As if by magic, mere hours after I mentioned it right here on tbni.blog the official announcement has come…

The Classic SNES is coming on 29th September 2017 and will be priced at $79.99 / £79.99 (although Smyths Toys currently have preorders listed at £69.99.)

You are going to have to be quick though Amazon have stopped preorders, ShopTo have it marked as ‘Sold Out’ and Game is just crashing. This is going to be another Mini NES scenario and the popularity of it is fuelling this SNES even more!  eBay already has listings for £180 and eBay.com has preorders listed at $299!  Keep an eye on places like Tesco, Asda etc who will probably start their preorders over the next day or so so in the quick so you won’t have to rely on eBay and Gumtree scalpels!

UPDATE : In relation to the RRP of this watch it is unlikely any retailers will know the Price before the end of March. 

Breitling Head Office have issued a press release but gave no further information. 

This watch is due to be launched officially at BaselWorld in March and should be available from Authorised Dealers from late May (still TBC).
When I get further I will post further. 

All I can say on this one is WOW!  Haven’t found a price yet but I am looking!  I had promised myself that my next Breitling would be a Hurricane 24, now they throw this into the mix!

iOS 9.1 now available – Activates Apple News App for the UK

If you live in the UK, are an Apple user and have updated your gear to iOS9 you have probably been left wondering where on Earth is this news app I heard all about?

Apple released it to the US in iOS9 but to ensure it worked, allegedly, the rest of the world had to wait. (Workarounds did exist such as changing your phone’s region). 

Well now the wait is officially over. Download and install iOS9.1 and you will be greater by that nice new shiny News app sitting right there on your homescreen!

See you all soon!

20/09/2013 – Happy iPhone 5s Day

So I completed my annual iPhone queuing yesterday at the Apple Store, Belfast returning home with a new white iPhone 5s 64GB.

Stocks were certainly low and the gold variant sold out almost instantly.

I can anticipate that desirability will increase rapidity now as stocks of other models sell out. Prices on eBay are already well inflated.

I will follow up with my thoughts and feelings on the IPhone5s and iOS7 in due course.

If you got one, enjoy!

22/03/2013 Gears of War Judgement Release Day

Today is release day for the latest instalment in the Gears of War story. This one instead though of focusing on the hero we have grown up with namely Marcus Fenix, it focuses instead on the rather ‘lippy’ Damon Baird.

The story basically picks up immediately after Emergence Day and follows the happenings to Baird’s ‘Kilo’ Squad.

iPhone ‘5s’ getting ready for an early launch?

iPhone 5s on route?
iPhone 5s on route?

The internet rumour mill is now rife with chatter that the ‘iPhone 5s’ is getting ready for release!  The iPhone 5 is still like gold dust in many stores, so is it likely that an 5s will be in development and ready for testing so soon?

After the ‘new iPad’, and then the ‘iPad with Retina Display’ I think it is more than possible in fact I’d go as far as saying likely!

This extract pulled from the web pretty much says it all…
