World's Loudest Alarm Clock!

The ending is worth the watch!

Red Gold, White Gold, Green Gold? Purple and Blue Gold?

In general the addition of silver will color gold green, and the addition of copper will color it red. Here is a nice red gold watch:

Black/Grey Gold:

Black gold is a type of gold used in jewelry. Black colored gold can be produced by various methods:

* Electroplating, using black rhodium or ruthenium. Solutions that contain ruthenium give a slightly harder black coating than those that contain rhodium.[5]
* Patination by applying sulfur and oxygen containing compounds.
* Plasma assisted chemical vapor deposition process involving amorphous carbon, and controlled oxidation of carat gold containing chromium or cobalt.

More recently a laser technique has been developed that renders the surface of metals deep black. A femtosecond laser pulse deforms the surface of the metal forming nanostructures. The immensely increased surface area can absorb virtually all the light that falls on it and thus rendering it deep black.

Blue/Purple Gold:

Purple and blue golds

Purple gold (also called amethyst or violet gold) is an alloy of gold and aluminium. Gold content is around 79% and can therefore be referred to as 18 carat gold. Purple gold is more brittle than other gold alloys, and a sharp blow may cause it to shatter. It is therefore usually machined and faceted to be used as a 'gem' in conventional jewellery rather than by itself. Blue gold is similarly an alloy, a mixture of gold and indium.

White gold is an alloy of gold and at least one white metal, usually nickel or palladium.


Yakuza 4 Announced, Yakuza 3 Coming to US Soon

Yakuza 4 known as Ryu ga Gotoku 4: Densetsu wo Tsugumono (Yakuza 4: Heir to the Legend) in Japan has been announced.

As with the other numbered entries, Yakuza 4 will be taking place in modern Japan, this time in the Tokyo district of Kamiyacho. It will star a detective named Masayoshi Tanimura, and a Yakuza member named Takeshi Kido.

Back in May, we mentioned that auditions for Yakuza 4 were underway, and as usual Sega will be featuring some top flight Japanese talent, with Tanimura and Kido be voiced by Hiroki Narimiya and Kenta Kiritani respectively. Both are stage and film veterans, with Narimiya's haircut (called the Narimiya Cut) being all the rage amongst Japanese teens.

The game will use new motion capture technology in order to get not only the actors voices but also their movements mapped perfectly into their corresponding character in the game.

Here are some of the girls from Yakuza 4:

Yakuza 3 aka Ryu ga Gotoku 3 is reported to be coming to the US and Europe soon. Can't wait!
