RIM Company (Research in Motion) has unveiled the new Blackberry Pearl 3G smartphone during the WES 2010 event. This new model features major improvements compared to the original model 8100 series that was left unchanged for more than three years.

Sony Playstation Move

March 12, 2010

Sony has finally unveiled their much speculated motion controller for the PS3 console. The Playstation Move takes obvious inspiration from the Nintendo Wii’s runaway success in this generation of the console wars, so although the Move looks like a Wiimote knock-off, it actually does things rather differently.

The Playstation Move requires the Playstation Eye unit, which if you don’t already have will be available as a bundle, and offers more precise motion detection. The ball on top of the controller actually changes colour to allow the Eye unit to detect it more accurately. The whole set up allows for precise detection within a 3D space. So it actually can sense the height and actual position of your swings as well as your distance.

There will also be a sub-control unit, which acts like Nintendo’s Nunchuk that attaches to the Wiimote for additional controls. However, the Move will be connected wirelessly. Check out Engadget’s extensive run-through of the Playstation Move over here.

The Move is estimated to be released at the end of the year, whilst Microsoft will also introduce their own motion detection controller to the market. So by Christmas time, we may see a three-way battle for motion sensing gaming supremacy.

Hasn’t Nintendo already got this generation of consoles wars in the bag? Or were Sony’s claims of a 10-year product cycle for the PS3 true? Microsoft promise their device will be revolutionary, what do you think that will look like?

Stay tuned as the neverending geekery continues.


(PRODUCT) RED x Nike Football “Lace Up. Save Lives” T90 Ascente

March 10, 2010

Nike Football continues on with its awareness partnership with (PRODUCT) RED with the creation of a special limited edition version of the T90 Ascente. The ball follow’s up closely on a similar (Nike)RED “Lace Up. Save Lives” campaign. The ball will be debuted over the weekend at games across Europe’s biggest leagues including the EPL, La Liga and Serie A. Sales from the ball will benefit The Global Fund to Fight AIDS. The ball is currently available for purchase through the Nike Store in Britain.

London, UK (March 9, 2010) Three leading European football leagues will turn
(RED)™ this weekend as Nike introduces a special edition(PRODUCT)RED™ ball in the leagues’ home fixtures to raise awareness of the (NIKE)RED ‘Lace Up. Save Lives’ partnership.

In a unified show of support for the global initiative, England’s Barclays Premier League, Spain’s La Liga BBVA and Italy’s Serie A TIM will use a special (NIKE)RED ball at all home games over the weekend of March 13th and 14th.

The Nike and (RED) partnership invites people to ‘Lace Up. Save Lives’ by purchasing a pair of (NIKE)RED laces. One hundred percent of the profits from (NIKE)RED laces is split equally between The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which funds AIDS programs that provide medicine, treatment and services for those living with HIV, and football-based community initiatives that deliver education and understanding around HIV/AIDS prevention.

The (NIKE)RED ball is a specially designed T90 Ascente – the same make of ball currently used by all three leagues and boasts all of the technological innovations that the players are accustomed to week in week out, but features the (RED) laces graphic on the exterior. These balls are available to buy now for £150 from

Richard Scudamore, Chief Executive of the Premier League, said: “The Premier League has enormous global appeal and we are committed to using our reach to raise awareness of this partnership between, Nike, one of our longest serving commercial partners, and (RED). A red ball and red laces are simple ideas, but sometimes those are the best – the hope is that the profile given through this and the money raised through ‘Lace Up, Save Lives’ will provide significant impetus and funding to the Global Fund’s activities to aid the prevention of HIV/AIDS in Africa.”

Seb Bishop, International CEO (RED) says: “(RED) works with the most iconic companies in the world, Nike among them. We are incredibly thankful for their partnership and for the support of three of the world’s premier football leagues which will have a powerful impact on our efforts.”

“Nike has a history of elevating global causes through sport. Through the power and appeal of football, this campaign not only highlights the HIV/AIDS issue globally, it has also created a great way to raise much needed funds,” said Mark Parker, President & CEO of NIKE, Inc.

On November 30th, 2009, the eve of World AIDS Day, Didier Drogba (Chelsea), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Andrey Arshavin (Arsenal), Denilson (Arsenal), Marco Materazzi (Inter Milan), Lucas Neill (Galatasaray), Clint Dempsey (Fulham) and Seol Ki-Hyeon (Fulham) joined U2 front man Bono and Mark Parker at Niketown London to announce the partnership.

The (NIKE)RED Limited Edition Ascente Ball will be available for £150 and 2010
(NIKE)RED Limited Edition Brasil N98 Track Jackets will also be £150 and both will be sold globally from March 3rd. (NIKE)RED products are also now being sold at retail.
