    Atari sues German website over review of potentially pirated game

    From here. There’s a tactic in the movie industry where a movie is released quietly without press previews. When this happens it’s because the movie is a stinker and they want to put as much space between the first critical line (“I’d rather wet my pants and sit in my own filth than recommend that you watch this movie.” – Myra Conklin, Cat Fancy) and the… Read More

    ReviewGist.com Collates and Snips Product Reviews

    Sites like ReviewGist are great for consumers but not so great for gadget bloggers. By collecting a number of reviews and adding on meta-date like price and features, they automatically create collections of data what are actually quite useful when shopping and, unlike something like Amazon.com, offer more in-depth information than standard user-generated reviews. ReviewGist is similar to… Read More

    We made pR0n better

    I never thought about it this way, but it seems we — us bunch of nerds — have slowly changed the porn landscape. Regina Lynn at Wired points out sites like AbbyWinters.com and Kink.com [feel free to cut and paste but rest assured NSFW] feature models who are a far cry from the pneumo-bots of yore or even the charming ladies of mainstream lad mags.

    Cory Doctorow writes a pithy yet readable analysis of Facebook and its ilk, pointing out that these sites bind is us in ways that seem useful but are in fact perfunctory and useless.

For every long-lost chum who reaches out to me on Facebook, there’s a guy who beat me up on a weekly basis… Read More
