According to Boing Boing, a Japanese gamer known as Sal9000 decided his relationship with his girlfriend to the next level. His girlfriend, Nene Anegasaki, is not real.
Nene is a video game character from a game called Love Plus. In the game, players go on virtual dates with characters like Nene (who is no longer available). Part of this means taking your new girlfriend shopping, and even kissing the screen.
This is the part where I’m supposed to comment about this and perhaps mention something Christian about this.
Let me just leave you with this: when Tomb Raider got popular, millions of gamers dreamed about going out with Lara Croft. I wonder if she’s looking to settle down with someone who isn’t Brad Pitt.
Start with Swype. Think of it as a way to do texting with one finger that never leaves the touchscreen keypad. Apparently, Samsung Omnia II is going to have this feature. I could change the world of texting.
Speaking of texting, some guy has created the Textimator, a Dance Dance Revolution game that faces off texters against each other.
For those who love the Vado HD by Creative, then you should know that they have a third generation of it.
Ostendo is selling the CRVD, a curved screen display that cost a pretty penny. Find out how much here.

Palm Pre owners will be pleased to know that there is a new homebrew software known as the Precorder that will enable some 480 x 320 pixel video recording at 30fps. Unfortunately, it is an alpha, so there are some bugs, such as not being able to preview what you are recording. The videos can be played back on the Pre’s video player in formats of MPEG-4, H.263, and H264/AVC.
You should be able to preorder the Precorder at the Wiki page.
Have you ever noticed that just before the holiday season rolls around, there is some big item that everyone wants?
Think Nintendo 64. Think Sony Playstation 2.
This year, it might be the Nook. Yes, that awesome reader from Barnes and Noble is out of stock, according to the company website.
Of course, none have even been shipped yet, and looks like no one will be able to get their hands on it, at least not this year. Yeah, if you order it right now, you should see it come your way come January 4th at the earliest.
The same thing happened with the Kindle last year from Amazon. Many speculate that Barnes and Noble tried to compete with Amazon and was not able to keep up with the inventory. By the way, there are plenty of Kindles for sale, and would get to you before the holiday.
