Can you teach an old snake new tricks? I hope so.
I don't know about you, but my first thought upon seeing Nvidia's new Shield handheld gaming console was as follows:

In the age of smartphones, MP3 players, tablet PCs, and high-quality handheld gaming devices, people need all the electricity they can get their hands on, even if they have to strap it onto their bodies to carry it around.
Almost lost amidst the insanity of a weekend packed with both Penny Arcade Expo East and South by Southwest was this amazing Angry Birds 3D spectacular.
There's a reason Sony wants so badly to block jailbreak device's access: now that the code for the things is out there, people were using everything from mobile phones to calculators to get at their PlayStation 3s.
