Today I got an email from Sony, I was accepted to be a beta tester for SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo for the PSP. According to Sony:

Congratulations on being selected to participate in this exclusive public beta test. As a beta tester, you should receive the following item(s) via UPS in approximately 29 days:

– UMD Beta Disc
– Beta Manual

This is going to kick ass, SOCOM is going to be the first PSP game that can be played online and I will get to beta test it!

Nokia N90

Posted by Mark

Saw the N90 today, its A LOT bigger then I imagined and extremely over priced. The shop I was in was selling it for KD350. I played with it for like 2 minutes and I personally think it looks cool when closed but cheap when opened. The keypads design is the biggest culprit, I think thats what hurts its looks the most.

Aramex Problems in the US

Posted by Mark

Aramex are having problems with shipping out stuff in New York, below is an email from Aramex:

We have received a message from JFK that we are facing some problems with Customs Department as they are currently refusing to let HIGH VALUE shipments out due to some reasons which we are trying to work on with them, therefore we are keeping all shipments of high value In transit until the problem with customs is already solved and then we will update shipments on the system. I apologize for the delay although it’s not from our side but I will keep you posted with the progress of the case. Thank you again for your patience and best regards
