Win a Wii from Engadget

March 2, 2007

So Engadget is giving away a Wii in celebration of their 3rd birthday. I want to win this Wii… but there is a catch. You have to create a screensaver for Engadget. I think I could make a good screensaver, but I don’t know how. Does anyone know of good software for creating screensavers on […]

Google Maps Now with Traffic Info!

February 28, 2007

Google Maps has added a GREAT feature. You can now see how traffic is in your area…well at least in the major cities. I think this is something that makes the iPhone look a little better. Even though the iPhone doesn’t have any GPS capabilities, you can use Google Maps to get a better idea […]

Wii Have a Porn Problem

February 28, 2007

This is just plain silly. I understand wanting to protect kids from porn, but this is getting a little silly. A Christian anti-porn website called thinks the Wii needs some warning about its porn capabilities. Ok… just because something can access the internet doesn’t mean it needs a porn warning. That would be a […]

Movinflicks…Free Movies?

February 28, 2007

I saw Ghost Rider last night. Yeah, yeah…it sucked monkey balls. And usually I would be pissed that I just spent $10 to see a crappy movie. Well, I wasn’t pissed after watching Ghost Rider because it didn’t cost me a thing. Now I have no idea how legal or illegal this website is. My […]

Snoop Stick…For Sneaky Bastards

February 26, 2007

While this kind of Tech is cool…it is also very shady. The Snoop Stick allows you to install invisible software on a persons computer and then monitor what they have been doing on that computer. All you have to do is plug in your Snoop Stick into any internet enabled computer to spy on your […]

The GameCube is No More…

February 22, 2007

Well it was about time. With the Wii doing so well, there is no reason to continue making new GameCube systems. Nintendo of America’s VP of marketing and corporate affairs, Perrin Kaplin, said “Are we producing any more GameCubes? No. But do we have the inventory there for people to still purchase? Yes.” So say […]

Black iMacs and 8-Core Mac Pros Expected Next Month

February 22, 2007

I just saw this on Gizmodo: “MacScoop claims to have the inside dirt on next month’s rumored Apple announcements, saying we’re in for a full barrage of hardware releases, including a black 24-inch iMac and 8-core Mac Pros (no word on whether they’ll be sporting new designs).Also in store for us are 15-inch MacBooks and […]

Can You Go without a Computer for a Whole Day?

February 21, 2007

Personally, I CAN shutdown my computer for a whole day. The 24th falls on a Saturday, so I won’t have any work to do. This will be good for me. Maybe the weather will be warm and I can get some fresh air and take some good photos while I am outside. Can you do […]

Throwdown! More Blu Ray vs HD DVD Action

February 21, 2007

I just read this article from Gizmodo and it was a pretty interesting breakdown of Blu Ray and HD DVD. For the most part I had been hearing that the quality of both formats was equal. Well according to some studies, they are not. Here is a brief rundown of which format rules: HD DVD […]

Mac vs PC…Old School

February 21, 2007

This is an old ad from a 1996 issue of MacAddict. We can all see where the new Mac vs PC commercials got their roots from. In defense of all Mac users back in 1996 (including myself), we never looked like douche bags like this Mac guy does. I get the whole “Mac users are […]
