Capcom gives its Gyakuten Saiban (Reverse Trial) series a makeover for its first game in the series designed to take more advantage of the DS’s unique capabilities. The first three games (known as the Phoenix Wright series in the U.S.) were more reminiscent of the series’ Game Boy Advance beginnings, only barely utilizing the DS’s hardware in the form of being able to shout “Objection!” and other, selective lawyerly jargon into the microphone. I’ve forged my way through most of the game’s storyline, and it’s a new beginning in more ways than one.

Google has implemented an offline mode for Docs which utilizes SQL and browser plugins and some other nifty techniques. Awesome!
Earlier today, HP Introduced the w1707 a webcam that promises to deliver up to 12 mega pixel image quality and 5x zoom.
Pretty impressive considering the camera only cost $99.99. While the Camera is not in stores yet HP was kind enough to send us a sample to check out for 2 weeks and before we bring you the review, we thought we would tease you with some pictures we took when we unpacked it.
HP has entered the easy back up market with the Media Vault mv2120, the device looks similar to their Media Home Server device and works like the Maxtor One Touch.
The HP Media Vault mv2120 will aromatically backup your data daily or automatically depends on how you set it up, it will allow you remote access to the device so you can view your files while away from home, and it will also integrates with iTunes and allow for iTunes music playback directly from the device.

According to a recent survey done by BrandChannel, consumers around the world would rather have dinner with Apple than any other brand.
People have also said they relate more to Apple, are inspired more by Apple and can’t live with out Apple. The same survey shows that Microsoft is considered evil in a way as most people want to argue with them and think it’s time the company is re-branded.
However the survey in my opinion is kind of biased, 2,000 people responded to the survey 74% of them work in marketing, and quite honestly the last time someone who worked in marketing decided what I liked and wanted, I ended up with a Microsoft Zune Original.
The fact that the Playstation Store could use an interface overhaul is nothing new. Personally it wasn’t a huge issue for me, but many complained the store was setup like a website. Well folks, Sony has been listening and I think you will like the new look.
Check out the screenshots.
