A Mouse based on final fantasy Gunblade

By looking at the Mouse it seems Designer Andrey Chirkov is a big fan of Final Fantasy. His design concept takes a cue from the Final fantasy Gunblade. But to me as the gunblade looks tough and menacing enough, this Mouse would snap apart with a little force of a fat guy's finger playing a combat game.
Nice Design and looks though.

Microsoft's Pressure-Sensitive Keyboard : A Whole new way of typing


The pressure-sensitive keyboard Microsoft has cooking up promises to make your typing far more efficient,but it still is a prototype.

For example by using the keyboard we can change the font size by applying a variable pressure on the key and typing errors could be reduced by gauging the pressure applied to simultaneously pressed keys in order to determine intent. A varied pressure on the key would be making gaming experience much more interesting.

Microsoft will be showing off the technology at the User Interface Software and Technology conference taking place in Canada this October.At the conference, students will be given a sample keyboard and asked to compete with one another in an effort to find applications for the technology that are useful, well implemented or creative.

Her name is Kylie as i read in a review, she's so cute people will be glued when they see her but still back music is little ridiculous. So as Kylie says: "I'm a PC and more happy is coming." lets see what people think of it.

Apple introduced its new apple Ipod nano with a built in camera and for that extra edge a polished aluminum finish and some new trendy range of colors to choose from. The new ipod contains a camera that is a H.264 VGA video, 640 by 480 pixels, up to 30 frames per second with AAC audio.
The ipod nano comes with a capacity of 8GB and upto 16GB with a flash card holds up to 2,000 or 4,000 songs in 128-Kbps AAC format. It comes with a 2.2-inch (diagonal) TFT display which looks preety fine to me with a 240-by-376-pixel resolution at 204 pixels per inch. All in all it looks a nice package but a VGA camera doesnt fullfill the requirement which is long awaited with a iPod.
