Nintendo recently announced its newest gaming system, the Wii U at this years E3 game expo. While no release date was given, Nintendo showed off working hardware including a tablet-like touch-screen controller. By utilizing the controller for heads-up display, Nintendo could seriously change the way we game. In other news, Apple’s newest mobile operating system iOS 5 is snubbing Facebook and integrating itself with Twitter. With a single sign-in, Twitter will integrate with multiple Apple applications, allowing users to send tweets and share links on the fly. The lack of Facebook integration is Apple’s way of ensuring it controls the user experience. And finally, if you recently experienced problems using Skype, the company has been battling a significant service outage. Skype has had two major outages in just one month after being acquired by Microsoft. The $8.5 billion price tag doesn’t mean that Microsoft won’t have work to do.
