  • Caption Contest: Russian prez is impressed by iPad 2

    In non-Soviet Russia… presidents tend to receive some pretty swanky high-tech gifts. Dmitry Medvedev, leader of the good people of Russia and one of the few men to successfully rock denims with a suit jacket, has been bestowed with a fresh new iPad 2 and his facial expression seems to suggest he was immediately irradiated with blasts of magic, fairy dust, and the smiles of innocent children from across the world. We just hope he hasn’t seen the crummy camera yet, he is something of a tablet photography connoisseur.

    Darren: “Why, lookie there! I can see Alaska from my iPad 2!”
    Joe: “I can’t believe I’m playing chess with Gary Kasparov!”
    Jose: “I wonder if Barack also likes to play Risk on his iPad.”
    Josh F.: “See? The cat is talking but he’s saying ‘has’ instead of ‘have!'”
    Don: “Kickin’ in the front seat, sittin’ in the back seat, gotta make my mind up, which seat can I take?”
    Tim: “Look, it already has Words with Comrades installed!”
    Vlad: “And this has push notifications for when Mr. Putin has instructions for me, yes?”
    Richard Lawler: “10,000 apps and it’s still cheaper than buying the New Jersey Nets.”
    Myriam: “And so if I tap here, it opens the door to the shark tank… and over here are the laser controls. Cool, eh?”

    Tesla Roadster 2.5 Sport review

    Gadgets come in all shapes and sizes, but it’s safe to say this is a big’un. Sure, it isn’t exactly portable in the traditional sense, and no 24 month contract is going to make it fit into our budget, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have a place in your life. It’s the Roadster Sport, the latest addition to the Tesla family and released to the world last summer. Version 2.5 is the fastest yet on the road, leaping from zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds yet still getting a rated 245 miles of range.

    Of course, we all know that rated range doesn’t necessarily equate to real-world range, and real-world car performance doesn’t always live up to what you read in the magazines, either. Indeed in our testing we weren’t able to make it the full 245 miles that Tesla says you can in a roadster, nor did we come close to approaching this thing’s 125mph top speed. But, after spending plenty of hours wedged inside the cockpit of this $128,500 sporty EV we did walk away mighty impressed, not only with how it drove but in how it sounded. Read on, and you might just be too.

  • GameStop snaps up Spawn Labs, Impulse game distribution platform
    We wouldn’t count on its retail business going away anytime soon, but it looks like GameStop is now also betting heavily on a digitally-distributed future. To that end, the company has just announced that it’s acquiring both Spawn Labs and Steam-competitor Impulse, the latter of which it’s buying out from parent company Stardock Systems. While Spawn Labs may not be the most familiar name, you might remember its HD-720 set-top box — essentially a Slingbox for your game consoles — which we first checked out way back in 2009 and finally started shipping in early 2010. It sounds like GameStop may have some even grander ambitions for the technology than that, however, as the company’s press release says that it’s now testing a “new consumer interface” that will give users “immediate access to a wide selection of high-definition video games on demand on any Internet-enabled device.” As our pals at Joystiq note, that sounds an awful lot like OnLive-esque cloud-based gaming service, but GameStop unfortunately isn’t offering many other hints at the moment.
