Brazilian PlayStation 4 will launch at 1850 USD!

Sony annouced earlier today the launch price of its PlayStation 4 in Brazil: 3,999 brazilian reais. Converted to US dollars that is the equivalent to 1850 USD. You read right: almost 2 thousand american dollars for something that will sell at 399 USD back in the United States. Sony defends its price and blames brazilian heavy taxation.

Microsoft's Xbox One can already be pre-ordered for 2,199 BRL (1,018 USD). A much friendlier price for something that costs 499 USD in the upper part of the american continent.

Who's (not) buying a new console for Xmas?

Haze Craze (Updated!)

Well, seems that every tech blog is talking about Haze today. And what is it all about? A simple, minimalistic weather app with touch interactions and very smart, colorful, design. Are there any better apps around? Of course. But for 99 cents you gotta give it a go. It's simple, it's nice, it's trendy.

By the way, if you wanna unlock all the themes Haze offers, here are a few tips:

1) Lemon theme - simply share the weather stats

2) Melon theme - Click on Rate in the Settings and follow the steps to rate the app on iTunes.

3) Goldfish theme - Click on Gift in the Settings and follow a few steps as you'd normally to gift the app to someone on iTunes. You don't have to actually spend your credit/money. A few steps will be enough.

4) Moonlight theme - check the weather after midnight. You can change your GMT on iPhone settings to do the trick without having to wait

5) Vintage theme - I still have this one missing. Any advice?

Update: To unlock the Vintage theme you have to use Haze for 7 days. (If you don't want to wait for 7 days, you can play with your iPhone Date and Time settings, changing the date for 7 days ahead and then opening Haze).

See below how the screen looks after you unlock all the themes:
