i was dragged to the mall by my wife the other day to do some birthday present shopping and we stopped in to hot topic. They actually had a shelf with boxes of different flavored (dead and dried) crickets for sale! i might go back and get myself a box if i can stomach going through the mall again.

Micron Lands Broad "Slide To Unlock" Patent

uncanny Re:just wondering -- Win8 ? (211 comments)

I decided to install windows 8 pro on one of my computers to try it out since i wasn't using it much anyways (and i practically get windows 8 free from work). It actually has a slide to unlock as the default. Instead of CTRL-ALT-DEL, i have to click on the bottom of the screen, and slide up.
this might be a good thing if they get someone like microsoft into the battle
