Phantom Menace returns to theaters in 3D in 2012

Don’t think I will be first in the line for this. Not totally convinced about 3D in the first place. As time has gone on I have come to accept episodes 1-3 as part of the saga (though 2 is still pants) but do they really need to re-release this?

Why don’t they make an extension of the saga, like a 3.5 the early Darth Vader in much the same way as The Clone Wars bridges the gaps between 2 and 3?

What do you think?

Sonisphere Finland Ruined

The Sonisphere Festival is a touring music festival which takes place across Europe between June and August. It first started as far as I am aware in 2009 and in Finland it was located in Pori – home of the jazz festival. It was fast becoming a tradition to make an adventure out of the festival and spend some time around the area: and take in a few bars of course.

Big News from XBMC

This should have been such a big month for LG. Lots of people were eagerly awaiting information on the up-coming TV & Blu-ray products that , one thought given the press release in September last year, would contain Plex in some shape or form.

So the new level pack, Level 4 is available for the N900. Thinks I will be downloading this when I get home. I must say I find the games much more enjoyable on the N900 over the iPad. Not sure why but the iPad version is so difficult!

2010 – Tech Highlights

2010 has been quite a geeky year for me though not all highlights have been really high tech.

First item on the list is a SodaStream. My parents had one of these when I was a child and we used to get our sugar rushes from cola and lemonades. However, after a trip to Outi & Rob’s this summer I decided it would be great to have soda on tap.

They have spring water coming out of their ears almost and I thought it would be ideal to be able to supplement other liquid intake with soda – I’m not a big fan of natural water.
