According to Nerd Lord Joss Whedon, we will soon have a shiny new Serenity Special Edition to wrap our gorram mitts around.
You Can’t Take The Sky From Me
“For it may be that, unwittingly, they are inviting persecution — that they have been partly responsible for the antagonism from which they suffer.”
So, you go about your business, happy in the world — or at the very least staying out of trouble and trying not to starve to death — and some son of a bitch decides he’s going to kill you. To make himself feel better. Because he doesn’t like your looks. Because he is envious. Because what the fuck.
See? It’s all your fault. For being alive.
So stop that. Right now.
Personally, this is the first time I’m actually tempted by a Sony audio player; the A800 is still relatively thin, has that gorgeous colour screen and is quite handsome in a solid-looking way.
Also, Japan’s AV Watch website has a full review with lots of pictures. In Japanese.
While I have your attention, I’d like to renounce the “iPod Nano Killer” headline in the prior post linked to below. The key to the iPod Nano is not simply its size, it’s the iTunes software and experience. Now, if Sony could develop an easy way for people to migrate their music and videos from iTunes to Sony’s software, as well as come up with a good music store, they could cut themselves a good slice of market share with this. It’s not impossible. Sandisk has been doing very well with their Sansa e200-series of players.

2. Price. Way back in June 2006, a German news site announced that “the Model Q2 from Samsung” would be priced at under $1000. However, Corrupted Mind (another forum member at Origami Project) has been told that it will actually be tagged above the Q1P and on par with the Q1-SSD. In other words, much higher than anyone would like.
Sorry, Samsung, but at that price, I say No! No! No!
I really want to see these things hit the US$700 mark. And not as a stripped-down, hardly-good-for-nothing version (that’d turn it basically into a Nokia 770!).
This is the picture of first apple computer.
Now imagine working for IBM. You are a Clean-Cut Corporate Suit selling large, expensive machinery to large, paper-drowning corporations in the mid-1970s.
You would have laughed at this.
You would have laughed if you’d seen this, its progenitor, too:
Welcome to David World, Goliaths!
Also makes you wonder why that thing is called a Slingbox, huh?
It seems the creator of this video clip tried to mimic the experience of what it is like to look in a mirror while tripping on LSD. The visuals and sound distortions do a great job of creating a freaky atmosphere. According to some of the comments, it’s as close as one can get to experiencing and understanding the effects of LSD without doing it yourself. Check it out and enjoy your simulated trip!
And this kind of shit is fun to you people? Are you all fucking retarded?
