Free Guitar Hero clone really rocks

Filed under
Gaming

Music fans and video gamers alike can rock out – for free – with a clever Guitar Hero clone downloadable for your Windows, Mac or Linux-based PC.

Called Frets on Fire (http://fretsonfire. sourceforge.net/), the game works in a similar way to the bestselling console series from RedOctane – where you must play a specific note at the correct time in order to rack up points – but now you're holding your computer keyboard like a guitar, pressing the F1 through F5 keys and "strumming" with the Enter button.

OK, so the songs are from indie artists instead of classic rock hits, but Frets on Fire is a fun rhythm game with multiple levels of difficulty, downloadable tracks and the option to create your own songs. And hey, free is free.

Alcatel built a 17-inch Android tablet for your kitchen

Alcatel wants its new 17.3-inch Xess tablet to be a multipurpose hub for the family, providing recipes in the kitchen, films in the living room, and a digital whiteboard for to-do lists and upcoming events. However, the severely underpowered Android device doesn't seem to be capable of entertaining even a single individual, let alone a whole household. The device has a fine 1920 x 1080 display, but an unspecified 1.5 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM mean that even swiping through pages of apps becomes a chore as icons are dragged slowly across the screen. Alcatel has stressed that the Xess is still a prototype at this stage, but it's in need of some serious upgrades. Read more
