Last month I finished reading the book Inside Steve's Brain. This documentary is a great summary of that book.

You see a huge display in a public area which invites you to swtich on the Bluetooth connection on your mobile so you can start playing Snake against others that happen to be in the same area.

In about 6 weeks the new Wii Fit exercise game will be available in Holland. I am seriously thinking of buying it. Wii Fit is designed to function with the Wii Balance Board peripheral and it combines exercising and gaming: exergaming. Wii Fit was released in Japan on December 1, 2007 and sold over a quarter of a million copies in its first week. via in10
