The USS Enterprise held a pivotal place on the turbulent seas of war, engaging in some of the fiercest, multi-front battles ever witnessed in modern combat. This series will follow the Enterprise and its men from the start of the war through to the last battle. As the war went on, the ship changed, the men changed, and the battles were never the same.
In this major battle, Confederate Brevet Brigadier General Albert Sidney Johnston was the highest ranking officer killed in the American Civil War. He was most likely hit by his own troops. His mortal leg wound was from the rear. Despite this calamitous setback, P.G.T. Beauregard was so confident after the first day of the battle, that he sent word back to Richmond that the Confederate forces had a complete and undisputed victory.
In terms of improvements over the Xbox version, of which this is otherwise a fairly straight port, EA said that medals to advance in rank could now be earned offline or online, the "hot-swap" single-player feature that allows you to switch between character perspectives now worked whether you could see the other character or not, and AI had been improved so that shotgun-toting enemies couldn't be taken down easily with a pistol and enemies wouldn't blindly charge into battle.
Steve Jobs did not live to see his victory in a major mobile battle that started in 2007 with the introduction of the iPhone. He made it clear from the start that Apple Inc. mobile devices would not render Flash, the programming language from Adobe Systems Inc., because, he said, it did not perform well and drained batteries. So when a consumer on an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad shopped an e-commerce site with Flash, all he would see in place of a Flash video or animation is an empty box.
Today the battle is over. Adobe quietly announced in a blog post that it has ceased work on the mobile version of Flash, and instead will focus its mobile efforts on HTML5, the up-and-coming web programming language whose power to create rich, multimedia experiences on mobile sites and apps is light years ahead of its HTML4 predecessor, mobile technology experts say. HTML5 generally can do what Flash can, and, unlike Flash, it will render on Apple devices.
The 360 augmented reality experience can be done anywhere. Those who download the app can scan any flat surface and a map appears showing the contours of the Cool Spring Battlefield, which is located in Clarke County off Va. 7.
