Palm Pre Rumoured To Be Launching On April 30

Labels: , , , , , , ,

According to Jim Vance, CEO of Logicomm, Sprint will be dropping the Palm Pre on April 30. This is 2 months before the expected June release date which is quite a leap, especially for Palm. Mr. Vance's Twitter page also said that they've been testing out WiMAX phones. There's no evidence that the Palm Pre will be launching this early, so I'm going to have to call this bogus. Sorry Palm Pre fans.

Starcraft II Beta To Start On March 31?

Labels: , , , ,

New rumour has it that the Starcraft II beta will be starting on March 31 at 6 p.m. PDT (9 p.m. Eastern). Apparently, this may be the real thing - 3 days from now!! - since there are "no apparent hints that it would be fake." At BlizzCon 2008 last year, a select few of attendees received Starcraft II beta keys and, apparently, some of them received an e-mail recently from Blizzard. March 31 is the original Starcraft I release date, so that would be one hell of an anniversary. I'm so excited, even though I don't have a beta key. If you want to take a look at the supposed e-mail, view the link below. It could be a fake though. I mean if you wanted to show off an authentic e-mail from Blizzard, press the damn Print Screen button on your keyboard, it's not that hard.

Earth Hour; Turn Off All Your Lights

Labels: , , , ,

Don't forget to turn off all your lights, electricity, etc. tonight at 8:30 p.m. for an hour. Keep them off for an hour and save the world. I'm sorry, but I can't go green tonight. I have to do some Physics work - so I have to keep the lights on - and I've got to stay committed to Twitter and my blog. That is, if I have time in between my homework. I'll try my best to keep the electricity to a minimum though, I promise.


Marvel Universe MMO In 2012

Labels: , ,

Recently, there was an announcement for Marvel's MMO game. Well, it looks like we'll have to wait a while for it. The Marvel Universe MMO is expected to launch in 2012 after a slew of Marvel movies, including: X-Men Origins: Wolverine (expected this May), Iron Man 2 (2010), Captain America (2011), Thor (2011), Spider-Man 4 (2011), and The Avengers (2012). The new MMO is expected to be released on the PC and also game consoles - most likely the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 (sorry Wii). This makes me wonder when the next next-gen consoles will be released now...

Asus 15.6-Inch Eee Top Now Shipping

Labels: , , , ,

It was a little bit delayed, according to Amazon's date of March 9, but it's alright. Pre-orderer's your order is now on the way. The 15.6-inch Asus Eee Top all-in-one PCs are now shipping. For under $600 USD, you will be receiving an Intel Atom 1.6GHz N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, an integrated webcam and, thankfully, will be running on Windows XP Home - instead of Vista. Just in case you think the 15.6-inch Eee Top is too small for you, don't forget that the 22-inch model will be available later this year. The ET2203 and the ET2003 will have an HDMI socket and will have a Blu-ray optical drive.


Family Crisis; Alfie Patten Not The Baby Daddy

Labels: ,

Over a month ago, the world was in shock. A 13-year old (who looks 8) named Alfie Patten was revealed to be a very young father. The mother? A 15-year old (who looks 28) named Chantelle Steadman. Alfie was shocked but still vowed to be a good father even though he's still a kid at heart, hence the PS3 controllers - this would not make a good Sony Playstation 3 ad. But today, revealed something even worse than having the baby. Realizing that he wasn't the father!! After a recent DNA test, it revealed that Mr. Patten is not the baby daddy. Usually, you would have a dance party - identified in the video below - but Alfie was not impressed. He was "devastated" by the news and now no one knows who the father is. On a side note, enjoy the video.


Live Ulysse Nardin Chairman Pictures

Labels: ,

Remember the Ulysse Nardin Chairman, the so-called hybrid smartphone I talked about yesterday? Well, here's a picture of what it looks like in real life. As you can see it's fairly chunky, but it packs a friggin' rotor on the back so it has an excuse. Don't forget that it also has a 2.8-inch multitouch screen and a 5MP camera. It has decent specs for a luxury (as in expensive) phone.


Sony Announcing Something On Tuesday

Labels: , , ,

Believe it or not but this is confirmed news. Sony will be announcing something on Tuesday, March 31. No one knows exactly what it is, but Kotaku is "leaning" towards a price drop. But wait, a price drop for the Playstation 2 and not for the Playstation 3. Sony could be announcing a price drop down to $99 USD for the Playstation 2. I will be extremely pissed off if Sony really decides to drop the price of the PS2 because no one cares about it anymore. Just drop the damn Playstation 3 price Sony, come on. I still want to get mine, y'know.


Blizzard Hiring For A New Game

Labels: , , , , , ,

Blizzard has been hiring for a new game for a while now. First, it was for the next-gen MMO from Blizzard, but this one could be for a new game altogether. It be for the PC or the Xbox 360, probably the PC though. Blizzard is currently looking for a software engineer for an unannounced game. They are currently working on 5 new titles now: Starcraft II, Diablo III, a new WoW expansion, a next-gen MMO, and this new unannounced game. The new WoW expansion is the one that means just about nothing to me. I used too much money on World of Warcraft and it was just time to move on. It's just too boring now, it could be their last expansion though.
