With more than 20 years in the rap game, even though their Amazon page boasts 94 releases, the Beastie Boys are soon releasing what is only their eighth official album, the Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. While comment sections across the web rage for or against the Beasties, one thing is for sure, they have stood the test of time. With a little help from Nas on the emcee front, the Boys once again serve up the rap stew that has made them Grammy winners and one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Artists of All time.

Between fighting with my browser to keep from crashing thanks to that dreadful Adobe Flash, and skimming Michael Arrington’s latest lamentation, I began to ponder my next tirade here on BigBerries, and then it dawned on me. Earlier this week while foraging about the internet and in particular while searching with Yahoo (forgive me) and subsequently with Bing (which is essentially the same thing). I noticed something quirky with the results bubbling upon the top my queries. The Christian Science Monitor (CSM) was peaking out in top-dog position for of all things, the Sony S1 tablet.
For CSM to seize position above Engadget, Gizmodo, cNet.com and the numerous dedicated gadget and technology websites and even above Sony is questionable to say the least. In addition, and only to make matters worse, also present in the disastrous heap of the search engine results was something labeled HuffPost Tech. I was so confounded by the results I laughed and jeered simultaneously.

The Nike Free Run + 2 running silhouette is the technologically advanced follow up to the wildly popular, Nike Free Run+. The innovative sneaker expands on existing Nike Free technology and carefully mimics the intricate structure of your foot, giving you the support you need, while at the same time providing you with a wide range of movement so your foot can move more naturally while in motion.
Pictured is a Nike Free Run+ 2 silhouette in a sick Green Apple colorway. You can find Nike Free Runs in more colors over @ nicekicks. However, if you want to personalize a pair, make your own over at NikeID.

It’s more than official, the PlayStation Certified Sony tablet is on the way.
While several websites and new articles cite the Google Android powered Sony tablet as a late entrant in an already crowded market, you should celebrate Sony for adding another tablet for us to consider buying. The recently revealed Sony S1 tablet (S1 is a codename until actual release), expects to become available later this year, possibly Q3 and is causing quite a stir.
Sony, seeking to stand out from the plethora of black slate, carbon copy tablets currently on the market opted for a different design approach. That approach resulted in a tablet design that the company says, will lend to being able to hold the Android powered Sony tablet for long periods comfortably.
With a screen just under 10-inches, the Sony S1 is a full-sized tablet powered by a Tegra 2 chip and backed by the latest Google Android operating system, which currently is Gingerbread, also known as Android 3.0. Of course you get a touch screen, Wi-Fi, WAN, an expansion card slot, front and rear camera, all the additional functions you demand in portable devices, and a bit more. Like PlayStation functionality.
Rolling out for purchase like the Red Shark across the open highway, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is appropriately available as a Criterion Collection Blu-Ray.
Superbly directed by Terry Gilliam and fueled with amazing performances by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro, Fear and Loathing is a rare film that captures the sweet vaporous essence of the book it is based upon.
The characters lift the text proportionately from print to screen and carefully submerge you deep within their drug-induced adventures. If you did not read the book, you are not in the cold and if you did, you enjoy the film even more. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
