Zune? iPod, Google opens OpenSocial, Give yoself a ROFL!

 Hey guys,

Awfully sorry on the delay! I now have the connection I need to hook up a mean post!

Oh by the way, I just saw the movie Munich, an eye-opening story on the Israeli and Palestinian fighting based on the 1972 Munich massacre. If you haven’t seen it yet, feel free to check it out some time. 8.5/10

Hope we are all well, shall we begin?

So Microsoft’s answer to the iPod – the Zune has a new campaign, do you like it? Too bad I just bought a new 3rd gen iPod nano, now it took a little time to grow on me but I guess I’m slowly becoming a fanboy…damnit!

Google opens OpenSocial and provides Orkut support, are you social? To learn more about OpenSocial go here.

This is for the marketing minded, how much advertisers pay for the attention of NYC – a nice way to ballpark figures for campaigns. I hope you enjoyed as much as I did. It’s a video clip by the way (less than 2 minutes and worth it).

Here’s a great link for the Creative minds, 30+ links for Mind Mapping Tools!

I had to post this hehe This is how to get laid in 1977 and your ass kicked in 2007. NICE as ice with tonic.

Best Bollywood clip translation EVAR! ooooooooooaaaaaaaaauuuueee Benny Lava (watch it and you’ll LOL)

Now I love my gaming so when in need of an energy boost or the extra kilo that will turn me into Gimli I turn to my list of top 23 snacks for gaming! Some are on the edge of pushing the edge of whether you are a fully fledged macho male – but if you like pedicures, manicures etc.  then read on past #13  Our friendly local sys admin and I decided #1-13 is just fine for the majority of us. 🙂

Scientists find the oldest living animal. Then kill it. The title made me ROFL OL.

What’s a ROFL without a pic?

Have a great week guys!

Ahh back to the blog, I am setting up 3 new sites of which one will be a personal blog for the hell of it, mainly for humour and insights into issues of the mind that is Pandadan. Will keep you all updated.

I came upon a site that has presented me with a Digg for online marketers called Gooruze. Here’s the quick description but click on the link above to get the whole breakdown.

‘ is a new social network that’s pretty much a Digg for online marketers. So if you’re in the business of creating campaigns for online use, or would like to stay abreast of the latest trends in online marketing, Gooruze aims to separate the signal from the noise.’

For all those who want in and want friends to get started and populate,  this is my profile on Gooruze, so feel free to add me and we can together ramp up our fave marketing stories together muhahaha

For all the Zelda fans out there, the Phantom hourglass review is sayin its freakin sweet, read about it and I guess within a week’s time we may all be playing the same title! (oh you need a DS LITE lol) Hurray!

I’m playing Bully at the moment…rather fun.

MySpace and Skype announced Tuesday they are meshing social networking with Internet telephony, creating the largest voice-connected online community on Earth. I still prefer FaceBook….

 Hilariously awesome article on which country googles what words most, some real gems here. Example:

“Car bomb” – Australia, United States, Canada

“Hangover” – Ireland, United Kingdom, United States

“Burrito” – United States, Argentina, Canada

“Marijuana” – Canada, United States, Australia

The Wii is now the ultimate market leader in the sales of home console, taking over the Xbox 360 which could explain its price drop recently.Wii’s 10.57million sales to Xbox 360s Now all I have to do is wait till I have enough cash to actually buy one! Noobd.

One Mario Cake for Galaxy! MySpace is still king…iPod killer

Friday! Must I say more? Yes you say? Mario!

Tech Love

Check out the Mario Galaxy trailer for the Wii! And just to celebrate I thought why not find a shot of a pixel based Mario cake…I better save up for a Wii this game makes it totally worth and like all the other titles…Believe the hype! I want to wear a bumblebee suit now!

With all the speculation of Facebook, bebo, Orkut etc catching up here are some figures that show MySpace and Facebook head to head…shows that MySpace really isn’t losing ground as fast as we believe…

Why believe the hype? According to Yahoo! The article ponders the reality in the Wii actually taking over global PS2 figures which sit at a super comfortable 120 million. Shazam!!! I hope I buy the 120,000,001st Wii hehehe

Doctors warn people that their iPods can covert to lightning rods…not so cool now are they!!!! hehehe Need more evidence? Here’s the story of the dude who got shot down by lightning!!! Burnt nexk, chest, face, eardrums were ruptured and the tiny bones in his middle ears were dislocated, and his jaw broken in four spots…can you say this loud and clearly??? iOUCH!

Lifestyle

here’s a way to safeguard your house when you’re at work…interesting story nice pics and does raise a good point..and yes the robber does look like BORAT!!!!!!!! HAHA I LIKE!

Office Politics flying around? Here’s a few great pointers. Whether you adhere is to your own discretion.

This picture is just weird…it’s basically what would happen if a company rebelled and took over a building and because I don’t want to spoil it check the rest out for yourself. IF you’re offended by cartoon nudity, sexual imagery please avoid. ( I warned you…a little but I do have you interested now hehe)

‘Wiiitis’? SL value stupidity, Blog influence strength, iGoogle

Thursday…

I wonder why time seems to slow down on Thursdays…is it because the anticipation of Friday? Things are pretty awesome these days, lots of cool happenings at work, dancing is improving, poker game is improving and so is my time spent on eBay…hmmm what to buy next???

I will be in Seoul, Korea for around 2 weeks late July till early August so all you Korean readers let me know if there’s anywhere you recommend!

The Wii totally pwned the PS3 by how much was it again? The number was… OH! I think it was….5 times the amount rahahahar   The figures were 251,794 Wii consoles sold last month, while Sony sold just 45,321. Ouch.

So the Wii is awesome la dee da, HOWEVER! there is one problem that can arise with the Wii and it’s a symptom called Wiiitis. (article link) Now injuries due to the Wii have been a big issue and this is the ‘label word’ that has been derived for these injuries. Pretty cool name for injuries too… I wish I had Wiiitis…. 😦

Second Life is back again to haunt me everyday by being in the media~ well this time the rumour is…that the valuation for the oversexed Virtual world has come to a mind blowinly overrated $750 million! What the? If this is true that is totally messed up.

There are 15 million active blogs and another 57 million who read them. The blog has great influence on the wider audience, greater than we all believe…for example, few weeks ago, tech blog Engadget wrote that Apple’s iPhone and Leopard operating system would be seriously delayed. Though it was later revealed that info came from a fake leaked memo, the news still drove Apple’s stock into an emotional tailspin. A survey reports consumers simply trust blogs more than advertising or email marketing.  52% of readers were persuaded to buy something after reading a positive review posted by a blogger.  74% think “citizen journalism,” a term coined for news reported by bloggers, will play an important role in the future. Fellow bloggers, I salute thee!
