Digital Life: App guide is no joke
•No event is complete without its own app and the Vodafone Comedy Festival, which runs from Thursday to Sunday in Dublin, has a guide available in the iPhone and Android app stores.
Listings, maps and augmented reality, you get the drift.
Be part of the 'Elite'
•The biggest game in the world kicked off the trial phase of its new online subscription service last week.
Call of Duty Elite, which is a companion to Modern Warfare 3, will give paying customers access to a host of Call of Duty extras in the hugely popular multiplayer mode.
MW3 doesn't launch until November 3 but is already guaranteed to be the biggest-selling title of the year. Sign up for the beta to get a taste of Elite and see whether it'll be worth paying for.
New games approach
•Top publisher Ubisoft has become the latest games company to restrict second-hand sales by making online play free only for the customer who buys new.
Ubisoft follows titans such as EA, THQ and Sony in introducing a voucher system for its leading games.
