About Nintendo Wii

The home video console Wii which is commonly pronounced as "we" is the production of the Nintendo. The predecessor of Wii is the Nintendo GameClub. The competitors of Nintendo Wii are PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The unique features of the Nintendo Wii constitute a wireless controller, and the 3 dimensional movement detector remote known as the Wii remote.

The idea of the Wii console was developed in 2001. Till April 2006, The Wii console was famous by the code name "revolution". The spellings of the "Wii" i.e. having two "i" is intended to convey the meaning of two persons standing side by side. This further implicates two players playing at the same time. The producer of the console gives several reasons for the adopted name of the game. One reason is as follows:

The sound of the "Wii" as "we" gives the implication that the video console is for people of every age and region, it is for everyone. Apart from that "Wii" is such a word which can be remembered easily by all the people of the world despite their language.

The Wii was released in September 2006 in Japan, North America, South America, Asia and Europe. Wii made a record sale in United States in 2007 breaking the records for the sale of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Wii has the honor of being the second best sold video console game in the United States and Japan after Nintendo DS. In Canada as well Wii left behind the Xbox 360 and became the best selling "next generation" video game ever. With the increasing fame and selling records of Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony faced losses in their productions.

The Wii remote is available in many colors like black, white, silver, lime green, and red. The console comes with a stand and can be placed either vertically or horizontally.

Red Ring of Death (RRoD)

The RRoD or Red Ring of Death as it is commonly known has proven to be an issue for at least one in three xbox 360 owners. It's becoming more and more noticeable these days as games that really start to push the Xbox 360's hardware to it's limits have come out.

The two games that seem to bring on the dreaded Red Ring of Death the most are Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4. It is so common for these games to cause the RRoD that there is even a class action suit being taken out against the manufacturers for supplying hardware that is not appropriate for playing the games they say it should.

The Red Ring of Death according to the manufacturers was an error prevalent in the first release consoles. Customers who bought the later released premium packs with larger hard drives and High Definition connections have not had to put up with the Red Ring of Death as much.

Microsoft has extended the usual one year warranty to three years, and the Red Ring of Death blunder has forced them to set aside $1,000,000,000. Yes that's right, a BILLION dollars just to fix and replace all the faulty xbox 360s out there.

Taking advantage of the extended warranty has it's inconveniences though. You must have proof of purchase, be the original purchaser, have purchased your xbox 360 from a licensed dealer, not voided the warranty already by modifying your xbox or opening it. So hard luck to anybody that heard about the overheating problems who installed additional cooling devices to their xbox. The manufacturer will not fix your Red Ring of Death

Hard luck to anybody that opened up their brand new xbox 360 to personalize it by changing the case, your Red Ring of Death will not be fixed for free. Also hard luck to anybody who purchased an Xbox 360 secondhand or otherwise from eBay or off a friend who overspent his allowance and couldn't afford bus money to get to school. The Red Ring of Death is your problem, not the manufacturers.

Fixing the Red Ring of Death through the manufacturer can take weeks, and that's a lot of precious gaming time down the tube.

The manufacturer has tried to convince everyone that the Red Ring of Death could be caused by any number of reasons, because initially before the extended warranty was issued you as a customer had to fork out $140+ to fix the RRoD.

This has backfired on them and cost them years of revenue.

The truth of the matter though, is that the Red Ring of Death can be fixed in under an hour, and you can do it yourself with just a few household tools that you probably already have.

I wrote this because my Xbox 360 suffered from the Red Ring of Death and I was able to fix it using the information in this E-book It has video tutorials, and the information site has free preview videos so you can see the sort of quality information you get.

Yes it DOES cost money, but the repair guide will save you a lot of hassle. It'll also save you money if you, like me, voided your warranty.

Repairing Xbox 360 - Basic Steps

The dreaded "red ring of death" is an extremely frustrating experience for anybody who is unfortunate enough to experience it. Today you are going to learn the basic steps to repairing Xbox 360 errors yourself- in doing so you will save time, money, effort and stress, and be able to get gaming again much faster.

Many people believe that the only way they can fix their console is to send it off to an Xbox 360 repair center, such as the large one that Microsoft operates. However, sending your console away means that you will have to wait quite a long period of time to get it back, plan for at least one-month/4 weeks. For this reason alone, you are better off repairing the problem yourself.

The first step to doing so is to determine the cause of the error. In most cases, it is overheating. This is something that affects almost all high-powered electronic devices, as the components will put out large amounts of heat as a waste product. Because there are few fans and heat sinks in the Xbox 360, the temperature rises rapidly, and the console will shut itself off to prevent further damage. You are warned of this by the flashing lights that appear in the power switch, as well as the fact that you will be unable to play any of your games/watch movies/go on Xbox live.

In order to repair your Xbox 360, you will need to purchase a repair guide, which is a collection of videos, photos, and text files that will show you how to find the fault in your console then fix it in the correct manner. The files will come in a downloadable package- most of them retail for around the $30-40 USD mark, which is a fairly reasonable price. Although I would love to show you how to carry out the repairs without a guide, there is very little chance that you could determine the fault and remedy it without the video and image files.

Finally, if you are tempted to try what is known as the "towel wrap trick", don't be! This may work temporarily, but will eventually increase the heat level inside your console, leading to further, irreversible damage. Also, having a bath towel wrapped around your console ruins it's styling just a little bit, don't you think?

Xbox 360 Three Red Light Error

If you're looking for information on how to repair your Xbox 360 yourself, you've come to the right place.

Forum rumors are ripe on the internet that there has been a spike in Xbox 360 returns, both valid and not so much.

This has lead to an increase in the return time for repaired Xbox 360s. I've heard that the turnaround time for Xbox 360 repairs has skyrocketed to as long as eight weeks.Before the manufacturers were offering the extended 3 year warranty they were charging $140 for Xbox 360 Repairs.

They put out a story that to do Xbox 360 Repairs was something difficult, their way of controlling the masses I guess. Their reasoning was something along these lines...

If we convince people that Xbox 360 Repairs are beyond their own DIY ability then they'll all have to pay us to fix their consoles.

The truth of the matter though, is that the Xbox 360 Repairs you need can be done in the comfort of your own home. A couple of class action suits later and they brought out an extended 3 year warranty on all new Xbox 360s.

Unfortunately, the extended warranty doesn't extend to everybody. If you bought your Xbox 360 second hand, they won't fix it for you. They won't fix your xbox 360 if you have opened the xbox up. There are a lot of ways to void your warranty, choose your poison.

If your warranty isn't valid anymore, your best bet is to actually take your Xbox 360 Repairs into your own hands.

The Three-Red-Lights blog has a step by step guide on how to permanently fix your Xbox 360, no matter what the error.

It has high res videos for every step so you can see everything in action. A lot of people have done their own Xbox 360 Repairs and saved themselves a lot of grief.

Dream Interpretation As a Science - Different Types of Dreams

There are dreams that give you information about your psychical world, dreams that give you information about the person you love, dreams that give you information about dead people, dreams that show you how you can be cured from a physical disease...

There are many different types of dreams, with a specific intention that can be identified and grouped together, because they show you something in particular.

So, I'm preparing a series of e-books, in order to show you each one of the dimensions of the dream messages.

The first e-book of the series is the e-book "Interpreting Dreams About The Person You Love", which is ready and will be available soon.

However, I'm preparing more e-books, according to each dream's type.

You'll see that your own dreams are a very important and useful resource of knowledge and objective information, which you must consider and trust, before any other type of information you may have, since the wise unconscious mind that produces your dreams is your doctor and your protector.

The main function of dream messages is exactly to prevent the absurd content which exists in the wild side of the human conscience to invade and destroy the human part of the human conscience.

You receive information about the person you love in your dreams because you need protection from the wild side, that would take advantage of your delicate state and try to imprison you in the labyrinth of craziness.

You receive relief, comprehension and courage from the wise unconscious mind, when you see dreams giving you information about the reason why someone you loved had to die.

You are calmed down and relieved when you see dreams predicting your future and showing you that you will win over all obstacles and triumph, even when you are at the beginning of your path, feeling insecure and doubting if you'll get there in the end.

Each type of dream shows you something very important for you. Therefore, this is a subject that you must care about!

Start giving importance to your dreams and writing them down. This is your first step.

Then, you have to learn how to translate the symbolic dream language, the same way you translate one language to another.

I simplified very much this translation, after continuing Carl Jung's research in the unknown region of the human psyche.

You'll realize that the dream language is not difficult when you learn the basics and that the information you can have only by translating your own dreams is so important that you'll acquire the habit to ask the unconscious mind the answer for all your questions when you sleep.

Then, you'll wait with impatience for the next dreams, because you'll receive there the bright answers you need!

Prevent Depression and Craziness through the scientific method of Dream Interpretation discovered by Carl Jung and simplified by Christina Sponias, a writer who continued Jung's research in the unknown region of the human psychic sphere. Learn more at:
