BATTERIES: TIANQIU Super Cell

We made a joke. Reader “ThreeOliveMartini” emailed these battery photos in, then we replied saying “TIANQIU VERY MUCH.”

It just came to us. Just like that. We should be on stage in front of thousands, not slumped in front of a whirring Dell constantly on the verge of tears.

“Tianqiu could mean many things, including heaven-autumn or jade earplug-small dragon with horns. Hard to say without the hanzi.”

“Is it wrong to like them more when they’re torn and battered?”

Air conditioning units

Something about getting hot.

Something about the new Daleks not being as frightening as the old Daleks thanks to cheaper, mass-produced Taiwanese Dalek cases.

Businessmen eating awkward party food and trying to smile about it

Three new blog ideas, here.

1. Things that look rude in thumbnails but then actually turn out to be NOT rude.

2. Businessmen eating awkward party food and trying to smile about it.

3. Men spitting food into napkins (probably been done).

HERE THEY ARE AS THUMBNAILS:

Samsung’s new N230 netbook and PARK-BASED LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY!

Here’s a lovely photo story, in which two ladies go to the park to look at dog photographs on their new Samsung N230 “netbook” and mess around with bubbles.

Here they are on the way to the park. The practical one in the blue dress has brought something to sit on and some food, while the one in white is only bothered about going on the internet. She probably finds the one in the blue hard work.

No idea what they’re laughing about. In which order they’d wank off the England team to cheer them up? “Who’s last? WAYNE ROONEY! HA HA HA!”

Oh, she didn’t bring something to sit on, just a change of outfits. We suspect this sequence is designed to illustrate the N230’s 10.1-inch LED backlit anti-reflective display.

We have stopped paying attention to CPUs, so the Intel N450 this comes with means nothing. All we know is we went through a period of reviewing laptops for “work” about two years ago, and everything that had an Intel Atom inside it was rubbish.

Is this what women do?

CELEBRITY HOLDING: Maria Sharapova has a go on the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini

Two photographs. One in which Maria seems to be struggling with the Android phone’s unlock system, or is perhaps waiting for a GPS satellite fix or syncing her external emails…

…then she gives up and smiles. Which is why she’s there.

Samsung wins award for its technical achievements in WiMax

To celebrate, it got a few girls in and tried to impress them by taking them up onto the roof of the office. Not many people have a key for the roof of the office, so it was quite the treat:

Or is this what the Sugababes look like now?

Now where did I leave my glasses?

Oh there they are. Thank you very much.

Samsung launches ‘Zipel Top Class’

Have two of them defrosted, washed, polished, and sent to my kitchen.

XTREME PRODUCT HOLDING, Nokia N8 edition

Part of us hates the idea of helping a video clearly designed to “go viral” to actually go viral, but… it’s pretty good. Shame it’s man, though. Although given the level of skill and dexterity required it sort of had to be, IS THAT NOT RIGHT GENTLEMEN? EH? EH? EH?

“Some sort of Nokia bullshit with ‘Hand Freestyler’ Max Viassenk. Whatever next…” – Jody (man).

Philips and yet more LIGHTING LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY!

This is a bizarre set of photographs. Philips has gone for the more mature model, as in the girls are over 15 years old, which gives it a sort of weird suburban dinner party feel.
