  • You guys gonna visit the Cowon stand anytime soon, or did i miss that? Would run there myself if i was near. Come on, wanna see the S9 pmp.

  • Impressive – Item posted on 31st August, and I’m reading it on August 27th. Maybe the main focus of the article should be that Mr.Geere appears to of invented time travel 🙂

    • Haha, it’s just a trick we’re using in our software that lets us keep a post at the top for the duration of IFA08. I’m working on time travel, but so far the results haven’t been stellar – believe me, when I crack it, you lot will be the first to know. I’m not kidding – I’ll go back to when you were born and tell you.

      • Mr Geere is a very talented man. Don’t listen to a word of his lies, Neil. It’s all a cover.
