Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard

So I was cooling off at this Staples after walking two hours to deposit 5 dollars. I saw something that caught my attention.

This little puppy here is the Logitech Solar powered keyboard. This keyboard does not require AA batteries and it can be powered by the light from your work space! It is being said that when this keyboard gets charged it will last for about a month or two. It also comes with a program that monitors the power level left in the keyboard. This little guy will sent you back $71.99. The MAC version will run you for about $60

The LG Xnote A530

Sorry guys for the lack of updates, I promise to pick up the slack! Anyway, Today I found out that  LG has now revealed the their first 3D laptop in Korea; the LG Xnote A530. The information is very limited right now but what it is know is that the laptop will be powered by Intel's second gen i7 and 8GBs of memory, the graphiscs provider is Nvidia's GT555M and it features a 15 in display. It also comes with two cameras so one can take 2D or 3D picture and/or video. The only downside this laptop has is that one needs those  3D glasses for the 3D-ness. No price has been set yet but this little thing looks interesting.

Fake Pool

This might not be a movie review of a tech thing but it is awesome! It is a fake pool.
The surface is filled with 4 to 5 inches of water to make it look like a realistic pool.

From my understanding, there are these two glass walls with water in between them. The pool has the size of 280x402x697cm.

Very insane! I will look for awesome stuff like this to show you all.

Little update

Sorry guys for the lack of posts. Been going thru some personal problems. But I am in the process of fixing it.

Source Code

Summary:  Source code is about this US Army Helicopter pilot (Colter Stevens) whose last memory is flying this helicopter over Afghanistan.  He has wakes up in this person’s body in a train in Chicago then the train explodes and he wake up in a pod. He is instructed to go back and find out who the bomber is.
Jake Gyllenhaal, - Colter Stevens
Michelle Monaghan – Christina Warren
Vera Farmiga – Collen Goodwin
Jeffrey Wright – Dr. Rutledge
Russell Peters – Max Denoff
My Thoughts:  Source code was a decent movie. It is supposed to be some kind of science fiction/ detective type of movie. I didn’t have that much faith in this movie but I watched It anyway. The acting in this movie was good. I liked Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance and his chemistry with Michelle Monaghan.  Now this movie is about Colter Stevens  and he is in this pod that sends him into this train that is about to blow up, however he only has 8 minutes before  he is sent back to his original body.  Because of that this movie starts to repeat its self, a lot. I honestly could of taken a nap and wouldn’t miss much. What bothered me the most was the ending. I thought it was going on way. I won’t spoil this too much but it involves a freeze frame type of thing. It honestly made me sad and I thought it was great way to end it. But nope. They had to have some kind of Hollywood ending.  Over all the movie is good, not great but good.

Pros:  The acting was good, it was visually appealing, it has Russell Peters.
Cons:  Repeats its self a lot.
Verdict:  Rental.

My future Computer

This laptop you see above is called the Dell Latitude XT3. It run on Intel Core i3, i5 or i7, has a HD webcam, Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU, also Gigabit Ethernet port, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, optional mobile broadband support, and of course a VGA and HDMI. The beauty of this thing is that it can turn in to a table and it looks sweet. I want one of these for school so I can write note down and not waste paper. From what I've heard about this little guy is that it has good pressure sensitive interface. What that means is that it will know how hard you press down on the screen. I have not found any price for it but keep a look out!

Rango Review.

Today I will be reviewing Rango. I honestly did not want to see this movie when it came out. I thought it was a kiddy movie and it didn't look that appealing to me. However I went over to my friend's house and they decided to play this movie. I must say I was impressed.
Summary: Rango is about this run of the mill chameleon who accidentally ends up in this little town named Dirt; who is in direr need of a sheriff.

Cast: Johnny Depp, Timothy Olyphant,

My Thoughts: This movie is beautiful, ascetically it is great. The sand, the sun, the details on many of the characters were done just awesomely. Very realistically. As for the content of the movie, I must say that it surprised me on how good it ended up being. My standards were really low on this movie but it met them and went a bit above. The humor was very well done the story telling was good the music and cinematography was very well done. It really gave it a classical western feel. One of my grips was that the movie was a bit slow. Too much dialogue for kids I say.  
The acting was great. I honestly didn't think that it was Johnny Depp voicing Rango. Johnny Depp really did a great job bringing this character to life. However, my personal favorite character in this movie was Rattlesnake Jake. Very good movie, done very well. Definitely a rental.

Pros: Visually well done, great acting, good humor, good action.
Cons: Might drag on a bit.
Verdict: Rental.

The Pic3D

I was snooping around and I came across this really interesting device; It is called the Pic3D. The Pic3D is a transparent sheet that one can place on top of a screen (for your tv or mobile phone) and will give it the 3D without glasses effect. So far it only comes for 12.1'', 15.6'', 21.5'' and 23'' screens, and the iPad2 and iPhone. The iPhone version will go for 25 dollars and the 23in will go for 186 dollars. Now the only downside I see is that it will only work if you download this application that is on Global Wave's website. The application comes with a built-in player and even works with some YouTube videos!

Razer Switchblade

Holy crap I found this neato device. I must be slow or something.

This little bugger is called the Razer Switchblade. It has a 7 inch multi-touch display, has dimensions of 172mm x 115mm x 25mm, and the keyboard is full LCD, it is also powered by an Intel Atom 1.7 GHz z690. It also runs on windows 7 and it is made for portable gameplay. I do not know anymore details, and I have never heard of it. I am very interested in this and I will keep track with this and will post an update once I get more information. All I can say not is that it looks awesome.

Stake Land is an interesting movie. It takes place in the United States that has been swept by a vampiric epidemic. It follows this vampire slayer, Mister (Nick Damici) and this young boy, Martin (Conor Paolo) in a journey towards paradise. 

My thoughts: This movie was very very interesting. The first thing that separates it from other vampire movies is that they act very much like zombies; which didn't really bother me. The movie, at first, reminded me a lot like Zombieland. It had this apocalyptic feel to it and it even had narration through out the movie. However, as the movie progressed it started to take it's own form. It was a slow start but it took off in a huge fashion. I fell in love with this movie. You can feel the desperation, sadness, and the anger all while keeping you on the edge of your seat. It really put me through a thrill ride.
 The acting was great, Nick Damici put quiet  a performance but the person that I think really brought this movie to the forefront was Conor Paolo. Conor Paolo's character brought such a pure innocence to the movie and bounced off great with Nick Damici's character. 
There are a few negatives to this movie. You have the zombie-vampires, the movie feels a bit dragged  out, and it doesn't help that a few questions are not answered by the end of the movie. However, overall it was a great movie. I recommend it.

A Thank You Letter

I just wanted to thank everyone that took the time to read my blog post. I didn't think I was going to have such a great time reading so many different blogs about so many interesting topics. I felt like it was going to be work and not really like it but everyone's support really gave me a boost. So to everyone that took the time to respond and read I thank you.

If anyone have any recommendation please feel free to leave a comment in any of my posts and I would definitively take it into consideration and would love to review it.

a SUPER review

For my first review I am going to be reviewing the movie Super. Super is about this average man ( Rainn Wilson) whose wife (Liv Tyler) falls under the influence of a drug dealer (Kevin Bacon). He then transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, though he lacks for heroic skills.

My thoughts: When I saw this trailer to Super I was very excited because I have enjoyed many of Rainn Wilson's work. I love him as Dwight from The Office and as various characters in different shows. The trailer made my think this was going to be one of those funny movies that go unnoticed. However was I in for a hell of a surprise. I loved this movie completely it is dark, funny, confusing at times but it was a great ride. They really made me invest emotion into these characters. The best part? The twist they give you. I haven't been this moved by a movie since forever. Liv Tyler did a good job in this movie and was freaking hot as a drug addict. Kevin Bacon was great as always. He just has that bad guy look. Ellen Page was very cute in this movie and her character might not be very one's cup of tea but I think that her character development was great. Over all it was a great movie. Check it out!
