In preparation for the movie release of G.I. Joe, here’s some screenshots fresh off the EA-presses for the movie tie-in-game. I’m not clawing at my wallet at the moment: If you missed it, here’s the E3 announcement trailer… did EA spend an entire 5 months on this game? I think if they had just re-skinned […]

Marc Chung just sent this one in, got a kick out of it:
kallasoft would like to announce the initial release of the SmugMug Album Downloader. The purpose of this software is to help you download your albums from SmugMug onto your local machine on Windows, Linux or Mac. Comments and feedback welcome!
Engadget Mobile put up their (excellent) review of the HTC Hero recently and I got a lot of information out of that review that I hadn’t gotten anywhere else. More specifically the following highlights: Hardware – The hardware in the HTC Hero was rumored at one point to be improved upon the HTC Magic, that […]
Introduction I just purchased a Canon PowerShot SX 1 IS (not the SX10 — which has no HD video recording) to replace my existing Canon G9 (which is an excellent camera): What I really wanted out of the SX 1 IS was the 1080p @ 30fps video recording and improved zoom for traveling. Unfortunately when […]
Grant Gochnauer sent in a handy tip on using the MoveFile utility on Windows to schedule locked files to be moved at the next system startup. I’m sharing this here so the next time you get some pesky spyware or virus on your machine, you have 1-more way to combat it.
I can only describe the first Army of Two game as a “huge let down” — the game was dripping with potential, but due to either a lack of time or vision the team couldn’t pull it all together into the co-op insanity and wonderment that it was suppose to be. You ended up with […]
Jerry Green sent in a little nugget — it seems that with the advent of SMS-speak and LOL-talk, the hilarity that is now ensuing at the DMV while registering for custom license plates is increasing. You can now customize your license plate to a degree that would have otherwise been gibberish 10 years ago, but […]
I’m not a fan of Macs generally speaking, but due to recent realizations that Microsoft was never going to create an operating system that didn’t share fundamental behaviors with all past and present versions of Windows — I’ve decided to jump ship and get a computer that will “just work”. Keep in mind I don’t […]
Marc Chung just sent in a link to what I think is a phenomenal idea from the folks over at the SomethingAweful forums — doctoring up science fair photos to something “inappropriate”… this shit is gold:
I’ve been using Windows 7 since the RC was announced a few months ago and we’ve had quite a bit to say about it — mostly all good. Over the last month I’ve noticed a trend in my Windows 7 install (that I use as my primary desktop and work machine) that was feeling all […]
I’ve been wanting to see Transformers 2 since it was released, but noticed that every few days I watched the IMDB score, it would drop farther and farther down. Checking out Metacritic was even more dissuading, with a 35% overall score. I couldn’t believe how bad this movie sounded. I read comment after comment about […]
Summary [5.5 out of 10] Terminator Salvation is a terrible game whose unfinished feel, technical hickups and terribly scripted sequences all punish the player for trying to play it. Terminator Salvation has the feel of a game that only had 8 months of development time in order to make it’s launch along-side the movie. I […]
11points had a piece up showing 11 comparisons of celebrities from their high school year books and current date public images. About half of the year book photos resemble the celebrity that we know, love and hate today: While others were just down-right surprising: Not too shabby Seacrest… not too shabby at all. Anyway thought […]
Ok so I bought into the hype-machine that is everything-Nintendo and plopped down my $19.99 for a Wii MotionPlus when it came out and along with the only other highly rated Wii MotionPlus-enabled game that launched with it: Grand Slam Tennis. Here’s my single sentence description of the experience for everyone that was curious “Was […]
