The Chain Mail Guitar Hero Strap

The Chain Mail Guitar Hero Strap

Almost all Guitar Hero or Rock Band fans typically likes to customize and make their plastic guitars their own. Be it with a guitar strap or an entire sheet of stickers and occasionally one of the custom made guitars that most of us just have drool over in pictures posted on the net. If you like the guitar strap route, nothing says hardcore rocker like chain mail.

Although this strap might not fit as well when you're doing a bit of the classic rock, it'd fit in perfect with a bit of metal. The down side is for those that like to play with groups of friends and typically pass their guitar around, the strap isn't adjustable. You have to tell the maker the measurements you prefer and he'll make it to your specification.

It is made from 16 gauge Aluminum rings, which apparently doesn't tarnish. If you would like you can get a slightly more personalized strap and have a specific color of rings put on. The strap is currently being sold for $33

Fallout 3 will feature over 200 possible endings

Fallout 3 will feature over 200 possible endings

When you play a game, you expect there to be one ending. (No, throwing your controller through the TV in frustration does not count as an ending). Sure, some games do give you a chance to experience different endings based on the choices you make throughout the game. However, even in these games you're limited to a few at best. Not Fallout 3 though, it's got more ways to finish than you can shake a stick at.

According to a recent podcast with Bethesda's Todd Howard, there are more than 200 possible endings. No, that's not a typo, there really are two zeros on that number.

NTT DoCoMo plans on removing high-end functionality of its Mobile OS to accomodate international market

Sometimes less is more. NTT DoCoMo decided to strip down its mobile OS to allow manufacturers to develop in conjunction to international market needs. Many phone manufacturers such as Mitsubishi has pulled out from Japanese market due to over crowded players – and to focus on international market instead. By doing this, NTT DoCoMo allows manufacturers to export low cost handsets to exploding market such as China and Thailand. Many analysts see this trend will be followed by NTT DoCoMo’s competitors.
