PS3 Wireless Keyboard. I want one!

Take a look at this keyboard attachment to the PS3's wireless controller. It will make it much easier to make fun of the people you kill in Call of Duty 4 or Resistance 2.

That's a day-1 buy for me.

Wireless Hacking, The Nice Way.

I happened to stay at a Four Points hotel where they offered free wireless internet in the lobby. However, you have to pay extra to use the in-room internet. They provided an access point inside each room. However, I couldn't pick up the lobby's signal from my room. Which let me to think outside the box. If I only had a bigger wifi antenna!

I connected the access point inside my room to my laptop using an ethernet cable and reconfigured it to work as a wireless client. Its now converted to work as a huge external-powered antenna (compared to my laptop's internal antenna). And now i can pick up the signal from lobby. Free internet!!

Blackberry not as good as Nokia

Blackberry fans i challenge you. Please come forward and proof what I'm saying is wrong.

Nokia E71 is better than ANY blackberry mobile phone, For the following reasons:

  • Both check your email with the same efficiency but Nokia E71 downloads email faster.
  • Nokia E71 also lets you get your Gmail and Yahoo mail the same way you get your work email.
  • Nokia E71 opens more attachment types.
  • Blackberry in Kuwait does not have 3G.
  • Nokia's Symbian OS has a massive software catalog.
  • E71 is lighter than blackberry.
  • The web browser in Blackberry is pathetic and extremely basic. It will never load a page as complex as Try the browser on E71 to see the difference.
  • Blackberry's clickwheel is annoying.
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with flash? Yup only in Nokia.
  • E71 has a very fast processor and large internal memory with memory cards support up to 8GB.
  • Wifi, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0, "normal" headphones jack, USB, you name it, its in Nokia E71.

Just show me one feature in Blackberry that is not in the E71. Open challenge, guys. Bring it on!!
