The hideously pink PSP promotes a PC game

Marketing certain games and the way it is done sometimes blows my mind, for example this painfully pink PSP. That obnoxious image on the front, that's not promoting a PSP game, no, it's promoting a PC game.

.Mac users can now receive emails on Me.com domain

Apparently Apple has enabled the ME.COM domain name for most .Mac subscribers. Email sent to username@me.com should be arriving to username@mac.com inbox by now. Apple plans to migrate the email services from mac.com to me.com domain soon, but will also keep the mac.com as an alias domain.

I've been on the fence about Guitar Hero On Tour ever since it was first announced. I mean, just how much fun would Guitar Hero be without the guitar? Well I've had about a week to play with it, so I figured it was time for me to share my thoughts.

Diablo III announced

Diablo III announced

Diablo II definitely ranks among my list of favorite games for the PC. There's just something about hacking and slashing my way through the minions of evil that I just can't get enough of. I'm pretty sure it's only been around a year since the last time I played it.

Rock Band 2 is official!

Man, every now and then I get blindsided by an announcement that I just wasn't expecting.

Voodoo Envy 133 laptop breaks cover, poses

Talk about accurate naming.  You may not be too keen on the particular paint-job this specific example of Voodoo's Envy 133 notebook is sporting - I have to admit, insipid-orange it wouldn't be my first choice of color - but you have to agree that it's a slickly designed machine.  The images come courtesy of The Next Bench, chief hanging-out spot of Voodoo aficionados.

SOCOM PS3 Bluetooth headset revealed

This is no ordinary Bluetooth headset; while it will likely work with your cellphone or laptop, the PS3 branding should give away the fact that's it's been Sony sanctioned.  Actually, this is the headset that will accompany the Blu-ray version of SOCOM Confrontation for the console, with a couple of gaming-specific features that differentiate it from a standard hands-free kit.

The great thing about toast is that it's fast - slap bread into toaster, wait a couple of minutes, there's your toast.  Usually you don't have to worry about it taking your eye out or possibly maiming you, but that's the fire you're playing with if you're trying to toast with Freddie Yauner's "The Highest Popping Toaster In The World".

Check out the super-toaster in action after the cut!
