How man hours did you play Tetris on your green-screened Game Boy? I played for a long time, until I passed level 12 and it was just too much for me. Now, after more than 26 years, Tetris has been turned into a board game.
This new cell phone from Japan’s Softbank and ZTE is more of a security device than anything else. It’s kind of like a one-button panic alarm that’s wired into a cell phone. Apparently it’s designed for preschoolers and seniors.
I’m pretty sure this is the first time that I’m going to describe Batman as cute, but what else can I say? This plush Batman is cute. There. Robin’s gained a bit of weight though. I’ll call him Double-Chin Robin.
Has Angry Birds jumped the shark yet? Given the fact that I still haven’t gotten 3 gold stars on every level and haven’t found all the golden eggs, I’m going to say no. Still, you’ve got to wonder if a game has gone too far when it starts to find its way into our stomachs.
I will readily admit that I like to play games on my iPhone. I also admit that I will steer away from any game that doesn’t use normal touch and gesture control. If I have to use those fake on-screen joysticks I won’t play the game.
I am in the middle of putting together an epic home theater in my game room that I have finally wrestled from the control of the wife and kids. I am putting in a projector and a freakin’ 10-foot wide screen of glorious gaming goodness.
All I have to do is write the name iFixit and most geeks will know that we are about to take a gander at the juicy insides of one gadget or another. iFixit has now taken the new iPhone 4 on Verizon and ripped it apart.
I know that this isn’t really supposed to have anything to do with Halloween or scaring people, but what the heck guys, this robot baby head is really disturbing, especially when the guy starts moving the head around and the baby comes alive.
Dropping a DSLR has never been an issue for me, but there are some places where those cameras just won’t cut it: you need something more rugged. That’s where Pentax’s Optio comes into play and I have to say that it looks pretty sturdy.
Kyocera isn’t exactly well known in the smartphone industry. Until today that is, with the unveiling of the Echo, which has two 3.5″ touchscreens that can be used as a single 4.7″ screen with an equivalent resolution of 960 x 800.
Redditor Torontoitguy shared a console typing software that he invented. He’s calling it the Circboard, and it’s easy to see why. Letters and symbols are mapped to each of the four face buttons on a controller, while switching between the circles are done using the left analog stick.
While I was digging around looking at that awesome metal AT-AT sculpture by artist Sage Werbock (aka “The Great Nippulini” – don’t ask), I stumbled onto an even bigger, badder metal creation over on his Etsy shop…
Who says Pac-Man and Blinky need to be confined to the pixel-bound walls of their maze?
These fun wind-up Pac-Man racers are the perfect desktop toy for the retro gamer geek. No quarters or batteries are required to play with these authentic Namco-endorsed wind-ups.
I can’t recall ever writing about a watch that wasn’t designed for those of us that can see normally. We look at lots of watches here, and no matter the price or how complex they are to read, the vast majority of them are designed for the sighted.
