And we're back... sort of.

Hey folks! It's been awhile hasn't it! Anyone still out there? Really? That's great! So how have you been this past year? That's great! Did you achieve all of the goals you had in mind from July 7th, 2010 until now July 6th, 2011? That's great! Did you get that promotion you were waiting for? That's great! Did you take that vacation you wanted to take that you really needed for sake of well being? That's great!  Did you learn a new skill that you've always wanted to take up but never had time? That's great! You know what's also great? Parfaits. They are deliciously great.

All greatness aside, yes I know it's been a while. I decided to dust off my lonely website and give it another go. Speaking of dust, I'm sure you'll find tons of lingering issues, all of which will be corrected shortly. In the meantime, would you like to drop a comment and say hello? That's great!

And even if you don't want to post a comment... you guessed it, that's great!

Go on in and have a gander at some photography of the event courtesy of Popular Science. You'll see some interesting things such as the world's largest IMAX screen followed by the world's largest baby (relax, it's only a model).

Five things that will make e-readers a whole lot better in 2010.Five things that will make e-readers a whole lot better in 2010.

Here are the Cliff's Notes for the lazy folks: touch capability, color, flexibility, better software and more contrast. I'd like to add the word 'iPad' in there as a sixth thing that will be a contributing factor to making these devices better as well.

Microsoft decides to go with AT&T for their upcoming Windows 7 phone.Microsoft decides to go with AT&T for their upcoming Windows 7 phone.

Interesting move considering how much AT&T is bashed for their poor and spotty coverage as it relates to all things iPhone. Although, I have to admit I've never had a real issue with AT&T in terms of service here in the NYC suburbs. Maybe I have a magical account.

This news comes straight from director of said game, Eiji Aonuma. It would appear that this new installment will also make use the MotionPlus capabilities of the Wii controllers. Great, because I didn't look enough like an idiot swinging the Wiimote around in the last game.

Netflix streaming coming to the Nintendo Wii sometime this Spring.Netflix streaming coming to the Nintendo Wii sometime this Spring.

The Nintendo version will require a disc, just like the PlayStation 3 system does. Also, you probably shouldn't expect a whole lot of HD functionality (the Wii only supports 480p max resolution at present time).

Controller-free gaming will be yours for the taking sometime before the year is out. There is still no word on how much this thing will cost but you can take comfort in knowing that it will work with all current Xbox 360 systems. Joy.

Nope, turns out we're not living like The Jetsons quite yet; shockingly some people aren't too happy with that. Although we still have another fifty years to go before any real complaining should go on (The Jetsons live in the year 2062 according to Wikipedia).

Lifehacker covers a variety of methods in which you can attempt to try and keep to your brand new New Year's resolutions via some tips and tricks. Personally, I find that making no new resolutions at all is a great way to keep resolutions. Plus, there is a lot less disappointment that way.

Ten technologies that will somehow manage to rock 2010.Ten technologies that will somehow manage to rock 2010.

This covers all the bases that you've probably heard about somehow. For example, the soon-to-be-released-not-so-fabled-after-all Apple tablet, the perils of net neutrality, the hazy goodness of cloud computing, and mind altering views that you can see with some augmented reality. Woohoo.

This just might be (and probably will be) the day that Google unveils their brand new mobile phone that they intend to sell directly via their website. Also, T-Mobile may or may not be the carrier of choice for this device.

Gee, this wouldn't have anything to do with a certain company coming out with a certain product that may or may not be tablet-related does it? Maybe this is a clue that Verizon will have something to do with the impending iSlate? Maybe it's just wishful thinking.

This information comes directly from the folks at Square Enix. Get ready to set aside a big block of time for this one (I'll be scheduling out a couple of weekends months in advance - my game play time is limited these days). Remember kids, this comes out state-side on March 9th.
