3ds specs


Ok all you 3D buffs!  IGN has managed to dig up some information on the 3DS from “other persons familiar with the hardware” (done so to protect the persons anonymity)


Nintendo’s next handheld will have the following specs…

CPU: 2 x 266MHz ARM11
GPU: PICA200 133MHz GPU by DMP
Video RAM: 4MB
Storage: 1.5GB Flash-based

The original Nintendo DS featured a pair of ARM processors running at 67 MHz and 33 MHz and a comparatively paltry 4 MB RAM. The Nintendo DSi had double the CPU clock speed and quadrupled the system’s RAM, plus added 256 MB of flash-based storage.

12-Year-Old killed by train, ipod to blame for death

September 22, 2010 1 comment

kid death

Yesterday, 12-Year-Old boy Caesar Muloki was killed by a New Jersey Transit train at 3:15pm. According to the train’s engineer, Muloki was listening to his iPod and had his back to the train as he crossed the tracks.


The engineer tried to warn him with the train’s horn as he pulled the emergency brake, but the kid either couldn’t hear it or ignored the warning. Witnesses say that he was running along the tracks while he suddenly decided to cross them.


Whatever the circumstances, remember that playing music at full volume while going around the city or near a road may not be the best idea. And for the love of everything that is good and furry, don’t cross train tracks with or without iPod.
