Plants Vs. Zombies 2 Will Be Released July 18 [Watch Trailer]

PopCap sure has been keeping the suspense going for Plants Vs. Zombies 2. It was announced that the game was to be launched this Summer, but PopCap has Monday finally revealed a release date indicating that the game will be released worldwide in the App Store on July 18th.

What’s more is that unlike the game’s predecessor, Plants Vs. Zombies 2 will be a free download in the App Store and offer in-app purchases. This officially gives Plants Vs. Zombies 2 the “fremium” label.


The new iPad 2 and the old iPad 2 are different?? YES!!

When Apple’s third-generation iPad was released in March, the company kept the iPad 2 as a more affordable option. It turns out, however, that the iPad 2 sold prior to March 16 and those sold after the launch of the third-generation iPad differ in more ways than the $100 price drop.

As reported by sites like AnandTech, the folks at Chipworks discovered that Apple is using a different production process for its A5 processors. The company switched from using Samsung Semiconductor’s 45nm process to Samsung’s 32nm process, reducing the size of the chip by 41 percent.

The new iPad 2, referring to the $399 iPad, features a new 32nm process for the chip design. This made the chip nearly half the size, and made room for Apple to increase the size of the internals. However, the big gain in switching from 45nm to 32nm is speed and efficiency. Though the 32nm chip found in the new iPad 2 is smaller, and more efficient, it still scores similarly to the 45nm chip found in the old iPad 2. Scoring roughly the same in web browsing, graphics, and the Geekbench tests, which were conducted by Macworld. Many people won’t even notice a speed difference in day to day usage, even with the new chip design.

They also put the devices through battery tests, but the difference was so minuscule, that it didn’t really prove that the new chip was more power efficient. In some of the speed tests, the old iPad’s 45nm design beat the new design.
