Looks interesting. From what it seems Microsoft is doing, it looks like they want to eventually have a seamless media platform across their Xbox products, Zune products, and Windows Mobile products; for example, download a movie in one online store and you can use it on ANY product Microsoft supports.

I'll post something interesting as well: PSP-Go is now pretty much confirmed (to be announced next week at E3), and a thinner PS3 is likely to be available this August or September [along with a possible price drop].

Alienware is officially insane.
http://gizmodo.com/5272560/alienwares-allpowerful-m17x-obliterates-crysis-with-dual-1gb-nvidia-geforce-gtx-280m-graphics-cards

Technical specs for this upcoming LAPTOP:

17" 1920x1200 Screen
nVidia GeForce GTX 280M (x 2)
Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core
8GB DDR3-1333
1TB 7200RPM HDD or 512MB SSD
Blu-Ray Drive
Integrated GeForce 9400M for extra battery life
4 USB Ports
HDMI Port
12 lbs

The battery life for this thing may only be about 45 seconds with all that hardware.............................................................................................

I don't know what else to say except Alienware is nuts.

The best tech toy...EVER!

http://reviews.cnet.com/coupe-hatchback/2009-nissan-gt-r/4505-10867_7-33108986.html?tag=contentMain;contentBody

And I will destroy anyone who says otherwise.

P.S. I love that car.
P.S.S. Do engineers really use mac? I mean for multimedia and graphics I can understand people using Apple. But I don't think Solidworks or AutoCad are even available on mac (or linux) without virtualization.

Oh hells yes. On top of that, it's a fraction of the cost of supercars with similar performance.

And as far as the Macs thing goes, yeah there are a few people I know who are engineers with Macs (not many), and they start kicking themselves when they need to do CAD for projects and have to hike across campus to use computer labs that can actually run CAD software Razz.

First off, one does not "attempt" to get "chicks" when driving this car. They flock by the hundreds just like in the axe commercial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_zwft9VMP0

Second, if I had that car, I would drive it everywhere. Going to the cleaners, going grocery shopping, picking up kids from day care (other people kids, I have none), everywhere. If you have that monster you better show it off.

Third, if you can afford that car, you don't care about mpg. Besides, 15 mpg is still better than the hummer but it's way more fun. You might actually have a chance of getting away from the cops.

good luck at actually getting 15 mpg in that car, it has a 7 speed automatic but you'd have to keep it out of boost.
My dads truck gets 12 mpg at the best , my brothers 07 mustang gt/cs gets about 16 and new diesel trucks only get about 14 mpg anymore
Your mileage isnt anywhere close to the rated numbers usually

I suppose if I needed to cut an eight foot piece of foam into a round shape, that would be an option....

I prefer my 700 hp Z06, but i just sold that....lol
