I wish i had this phone


Is the ROKR dead already? Not in the US at least as this phone will not yet be available in the US... but for those people in Europe and Asia, you guys are lucky bastards.

This thing boasts 470MB internal memory and support for a Memory Stick duo up to 2GB... that's way more than the iTunes phone. But that's just where it starts. It has videophone capabilities, a 2megapixel camera, video playback at 30 frames/second, FM radio, bells and whistles galore, and its a good looking phone.

and for all you peeps who still need to iTunes in their life you can use iTunes with your Walkman phone!

The Lomo Horizon


Lomo's special edition of the old skool 120 degree field of view camera. This panoramic camera is being reintroduced by lomo in only the style tht lomo can do. This thing takes the dopest pictures. Shoot straight on, and its a perfect level panoramic, shoot it with a little angle up or down, and it takes on a whole different character. Images distort and curve and that's when you can really see the unique features that a 120 degree scan photo has.

It's the Warriors....

Just wanted to give a heads up to those who are looking forward to The Warriors videogame. It's been a while since I first learned about it at E3, but the game is finally due out tomorrow 10/18. The film-based videogame has come a long way, but looks very promising for those wanting to bash the living death out of rival gangs. I've seen a few video clips of the game and I have to admit the violence is right where it belongs. Rockstar has utilized a combat system that will allow players to bash other gang members into walls and smash their faces into cold hard concrete. Not only does the fighting system seem multilayered, but there is also a 2 player co-op mode that will allow a second player to jump in and out of games whenever they feel like. Alongside the story mode that is true to the film, there will be additional gameplay modes.
Seems like Rockstar has put a lot of time and effort into making this a worthy game to pick up. Go to the Rockstar's The Warriors site for more info.

Sony upsets Christians with Ad

In the console wars raging between Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, taking aim at a competitor not only makes for good gossip and quotes, but also it's expected. No one will blink an eye if Microsoft irks Sony or if Nintendo brushes off Microsoft. But regardless of one's religious preferences, it's probably not a good idea to incense the big man upstairs or the house He built. Read full story here.
