    Apple press conference today: iMac news

    Apple held a press conference today where they announced new prices for it’s iMac brand. This helps to position it for all the back to school sales that should be happening this month. The new iMacs will have thinner aluminum casings have 20 and 24 inch displays and will cost $1,199 to $1799 depending on configurations. The cost of the 24 inch iMac has dropped by $200. Personally, I recommend the Macbook pro for anyone looking for a laptop, but this might be a great solution for those that like to have a desktop. The other announcement was that Apple is adding a software “button” of the iPhone that allows users to upload photos taken with the built-in camera to .Mac.

    Want to be the Legendary Hero?

    Are you the ultimate Zelda fan? Do you have it all? The games, the figures, the cosplay costume, the box set of the cartoon. We’ll excuse me Princess; you’ve got nothing till you have your Wii attachment. A company called Camy International has releases a Wii attachment to capitalize on the popularity of the Wii’s Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. This attachment is called the Hero Pack and prices around 20 dollars. The Wii-mote is inserted into the handle of the master sword. (The blade is foam so it’s safe to be swinging around) and the nunchuck is inserted into the handle of the Hylian Sheild. This is for the ultimate Zelda fan, but I wonder how events like fishing would work with the attachment. For a complete review of the attachment hit up IGN http://gear.ign.com/articles/810/810918p1.html

    Take your dating on the road

    Tired of waiting to get home to see if you have any emails from Match.com? Well now you can take your dating on the road. MatchMobile will be launching in the US, UK and Canada. You’ll be able to answer emails from other Match.com subscribers and search for potential matches from your cell. Because the search for Mr. or Mrs. Right should never end right? But this also means a higher frequency of messages too. Getting messages on the phone and to be able to answer them ($5 per month more) will allow members to continue talking. Even when they should be working. Personally, I found Match to only give creepy results. I think I met two good guys through Match. And met a whole handful of liars. But this does bring about a new way to find your “match”. Now we have to figure out a block or ignore

    Second Life Bans Gambling

    In a recent blog post on the Second Life website, Linden Labs have announced that they are banning gambling within SL. To this very casual SLer, I can’t say this is a surprise. With Canadian and American goverments cracking down on online gambling, it’s not such a stretch to see it shut down in SL. Linden dollars are bought and sold for real world money, which makes it no different from regular gambling sites. It seems there’s going to be a lot of dissent on this announcement, especially since a lot of SL users are not located in the United States, and it can seem unfair to have their fun shut-down because of a US law. But, according to Linden Labs, they have always tried to make sure that Second Life and it’s residents adhere to real world laws. I know that gambling, especially slot machines, have been big since
