Celebrate The History of the SEGA Genesis/Mega-Drive with This Book

The SEGA Genesis was the very first console video game system I ever owned, and there fore holds a special place in my heart. I have distinct memories of playing the Sonic the Hedgehog “trilogy, Sonic & Knuckles, ToeJam & Earl, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Streets of Rage, World of Illusion,  and Comix Zone on my awesome Model One Genesis (with built-in headphone jack FOR THE WIN). Well, the successful Kickstarter project of an officially licensed commemorative hardbound book, titled the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works, contains a compilation of artwork, development sketches, hardware manufacturing plans, and interviews from SEGA’s golden years looks to be the definitive book for long time fans like myself.  Continue reading Celebrate The History of the SEGA Genesis/Mega-Drive with This Book

Like WHOA, man: Google aquires Motorola!

He Just LOVVVVES To Accessorize!!

Anyone remember “Whoa” by Black Rob?  Anyone? Anyone?  Yeah, you know you do!  That song was HOTT!

Plus, it fits this latest announcement that’s currently circling the “interwebz” today: Google has just purchased Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion this morning (yeah, THIS morning), and this could open the floodgates of awesome for Google for two reasons in particular.

One, Google could use Motorola to manufacture and sell “official Google phones” (a’la the iPhone).  This move by Google puts them in a position where one part of their company can program and develop the Android OS, while another part of their company is responsible for manufacturing the hardware for said OS (making it possible that Motorola will be the primary maker of “official” Google phones, including their Nexus line).  When you think about it, it’s not too different from from what Apple currently does.

Two, and probably the more advantageous of the two, Google might acquire any/all patents Motorola currently holds to defend Android from lawsuits and challenges from their main competition (namely Apple and Microsoft.  The official press release states Google’s intentions of obtaining Motorola’s patents in the acquisition.

Like most merger/acquisitions of almost any size, this deal is still subject to approval by the FTC (“AT&T-Mobile,” anyone?), so nothing is final yet.

Oh, and you’re welcome.
