If that thing's got an Atom processor, the only way its going to be even a decent gaming "laptop" is if its got some dedicated GPU of some kind (+ price, - battery). Plus those (presumably) OLED keys are going to cost a fortune more than any standard $5 keyboard. I have a feeling that the market for this is going to be niche, almost like all the Razer stuff. Frankly though, I don't think their typical "high-end gamer" market is really going to like this. 
But putting all of that aside, Razer's CEO has a good voice. If it wasn't such an iffy product, I could imagine to dude as Steve Jobs with all of the baloney language.

Or you can go old school and use something called a countdown timer, or even more retro, just a watch

I'm pretty sure that new releases of Game Room games are going to be extremely lean if not completely dead. I'm guessing that Game Room on Windows Phone 7 is made easy by the common development platforms between it and the 360. In other words, these are just ports of the existing stuff.

Why don't I inject something more than "fast food job"  since I'm guessing you'd have thought of  that already or "what have you been doing" since I'm sure you have your reasons. 
Here's a decent article that popped up on Lifehacker about a day ago talking about how to make the most of your relevant experience if you haven't worked in that particular career area before.

So today is officially the 'it wasn't on sale so I guess I'm buying it" day. I think I'm officially done, but this is the last chance to catch anything I want.

So an Xbox update that can be accessed through the Xbox is illegal? I don't get the logic

@AFreak: I'd opt for the Nexus S since its basically an enhanced Galaxy S phone with the pristine Google UI. Plus since you can easily get it unlocked, I don't think you'll have any problems with it in China on the standard GSM frequencies.

If Sonic is still going, then obviously Mario still legs left in him.
