Another YouTube video. Pocoyo series 1 is out on DVD (UK) on April 10th. Very excited (on my 16 month old daughters behalf, obviously)

They say the beard “could have been false”. Either that or this man has iron filings growing out of his face

This is very useful for web design dinosaurs like me who have been using nested tables (or ‘tag soup’, as Jeffrey Zeldman calls it) for page layout for far too long

a_scanner_darkly.jpgThis was originally due out last year; now it’s apparently going to be released this summer (although I notice on IMDB.com that no UK release date has been set – I hope that’s remedied soon)

For some reason, the scenes featuring Robert Downey Jnr don’t seem to have been rotoscoped as well as the other scenes featured – maybe it’s just me (or is that Bobby D Jnr’s not as roto-genic as Keanu?)

8GB PSP on the way?! February 23, 2006

The DigiTimes says, “According to market sources, Sony plans to release a version of its PSP (PlayStation Portable) using NAND flash from Samsung Electronics in the second half of this year.” Further on in the article it states that the updated PSP will feature 8GB of NAND memory! That’s a helluva lot of game saves, and easily enough to house the entire Star Wars saga in MP4 format.
Now there’s a dilemma; I was planning to get a PSP in the next few weeks. Should I wait and see what Sony announce? It would certainly be a bummer if I bought a PSP with its poxy 32MB memory card now, just for an 8GB version to be released in a few months’ time. But if it turns out to be completely untrue, I might end up needlessly denying myself months of PSP fun. What a decision
