Free DivX Create Bundle

Just like Opera offered their browser for free for a few hours on their 10th anniversary (and since then have changed their model to make it free for everybody), today you can get DivX Create Bundle for free (it's their 5th anniversary).

The offer lasts for only a few more hours so jump on over there now (if you're into that kind of thing).

(you can see some details about DivX Create Bundle here)

Nintendo Revolution Controller

You really can call it a revolution all right!

For those who don't know, Revolution is the name of the next generation Nintendo game console (that competes with the PS3 and the XBox 360) and Nintendo keeps claiming that Revolution will not be following the traditional path of a new console.

This week they at the Tokyo Game Show, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed the new Nintendo Revolution controller.

It's a cordless remote-control-like device designed to be used with only one hand. Two small sensors placed near the TV and a chip inside the controller track its position and orientation, allowing the player to manipulate the action on screen by physically moving the controller itself. For example, you could slash an in-game sword by actually swinging the controller from side to side, turn a race car just by twisting your wrist, or aim your gun in a shooter by pointing the controller where you want to fire.

It looks kinda awkward to me but according to the reviews by the people who got a chance to play around with it, it's pretty good.

Can't wait to see what else they have up their sleeve...
