Toshiba REGZA ZG1 & F1 3DTV Models Announced, Heading to Japan

RIM Lands BlackPad.com, Tablet Rumors Heat Up

It's been a little bit of time since we last heard a rumor about the (supposedly) inevitable tablet from Research In Motion, so now's as good as time as any. The company based out of Waterloo has bought a new web address, apparently making sure that they get to keep the name, "BlackPad." It's changed hands in the past, and so the current belief is that RIM paid some kind of sum to the previous owner, but those details are missing from this new report.

Motion controlled computers aren't as fresh or new as they were a year ago, but that doesn't mean that when we see cool technology being demonstrated, we still don't get a bit weak in the knees.

R4 Cards Banned in the UK, Nintendo Rejoices

If you're not a fan of homebrew applications, or getting paid software for free, then an R4 card may not be something you're familiar with.

But, not anymore, thanks to the high courts in the UK, who have just decided to ban them from the country.

After all, it's the real shining achievement. Other than this guy's balance, that is.
