  • Next Week in My Obsessions

    Posted on November 14th, 2008 Shawn No comments

    This is quite a month, and difficult to focus on things outside of my obsessive world.  Between BlackBerry, Xbox 360, Rock Band, and GNR…there is so much that has already gone down this month, and it’s not over yet.  Since (due to work schedules) I may be a little light on posts next week, let me point out some of the biggies that are expected to drop between now and next Friday.

    • November 18 – As always, the weekly Rock Band DLC will be out.  We haven’t heard the official list yet, but should within the next couple hours.
    • November 19 – Microsoft will officially release the New Xbox Experience upon the masses (i.e. 14 million Xbox Live subscribers).  This will give a beautiful update the Xbox 360 dashboard, bring on cool avatars, lot’s of social activities, and the biggie….Netflix streaming capabilities.
    • November 21 – Research In Motion & Verizon Wireless will release the most discussed BlackBerry of the year, the BlackBerry Storm.  This is the first BlackBerry with full touchscreen and amazing media capabilities.  It’s going to give AT&T and the iPhone some serious competition.
    • November 23 – Best Buy will exclusively release the highly anticipated Guns N’ Roses album Chinese Democracy, which is 15 years in the making.  I’ve seen that soon iTunes will also pick it up.  Hopefully, we will have it in our MP3 store soon.

    Really, it’s going to be a crazy week of new stuff.  Of course, the obessions don’t end there.  We will be using, abusing, and reviewing everything once we get our hands on it all.

    On the unofficial list, here are some other things coming up.

    • I will officially put the nail in the coffin “My Treo Obsession”.  This was the original title of this blog, and my whole reason for starting this thing up a couple years ago.  You can expect a big article in the next week or two, where I will officially retire both the Treo 650 and 700p, and hand them over to my children to destroy use as toys.
    • I will be modifying my new (to me) Roland electronic drum kit to work with my Xbox 360 and Rock Band 2.  This will be fun, and the parts are on their way to my house.  Of course, I need to buy and learn how to use a soldering iron.  That’s a scary thought.
