Wind Waker style visuals (which i have to say arent too bad, i like wind waker, the ammount of detail that was able with cell shading was amazing).  IGN thinks its gonna be some sort of Wind Waker companion, whatever, i dont care too much, i just know i need to get some money together to buy all the amazing games for DS, and the revolution, and see all the great movies coming out this spring!

nintendo’s backside

So here is the first shot of the back on the Nintendo Revolution. The thing that bothers me is not the increased girth, but the combined AV port. This means there are no more hopes of surround sound being supported, unless Nintendo has something weird up their sleeves, which could be, it kinda look proprietary to me….

Broadband internet on Mars

So, when we ever get to Mars, there comes a big question, how will be be able to track the latest sports scores, or track our portfolio? Current data transfer rates are extremely slow compared to the connections most people have in their homes.

Researchers at MIT have made the possibility of high-speed optical communications in space a more realistic one by near-trebling the efficiency of a nanotech-based photon detector, New Scientist reports.

Interesting, hopefully they will get it working better by the time we make it to Mars, in i say 15 years tops.

Super strong robots of the future?

Ok, if you combine the news reported in this post, about artifical muscles, and this post about robots guiding museum visitors, you get something that’s absolutely scary!

other robots will be programmed to guard archeological sites from grave robbers and guys like Indy and his nemesis, Beloq.

Thats taken from the last line of the museum post.  Combine those artifical muscles, and you got one scary killer robot.  Is anyone besides me thinking The Matrix and/or Terminator?

Personally, i’d like Terminator, because, then there’s a 50/50 chance of the robots being good, or evil.

Google Finance

Google launched Google Finance yesterday. Nice service allows you to search the stock market. However, this was possible on normal google, by just searching a ticker, now, that is no longer necessary. Searching disney on http://finance.google.com brings you up a page with a chart showing the progress of The Walt Disney Company, the current price, the highs of the day, year, and more.

Google also offers you an online portfolio, where you can enter the stocks you’ve bought, how much you paid for them how many shares you bought, and what they’re worth at the current prices.

I love that feature most, cause now it means i dont have to log into ameritrade to track my stocks every day, just when i want to buy/sell.

What’s the point in having a huge selection of mp3s to choose from, but not having any of the album covers for them?

This little script from UNEASYsilence gives you that option

step by step instructions

the script itself

I’ve been using it to update all my album art since they first had it up, it works.
