APPLE 23.10.12 EVENT: iPad Mini 
Much like the iPhone5 event,  this is the announcement that everyone was expecting, but for some reason still seemed to be unsure of. What is it? Just a smaller version of something that already exists. A device meant to directly compete with tablets from Samsung and Google. It’s an iPad, for people that thought the iPad was too big…so…my mom. This was made for my mom. I’m more interested in how this upgrades their line of products. Notice how there is no OG iPad on there? Yeah, that’s bad news for a guy like me, who is still perfectly happy with my first version of this great product.

E3 2012 [Day -1]
Wii U(niverse)

So apparently people are more excited for this years event than I thought…jumping the gun and unloading stuff on us two whole days before it actually starts! Thanks Nintendo for the heads up…anyway…
I LOVE what they’re doing here; instead of trying to compete with other tablets, they are taking what works on the 3DS, the Wii, Kinect, and the iPad and combining it into one solid entertainment platform. Last year I was skeptical, this year they solidified me as a buyer.

if you want to see the funny “zombie” commercial here it is…

Coffee & Multitasking v.83

THE “LATE” EDITION
Sorry, I’ve been busy with things like school, work, concerts, editing, Gears 3, and oh my gosh have you seen Terra Nova yet??! So…here’s my attempt to share what’s been in my browser this week.

SCIENCE:
Time Travel [telegraph.uk]

Seems that the good folks at CERN (makers of the Hadron Collider) have found a way to travel faster than the speed of light. Which means you’ll be able to wear your new BttF Nike “Mags” in your sweet time hopping Delorian!

Seeing Dreams [slatest.com]
Researchers at Berkeley have figured out how to recreate digital images mapped from the brain, in hopes of one day being able to turn dreams into video!

CULTURE:
Wall Street Occupation [dailywhat]

I don’t know the whole story, but I do know that when peaceful demonstrators are abused by corrupted cops, the story needs to be spread. Stay informed!

COMICS:
DC Comixxx [i09.com]
[aishiteru]
Along with the reboot of their entire comicbook franchise came new beefed up version of men like Superman and Greenlantern, however, the women (like Catwoman and Starfire) were turned into sex-craved, half naked, straight up slutty versions of their former selves…and the geekdom is furious!

Walking Dead Teaser[i09.com]
A new photo gallery has gone up showing off all the lovely characters of Season 2.

TECH:
Kindle Tablet [gizmodo]

The new Kindle “Fire” is something that (imo) presents a decent rival for the iPad.
