Cosplay Phones

Well, not quite but Vodafone, which has been doing very poorly recently in Japan, is about to introduce phones with costumes.

Paint.NET

It’s about FRIGGEN time!


MS and Washington State University are supposedly making a replacement for the laughably bad and nearly useless MS Paintbrush that’s been in Windows and nearly unchanged since like Windows 3.0.  Hopefully they will actually put it in shipping Windows and put Paintbrush where it belongs, in the recycle bin.

It’s got what is basically now the bottom of the line features in Japan which is color display, Java app/game support and a digital camera. It’s also got mini-SD card support to make it easy to get your pictures out.
