  • Video: Six James Bonds playing poker

    Through the magic of video trickery, please observe your favorite James Bond actor playing against all the other ones you don’t like. As a bonus, seeing as though Hollywood is officially out of new movie ideas, be sure to keep a lookout for this to turn into an actual feature film called “Double-O Double Down” or some nonsense like that.

  • Sony Reader: Ian Fleming Edition

    Although I don’t get the feeling that Ian Fleming would have been a big e-book fan (he was a paperback kind of guy), that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be awesome to have a 007-themed Sony Reader. Unfortunately the Reader itself is standard issue — but the cover for it is embossed leather, and the Reader comes with two free Bond books. Read More

  • Quantum of Solace: Japan gets a cool 007 cell phone

    James Bond is a huge brand name in Japan. In cooperation with regional telcom Okinawa Cellular [JP], KDDI au (the nation’s No. 2 telecommunications company) will start selling a special edition of its W63S (CDMA 1X WIN) cell phone tomorrow. Read More

  • Thanko sells wrist watch with integrated spy camera

    Thanko, the pioneer in disruptive technology, is rolling out one innovative product after another. After announcing the teddy bear-shaped gloves yesterday, the Tokyo-based company today unveiled an analog wrist watch that features a built-in video camera. The so-called VIDEO CAMERA Analog Watch looks totally normal from the outside (weight: 80g) but is able to record 2 hours of video through… Read More

  • $400 PS3 holiday bundle spotted: 80GB system, Ratchet, Casino Royale

    Ha! Check out this Zapruder-quality photo of an upcoming PS3 holiday bundle, taken at a Best Buy. (We’re not sure if it’s Best Buy-exclusive.) If we’re to believe this to be authentic, the bundle contains an 80GB system, Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction and the Blu-ray edition of Casino Royale. (Speaking of which, anyone see Quantum of Solace? I heard mixed things.)… Read More

  • Who turns their garage into a home theater (other than these guys)?

    This is a trend, turning garages into home theaters? Might as well, right—the car business won’t be around much longer, so you’ll need to do something else with all that space. To that end, Electronic House has put together a small gallery of some of the best garage home theaters money can buy. I liked this one the best, designed by some dude named Bjorn Kristensen. For one… Read More

  • Review: Quantum of Solace (Xbox 360)

    Quick Version: Quantum of Solace offers a relatively entertaining single-player experience, but the true power of the game lies in the multiplayer modes. If you were a fan of multiplayer GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64, you’ll have a blast with this one too. Read More

  • Doodle dee doo doo doo: Omega's Quantum of Solace Bond Commercial

    While Bond used to love him some Rolex, it’s all Omega for James these days. This is the latest Quantum of Solace commercial pieced together for Omega to showcase the Seamaster 007 wears in the film. Read More

  • Sony VAIO TT Notebook: James Bond Edition

    The ultraportable 11.1-inch Sony VAIO TT notebook is available in a “James Bond 007 Edition” for $2,399. Sony’s only selling 100 of these, so if you’re really into Bond you might want to get a move on. The rig itself isn’t all that different from the standard TT series except for that little 007 logo down in the left-hand corner, a leather case, and some… Read More

  • Fascinating Bond trivia

    Who doesn’t enjoy a little James Bond trivia? The influence of the Bond films is so great that Nasa was thrilled to let 007 give the world its first view of the Space Shuttle in Moonraker  –  two years before the launch of the real thing. Jane Seymour was cast in the role of tarot priestess Solitaire in Live And Let Die after producers saw her in the BBC shipping saga The… Read More

  • It's Nintendo's fault you're not playing GoldenEye on Xbox Live Arcade

    How the game looks on the Xbox 360 Wanna know why we’re still not playing GoldenEye on Xbox Live Arcade? Blame Nintendo. It goes like this: Rare has already developed the game, and all it’s doing is waiting for the go-ahead from, yes, Nintendo. There’s four parties involved in all of this: Rare (the original developer), Nintendo (the original publisher), Microsoft (which… Read More

  • New Bond girl's death reminiscent of an oldie

    Spoiler Alert! Jill Masterson’s death in “Goldfinger” was an iconic image that all Bond fans remember and new Bond Girl Gemma Arterton’s death in the upcoming 007 movie “Quantum of Solace” draws inspiration from the classic with a different twist. She said: ‘I couldn’t move. I couldn’t see, I couldn’t breathe or hear because it went in… Read More

  • UK's MI6 loses digital camera filled with al-Qaeda info. Worse, it was sold on eBay

    Some clumsy Briton at MI6 has lost a Nikon digital camera that’s filled to the brim with all sorts of sensitive information, including info on al-Qaeda. What’s worse, not that losing the camera isn’t bad enough, but that it was sold on eBay. Yup, the missing Nikon is loaded with info on al-Qaeda, including names, finger prints and academic records. Oh, and the camera was sold… Read More

  • Sony announces cockamamie contest to help promote "Quantum of Solace"

    http://www.traileraddict.com/emb/6329 Okay, maybe it’s not completely ridiculous, but I felt like using cockamamie in a headline. Anyway, Sony launched the “Mission for a Million” contest that runs through November 7 for a chance at $1 million prize. To enter you need to complete missions to recover stolen Sony HDNA and some other shenanigans, which gives you a shot at the… Read More

  • Bond… James Bond… James Bond's watch

    If you want to be like Bond (and I think we all do, especially since he became such a cold-blooded, murderous bastard), you should probably start small. The Aston Martin is probably not going to happen (face it), nor the women, nor the guns, nor the intrigue. At least you’ve got the drinking! And, if you’re really dedicated, you might get his watch. While its guts are the same as… Read More

  • Latest Bond flick delayed for US audiences, pirates get ready!

    This doesn’t seem practical at all, but Sony has pushed back the debut of Ian Fleming’s latest James Bond film Quantum of Solace because WB’s pushed back the new Harry Potter movie to 2009. Those of us in the US won’t see Bond in action until November 14. Whereas those in the UK will enjoy Bond’s latest exploits starting on the 29th of October. Sony’s… Read More

  • James Bond will carry Sony Ericsson C902 in next flick

    Oh, come on. Lets say, for some crazy reason, Sony Ericsson was the only company that made phones in the Bond universe, nullifying all non-SE options. You really think Bond would sport a half-year-old candybar over, say, the Xperia X1 in the next movie, Quantum of Solace? Bollocks. However, the C902 gives them an advantage the unlaunched Xperia X1 does not: tie-in promotions. Timed with… Read More

  • There will be a James Bond edition Cyber-shot C902

    Sony Ericsson will release a James Bond edition Cyber-shot C902 to tie in the with release of the new, cursed Quantum of Solace movie. The phone will ship with a memory card with pre-loaded Bond content. Sounds a lot like The Dark Knight phone that just came out. Hopefully it’s not as gimmicky. As it stands, the C902 is a pretty decent phone (from what I’ve read—never used… Read More
