• Review: Halo Wars

    Finishing Halo Wars must have been bittersweet for Ensemble Studios. On one hand, they’ve created a fine addition to the Halo franchise, but on the other hand, it was their final project and they had the pressure of turning a shooter into an RTS for a console. It could have ended up brilliant or absolutely horrendous. But you need only look at their pedigree and know that the franchise… Read More

  • Chinese boy killed when height adjusting mechanism in chair explodes

    I kind of hope this is some sort of sick, twisted joke but apparently a 14-year-old boy in China was recently killed when the pneumatic gas cylinder – the thing that controls the vertical height adjustment — in his chair exploded, sending fragments of the chair into his rectum. Read More

  • Did Last.fm Just Hand Over User Listening Data To the RIAA?

    That leaked U2 album is causing all sorts of trouble. The unreleased album, which is due out on March 3, found its way onto BitTorrent and was downloaded hundreds of thousands of times. That, apparently, sent music industry lawyers over at the Recording Industry Association of America into a fit. As a result, word is going around that the RIAA asked social music service Last.fm for data… Read More

  • What ever became of the Survival Car?

    Back in the 50’s, safety features in automobiles were not exactly what you’d call a priority. People were flush with post-war money, and the car manufactures were selling vehicles as fast as they could turn them out, sometimes with fatal results. Keep in mind that cars during that era frequently did not have any of the safety features that we have today. In fact, they usually… Read More

  • Lost city of Atlantis found on Google Earth?

    UK tabloid The Sun has an article claiming that someone found Atlantis using Google Earth. As someone who’s personally interested in ancient mysteries, paranormal phenomena, and cryptozoology, I’m really happy that a tabloid has this story because it totally gives credence to the idea that Atlantis does, indeed, exist and should definitely silence all the naysayers.

  • Mix Twitter and Digg, add jokes, get Popjam

    Popjam is a new ‘social humour’ site which has launched using the Twitter ‘friend/follow’ model of social networking. In fact – but for the images of LOLcats and videos – it is so similar to Twitter in appearance and operation that it could be mistaken for a pure Twitter clone. But what we have here is a kind of Twitter-meets-Digg-meets-b3ta. And the more… Read More

The player in U2’s MySpace Music page featires a single, but if you click on the top album in the sidebar, you can hear the entire thing. MySpace says that the… Read More

  • EA chief says recession is winnowing away the weak, lame, halt

    Never waste a crisis, friends. EA CEO John Riccitiello is saying that the recession is essentially pushing the junk off of the gaming store shelves, leaving only the best and brightest games. Debatable, but let’s hear him out. “We did get fat in too many places. It seemed like anyone who could draw a guy with a gun with a crayon could get funded. At least for EA, we got a little… Read More

  • Nikon prepping a new entry level DSLR, the D5000?

    According to the rumor, the D5000 will take over the role as Nikon’s entry level DSLR. Details aren’t exactly plentiful, but it sounds like it would be on par with the D90’s image quality, lack a AF motor like the D40/D60 and have more than three AF points. Sounds possible, right? It basically would be a stripped down D90 which would hopefully come to market around the $600 mark. Read More
