My Blackberry Is Not Working! - The One Ronnie, Preview - BBC One

British humour is an acquired taste but I like it. Don't hate.

U.S. video game sales declined 5.7% in 2010

FNN: According to a report by the NPD Group, video game sales in the U.S. posted a 5.7% decline in 2010 to $18.6B from $19.7B in 2009 and $21.4B in 2008. As consumers curtailed spending in the uncertain economy, the group says games and consoles took a hit for the year, with software sales down 5.6% to $9.4B and console sales falling 12.5% to $6.3B. At the same time, video game accessories gained 13% to $2.9B.

Spending should be back to normal this year with an ascendant stock market, healthier jobs market, and Nintendo 3DS.

JOYSTICK-IT Arcade Controller

   The Joystick-It is a stick-on controller for use with any device that features a capacitive touchscreen which includes the iPad and Android-based tablets. It’s silvery and shiny which means gaudy and loud but it serves as a temporary solution for a joystick controller for touchscreen devices. Does the Joystick-It ruin the sleek aesthetic of the iPad? Yep, like a gold rope necklace on an otherwise immaculately dressed athlete.

Square registers awkward FF13 domain

   Lightning, Sazh, and company may have another adventure in store for them now that it has come to light that Square has registered the domain name "finalfantasy13-2game.com." Guess anything shorter was already taken by squatters.

   The domain registration was spotted by "superannuation" who tweeted the news to his followers. The registration was processed on January 11, 2011 for a length of 2 years and handled by "Corporation Service Company" who performs domain registration services for Square Enix.

   The Corporation Service Company has also registered the following domains for Square in the past:

The Nintendo 3DS is Region Locked and Another Nintendo 3DS Has Been Stolen

Dude travels to Japan and video-blogs...

From the video's description:
Hey guys, David here from nintendo 3ds blog dot com with a quick news update.

Nintendo's Japanese support team has confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS is region locked.

This means that if you try to play imported games on hardware with a different region code - like playing a Japanese game on a US system - it just won't work.

I'll still be picking up a 3DS in Japan, because I always expect the 3DS to be region locked, but it's still a shame that importing games will be a hassle.

And yet another 3DS has been stolen.

A Taiwanese fellow has got his hands on the device and posted a ton of photos, having pulled apart the unit and shown off all of its insides. Hopefully the exact technical specifications will leak soon, so you should check out the blog for those details.

But that's it for now. We're still traveling through Japan and I'm hoping I can attach short montages to the end of these videos, so stick around after this videos to see that. And I'll talk to you later.

Miss Ann's Ghetto Burger

    The local news in NYC today had a feature on Miss Ann's "Ghetto Burger" which the Wall Street Journal called "The Best Burger in America." That's a serious burger. The Ghetto Burger is made with ground beef, bacon, tomato, lettuce, cheese, seasoning, mustard, mayonnaise, onions and chili served on oven-toasted buns. The news story indicated that Miss Ann was looking to sell and basically get out of the burger business. A related video may be viewed below.
