Big thanks to Ted Regulski for sending this one in — a group got together and remade Contra using the Little Big Planet platform… incredible.

This is just awesome… it starts off cute and goes up from there: P.S.> It’s proof that animals dream. P.P.S.> Cats are better than dogs.
I currently have a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 — I got it a little over 2 years ago and have loved it. Lenovo support, while crumby at first, really came through the other time I needed them — calling to schedule a repair on a Saturday morning in order to get my repaired laptop back to […]
Huge thanks to Marc Chung for sending along this great reference. It’s a breakdown of all the JDK exceptions and textual descriptions of what they represent — so if you are designing your own API or just working on your own app and want to make sure your use of particular exceptions (e.g. IllegalArgumentException) is […]
As I’ve been reading more about the T-Mobile G2 plans, I’ve been running across mention-after-mention of this “Cupcake” branch of the Android OS that Google has been working on that will include a lot of updates that people have been wanting – most notably the addition of the virtual keyboard finally. The benefit there for […]
I think it’s important to know about the good a company does as well as the bad. There are a few companies out there that I have enjoyed my time with and T-Mobile is one of them. While I’ve never had a big enough problem to call in the help of their award-winning customer service, […]
I think we can all agree that Rihanna is a good looking woman… she’s pretty much the opitome of “pop star” — good looking, tallented, no personal drama, no demons in her closet like drugs or alcohol… she does her thing, and we buy her CDs. Rihanna has been dating Chris Brown for a while […]
Huge thanks goes out to Laurence Hartje for this one… he sent it over and it crippled me in my seat, and then I showed it to others and it crippled them too. The amount of concentrated precious in this picture is uncanny….
Speculation has been flying around the web for months now as to which of the HTC phones is going to become the platform for the T-Mobile “G2” — or rather the follow-up to the popular T-Mobile G1 (Video Review). Back in December or January the general opinion was that the G2 would be based on […]
With the recent discovery by Anandtech that JMicron-based cheap SSDs can introduce multi-second lockup/lag in a system and that Intel’s ultra-pricey X25-M SSDs didn’t suffer from the problem, it was looking like folks that had to have an SSD and were willing to pay for it had a chance at salvation… not so fast. PC […]
AT&T invented illegal wiretapping, monopolies and crushing corporate power, but what they also bring to the table is exclusive rights to Apple’s much-desired iPhone. When the iPhone was first announced on the AT&T network, I still remember the following response from a group of friends about 20-strong: 50% – Sweet! I’m getting one! 50% – […]
Caught the introduction of this story over on OS News — apparently folks have been voting on the addition of a global, application-context sensitive menubar in Gnome for a while. The design of the bar is very similar to the way the global bar in Mac works. For those that don’t know, there is a […]
Every since I got my Infrant (now NETGEAR) ReadyNAS NV+, I’ve been using the Print Server feature of it to hook my HP LaserJet 1200 series printer to it. Unfortunately, it’s always exhibited strange printing behavior, more specifically: From most applications, the first time I try and print, the Print job/command is completely ignored. So […]
Those are tears you see in my eyes… tears of Olympus-joy… of blood-spilling, pixel-boob-admiring Olympus-joy. The God of War III trailer is out, and is no more of this sneak-peak stuff from before — it’s gameplay-proper: For the HD version, click here.

Is this just rediculously precious or is it just me? Some foxes were wrastling on a trampoline until one of them figured out what trampolines are for… and then things just went crazy-cute from there:
The Onion is awesome… for all the Sony-haters out there, I thought this was brilliant: Sony Releases New Stupid Piece Of Shit That Doesn’t Fucking Work
(Click Image to Enlarge) This absolutely fascinates me… what you see above is a world map from Eastern Telegraph from 1901 showing the break-down of the companies world-wide wiring networks. You think of what we have today, and I’m still impressed that ships can spool out and drop down enough cable, long enough, to run […]
Well it’s official, Capcom confirmed today that the leaked viral trailer on YouTube that many thought was the trailer for Dead Rising 2 is infact the trailer, more specifically, this: No release date set yet, but it looks like the new plague takes place in Las Vegas, with the story playing out in a casino […]

Here are the highlights: Slim: Just over 1/3 of an inch, as thin as most magazines Lightweight: At 10.2 ounces, lighter than a typical paperback Wireless: 3G wireless lets you download books right from your Kindle, anytime, anywhere; no monthly fees, service plans, or […]
The new Splatterhouse trailer dropped recently and honestly, it looks pretty good. Sort of a combination between the theme of Painkiller, mixed with the gameplay of Prince of Persia a bit, combined with some God of War — hard to go wrong there! The one annoying thing with this trailer (not the game) is that […]
HP has just dropped news about their upcoming netbook the “Mi”, and besides running Ubuntu 8.04 it is actually rocking a completely custom UI designed by HP specifically for the Netbook. Looking nothing like Canonical’s Ubuntu Netbook Remix distribution, it seems that HP went back to the drawing board with this and implemented their own […]
This is badass, gamerslastwill put together some quick tips on how to re-use those 3D glasses from the Super Bowl, and NVIDIA’s new 3D-enabled drivers (from the GeForce 3D Vision technology) to get some 3D-effects while playing Left 4 Dead. You’ll need the following things before you get started: Windows Vista or XP Nvidia 8xxx […]
