The Wii U Controller

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

At the recent E3 2011 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) in Los Angeles, Nintendo unveiled its long-rumored new controller. The next generation Wii U console will come with a built-in 6.2 inch touchscreen. It will also feature a microphone, two triggers, a gyroscope, a front-facing camera and a stylus. The controller now resembles a portable game machine, but Nintendo President Satoru Iwata explained that is purely a controller to be used with a Wii game machine, taking the place of a TV. In later interviews, Iwata stated that the Wii U will initially only work with single-controller games or with double-player games where player two uses a regular Wiimote controller.

See the official announcement and find out more about the Wii U Controller in this YouTube video. You can also read more about the Wii U controller on Engadget.

Next Generation MacBook Air

Thursday, June 09th, 2011

With the third generation version of the MacBook Air (MBA), Apple seems to have gotten in right. Weighing in at just 2.3 lbs with a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of memory, the 11-inch MBA offers a lot of hardware in a small package. The longer-lasting battery provides up to 5 hours of use and perhaps best of all, the overheating problem that existed in earlier versions of the MacBook Air has been eliminated.

Many users are climbing onto the iPad 2 train, but for keyboard-intensive applications the MBA might be a better choice. Read a comparison of day-to-day use of the MacBook Air vs. the iPad 2 on the Cnet website. If you’re ready to shop, visit the Apple store.
