Comcast has always been a renowned name, as far as services pertaining to cable TVs, internet and telephonic systems are concerned. Comcast is struggling for several years with several players in the same sector like, Charter Communications, Cox Communications and Time Warner Cable, to carve a niche for itself.
Comcast provides flexible plans as far as internet comes into consideration. The internet plans starts from 20 Mbps for $29.99 per month to a high-speed of 105 Mbps for a whooping sum of $199.95 per month. Another set of service, from which you can draw benefit while being associated with Comcast is its TV service.
It provides digitized version of cable TV with which you can get 80+ channels for a paltry $29.99 per month, or you can also acquire the benefits of 160+ channels (high-definition optional) for $39.99 per month and the last plan offers you a pool of 200 channels for a price of $84.99 per month.
Lastly, the service which is been provided by Comcast is the telephonic service. It provides the caller with a facility of making unlimited calls to regions- US, Canada and Puerto Rico for an amount of $29.99 per month. In addition, you will be offered several other services like call clarity, readable voicemail and other exciting features.
Comcast has integrated its service- internet, cable TV and voice under a single umbrella name- XFINITY. Other Comcast services available in the US only and do not have a global range. It is headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US, the telecom service provider has entrenched itself in the US telecom market. The third largest telecom provider also provides combo packages, which includes all the three services- cable TV, internet and voice at an affordable price range. In the coming years the levels of competition will be fierce and it will be a question as to what levels of quality of the services will be provided to the users pertaining to the telecom sectors.

We all know that even the hardcore gamers need little help sometimes. There are some games which are very easy to complete but some are so tough that you may never see the end credits.

Granted, the first Bubble Bobble game on the DS was nothing short of a disaster, but like real life itself, everybody deserves a second chance. Rising Star Games has taken the task of developing a spanking new Bubble Bobble game for the DS. This title will be published by Taito, and we are keeping our fingers crossed that this version will offer something better and more engaging than the previous outing. Titled Bubble Bobble Double Shot, you can expect this game to feature the original, frantic gameplay that was so engaging along with upgraded graphics and the ability for players to switch between characters on-the-fly to combat color-coded enemies. Multiplayer gaming involves just local wireless play, with no final word on whether WiFi Connect-enabled gameplay is available. Source: DS-x2
Those with a weak brain for math and find Brain Age extremely challenging, there is still hope for you yet with this Japanese title called Math Trainer. It offers a whole gamut of (fun) mathematical problems to solve, from the basic addition and subtraction to the more complex multiplication and division. Needless to say, problems get trickier the further the player progresses in the game. Somehow, Nintendo DS titles that involve a whole lot of brain power and touching seem to lean more toward the smartphone variety. Source: DS Fanboy
SimCity is one of the unwavering icons of gaming, sparking off a whole genre of simulation type games back in the early 90s that had gamers glued to their computers for days on end without showering or eating. Cellphone technology has advanced to such a level that they are actually mini mobile computers that pack more than enough power to run the great classic SimCity without running into any snags whatsoever. Developed by EA Mobile, this miniaturized version follows the same story arc, where you are the prima donna city planner who plans to build a bustling metropolis from nothing. What is the last frontier for SimCity? Pen and paper? Source: Mobile Mag
They say that third time’s the charm, and Nokia would probably bank on that adage being true after the colossal failure of its NGage and NGage QD gaming phones that were nothing but a novelty. Their next generation cellphones will be powerful enough to compete with the likes of the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS, and their commitment has been underlined with the presence of established publishers and developers who have already signed up with Nokia to develop content for the current N-Series phones and S60 software. If that is Warcraft III I see in the concept photo, then consider me sold. Who cares if I’ve got constipation? That means I have more time to squeeze in for gaming the next time I attempt to take a dump. Source: Esato
Can’t get enough of Trauma Center: Under the Knife? Fret not, there is more hospital action coming your way with Lifesigns: Hospital Affairs for the Nintendo DS platform. As usual, you play the protagonist who has the task of saving lives inside Lifesigns. The difference of a single second could mean life or death for you, so make sure you steady those jittery hands when performing a delicate surgery procedure. You begin as an assistant doctor who talks and operates his way to the top of the food chain, touching lives in the process. In fact, the entire thing works out pretty much like one of those Japanese soap operas you catch on TV. The gameplay claims to be open-ended without any linearity, but that remains to be seen. All I know is I’m stoked with the idea of the possibilities offered in Lifesigns. You can expect to see this title hit stores sometime in Q1 2007. Source: DS-X2
The Nintendo DS’ microphone function is underutilized in games, and I always was a little bit apprehensive of it as I wouldn’t want to get spit all over my precious DS during frantic gameplay moments. Apparently Undercover: Dual Motives will make use of the microphone in some of the more endearing moments within. Imagine blowing paper darts at him literally by aiming with the stylus on one hand and puffing away. Anyone who sees you doing that in public will probably get turned off and complain about how the DS teaches people to be rude, but they just don’t get the point do they? No idea on when Undercover: Dual Motives will be released, but the screenshots on the right (not sure if it is actual gameplay or not) look pretty sweet. Source: DS Fanboy
The Pocket PC platform is often maligned and overlooked when it comes to quality games, but Arvale: Short Tales is a RPG that can be considered as an epic on your communication device. Being the third game in this instalment, you can pick up Arvale: Short Tales for $19.95 in a try or buy offer. Expect to clock up anywhere between 10 to 20 hours with this game, and with over 30 locations and hundred of detailed maps, characters, and a noteworthy bestiary, you would have a great time completing all four stories inside. We’re nto sure what a ninja with a pirate’s eye-patch is doing inside the game though, although the sorceress must’ve done some great magic to achieve those bulbuous breasts. Source: Pocket Gamer
I guess the DS platform is really ideal to bring old PC classics as it features the perfect input format. Electronic Arts has announced that they will be porting over the Theme Park simulation for the DS, and word on the street is a Japanese version will be released next March. Several German sources have cited a similar launch date for Europe, but do take all that news with a pinch of salt. EA might be in the bad books of most people for producing sub-par games, but it is a good thing to see younger gamers pick up classics in this day and age of High Definition gaming. Source: DS-x2
