Xbox 360 250GB Racing Bundle With Forza 4 And A Wheel Is Rather Sufficient

So, this is just a quick news byte. For $299 you would be purchasing yourself a 250GB Xbox 360 Racing Bundle, consisting of the console itself, Forza Motorsport 4 to build your racing skills to a higher degree and a Wireless Speed Wheel to top it all off. Who’s excited?

Well, at least it comes out in mid-June. Not into it? Alright, moving on. Via: Major Nelson

Apple Books June 11th For Its Next Keynote Event

Just in time for the almost repetitive announcement of new hardware in the month of June, every year, Apple has booked a keynote on June 11th at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. Reason? No one in the press or public truly knows, but all possible evidence points towards new Macs, iPods, or the next iPhone. Whatever it might be, the 11th of next month is not too far off.

Nokia Shows Off A Lumia 900 — Batman Edition

Very simple idea from Nokia: take everything people love and hate about the Lumia 900 (more love than hate, I might add), coat the polycarbonate body in all black, and slap a laser-etched Batman logo on the back. This special edition will be produced in limited quantities, for the UK, Germany, France and a couple of the other European destinations in in the coming weeks or months. Via: Nokia (Facebook)

This Week On LaptopMemo: Reviews, Project Glass, Cloning, And Skyrim

This week in technology news coverage was pretty awesome. It is time to list everything in the most orderly fashion as possible. You know, like this:

  1. A feature on human cloning.
  2. Skyrim Gets Horseback Combat
  3. Pentax releases the K-30, successor to awesome K-x and K-r DSLRs. 
  4. I review a USB 3.0 thumbdrive.
  5. Then I review a ScotteVest Transformer Jacket.
  6. And finally I reviewed the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1-inch from Samsung.
  7. Project Glass gets its first video and gallery — for its own camera.
  8. Oh, and Windows 8 boots “too quickly”.

That was really, really good. And now, it’s time to see what the upcoming month — June — will bring to this site, and this world of technology in general.

Feature: What Human Cloning Should Be Like In The Future

In the distant future, when humanity has evolved the sciences to a degree where human cloning is possible, its benefits are nearly endless as they are destructive. In fact, human cloning should be allowed, and regulated, despite federal regulation having loopholes. This is exactly why not only human cloning should be allowed for its benefits, but for how it would work. But with all of these contradictions, it would be best to understand the entire idea, by jumping after the break.

Skyrim 1.6 Beta On PC Now Allows For Mounted Combat

This. Is. Monumental.

At least for the many (millions?) that enjoy The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Steam. Mounted combat is now possible on horses (obviously including your preferred bows, swords, and so on) by jumping into the Beta Participation section on Steam’s settings menu and selecting the game. On top of this very prominent feature, a few glitches were fixed with the recently added ranged and magic kill cams, another feature added in a post-launch patch that makes Skyrim an even more well-rounded and artistic game than before. Jump past the break to see the full changelog for the Skyrim 1.6 Beta.
