Our cliché cop-out of a name is still holding strong... it might stick. If anyone's got something better, leave a comment and if we use your suggestion we'll send you a sweet iPhone 5 case from SEIDIO.

Episode 1: Geektastic in Akihabara

Episode 2: Shiny in Shibuya

Episode 3: Shinjuku
This week, AkihabaraNews contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke stood around in beautiful, eclectic Shinjuku waxing geeky on the latest tech news.

Shinjuku, another of Tokyo's cultural and economic hearts, is home to government, world-class shopping, throngs of intriguing weirdos, the world's busiest train station, the headquarters of gigantic Japanese companies, a variety of street performers, scandalous Kabuki-cho, and, what is arguably the best standing-only noodle shop in Japan (top secret). And there's so much more - we'll definitely be going back.

While visiting the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building's 45th-floor observation deck, our hosts met a lovely young American couple on the last night of a 5-month honeymoon. They consented to an interview, during which it was discovered that they had the exact same Sony RX100 camera as our editor. This of course led to much bonding.

Covered Stories Include:

Do give us your suggestions for future locations, your feedback, your criticism, let us know if Reno should grow back his awful beard, any corrections, call-outs, tips. If you just wanna make fun of us, we can take it. Trolls with flair and originality will receive extra points and a cookie.

Have a watch. Share. Let us know. Maybe win an iPhone case.

You Tell Us: Did Sony's Sexed-Up PS Vita Ad Deserve to be Yanked? - AkihabaraNews.com
The YouTube spot features(ed) a seductively fem-British medical professional breathily placating and reassuring an implicitly male patient struggling with uhhh...struggling with himself...a little too much. It’s well beyond innuendo, but then in the reveal it turns out she’s not talking about self-interfering at all (watch below).

TokyoStreetView: Todoroki Valley (4K VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
An environment unique to Tokyo, Todoroki Valley is a simple walking trail adjacent to the Yazawa River and surrounded by a very dense forest that totally shields it from Kan-Pachi Dori, one of Tokyo’s busiest roads. While the Todoroki Valley’s 1.2 km walking trail is pure bliss, it’s only at the end of the voyage that you can discover yet another hidden wonder: the Todoroki Fudo Temple. Here you can enjoy some delicious mochi (Japanese rice sweets) and ramune (Lemonade), and you have the option to let the gods hear your prayers and wash away your sins.

Thanko released "Mobile Battery Na Video Camera", 3000mAh mobile battery that has a small video camera built-in.

The camera has a 5MP CMOS sensor and is able to shoot full HD movies (1280x720, 30fps) continuously for up to 8 hours. The video you take will be saved in a microSD card (maximum 32GB).

By selecting Motion Sensing Mode, it can shoot for up to 48 hours.

REVIEW: Casio Selfie-Cam (Me, Myself & I)

The Casio EX-TR35 is a peculiar beast...
Were you to look at the specs, you’d see a 12 megapixel 1/23 inch backlit CMOS sensor mated to a 3.8mm (Full frame equivalent of 21mm) lens in a small, but not particularly impressive, plastic body.
