    Secret controls for the new iTunes visualizer are like, totally out of this world, man

    Cool visualizers have had controls for as long as I can remember — as a somewhat foggy-headed college student, I spent too much time tweaking Milkdrop and Geiss and listening to Tool. Laugh all you want, but they understand me. The new iTunes visualizer has impressed a lot of people, but even with these hidden controls revealed it can’t approach the level of customizability available… Read More

    Apparently life’s NOT so good at LG nowadays (see how I did that?), as word’s come out that a former manager leaked almost 1,200 secret company files to a Chinese manufacturing company. The company, Changhong-Orion PDP-Chaihong, hired the 49-year old LG manager to give the company secret information in exchange for $300,000 a year, an apartment, and a car.

  • Lost in-game video: Not Penny's game!

    Lost in-game video: Not Penny's game!

    CAV has some video from the upcoming Ubisoft Lost game, which I suspect will be a stinker on the level of TMNT for the NES. However, they do offer up some plot details including a secret “Hot Coffee” cut scene involving Jack, Ben Linus, the Smoke Monster, and Charlotte. It gets weird but near the end but not nearly as freaky as the Desmond/Crazy Jungle Dinosaur love scene near the end. Read More

    Microsoft's Mystery Product: Game Table? Yah, Probably

    Gizmodo’s got word that Microsoft will be releasing “something totally new coming out of the Entertainment and Devices division, and it’s going to change the way people interact with technology.” At first we thought it might be the watermelon Zune Phone, but then we started asking around. Three different internal MS worker bees mentioned it’s likely a game table. No… Read More

    New Halo 3 Armor Types Discovered

  • Verizon Sales Rep Dishes on Contracts

    Verizon Sales Rep Dishes on Contracts

    Consumerist is running an interview with a former Verizon rep who is spilling the beans on that company’s customer retention policies and confusing everyone in the process. Essentially, he’s describing the metrics Verizon uses to reward their sales force and punish the foolish customer. His best advice? Don’t get the 2-year contract and, if you play your cards right, every phone… Read More
