Friday 13th = Toy Madness @ Marwan.com!

First up is Tomy's Q-Steer which is an RF controlled micro car. It is Tomy's replacement of the immensely fast and very hard to control Digi-Q as seen here:

The Digi-Q is very hard to find nowadays, and if you have one (like me) then consider yourself lucky! Even Amazon.com deosn't have any: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000DIT4R?v=glance

http://www.microrccenter.com/ has an overview of some of the Micro RC cars on the market. You can read about the new Q-Steer on Gizmodo.net Q-Steer's official page can be found here.

If cars are not the thing for you, then try tanks! Look at this:

I've had a set of 4 tanks for more than 6 years now and they still work... They are too much fun as you can fight 2 vs 2 or each one on his/her own. Look at this video. Also, make sure you visit Dan's Data for a more in depth look at the tanks.

If all that doesn't apeal to you the try the trains:

If you are into F1 racing then this is for you:

You can purchase them on ebay.

Last but not least, I leave you with two links: The google tanslated Takara Tomy blog so you can keep up to date with japanese toys. and the Takara-usa.com site for more toy ideas for young ones.

Slim Smartphone: Blackberry 7130g - Gizmodo

Slim Smartphone: Blackberry 7130g. It is good to see companies like Research in Motion (RIM) going from the PDA market to the smartphone market. This is a very good thing for me too :) I never liked PDAs because they are too bulky. I am more of a one hand phone kind of guy :P It is good for my resarch too! I am doing my DIT on smart phones. So, RIM is a welcome addition to the mix.

Philips' 42-inch TV, Now Featuring Even More Glow! - Gizmodo

Philips' 42-inch TV is ambilight madness! I know that you might me thinking, the more ambilight the merrier. Think again! The existing Philips LCD TV has ambilight on the sides only and they make a very faint sound. This is because ambilight basically consists of a set of tube lights in the back of your TV set. So, the more lights you have, the more white noise you are going to get!

Will Germany win World Cup?

I got emails from people saying that Germany does not have a chance in winning this time around. Their proof is bad results leading to the world cup. I disagree! History has shown that even when Germany had bad results before the world cup, they still made it to the finals. Statistically Germany is second favorite to win it (behind Brazil)! Soccer is not played on the green box my friends. It is played out side it! The green box is just for show :)

Some links to digest:

Germany second favorites to win World Cup
