Nintendo – What’s their game?

History

Nintendo’s early life first started in 1889 started by businessman Fusajiro Yamauchi under the name of Nintendo Koppai. Their business was based in Kyoto, Japan and initially produced and marketed handmade playing cards.

Nintendo Koppai then became Nintendo Company, Limited in 1963.

It was when Yamauchi decided to go down the route of toy making that things started to look up for his company.

It was the 1970’s and perhaps just a stroke of luck that shaped Nintendo and made them the well respected brand they are today.

MySpace or a “waste of space”?

Hello Everyone,

Well by now, unless you have been living in a cave for a long period of time, you should have heard of MySpace.

Whether we like it or not MySpace has taken the world by storm and there are now well over 100,000,000 accounts on MySpace. How many of these are legitimate though is hard to tell.

The concept of MySpace isn’t too difficult to grasp. The clue is in the title. When you create an account which is a fairly simple process even if you’re new to computers. This entitles you to yourspace or myspace on the Internet.

From there you can customize your own personal page or profile page as it is known.

As MySpace is a social networking site, you will then want to add your friends who will also have to create their own profile.

To start with though don’t worry you won’t be completely alone. As the friendly face of Tom who is the president of MySpace will have automatically added you as a friend. But don’t expect him to be there to help if something goes wrong. He is a very, very busy man.

Marmalade The Cat – 02/04/07

Well this is Marmalade who’s 13 years old in May. I don’t think I’ve made him famous before by uploading his photos to the net. So here he is in all his glory. And just so you know his PA approved the photos before they were uploaded. πŸ˜‰ I took these photos on my Sony Erricsson K750i. I’m quite pleased with the results. πŸ™‚

Ordering looks from the Photoshop

Hello Everyone,

I saw an article in the Daily Mail which is a UK newspaper. It had a great article about how a ‘girl next door’ can be changed into a super model.

Now to some of you reading this blog it might be old news to you. However I was very inspired to post this particular video because of the message it communicates.

The video is done by The Dove Self-Esteem Fund and I hope it impacts on you as it did me.

Every company has a right to a chance to sell a product. After all a lot of products can be very beneficial but should companies sell products by deceiving us? What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it’s right for an advert to impact on a person so much. That it makes them question themselves as a human being? What right has a company to judge how we look and should feel?

Thank you for looking! Please share this video with as many people so that we can help spread the message.

The only way to achieve perfection is to do it by deceiving others. Now is that real perfection?

I’ll leave you to ponder on that one. πŸ˜€

Take care, πŸ™‚
