30-Year Quest to Find Least Number of Moves to Solve Rubik’s Cube Ends

30-Year Quest to Find Least Number of Moves to Solve Rubik’s Cube Ends
Being six when the Rubik’s Cube was hot back in the 80’s meant that each Christmas for a few years there you were guaranteed someone would get you one of the damned puzzles.

Letcool Handheld Game Emulator Offers 2-Player Goodness in Your Pocket
The latest in handheld emulators, the Letcool N350JP tries to one-up other portables by adding on something they don’t offer – a pair of external controllers for two-player fun. The compact system comes with emulators for the Super Nintendo, NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, but if it’s anything like the other portable emulators out there, you can bet there will be more emulators, and probably a Linux build for it at some point.

Modern Movies Get the Atari 2600 Treatment
Penney Design has put a really cool spin on movie poster art. It’s kind of cool to see how these movie concepts are just reduced to a few simple pixels on an Atari old video game box.

99 in 1: 99 Free (and Good) Games on the Internet

99 in 1: 99 Free (and Good) Games on the Internet
Christopher Hyde of Critical Distance was dissatisfied with a lot of the so-called “AAA games” released last year, on account of them being too expensive and …too long? While Hyde didn’t point out any specific games, and his problem with their length is puzzling to say the least,  his disappointment has led him to point out 99 free and “pretty darned spectacular” games that can be found on the Internet.

This new media player from Korea has a unique design punctuated by a bright red LED eye on its face. Why? I don’t know. Maybe so bloggers like me would write about it rather than ignore it amongst the vast sea of PMPs out there.

Everything but the Kitchen Sink: Xstreamhd to Beam 1080p Movies, Music, HDTV & Games via Satellite
I can imagine how a streaming service can send movies, HDTV, and high-quality music to homes, but games as well? Hmmm. That’s what XStreamHD claim they will provide, apparently via Care Bear satellite beams. Seriously though, XStreamHD’s got a lot on their hands, and I’m not just talking about their patent-pending technologies.
