On Wednesday morning, Novak Djokovic teamed up with UNIQLO CEO Shin Odake and Creative Direcor Naoki Takizawa to give the press a look at his new tennis apparel line. First, Odake explained how appointing Djokovic global brand ambassador is a key part of breaking into the US and global markets. Then the guest of honor joined Odake on stage to talk about his US Open kit and his partnership with the company. Creative Director Takizawa discussed his inspiration for the line, saying, “the national flag of Serbia inspired me when I was thinking about the color and design of his match wear. In particular, I was inspired by the shapes of the wings of the eagles that are on the flag, and with this in mind I began to draw lines in his match wear.” Djokovic demonstrated some of the more unique aspects of his US Open kit, which features a quick open zipper on the jacket and towel lined pockets.
Following the press conference, Djokovic hosted a photo session with fans, some of whom had waited in line for several hours. The 30 minute session started at 10:10am and by 10:40am, the line was still wrapped around the building and most of the way down 53rd Street. Excited fans were thrilled to get their photo taken with the tennis star. Some lucky fans got an autograph or a hug with their photo. The star was very accommodating. Djokovic’s longtime girlfriend, Jelena Ristic, even got in on the photographer action, snapping a few photos on her phone throughout the session.
The new collection features polo shirts and shorts in white, blue, navy, as well as track suits in white and navy. Prices range from $49.90 to $89.90 and the clothes will be available beginning August 27th at all three New York stores. All photos from Wednesday’s event are available on the UNIQLO USA Facebook page.

The next thing Microsoft Word 2007 does is allocate some memory for its editing needs.
Prior to going out to get a video game for a kid, ask them for
multiple games they are interested in. Or imagine having Lord of the Rings’ Sting,
a sword that lights up when orcs are near.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
