Well, I went ahead and ordered myself a brand new MacBook Pro. It’s scheduled to ship in “Feburary”. This is going to be the first computer that I bought myself. It’s also going to be something like 10x faster than my current 1GHz 17” AlBook.

I’ll post another update once it arrives.

So Nintendo has finally released information about the controller for their new Revolution system. And the controller sure is different. It looks more like a TV remote with the ability to attach various peripherals (like an analog stick) to it. It’s also wireless, has rumble, and the system can detect where the remote is pointed (at the screen), movement of the remote (including forward and back), and twisting of the remote. I can just imagine how an FPS will be on this system. This is going to make for some very interesting games, and will definitely make the Revolution not a competitor to PS3 and XBox360 but rather a separate must-have platform. So if you haven’t seen it yet, go read the article on IGN.

This has got to be one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time! A demonstration of the SenseTable by the Tangible Media Group project at MIT. Slashdot has the goods here.
