I came across these interesting pictures from New Launches today that I thought were really neat. These photos were taken inside the Tokyo sewer system and look nothing like the sewers we have around here. As far as I can tell, these aren't mock-ups nor was Photoshop used. So take a look and feast your eyes on one serious sewer system.
It's late and I'm tired, but I wanted to let everyone know that the new official Square Enix store is officially opened for business.
Offering everything from Dragon Quest to Final Fantasy, the store will satisfy even the most hardcore Square gamer in all of us.
Instead of talking about the digital home today, I thought it might be fun to relive the days of old and help us all develop a greater appreciation for the 'digital' in digital home.
Some people have asked me what the digital home is and what makes it up. Sometimes I'll go with the obligatory, "Well, imagine a home that's full of the most advanced technology money can buy. And in the process, imagine your home making your life just a little better. That's the digital home." Other times, I'll try a more direct … Read more
Well, I'm writing this on Firefox on my new 50GB (assigned) Vista box -- the iMac. Yes sir (or ma'am), this beautiful new iMac is running both Windows and Mac OS X quite well.
I was quite impressed by the ease of installation and Vista actually installed quite well too. All in all -- after just twenty minutes of running Vista on my new Mac -- I'm quite impressed with both operating systems and especially Boot Camp.
Look for a pretty serious hands-on with this new iMac on Friday.
Oh and in case you're wondering about … Read more
OK, so I bought the new 24-inch iMac yesterday at the Apple Store and I'm in the process of getting it ready for some serious use. Now, as I've mentioned before, I own a Vista box and an old Compaq laptop besides my MacBook, Mac Mini and now, the iMac. But, for the first time, I will be installing Windows on an Apple box with the help of Boot Camp and report here how it went.
So far, I've downloaded the Boot Camp software and have my Windows Vista Ultimate in waiting next to me. Next, I … Read more
As a guy who prefers silence over noise and high-quality music playback over garbage, I'm an ideal candidate for noise-canceling headphones. And while I know these headphones have been out for a while and most of the people who already own them are the only people who care about noise-canceling headphones, I couldn't resist taking a look at the Bose QuietComfort 3 noise-canceling headphones.
The Bose QuietComfort series of noise-canceling headphones were originally designed as a way to block out annoying noises. If you're a frequent flyer and you can't stand the sound of the roaring … Read more
As a person who owns a custom-built desktop, Mac Mini and a few laptops, I once found it hard to believe that anyone would actually believe that the death of the desktop computer would be coming around the corner. I've heard the argument set forth in other arenas and scoffed at the possibility of such a popular product being thrown away in favor or a more versatile machine. I was wrong.
The desktop is a dying breed -- it's as simple as that. I had this epiphany recently when I had to run down to my local CompUSA … Read more
How many times have you logged on to your favorite gambling site to put a "friendly wager" on the Eagles to beat the Cowboys on a beautiful Sunday afternoon? If you can say you've done it on more than one occasion, you might be the person the government is trying to "protect."
For at least the last year, the federal government has been earnestly doing its best to shutter any and all gambling sites that may illegally allow you to drop some change on the outcome of a sports game or other gambling alternative. But … Read more
If you've been following the tale behind Wikia, you would know that Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has something up his sleeve that he believes will revolutionize the way we all search the web.
According to the company, Wikia has four main components: the indexing of the Web, developing a search engine application, an algorithm, and using people to help filter sites and rank results.
And while the first three are pretty standard, it's the fourth component that has me shaking my head. One of the highest costs associated with starting a search engine is buying enough servers and … Read more
I normally don't do this kind of writing and I try not to go off topic too often, but I couldn't resist this time around.
As I was making my daily rounds on different sites getting a feel for what's going on in the tech industry, I couldn't help but think of one staggering issue I have always found with writing: rarely do we thank you, the reader.
Take a look back and think of how many articles you have read from any number of writers and try to count how many times you were actually … Read more
