NEW YORK — The American Bible Society's' stated mission is to engage people "with the life-changing message of God's Word," and the 200-year-old Christian nonprofit appears to be pulling out all the stops to stick to that mission. Its latest form of outreach is a new interactive "immersive experience" — a 3D game, dubbed "Dive In" that is supposed to turn players' minds to the condition of their heart.
Dive In was unveiled less than a month ago outside of the American Bible Society's New York City headquarters, not far from the heavily-trafficked Christopher Columbus Circle.
The game uses a 3D camera that incorporates gesture tracking. Once a player steps up to bat, their body movements are tracked and they can then control their avatar's movements by leaning left or right, flapping their arms or waving as they swim through an imaginary water world. more >>

It has been a long time since we have heard any insider's info about the purported Apple Mac Mini 2014. Fans were somehow expecting an update about the smallest Mac desktop from last year's Apple media event but it passed without it being mentioned.
The following months, a Belgian website mentioned another launching date, which was February 2014, still no Mac Mini materialized.
Needless to mention, even those who were present at Apple's 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference weren't able to grasp news about the compact desktop device. more >>
The iPad Mini 3 could see a release sometime before the holiday season. Speculations place the release in October since the last generations of the iPad Mini were released in the same month year after year, so the trend may actually carry over with the third iPad Mini.
KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo, however, thinks that the iPad Mini 3 would see a release a month earlier, probably alongside the iPhone 6 release.
There are speculations that the iPad Mini 3 won't be called like so when its' released, instead will be called iPad Mini with Retina Display. One other speculation is that it will be called the iPad Mini Air, following the naming convention that Apple follows with most of its product lines but it will be highly unlikely. more >>
Apple's highly anticipated iPhone 6 should be launched in September, with a release date late that month or early October 2014, according to widely circulating rumors over recent weeks. However, in some new rumors circulating online, it has also been suggested that the release date is still not 100 percent firm yet, and with the release still shaky, the Cupertino tech giant may still push the date back without much notice.
The next generation iPhone is one of the most important releases in Apple's history. Over recent years some have been disappointed with the iPhone releases, with most being simple updates rather than major overhauls of the device. With Samsung, HTC and other leading mobile phone makers gaining increasing popularity with larger screens, many analysts believe Apple must give fans something more this time around.
Some say the next-generation iPhone will need to be a tad bigger if it wants to compete with the 5-inchers like Samsung's Galaxy S5 or LG's G3. more >>
