So, I recently stumbled upon these videos that Peter Jackson has posted during the making of The Hobbit!!! For anyone who knows me you know, I am a huge Huge HUGE Tolkien, Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson fan!!! So when I watched these videos I was beyond a little excited, and it kind of even made me feel like I got to be a part of it all too!  Gives me a little something more to satiate my Middle Earth appetite till The Hobbit is out in theaters!

ENJOY!!!

The Great Jobs has spoken- the iPad is here!!! January 27, 2010

So… the wait is officially over!  Steve Jobs introduced the Apple iPad earlier today to tons of excited Mac fans.  Part iPod Touch, part laptop, part… feminine hygiene product.

Ok, well not that last one… but, I mean really with a name like iPad who didn’t see the tampon jokes coming???  I mean, I will say when it’s my time of the month, I’ll feel clean and confident with the Apple iPad.

But, now that the cats out of the bag let’s talk about the latest gotta have Mac Gadget.  And yeah… even with the sucky name… I am drinking the Apple Kool-Aid!  And I WANT IT!!!  I mean reading the New York Times in the park on my trusty iPad!?!  The thought of having my comic books on a computer without fear of ripping the pages in my bag!?!  10 hours of battery power!??!  Umm sign me up!

Ok here’s what we’ve got…

Tech Specs:

  • 9.7 inch screen
  • “Multi-touch” touch-screen interface (ok Android you better get on that multi-touch ASAP!!!)
  • 1.5 pounds
  • 1/2 inch thick
  • Up to 10 hours of battery power (watching continuous video), with 1 month standby
  • Some models support 3G Network (only with AT&T… booooo hisss…)
  • Built-in speakers
  • Full touch screen keyboard
  • Accelerometer
  • Compass

Now the big questions… How much does this game changing magical device cost?   And when can I get my hands on one???

Well, for those light days- $499 for the 16GB; regular days- $599 for the 32GB and for the heavy days- $699 for the 64GB.you need the…  Max-iPad!!! haha Ok, last one I promise!  And the wait?  Not to long.  In about 2 months you can have one of your very own and be the envy of all of your friends!

The only thing thats missing for me… A camera???  I’m guessing that’ll come on the  2nd gen model, so well all feel like we need to drop another $500 to get the better model!

ohhhh… and side note, I CAN’T wait to see the iPad commercials!!!

 

Comic books going the way of the Newspaper & Magazine??? November 16, 2009

I do pretty much everything from my computer or from my phone.  Most of my friends are the exact same way about pretty much everything, except for one… COMIC BOOKS!  Yes, I am a comic book geek.  And yes, I have subscriptions at my comic book store of choice (Midtown Comics) for my weekly fix of floppies.

But, I have to say when you live in a little apartment, sometimes the idea of getting all my comics electronically is pretty tempting…

But, that’s just silly right?  No, true fanboy would do that right???  I’m not so sure anymore.  I mean the fact that all the heavy hitters are doing digital comics, motion comics and interactive stuff on the web makes it seem like this might be a direction I need to start taking more seriously… So, maybe having something that can support the amazing artwork and stories is out there… I just have to find it…  Enter the rumored Apple Tablet!

What do you guys think?

So… I went to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in IMAX 3D!  Come on is there any other way to see it?  And basically this video from a Japanese TV show explains my entire review of the movie!

P.S.  I may just have a bit of a crush on that Daniel Radcliffe!  Ahheeeeehheaeeaa  (insert high pitch squealing here and awkward face touching, just watch the video!)  AMAZING!
