Security through holograms
Years ago, people may have associated the word "counterfeit"
with a seedy-looking character selling designer goods under
his trench coat. Today, the scope of counterfeiting rings
has gone beyond the knock-off Louis Vitton bags, Gucci
purses and Rolex watches—though that has not stopped either.
On March 2, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
agents raided a Vernon, CA, warehouse, and seized 350 cases
of Yu-Gi-Oh! trading cards, the largest cache ever
recovered. Officials at Upper Deck (Carlsbad, CA), the
company licensed to distribute the cards, said the cards
seized would retail for almost $3 million if they were
genuine. The ring was discovered when a vendor in downtown
Los Angeles offered to sell an ICE undercover agent 250
boxes of counterfeit cards for $36,000.
Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Review
When it comes to portable gaming platforms, the Sony PSP is
hands down, bar none, the absolute best system you can get.
The first thing you'll notice when playing one is the
graphics which fall somewhere between a PS1 and PS2. For a
handheld unit, that is an awesome acheivement. But as every
other company that's tried to step into the ring against
Nintendo's Gameboy has learned, graphics don't make a better
game system. But then again, no other company ever made a
Sony Playstation that fits in the palm of your hand. And to
be fair, the PSP is better than the Playstation ever was.
