Google Maps Navigation hacked for extra-American use (Engadget)

Nov 23rd 2009 9:35AM F' yeah.. had this working a little while ago. Very easy install if you're already on the path of using modded roms on your G1.

Yes I look at my G1 not as a phone mostly but as a project in hackery, that just continually makes it better even with its sub par hardware and sluggish initial performance with the standard t-mobile g1 image. Until you can hack the droid I'd have no reason to upgrade my phone...

Project Natal price to launch with room to drop (Joystiq)

Oct 7th 2009 11:49AM I'd spend 120 with a compelling game for natal.. not much more than that.. but it has to come with a game thats good.. Seriously .. a very refined type of wii sports thing would be a good compliment to it..

VIDEO: People get all jumpy when it comes to their new BMWs (Autoblog)

Oct 1st 2009 10:21AM I jumped into my Z4 at some point.. so i get it.

VholdR ContourHD1080p helmet cam announced, we go hands-on (Engadget)

Sep 29th 2009 12:21PM I'd still prefer the waterpoof casing that the GoPro series comes with when mounting... But then again i want to get one that I can use mountain biking, skiing, kayaking, water skiing, and snorkeling .... not just mountain biking and skiing...

Frankfurt 2009: 2010 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid can't get any greener (Autoblog)

Sep 21st 2009 12:24PM It doesn't even mention when it might be a reality. That just makes me mad. Either give us a projection of when it'll be real.. like 2011 model year or 2012 or something .. or just don't show all this crap.. the specs they say are totally imaginary until they have something real in production.

Only reason they're doing this is because the Volt has gotten a lot of press lately.

Zune HD gaming and app downloads confirmed: Twitter, Facebook, and 3D games on the way (updated) (Engadget)

Sep 15th 2009 12:15PM If i can get xbox live achievements for games on the Zune, then i'm buying it.

RedLynx preparing Trials HD downloadable content (Joystiq)

Sep 10th 2009 10:06AM It took me a while to do hard, and the extreme levels just kick my ass.. i can't finish one of them.. i love the game though... Hopefully the DLC is a varying level of difficulty because if they go to Insane, i'll cry

Interview: Xbox's Aaron Greenberg on the $300 Elite and all things Xbox (Joystiq)

Sep 2nd 2009 10:18AM I sort of disagree with the categorization that the netflix instant view on is far better than the xbox experience as it is now. Yes you can search netflix, but I've never found any search feature that lets me only search instant view netflix.. If somebody knows how to do that please reply and prove me wrong, but in general I've just had to "hope" that the thing I'm searching for comes up with an instant view tab when i search for things on that site. With that in mind .. i still wish and xbox had better searches than they do now specifically for instant content...

Rumormill: Acura planning to take on BMW 1, Audi A3 with new RSX? (Autoblog)

Sep 1st 2009 4:34PM oh this could be really boring..

Hands-on with The Beatles: Rock Band story mode (Joystiq)

Aug 14th 2009 11:36AM No a rare vinyl is not enough. My problem with the way they've been doing the downloaded albums is I've heard more about what isn't going to be on the disk when it comes out than what actually is.. Rock Band 2 came with some 80 songs.. thats worth the cash to me.. The Beatles Rock Band needs to have a substantial playlist on the disk, and if it doesn't I'm not sure how much i want to buy it just for the sake of playing beatles songs.

The whole story mode idea has me intrigued and its making the game more worth it to me. I was really excited hearing the idea of Beatles Rock Band at first... but then every press release since except maybe this one, has been a downer... Considering very popular albums won't be in the game at release... The fact that you can only play the beatles music in the beatles rock band... (which really sucks by the way, because I don't want to swap disks at a party because all the sudden we want a variety outside the beatles).. and the lack of a confirmed launch setlist....
