E3 is over

It’s been a crazy couple of days. See why in the 16punches galleries here.

I’m super swagged and super excited to play some of these games when they are released later this year. The big deal of the show was definitely Nintendo’s Wii. The line to get in to the Wii area looped around for as far as the eye could see. I heard it was a 6 hour wait. I gave up. I really really wanted to try it out but not at the expense of missing the rest of the show.

Even Nintendo suffers: no one in that line gets to try the new DS titles, the DS lite, the Brain Game… what a bummer.

That’s another story though; if you want you can read about it here. One of the nice features of the Tiger Direct website is that the home page is filled with daily specials. The one that caught my eye was the Corsair Flash Voyager. Continue reading “Rugged Convenience: Corsair Flash Voyager USB 2.0 Flash Memory Drive”
