and function! Fisker is entering the

high-end automotive market with the Karma

plug-in hybrid. If you don’t know, that’s when you plug your car into an

electric outlet, and the power stored in the battery is what drives the vehicle

for the first set number of miles (40, for instance) before the gas kicks



in theory, if you charged it every set number of miles, you would never need

gas. They plan to produce 15,000 annually, showing up state side in the end of

’09. Look for them in a rap video soon, and then remember where you saw it



last new toy I want to show you is for the social gamer. It’s the WiiSpeak, and it was the talk of the

town at E3 last weekend. You should be hearing more about that in AllHipHop Gaming

this week! WiiSpeak is a mic allows individuals or rooms full of people to talk

junk while getting their game on.


next time, have fun!
