BioShock 2 Released
Actually M. Night Shyamalan wrote Bioshock 2's script but it was canned after they found out he was one of the masterminds behind 9/11
Network Security While Traveling?
"Dame los lentes"
The Homemade Hard Disk Destroyer
Remove and make use of the magnets.
They are valuable and extremely powerful, so make sure you don't put them near your watch or cell phone.
Here is a DIY knife hanger I made a few years ago:
Are Game Consoles Ruining DLC?
I agree and the perfect example for this is Grand Theft Auto IV.
The only exception so far this year has been Street Fighter IV.
Printable Batteries Should Arrive Next Year
We should start beta testing "Adblock plus - News papers and Magazines special edition"
New Left 4 Dead DLC Coming Next Month
There are a few Custom Campaigns that you should try, both for single and multiplayer.
The first one, Death Aboard, looks like as if it was made by Valve itself. It's really polished and has probably the best final level.
The second one, Dam It!, it's only one large level but it provides adequate challenges.
There is also a "Dawn of the Dead (2004) remake" custom campaign coming soon
Why Do Hard Drives Keep Getting Bigger?
Sure, with can have a 4TB Raid'ed HDD for (relativity) cheap to store anything we will ever need. Also we have 256GB Kingstone USB pendrives available right now, but how about batteries?
After a really hot summer and a little overclocking, my original VAIO battery duration went from 2 1/2 hours to merely half and hour, maybe a little more.
Same applies to my AA rechargeable batteries my wii motes use, my Black And Decker drill, My Logitech MX revolution soldered battery, my Ipod nano, etc. They all last half (or less) they used to last when were new and only after 2 years.
I wish we had something different, that lasted years, something nuclear like the Fallout universe...
Licensing Dispute Threatens Future of Skype
She can always use Portable Skype in her Notebook.
As long as her internet connection isn't filtered she won't get in trouble.
Kingston Unveils $1000 USB Flash Drive
Since I got rid of my 3.5' 1.44MB drive and disks several years ago, cheap USB Flash Drives have become their replacements.
As long as the pendrive is fast and robust enough, I don't care much as size. 1 or 2GB are ok for the use I am giving them.
I have a dedicated and encrypted drive for my work, another with personal data that's in a Ziplock inside my safe, another one in the internal USB port my motherboard has, another one in my DVD player front USB port, another four in those mini hubs behind my pc, etc.
If I need better and faster portable storage with respectable size, I use my 300GB WD Passport Essential that got in a Amazon deal. It has multiple partitions, some encrypted.
Checked out from the library right now, I've got ...
In this new century when it seems you don't have time for anything, specially reading books, I love to disconnect myself from the world and grab a science fiction book from my backlog (I usually hunt for deals @ Amazon or used bookstore) and spend hours alone and in silence enjoying them.
If the author takes the time to detail the surrounding where to plot occurs, using your imagination it may feel just like watching a blockbuster at the theater.
An example of this is Max Brook's World War Z. A Zombie apocalypse novel that I may have read tree times and I just can't stop doing it. That way it graphically narrates everything keeps you wanting to continue reading. Same Thing happens with Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
That doesn't mean that I don't watch movies, tv or play games, it just means that you always should use some of your time for reading a book, specially if you are on vacation.
Microsoft To Offer Windows 7 On USB Thumb Drives?
No, he said he wanted a Windows Executable with a nice GUI that would automatically download the right soft (Some custom ISO) and let you store everything you need in your USB Pendrive, like codecs, office alternatives, Firefox, etc.
Something my parents could do over the phone as long as they have USB booting as default to migrate.
SSN Required To Buy Palm Pre
I live in Argentina and in order to legally buy a cellphone you need (to have and) show your DNI (ID) and not only that, they also do 2 photocopies of it.(The store keeps one archived and the other goes to the government for investigation).
A lot of people are actually banned from buying equipment or new cell lines, so they often go to the black market to fulfill their needs.
Regardless of that, I only use my D.N.I. (National ID document) for voting and bank related paperwork. For general ID we got a CI (ID card) that according to the law we should carry it at all times). Oh, also we need a driving license if you are driving so there goes ID # 3.
Why Natal Is a Big Deal
Xbox Project Natal : Felicia Day
"I can't wait to throw a fireball."
When watching a movie, I like to add calories via ...
With all the problems we have right now most people gladly pay that fee in order to put your brain in standby for 2+ hours and enjoy some blockbuster with big explosions, car chases and hot chicks, like the upcoming Transformers movie...
The Age of Steam
I'm from Argentina and I bought Left 4 Dead for $37 during the holiday sale deal.
I already had the pirated version but wanted to play online (hassle free) and have the latest future patches or (free) DLC from the moment they are released.
You could say I bought not content but a license to play it buy I'm fine with that given that I played countless hours online so far (compared to the offline-only/buggy/abuse-cheat online servers from the pirate version).
Another odd remark is that the retail version was not yet available in my country, so Steam was the only legal way to buy it back then.
Also I got the $10 Team Fortress 2 deal a few weeks ago and I'm loving it.
How many torrents are you seeding right now?
I mostly do torrents from a private page I'm a member. I have to maintain 1:1 ratio to avoid getting banned, but if you are ok with the rules you will mostly download from 100Mbps seedboxes.
There is no sense in linking the page as it is invitation only and I don't have any now, but my point is that you shouldn't rely only on TPB and mininova if you are looking for exclusive content or older releases that nobody seeds them anymore in public trackers.
Do Video Games Cost Too Much?
Everything in Europe is expensive due to their overrated Euro.
Not a coincidence that now with the economic crisis several countries in the EU are considering the devaluation of the Euro or getting their own currency back.
USB Flash Drive Comparison Part 2 — FAT32 Vs. NTFS
There is another file system you may consider if you use Windows Vista SP1 or Windows 7 exclusively
Same here in Argentina. We got a hell of an economic crisis back in 2001 that torn our country apart, affecting either poor or rich people.
So far only the auto industries got hit and the rest may notice recession in the upcoming months, but in now way it's gonna be like before..
We got stronger from the experience and a now regular folks avoid bank issued credits, save cash in multiple currencies and even stock food (to battle inflation).
In the next 12 months, the Middle East will be ...
We should nuke Middle East from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
