Freakin' Friday! Panasonic Home Theater

panhomethe.jpg

Time was when a home theater seemed only for the Steven Spielbergs of the world, but prices are dropping, allowing almost anyone to get a decent one for less than $500.00. Case in point, Panasonic's SC-BTT370. The home entertainment system has 5.1 Channel audio, 3D and Blu-ray video. Other features include 2-way tabletop speakers, VIERA Cast for Netflix and Skype, built-in Wifi and a 3D effects controller that lets you adjust the depth.

Freakin' Friday! 3DS Test Run by Jimmy Fallon

Amidst the hoopla surrounding the release of the 3DS, many critics are quick to shut it down on its usability or difficulty to play, but Jimmy Fallon was filled with glee when he got the opportunity to play with it last week. (But come to think of it, he is always gleeful.)

In its second week out, the portable game system sold 50,710 units, breaking the record of the PSP as the fastest selling. No doubt many of those were from people that can't resist shooting the faces of their closest buds.

When Nintendo launches its 3DS March 25, they are adding an extra benefit. Users will be able to get free WiFi at AT&T's 10,000 hotspots. This means that not only can you play to the max, you can buzz up on Starbucks Trenta. Look for a $250 price for the portable game system.

Freakin' Friday! Happy Anniversary, Zelda and Link

zelda.jpg

Let's wish a collective congrats to Nintendo as the Link franchise is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Talk about feeling ancient. The original Zelda got me hooked on video games when it first came out. It seems fairly basic compared to games now, but it was certainly an improvement over Pong and I was never much for Pacman. And once in a while I get the urge to play it again as most of those relics are free to play online. For those of you who have a Wii, don't miss out on the latest version of Skyward Sword due out later this year.
