Pokewalker more accurate than traditional pedometers

This one's going to be a brief post - I'm far too busy enjoying the royal wedding festivities on TV. I wish Will and Kate the best of luck, and hope the British monarchy's "dysfunctional" period is over. But I digress....
Anyway, an Iowa State University (woohoo!) study showed that the Pokewalker - yes, that little doohickey that came with Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver - is not only cuter than your ordinary pedometer, it is also more accurate than your ordinary pedometer. The details of the study can be found on the ExerGame Lab blog.
Now if I only knew where my other Pokewalker went....

Pokemon Global Link now open for business!

The Pokemon Global Link just opened today after a 2-week delay, and I must say, I like what I see. Not only can you have amazing adventures catching Pokemon in the Dream World, you can also download stuff like C-Gear skins and Pokemon Musicals to your copy of Pokemon Black or White. I highly recommend you bookmark the site today.
