Here’s a great way to get yourself banned from Xbox Live

Remember that little tip I gave you yesterday about being able to download Grand Theft Auto IV? What was the one thing I told you not to do if you still chose to download and play it?

Get your very own Mii statue

I love my Wii, and have been playing it more than my 360 since I got it. However, one thing that I've never really gotten into is designing my Mii. Sure, I made one, but I spent something like five minutes on it and pretty much just left it at that.

Could Palm revive the Foleo as another Eee rival?

When Palm sent out invitations for users to trial an "innovative new product" earlier on this week, the criteria that participants must be heavy smartphone and email users, have a WiFi router and an account with Sprint led many to presume that it referred to the Treo 800w.  That handset - long in the making, and believed to be hitting Sprint in July - is expected to have the usual full thumbboard as well as WiFi, EV-DO Rev.A and Windows Mobile 6, and it seems reasonable that Palm would be beta testing it around now.  However, just as we were all about to file the rumor away, another possibility was suggested: could Palm be reviving the Foleo?

Archos 605 PMP gets GPS add-on with traffic alerts

Further blurring the line between their high-end PMP range and a PDA, Archos have announced a GPS add-on for the 605 WiFi media player.

MSI Wind stars in hands-on video

MSI's Wind ultraportable was only announced last month, but already Uruninceleme have had one in for a video fondle. Unfortunately for those not lucky enough to speak Turkish, the conversation between the two presenters is somewhat difficult to decipher; however, the Wind itself speaks in the international language of "cool gadget" and so we can all enjoy the view. While they seem to be playing with the 10-inch version, MSI will also be making a Wind with an 8.9-inch display.
