This 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.

I have always had a passion for the creative arts. Yet, I have never taken any of my interests further than merely calling them hobbies. In that respect, I have subdued these pastimes to menial expressions of creativity for when boredom strikes. Which leads me to the point of this post.
In December I was fortunate enough to be blessed with an Apple MacBook Air. My very first Apple computer. All who know of Apple are aware that this is the brand synonymous with photo, video and sound production. Today, I decided to put the aforementioned stereotype to the test.
Part one of the epic two part finale, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was great. But it left everyone wanting more.
The experience is not unlike being taken to a lavish all expenses paid three course meal and, just before dessert is served, you are told that you have to leave. Worst of all, we are forced to wait an additional eight months for our just desserts.
In addition to the unfortunate wait, it goes without saying that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is not a word for word recreation of JK Rowling’s exquisite books. Instead it is a artistically thoughtful recreation.
