• And Sony Said, Let There Be PSP Firmware 3.70

    Image via Akihabara News Personally, I stopped upgrading my PSP‘s firmware when Dark Alex left the scene a few months ago. Firmware 3.41 or thereabouts. The little guy does all I need it to do.

  • Back to School 2007: Real College Student™ Advice from "JL"

    Here are two tips: 1.) If you’re 23 and decide to take a beginner’s Japanese class at a local community college, be prepared for the onslaught of 18 year old ass hats who apparently know all there is to know about life, and are so hilarious that they should make a “funny” comment in class every thirty seconds.

  • Avoid Roaming Charges On Your iPhone

    A clever fellow by the name of John, not our John, has figured out how to avoid ridiculous roaming charges when traveling abroad by simply taking out his SIM card. Yes, this negates any possibility of using the phone, but you can at least use the Wi-Fi to browse the web and check e-mail. Simple, yet very effective.
