New 15″ and 13″ Macbook Pro

The New MacBooks

The New MacBooks

Apparently the new 15″ Macbook Pro maintains the unibody design, but has a non-removable battery that lasts 7 hours. This is either a good thing or a bad thing. Bad in that I can’t replace my battery on the road. 

 

List of other new features

  • Better LCD, 60% more color gamut.
  • Finally a standardized SD slot. Guess they realized no one used that other POS slot. 
  • up to 3.06 ghz dual core, 500 gb hardrive and 8gb of 1066mhz ram.
  • Best part, $1699 introductory price….$300 less than before.
  • Firewire 800
  • The 13″ is nearly the same. At what point is it just a smaller Macbook Pro?
  • And it’s official all of the Aluminum unibody Macbook laptops are Macbook Pros.
  • $1199 for the base Macbook. Everything is cheaper, damn I bought my macbook at the wrong time I guess.




WWDC 09: It’s Here

8 06 2009

Well the WWDC is hear and I’ll be here to organize all the information in one nice spot. If that’s possible, I guess.

Will they announce a netbook? New iPhone? New iPod touch? We’ll see.

Too bad Im not here.....

Too bad I'm not here.....





Nintendo Press Conference: So likes Marios and Samus is CoolzA

2 06 2009

So the Nintendo Press Conference has come and gone. It started out pretty ho-hum as most press conferences do. Cammie Dunaway started things off with a bunch of numbers and trends and BS. 

Here’s the actual IP’s that were announced

  • Mario 4-D. Apparently 2-D side scrolling platformer + four playable characters at a time = 4D. Not sure how that math works out, but it looks entertaining.

  • A New Wii-Fit Balance board was announced. Apparently Wii-fit is the best selling video game in the world. Too bad it doesn’t make you not fat. 
  • After this a ton of mini-games revolving around the Wii MotionPLus. I understand these rudimentary stylized games appeal the most casual of consumers, but I’ve never been incredibly interested in them.

  • Some old video of Finaly Fantasy Crystal Bearers.
  • Nintendo Announces a GTA Clone. Basically rips the Chinatown Wars look frame for frame.  

    GTA: Reject?

  • The most interesting bit for the DSi is a WarioWare DIY which lets you design your own games. It’s not clear how it will work, but apparently “We believe this is as close to essential game design as any title has ever come.”
  • You can now upload your DSi photos to facebook. Dear God, how many balls have those guys at FaceCrack gobbled. Myspace is punching themselves in the throat right now.  

    Please god....no....

    Please god....no....

  • Now Nintendo announces the most WTF inducing product ever: A Vitality Sensor. What? Apparently your heartbeat is monitored through one of those doctor’s office finger clamps. How it will be implemented is anyones guess. But it DEFINITELY needed to be mentioned during THIS press conference
  • The one more thing Steve Jobs popularized brought two actually worthy announcements. The first is Mario Galaxy 2. If you loved the first you’ll drool over what they showed.
  • And last but not least a new Metroid, Metroid Other M. It seems to blend platforming and third-person action. According to Nintendo it will delve into Samus’ story and deeper into the Metroid World. Excited I am. 




Crysis 2: Prepare to Upgrade your PC again and your console?

Well the Crysis 2 trailer doesn’t show much of anything as you can see. What is interesting is the fact it will be coming to consoles. How the eff these consoles will due this game justice at a solid frame-rate is beyond me.

Whatever, they’ve got to make the dollars some how.





Holy Shit E3 is here!

2 06 2009

Ok so maybe I dropped the ball… off a cliff… on a bus filled with orphans, I swear I didn’t meant o miss yesterdays E3 coverage. But here is the good stuff I didn’t post from yesterday.
