It's been undeniably heartwarming to see the outpouring of love and remembrance for Steve Jobs who passed early this week, and today (or last night, rather), one of his biggest fans and greatest allies added to that pile of appreciation with a short segment. In this segment you'll see Colbert show the excellent experience he had with Apple and their intelligent offering of free product to him over the years as well as a personal email Jobs sent to him the night after he showed off his iPad 2, the first iPad 2 owned by a non-Apple-employee, mind you, at the Grammys.

I walked into Saw 3D with only one expectation. Having skipped the last few Saw movies, I figured that I would understand what was going on without knowing the plot. After all, the first Saw movie had arguably little plot, and the next one I watched had even less. So, I figured that by the time they reached the penultimate Saw, the film would probably have been reduced to simple bloody vignettes. The so-called traps. Unfortunately for me, I was even wrong on this count. The writers of Saw 3D actually took it upon themselves to craft a plot and wrap up any loose ends. This is the idiocy of Saw 3D in a nutshell. It's a movie that has no idea how terrible it really is.

Well everyone wanted a budget system and they finally got it. The 40GB PS3 will be dropping on October 10th in Europe for a price of 399 Euros which is $595 US.
That seems like a lot here, but all of the PS3 models have considerable price hikes in Europe, if this system were to come to the US it would probably be the $399 system everyone has been talking about. Want to know what the catch is? Only 2 USB ports instead of four, that’s the only difference other than the HDD size. No not really, but you have to read on for the really good stuff.
