Reiter's Camera Phone Report has some great interview video coverage from the US CTIA. Reiter used a Nokia N82 to record an interesting conversation about WiMAX and LTE, and another conversation that he captured on video was Rafe from All About Symbian asking questions about Share on Ovi. Check out the videos below.
Today is Wednesday that means Thai Truck for Lunch in Meguro! Mmm Yummy. While waiting in line I saw fellow Vox member Shin, we talked for a little while about recent blog entries on Vox. Such blogging Vox geeks we are. =)
Jero is the first Black Enka Singer to become successful in Japan. His grandmother was Japanese, after World War II she married a black American and moved to the US. She taught her grandson, Jero, traditional Japanese Enka songs. Jero grew up in America but decided to visit Japan to learn more about his Japanese roots. He took part in a TV show Singing competition and won, shortly after that show aired he appeared on other TV shows and became even more well known.
Interestingly he is popular amongst older Japanese because of his great singing ability, but also the younger Japanese like him because he tends to dress in hip hop style clothes and dances in hip hop style to the songs he sings.

I agree he has a great voice. The clothes are ok, that is his choice to dress how he wants. I wasn't that impressed with the dancing but his voice makes up for the dance moves.
This game looks awesome! Back in the day I use to play the original Mario Kart for Super Nintendo. But I didn't like the controls as much on the N64 version and I never got into it on the Gamecube version. However I did like the previous most recent version, Mario Kart DS, that brings back all of the classic tracks from the previous Mario Karts going all the way back to the Super Nintendo version. From the video the gameplay, controls, and battlemodes look like they are more similar to the original for Super Nintendo than the N64 or Gamecube versions and to me that is a good thing. I'm looking forward to seeing other people's reviews when it's released this week in Japan and if it's as good as it looks in the video I'll be picking it up very soon.
Lenovo's U8 IdeaPad is an interesting concept device that combines: touchscreen internet tablet, phone, office productivity, entertainment, imaging, messaging, etc. But the keypad layout seems a bit awkward to me. Watch the promotional video to see how it looks.
