  • Macs gaining ground on Steam. Still suck wind where it matters most — GPU/Eye candy

    I was having myself a good time last night searching for a new game on Steam when I stumbled across this little survey detailing the type of machines that flock to the popular service/storefront. It's interesting because Mac's have a pretty prominent position after a rather short time with Steam access. Specifically, a larger percentage of the Mac user base has higher amounts of RAM and more cores per CPU than their Windows counterparts. Though as any self respecting PC gamer knows, RAM and p...
  • 1PB (petabyte) physical discs touted by Romanian “Storex Technologies”. In other news: Physical discs are dying.

    Digital distribution may be the way of the future, but that won't stop disc creating companies such as Storex Technologies from touting their Hyper CD technology. Hyper CD's claim to fame is the lofty 1 petabyte (1,000,000 GB) storage capacity. Indeed, 1 PB is a ton of data and could prove rather useful in certain situations. But then you have the whole issue of it being another proprietary physical format. So is Hyper CD worth holding our breath for? (more...)...
  • KaZaa reborn — Subscription music service with a social twist.

    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...)...
  • Blockbuster toying with rental-by-mail for video games. Writing on the wall points to belly up position in 3..2..

    If there was ever a better example of how not to run a company based on old business models and physical inventory -- wait a minute... -- Blockbuster would take the cake. Anyone with half a brain cell can figure out that if you're business model revolves around physical goods such as movie rentals, at some point the digital transition is going to hurt your business. Apparently Blockbuster had visions of VHS and DVD's lasting forever in their unicorn land. The real world as of late hasn't been...

    Gamer are ya? I'll admit to my fair share of gaming sessions...ok...everyday. Hey, it keeps me young and is fun to boot. Like many of you out there, staying on the up and up on everything in the gaming world can be a chore at times. Feeds are a great way to stay on top of various sources for gaming news on the go. But even feeds aren't the best answer. With the dawn of the App Store however, it seems what everyone really wants are apps apps apps. One company joining the mobile app ranks is...
  • Spotify to branch out beyond the normal subscription/ad based music streaming business?

    Make no mistake about it, I love Spotify. Thankfully I got an opportunity to sample it about a month back for about 5 minutes and was instantly hooked. Living in the US however, I'm heartbroken that I can't access it. It's almost gotten to the point of searching YouTube for Spotify videos and living vicariously through the fortunate others outside of the US and it's ancient (read: bullshit) copyright laws. Today however, my longing for the UK based startup is going no where but up. An art...
