dioAT 532x400 Ronnie James Dio ( July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010 )Never thought I will be writing this so soon, here it goes. Ronnie James Dio was an American heavy metal vocalist, songwriter and an inspiration of vast amounts to all musicians around the world. He performed with Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, and his own band Dio. His most famous work is known on his first Black Sabbath album called Heaven and Hell as he replaced Ozzy Osbourne. This was the album that captured my attention at 11 years old and has been one of my favorites ever since. To many, Dio was known as one of heavy metal’s most powerful singers, renowned for his consistently powerful voice and for popularizing the “devil’s horns” hand gesture in metal culture.

I was fortunate to see him in concert twice, it was something magical. The last concert I have seen him in was about two years ago in Radio City New York where he and members of Black Sabbath got together to re-tour the 1981 Heaven and Hell album. This was the last time I would see him live and in many ways I am very thankful for that, simply because it was one of the best concerts I have ever been on. When the song Heaven and Hell came on, I did something unthinkable and very un-metal but very genuine – I shed a tear :-) There is a connection I have with that song and the album in general which is hard to put into words. I can’t say I had an extremely tough childhood, but when it did get tough, that old dusty Heaven and Hell album always got me through – that is the magic of music and that was the magic in his voice.

On 25 November 2009, his wife/manager announced that Dio was diagnosed with stomach cancer. On the morning of May 16, 2010, he died after a six-month battle. He was 67 years old.

His music will always be in many of our hearts, especially mine. I will miss him dearly. I hope he’s still gigging when I cross the other side!

    PlayStation Phone – No internal memory? That seems kind of weird since I doubt this thing will use UMD. Also, isn’t the PSP2 coming out next year? Will they make a PSP Phone 2? I’m kind of skeptical on this one. well, i can’t edit…but i wanted to add this. i wont be surprised if sony adds some type of adapter add on to the PS3 (something to support the IR blasters, and maybe a small unit within that add on that has more RAM) so it can support google tv. It would make so much sense for sony to be even more of a presence in the living room, other than what the ps3 can already do. If google tv ends up working out all the kinks, and getting better…i wouldn’t be surprised. On top of that being a selling point (a huge one) over the Wii and similar to the Xbox integration w/ att uverse, you’d be able to get the PSP phone and the ps3 to work all buddy buddy together. the possibilities are endless if you ask me. This would be called product synergy sony…listen to me

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
