Yeah, you've already heard this, but the Oscar nominations are out. Yawn. I'd really like to be able to say that I'll not be watching the Oscars this year, but who am I kidding.

Rumors on the newest Nintendo system are surfacing. Check it. For me, the most interesting items are 1) That Nintendo is putting their Okay on HD-DVD instead of Blu-Ray (poor Sony, its the return of VHS vs. Betamax, but maybe this time the power of the Playstation will have the world agreeing with Sony's notions of where technology should head?) 2) This notion of gyroscope controls . . . remember how, when you first started playing games and if you had a hard time getting Mario over a pit you'd heft your controller in the direction of the jump, instinctively, in hopes of getting a little more air? Seems Nintendo is latching onto that instinctive motion and now your furtive body language will actually get Mario over the pit or Pirhana Plant.
