Fly or Die: The Nintendo 3DS, Rockmelt, And Mobile Wallets
s the new Nintendo 3DS all that? Does Rockmelt have a chance? Will mobile wallets ever be adopted by real people in real stores? CrunchGear editor John Biggs and I tackle these questions in this week's edition of Fly or Die. Watch the video to find out who our surprise guest is this time after we give our verdicts on his company's product. The Nintendo 3DS uses simple stereoscopic 3D graphics that really pop out and combined with a gyroscope effect creates an incredibly immersive experience. You might look like an idiot playing it because you move your whole body around unnecessarily, but it is very addictive. Biggs wrote up his initial impressions here. Remember Rockmelt, the Chromium-based browser startup backed by Marc Andreessen?
