There are a lot of good things about the R1F, because it really is great - it's a quality machine inside and out. So only mention the cons - the scratches on the tablet pen (because of the pen-slot not being smooth on the inside), the plastic notebook casing (wish it was metal!), and the non-airbag fitted hard drive (such as the IBM X-tablet).
Other than that, if you want the best tablet PC cheaper than other like brands, the R1F is the cream of the crop. The Fujitsu T4210 has a smaller screen, doesn't have a sharp design and is more expensive, and the Toshiba R25 looks boring, is heavy and looks boring.
ASUS R1F can be proudly named Ms Universe of tablet PCs, at least for now.

Wish to achieve the perfection one day, and you will be proud of me."

MySims is a forthcoming video game developed by EA Games for Nintendo's Wii and DS consoles and based on Maxis' The Sims series. MySims will be released in the Summer of 2007, according to a recent EGM issue.
Wii MySims gameplay revolves around players fixing up a house in their grandparents' rundown town where only a few residents live. The mayor also gives you the opportunity to lure new residents to the town. It is also revealed that "miserable" residents who don't like the player's town will migrate to a volcanic game location.
In contrast, the DS version takes place in a vacation resort with the player tasked with the job to lure in tourists.
Compared to previous Sims titles, MySims has a more cartoonish and anime-inspired look, with chibified character designs. They are modeled after the popular Japanese dolls Pinky Street.
In opposition to a fashion accessories and to the way these are apart from the body. She is dynamic, processing gradual changes in its shape and texture through time, enduring your lifestyle and becoming something unknown.For all reasons, La.Ga rises the question: “Can we wear anything that surrounds us?”, to which the answer is an absolute yes! More than the fabrics of clothing, it’s buildings, cars and furniture pieces that dress us all the time. Krv Kurva La.Ga is just a way of doing it.

Yoshitomo Nara (奈良美智)
Nara’s own explanation of his work, then, casts us as the aggressors guilty of betraying and attacking childhood innocence. When cast in that light, Nara incriminates himself as well, for his art is above all based upon the perversion of otherwise innocent subjects.
