Pontiac’s New G8 GT does Spy Hunter

Pontiac’s new commercial for its 2008 G8 GT goes the retro route with a Spy Hunter, video game themed TV ad. I’ve yet to see the ad on TV, but it sure does Spy Hunter some justice. It’s probably the best GM commercial I’ve ever seen. It almost makes me wanna buy a 361-horsepower G8 GT…almost. Too bad there wasn’t any machine gun firing…

Specs and pictures of the 2008 Pontiac G8 GT after the jump.

Sneaker Keychains


Probably more for the Nike Talk members, but I couldn’t resist posting this. For sale at Iconic International, you can get your Air Force 1 and Air Max’s miniaturized and on your keychain for $7 a piece. Stylish and cute.

Kickback Berlin is also selling a few for 5.99 Euros ($9 USD) each.


Nooka Zen Watch: tells time through lines and bars


The Nooka Watch makes it ‘just a tad’ harder to read time. However, the Nooka will certainly add some stylish and geek flair to your credit. The Nooka Zen interprets the time in lines and dots displayed on its tiny monochrome LCD screens. It sports an hour, minutes, seconds, and am/pm display screen. Essentially, you have to count the bars to tell the time, although the minutes and seconds are marked (like a ruler). The Zen line comes in two variations: the Zen-H and Zen-V. The Zen-H has its interface in an horizontal fashion, whereas the Zen-V is in a vertical orientation (hence the ‘H’ and ‘V’ in the name)


The Nooka Zen line is available in various styles at Nooka’s online store, with prices starting at $250. Nooka also has more lines of watches available as well.


Super-light Frontier FRNL: Not quite a MacBook Air


The MacBook Air isn’t the only slim notebook in town. Introducing the Frontier FRNL, it’s lighter, but not quite as slim as the Air. It weighs 2.75 pounds compared to the MacBook Air’s 3 pound weight. However, what the FRNL can do that the Mac can’t is survive abuse. The Frontier FRNL has a waterproof keyboard and a super tough casing that can withstand a 2.5 feet drop and 265 pounds of pressure. If you take a look at the pictures below, it seems to also have a fingerprint reader similar to the ones on Lenovo’s ThinkPads.

* 800 MHz Intel A110 CPU
* 12.1-inch LED backlight LCD; SXGA resolution
* 1GB of RAM
* 80GB HDD
* Wi-Fi A/B/G
* Dimensions: 11.65 x 1.21 x 8.22 inches

Its specs sure leave more to be desired. 800MHz? What?


The Frontier FRNL is on sale for about half of what the MacBook Air retails for in Japan.
