Steve Molson, the Bell Centre man who has sold 25 Million tickets, 100 million beers, 500 Million toastés/steamés (not as good as the original Forum version) made an appearance to introduce the latest update to the wildly popular iHabs device. After months of speculation, rumours and innuendo, the iHabs2 is now playing and looks to be yet another business and marketing hit. Marketing 101 suggests we look at the specifications, features and benefits. Start scrolling, clicking and buying (unavailable to sore Palm users, original/old Newton owners and Jim Balsillie's buddies).
CHompetition ~ The Florida Panthers, 13th (3-6-1), The playoff-bound Montréal Canadiens 6th (4-4-2).
Nitro JavasCHript! ~ Add some Rhum, scotCH, Khalua or other favourite liqueur to spice up your gametime coffee, RDS/TSN, probably pirated somewhere on the web, 7:30PM from sunny FLA, (currently 77 degrees lg in the shade).
TeCHnical SpeCHs ~ ProduCHt Manager Pierre reviews some of his favourite features ~ It has a Competent Processing Unit whiCH provides dramatic performance improvements brought to you by the dual sCHore eh2011 CHip and an update to The System™. Now with two CHameras, one front and one rear-facing so you can picture them coming and going, still needs some flash, pinCHes and zooms but results vary depending on focus. Long-lasting battery life that should get you to the playoffs. TeCH Note: might need to be reCHarged in May. Includes the DDD Accelerometer, the Squid Goal Positioning System and the Gill GyrosCHope. New Apps include GarageBanDeNiaseux, an audio recording and playback app that lets you trim and edit the anti-CHambre multi-tracked noise makers. Previous App review.
Boards of advertising ~ RIM ~ On April 1st they will try to job you with their enterprise playbook ~ Motorola Xoom ~ To the moon Honeycombers ~ Samsung ~ They'll sell, in another Galaxy, maybe ~ HP ~ Not as A1 as their sauce ~ WindozePhun67 ~ Official leaf tablet. Pee-Air mcsplooge has yet to call the iHabs2 'magical'. Bored?, looks like fun but don't try it at home.
Smart CHovers ~ The unheralded D turns on the iHabs2 when CHallenged, cleans the ice by automatically blocking shots, and doubles as a stand up bunCH of guys on 'Your Canadiens'.
Colour sCHeme on your hi-res sCHreen ~ You'd think Bleu, Blanc, Rouge but nope, available only in Black and White. (Merci GG for the perfect and colourful pad pictures).
FaceTime ~ Still no Gorjosh, Vodkov or DarCHe, FLA still has a few players left from trade deadline day but we don't know who is in their line-up but they probably did better than mcsplooge's 'losers' Habs did on 02/28.
