  • Review: ZTE C88 for MetroPCS

    When choosing a cell phone, you look at price and features with the former being the biggest player, right? Ok, calling/data plans are also a big deal, but most consumers just want a cheap phone regardless. That much we can agree on. But what happens when you don’t want to deal with one of the larger carriers and you’ve got MetroPCS in the area, a carrier that offers unlimited… Read More

  • Dear People Who Make Horse Catheters and Want Us to Write About You: Cory tells you how to send us links

    Good old Cory Doctorow. Is there anything the man can’t do? He makes fiction, babies, and blog posts with reckless abandon and he has a nice soft head, like the head of a wee chick but a wee chick that can beat your ass in a conversation about Net Neutrality in a second.

  • New Street Fighter character 'El Fuerte' spotted

    I’ll be honest; the last time I played Street Fighter was on the SNES, so I’m admittedly out of touch with what’s what as far as world warriors go.
