Wacom Tablet

Wacom Tables is a pressure sensitive table that let you draw or do whatever you like. It reacts as a mouse and if you like to draw or create something, you can go to photoshop or other software like art rage to create something you like. I used this tablet in my drawing techniques class and at first it takes time to get used to, but then its just awesome. Good thing about this is you have unlimited supply of markers. Because you can draw all you want with out running out. I'm lucky I used the tales, so I didn't have to buy markers. Other great thing is that if you do make a mistake its easy to fix, while marker on paper not so much.

Forza 3 Storefront/Auction house

I talked about Forza Motorsport 3 before, but this is a really cool and useful feature in that game that connects everybody in a way. What storefront does is let you share or sell your work. You can just put up images to view or create some logo or cartoon character to be sold on storefront. You decide how much that item in going to sell for and how many you want to sell. You can choose any number you like to sell or infinite. Selling a single design is one thing, other things you can go is design the whole car and sell a design of a specific car. You can't buy a design that somebody made like a logo of Akron U, and then place that on a car and try to sell a Akron U design car of Ford GT. You can make that for your self, but cant sell somebody else work. Everything on the car has to be design by you or they wont let you sell it. Auction house is another any of selling and buy over Forza 3. Here you just sell your cars from your garage. You place the price and how long its going to be a on a sale. What makes this more special is that you can sell spacial design cars. Im talking about setup and tuned car to race in specific class or made to drift. With these features game becomes more interesting and players can share a lot of stuff. You can just gift a car to a friend if you like.

iPad is a new product from apple. I looks more like big iphone. It has a big screen, and it runs better then iphone. You can get a 16, 32, or 64 GB flash drive. All data are stored on the flash drive and there is no option to expand storage. Apple sells a camera connection kit with an SD card reader, but it can only be used to transfer photos and videos. What i like about ipad is Wi-Fi. ipad has a screen so big that websites look how they would look on normal computer so you can use ipad as your mini computer. Smaller then laptop it gives you just a screen that you can kick back in bed and watch youtube videos or just read something. A 16GB ipad will cost $499, 32GB will be $599, and the 64GB version will go for $699. All models include Wi-Fi Internet access – and 3G mobile antennas can be added for an extra $130.

New soccer ball

In 2006 at the Germany World Cup, a new soccer ball was introduced, which sparked the anger of many goalkeepers, including veteran Oliver Kahn.

The soccer ball, as Kahn and many other goalies would notice, is "built in favor of the striker" meaning that it has several characteristics that make shots stay on the ground and thus, having more chances to hit the goal.

For the world cup 2006, new soccer ball has a new design to it. It was made with different shapes to form a pertecly round ball, which was said to be the most accurate ball. There is a new ball with a new design for world cup 2010. It said to improve more with additional small surface texture to give grip when wheat.

LightScribe another way of marking your disc. After burning a cd you flip to the other side and make your own custom label. Things you can add is anything really, pictures or some logo designs that you have created. Only thing is that you have to get a disc that is capable of that and it can only be done in shade of grays. So your disc is probably a bit yellow with black or more gray added on there. Having different levels of grays gives good black and white kind of look. This solution may offer more safety than labels that can come unglued, or inks that may penetrate the media and damage data.

Social Networking web sites.

There are a lot of Social Networking web sites. Most popular are Myspace, Facebook, and Twitter. I remember first when I went on Myspace and I think that one that started making a lot of this popular. Then came facebook, which lets people post stuff up and everybody that is there friend can see it. That can be whats on your mind or just posting a video that you like to share. Myspace is more of creating your personal page, with play list videos and nice looking background. Now they added a similar thing like Facebook, but I think that people like to try new things so that's probably why a lot went to Facebook. Twitter is new from what I know and I'm not a member, but from what i know its like Facebook. You post up whats on your mind and people can follow. What I think made this web site popular is celebrities. Bunch of them post stuff on there own and I think that brings fans closer to some celebrity. They like to know when there celebrity post something up saying when they went to the toilet. There term was twitting.
