Gadget of th Month

zune

Zune is the latest genius product from the Microsoft gods, a media player that comes with 4GB, 8GB, 8GB, 30GB or 80GB capacity, as well as a built-in FM tuner, wireless connectivity, wireless sharing and more to handle a huge collection of your free and protected MP3s, photos and videos. Connect with other Zunes and you are given three days/three plays to see if you like the music your friends are sharing before going onto Zune's network to purchase your own copy. Has the iPod finally met its match? -Jonathan Wong

Manhunt 2
For: PlayStation 2, Wii
From: Rockstar Games, www.rockstargames.com
Rating: 0 0 0 0
Don't get enough violence in your daily life? Deploy brutal executions, saw through enemies, stab them with syringes and use 70-plus weapons by playing as asylum escapee Danny in this shoddily-disguised snuff film simulator. Camera issues and deliberate, stealth-based antics may annoy some, but it's nothing a quickknife to the throat can't remedy. -Scott Steinberg

Transformers: Two Disc Special Edition
Starring: Megan Fox, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Voight, Tyrese Gibson
From: Paramount Pictures
Rating: 0 0 0 0 0
Finally, the one movie that needed to be made for all of the '80s generation comes to the big screen as a live action/CGI blockbuster. True fans will remember the animated version that popped out over 20 years back, but what a way to revive the Autobots' and Decepticons' look than with Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks art department. Throw in the overdramatic Michael Bay slow-mo sequences and you're guaranteed Hollywood gold. And what could be better than casting (most of) the original voices, like Optimus Prime? -JW

Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles
For: PlayStation Portable
From: Konami
Rating: 0 0 0 1/2
Though released in 1993, tragically, TurboGrafx-16 cult-classic Dracula X: Rondo of Blood never hit America--until now. Boasting new 3D visuals, sharper controls and revamped music, this portable conversion captures the original's side-scrolling, monster-mashing charm. A bonus port of equally-acclaimed cousin Symphony of the Night also proves a gruesomely good addition. -SS

Conan
For: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
From: THQ, www.thq.com
Rating: 0 0 0
As the wine-swilling, boulder-hurling barbarian, get medieval on opponents with axe, spear or blade. Granted, hands-on play's a tad repetitive, but you'll still have fun dismembering foes using blood-spraying combos and solving simple puzzles alike. Because, hey, nothing's more fun than "crushing your enemies and hearing the lamentations of their women." -SS

YP-P2
From: Samsung, www.samsung.com
Price: $199 (4GB)/$249 (8GB)
Rating: 0000
Portability's the current watchword when it comes to multimedia players--learn what it means firsthand with this 0.4-inch thick, 3-inch widescreen-equipped unit, which offers 16:9 high-resolution video playback. A suave touch-based interface lets you easily manipulate 4GB/8GB models, which also support music, photos, voice recording, FM radio and file storage. -SS

NBA `08
For: PlayStation 3
From: Sony, www.sony.com
Rating: 0 0 0 0
Hoop, here it is: delivering sweet 1080p, high-definition panoramas, this former benchwarmer scores with a winning combination of looks/playability. Physical movement-managed juke controls aren't all that, though goal-based upgrades and ill online multiplayer options hit nothing but net. -SS

Babe Blvd 2008 Calendar
From: Babe Blvd, shop.babeblvd.com
Price: $30
Rating: 0 0 0 0 0
Give yourself 15 months of blue balls with Babe Blvd's 2008 Calendar, featuring the delights of Nikita Esco, Pearl Nalani, Kay Valentine, Lisa Fleming, Leanne Bell and Jeri Lee to name a few. Hang `em on your wall and brag to your friends about your imaginary girlfriend. -JW

Lamborghini VX2
From: Asus, www.asus.com
Price: $2,699
Rating: 0 0 0 0 1/2
Combine a top auto manufacturer's fashion sensibilities and PC builder's technical know-how and you get this slick notebook, whose dazzling curves and glistening finish kick wow factor into overdrive. Boasts a Centrino Duo processor, Windows Vista and GeForce Go7700 with 512MB RAM--but the leather palm rest's our favorite snob-friendly feature. -SS
