Microsoft labels dirty cheaters as such on XBL

No one likes a cheater. Unfortunately in the world of online game, cheaters seem to run rampant.

Xbox 360 power bricks are only covered by 90 day warranty

Google vying for ‘White Space’ to broaden wireless broadband coverage

Google has reportedly written a letter to the FCC asking for permission to use the space between channels 2 and 51 on TV sets, which aren’t used by cable services, to offer up wireless broadband services.

Another innocent RIAA victim is taking his case for legal fees to the Supreme Court

The RIAA is easily the most anti-American organization still in existence right where they are constantly nailing innocent people and the courts generally find in their favor when it comes to awarding legal fees to victorious defendants. Well, that time may be coming to a quick and concise end.

How many lawsuits do you think the RIAA would be filing if they knew they not only had to pay their own legal fees, but the legal fees of the accused if the accused was found not guilty, or more likely, if the RIAA dismissed the case. The RIAA has gotten quite tricky with its guerilla legal tactics often times just dismissing the case when no clear positive end is in sight for them.

NVIDIA Quad SLI not as good as anticipated

I know that when the first iteration of Quad SLI came out, it was the hot thing. Every boutique PC manufacturer was clamoring for the ability to offer it, and the few that got it sold those things like hotcakes, these days however, things aren’t going so well on the Quad SLI front.
