• Two Battlestations: Pacific gameplay trailers because we love you

    It could just be me, but these trailers from Eidos for Battlestations: Pacific are starting to look alike and I can’t tell if they’re just changing the transition screens while using the same gameplay footage. Anyway, here are the two latest videos with the first supposedly showcasing multiplayer online while the second tries to reiterate the fact that you can play as the Japanese… Read More

  • Killercopter UAV snipes you with onboard .338 precision rifle

    Not terrifying at all! And of course, it’s flown with a modified Xbox 360 controller. How do they expect to get headshots with that? Mouse and keyboard, baby. But I digress. This robocalyptic aerial hunter-killer is 26ft long, goes 117mph, and can carry a payload of 150lb. That means it can carry a sniper rifle and a hugbot. Read More

  • Kutcher Surges Past CNN On Twitter — But You Can't Unfollow Either

    Up until this point, despite all the press he was getting, Ashton Kutcher was behind CNN in the race to become the first Twitter user with a million followers. Not anymore. Kutcher surged past CNN on Thursday evening, likely clearing the last hurdle that stands between him and Ted Turner’s doorstep — he promised to ding dong ditch the CNN founder if he was the first to a… Read More

  • Dell Vostro A90 available — it's like a Dell Mini 9 except it says Vostro A90 instead

    You’re a serious business person who needs a serious, um, netbook like the Dell Vostro A90. You can’t show up to a sales pitch with a weiner-ish sounding Dell Mini! There’s nothing mini about your can-do attitude and proven track record. The Dell Vostro A90 may simply be a Dell Mini 9 in sell-the-sizzle black but in this tough economy, image matters more than anything when… Read More

  • Psystar's Open(3) caught in the wild

    It seems like just yesterday when we were unboxing our very own Psystar system, and apart from some build quality issues, were surprised at how well it worked. The Open(3) system they announced last month was expected by some to be a no-show, what with the ongoing dispute with Apple, but it looks like at least one person with a camera has gotten his delivered.

  • Real-life Mirror's Edge: parkour with handheld camera

    If you were one of the few people who both liked Mirror’s Edge and didn’t get motion sickness (I consider myself one), then you may proceed to watching the video. If not, you might want to skip it, or at least get yourself in the mood by watching some speed runs. After that, you will probably be ready to watch this parkour expert do a bit of free running with a camera in-hand. Read More

  • Watch Out, TwitPic: PhotoBucket Is Coming At You With TwitGoo

    PhotoBucket, the FIM-owned photo sharing goliath that sees over 25 million monthly uniques, is taking aim at becoming the dominant photo sharing service on Twitter. The company has quietly launched TwitGoo, a media-sharing service designed from the ground up to be Twitter-friendly, allowing users to share photos with only a few clicks (and movies are on the way). PhotoBucket used to be one of… Read More

  • We're getting a Viliv S5, what do you wanna know

    The Viliv S5 is about as hot as mobile computing gets. The tiny Windows XP machine comes packing a 4.8-inch WSVGA screen, 60GB HDD, 1.33GHz Atom CPU, GPS, and so much more. We’re stoked, but we’re curious what you want to know about it. Obviously the battery life for one, we all know product discriptions are generally pipe dreams and this guy is suppose to get six hours of 720p… Read More

  • Time Warner Cable chickens out, no tiered Internet pricing (for now)

    Huzzah! Our whining and bitching actually worked. Time Warner Cable Inc. is shelving its plan to bill customers based on how much Internet traffic they generate, following mounting public and political outcry. via AP Read More

  • There were Tea Parties in Second Life too

    Jesus, Mary, Joseph! We fleetingly mentioned those Tax Day Tea Parties yesterday, but this is too much. That’s right: Tea Parties in Second Life, the game that, um, is still popular? (Not a lot of buzz about it these days, I mean to say.) Anyway, here’s a few photos of the in-game protest about in-real-life issues. Because that’s how minds are changed, in online video games.

  • Microsoft hints at 1 v 100 launch with teaser trailer for the Xbox 360

  • Video: Durabook D15TS review (spoiler: it fails)

    Durabook sent over one of their semi-rugged notebooks for testing and we had a whole series of test planned. However, the notebook failed the first and most basic test: a 2 foot drop. We initially planned to let a group of toddlers play with it, and even run it over with a Suzuki GSXR 600 sport bike. The fun stopped with the drop though. Thankfully, we got it on video, which is after the… Read More

  • It's a Socialthing: AOL's Plan To Take On Facebook Connect With Lifestreaming and Chat

    If you want to take a peek at how AOL plans to take on Facebook, you need to look beyond Bebo (the social network it bought for $850 million last year) to theBoot, a country music site hidden away off in a corner of AOL Music. A very interesting experiment is going on at theBoot that represents a major plank in AOL’s social-networking strategy. It shows how AOL plans to take on… Read More

  • At last you can check your email on your 3D mouse

    This amazing piece of tech is more of academic interest to me than anything else, since I can’t imagine the kind of work one would have to do to necessitate such a device. I mean, obviously CAD and 3D modeling, that sort of thing, but I can’t actually wrap my brain around how it would all work. Its little dial actually moves with 6 degrees of freedom, allowing you to do all kinds… Read More

  • It begins: Palm Pre trickles out to accessory manufacturers

    Wow, who would have believed it? The Palm Pre actually exists outside of private tradeshow demos and the hands of celebrities? If that’s actually a real, functional pre and not a mock-up or a well-done knockoff, it looks like accessory manufacturers have began getting shipments of the much coveted Sprint handset. An anonymous Ludle employee tipster just posted a few shots of the Pre… Read More

  • Pirate Bay server heads to Swedish museum

    Hey, have you guys heard of The Pirate Bay? It’s this cool Web site that has all these things called BitTorrents.

In fact, a museum in Sweden will display one of the site’s servers as part of an exhibit. Read More

  • GameStop, the arbiter of the video game industry, would like to see some price cuts

    Since when the does video game industry bow to what GameStop thinks? Your guess is as good as mine, but the company’s CEO Dan DeMatto, wants Sony and Nintendo to cut the price of the PS3 and Wii, respectively. That’s all well and good—who wouldn’t want to see the PS3 at $199?—but why should GameStop be the kingmaker? Read More

    Well, the teaser site launched a week ago and we’ve known about the sequel for a long time, but today, Ubisoft “officially” announced Assassin’s Creed 2. And it’s coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC for the holiday 2009 season. Hit the jump for the complete breakdown from this month’s Game Informer and the second teaser trailer.
