quote [ In a surprise move, Apple said it is to abandon its annual tech gathering Macworld after this January's event... ..."Apple is steadily scaling back on trade shows and in recent years is reaching more people in more ways than ever before," Mr Dowling told BBC News. ]
It's either the beginning of preparations for Steve Jobs' death, or it's just another wacky Apple move without any kind of explanation. A kick in the ass to Macworld and Apple devotees...

quote [ A "10" is not a score we give out very often. In fact, the last time we gave a 10 to a console game was Soul Calibur in 1999. A 10 doesn't mean a game is perfect -- it means a game is pushing boundaries, expanding a genre, and doing many things to a level so far above and beyond its competitors that they overshadows any flaws. ]
Surprising... Anyone played it yet? My PS3 nuked itself with the last system update, and I can't play...[games] [by teknokracy@8:12amGMT] [+8 Informative] [113 comments]

quote [ A wise man (Mel Brooks) once said, "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die." Updating that for the new millennium, you get, "Tragedy is when I make a typo. Comedy is when you get 60,000V of electricity pumped through you and I catch it all on camera." ]

quote [ Martin's legislation would require retailers on cash transactions to round final totals up or down to the nearest five- or 10-cent mark. Debit and credit card transactions would not be rounded. ]

quote [ LEGO Universe, the upcoming LEGO-branded MMO, can best be described as "LEGO Star Wars multiplied by a million" ]
This had better be everything it should be, and more.... forget the kiddie angle, this is the game I have been waiting to play for years! Imagine, co-op LEGO buildings and contraptions. Now I don't have to pry my friends away from their jobs and girlfriends to come LEGO it up with me!

quote [ There is a crisis facing internet radio: new mandatory royalty rates are so high that they will force most or all independent internet radio stations off the air. ]
"...as if a million internet radio stations suddenly cried out in terror, and then, suddenly, silence."
I have posted about this before. Now it's actually going to happen unless something is done NOW!

quote [ The Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) has announced its decision on Internet radio royalty rates, rejecting all of the arguments made by Webcasters and instead adopting the "per play" rate proposal put forth by SoundExchange(a digital music fee collection body created by the RIAA). ]
So basically, the RIAA is killing legitimate internet radio. I'm talking about sites like RadioParadise, who have dutifully paid their royalty fees over the last few years. BEAT THE RIAA! WRITE AND BE HEARD!
