  • Wii Outsells PS3 and Xbox 360 in February, Must Mean It's The Best

    The Nintendo Wii outsold both the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360 during the month of February. Nintendo sold 335,000 Wiis to Microsoft’s 228,000 and to Sony’s 127,000. Obviously this means that the Nintendo Wii is the bestest console of them all. And with games like NiGHTS coming out, I really can’t see how the Wii will lose the next-gen war.

  • Kyocera MARBL Released On Virgin Mobile

    Nothing too exciting here, but certainly worth mentioning. Today Virgin Mobile released yet another inexpensive phone for the pre-paid fanboys. The Kyocera MARBL is just a basic flip-phone with literally no exciting features. Camera? Nope. Bluetooth? Sorry. MP3 Player? Not a chance. Seems as if the best feature on this phone is either the design or polyphonic ringtones, the latter of which… Read More

  • Korea Sky Concept Cellphone: Why Are Real Cellphones So Ugly?

    The thing about concept phones is that they so often look so much better than actual cellphones it’s almost depressing.
