Snow Day!!, Motorola, PS3 Slim?

Labels: , ,

So, last night [or this morning], i ended up sleeping at around 4:15. I was pretty psyched about having a possible snow day today, but it never happened =(. Anyways, my mom yelled at me to get up in the morning, but that didn't work. She was waking me up because she was afraid that her car wouldn't make it out of the garage, due to the amount of snow. She's always paranoid of it happening now because it happened twice last year. But anyways, after i told my girlfriend i was going to get up and shower, i went back to sleep =D. Finally, i woke up at 9:00 a.m. and said [to myself] that i can still make it to school for lunch and Chemistry. So, it was time for me to start getting ready. I showered, changed and was out of the door by 9:37. My bus was at 9:45 so i was pretty early. I took about 21 steps outside and thought to myself... was there even a point of going to school today? I came to the conclusion that, no, it wasn't worth it. Some factors of this were: Religion and Advanced Function; already missed it, Lunch; doing nothing, Chemistry; doing review [pretty much nothing], having to walk fast in the snow to catch my bus (on the way home) and not being able to see my girlfriend after school since she has an exam. So, i promised myself that i would do my Advanced Functions homework and study hard for my Chemistry test, which is tomorrow. One more day and i'm home free. Luckily, for my girlfriend, her home free-ness starts in about 5 hours from now. Anyways, i dropped my bag off at home and i decided to shovel my driveway. I finished in about 11 minutes and went back inside. That's where i currently am now, sitting in my comfy chair and not outside in the cold weather, phew.

If you look above and to the left, you will notice 2 possible phones that Motorola may be coming out with in 2009. In my opinion, the above one looks pretty sleek. Let's hope that it's not all just looks for the phone though. I think they should pack a 3.2 megapixel or a 5 megapixel camera on both of these phones. But, they should also be sure to not drive the price tag up too high. It is rumoured to be released under Verizon Wireless next year. These phones do have nice concept designs, let's hope it's a reality. I have read about Motorola being on the verge of bankruptcy, which i thought was shocking because of the RAZR trend a couple years ago. Let's hope Motorola can pull out of their little slump and stick their heads out of this recession now.

Rumours, gotta love [or hate] them. So, is there a Playstation 3 slim in the works? The author of this article thinks so. He says, "According to this mysterious, mystical source ... Sony have already started work on a slimline PS3." This 'source' mentions that "The parts are already designed and ready to be manufactured, the console will be out as early as Easter 2009 and that it will retail for around $300." This is very interesting, but the source isn't too reliable, since he is "mystical" and unknown. The author also states that it may be too early for a PS3 slim, since Sony released the PS2 slim, 4 years after the original PS2's launch. The PS3, to this day, has only been out for just over 2 years. I think that this would be great though because PS3 slim = possible PS3 price drop. If this is true, i hope that the PS3 doesn't count out a huge chunk of their functionality. Someone in the comments (ChrisWanker), jokingly, mentioned that there will be "No HD, No Wi-Fi, No USB Ports, No B/C, No Blu-ray movie capability, yet still plays Blu-ray games (just for spite!)." I thought that was hillarious, especially the last bit about the Blu-ray capability. I think that Sony should really think about making that slim quickly though, since they are losing quite a huge amount of money on every PS3 original that they are selling.
