Well, thanks to Hendo, the professional skateboarder got on a “real” hoverboard.In a new video, Hawk, 46, jumps around on the futuristic skateboard at first before he gets more comfortable with the device and goes on a mini ramp. “This is real, folks,” he says. “This is the real hoverboard right here. So forget everything you know. This is it.”At the end of the video Hawk adds: “I want to apologize for the hoverboard prank. I thought it would be obvious that it was fake.”The video, which also features Dave Carnie, had more than 200,000 YouTube views after it was uploaded Monday. The video also inspired a series of comments from viewers, many of whom were … [Read more...] about Hoverboards Are Real, Sort Of: Tony Hawk Makes Up For Flying Skateboard Hoax [VIDEO]
We're pretty sure that there are some skateboarding games out there on the iPhone, but it's really difficult to imagine them without the name Tony Hawk associated to them. Even to this day there have been many that tried to emulate the success of the Tony Hawk skateboarding games on consoles, but few can remotely stand toe-to-toe with it. There was no doubt that the Tony Hawk franchise would eventually make its way into the mobile gaming world with a port of one of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games making its way to the iPhone. With that in mind, the man himself responsible for most of the success tweeted some news about the upcoming game and also posted a photo to keep people excited about it it. He tweeted, “In the PR world, this is considered “going rogue,” but I’m too excited to contain it. This is real & dropping soon.” Although the photo does clearly display him showing off the game so far, it's too quick to judge its playability on Apple's bundle … [Read more...] about Tony Hawk game is for “real” on the iPhone & “dropping soon”

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is already out on Verizon and globally, but one carrier that has not yet gotten it - and many wish it has - is T-Mobile. What do you know, T-Mobile might get the first ICS-based handset soon, if this tweet by the carrier’s favored Tony Hawk proves true. The famous skateboarder posted a picture of the Galaxy Nexus saying “I love T-Mobile.” Oops, but the carrier hasn’t released the device.Now, the picture shows the new data menu, and Hawk’s data usage which stands above the 2GB allowance on his plan - at 3.63 gigs. Now, there’s slight chance that this is a Nexus S, but it’s unlikely as the screen looks bigger, more like the one on the latest Galaxy Nexus.Of course, Hawk could have also just gotten the global version of the Galaxy Nexus and inserted a T-Mo SIM card in it. So whether that’s a hint of things to come or not, you’re to judge, in the meantime, though, don’t forget that if you don’t … [Read more...] about Did Tony Hawk accidentally leak a T-Mobile-branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus?
