Pokemon Black and White Mall Tour

Yesterday, I went to the Pokémon Black and White Mall Tour at Westfield Oakridge Mall in San Jose, CA. I think the mall tour was amazing. Especially the free stuff. XD I love free stuff... The mall was crowded with Pokémon fans from all over SF Bay Area I guess. I'm pretty sure they are from the bay. This isn't the end of the article. :) I stuck little bits of the article under the pictures so you won't get bored while reading this. HAHA

Giant models of Reshiram and Zekrom. :D

According to the flyer I got, there was a station for playing a demo of Pokémon Black and White and you get a free Pokémon pin just for playing the demo. Oh yeah, that leads me to the other thing. I should have read the flyer when I was there. XD I missed a lot of things. Like for the demo, I was like, eh... Who cares. LOL If I knew they were giving out free stuff, I would have went... So I didn't get a pin... At GameStop, they gave out Celebi for your Pokémon game. At the "Pokémon Center", you got a chance to buy Pokémon stuff. I thought they were a bit overpriced and there was nothing I want... Other than that Pikachu shirt, but they didn't have a size I can wear. :\ And it was $20 per shirt. WHAT A RIP OFF... But expected. HAHA

My picture with the Reshiram and Zekrom models. LOL

Miss the event? Here are some of the things they were selling online!

People lining up for the stamps... I'll tell you more about that below. I guess some of them were lining up for the Celebi. HAHA

There was a lot of people lining up for the free stuff...

This was the station where they showed highlights from the new Pokémon movie. I didn't watch. I was busy taking photos for you guys. LOL

There is an "Activity Zone" where you can see the highlights of the new Pokémon movie, take photos with Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott in person, and you can spin a wheel to get free stuff.  There was also free showings of the new Pokémon movie, which I also didn't see because I thought you had to pay. LOL You get an over-sized Pokémon card for watching the movie.

Ad: Nintendo fans, are you read for 3D video gaming? Get your Nintendo 3DS now! More details.

After you get all 5 stamps in your flyer, you get to spin the wheel to determine which prize you get. Prizes included Pokémon plushies featuring the Snivy, Tepig, or Oshawott, patches featuring Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott, cellphone charms featuring Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott, and styluses featuring Snivy, Tepig, or Oshawott. Everyone with the stamps had one shot at it. I'll tell you more about the stamps below.

More pictures of the people lining up for the free stuff. The line moved faster than I thought. HAHA 

There was 5 stations spread out through out the mall (just like the one above). You were to collect all 5 stamps (1 from each station) and return to the "Activity Zone" to get a spin at the prize wheel. :) It was pretty fast because they told you all the locations of the stations on a sign... HAHA

I got a Oshawott plushy and a Tepig stylus. :) I got 2 prizes because my parents was there. :P So 2 prizes for me. XD It kinda sucks I don't have a DS to use the stylus on... Oh well, I can use it with my Nokia N97... The thing you see underneath the Oshawott plushy is the flyer.

Other plushies they were selling. HAHA :) The first one is the one I got for free. LOL

People lining up to see Tepig in person and to take a picture...

So many people... 

Ok... Something is not right in this picture... HAHA Pedo... JKJK

So they had people (Nintendo employees?) dressed up in Pokémon costumes standing there so the fans can meet the Pokémon in person and to take pictures. I guess the little kids got a lot of joy out of that or the pedophiles in the costume..... JKJK XD So many little kids... LOL

The Oshawott plushy and the Tepig stylus I got.

A few days ago, a untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 has been released. This will allow you to fully jailbreak your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that is on iOS 4.2.1. The jailbreak for the Apple TV 2G will be released soon as version RC6. As of right now, the jailbreak is available for Mac and Windows operating system.

Pocket-sized 3D Digital Camera!

The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 Digital Camera is a digital camera that takes pictures and shoots video in 2D and 3D! The lens it uses are 10 mega pixels and the video it records is in 720p 3D! The LCD (3.5 inch) on it uses the Lenticular Lens System which allows you to watch your videos and see your pictures in full 3D without the need for 3D glasses! The two lenses are eye length apart, so the 3D will look realistic. The camera can be connected to any TV with a high speed HDMI cable and the pictures and the videos can be viewed in 3D as long as the TV support 3D. The pictures and videos are recorded to SD cards.

I did read some of the reviews on there say the 2D mode isn't that good. The photos taken in 2D mode isn't as sharp as camera phones. The camera was made for shooting in 3D. The reviews on the 3D aspects were really good and the photos is clear. I also read that the battery on this model is a bit weak, so a second backup battery is suggested so you don't run out of batteries to use when taking pictures or shooting videos.

Why not go check it out? Do you need better video resolution? Well here is another product to that solution, but this solution won't be pocket-sized.

The Panasonic HDC-SDT750K is a 3D HD camcorder that records 3D videos in full 1080p! There is an 18x optical zoom on the camcorder which is great for far way stuff. Pictures can be taken at 14.2 mega pixels. The videos and pictures are recorded to SD cards. The microphone on the camcorder is capable is recording audio in 5.1 channel surround sound.

You know, I love 3D videos and pictures. When watching a 3D video, it makes me feel like I'm like there! When I watch a 3D video, well I feel like I'm watching a video. So I would recommend that you get one of these 3D cameras/camcorders. Everyone is moving to 3D. Why don't you?

Apple Patents the iStylus

Picture from Patently Apple.

The picture you see above is a drawing of the Apple iStylus. The new patent is a patent of a product that hasn't yet been released to the market for people to buy and use. The stylus will consist of a shaft, a replaceable tip, and disk pivot, and a conductive disk as seen in the image below. 

Picture from Patently Apple.

The stylus is said to have built in accelerometer sensors, angle sensors, and pressure sensors to insure more accuracy and allow to screen to acquire more data about its surroundings. The stylus is said to bring a better experience for artists who likes to draw on electronic devices and for users to have more human interaction with a game or application on the device. The iPad screen can not detect pressure. With the pressure sensor, when artists "paint" on their device, it may allow them to have darker and lighter strokes in their artwork instead of a "static" stroke. 

The device will communicate with the stylus via Bluetooth, Wifi, or a wired connection.  It is also theorized that Apple may also add buttons onto the pen to make it easier to switch between different options. Let's take the artists example again. The buttons may allow the artists to switch quickly between brushes and colors without the need to tap on the correct icon on the screen. Another theory is that there will be some other tips that you can switch on the pen for different needs. 

Now for my opinions... I think it is evil and ridiculous that they are patenting this without actually releasing the product. A lot of people (like me) want to have a stylus, but now there will be limited people making a cool looking stylus due to this patent. Apple is really evil... :\ Let's just hope Apple releases this product soon. :) LOL 

This article is written by Sunny (me). :)

Here are some styluses on Amazon. Guess they'll have to pay Apple pretty soon. XD If Apple tries to sue them... Which is really likely. HAHA Now, I'm not saying this for no reason either... Remember how they reacted to the lost iPhone 4 and the Steve Jobs bobble-heads? ROFL
