Japan Launches 'Buddha Phone' 212 212

CNETNate writes "The Japanese Odin 99 handset isn't a regular video-enabled phone. It's geared, perhaps somewhat ironically, towards the Buddhist geek. Aside from regular cell phone features, a dedicated button loads a private, customizable, animated altar on the phone's screen. The idea is to allow Buddhists to perform their dedications conveniently on-the-go. You can simulate incense burning, purification rites and play music to help you meditate wherever you happen to be. The question is, does such a device somewhat negate the values a Buddhist would stand for?"

Comment: Phantasy Star Online fences (Score 2, Informative) 282 282

In Phantasy Star Online you could glitch through some of the laser grid fences that would normally need a switch. Simply go to one of the posts that is next to a wall then take out a melee weapon that you move a lot with such as the sabre or daggers and slash the crap out of the corner until you get in and do the same to get out. Of course sometimes its easier to hit the switch, especially in earlier levels when the switch is either in the same room or the next one.

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
