  • Order this beer pong table NOW!!!

    I played a lot of beer pong and flipper in college. It was fun, but it got a little unsanitary when people forgot to wash the balls after each throw. Drinking beer with whatever filth is on the table or floor is disgusting. My alma mater had a huge contingent of engineers and quite a few of them were in my fraternity, which makes me wonder why none of them thought of this contraption made by… Read More

  • Update: Mass Effect for PC drops dial-a-DRM!

    Yesterday we brought news that the PC version of Mass Effect would have a DRM feature that would phone home every 10 days to make sure you weren’t playing with a pirated copy. It’s a sucky system and people were upset. EA, though, listened to us bloggers and other gaming fans and has announced that when the game ships it won’t have the craptastic DRM system. There will still… Read More

  • MSI launches new pop-can sized "Titan" computer

    I suppose it’s a little funny that of all the Greek gods, MSI chose the biggest to lend a name to their smallest computer. This thing is really tiny. It hides a DVD burner, a 2.5″ SATA drive slot, 2 PS/2 slots and 2 USB, ethernet, and a real audio card. It’d make a mean little dedicated media or torrent machine if you had it connected to some network-attached storage… Read More

  • Official: PS3 will "probably" see DLC for GTA IV

Downloadable content is one of the things Xbox owners like to hang over the heads of PS3 fans when it comes… Read More

  • Is Pownce Developing A MP3 Player?

    Daniel Burka, co-founder and head designer for Pownce, has generated some buzz by posting a screenshot teaser of an upcoming release (shown above).

Just a couple days ago Pownce… Read More

    Online retailer Amazon has some ‘splaining to do. Texas officials are investigating whether or not the online retailer has a distribution center in Irvin, Texas. If they do, Amazon will owe millions of dollars in back taxes. The Supreme Court ruled in 1992, that states can collect sales from out-of-state retailers, if they have physical presence in the state.

  • Who says GTA causes violence?

    An 18-year-old kid in the UK was walking home after purchasing a copy of GTA IV when he was mugged and beaten by two ruffians who stole his game and broke his jaw. They were caught, likely for racking up a two-star wanted level. They should have hidden down with the bike in that alley. OK, this is getting way too real. You guys take care of each other out there, alright? The story here… Read More

    Flickr’d Post 900 about the upcoming transition to all-digital TV next February. Folks who live in apartment buildings with a shared, rooftop antenna should be concerned.

  • TimeTube: The Timeline That YouTube Should Build

    TimeTube is a new mashup from Dipity, the interactive timeline site, that takes the mostly unsorted mess of videos that is YouTube and arranges them by date, offering a useful (and often unexpected) perspective on recent events.

  • RIAA tech chief thinks DRM is still the future, thinks fire is magic, thinks the Earth is flat

    Oops. Someone forgot to tell Hollywood bigwigs that DRM is dead, consumers don’t want it, and it doesn’t really work that well anyway. At a conference in LA this week, a member of the RIAA said that almost all digital distribution schemes they can think of use DRM. The problem with DRM is it locks you into an ecosystem that only works with the DRM your purchasing. And you… Read More
