Could you guys review this HDMI cable.

I'm curious if it really makes that much difference when viewing hd content.  The reviews on it are very positive.

General Mayhem / [Frontpage News]Will Microsoft`s Tablets be too late?

Today the guys over at Techi.com are asking the question "Will Microsoft's Tablets be too late to hit the market"? As the tablet market has exploded over the past couple years thanks to the success of the Apple iPad its not too surprising that everyone is scrambling to cash in on this new market. Microsoft has held off on releasing anything due to them wanting to have Windows 8 on their tablet which will provide a better user experience but the completion of Windows 8 could st. . .

I think if they do it right it's not going to be too late. Technology is fickle and there are a lot of users that would happily switch os's with their next tablet upgrade.

I've been trying, but no success so far. Most of my friends don't want to haul their rig way down south.

Wow, is it that time of year again?  I'm there, not so sure about Epi though.  Maybe he's scared of defending his title against BoneRak and Echo. Might have room for one more in the van on the way down if anyone needs a ride.

LifeHacker tells the world why we should all embrace the new Modern Facebook Messaging System  and after reading about it.  I tend to agree a bit.  I'm glad it's opt-in at this point and I recommend you head on over and find out what makes it amazing.  I'm going to try and find how easy it will be to opt-out once I opt-in.  Mark has a wa. . .

Umm so now you are going to give more of your personal and private data to a company that has a terrible track record of security, selling all your data to 3rd parties, changing ownership rights/privacy repeatedly, and has admitted that it has a very low opinion of your intelligence. No thanks.

LAN & General Gaming / [Frontpage News]Free Alien Swarm Game

If you're looking for a new game to play but don't have a lot any money right now, check out Alien Swam being given away through the Steam network.  It's a top-down, four player co-op game that actually looks pretty interesting.  It won't even cost you a cent - unless you're over your bandwidth cap for the month.

I've played this mod for UT2K4 and the arcade version on the xbox 360.  It is one of the funnest coop experiences ever.  Unless of course you are Bonerak.

General Mayhem / [Frontpage News]Is Digg.com Dead?

2010 has not been a good year for Digg.com. In the past couple months they've seen traffic drop by 13.8 million unique visits which is a 36% drop in traffic. With the surge of Facebook and Twitter is Digg.com just another internet casualty? Website Magazine takes a closer look at Digg.com and the current pickle they are in.

   According to the l. . .

Digg is becoming the new Fark.com.  Starts out good but like a lot of user based content on the internet it just devolves to become a soft porn site.  It's too bad really since I don't do facebook or twitter.

General Mayhem / Re: [Frontpage News]Quit Facebook?
« on: May 21, 2010, 06:51:26 am »
I'm already done with facebook.  Deleted my account a few weeks ago. Mostly due to privacy/copyright issues but also just the way that it is growing out of control.  People sped hours a day on the stupid thing.

If you hate the analog wallet like your dad, there may be a better choice coming down the pipe.  The iWallet  can be configured to keep your stuff safe by biometrics, bluetooth and more.  If you're all about hi-tech the iWallet may be for you.  I'd take one - or two and give one as a


I'd love to see the iwallet meet an ihammer and then we'll see how secure it is.

General Mayhem / [Frontpage News]JooJoo`s Refunds Smell Awfully Fishy

After more and more delays, many people are starting to demand refunds and cancel their pre-orders for the infamous JooJoo tablet.  I don't blame them, but it appears that there may be a run-around happening that may prevent you from getting your money back right away.  It almost sounds like a Nigerian scam.  Don't believe me?  Check out Gizmodo's email log  - and the. . .

Not as fishy as it seems. Having to deal with customers like this toad, I actually sympathize with Fusion Garage on this one.

Epi and I are practicing up for the UT3 tourny,  are we doing 2v2?  TAM? 

I put in my vote for TF2 as an alternate game.  I'm not very good at it but I think it's pretty fun.

Sure wish I could be there.  I'm scheduled in for some work that day and I've bought too much stuff I have to pay for.

General Mayhem / [Frontpage News]Zune HD Set For Failure

As much as I love the Zune brand and the features of the Zune Marketplace, I have to agree with Wired when they say that Microsoft has set up the Zune HD for failure.  Most (open minded, eg. not Apple Fanboys) are pretty excited about the Apps features of the Zune HD, but it appears that Microsoft has selected a few third-party developers for this feature and it won't be open for outside developer. . .

That is a HUGE mistake.  Even worse than apple I might add.  There is no way I would buy that device without open 3rd party developer support.

I think the article was saying why Linux should be your "Netbook" OS, not "next" OS.  Good article none the less.
