both firsts for Astro. The A50 is slated to hit shelves soon priced at $300, and we'll be sure to bring you our impressions as once we check it out here on the show floor. For now, you'll find a closeup of the headset itself after the break.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 caught on camera with S-pen slot, quad-core CPU (video)

Samsung Galaxy Note 101 caught on camera with Spen slot, quadcore CPU

Last time the winds of hearsay rustled our tech feathers, word was Samsung had pegged its Tab 2 10.1 for a quad-core CPU transplant. While the company went on the record to shoot down that pesky rumor, it remained suspiciously mum where the Galaxy Note 10.1 was concerned. Now, thanks to a brief video demo over on German site All About Samsung, it appears the formerly dual-core slate refresh we had a chance to preview back in March could, indeed, be set for a processor swap. Though it's still far from official, the new Note 10.1 shown above looks to be sharing not only some of the Galaxy S III's specs -- quad-core Exynos processor with Mali 400 MP GPU and a TouchWizzed Android 4.0.4-- but also that formerly problematic Pebble Blue finish. And much to our delight, it also appears as if the company's revised the tablet's design slightly, adding in a convenient slot on the lower left hand side for S-Pen stowage. Not convinced by mere words alone? The head past the break for video evidence of this purported hardware upgrade.

Wii U unlocks the key to the Miiverse, Nintendo promises mobile integration to come

As its pronoun heavy name indicates, the Wii U is all about the social. With that in mind, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata unveiled the Miiverse, a coming together of players' avatars that will live on the console's home screen. Log in, and you'll see your Mii, your friends' Miis, Miis on your Wii U system and Miis of folks playing the same game as you in your locality. The Mii Wara Wara features Miis gathered around tiles representing Wii U games, with speech bubbles offering up real messages from other players.

There's plenty of social functionality built into the touchscreen controller, as well, users can text with other players to get information -- like gaming tips. Info can be input with a virtual keyboard, smartphone-style or can be handwritten or doodled with a stylus, à la the 3DS. The controller also seems to be a useful tool when using your system to teleconference on the big screen, so you can, say browse the web for info while chatting, tablet-style.

Nintendo has also promised more integration with with non-Wii devices -- functionality that likely won't hit at launch. Since the information is accessible via mobile browser, you'll be able to carry social functionality over to your 3DS, PC and mobile phone -- it's not Super Mario for iOS, but it's a small step toward a more mobile Nintendo, we guess.

Update: Join us past the break to view the webstream for yourself!

Microsoft buys every 'Smart Glass' domain it can think of, E3 goers nod approvingly

Microsoft buys every 'Smart Glass' domain it can think of, E3 goers nod approvingly A wise thing to do right before you launch a new product? Vacation, if we're being honest. But if we're being forced to pick another, we'd say registering domain names germane to said product ain't a half bad idea, either. Microsoft has seemingly snapped up a healthy few "Smart Glass"-related domains, giving us more reason to believe that the whispers we've been hearing about a wireless streaming doodad have some merit. With E3 festivities kicking off this evening, we're guessing it's just a matter of time before the list (shown after the break) stops forwarding to Bing and starts forwarding to... well, awesomeness. Refresh fingers ready?

How ABC Family is using social media to launch the new season of ?Pretty Little Liars?

Posted by on May 31, 2012

Once of the most talked about TV shows across the social web is ABC?s Pretty Little Liars (PLL). In February we provided an inside look at how the show has captivated fans and made it to the number one television show in Twitter?s Year in Review. On Tuesday, season three will launch, a show that will no doubt dominate the social TV charts throughout the summer.

For the new season, the network is ramping up its social TV strategy with a few key activations that include integrating a major reveal from last season. They released the ?Pretty Little Puzzle Hunt?, a rebus puzzle game that unfolds across multiple web sites and a new music video to amplify the buzz leading up to the new season. We spoke with ABC Family?s Senior Vice President and Creative Director Michelle Walenz and Vice President of Marketing Danielle Mullin.

(A scene from this summer?s season premiere of PLL)

Lost Remote: Tell me about the music video that is being launched to coincide with the new season? Are there any social elements?

Michelle Walenz: The ?Pretty Little Liars? music video (below) we?ve produced to help launch the summer season features a new song from emerging artist ZZ Ward. �The song is called, ?When the Casket Drops.? �While that title may sound a bit ominous, the song is actually very romantic and filled with passion and a strong sense of loyalty to those you love, so it?s perfect for the story of our ?Pretty Little Liars.? �We know that our viewers devour any new clues about the incredible mystery and heightened suspense our show producers have created, so we really wanted to highlight new clues for them that we think will generate posts, tweets and blogs. �At the same time, we want to remind viewers of some critical story points that have happened throughout the previous episodes that may play a role in upcoming episodes. �It?s about finding a balance of both.

With one of the most social audiences in television, our viewers are eager to know the answers to questions like ? whose empty grave is Emily standing above? �Why does Mona become so enraged, she upends an entire table? �What does that necklace say and who is it from? �Our #Agame hash tag is included in the music video to help generate tweets. � ZZ Ward?s music is generating a lot of buzz as well, so we?re really excited about the social conversation that?s happening and the anticipation that this new music video is generating.

LR: What?s ABC Family?s social TV strategy for the new season?

Danielle Mullin: Our strategy for the new season has been to keep the momentum going from the spring finale to the summer premiere, not letting a day go by without giving fans more content to be excited about. We revealed that Mona was ?A? in the season finale, but we?ve been actively messaging via, Twitter and Facebook that the reveal of A was just the tip of the iceberg, and we don?t think ?A? is gone forever. �In fact, the tagline for the new season is ?Time to Bring Your A Game? and the #AGame graphic is being featured in our on-air launch campaign. �We?re having a lot of fun with ?A? in the social space!

We?ve even created the Pretty Little Puzzle Hunt which is an online ?game? that ?A? has created for fans?ultimately providing them with a riddle they must answer in order to unlock an exclusive sneak peek at the summer premiere. � In addition to being really rich content experience, it?s a great way to extend the social experience beyond our own platforms and on to other sites that reach our core audience, hopefully bringing new fans into the mix.

LR: How do you plan on outdoing the success of last season?

Mullin: The drama is just getting started on the show with more plot twists than ever, so naturally fans will be speculating about what happens next. �Buzz-worthy shows come from expert storytelling with jaw-dropping cliffhangers and unanswered questions that leave fans dying to find out what happens next. �Our team develops creative assets ? videos, games, blogs ? that incorporate mini-cliffhangers and tantalizing teases, which we then use in the social media space to amplify the conversation and take it to the next level.

LR: How does the Pretty Little Puzzle Hunt Game work? What partners did you work with to develop it? Will there be any linear TV integrations?

Mullin: The Pretty Little Puzzle Hunt is an online game that ?A? has created for fans. �She has been ?the voice? of several of our online engagement activities and they have been tremendously successful so it makes sense for us to continue to evolve that strategy.

This time around, ?A? is offering fans a sneak peek at the summer premiere, but only if they play her game! �Every few days ?A? will put a rebus puzzle piece on one of 15 websites participating in the game. �?A? will be giving fans hints on� so they know where to find the puzzle pieces. �Once all the pieces are assembled in the right order, they will form a riddle, and on June 1st, the answer to that riddle will unlock the sneak peek on�

LR: How involved are cast members in social outreach?

Mullin: The cast and crew, including Executive Producer Marlene King, are all extremely passionate about social media. �They tweet everyday from the set, sharing behind-the-scenes photos that generate an enormous amount of viral conversation in the social space. �Once talent shares their photos, we?ll share them with our entire Facebook community to amplify the buzz. � Our cast and crew also interact with fans on Twitter, creating a tremendous amount of excitement among our fans. �They?re also a marketing dream-come-true?always reminding fans to tune-in and actively supporting all of our marketing initiatives related to the show. �The cast and crew even came up with their own social media campaign that we are going to implement on the day of the premiere. �We?ll be encouraging fans to change their Twitter icons to something red to tie-in to a storyline related to a red trench coast.
