Now playing: Watch this: Ep. 639: Where we can do this the easy way or the hard...

We almost lost Jeff last year to Batman: Arkham Asylum, the hugely popular video game based on the popular bat-mythology. Good news for gamers: The Dark Knight will return next year with a sequel called Batman: Arkham City. According to inside sources, Arkham City will debut on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC next fall, but you can watch the teaser trailer and even preorder the game right now!

Images of the next-generation Apple iPod Touch have been popping up on the Internet, and it looks like the next version will feature an updated camera with a LED flash on the upper left corner of the player, just like the iPhone. As do-it-all touch-screen music players take over, we wonder if there's still a market for standalone MP3 players like Apple's iPod classic.

Speaking of Apple, here's a Craigslist ad from a guy who hates Apple so much that he refuses to live with anyone who owns Apple products! The poster's name is Vince Thomas and he's apparently a big Android fan and sick of "big Mac guys," not to be confused with THE Big Mac Guy.

No iPhones, iPads, or any other Apple products are allowed in the apartment, and he goes so far as to check the phones of potential roommates to make sure they're not hiding any Apples. Also, Starcraft 2 experience is a "big plus," so please post a link to your profile if you respond.

If you're running short on digital music, Amazon just announced that it's selling 1,000 albums of digital music for just $5 apiece, a generous discount from the typical $10 cost per album on iTunes. They're not just bargain bin bands, either--head over to and you'll find albums from bands like Coldplay, Lady Gaga, and Huey Lewis; you can even search for the music directly to see if your favorite artist has albums on sale.

Guess who has The 404 BlackBerry for the weekend? That's right, I (Justin!) will respond all of your questions, comments, and love/hate mail for the next two days, so add our BBM #2482F452 and shoot me a line! Have a great weekend everyone!
