+ - FOUR DAYS WITH THE APPLE WATCH: A CONSUMERS PERSPECTIVE-> 1

Submitted by kube00
kube00 writes: If you are reading this I'm sure, by now, you've read impressions and reviews from many different sources, but how many of those were from actual consumers rather than the "tech titans" of the internet? I'd bet few-to-none, so I thought it would be refreshing to hear from someone like you who has spent some time with this much talked about new device.

My initial impressions right out of the box was how heavy and "stylish" Apple went with their packaging. They've always been known for having a lot of pride in the presentation of their new gadgets, but make no mistake, they took it to a whole new level with the Watch. In fact, "stylish" could really be the main tagline for their entry device into the convoluted world of wearables. They really wanted you to feel like you were putting on precious jewelry rather than some tech gadget or phone accessory.

+ - The Evolution of "The Nerd"->

Submitted by kube00
kube00 writes: Scott from The Gamers Lounge writes "Growing up, if I was called a nerd, it was an insult that had to be refuted. I always needed a quick retort to save face, which still helped me to appear cool with the ladies. The truth was different. I spent my evenings at a friend’s house drawing maps of Zelda dungeons, searching the couch for quarters that I could spend at the arcade, and trying to beat Mike Tyson into submission. I never knew at the time that as a nerd I would get the last laugh, and that I would get revenge in a way I could never imagine

+ - Sneaky Sneaky Slips onto iOS Platforms->

RyanDJ writes: Ryan Johnson-The Gamer's Lounge

Sneaky Sneaky is currently available for $2.99 on the iOS App Store. A neat mix of Final Fantasy RPGness, Metal Gear Soliton Radar scoping, and Zelda-esque graphics, it looks to steal your heart as it fills it's wallet. With the new release on mobile devices, does it make it more approachable, or do the mobile adaptations shove all the ugly bits out into the limelight? Ryan Johnson puts his two cents in (so long as they don't get stolen before you read them).

What will this mean for Gamestop and other outfits? Are there better options out there?
