The mixtape paved the way for the way that we listen to music now. Think about it.. before mixtapes albums were the only thing around. That means that once you popped it in, there was no variation of artists, tracks, anything... Just the same album with the same songs by the same artist in the same monotonous order, over and over again. Then the mixtape came along and revolutionized the way people listened to their music. CDs and MP3 players came to follow, but Sony never forgot what the good ole cassette did for it.

Though the technology's basically long dead, Sony is finalizing the retirement of the cassette by releasing the last BoomBox with a cassette player that they will ever produce.



The CFD-A110 is a CD/ Cassette playing boombox with 14 AM/FM radio presets, a full range of speakers, and an external mic input for those karaoke lovers out there. It's going to be released at the beginning of summer with a pricetag of 20,000 yen, or $215 USD.Sadly, the boombox comes with nothing but a remote. No gold chains, no headband, no spray paint, and no hats to turn to the side.
But... what's better to spend money on than history?

It's been a whole decade, and now since the release date is set to the spring of 2011 we can start the long uncomfortable anticipation preceding the release of the third installment in the Marvel vs. Capcom series, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be a tag team fighting game with teams of 3 characters, just like Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will feature 3D characters on a 2D plane, much like Street Fighter IV. The graphics will be different from Street Fighter IV since they will be run on a version of MT Framework, the engine that powers Lost Planet 2 and Resident Evil 5.

Just take a look at these Marvel vs. Capcom 3 screenshots of gameplay and try and tell me that this game isn't going to be awesome. Niitsuma, the game's producer wasn't extremely happy to inform that due to restraints on time there will only be a little over 30 characters. That's still enough for me!













The screenshots show that amongst the 30 something characters are Morrigan, Iron Man, Deadpool, Wolverine, The Hulk, Chris Redfield, Captain America, Felicia, Dante, and Ryu. I can't wait to be playing the game... too bad it's 10 or so months away.

I hope I'm not alone when I say this, but WHAT IN THE HELL IS THE WORLD COMING TO? We've come to this. The sectarian Mac movement has begun. There is now a dating site exclusively for Mac and Apple lovers.

The yuppies think that all Mac lovers show similarities in taste, opinions on what's aesthetically pleasing, creativity, and style... since all Mac owners obviously have those things down.
Cupidtino.com launches in June of 2010 and to make it even more exclusive, it only works on Apple platforms like Safari and iPhone and iPad apps.
