3G iPhone Rumors May 30, 2008Posted by Chaim Gartenberg in : Cell Phones , add a comment
Alright, there’s been an insane amount of news regarding a new iPhone model, an updated design, GPS and 3G internet speeds, for quite some time now. AT&T has already confirmed that such an device will exist sometime, and many clues– a stock shortage of iPhones in the US and UK, the plethora of spy shots of the “iPhone 2″, as well as Apple’s upcoming World Wide Developer’s Conference– have most of the tech world buzzing in anticipation of Apple’s announcement or even release of the new iPhone at the conference.
Let me just clarify: This is not a guaranteed thing. First, it is a DEVELOPERS conference; it is not meant for general consumers. While much press seems to lead to the contrary, just because it is an Apple event, Apple may not necessarily launch the iPhone then. Personally, I feel that Apple is more likely to concentrate on the 2.0 software release with the App Store; the developers would care more about the software then a new device. But whatever Apple does, we do know one thing: It will be interesting. We’ll have more coverage as WWDC approaches.
Guitar Hero 4 in Action May 29, 2008Posted by Eli Blumenthal in : Video Games , 1 comment so far
At the All Things D conference–a technology conference we mentioned in the last post about Windows 7, we got some more news from there about how Guitar Hero 4 looks and works. I have to say, while it still looks pretty cool and adds some cool features, it strongly resembles Rock Band to me when played.
You decide. Check out this video from the conference with it in action– Tony Hawk is on guitar and Paula Abdul is “judging.” Let us know what you think of Guitar Hero 4 in the comments.

Rock Band Stage Kit info May 26, 2008Posted by Eli Blumenthal in : Video Games , 1 comment so far
Rock Band Stage Kit
We know we’ve been covering a lot on Guitar Hero 4, but today we decided to show a little love to the original band game, Rock Band. The big news here is that, according to Gamestop, Rock Band will be releasing a “stage kit,” containing lights and smoke machine, for the Xbox 360 version of the game, though we suspect for the PS3 version as well. Though this little add-on ain’t cheap at $100, it may help fulfill your virtual rocker dream and will also give you a little more to brag about to your Guitar Hero friends when this is expected to launch on August 15.
So question: are you gonna spend your $100 bucks here to support your current Rock Band, are you now gonna go and buy Rock Band, or are you gonna just skip it and wait for October’s Guitar Hero 4. Let us know in the comments.

All versions, according to Gamestop.com, are expected to be released on October 27, so mark your calendars and start saving some $$$!
Readers– Which version will you get? Or will you ditch Guitar Hero entirely for either Rock Band (which is actually about $20 cheaper on each of the systems), or neither of them. Let your voice be heard in the comments.

Wii Fit out today May 21, 2008Posted by Eli Blumenthal in : Video Games , add a comment
Well today Nintendo resealed a whole new revolutionary product for the WIi called the Wii Fit. What this is, is a special exercise video game that costs about $90, and includes its own controller which is a very touch sensitive board. This board measures your weight, and Body Mass Index (BMI- a number which is based on your height and weight), and has special games to help you lose weight and get in better shape while having a fun time. You play the games using by either stepping on the board and doing thinks like yoga, boxing or skiing (skiing requires a special additional game called Wii Ski, and costs $29.99), or using the board as a guide for things like push-ups. The game uses your Mii as the character, and gives encouragement as well as sign of how your doing as you play the game. For more information on the Wii Fit click here. Also for all of you interested in picking up one of these games, be sure to head out soon, because these things sell out quickly (think as fast as Wii itself).
Ok, so we all really need our computers for one thing or another–be it games, music and videos, school or just browsing the internet– and we all hate when it gets real slow at doing those things. Well here are a few ways to help speed up your computer in doing those tasks.
