iPod photo the Sony PSP killer?


Well, the title of the story is a little misleading, but apparently the iPod photo is going to be updated with a version of the Tetris game in it’s new firmware. I wonder how well it is going to play? I actually started getting hooked on the blocks game that is included with all iPods. […]

Crazy looking PC coolers
