FLASH GAME CHALLENGE: Sock and Awe

Duncan Geere Flash Game of the Week 7 Comments

sock-and-awe.jpg

Last week, I rather shamefully took the crown with a score of 7,180 on Downhill Bowling. This week, you’ve got a chance, because I’m typing from a laptop and have to use a damn trackpad.

This week, we’ve got the resoundingly topical Sock and Awe. Chuck shoes at President Bush, get dragged out, get beaten in jail. Well, the first of those three, anyway. I managed a paltry 5 hits before getting ‘removed’ from the room. You can do better than that. Click here, and then let us know what you got in the comments below.

Gemma CES 2008 Leave a Comment

In light of the recent announcement that Warner Bros are backing Blu-ray in the high definition format war (and the subsequent cancellation of the HD DVD press conference) it's no surprise the press packed into the Toshiba press conference this morning to hear what they have to say about the supposed 'death' of HD DVD. After a quick intro from Toshiba CEO Akio Ozaka, who stressed he was "suprised by Warner Bros' announcement", the 'lucky' person who had to face the crowds and defend the format was Jodi Sally, VP of marketing for the Digital A/V department. We got it all on video for you…

Very excited I was, to walk into work this morning and discover an email from Apple sitting in my Outlook account. There’s nothing better, unless it’s correspondence from my dear friends in Nigeria informing me of the amazing news that I’ve inherited millions of dollars from them. Good times, good times.

Speculation is brewing in our office as to just what Apple are hinting at with their email, with them inviting us to a special UK-only press conference at their store on Regent Street next Tuesday….
