I had an invite for wordpress.com and I didn’t know what username to get. Then I remembered when I signed up to 23hq.com I was able to get the username “mark”, so I tried mark on wordpress.com and it was taken, I decided to try the next 4 letter word that came into my head which was fuck and it signed me up! I was expecting maybe a step 2 or confirmation screen but it just took the word fuck and now I am stuck with fuck.wordpress.com. I guess it’s cool…
“This is a real but minor issue involving a vendor quality problem in a small number of units,” Apple said in a statement, referring to the reports of seemingly unprovoked nano screen breakage. “Our figures show this issue has affected less than 1/10 of 1 percent of the total iPod nano units that we’ve shipped. It is not a design issue.” The company said affected customers should contact Apple to arrange for a free replacement unit. [Link]
I just downloaded two amazing freeware games for the mac. Both of them are shooters, fast and have great soundtracks. For Gunroar make sure you select the mouse as your targeting tool and then use the letters W A S D to move around. Both games are easy to pick up on and have a nice retro look to them so have fun.

A guy in the office got four iPod Nano’s, 3 black and 1 white. It has attracted a large crowd here in the office and everyone is ooohing and wowing. It looks extremely tiny in person, it’s very cool. Definetly going to reorder this now instead of the Sony Walkman Bean which I found out today you have to use a special Sony software to copy music onto the walkman and the software doesn’t work with Macs.
Update: Ok, I am just confusing myself to much. I just decided that I am going to hold out till the next generation iPod gets updated so then I can carry all my MP3s with me. I don’t need super tiny MP3 player. Will use the Shuffle till the new iPods come out.
Where did this come from?? I was just at the SonyStyle website when I found the Walkman Bean. The MP3 player looks really cool but the coolest thing about it is the built-in USB connector! So you can use the Walkman as a flash memory drive and a MP3 player. A full charge also lasts 50 hours! A 3 minute charge will give you a 3 hour charge! They come in funky colors and the most expensive one, the 1GB is only $149! The only downside, the ONLY downside is the fact that it doesn’t play AAC files.. but I guess I could get over that… [Link]
I was talking to BusyNow the other day about which game would be the coolest on the XBOX360 and the most important one we should get. It was a bit confusing because of all the great titles, today though I decided which game I NEED to have.. Perfect Dark Zero. I have it on the N64 and its a really cool game but the XBOX360 version is like so fucking different. I just downloaded a video of the game in action and the graphics are just unreal. Check it out.
