Started watching the show Heroes today, and i must say.... already by the first episode, im pretty impressed....... And in order just to keep blogging (and getting back to the show) i just wanna say: !Hmmmmmm..... This is actually so good, it might end up getting cancelled!" (more about what i meant with that later). Ohhhh and one last thing..... dont you just hate (sorry, "Dislike") people that chew with their mouths open. Oh my god.... i freakin´ hate the noises people can bring on within their heads, rampaging thru their daily meals like semi paralyzed zombie idiots imitating washingmachines without even knowing it. Its mindblowing! Now.. close that damn mouth! You hear!? (its the 21st century dammit... and no! it doesnt taste better just because you have your mouth open). He....

Anyhow, wanna beat the noises? Watch some tv-shows. Check out Heroes: Here. (and for you europeans..... since its not out here yet, torrents is the way to go. Youre gonna end up buying the dvd anyway when it comes out). Peace out.

Since last year sometime, dear old Commodore have been working on something quite exciting.... Called the Commodore Gravel. A portable media player and wifi enabled "remote"/handheld advanced mediacenter if you must. Not just for the new home, but also for the media craving loonies on the go. The design aspect is great, the technological bar set high...... So look out microsoft, look out iriver and others out there..... this could be a somehow sweeter thing than previously expected, and h*** its freakin´ Commodore.

But..... You know.... they havent been too generous with info on how far they really are......... untill..... guess what? Just a couple of days ago this exciting new video popped up on youtube posted by the commodore bloggers. Hmmm... Check it out!

Keep an eye on the Commodore world blog

The sansa view...

Sandisk, whom had great succes in 2006 with their wonderful Sansa e series dap (digital audio player), launched their new flash memory based video player - sansa view, at Ces last week..... And i must admit.... i really love it... and the fact that its an actual design object, flash based even...... Anyhow for you guys out there who hasnt seen it yet, heres some a previews of it!:

basically its an 8gb device updateable with 4gb cards (perhaps even 8gb cards very soon). So i guess you could assume that Sandisk definently will be in your "grill" in the future (if you understand how great, pretty and cheap their neat stuff is). 299$ for a device like the sansa view, is pretty favourable...... dont you think?..... looking forward to seing more from the sandisk dudes. Most definently.

Yup!....... Buy one, right: Here

Cowon Iaudio! whats up?

Like any other semi "tech" geek ive been sitting in front of my comp following CES (Consumer electronics show) in Las vegas last week. Cowon, my favourite company when it comes to media players, showed some really nice stuff, so i am excited to see more from them. Anyhow.... i searched around alot of websites to find pics and news about various CES related things (especially Cowon), when i suddenly stumbled upon this strange Cowon device, which i assume is a mockup (fake) made/posted by a fan. Anyhow i really loved it, since it would be cool to see Cowon aim for the smaller designs aswell. They do have a new touchscreen player out called D2m though they lacked to reveal a real succesor to the popular Iaudio A2. So maybe this new mystical "fake", could inspire them to do a A2 mini. Anyhow heres the stuff:

More pics: here (David_in_asia2006 at Flickr). Interesting.

Children of... Sunshine...

Being a huge "post-apocalyptic" soul myself (???), it rocks my world to see the brits (thru mexican/aussie director Alfonso CuarĂ³n) at it again when it comes to the post-apocalypse. For some reason they seem to have the apocalypse nailed down, to a somewhat way more believeable and not ridicolous level, when they do their films. What is it that makes them just a little bit better at these films..... Why is Terry Gilliams Brazil and 12 monkeys, 2 of the best and most original sci-fi/p.a (post-apocalypse) films out there. What is it exactly that grows from the soil, or flows in the water in the UK that enables them to come up with such outrageous ideas and different storylines. What is it that makes it possible for Danny Boyle to pick up the Zombie genre in 2002 (a somewhat embarrassing and dangerous turf to muster) with his 28 days later, and actually doing, what he did so good. A original piece of film with a delicate "non-zombie but still zombie" twist...... Im having trouble figuring that out. Well i must admit, there is far between the real masterpieces, so hopefully Children of men will make it, and claim its rightfull territory. I definently advise people to go see it, whenever it might arrive to its respectable areas.

Stills from Children of men

Later this year (soon i hope) we will also witness the without a doubt far most ambitious work of Danny boyle, thru his socalled "Sunshine". Just like Children of men, a definite p.a theme is haunting the depths of this project, and just like 28 days later, with a far more experimental touch of advanced science and human hopelessness . I cannot wait to see this film....... And would dare bet my right arm, it will shake the very foundation of mainstream pre-determination.

stills from Sunshine by Danny Boyle:

Looks to be a great year for people with dark eyes on our socalled fantastic future. Check out the respectible sites of each movie: children of men and Sunshine. There.... and there........ok.

Nice new Iriver s10...

Wauv im posting something...... Ehhh anyhoo. Im a huge fan of french designer philippe starck, and i used to be the proud owner of one his beautiful minimalist wristwatches (unfortunantly it got nicked). Anyhow..... It pleases my sad soul to see Korean company Iriver present yet another fantastic design item of theirs. This time presenting an updated version of their s10 player, available sometime soon. A wearable "dock"....bluetooth enabled (for headphones). Wauv, indeed.... nice.

The first s10 model.

The new one (and new accessory)

A phillippe Starck watch (thought you might wanna see that too)

I dont think its a ripp off. But its definently the kind of minimalism i would wanna throw my consumptive spirit straight into. Iriver does it again..... fantastic little thing.
