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.
The new Olympus 1050 SW is a point and shoot with a few interesting features, one of them being something called "tap control" that allows you to take a picture by tapping any side of the camera. It's also waterproof, freeze-proof, and drop-proof.
Legendary comic book icon and toy impresario Todd McFarlane stopped by to guest host Fresh Ink Online this week, treating us to a history lesson in the comics that inspired him and giving fans a sneak peak at the upcoming issue of his influential comic Spawn (issue #187). You'll even see vintage issues of X-Men, The Tomb of Dracula and Akira from Todd's own personal collection!
Make sure to check Todd out on Attack of the Show tonight at 7 p.m. and get an exclusive tour of his amazing McFarlane Toys factory. They even make an action figure of AOTS correspondent Alison Haislip!
Adam Sessler isn't one to take criticism lying down, so he responded to Kevin Pereira's criticism of Fable II being picked for Game of the Year in Tuesday's X-Play's Best of 2008. Sessler has accepted Pereira's challenge, and is poised to head to Attack of the Show to provide a response. Exactly what that response will be, we have no idea, but, according to Mr. Sessler, "It's on like f***ing Donkey Kong."
And that, friends, is on.
Oh, it's on now. On today's Attack of the Show, host Kevin Pereira called out X-Play for their choice of Fable II as their Game of the Year in yesterdays X-Play Best of 2008 special. Kevin thought that Fallout 3, LittleBigPlanet, or Left 4 Dead would have been the better choice, and should be chosen for the award.
He's challenged Adam Sessler, specifically. We have no idea what that means, or what it might lead to, but we're a little scared of the intensity that Pereira brought to the whole thing. Check it out.
Our Joe Lynch is a very lucky individual. Last week, he was invited by Warner Bros. to check out the Blu-Ray edition of The Dark Knight, which is in stores today. Not only did he get a preview of the Batman-y goodness, but he also got to try out a new bonus feature on the disc, which will allow fans to provide their own commentary for you to watch, to make your film experience different every time.
Using only a webcam hooked up to your Blu-Ray player, you can stream video of yourself talking about The Dark Knight, which you can then upload using BD Live, so that others can watch. And, yes, the PlayStation 3 will support this feature, as well, so grab a webcam and start talking, bub.
