Ms. Pac-Man turns 25, joins iTunes

The round-faced girl with the red bow and the unstoppable appetite turns 25 this year according to Namco (Midway actually released the game in 1981), and she looks like she hasn't aged a day.

She's also still working. Rather than sit around all day and eat energy-pellet bonbons, Ms. Pac-Man is now available as an iPod game on iTunes. For a mere twenty quarters -- okay, US$4.99 -- fifth-generation iPod owners can play the game with all the original mazes and interstitial gags. In one concession to the twenty-first century, you have the option to skip the original music and sound effects and listen to music from your iPod library instead. May I suggest Pop Will Eat Itself's "Eat Me, Drink Me, Love Me, Kill Me"?

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
