Latest Panic Things

Just a quick update with this week's fun happenings around PanicTown!

Edge   We got a tiny — but thrilling — mention of our Katamari T-Shirts in what is easily my all-time-favorite magazine, EDGE. (See scan, left.) We also genuinely thank Takahashi for choosing us! (And if you don't read Edge, please do: it's the only video game magazine in the world that seems to be written for adults, using actual articles, with words, about interesting and thought provoking things. And the design! I could go on all day.)

Transmit Review   Here's a nice review of Transmit 3.5 from Paul Stamatiou. (Thanks, Paul!) Let me know if you come across any!

Panic Nano Contest Extension   We've extended the deadline! There are only 12 Panic-branded iPod nanos in the world. Apple made them for us at our request. The Panic logo is etched on the back. They're awesome. Ten of them went to Panic employees. One went to a lucky Unison user named Hans. (Really.) And the last one? It can be yours! Just buy Transmit if you haven't already, before March 1st, and you're automatically entered. The odds are great!

Ultimate Blogger   Panic employee and guy-who-makes-it-happen Mike is launching Season Two of the web's best blogging reality series, The Ultimate Blogger. If you blog, and you blog well, and you have fun blogging, you need to enter. And if you don't like working, you can pull a Gizmondo and just buy your way in. Hurry — time is almost up!

MACTABLET!! WTFBBQ   Steve seems to found exclusive images of the top-secret MacBoard Pro Lite! (Strange that he sits right next to me and he didn't mention this, but whatever!! LOLZ)

I hope everyone is having a nice week!


Menushade is nice, but I kind of like the menu bar's pearly grey up there. What I'd really like is an app that makes the menu bar translucent. I imagine that would be a little more involved.

I was all excited about subscribing to Edge, based on your recommendation, but then found out it's published in Britain and costs $108USD to subscribe to it, ouch! Unless you know of a place to get it cheaper than directly from them?

Derek: As of very recently, you can pick up individual issues of EDGE at Barnes & Noble and, lately, Borders. They're about a month late, and I think they cost abot $10 per issue — which might seem outrageous compared to, say, Entertainment Weekly, but I think it's worth every penny and then some. It's the only magazine I keep/collect.

Occasionally, in the US newstand copies, they'll put in a blowcard for a super special US subscription price that's generally much cheaper that what's online. I'd keep your eye out for that!

(Or, you can bite the bullet and blissfully pretend you didn't just spend $100 on 13 issues of a magazine! Works for me!)

Yeah. Guitar Hero for us poor PAL gamers. We finally got Minna Daisuke Katamari Damacy four weeks ago by the way...

Thanks for the tip, I'll have to go buy a single copy and see if it's worth the "investment". :)

Actually, there's 13: don't forget Tim's first one with the busted screen we sent back. Maybe it's already been turned around on eBay for thousands of dollars.

Alice from the UK here. Can I suggest you offer girl-shaped shirts too?

I bought one of your 'small' shirts, but it's too big and too long and I'm saddened, for I lurrrve my katamari.

Why is Panic only for boys? :(
