A Closer Look At The DJ Hero Controller

Take a good look at this photo. Do you see what I see? If you said “tits“, then you’re close, but no cigar. I’m talking about that thing on Morgan Webb’s lap.

Nokia Ovi Launches

Ovi. What sounds like a menstruation period for a woman is actually Nokia’s attempt at an application store.
