It’s not often that we toot our own horn around here, but I figured it’s Thanksgiving tomorrow and I’m giving thanks to everyone that is seemingly loving our +15 Frost Resistance beanie so much. In fact, it’s hit as high as #3 on the Amazon bestselling caps list:

    So it looks like NBC truly is insane. They split up with iTunes are now getting into bed with Amazon to sell their digital content… at you guessed it.. the same price it sold at iTunes for. And here’s another head scratcher for you. Though admittedly it’s a peculiarity coming from Sony so no-one should be overly surprised, but the question remains; what brilliant combination of people decided that in order to see any Sony video-game screenshot or wallpaper download you have to see this dialog pop up on every single image you want to see. So we’re talking about having to deal with this dialog box potentially dozens of times if you want to see the screenshots from some latest game they are either developing or publishing. No wonder the PS3 is doing so well.

  • Microsoft Zune down to $199. Ouch, I was really hoping for a real competitor to Apple here, looks like that was a dream.

    Geeky Distractions… end of August edition.

    Today’s big news is that NBC is dropping iTunes (no doubt cause of their stake in Hulu… nevermind the retarded name), and Apple in response is calling NBC out on its, to put it mildly, stupidity. Here’s how I envision the negotiations went:

    NBC: We want to renegotiate our contract.
    Apple: Cool, how about that iPhone, pretty snazzy eh?
    NBC: We’re doubling our wholesale prices
    Apple: Are you retarded?
    NBC: $4.99 / episode is the cheapz0rz!
    Apple: Seriously, are you retarded?
    NBC: We quit
    Apple: No wonder you retards are in 4th place.

    Now on to some other news:

  • Rock Band interview with Harmonix
  • 360 degree holographic display
  • Morrowind speed run in 7 and a half minutes
  • I’m not exactly sure what Microsoft is trying to accomplish with this “Art of the Office” site that seems to be promoting Macs?
  • And speaking of Microsoft….. poor 360′s still falling apart, even after being fixed, or newly manufactured
  • Of-course it wouldn’t be a good week without a little Sony bashing… Lair gets… 4.9/10 on IGN. Ouch. So much for that amazing exclusive title.
