• Duke Nukem Forever "sometime this year," plus original on XBLA


    We have a date! Well, not a date, but at least a release year. 3D Realms President Scott Miller said they were “talking to Microsoft about getting a release slot sometime this year.” Let’s hope DNF doesn’t pull a Daikatana. If you can’t wait for the next generation, maybe you’ll settle for the last. It’s popping onto XBLA with a co-op mode (score). I… Read More

  • The Hip Office: Hip isn't an adjective here, people

    [photopress:stretch.jpg,full,center] Monotonous sitting in front of computer provokes serious health damages! Yes it does! Or so says, er, somebody at HK-Ergonomics, the pastel-colored manufacturer of this innovative belt-like laptop stand thing. It doesn’t look very stable, but we like the overall idea. I’m going to try to get one of these for NAB, so I can walk and blog at the… Read More

  • Rumor: Is Google About to Buy Bebo For $1 Billion To $1.5 Billion? Or Will it Be MySpace?

    An unconfirmed rumor has surfaced that either Google or MySpace is about to announce a big $1 billion to $1.5 billion acquisition in the social space. After checking around with multiple industry sources, we’ve concluded that if the rumor is true the most likely candidate is Bebo, which we are told is raising capital and simultaneously shopping itself around again. We put the chances… Read More

  • Bungie sorta hints at its next non-Halo game: 'totally different,' 'pretty cool'

    [photopress:bungiewhat_1.jpg,full,right] Microsoft and Bungie separated last October, but there had been no indication what kind of non-Halo game (or games) Bungie planned to develop. Today that’s still sorta the case, but we do know that the game will be “pretty cool.” In the latest Bungie podcast, company staff said that the new game will be something “totaly… Read More

  • Two Sony Ericsson handsets leaked

    Days ahead of MWC come more leaks and this time from the Sony Ericsson camp. Codenamed Alona and Bei Bei, the former looks to stir things up with a radical design. Ok, maybe not so radical, but it’s pretty cool looking for a clamshell from SE. The outer cover features touch sensitive controls music controls and display that give you all the normal vitals you’d find on any other device. Read More

  • The random endorsement: The New York Football Giants

    [photopress:endorse020608.jpg,full,right] Watch this video first. Listen to the words, man. /me Clears throat.
    /sings 18 and 0 (18 and 0) one more to go (one more to go), SuperBoooooooooowl. Patriots fans no doubt heard that song a few times between when they beat the Chargers to clinch the AFC and Sunday night. Too bad they’ll now have sing, 18 and one (18 and one) what have we done… Read More

  • Mario Kart Wii features update


    Awesome. Mario Kart on the SNES is, as far as I am concerned, one of the best games ever made. I still play it regularly even though the computer players cheat flagrantly. Since then it has appeared in various forms, though perhaps none as hotly anticipated as the Wii version. It’s just hitting on the other side of the water (the Japanese side) so we’ll be hearing more about it soon. Read More

  • Claim: Percolators make better coffee than drip machines, should be celebrated

    [photopress:percolater.jpg,full,center] When one of my older relatives gave me a percolator as a gift last summer, I literally had to Google what the hell the thing was. You put the water where? Does the coffee go in out or, do you have to shake it all about? If so, for how long? I eventually got the hang of it, but then instantly switched over to a regular, drip machine a few weeks later.

  • Sneak a download of the NGage platform for S60, guv'nuh?

    [photopress:nokia_n95_8gb.JPG,full,center] Remember the NGage? For those who don’t, it was Nokia’s (yes, we know it’s Nokia day today) idea to combine a Gameboy-like device and a cellphone. While the concept was sound, the final product sucked. Badly. It was expensive, underpowered, hard to use, and ugly as sin. But NGage is back, this time as a game platform for… Read More

    [photopress:TMobile_HotSpot.jpg,full,center] We’ve heard of tools like this for Windows Mobile, in fact we used one to liveblog the Bill Gates keynote at CES, but this is the first time a Wi-Fi sharing app for smartphones has hit a Symbian phone. If your S60-powered phone has Wi-Fi, you can now use it as an access point for all of your Wi-Fi-epuipped devices. Install the app and run it… Read More

  • Asus saving the world again with energy-efficient mobo

    Asus has some green ambitions. Last time it was bamboo laptops, now it’s power-saving mobos. Their P5E3 Premium mobo has all the features you’d want in a good motherboard (I can’t see how many SATA slots though) in addition to a new hardware power monitor that is said to increase energy efficiency by up to 50% and reduce consumption by up to 80%. Big claims for an as-yet… Read More

    [photopress:n82_tar.jpg,full,center] For those who like their phones black and sexy and powerful, there’s the Nokia N82. It’s been rumored for awhile, but the latest addition to the N-series is real, it’s shipping soon, and is badass. The Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G GSM phone is running S60 over Symbian, has a 5-Megapixel camera with Xenon flash, and looks amazing. $630, but good to go… Read More

  • Something about discounts on MacBook Airs, we think

    I am a writer. I write in the English language, one that I can also speak quite well. In summarizing this post on the UK’s T3, which I believe is about a way to get a discount MacBook Air if you sign up for a year’s worth of broadband, I’m lost. A tasty quote: The discount is £250, so 100 nicker less than it could be, but it does bring Apple’s size zero newbie down… Read More

  • Review: Razer/THX Mako 2.1

    If there’s one single gadget out there that I’ve been longing to review this year it’s the 2.1 speaker system from Razer. We caught a glimpse of them at last year’s CES and then there were teases that it would be out towards the end of last year, which never came about, but we’re getting much closer. You can pre-order now on Amazon and I’ve heard whispers… Read More
