Nike losing its mojo: Brits naming their kids Adidas & Reebok.

And I thought naming them Espn was bad. Well it is, but you get my point. Joining young Ad and Ree on the playgrounds of the UK will be an increasing number of Gandalfs, Superman(s?) and Madonnas. What no Swooshes?

Playstation 3 brings reality to first-person shooter

PUTNAM, Conn. – Two armed thugs tried to rob a line of people waiting for the new Playstation 3 game system to go on sale early Friday and shot a man who refused to give up his money, authorities said. … In Kentucky, four people were hit by BBs in an apparent drive-by shooting as they waited for a Best Buy store to open.

And here in Boston:

Nearly a dozen police cruisers responded to Copley Place Mall this morning when a crowd of 400 people clamoring for the new Sony PlayStation 3 overwhelmed mall security.

Isn’t “mall security” an oxymoron? Or is it just staffed by them?
