  • Toshiba Releases Several Laptops, One of Which Has HD DVD Drive

    I love it when companies release a bunch of products simultaneously. That either means 1) they want to flood the airwaves with news of their products or 2) none of the products are all that hot, so they release them all at the same time to dull the pain. My opinion, not anyone else’s here. Right, so, Toshiba just announced an HD DVD-having Qosmio and a few new Satellites. The Qosmio… Read More

  • Why Xbox Live Costs $50

    I, and many others like me, pay $50 per year for the privilege of hearing 12-year-olds curse and wish bad things upon my family while playing on Xbox Live. But why am I paying $50 for this when I can do the same on a PC for free? Says a member of the Xbox Community Team: … it goes back to this unified system. We have to have voice communication, text communication, now we’re… Read More

  • iPhone Will Be Activated By iTunes

    Call it convenience or call it more fiddling to do, but make sure you call it Apple’s final decision. Lucky iPhone owners will have to come home and sync their iPhone with iTunes in order to activate it. Now normally I’d say this would be an annoying process that Apple should have dumped on AT&T, though when you think about it, the iPhone is also a music and video player as… Read More

    ZFS is in, ZFS is out… OK, so now we know that ZFS file system support is in Mac OS X Leopard. The read/write support was just seeded to developers according to reports online and no one but complete nerds will notice unless Apple makes it the default file system.

  • New York Will Put You in Prison if You Sell Violent Video Games to Minors

    At what point are video gamers, of which I am only nominally these days, going to tell their oh-so-concerned elected officials to stop fiddling with their hobby? Here in New York, our esteemed state legislature had a bill on tap that would make selling a violent video game to minors a Class E felony. (I just bought the Wii edition of Resident Evil 4 on Sunday and was rather bemused to find… Read More
