Stuff Office Cat’s diary – 31/10/12

With YouView updates out and the Nokia Lumia 920 incoming – Office Cat is a happy feline

YouView update

The set-top box that packs video on demand services into your EPG has  just been updated. YouView's Humax DTR T1000 set-top box will now let you pause and rewind live TV, skip in 60-second bursts, hide the red button prompt – and the whole thing will now startup quicker too. Office Cat says now, more than ever, the DTR T1000 is a revolutionary TV device.

Get your blade on

Assassin's Creed III picked up a deserved 5 stars in Stuff's review and if you liked what you saw then rejoice, for it's out today. Grab your copy, stock up on snacks and start practicing your tomahawk throws. It's going to be a fun ride.

Nokia Lumia 920

To app or not to app, that is the question…

As a refined feline, Office Cat naturally knows the works of William Shakespeare inside out. Fortunately for those who are baffled by the Bard, the Cambridge University Press has launched its Romeo and Juliet: Explore Shakespeare app. With Kate Beckinsale providing the vocals for Juliet, over 100 photographs and tonnes of extra information, translations and explanations on hand, it's the ideal app for thespians, students and casual fans alike. There's also a Macbeth: Explore Shakespeare app available now, and further Shakespeare plays including Hamlet in the pipeline.
