    KaZaa's old model may be down and out for the count, but the men behind the old green giant are trying at this whole digital music thing once again with a new subscription/social service called "Rdio". The social aspect of Rdio will apparently focus around the ability to friend other Ridio users, see what other users are listening to, and comment accordingly. Hmmm, sounds a lot like, Last.fm and several other lesser known music streaming services. Oh, and all this can be had for $5-$10/...

    While many of the so called "hardcore" classic gamers already have gigabytes upon gigabytes of old ROMs, a few of you out there may want to stay more on the legal side of things. Today, Steam is making that a great deal easier with 11 new classic Sega Genesis games ripe for the pickin'. The best part is that they're only $2.99. Catch the list inside... (more...)...

  • The camera phone for…camera people. Altek Leo: megapixels/3x optical zoom.

    Camera phones and smartphones geared towards mobile photographers always boast over who has the most megapixels. Though any self respecting photographer worth his weight in camera gear will know that megapixels don't really mean anything anymore. It has more-so to do with lens quality, zoom, and censor size/quality. The Altek Leo however, is looking to change things up with a 14megapixel censor and 3x optical lens... (more...)...
  • Corsair outs three new models to Force series SSD’s. Top out at 240GB.

    Two current arguments against SSD's are (1) price and (2) low capacities proportional to price. As NAND gets smaller and cheaper, SSD's will inevitably drop accordingly. While the last couple of years have seen such events, I still find that SSD's haven't reached the sweet spot yet. Thanks to Corsair's new additions to their Force family of SSD's, we're one step closer to digital storage nirvana. Corsair's latest drives include the F60, F120, and F240 (60GB, 120GB, and 240GB respectively) ...
  • Steam to drop on Linux in near future?

    For gamers on Windows who are tired of keeping track of physical discs, digital distribution is where it's at. Seeing as how Games For Windows Live pretty much sucks, that leaves Steam as the only legitimate source. In my experiences, I've been fairly impressed with Steam's selection as well as daily deals and weekly specials. Last week Steam for Mac was unveiled telling tales of gaming goodness soon coming to OS X. The last piece of the puzzle -- Linux -- is aching for it's turn... (more....

    Lala users will want to take as much streaming music in as they can these next few weeks. Today it's been made officially known that on May 31st, the service they've come to know and love will cease to exist -- at least as Lala.com that is... (more...)...
  • Steam for Mac coming May 12th.

    Like a gaming session here or there but don't fly with the Windows crowd? No worries. Gaming on Mac, while not as "high-end" as it's windows counterpart, has made vast strides in the last few years. On May 12th, another great stride is being made -- Steam will officially be released. If you're not familiar with Steam, a simple explanation is this: They're basically the iTunes of digital game sales/downloads. I myself have purchased a few games from Steam on Windows and have been overall p...
  • DRM at its finest: New Avatar DRM causing playback woes on Blu-ray players. Only legal purchases affected.

    It never ceases to amaze me how uterly retarded, stupid, and incompetent the movie studios and "the old Hollywood" in general really are. Todays fluster cluck of DRM spotlight features Avatar and the unplayable disc. I'm seeing reports all over the web (Consumerist in particular) of new Avatar customers unwrapping their new gift only to find it unplayable in their Blu-ray players. Effective DRM, huh? (more...)...
  • Capcom “evaluating impact”/polluting Final Fight: Double Impact with “always-on” DRM. Apparently, no lessons being learned from Ubisoft backlash…
    by Mike
    Posted April 23rd, 2010 at 8:51 am
    Another day, another game ruined by DRM. Or is it? A new development on the PS3 front is disappointing to put it mildly. Gamers across the blue marble we live on are noticing that trying to launch Final Fight: Double Impact when logged out of the PSN or in a location with network access are being prompted each and every time to log in. This would signal that Sony is testing a similar approach that Ubisoft is rolling out -- always-on network connections to play games. But is it Sony? (more...
