Happy belated birthday, Sonic!

Butt-kicking hedgehog turns 15, parties in NYC.

Last week at DigitalLife, a couple of reasonably important announcements were made. There was that new Treo that comes in pretty colors. And a few whispers about Vista. But there was also something that the gaming crowd might consider more important: the 15th birthday of Sega's classic video game character Sonic the Hedgehog. Yeah, his first game came out in 1991. Feel old yet?

Happy birthday, Sonic!

Sonic was kind enough to pose with some hotshot reporters at a DigitalLife kickoff party. From left: CNET TV's Rich DeMuro, Sonic the Hedgehog, and yours truly.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube.
