…Apple is the leader of next gen computing?

iPhone SDK

The minds over at ReadWriteWeb seem to think that with the announcement of Exchange support and the iPhone SDK, Apple has set themselves up to become the dominating force in next gen computing, and I must say that I agree.

Here’s why:

  • The demand for small yet functional computers has already been demonstrated with the Asus Eee PC. If you can fit an entire computer into your pocket, you open up a world of possibilities.
  • The demand for pocket sized gaming devices has already been demonstrated with the DS (as well as all other pocket sized Nintendo consoles) and the PSP. Throw in Wii-esque motion controls and you’ve got yourself a winner.
  • Windows Mobile is terrible.
  • Exchange support means the iPhone can do what the BlackBerry does, only it looks good doing it, and can play games, movies, music, and more while you’re waiting.
  • It takes an iPod and a phone (two things many people carry around with them anyways) and combines them into one device. Why carry two when just one will suffice?
  • It’s an Apple product, so the UI is both beautiful and functional.
  • Combine a full SDK with a huge desire to develop for the latest and greatest mobile platform, and you’ll have throngs of developers jumping on board to develop amazing apps out of the gate. Microsoft Office anyone?

The list goes on and on.

Basically, as long as Apple can ride its current wave of iPhone success to conclusion, it will set the bar far beyond what anyone else is even striving towards at this point. The iPhone has created a whole new game, and currently, Apple is the only player.

Does this mean Apple will surely dominate next gen computing?

Time will tell, but all signs currently point to yes.

…John Cena is an 8-bit character?

John Cena 8-Bit T-Shirt

Though the unlicensed-ness of it all may mean that this never makes it to store shelves, I think this John Cena 8-Bit T-Shirt is a fantastic bit of retro chic.

The front features a modern interpretation of the cover of the Nintendo classic Pro Wresting, and the back features a potential combo for the 8-bit Cena, including a button mashing guide.

Can you see him?

…Super Mario Fusion is amazing?

Super Mario

Super Mario Fusion might be the best Mario to date.

Created by a fan, it will feature guest characters, widely varied worlds, and a completely new weapon system in addition to the standard Mario weapons (shell, fireball, etc.).

To quote the creator: “Think of this game as Mushroom Kingdom Hearts of sorts.”

Planed worlds include Sonic, Megaman, Castlevania, Halo, SHMUPS, Nintendo, and more, and each one will be unique.

For an idea of the end result, check out this video of the Halo level:

Very cool.

…Gaming tattoos leave luck to heaven?

Classic Gaming Tattoo

It’s going to be hard to hide the fact that you’re a classic gaming nerd with a tattoo like this on your back.

Featuring the full roster of classic characters, a larger than life NES controller, and the English translation of Nintendo: “Leave Luck To Heaven”, there’s not much that didn’t make it into this design.

…Alex Mauer plays on the NES?

Alex Mauer Vegavox

Want to stop people from making MP3s of your music and then passing them around?

Just do what Alex Mauer did, and release your music on an NES cartridge. The album, called Vegavox, comes with its own menu, and plays through classic Nintendos. You’re still going to have to blow in it to get things to work though.
