Rare and Expensive Video Games

There are quite a few video games made in the past 20 years that weren't that popular and some that were wildly popular. It's interesting that some of these games - popular or not at the time - are now worth a bunch of money. One of the most expensive video games is "Birthday Mania" for the Atari 2600.

With only one verified copy in existence, "Birthday Mania" is one of the rarest games of all time. "Birthday Mania" allows players to play mini games consisting of popping balloons and blowing out candles. It also comes in a box that allows you to personalize it with a birthday message or name.

Android Wear is Better Than You Think

Android Wear and other Smart Watches have been called "Slave Jewelry" by some and I can see their point. That being said, Mike Elgan thinks a little differently. According to him, Android Wear is the turning point that is way better than you think it is when viewing it from an outside souce. He compares it to Windows Tablet's from 5 years ago to an Apple iPad. It's a lot better experience that you may first think. That being said, I do want a timepiece that lasts - and I agree with Jason Schneider who says that you'll get 16-18 months tops out of one of these devices.

The voice feature deserves special attention here. I’ve found it to be noticeably faster and more accurate than the same feature on my Moto X phone. There are other differences. On Android Wear, the result comes in a condensed summary form in writing on the watch screen. On the Moto X, it’s typically a larger result, but with the summary spoken out loud.

Samsung Calls iPhone Users 'Wallhuggers'

While this commercial is kind of funny, the reality is a little bit distorted in my experience. While the interchangeable battery on a Galaxy device is nice, often the iPhone will outlast an Android phone with moderate usage. Still, it's pretty funny and if you've ever traveled, you'll know exactly what they mean.
