Panasonic Re-introduces a better 103-inch 1080p Plasma

We thought the big Plasma outfit from Panasonic was for show, no go. Apparently, they’ve proved us wrong by publishing the number of 103-inch Plasma unit sold in a Japanese commercial and kept pushing the sizes up to 150-inch at CES 2008. The Big-Plasma-Biz must be good for Panasonic. They have reintroduced the same 103-inch with few upgrades for commercial line and wealthy individual looks to impress their clients or neighbors.

Wall-E GameCube looks so innocent

Personally, I am sick and tired of seeing the stupid commercial for the cartoon featuring this little robot, but I do like the robot. Maybe not quite enough to gather up my GameCube, some Plexiglas, tubes, rods, plastic, metal, and acrylic paint and think to myself “hmm, this seems like a good idea”.

Waveboat makes your Waverunner a boat

‘They say money doesn't buy happiness. That phrase should end with "just kidding".’ For those of you who recognize that quote, you have an idea where this is going, but lets start with the $8000 price tag for this Jet Ski accessory.

Planex’s HDMI Cable is thinner than Wireworld

Conventional HDMI cable is stiff and heavy, lacks flexibility to get around tight spaces. One looks for an alternate cable solution is either getting a much expensive wireless module or a flat HDMI like Wireworld world’s thinnest Island HDMI cable. If the Island’s 3mm profile is not thin enough, Planex Japan has another measured at a mere 2mm in thickness.

No 4-player co-op for Lego Indiana Jones after all

Earlier this week when I reported that the upcoming Lego Indiana Jones title would support 4-player co-op, I admit that I had my doubts. I really couldn't picture myself trying to coordinate my actions with three other people in my living room throughout the entire game. Apparently there's no need to worry  about it, as the game will only be 2-player.
