Civ 5 – Conquest of the World by 350 BC (76/140)

Playing as Alexander you can get 2 achievements:

75. The Man Who Would Be King. Beat the game on any difficulty setting as Alexander.

76. Conquest of the World. As Alexander, defeat every known player by 350 BC.

It’s a bit harder than I thought, to get it I setup a game duel size map – Pangaea. Basically I started to look where my opponent was settled, then I created 5 cities as soon as possible, last one was found as close as possible to the other nation’s capital.

Once I got iron I upgraded at least 6 warriors that were fortified in the border, these 6 plus an archer were able to take all 3 cities before 350 and unlock the achievement.

Civ 5 – Vini, Vidi, Vici (74/140)

73. Vini, Vidi, Vici  achievement: Beat the game on any difficulty setting as Caesar

74. All Roads Lead to Rome. Build a road with a Roman Legion.

I did not know Legion unit was able to build roads, not only workers.

With this  now I have 53%.

So far…

Most rare: Macho Picchu. Win the New World Scenario as the Incas.  Only 0.1% all players.

iPad 2 or the new Mac Book Air 2011

Looking to the set of pictures posted at Apple site for the coming new operating system Mac OS X Lion I can speculate (guess) that the new iPad 2 will be a new Mac Book Air with touch screen and a removable keyboard… or even better a wireless keyboard.

Or the new iPad 2 will be in the same case as the existing iPad but that will run the new Mac OS X Lion instead of iOS (a big wow anyway).

In any case, think that Apple is going to make another hit with the new operating system Mac Book Air/iPad 2



From the attached image, if you remove the keyboard and change the name of Mac Book Air for iPad 2 you will have a very close idea of what I mean.

I already added one to my wish list.
