Amazon's Appstore was unveiled last week but no one seemed to notice the Test Drive feature that could now become the biggest part of the new Appstore. Test Drive allows US customers to try Android-based apps before you buy them on Amazon.com - pretty great, huh?
Test Drive actually features an entire virtual Android smartphone with working mouse controls, which is quite the feat and quite the service that Amazon.com are giving their customers. Test Drive allows you to try out games, delete said game, browse photos, listen to some music or even surf the web from the virtual Android device.
iOS 5 is starting to peer its head and take a look around at its surroundings with rumors flying around that Apple are set to unveil the new iOS version in early spring which will lead up to a summer launch alongside the next-generation iPhone.
There are a bunch of details that are being rumored, this is what has been heard so far:
Roughly a month ago Apple unveiled the developer preview of their upcoming OS X Lion. It appears Apple have been hard at work and have ironed out the bugs with their Mac App Store distribution.
Apple are reportedly getting ready to deploy an OS X Lion update to developers that they may be calling a "GM1" release. "GM" stands for "Golden Master" and is a name that gets given to software that is complete. Could Lion be nearly ready? Maybe, maybe not.

This is something that is quite close to me, the difference between high FPS and low FPS. I'm an avid 60 fps or more fan and run a triple monitor setup comprising of Alienware AW2310, 120hz screens. It's amazing and I traded my 30" HP LP3065 for it.
The above link shows the difference between a square block bouncing up and down in three FPS settings, 15fps, 30fps and 60fps. 15fps is instantly visible as jerky, 30fps is a little better but 60fps is quite fluid. What I hope is next-gen consoles feature 60fps minimum at 1920x1080 which I am personally confident is easily attainable with current hardware.
Over 2,500 people voted on our previous poll and we asked, AMD Fusion platforms: Hot or Not in 2011?
Over half of the TweakTown readership believe that AMD Fusion platforms will be hot this year. That is good news for AMD who needs all they can get at the moment.
So far, from what we have seen, the platform does look to be the goods. Overall AMD sales will tell the real story as we evaluate next year.
Apple's iOS 4.3.1 update has gone live and is available for your iOS-based device right now. But, if you're not experiencing any of the problems listed in the bugfix changelog, it's always good to remember the age old saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Jailbreakers note: Jailbreakers have not confirmed whether Apple have changed any of the underlying structure or not, what does this mean you ask? Well, a jailbreak for 4.3.1 might be much further away than a jailbreak for 4.3 - but, if you aren't jailbroken, then by all means - go forth and grab it from
the most amazing program in the world, iTunes.
Ah, GPU wars - don't you just love them? NVIDIA have recently released their explosive GeForce GTX 590 dual-GPU video card and stated that it was the "World's Fastest Graphics Card" yet, never proved this with an industry-standard benchmark like 3DMark 11.
AMD have called them out on this and directly asked NVIDIA to "prove it, don't just say it". Dem be fighting words meester. Fisty Cuffs, go! AMD also listed a bunch of review sites pointing to their HD 6990 beating out the GTX 590. Salt, wound, hurt.
