Dot. Dot. Dot.

I’m thinking of using this space here again to post stuff that doesn’t quite fit in with my regular, thegamerwithkids.com blog. That means most likely there will be a ton of really random thoughts and posts here as well as me experimenting with things I’d like to use on my other blog but don’t quite want to commit to using it there until I test it further.

Patrick Stewart on Top Gear talking about heavy petting

Here’s Sir Patrick Stewart on one of my favorite automotive shows, Top Gear. He also does a quick lap for the Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car segment where he actually gets a pretty good time.

Also, Patrick Stewart must know the secret to eternal life or he picked up something from Star Trek because honestly, this guy does not age.  He looks pretty much exactly like he did when first became known as Captain Jean Luc Picard.

Introducing TheGamerWithKids.com – Geek Stuff

I have a new blog setup called “The Gamer With Kids” which is a more focused site than this one. (Tech)nically Speaking is more of a personal blog where I would post up a lot of things that don’t fit in with the other sites I write for normally so many of the posts were about all sorts of general topics.

For “The Gamer With Kids,” I wanted to make a site that was more focused that only deals with gaming, animation, and gadgets. Those 3 topics intertwine each other and they are a big part of my life. If that’s the stuff you like, please bookmark my other blog. It will really be more editorial based with each post having a personal spin to it. At least that is the plan. In any case, it is a work in progress.

As for this site, I am still updating this one on a regular basis but I think it will be going back to the way it was and focus more on the randomness.

Wishlist – Adidas Star Wars Superstar Track Top Featuring Darth Vader

I’m a big fan of all thing Star Wars, well maybe not all, (ehem.. Jar Jar) but for the most part, I love Star Wars related gear especially if they have to do with the original trilogy. That’s why, it’s not hard to see why I would want this Adidas Originals Star Wars Superstar track jacket featuring one of the most famous of Sith lords, Darth Vader. The jacket features an imprint of Darth Vader up front along with a small image of him on the rear. You can pick it up now at the Adidas  Shop for $85.00 but only in small. This is from Adidas’s spring Star Wars collection so inventory may be low already.

New Apple Magic Trackpad – Useful or Useless?

Apple today introduced their new Magic Trackpad. This is basically the Multi-touch trackpad from their Macbook Pro line but made for desktop use. The Magic Trackpad is much larger than your standard Macbook Pro multi-touch trackpad and supports all the gestures you already know.

I think its a neat concept, but I’m really not willing to give up my the easy of my mouse in order to use gestures. In fact, I have a Macbook Pro and I hate using the trackpad. When I can, I always plug in a mouse, and not the Apple Magic Mouse, but a “normal” 3 button mouse often used on PCs.

Whether the Magic Trackpad takes off or not remains to be seen but I have a feeling that most people would still rather use their trusty mouse. Plus, the trackpad is not a game friendly input device I would assume. Ever try playing Portal with the trackpad? Almost impossible.

Pagani Zonda R Blasting a 6:47 at the Nürburgring

Some of you may not have even heard of a Pagani Zonda R but just know that it just ripped the Nürburgring in 6min 47sec. If the car was street legal, it would be a world record, but its not. Despite that, the 6:47 time is very impressive.

Pagani does make a street legal Zonda so the tech and the parts from this test car may make it to production versions of the car. Curious what a Zonda is? Check out Top Gears review of the Pagani Zonda here.
