For Issue 02, we flew down to Cuba to do some long-awaited exploring, gathering all of the cigars and rum the island has to offer. We then returned stateside and dug up even more. In Southern California, we visited the garage-oasis of Mercedes Motoring and obsessed over their immaculate collection of classic Benzes. We wrapped things up with edited guides full of machetes, submarines, golf equipment, sneakers, watches, and skateboards, among other gear.
If you're bored with the standard color of your next-gen gaming console, let the folks at ColorWare do something about it. The company offers a custom painting service ($100) whereby you can send them your PS3, Wii or Xbox 360, as well as controllers, and get it all returned to you in one of 28 aftermarket color schemes. The glorious paint jobs are done in a scratch resistant coating and will give your console a sweet shine. You can also buy a new, pre-painted PS3 ($725) or 360 ($525) from Colorware.
The original EyeToy for PS2 was pretty much exactly as it was described — a toy. Not so with the PlayStation Eye ($TBA; Summer 2007). Sporting features such as an improved microphone, better low-light performance, impressive 60 or 120 frames per second video capture, and an adjustable zoom, this PlayStation accessory is a worthy complement to the PS3.
