Study Finds That "Extreme Gamers" Play 48 Hours a Week
If the study is only done in the US, then I don't think it do the name "Extreme Gamers" justice. Come to Asia, hell, go to Korea's "internet cafes", and you will find people who never leave the place. There are a lot more local mmorpg games here than there are in the States, and those are the type of games that suck your life away. And they are all PC games too, which will debunk the more console than pc claim.

Plus, a lot of the local Chinese already know the kind of crap that the government is pulling (censorship, propaganda, oppression, human rights violation, etc.). So by censoring websites, especially good websites, will only further infuriate its people.

Sony May Charge For PlayStation Network
Well, if the price is reasonable and they use the extra income to improve the platform features (connection speed, connectivity, etc.) and perhaps offer more free perks (game newsletter, reviews, etc.), then it will probably be worth it.
Religion in Video Games
How about someone create a game that occurs during the inquisition when the ignorant Christians killed thousands of people who wouldn't convert to their religion?

Initial Reviews of Google Wave; Neat, but Noisy
I always thought it would be nice if people in IMs could see what I'm typing, to feel more like a real conversation.
This reminds me a lot of ICQ's chat room. It was neat at first how I can see what everyone's typing in real time, but it's not so great when I become the one typing. However, most of the times I would prefer to be able to process my thoughts and perhaps check my grammar or spelling before I send it out. It's not always a good thing to be able to speak you mind and let the person on the other end to know about it simultaneously. From a reader's perspective, I would much rather read a complete thought, instead of having to wait for each word as they type. Showing that the person is currently typing is a good enough indicator that someone is trying to say something, so people won't be typing simultaneously.
