Media / Dexter
« on: August 30, 2007, 09:44:03 PM »


lol somehow i think i wont get much response from this but who cares Dexter!!!. Anyway before you ask the stupid question let me answer it No! this is not about Dexters laboratory.

Dexter is a blood splatter analyst who works for the miami pd. He went through some traumatic experiences as a child and gained a thirst for blood he had the urge to kill. His foster father being a cop told dexter he couldnt stop the urges but he could do good with it and so he trained dexter how to cover his tracks and such.

Now dexter is killing the criminals and chopping them up while still dealing with the memories of his past that had rushed back to him. Season 2 starts september 30th i believe. This is a mature show u should be a certain age before u watch it lol its alot of fun though.

Ole Talk / Viacom Says User Infringed His Own Copyright
« on: August 30, 2007, 03:35:01 PM »
This story is funny although true

Quote
Chris Knight writes "I ran for school board where I live this past fall and created some TV commercials including this one with a 'Star Wars' theme. A few months ago VH1 grabbed the commercial from YouTube and featured it in a segment of its show 'Web Junk 2.0.' Neither VH1 or its parent company Viacom told me they were doing this or asked my permission to use it, but I didn't mind it if they did. I thought that Aries Spears's commentary about it was pretty hilarious, so I posted a clip of VH1's segment on YouTube so that I could put it on my blog. I just got an e-mail from YouTube saying that the video has been pulled because Viacom is claiming that I'm violating its copyright. Viacom used my video without permission on their commercial television show, and now says that I am infringing on their copyright for showing the clip of the work that Viacom made in violation of my own copyright!"

Console Gaming Archive / Amazon.com screw up
« on: August 30, 2007, 03:29:03 PM »
Seems amazon screwed up some prices and are left with some angry customers.
Quote
Lair and Folklore were listed for 14.95 each, an incredible deal by anyone's standards. Because of this, both games shot to the top of the Amazon bestseller's list for Video Games. Some of our more paranoid commenters emailed Amazon about whether the price was correct and whether they would honour it if it turned out to be an error.

Sony PlayStation / Loco Roco ps3!
« on: August 30, 2007, 06:39:51 AM »
what can i say i guess we just have to wait till the japs get it for more info

The PlayStation 3 version of the the PSP hit Loco Roco has gotten a confirmed release date for Japan. Loco Roco: Boo Boo Cocoreccho will be hitting the PlayStation Store in less than a month, on September 21st -- no price has been announced yet. Also IGN has confirmed what we figured out last week, that you don't actually control the Loco Rocos at all, instead you control a little butterfly that leads the Rocos around the level.

The title is being billed as an action title with full online leaderboards by Famitsu so hopefully the early rumors of it being an interactive screensaver will turn out to be false. It's still a shame that they've chosen such a radical departure from the gameplay of the PSP version, but at least it's good to know that they're releasing an actual game. No American or European release dates have been announced yet.

Ole Talk / Nasa using the force :D
« on: August 30, 2007, 06:20:06 AM »


According to recent news out of NASA, the next time the Discovery crew take their ship into orbit, the "force" will be with them -- because they're taking Luke Skywalker's lightsaber along for the ride. That's right, for the film's 30th anniversary, the original lightsaber prop from the first Star Wars film is taking a ride into actual space... but that's not all. Apparently, Chewbacca will be on hand to pass the saber to officials from the Houston Space Center, and then together with Jango and Boba Fett, he will help push a plane back on the tarmac (for reasons unknown to us). But wait, there's more. When the Discovery lands in Houston after its space travels, the crew will be greeted by a group of Stormtroopers and other "Star Wars notables," including the much-loved R2-D2, who will then deliver the lightsaber to a waiting line of Hummers. Afterwards, there will be a party at the Mos Eisley Cantina, where Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes will play a set of their greatest hits.

De ja vu? hopefully this time its for real


Those mad scientists at Purdue University seem to think they have something big on their hands, with them now claiming that they're "perfecting" a new hydrogen-generating technology that they first announced earlier this year. According to the researchers, the technology could represent a "pollution-free energy source" for a whole range of applications, with it effectively generating "hydrogen on demand." To do that, the researchers added water to an alloy of aluminum and gallium, which attracts oxygen from the water, letting hydrogen loose in the process. This latest development centers on a new and improved form of the alloy that boasts a higher concentration of aluminum, which apparently allows it to react more rapidly with water to form hydrogen. While the technology is still under " intense investigation," the researchers are planning to detail their findings at the 2nd Energy Nanotechnology International Conference that goes down in Santa Clara, California on September 7th.

First of all i did not write this i just thought the dvd player looked good so dont flame me bout the xbox360 comment lol.


Quote
Chinese firm Venturer has apparently been hard at work on a budget HD DVD player, which it's claiming will be out the door and onto store shelves in the US by this holiday season. The SHD7000 should have ethernet, DVD upconversion, HDMI, but the thing only outputs to 1080i, despite supporting TrueHD audio. We don't know just how cheap the SHD7000 is going to be, but entry-level is entry-level, so we expect it'll be less expensive than your other options, save Microsoft's $180 Xbox 360 add-on.

Storage / LG launches ultrathin USB-powered external DVD burner
« on: August 30, 2007, 06:05:14 AM »

Quote
For those not quite ready to take the high-definition plunge, LG is looking to make burning those vanilla DVDs a whole lot easier whilst on the road. The uber-slim GSA-E50N (and LightScribe-equipped GSA-E50L) measure in at just 6.14- x 6.5- x 0.84-inches and weigh 0.84-pounds, come in black or white motifs, and play nice with Windows Vista. Moreover, the unit is powered completely via USB, and can burn DVD+R / RW, DVD-R / RW, and DVD-RAM discs at up to 8x speeds. Both units are slated to hit the streets soon, and while the GSA-E50N will ring up at 89 ($122), the GSA-E50L will demand an extra 10 ($14).

Mobile Phones & Gadgets / New Nokia NGage
« on: August 30, 2007, 06:01:07 AM »
Oh shiz this phone is pretty im not a fan of the engage but it does sound good.


Quote
Just as we expected, Nokia announced their totally revamped N-Gage gaming platform. An eco-sytstem now, covering software-enabled S60-based handsets, games, and a full-featured community-based service to link it all together. A new mobile gaming platform, if you will, which Nokia plans to extend beyond just Nokia devices. The service will offer tournaments, global rankings, and other events within the gaming community. Games will cost up to 10, are free to try, and can be rented over varying periods. All available starting November.

Samsung unveils hot @ss 'Bordeaux' laser printers

Quote
Damn, that's one fine @ss printer you've got sitting on your desk" isn't a phrase you hear from guests too often -- if ever -- but we'll bet francs to frites that Samsung's new ML-1631K and SCX-4501K 'Bordeaux'-branded models will draw more than their fair share of oohs and aahs sitting next to your rig.

Ok i went a little tech crazy this morning if u have read any of my other posts are my posts in the right place? i was a bit confused.

Anyway nice bluetooth stereo :)



Quote
Always one to cut cords at every corner, Parrot has taken advantage of IFA to unveil a range of new Bluetooth-equipped devices, including the stereo and speakers seen above. As you can no doubt surmise, the DS3120 Bluetooth stereo will pull tunes off your cellphone or other Bluetooth-equipped device and pump 'em through the unit's 20W speakers.

Hardware, Tweaking & Networking / Talking Cd case
« on: August 30, 2007, 05:43:18 AM »
Now this is interesting but at $5 a pop why bother



Quote
As if singing cards weren't zany enough, along comes a product that takes the idea one step further. Pre-vu's talking CD case enables customers to cram burnt home videos or any other optical disc into an enclosure that actually plays back up to sixty seconds of pre-recorded chatter. 'Course, this would probably be most effective when mailing out gifts to those you won't actually be meeting face-to-face, but for 2.50 ($5) apiece, it's not a half bad way to save time avoid writing out paragraphs of stereotypical well-wishes

In addition to offering ample amounts of storage, this one boasts both video-in and video-out ports to hook it up to your TV, letting you record and view content without ever touching a PC (a remote control is included to help in that process).

Sony PlayStation / White ps2 bundled with singstar
« on: August 30, 2007, 05:26:28 AM »
I know a few people who buy the consoles of the last gen because its cheaper and you already have a huge gaming library so u dont have to wait for new releases. This bundle pack with the ps2 and singstar is at a great price only $150 and not to mention the ps2 looks so pretty in white.


Quote
It always feels good to do a bit of catch up with Japan, even if we are a couple years behind the times. This time we're getting in on the "so 2005" ceramic white slim PS2 fad, but lucky for us in North America, Sony's tossing in an attractive SingStar bundle all for a perfectly reasonable $150. Included in the box is SingStar Pop, two mics, and of course the white PlayStation 2 and matching DualShock. You can score the bundle this November.
