Dimensions of the Xbox 360 vs PS3

Post by Mark

For those of you who read engadget you might have seen a post today with a side by side comparison shot of the PS3 and Xbox360. The picture shows the Xbox360 much larger then the PS3, this is not true. In reality the xbox360 is smaller. The picture above is the accurate dimensions, the one on Engadget is wrong. If you notice the power socket of the xbox360 in the engadget shot, its been doctored. I really like Engadget, but sometimes they can be really unproffesional.

DC Comics New Logo

Post by Mark

dc comics

DC Comics launched a new updated logo earlier this month. I personally don’t like it, its too swooshy for my tastes. The old logo was a classic and I think it could have lived on for many more years. Now I personally haven’t picked up and read a comic in years so I don’t know if my opinion counts (I might be too old) but I still think the new logo is soulless. The old logo was designed by Milton Glaser over 25 years ago and the new logo was design by Josh Beatman of Brainchild Studio. It will be showing up on all their comics starting June.

I Won a Microsoft Mouse!

Post by Mark

Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse

Today at lunch time I collected my gift, a brand new Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse. I won it from Fadibou, the Microsoft guru 2 days ago because I told him I loved the Xbox. This mouse turned out to be a lot smaller and practical then I thought. You don’t need drivers or anything to start using it and works with Macs and PCs. There is a small USB receiver which you plugin to an empty USB slot and you are ready to start using the mouse. When you want to put the mouse away, the small USB receiver snaps onto the underside of the mouse! Although the mouse is tiny it fits very snugly into my large hands because of the way the mouse is shaped. It also uses just 1 AA sized battery which provides it with enough juice for over 3 months of use.

To get more information or to purchase the mouse for $34 click here (Amazon.com).

The Sith Sense

Post by Mark

sith sense

A while back I posted a link to 20q.net. It was a website that could predict what you were thinking by asking you 20 questions. Well I just found a site that uses the same idea except its ALOT ALOT cooler. Darth Vader will show you his sith sense by asking you 20 questions himself!! Its amazing, I couldn’t stop laughing, his taunts are the coolest. Its flash based so it will take a bit of time to load at first but once it does there is no more loading. PLEASE make sure you have speakers on your computer and the volume is raised. If you don’t do this you won’t enjoy it as much! [Link]

Adult Movie Posters

Post by Mark

It’s not as dirty as it sounds. This website has adult and exploitation movie posters from the ’60s and ’70s for purchase. Although it might sound dirty the posters are more funny then sexy. My favorite one is the Ordered to Love poster, if only I could afford its $700 price tag.. [Link] (safe for work)

The 30,000 Calorie Sandwich

Post by Mark

Maybe its a bit too early in the morning to think about food but I couldn’t wait till lunch to share this link. There is this guy who wanted to break the record for the amount of calorie’s in a sandwich, the previous record was 8,500 caolories and he wanted to make a sandwich with a lot more. So, he built his own custom sandwich to compete and his total amount of calories was 29,500! Its like one bite and you are suddenly overweight. [Link]

Bloggers Meetup at the Movies

Post by Mark

I just got back from watching Star Wars at Fanar. I went with Nat, Fadibou, Missundaztoood, Tivo Guy and Calmness. Fanar is definitely a much better movie theater then Marina. The sound was great and the theater much larger, the whole experience was much better then my marina one. The company I was with was also great, we booked the tickets from KNCC.com earlier in the day so we were able to get excellent seats next to each other. Even if we hadn’t booked beforehand I dont think we would have had a problem getting decent seats, the theater was basically empty, not a lot of Star Wars fans in Kuwait it seems. Thinking about the movie now, I think it was actually pretty good, specially if you look at it from episode 1 all the way to 6. Lucas managed to merge them all together very smoothly.

I can’t wait till they come out with the Star Wars Sixology DVD set, that would be amazing..

Where will we have lunch today?

Post by Mark

Me and Tivo-Guy both hate making decisions on where to have lunch. Our conversations always end up with “you choose” “no you choose”. So, we came up with a solution, create an online software that would decide for us where we would have lunch today.

Tivo-Guy went and created a custom online software in which he added in all our choices for lunch. Now, whenever we want to go have lunch, one of us would click the button on his website and the software decides for us where we will have lunch. The software then sends both of us an SMS with the answer (today its pizza hut).

I would share the website with you guys but then you would probably keep clicking the button and we would keep getting SMS messages non stop through out the day. But I took a picture of “the button” and I attached it to this post :)

@Budweiser.com Emails

Post by Mark

Just signed up for a @Budwesier.com webmail account, its free ofcourse. They only give you 5MB worth of space which isn’t a lot but on the plus side you can check you regular POP account emails. I guess this email address is pretty cool if you are a major Budweiser fan, personally I am not, would rather have an @jackdaniels.com account..
