AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition: Taking Back the Crown
I agree, and $500? wow. It is nice to run games at a decent frame rate, unfortunately for Radeon users their driver support seems to be falling behind their hardware by quite a lot. My Nvidia 560ti runs my favorite game Tribes Ascend with full bling, while Radeon users of higher end cards report all sorts of issues.
BTW the new Tribes is FTP..Join me https://account.hirezstudios.com/tribesascend/?referral=1207516&utm_campaign=email for anyone who remembers tribes 1 and tribes 2, you know why you should give it a shot, for anyone who has never tried a tribes game...well, you are missing out.

Braid Creator on 'Evil' Social Games
Initially attracted to Mafia Wars due to it's similarity to a good text rpg I had played for a while before Facebook way around, I have grown disillusioned with all the Wall spam and NON-real interaction that I found the game to be about.
Glad I never stopped playing the original.. If you want to see what a Social game should be more like try http://www.torn.com/130690 Yes I would get a referral bonus, but only if you make it to level 10, Which I doubt many would make it to just in the course of checking it out.

FPS Games That Need a Remake
Yes...to all of the above.
Unfortunately these days much of the original tribes2 team is said to be working with some of the guys from WOW to make this instead. http://www.firefallthegame.com/
I am watching this carefully. I still play tribes2 every other week or so thanks to the tribes Next team. and it is IMHO the best FPS ever made.

Very different than the final product.
Google Introduces New Android Features
I really don't understand all the complaints about battery life.
I can count the number of times I've had my phone reach less that 25% power and I use the phone in addition to the web and mapping/gps functions nearly everyday.
I do have a "cradle" that I drop it into when I get home, plugged into my computer to download files that also works as a charger.

Nice try, except that “the US Hospitality Trade Association” appears not to exist, and there is nothing about this in any news feed anywhere.
All the links on the web point back to this one page.
So either provide a source for the story or you’re a liar.
