Nvidia sure was rather late lately, in offering the latest technology. It took them nearly a year to officially release the Fermi ‘woodscrew’ GTX400-series cards to counter AMD’s hot-selling DirectX11 graphic card the HD5000-series. What’s more, they lack a selling point to counter AMD’s Eyefinity multi-display technology. Despite the much delays and controversial, Nvidia is ready to proof that their 3D Vision Surround (3D-VS) is not just a ‘3D Eyefinity’.

Mozilla has unleashed the Firefox 4 Pre-beta to public. Nicknamed “Minefield”, this 4.0bpre comes with a new tabs-on-top interface and some slight changes on the screen. This is a rather “very-early” release for early-adopter, and is mostly for developers. But there’s no harm trying out and helping the community on reporting bugs. So, if you’d like to give it a try (rather risky try though, as it’s a beta anyway), head over here, and look for file name similar to this “firefox-4.0b2pre.en-US", and search for one that’s suitable for your platform.
I’ve to admit; I didn’t watch New Moon and am not going to watch Eclipse. Why? Well I walk into the cinema sometime in 2008 watching a movie called Twilight, anticipating another “Underworld” style vampire versus werewolf versus hybrid movie, and regretted. I didn’t notice the movie’s poster, and only saw an ‘all-too-common star-war style’ push of a vehicle by the pretty face vampire boy. Obviously I’m not attracted by a vampire-human love story. Oddly I’m actually anticipating ‘Sex in the City 2’.
Anyway, just head over to YouTube by clicking on the video, and play the Pokémon-style 8-bit interactive game.

The Blackberry B100 Case is designed by Peter Herman, which will turn your Blackberry into a retro device.
“This Blackberry B100 case was inspired by – and is names after – the criminal mastermind from Dutch 80’s children’s show ‘ Bassie & Adriaan’. How’s that for nostalgia! Also inspired by IBM thinkpads and practically any 80’s mobile phone. It’s soo retro that it is contemporary again. Soo ugly that you will want one. Oh and the antenna may not be functional, it is retractable!”
