If you haven't already harassed Mom and Dad into getting you a new phone, you might want to insist on adding a Samsung Gravity 3 to your back-2-school gear haul. The affordably-priced (to see how affordable, see below) 3G phone boasts a sliding keyboard (using the phonepad to type is sooooo 2001), a 2.0MP digital camera that can take both photos and short videos, and comes pre-loaded with the social networking application Social Buzz.
Best of all? It's only $49.99!

Late last week, Jordan Brand sent out a teaser booklet filled-to-the-brim with images of its Holiday 2010 sneakers and clothing styles.
And, since I'm a giving GearHead, I figured it would be fun to share the pics with you guys*. I mean, what's the fun in oogling over sneakers by yourself? Am I right?
To the right is a shot of the new Melo M7, which Carmelo Anthony will wear during the 2010-11 NBA season. And after the break you can check out which Air Jordan retro's will be released this fall, as well as the new Spizike winter boots and a whole lot more. So get to clicking!

The start of the 2010 NBA season is only a couple months away... which is still waaay to far off for my taste (CAN'T WAIT!). But here's a little something to tide my fellow hoop-heads over until things tip-off.
See the sneaks to the right? They're called the Under Armour Micro G Black Ice; they're also the kicks Milwaukee Bucks Brandon Jennings will wear when he suits up for the new season...
Did you know the 51st US Open of Surfing was held last weekend?
If you did know, you're aware of all the awesome surfing, skateboarding and BMX action that took place over four days in Huntington Beach, CA. You also know some pretty-sick gear was unveiled, including new sneaks from skate-superstar Paul Rodriguez, and that, overall, the weekend was pretty AMAZING!
If you didn't know...

My main problem with Nerf blasters of yesteryear has always been the same: they never seem to hold enough ammo to get me through a game of Capture the Flag, and they never fire darts fast enough.
Man oh MAN does the N-Strike Stampede make such problems a thing of the past...
Check out the All-Star editions of (from top) Gonzales, Morales and Angel's soccer boots!Courtesy of Adidas
Basketball superstars sporting souped-up versions of their signature sneakers has pretty much become an NBA's All-Star Weekend tradition (one that's way more exciting than the eventformerlyknownastheSlamDunkContest, imo).
But if three of Major League Soccer's big-time players have their way, customized kicks will soon become a major part of MLS' All-Star festivities as well.
Javier Morales of Real Salt Lake, Juan Pablo Angel of the New York Red Bulls and Omar Gonzalez of the LA Galaxy will each be wearing modified models of their Adidas soccer boots during the 2010 MLS All-Star game, which takes place tomorrow night in Houston. The boots will boast all-new colorways, as well as the initials and numbers for each player...
