Is it the weekend already? Boy, that went fast! Now let’s make sure you get your Sony, Google and Mad Catz news before you run out the door.
Sony has started sending out some good teasers of their upcoming devices. The latest was an image of about half a tablet, and today they are showing us what looks like a device underwater.
While some believe this is about a waterproof smartphone, the image looks more like that of a tablet to me. The waterproof feature is also no surprise coming from Sony. They are great at making their devices resistant to the elements. It’s kind of their thing now.
Opinion: March 2nd is almost here! Let’s keep it together and not explode of anticipation.

Google is officially nuts, but that is no news. What is current is the new HQ plans the Search Giant is submitting. This is the first time Google is designing and building its own offices, and they have foudn the right architects. This building will be intense.
Opinion: Just take a look at the video, guys. Google’s new HQ will be quite awesome. Now that is a building I would like to visit… or work at. But we all know that is not likely happening anytime soon.
Any true gamer will know that sometimes a good physical keyboard is called for. It’s annoying having to type in an on-screen keyboard using your controller. And if you play MMORPGs and certain other games, you need to type pretty often. So we are usually left using both a controller and a keyboard while gaming. Wouldn’t it be great if you could somehow combine them?
The idea has been around for a while, but I can honestly say I have never seen it applied as well as it is with Mad Catz’ new product. They call it the Mad Catz SURFR. This wireless controller comes with a keyboard, which you can use for more than gaming, by the way. You can use it for Twitter, browsing… anything.
Opinion: I kind of love this thing, as weird as it is. And for $79.99, it’s really not too bad of a deal.
