I’m With CoCo, But It Doesn’t Matter Anymore

I’m an ardent fan of Coco. I watch The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien as soon as it hits. Last nite, I watched the last episode with Martin Scorsese and totally enjoyed Conan’s singing how NBC being a bunch of incompetent morons. If you caught the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, you’ll probably heard Julia Roberts saying “NBC, you’re in the toilets”. The show is over, Conan has left and is reportedly to be US$32 million richer in pay out. The downside, about 200 staff of the show is now out of work. NBC, stop being such a hole of Jay Leno. He’s yesterday’s news.

Who Would Want A 22-Inch Touchscreen iMac?

There used to be a time when it’s safe to invest in an Apple product to expect a 18-month gap before the next update. It’s no fault of Apple, technology is just moving so fast that if any Company doesn’t update with what’s new – they’ll lose out. The latest range of iMacs just got out not too long ago and already there are “rumors” of a 22-inch Touchscreen iMac hitting this year. Here’s my prediction. If the Apple Tablet is real and announced next week, the move to launch a Touchscreen iMac will only mean one thing. That we will all finally be able to do what those guys in the movie Avatar did. Slide some data off your main computer into a portable tablet device and continue reading, working, and pinching in-and-out while on-the go. It’s not that difficult, we already have an App for that. Check out BUMP for the iPhone. You can slide a photo from one screen and it appears on the screen on the other iPhone placed side by side. So who’s in line for these?

Venezuelan President: PlayStation Is “Poison” To Children

Yahoo! News: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said that Sony’s PlayStation video game console is “poison” and leads children down the capitalist “road to hell,”. Before this, he also slammed Nintendo for promoting “selfishness, individualism and violence”. He continued by saying any game that “bomb cities or just throw bombs,” are sold by capitalist countries to sow violence so they can “later sell weapons.” Oh my god! He is absolutely right! What a great awakening! I am so gonna throw out both my PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wiis and Xbox360s! Like now!

Nintendo Claims That DSi LL/XL Is Not Only For Old People

When the DSi XL launched in Japan late last year as the DSi LL, Nintendo rolled out an ad campaign featuring an elderly lady playing the DSi XL with her family. Japan, where the portable was designed, has a rapidly growing senior citizen population. “It’s absolutely not just for old people. DSi XL appeals to as many people, if not more, than its predecessors,” Nintendo senior product manager for DS James Honeywell told website CVG. “With bigger screens and a larger pen-like stylus it’s likely that older users may find the DSi XL easier and more comfortable to use but there are many more people it can and will appeal to,” Honeywell added. He also pointed out that it is easier to find the larger stylus between sofa cushions.

Oh STFU Nintendo! The more you deny it the more you’re just confirming it! Damn!

iTunes, Donation For Haitian Earthquake Relief

Apple has set up a feature on its iTunes Store main page to allow users to donate to the American Red Cross in support of relief efforts in the wake of Tuesday’s massive earthquake in Haiti. The donations, which are available in six denominations ranging from $5 to $200, will be processed as any other iTunes purchase, allowing convenient billing for existing iTunes users, and 100% of the donated amount will be passed along to the Red Cross.

Update: Tried donating. But it requires a US based credit card to proceed. Lame.

USB Scent Flower, Slightly Intrigued

I don’t think this is a bad idea at all. USB scent flowers for US$9.99 – you’ll get the flower with 3 refills. Now only if it comes in scent of Pepperoni & Cheese, Kentucky Fried Chicken or Popcorn & Bubblegum. Yumz.
