“Unbreakable” copy brotection broken, Transformers widely downloaded

“Unbreakable” copy brotection broken, Transformers widely downloaded

I would hate to be someone that worked to create new forms of copy protection for digital media. First, I don't like copy protection, as I strongly believe I should be allowed to do whatever I choose with my media. Secondly, it would really suck watching all of my hard work undone in a few days or weeks. A fine example would be the recent release of Transformers.

Rock Band demo showing up at local Best Buy stores

I found myself wandering into my local Best Buy in search of a a cable that I seem to have misplaced at some point. As I made my way back to the computer section I was greeted by the unmistakable sound of clicking drumsticks. If you've ever played the drums, you really can't miss it. Hearing that sound coming from the game section could only mean one thing: Rock Band.

Rumor – Google to announce phone plans in two weeks

Rumor – Google to announce phone plans in two weeks

Rumors about a potential Google Phone have been floating around the net for as long as I can remember. Or at least for several months now. The rumor mill has placed Google in talks with a number of different carriers and manufacturers over the course of the year, all without any solid confirmations from Google. However, if the Wall Street Journal's hunch is correct, Google will put an end to all the speculation in just two more weeks.

Rumor – 40GB PS3 will have 65nm Cell chip

By now we've all heard about a new 40GB model of the PS3 that will be available very soon. However, the big question is what exactly will be under the hood of the new console. We already know that it won't be playing nice with your old PS2 and (gasp) PSX games. Rumors are now pegging the 40GB PS3 as having something else different under the hood.

Logitech and Skype roll out new webcams

I've never been a fan of videoconferencing. Then again, I'm not really big on talking on the phone either. I'm perfectly content with using an instant messenger for most forms of communication. That's not to say that I can't appreciate the uses for the technology. Skype and Logitech have teamed up to make the best-looking picture possible when utilizing new Logitech webcams.

SiliconDrive USB Blade – Size matters not

SiliconDrive USB Blade – Size matters not

If you're looking for a new solid state drive, you're not going to find a lot of them that are much smaller than this one from SiliconSystems.

The SiliconDrive USB Blade is roughly the size of a postage stamp and is boasted to be “environmentally-rugged.” I'm really not sure how something of this size can be considered rugged, but I'll take their word for it.

Samsung Super-WriteMaster SHS203 – The fastest burner in the world

I've been a bit disappointed in the lack of drives that utilize the SATA ports. Sure, there are plenty of hard disks, but what about optical drives? Sure, you could argue that most wouldn't take advantage of the increased bandwidth of SATA, and you'd probably be right. However, if you're looking for a DVD burner that can blow away the competition and you're looking to free yourself from ATA forever, check out what Samsung has to offer.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! It kind of sucks that it falls on a Wednesday this year, which means that most of the fun parties and such have already happened. That's alright though, because Halloween is still one of my favorite holidays.

I'd have to say that it's just a notch above April Fool's Day. See, on the first of April you get to pull pranks and get away with it by uttering those two little words. April fools. However, on Halloween you have free reign to scare the bejesus out of anyone you choose.
