Microsoft and Facebook Sittin’ in a Tree

Microsoft and Facebook Sittin’ in a Tree

Trying to make Bing not suuuuucky. This thing that Microsoft does, is probably the most annoying product I’ve come across on the internet lately. Not only does it really mess with some articles I’m reading with it’s annoying pop ups, but It just…I don’t know I just can’t stand it. Now that they are jumping […]

Facebook Lunch Gaming: Castle Age

Facebook Lunch Gaming: Castle Age

When I got some time on my lunch break, I decide to just try random games while I’m doing other things. Mostly looking for something to do while things are loading on websites. Yeah, I’m a multitasking type. This week I’ve been giving Castle Age a shot.

 

Alan Spencer’s “This Business We Call Business…”

Alan Spencer’s “This Business We Call Business…”

Mr. Alan Spencer, famed creator of Sledge Hammer, has recently posted a poignant little blog.  I found it on his facebook page.  He has given me permission to post it here.  Enjoy. “I just finished having breakfast with an old school executive, a former mogul that in his mind still lives in the days of yore. I […]

 

Help! My Mom’s on Facebook!

I think it’s rather funny that today the Shogun posts Def Leppard as the MCoM since the band in this video is trying really hard to be them. Anyways, funny video on how Facebook changed once it opened up to more than just college students. This is basically how I felt as soon as I […]

Plants vs Zombies on the iPhone…finally!

Plants vs Zombies on the iPhone…finally!

Pirates Beware, avoid Facebook on DSi

Pirates Beware, avoid Facebook on DSi

All of you DSi adopters out there…make sure you take care when downloading the Facebook Connect application. If you’re a scurvy pirate, it might just render your DS flashcart completely useless. This affects people using iPlayer, AK2I, and EZVi so far. Besides, don’t you have better hardware to be doing the facebooks on anyway?

God Damnit Japan

God Damnit Japan

The completely un-necessary re-re-release of the popular DS hardware that features not one, but two underpowered cameras and no GBA slot has sold over 3 MILLION units since November according to Famitsu. That’s 3,000,000 giddy school children and up-skirt perverts that now are taking pictures of you while you pick your nose on the train. […]
