Nintendo 3DS Launch: South Africa

Hans and the Nintendo 3DSThe Nintendo 3DS was officially launched last night in South Africa.

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend and be one of the first people in the country to play with Nintendo’s latest portable device.

My first hands-on impressions of the Nintendo 3DS and a general overview of the spectacular launch party are right after the jump!

Nintendo 3DS in South Africa: ‘Live Blog’

Nintendo 3DSThis evening I have the opportunity of attending the official launch of the Nintendo 3DS in South Africa. Since it is a private event, which is not open to the public, I have decided to try something different.

For the first time I will attempt to “Live Blog” the event as it happens – from 18:00 (6pm) GMT+2. Please bear in mind that I have never done anything like this before. So it remains to be seen whether or not this will be a “hit or miss” endeavour. Nevertheless, I look forward to your feedback.

If you are interested, the Live Blog is right after the jump.

Google, now with Instant Previews

"Instant Preview"If you search the Internet as much as I do with the ever present and useful Google, you will know how annoying it can be to click on a website and find that is has squat to do with want you are searching for.

The good ol’ Goog has decided to tackle this issue head-on and has launched a new and undeniably useful function. So useful, in fact, that after prolonged use you cannot help but wonder, “why did they not think of it sooner”?!
