Games You’re Gonna Want To Get!

Posted by g3tech on June 30, 2007

First off is Will Wright’s Spore (which is being publish by EA). As of right now, it’s only going to be released on the DS and PC. Here’s the concept: “From the very tiniest forms of life to the intergalactic level of existence, you are in control of life itself in this simulation game by Will Wright. Beginning in the primordial ooze, players create a character from DNA that will grow, survive, and mate as it evolves from a single-celled organism to a fully-formed member of an establishing species. As more and more creatures inhabit the world, and as evolution forms the future, your species will join herds, clans, even civilizations. The more advanced the creatures of the planet grow, the more complex the strife of survival becomes. And while the player can continue gameplay in Spore at any level — playing as a cell, as a wild creature, or as a civilized and organized society – players can also step even further out and play the game from the planetary or interstellar level, while also going online to connect worlds with other gamers.” To Be Released: sometime in 2008

Sound kinda interesting? Here’s a trailer:

Next up, is a game that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time which is Unreal Tournament 2007. And it’s gonna be released on the PC, the PS2, and the 360. Here’s the description: “The Necris invasion has begun, and your clan was one of the first to be slaughtered. Head to the front lines and join this Epic battle to defend humanity while taking your revenge. Unreal Tournament 3 marks the return of the premiere tournament-style first-person shooter. Unreal Tournament 3 unleashes the full power of Unreal Engine 3, taking graphics, gameplay, and challenge to a whole new level. Players engage in intense and hyper-real battles with other human players online or against incredibly realistic Unreal artificial intelligence. Over two dozen weapons and vehicles have been upgraded and enhanced for maximum killing potential. Take on all comers in a variety of game modes including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, an all-new Warfare mode and more.” For those of you who are fans of the previous Unreal or Unreal Tournament games then you’ve got to get this game. To Be Released: Sept 3rd 2007

Here’s a great trailer:

Next, I’d like to introduce the next game in the Need For Speed series, called Need For Speed ProStreet, and it’s going to be released on pretty much every console and system, which means: DS, Wii, PSP, PS2, PS3 and 360. Already, we know there’s going to be a Collector’s Edition version for the 360, the PS2 and the PS3. Here’s the lowdown: “A new spin on the Need for Speed franchise, ProStreet thrusts players into a head-to-head competition against the best street racers in a multitude of racing showdowns. The game is a true taste of raw adrenaline and racing with consequences. Every dent, every scratch and every crumpled body panel is a battle scar, proof of your commitment and competitive mettle. With an aggressive and skilled AI system, you become immersed in an unmatched believable race experience. Add in a revolutionary online mode that will redefine the meaning of competitive social play, and Need for Speed ProStreet is the ultimate formula for an emotionally charged street racing showdown. It also pushes the “Autosculpt” technology to a new level, allowing you to directly impact your car’s performance for the first time as well as personalize its appearance.” (The Collector’s Edition packs in bonus content for fans of the Need for Speed series.) So check it out racers! To Be Released: November 2007

Let’s not forget the craziest gaming series on the planet (and one of the most popular) — Grand Theft Auto (San Andreas got a 9.9/10 on ign). GTA IV is going to be released only on the PS3 and the 360 (sorry PS2 fans) and, on these same two consoles, there’s also going to be a special edition released (The Grand Theft Auto IV Special Edition is presented in a customized Grand Theft Auto metal safety deposit box. The box contains a GTA IV artbook, a CD soundtrack, a keychain, and a limited edition duffle bag.) To Be Released: Oct 17th 2007 (so you better get your cash out, or if you have to, steal some money GTA fans — I’m just joking there —- don’t steal — it’s wrong — shame on you if you steal).

Here’s the only official trailer that exists:

Last Minute iPhone News

Posted by g3tech on June 29, 2007

Here’s a roundup of what’s hitting the wires this morning, if the iPhone’s on your shopping list. First, Apple now says it may not have enough phones to meet demand. Early reports said Apple would have up to 3 million phones available on day one, but that appears to have been overstated. Now Steve Jobs is saying that the company might not have enough phones to meet demand. I’ve heard other comments (also unofficial) that stocks could run out by Monday. But there’s no need to stand in line for one: You can order the iPhone online for delivery to your home or office!

Curiously, reports are surfacing that AT&T has managed to boost the speed of its much-maligned EDGE network, possibly doubling it. At 200kbps, the service would still be fairly slow (only four times dialup), but easily twice what standard EDGE gives you. This has been a major complaint in early reviews of the iPhone. AT&T seems to have been taking a brute force approach to increasing the speed of the EDGE network by simply running more cable to its cell towers. The results aren’t the 3Mbps or so of real 3G services, but every little bit helps.

Business users who want to get work email on the iPhone can rejoice now, as the iPhone can indeed support Microsoft Exchange email, provided you make the appropriate arrangements.

Meanwhile, the “Apple Faithful” are lining up like lambs to the slaughter at Apple stores around the country. The scene at these stores is obviously expected to be a madhouse. If you want a better shot at a short wait for the iPhone and you absolutely have to have it tonight, then go to an AT&T store, which will almost certainly be far less crowded. 

I’ll post more iPhone reviews soon, so check back!!!

The Phone in the iPhone’s shadow

Posted by g3tech on June 29, 2007

Meet the Helio Ocean: the best alternative to the iPhone.

Around the corner from Apple’s showcase store on Fifth Avenue in NYC, a new store is opening tomorrow. The Helio Ocean phone has arrived and the NY Helio store opens today. It is right around the corner from the Apple Store where people are already lined up to purchase their iPhones. Will the line extend around the corner?

The Helio Ocean does quite a lot for quite a lot less money. The phone costs half of what the iPhone does, but does more. It looks very Sidekick-like, but has dual keypads, a full QWERTY keyboard that slides out so you can type, and a numeric keypad for dialing phone numbers.

Equally important, it runs on the Sprint Network, a 3G network that’s much faster than the AT&T network that comes with an iPhone. You can expand the memory (again, something you can’t do with iPhone). It’s got fast Internet access, a 2-megapixel camera, text messaging, picture and video messaging, multimedia and music, and GPS. It costs $295, with Helio memberships starting at $65 a month.

The phone is targeted at the young and hip. As a Helio member with an Ocean phone you get a MySpace mobile capability that lets you update your profile info and use MySpace right from your phone. The Helio also has a built in Buddy Beacon which lets you broadcast your physical coordinates to your friends so they can find for you.

The Helio stores are more like a Starbucks than a store. You’re encouraged to try out all the new applications for the phone and hang around to meet other Helios. My hunch is that you’re going to see the crowd with graying temples on line at the Apple Store, but the connected kids might just wander around the corner to Helio.

iPhone Launch Day Arrives!

Posted by g3tech on June 29, 2007

After six months of hype, thousands of people will finally get their hands on the iPhone.

By early evening Thursday, short lines of eager customers were camped out at Apple and AT&T stores across the nation. The gadget, which combines the functions of a cell phone, iPod media player and wireless Web browser, will go on sale in the United States at 6 p.m. Friday in each time zone.

At Apple’s flagship store in New York City the trickle of customers that began queuing up since Monday grew to about 50 people late Thursday, ready to brave yet another rainy night on the pavement of Fifth Avenue, outside the 24-hour Apple store.

“It’s pretty miserable sleeping in the rain, but it’s worth it,” said a tired David Clayman, who was second in line at the store and had gotten a total of eight hours of sleep over four days, awakened at times by TV camera crews shining bright lights in his eyes. The Chicago resident vacationing in New York planned to buy two iPhones — one to resell to raise money for a charity and another as a gift for his father.

Apple has set a target of selling 10 million units worldwide by 2008, gaining roughly a 1 percent share of the cell phone market.

And despite the handset’s price tag of $499 for a 4-gigabyte model and $599 for an 8-gigabyte version, on top of a minimum $59.99-a-month two-year service plan with AT&T Inc., the phone’s exclusive carrier, some Wall Street analysts have predicted sales could hit as high as 45 million units in two years.

“That’s nuts. Over-hyping this thing just puts it at risk of being seen as a failure,” said Rob Enderle, an industry analyst with The Enderle Group. “Apple will break (sales) records for a phone of this class, but selling tens of millions of units so quickly is going to be tough. First-generation products always have problems that you don’t know about until the product ships.”

In all likelihood, however, Enderle and other analysts think Apple will grow its iPhone sales, refining its models and improving its software features — much as it did with the iPod, which has fueled record profits for the trendsetting company.

Apple introduced the original iPod in 2001, but sales of the portable player did not skyrocket until a few years later, after the company debuted sleeker, smaller models and iTunes jukebox software that allowed the iPod to work with Windows-based PCs and not just Macs. Apple has now sold more than 100 million iPods, dominating the portable music player market.

Even a gadget-loving person like Gene Cram, who owns a BlackBerry Pearl smart phone from Research in Motion Ltd., and sometimes also uses an older Palm Inc. Treo phone or his Motorola SLVR, said he’s going to wait for customer reviews before investing in what appears to be the latest must-have piece of techno-wizardry.

“It’ll be interesting to see how well it really works,” Cram, a flight instructor, said Thursday at a cafe next door to the Apple store in Burlingame, where lines hadn’t yet appeared.

Apple has not disclosed how many iPhones will available at launch. But analysts expect it will sell out by early next week.

SYTYCD – Top 16 (Elimination) – Shocking!

Posted by g3tech on June 29, 2007

Wow! Last night sure was one hell of a night! I couldn’t believe two of the things that happened last night (as I’m sure many people are): 1) Cedric wasn’t in the bottom 3!!! I couldn’t believe that Cedric wasn’t in the bottom, it wouldn’t have hurt so much if he’d had been in the bottom, but not gotten eliminated. I’m afraid this show is now turning into American Idol (Sanjaya anyone?). 2) The judges eliminated Jessi!!! Not only was she CLEARLY not the worst soloist, she’s always done really great together with Pasha. And not only that but Nigel eliminates her without any kind of explination, and I sure was shocked I had really liked her and Pasha together (great chemistry!). Cat was shocked, Jessi was shocked and I was damn shocked to death (I shouldn’t have been sitting in an electric chair…)

Anyway, back to my recap, here’s what went down on the dance floor last night:

The group dance this week was another African-type dance thing by Tyce DiOrio (I think Tyce really likes this African/Jazz type dance) to the Lion King’s “The Lioness Hunt”.

And now we find out the bottom 3 couples: First set of couples: Lauren & Neil and Lacey & Kameron. Which one’s in the bottom? Lauren & Neil (I called this one)

Next set of couples: Jaimie & Hok, Sabra & Dominic and Sara & Jesus. Who can possibly be in the bottom from this group? Sara & Jesus (I only partially agree with this choice, but out of these three couples, I would’ve chose them also, but I still like them.)

Then, Jessi & Pasha, (Jessi’s back!!! Whoo!!!) do their Cha Cha, that was supposed to be done last night. It was hot!! (and better than last night’s performance, in my opinion). Jessi’s gonna be dancing for her life, but is Pasha safe? Yes!

Last two couples: Shauna & Cedric and Anya & Danny come on stage. EVERYONE is thinking it’s gonna be Shauna & Cedric in the bottom but, nooo, some people have to take pity on Cedric and vote for him, poo on you! Anya & Danny will then be dancing for their lives.

Lauren takes her time to walk out, then takes off her jacket, and then starts dancing. Not much time left, but it definetly wasn’t that great. (Song: “Popozao” by Kevin Federline)

Neil gets out onto the stage and performs a solo that involves as much spinning and jumping that you can possibly fit into 30 seconds. It was certainly impressive in my opinion. (Song: “Come On” by Ben Jelen)

Sara breaks it down b-girl style, and I really enjoyed it – in my opinion the best solo from the girl’s side tonight. (Song: “Ladies First” by Queen Latifah)

Jesus mixes some hip hop moves into his ballet/contemporary routine. But, unfortunately, I really can’t say it was the best male solo, but I don’t think it was bad. (Song: “What I Like About You” by The Romantics”)

Jessi does her thing, a kind of hip hop, popping-and-locking kind of routine, she’s doing great, especially since she just came back from the hospital. It was a pretty good solo. (Song: “Ice Box” by Omarion)

Danny takes us to ballet school in his solo of kicks and spins. (Song: “A Song For You” by Elliott Yamin – a bit of American Idol advertising right here?)

The final solo of the night, Anya, does some kind of weird solo. She should’ve just stuck with her thing and done some kind of latin solo dance, just like all the other dancers who did that kind of solo, but no, she does some kind of strange contemporary-latin dance. I’m also not really sure what kind of stange outfit she was wearing, not very latin if you ask me. This was certainly the weakest solo of the night. (Song: “Fields of Gold” by Eva Cassidy)

Time to take a break from the dancing and listen to some “Fergalicious” music — except Fergie’s singing “Glamorous”, oh, wait, never mind, she has 6 dancers, we’re certainly not taking a break from dancing on this show. Then, out of nowhere, comes Ludacris, right out of the audience. He must have forgotten that he was supposed to perform. I almost forgot to mention Fergie’s yellow pants and just how high her heels were. Anyways back to business….

Commercial break and the judges have returned to tell us who’s getting cut.

The girls are first. Who’s gonna go? Nigel tells the girls that they all had weak solos and that the decision they made wasn’t unanimous (it was 2-1), but majority rules in the world of dance. Nigel wastes no time and eliminates Jessi right away (she certainly did not have the weakest solo).

The guys are next. Nigel tells Neil and Danny that their solos were outstanding so that leaves Jesus, his solo just wasn’t good enough. As they (used to) say: “You are the weakest link goodbye!” (Except the weakest link was Cedric, but anyways…)

I’d also like to say that last night, Pasha got a standing ovation last night, and if Jessi had been there last night, there is NO WAY Jessi ever would’ve gotten eliminated

There’s a massive discussion online, on the forums, about why Jessi was eliminated, just like that, without Nigel explaining himself. I also just wanted quickly to point out that there’s also a petition to get Jessi back going around (I’m not sure what good it could do – but you could at least give 10 seconds of your time to sign it)

Anyways, here’s some of the things people have said (I did NOT write  any of the comments to follow):

One person says: “Well first off, I’m glad that others feel as astonished about Jessi getting booted (especially with no reason given) although I don’t agree with everyone’s reasoning. Anyways, I know a lot of people think Jessi being booted is wrong, and that’s fine. I don’t much like it either. I fully realize that there can only be one winner, so in the long run it’s not THAT big of a deal…but it certainly makes the show look bad when they kick her off after you look at the BIG PICTURE.

1) Jessi did very well with the Viennese Waltz and the Jazz routine. The judges themselves were VERY outspoken with their disapproval that they fell to the bottom three after the Jazz routine. They were heavily inclined to say “America got it wrong” … so are the JUDGES wrong this week (or ever)? Surely if they’re saying five million voters are collectively wrong, a small panel of three people could be equally faulty in their judgments.

2) I get that she was dehydrated…and that she should monitor that more closely. What *probably* happened is she didn’t have enough salt in her body (in which she loses with sweating) and that would throw off her heartbeat as that salt is absolutely vital for our bodies to function…especially since that salt helps electrical currents (for the lack of a better term at the moment) pass through our body, especially with our heart. Purified water does not have very much salt content (if any, depending on the brand/bottler), so she probably should have been drinking other types of water and/or eating saltier foods. She probably drank purified water and ate non-salt foods…thus almost drowning her body.

Interesting thing is that even when she was feeling weak, she probably thought she needed to drink even more water and just made it worse…and kept practicing through it thinking she was fixing it by drinking more water. People don’t know they’re really intoxicating themselves. It’s hard to place blame on her for this, as most people don’t even know about how sodium is vital to the body and wouldn’t even think to check that sodium level.

Even with her dehydration OR deprivation of sodium…I don’t view that as a valid reason to boot her off the show. Faina collapsed after being dehydrated RIGHT AFTER one of the final tryout performances…and she made it into the top 20. There is more pressure and more practice (thus energy exerted) NOW in the competition than before in the Vegas tryouts. If this is truly the reason Jessi was removed, it’s at the expense of undeniable hypocrisy when Faina’s case is taken into account.

3) It was not her decision to stay out of the show to dance her routine. It was her doctors. I’ve heard people say “well Lauren had the flu and she still danced!” well I’d give you credit if you realized that doctors did not PREVENT her from dancing. A doctor’s recommendation goes a VERY long way with Nigel and the show, they take that very seriously and there is nothing the dancer can do in defiance of it.

Even so, the routine got the votes for her partner Pasha (even with that other chick Meredith (?) dancing…which, given her age and figure, made it a little awkward for some reason, although she was a superb dancer)…and when Jessi performed it last night (look at me online at 2 am going on about this! haha!) it was quite amazing. They did a great job…fantastic chemistry (best chemistry between ANY couple). I would bet anything that they would not have been in the bottom three with that routine had she not been prevented from performing it…as it doesn’t matter WHO you are, that routine was about as perfect and as sexy as they come.

4) Her solo was actually good! Lauren and Anya did absolutely horrid, MUCH MUCH worse than Jessi did last week. I agreed with Nigel last week that Jessi’s solo was not up to snuff…but this week I thought it was pretty darn good. Even if it wasn’t as good in their eyes, you simply cannot just ignore how horrible Anya and more specifically Lauren performed.

Lauren – she barely danced! I laughed when someone here said it was bad enough that she was dancing to Kevin Federline…I don’t like his music either, but that in particular just did NOT work for a dancing solo/routine. I was really surprised to see how she danced, I think she actually choked and froze up a bit so could only walk and strip. BY FAR the worst solo on this show. I like her and how she has danced with her partner, but not enough to overlook that solo. It’s called “dance for your life” … but I didn’t even see any dancing, much less dancing to the level that would keep someone in a dancing competition.

Anya – not much dancing here either! Besides that, I didn’t see much heart in her performance. Her moves looked sloppy and off-beat, like she was nervous or just didn’t care. I don’t think she took much appreciation of the idea that it’s called “dance for your life” because that guest judge said that America likes them and just wanted to see them dance solo…so perhaps Anya took that to heart and didn’t take the dance as gravely serious as she ought to have. This too was not as good as Jessi danced LAST WEEK, and as I said previously…I didn’t much care for that either.

5) This show has coined the phrase “America’s Favorite Dancer” yet we had no decision whatsoever. I did not mind the rules that she had to dance for her life because she did not perform, that is fine…but when you take EVERYTHING into account and see other dancers who have not been as good as Lauren and in particular performed at a level that is beneath the show’s talent level in their solo’s…I would have rather had the opportunity to vote on her. It’s hard to come up with something that would be fair to her and not throw off the schedule of the show…but it SEEMS that anything less than a retraction and revote (and apology by the panel) just won’t get the job done. For this reason alone, I doubt anything will be done to rectify the situation unfortunately. I think Nigel has it in him to admit when he was wrong…but to reverse such a decision and eat THAT much crow would be hard for him (or anyone) to do on national television. I do feel as though it really warrants it though…as the decision, with all the above points in mind, seems to be blatantly incorrect.

Given further thought, perhaps it would be wise to retract the decision and give America the opportunity to vote on this week’s bottom girls. IF they vote to remove Jessi, I would respect that 100x more than I respect the decision made by the judges…if for nothing else, because this show is supposed to be for America’s favorite dancer NOT the judge’s favorite dancer. Plus, I think this type of fix would be better than to reinstate Jessi and kick off another girl. Give America the voice it deserves to have.”

Someone’s response to this comment was: “You were definitely right in saying that America NOT having any sort of choice in this was very unfair, and considering the fact that her lack of presence was only due to health problems it seemed grossly skewed. What’s more is it wasn’t simply a physician’s recommendation, but a mandatory hospitalization. You’d think some sort of exception could be made, especially considering that she couldn’t have been released more than a day earlier.

You’re also right in your analysis of the other solos — I thought Anya was gone for SURE… she was completely bland. And Lauren did barely anything. At least Jessi was creative and fun to watch. I find myself rolling my eyes more and more this season.

The way they told her was also appalling. I felt like I missed something for a moment there. It seemed almost cruel. All around I am disappointed by this decision, both in logic and execution. Shame on the judges for this one. Shame.”

Another person pointed out that: “the wednesday night show is actually filmed on monday, so jessi was prolly in the hospital for longer than a day before she got back on thursday. She could have gone against medical advice, but i dont think nigel lithgo would let her do that because it would be a liability to the show if anything happens to her. I personally believe they are not telling us the severlty of her condition and had to let her go for future liability reason

The way the judges let Jessi go, I’m convinced that they know more than we do. It was completely different than any other week. I believe it was for health reasons. First, they don’t want to damage her even more, 2. they don’t want something to happen during a taping which could harm both dancers, what if she were to faint during the middle of a dance? 3. not all of the choreographers have assistants on hand, Pascha was lucky but that might not always be the case.

she could’ve danced on competition night..she chickened out..doesn’t it strike you odd that she danced the next day. I’ve been dehydrated before – was in ER and discharged after they rehydrated me after few hours. And about that abnormal EKG – she could’ve went against medical advice (signed out of hospital against medical advice, if she really wanted it taht bad) and came back after competition night for further work-up if she wanted.”

5 Reasons Why Not To Get An iPhone

Posted by g3tech on June 28, 2007

Price/Storage: Probably the biggest reason to wait is the price. The iPhone will cost $500 USD (4GB) and $600 USD (8GB) AND you still have to sign a new two-year agreement. Don’t expect this phone to replace your iPod either. The top-of-the-line, $600, 8GB iPhone only holds 2,000 songs, and only a handful of videos and full-length movies. You could easily get an  80GB video iPod for almost half the price. There’s no reason to have to pay full price and sign an agreement.

Plans: As I mentioned previously, the cheapest plan is $60/mo for 450 minutes. And in two years, you’ll end up paying close to $2,000 for service alone. Plus there is the $36 activation fee, and a two-year contract on top of that. Those who already have an AT&T account can expect to pay an additional $20-$30 for the “iPhone plan” which includes Visual Voicemail, 200 SMS text messages, and unlimited data since there is no voice-only plan. And to top it all off, Apple’s web site says that a two-year agreement is required for iPhone activation.

Network: Surprisingly, the iPhone does not run on a third-generation (3G) network, instead it runs on the slower EDGE network. Forbes thinks Apple opted for the slower network because AT&T’s EDGE coverage spans across 13,000 cities and towns nationwide, compared with only 165 major U.S metro areas that have 3G coverage. Perhaps a second- or third-generation iPhone will have 3G capability. And while the iPhone may have Wi-Fi capabilities, realistically, looking for a hotspot when you’re out can be a challenge.

First Generation: A geek’s rule of thumb is to never get a first generation gadget. Apple is one of the few companies that revamps its products at such a quick pace, that in this case, they actually make it quite bearable to wait for the second revision. Look at all the improvements they’ve made on iPods and MacBooks. It may seem like waiting for a new iPhone will be an eternity, but I bet it’ll be a matter of months before we see a better, faster version.

Long Lines: I love technology as much as the next guy, but no gadget is worth standing in line days in advance for, not even the iPhone. People have already started to line up, and some are even betting real money that someone will get trampled. I would add getting shot at, beaten, mugged, and possibly being hospitalized to the list. (Anyone remember PS3 sales?)

Spice Girls To Reunite!?!

Posted by g3tech on June 28, 2007

The Spice Girls just announced a reunion tour. Here’s the details:

After a huge publicity build-up, the massively popular girl group of the ’90s have announced Thursday that they have agreed to reunite for six concerts around the world, their first since breaking up in 2001.

Rumours of a reunion have been going on for weeks.

Victoria (“Adams”) Beckham (“Posh Spice”), Melanie Chisholm (“Sporty Spice”), Geri Halliwell (“Ginger Spice”), Emma Bunton (“Baby Spice”) and Melanie Brown (“Scary Spice”) formed the Spice Girls in 1994, and they became a global hit.

The Spice Girls’ 2000 album, “Forever,” had weak sales, and they began concentrating on their solo careers.

And, since we’re strolling down memory lane, here’s a song of theirs, that you, without a doubt, remember:
