Wii Want to Play (Hardware)

So, I think I may have to break down and buy a Nintendo Wii this upcoming week. I’ve been holding off on it forever, but I think it just time to get it done. I didn’t like the system when if first came out and all the different controllers seemed like gimmicks to sell more shit. I’m not a full convert yet, but I’m definitely starting to become a believer.

Aside from being a great value, the system really is a fantastic piece of hardware. It looks great in a bachelor pad’s living room, or any room at that. It has very smooth, Apple styling which almost makes it part of the décor of your place. The games available on the platform are geared more towards the causal gamer so anyone of any age can pick it up and start playing.

This will be the only system I will actually suggest that you play when a girl is around. It may sound uncool, but playing a few rounds of wii sports with a cute gal after a date is a great way to put her at ease, dispel any awkwardness regarding the question of “what happens nex”, and gives both of you a chance to talk and laugh without making you look like a dork. It shows that your up with technology, that you have great design taste, that you can have fun and be confident in who you are, and that you’re not just about sleeping with her. Believe it or not, this can go a long way in making her associate you with fun and good times.

Incase Slingpack

You may need a stylish carrying option for your laptop that is an alternative to the college backpack – this may be worth looking into. This bag is capable of holding up to a 17″ laptop and several slots for magazines, DVDs, and moleskins. It uses a one strap across the body. Good for that internship or trendy coffee shop around the corner.
