32 gigs of greatness!!

Samsung have manage to create a 32 gig memory card, unfortunately I've found out that its not for the PSP. The good news is that its just a matter of time before it will, and it may even be able to take over harddrives in computers maybe actually making windows run a little bit more reliable.

Imagine all those series on your PSP....Lost, 24, Power Rangers light speed!!! The list is endless.

A man, a hero, a legend!!

Traveling to new depths of malpractice, a 22 year old bus driver was caught playing a PSP whilst DRIVING A BUS!!

Ha ha this is ha ha this is marvelous amounts of stupidity and total disregard to responsibility and human life. Click on the title to read the rest of dimsums escapade.

I tell ya...next minute you'll catch him juggling Molotov cocktails in a nursery.

Samsung i310 8 gigs that's 24 inappropriate films!!

The new Samsung i310 phone is the sequel to the entrepreneur i300 harddrive phone. This time it has 8 gigs instead of 4, a 2 mega pixel camera instead of 1.3, edge instead of just GSM, and windows mobile 5.

This is great specs for a phone, as this directly replace any thing on the current market for a music phone, plus replaces your mp3 player too. Come to think of it it replaces your PDA, digital camera and to a much less extent your camcorder!!

Its small, neat, and can be used to record hours of alcohol fuelled holiday fun!!

The only thing I can see that could dog the phone is what affected its predecessor....Poor battery life. I think this happens since it uses a micro drive instead of a solid state memory system, but time will tell.

More news as it arrives...

Update: The phone includes a Tv out function so seven, and saw....from your phone....on your tv....simply DREAD!!!!

For all you gadget fiends out there, this is just a friendly post to protect your wallets. There are some serious scams out there with websites pretending to sell vast amounts of cheap electrical goodies that are not released yet, demanding you pay by Western Union, and running off to Vegas on your kitty cash.

don't let this be you!!

Check this site(click on the title), and follow the guide lines. The main one is always pay buy Paypal.

Paypal is easy to set up and they have insurance on most goods.

That elusive Sonyericsson P990 had me in a frenzy but now im glad I waited or I'd be a most socially unacceptable chap indeed

Pedo is bitter even though its a short sitter.

Gary Glitter has been found guilty of his numerous child sex allegations. He was sentenced for 3 years in a Vietnamese prison, but rumor is he'll be out and back in the UK by Christmas where he "could" face charges on his arrival.

I could end this post in the last sentence but the title says he's bitter....
bitter that he got away with only 3 years,
bitter that he's already spent 4 months and worse case scenario, he'll be back to the UK haven prisons,
bitter that this could happen in 9 months time.

Im sorry but he should be "bitter" that im not in jail with him fixing to turn him in to a unicorn with my magical screwdriver wand!!!

This guy is the epitome of evil, he should:
Have a permanent smile like he ran from Chelsea.
Meet my friend stanley.
Be At a prison party where they play pin the plugged in soldering iron on the pedo.
Be At a cocktail party with whatever he can find under the sink.
develop hemophilia and play football with essien from Chelsea.
Have only razor wire toilet paper in his cell.
Be given anthrax m&m's that melt in mouth not in his hand.
have "specially fitted plugged" in electric heaters in his bath.

I could go on about special treatment for pedo's such as cremating him and making a plastic doll so the kids can play with him for a change (hopefully with a magnifying glass in Cuba), but I leave the comments page wide open for your creative minds.

PC in your hand, PC in your hand, joy across the land.

Click on the title and you'll receive Microsoft latest secret weapon, The Origami.

No The Gate man has not regressed to impressing people with folded up bits of paper, he has hit the absolute money load!!!!

I actually don't think it can get bigger or better than this!!

Remember my previous post of the Dualcor? Well take away the mobile ppc part, add a mobile xbox part increase the screen (unfortunately and size) and the Origami is what you get, a real gaming machine, a real, computer, and a real heavily supported new device which also is a multimedia control for your media centre PC.

A sentence to make you gamers out there stigmata:

The Origami has Halo with xbox graphics mobile, wireless death match over wifi (see video)

The details on the Origami are a bit sketchy (as in I have none for you), but the few things I do know is that it has GPS built in, and according to the video, the Origami has Bluetooth, wifi, touch screen, xbox graphics, and being a PC it must have some sort of hard drive.

I have done my best not to over react about the Origami in the work place but no-one said anything about not getting sectioned at 5pm!!!

Sonyericsson why do you hate my wallet so?

Sonyericsson(SE) must be this years Nokia (have I said that before?). Popping out kids faster than rabbits on oyster flavoured viagra, SE have announced 13 phones for the first half of this year alone and its only March!!!

Theyre killing us with electronic bonbons making us realize that in reality we can never satisfy, but just go on thinking reality is for losers.

Actually months after releasing what everyone thought was the perfect camera phone (K750i) They gon done it again. This time its name is the K800.

With credit to my previous post of the K610i, it is lead to believe that this (K610i)was merely a budget phone, as it has the absence of a flash and no "next level" improvements were included.
The K800 on is no mear budget phone, harboring a whopping 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus, and Xenon flash its rightfully knighted a Cybershot phone.

Cybeshot is the name Sony gives to its mid to high end range of digital cameras that have over 3 mega pixel and have enough features to roughly emulate a standard APS camera. This means you can officially get rid of your digital camera without ever looking back.

A first for the camphone world is a feature called best pic. This gives the phone the ability to quickly take 4 pictures before and 4 after the picture you want to take. Once you choose the picture you want to keep, all the other's are deleted, guaranteeing you get the best picture everytime .

It has all the mod cons, and is pretty much the same form factor as the K750i but with the incredible camera and 3G, unfortunately it will adopt the stinking DUO micro memmory card for expansion.

Roughly available Q2 2006, expect infinite honey pics!!

New phone from Sharp, always on point (see what I did there?)

Hey peeps, I realize many of you have been marvin for a new post for ages, you could call me slack, or you could call it keeping it real!!
You see as the title says I post the things that make near choke, and there hasn't been any for a while....untill now. Yes friends its the old bus syndrome again (waiting for 1 then 9 come) because my fingers are about to have blog diarrhea.

The first post is the new Sharp juggernaut phone the 904. As usual it will be exclusive to vodafone and will have a flip, a camera, and be huge but that's where similarities end.

Stats include:

3.2 megapixel camera
20 MB internal memory
tri band
2.4 inch, 262k colour, vga screen (drool has hit the table!!)
Motion Control Sensor
3d virtual surround sound speakers

I really can't be bothered to write down just stats because they don't really do this phone justice.

The first phone to have a vga screen!! Cant you get this in to your heads?!! This phone is frikken sick!!!

the screen alone makes this phone a need to buy item, but we need to address the equally amazing.

Facial recognition = you know finger print recognition to get access to offices? (biometric) well this phone aint gonna work unless it recognizes your face (can anyone say face off? or wait till they sleep?)

Gps= "at the next rotary take the 3rd exit fool" In a Mr T voice.

Bluetooth multiplayer games = hours of malpractice for doctors and surgeons all over the world due to 2 player Tetris over Bluetooth.

3G = All types of messed videos and internet pages....super fast...on your mobile.

Msn type chatting over Bluetooth = no more violating work email policy, but the social destruction of colleagues continues.

Due to our shores late April.

truly magnificent.

This is getting out of hand now!!

This is the new Sonyericsson W950i. Now...this is the 4th SE phone in 2 weeks that has severed my attention, again it has flaws but this time what it has to offer quite possibly out weighs that.

The cataract inducing feature that demands attention this time is its "4 Gig" internal memory. The memory is of the flash format meaning extra fast, non-volatile, and reliable, unlike the micro drives which are slow, doesn't feed down on the battery, and damage after 1 knock (can anyone say Nokia N91?).

Other features include:

Touch screen
handwriting input
USB 2 drag and drop interface
Radio with rds
Opera web browser
2.6 inch screen
Along with all the regulars such as bluetooth, mp3 player, etc.

The flaw like the W600i is no camera :(

But I think a lot of security waver signing business men will be very happy.

The only thing that confuses me is how long a shelf life will the W600i have since this is pretty much its evolved superior brother?

No matter the real winners are us, bring on all the Dragon ball z episodes.

K750i in Threeeeeeee Geeeeeeeee

This is the Sonyericsson K610i. Its a new common phone, that sports 3G capabilities, and a 2 mega pixel camera. As I said in the title this is a 3G version of a K750i but on closer inspections im wrong. The phone has a couple of near fatal flaws that I can only assume is an extortionist way for SE to make money.
No flash, micro duo card...bang and bang...Why? One of the great past times of being a human is socializing, most of the time we work during the day leaving evenings for bars and clubs, which usually have low lighting.
No light = no party time photos/videos.
Oh....but I see you undecided this Sonyericsson so you conveniently sell a flash adapter on your site on the same page that you have this phone, what a coinkydink!!!

The other big mistake (excuse the pun) is not using the normal duo card, but using a micro card instead, just when we got used to having them in our psp's you pull a fast one. Everyone knows when a new memory format is released its at least one and a half times the previous format.

Well I see the empty packet of dollar sign contact lenses in the bin and im not impressed so im not gonna go deep into this phone just make you aware that this "pimp" exists.
