While looking for my next camera system (I'm currently waffling between the Olympus E-3 and the Nikon D700... hooray for contrarian gear attitude...), I found an interesting bit of old stock online.

Sometimes stores have old inventory.  Sometimes this old inventory is really quite a bargain: equipment that does what it's supposed to, and competitively with the current generation of products.

And sometimes Best Buy sells a 7 year old camera (Five Megapixels!  Smart Media storage!  USB 1.1!) for $1500 dollars.

Wow.

Lots of tabs being opened in Firefox these days...

While lots of guys are watching the DSLR manufacturers go at it in preparation for Photokina, Red says it has got a DSLR-killer in the making.  Also, Zepy helps us non-Japanese speaking people know what's going on in this breakdown of eroge production.  Elsewhere, SNK Playmore does more stuff for the fans, and AMD's new ATI Radeon 4670 looks like it'll be a great deal for gamers looking for a <100 USD video card.  And back in the real world, Otakon hotel room blocks are currently sold out.  Insane.

Yeah, it's been mentioned before, but now (read: almost a year ago) you (read: car owners in Japan) can have an over-the-top male villain (read: Norio Wakamoto) or a tsundere (read: Rie Kugimiya) in your car to drive you on to victory (read: your destination somewhere in Japan)!  The MAPLUS Portable Navi 2 is the perfect GPS unit for itasha owners everywhere.  It is insane.  Or awesome.  Or scary.  Take your pick...

And actually, there are far more than just those two.  On the MAPLUS2 demo page, you can hear samples from, in order, Tooru Furuya, Hikaru Midorikawa, Eiko Masuyama, Yurika Ochiai, Shuiichi Ikeda, Rie Kugimiya, Norio Wakamoto, and Akio Ootsuka.

Youtube videos after the break...
