  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Phu Bai Valley Trailer

    EA just released a brand new trailer of their upcoming DLC for Bad Company 2. Looks sweet if you ask me and it will set you back 1200 MS. Onslaught, the last (and only) DLC for Bad Company 2 was not satisfactory and I do hope that this new download is not just a bunch of weapons and maps. The Multiplayer Expansion Pack will be available this winter. Read More

  • A Pre Owner's Take On webOS 2.0

    Now that it’s clear that webOS 2.0 is happening I’m very happy inside. As a Pre owner I had my ups and downs with this phone. Hardware is not so great (however quite resistant to damage), the processor is sluggish, the memory is not enough to open more than a few cards at the same time. I also have constant problems with the headphone jack being stuck in headphone mode making me… Read More

  • Volkswagen Amarok Camper Mod Hurts The Eye

    Look at it. Something is definitely wrong with this one. It looks like as it could crash on it’s bottom any second. I don’t really get how the modern front design can be matched with the back’s 20-30 year old standard caravan look. They also seem to cut the car at the wrong place. Now what’s more interesting is that you can detach the caravan part yourself if you want… Read More
