We hear a lot about potential iPhone killers, but if you're looking for tons of space including a Micro SD slot, stereo speakers, a better camera with a flash, GPS, flash-enabled browsing, and a big 2.8 inch LCD screen, you just might have found it.

There has been a mighty wind of bad tidings sweeping the internets because of X-Play's review of 'Killzone 2.' Adam would like some time to explain himself in the AOTS forum, and so here it is.

If you're wondering why robots in movies are only designed to kill, we've got some great robot news for you. These guys are designed to help the common good and they don't come equipped with any ballistic guns or self-destruct bombs.

Layla Kayleigh is here to get you to the end of the work week with today's Feed, including stories about a Google library on your iPhone, the white spaces in your broadband, and wi-fi at the Apple Store.

Today's Blogwatch is dedicated to the best toy blogs on the net, so I've decided to compile a list of the top five favorite toys from my childhood. Take a heartfelt walk down memory lane with me, won't you?

Creepy Crawlers - The selling point was, you could become a pint-sized mad scientist who used a goo formula, mold and creature formation pod to create all sorts of weird insects. It was fun for a while, but when I realized it was essentially the male equivalent of an easy bake oven, and I couldn't even eat the final product, I chucked it post-haste.

Ghostbusters - How stoked are you that there's a next-gen Ghostbusters game coming out? Not as stoked as I was playing with The Real Ghostbusters toys from Kenner. The thrill of pulling the Ecto-1 out of the scale replica of the Ghostbusters' fire house or tackling the glow-in-the-dark Stay Puft Marshmallow Man with the four specter hunters themselves, or even using a kid-sized proton pack to send ghosts off to oblivion was unmatched until I discovered the pleasures of the fairer sex.

It's true! Well, at least that's the story with this awesome Barack Obama action figure. Armed with multiple hands, neckties, and other accessories, this action figure lets your imagination run wild as Obama negotiates peace in the Middle East, croon at a karaoke lounge, and take on vile Sith lords.

In your dreams, who is the ultimate action-figure rival for Obama? Personally, I'd love to see him face off with Godzilla. That would be cool.

Ah, Superbowl Sunday is just around the corner. The eve of a monday morning where dudes show up to work hung-over and bloated, or with broken appendages, an empty bank account, and a bookie named "Vinnie" on his call records. Apparently it involves some sort of odd game of territory determined by posession of an oblong object made of pigskin, which is apparently very popular in these parts. Well, another incentive for people to tune in to the big game has always been the commercials. This year will be no exception, as it appears that we will be graced with a slew of new movie trailers. Confirmed so far:

  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
  • Star Trek
  • G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
  • Angels and Demons (Sequel to The Da Vinci Code)
  • Monsters vs. Aliens (Dreamworks animation)
  • Land of the Lost (70's remake/Will Ferrell vehicle)
  • Fast & Furious (The new Fast and the Furious sequel)
  • Up (Pixar's next animation project)

While a new X-Men Origins: Wolverine spot is also highly speculated, it is also believed that we could be seeing new outings from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (where ***** kills **********), Terminator Salvation, and of course, Watchmen (Fox's new toy.)

Are you ready fo sum trailersss?!

Posted January 7, 2009 - By kijibe

Mad Catz has announced some new toys at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

First, you now have even more choices when it comes to plugging up your ears when you need free hands and you gotta talk to mom on your drive home.

Mad Catz has released its AirDrives FIT Interactive Earphones and AirDrives FIT Interactive Earphones for iPhone.

It uses a patent pendidng InAir Technology which allows you to listen to the tunes but still be aware when someone is creeping up behind you. There are no frames in their earphones. Instead there's a wire loop that fits around the ears that's adjustable. Great for when you have your Blublockers or bike helmet on.

The AirDrives FIT earphones also has an integrated microphone that let's your pause your music to take those important calls, too.

They're priced at $59.99 -- yeah, a bit steep just for a pair of darn earphones, but let's see if the sonic quality makes it worth the price.
