October is One Geeky Month

5 Oct 2011  No Comments


We just heard yesterday from Apple the specs of the latest iPhone 4S. Next week its Samsung and Google’s turn to announce the anticipated Nexus Prime/Galaxy, a rumored 4.65″ screen with 720P Super Amoled Plus display And from the teaser video it looks like it will have a curved screen. And by the end of the month Nokia world will be taking place and we should see the first Nokia Windows Mobile Phone device. I hope they don’t reveal something too awesome or that means I’ll be broke this month. That’s not taking into account the Amazon’s Kindle Fire that was announced last week.

The Razer Blade

If you are a PC gamer, you would definitely have heard of Razer before. They produce some high quality PC accessories form mouses and keyboards to gaming headsets.

But they seem to be getting into the PC manufacturing business. After all, HP will be leaving a huge gap with it leaving the consumer PC market. The laptop code named “Razer Blade” is the thinnest 17″ laptop in the market today and packs an impressive spec sheet, 2.8GHz Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM and a 17.3-inch LED 1920 x 1080 display. It also takes a cue from their own “SwitchBlade” concept they revealed at CES. Implementing a LCD trackpad that also can be used as a secondary display for game info and quick shortcuts.

With a price of $2800, just over KD750, I think it is an excellent gaming laptop considering that 17″ MacBook pros start at $2500/KD700 almost.

The Dark Knight Rises:

Tom Hardy (Bane) and Anne Hathaway (Catwoman) are the latest additions Christopher Nolan’s wonderful trilogy as they join Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson and Gary Oldman to conclude the saga.


The Amazing Spiderman:

Its a good thing they decided to reboot the series as it lost its way with the 3rd movie. I’m not sure about the cast though, both cast members and the director (Marc Webb – 500 Days of Summer) never tackled something this big before. But I hope they do well.


The Avengers:

There isn’t a good copy out yet as the teaser supposed to show right after Captain America’s end credits. But the movie is looking good. With Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Blackwidow and others making an appearance. Directed by Joss Whedon (Thor)
