Recently, my little sister and I were talking about the progression of gaming systems. This year I got an Atari, from my little sister, it’s not a full system, just a mini version of the game that comes with breakout and pong, but I was very excited to have it and she thought I was nuts. She had no idea what it was, nor did she remember ever playing the original Nintendo or Sega. This made me feel both sad and old. Today, however, I saw the Gen-X Dual Station and I feel there is hope.
I was skeptical at first based on the images taken from GearLive. Thank goodness for this video, I’m now a firm believer that the iPhone firmware 1.1.3 is for real. Check it out for yourself.
Spending nearly $2,500 for a set of washer and dryer is serious business. While I love LG mobiles, the consumer electronic department is leaving an extremely nasty taste in my mouth.
We bought their top of the line washer WM2487WHM and dryer at Best Buy right before Christmas and they were delivered and setup yesterday. On the day of delivery, the washer would just spin and spin and spin some more without dispensing any water. So I called Best Buy in Tempe, AZ and the manager was kind enough to rush out another unit today. So I thought, way cool - BIG kudos to Best Buy for going above and beyond the call of duty.
Not wanting to get left behind by Acer and Fujitsu-Siemens, Sony is preparing to launch its Penryn based laptops. The VAIO AR7, FZ4, and SZ7 will feature Intel’s new Core 2 Duo mobile that uses 45nm-manufacturing process.

Well, I don’t know if we’ll rock the show, but I’ve been playing Rock Band for a few hours now so that’s all that was in my head. But we will be at the show, the lot of us are arriving on the 4th, that’s more or less going to be a set up and acclimation day, and then the coverage will begin promptly on the 5th of January with CES 08 pre-show.
Mac Rumors suspect claims from GearLive may not be real since the alleged features shown do not correlate with some earlier rumors of the upcoming 1.1.3 firmware. However, upon casually inspection, the 1.1.3 screenshots do look convincing.
The iPhone 1.1.3 firmware includes new features such as Edit Home Screen where you can rearrange icons on the home screen. You simply drag icons around with your finger. The Locate Me integration with Google Map is definitely a welcome feature.
