Fahrenheit 9/11 P2PIt seems that Michael Moore is either a really brash SOB, or really has it out for Bush to the point where he doesn't even care about profit:

"I don't agree with copyright laws, and I don't have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it ... as long as they're not trying to make a profit off my labor," Moore said in a recent interview. "I make these movies and books and TV shows because I want things to change, and so the more people who get to see them, the better."

Okay Michael, if you say so.
Hot Tech DealsGet them while you can! Circuit City has officially put a bunch of major video games on clearance for a cool $5 per title! Of course, with a deal like this everything is flying off the shelves. If you can get to a Circuit City that has any of the games left, you can definately benefit from the huge mark downs. The prices are not marked, and will only show up when the item is scanned.

NOTE: Some Circuit City stores will not be honoring these prices until July 17th.

Game Boy Advance SPIn the wake of the soon to come Nintendo DS, I thought we would take a look at the last handheld released by Nintendo, the Game Boy Advance SP. This little peice of hardware really is "more than meets the eye".

When former Nintendo monarch Hiroshi Yamauchi stepped down, Saturu Iwata took over as Nintendo CEO. His first order of business was to do away with the childish image many had with Nintendo and its consoles. Being that the Game Boy franchise had long been the biggest breadwinner at Nintendo, Iwata decided to soup up the product line. His goal was simple: Get a Nintendo Game Boy back in the hands of adults.

Motorola A630Motorola sure knows how to kick off a product release. Motorola launched the new A630 at the Hotel Gansevoort in New York City. In the midst of such celebrities as Russell Simmons, Molly Shannon, and Tyson Beckford, and Jacob the Jeweler, Motorola set the stage for a huge debut for their latest mobile phone. The A630 seems to be the perfect blend of a mobile phone and a Sidekick/Blackberry type of device. To read the press release and see more pictures of the celebs, click the link.

iRiver H320People have been waiting for iRiver's updated hard drive audio players. Finally, they are now available in Japan and Europe, and reviews are starting to show up. So far, things are very positive. The device just looks sexy, with a sleek body and color screen. Not only does it play your favorite tunes, but it can also display photos in full color and play FM radio. If anyone wants to make a serious run at the iPod (which seems to be the theme of the day), this is the way to do it.

Dell DJ Digital JukeboxIt seems as if everyone is gunning for the iPod. Now through August 11, Dell is now offering a special $100 rebate on the Dell Digial Jukebox 15GB if you send them your old iPod along with the rebate form. I don't know how well this promotion will do, considering that only getting $100 for any functioning iPod doesn't sound like a good deal at all. However, if you happen to have a broken one lying around...

Sony Walkman NW-HD1Sony is heading into battle as they become the latest company trying to take the digital audio player market share from the iPod. The new Sony Walkman NW-HD1 offers 20 GB of storage space, and weighs just 3.8 ounces. This is lighter than the larger iPod, and just a tiny bit bigger than the iPod mini. The device will be able to store 13,000 songs according to Sony, which if true is an amazing feat at 20 GB. Apple's 40 GB iPod holds approximately 10,000 songs. In addition, it boasts a 30 hour battery life. It is expected that the device, which launches in Japan on July 10, will sell for less than $400 in the United States.

So are there any negatives to Sony's device? Well, continuing their tradition of creating their own standards, the Walkman NW-HD1 only plays Sony ATRAC files. What does this mean to you? Your MP3 files, along with any music purchased through any online music store (aside from the abysmal Sony Connect) will have to be converted to ATRAC format if you want to use it on this device. I'm calling it now - because it can't even play MP3's, the Walkman NW-HD1 will be a failure.

Jakks TV GamesRemember the simple days of gaming? Back when it wasn't all about graphics and sound, but rather about...making fun of the cheesy graphics and sound? I digress. Either way, Jakks Pacific has decided to bring back the favorites of yesteryear in a simple and easy plug and play format. Your old favorites from Namco, Atari, Activision and more come in a joystick pre-loaded with games. Plug the joystick into an RCA input, and it will seem as if you and Ms. Pac-Man were never separated.
