Wii Warm Up: To Bedazzle or not to Bedazzle

Yesterday we showed you the major award given to a Smash Bros. tournament winner: a Wii covered in Swarovski crystals, which formed the images of Mario and Bowser.

DS Daily: Stylus Bling

The DS Phat's stylus was anemic. The DS Lite's stylus is serviceable. But is it good enough for you? We've seen quite a few people use far larger styluses, perhaps meant for a tablet laptop or giant ... touch-screen ... thingy. We've seen pimped out versions.
