  1. Yay!! Saving it for breakfast tomorrow…, no freak outs about Google Glass from hillbilly land?

  2. Someone really needs to tell them that you don’t need to check in on Steam every two weeks.

    Everyone seems to have a different time frame for that. As far as I know there is no official declaration of ANY such time limit and I do not know a single person who’s ever hit such a limit.

  3. Someone really needs to tell them that you don’t need to check in on Steam every two weeks.

    The copy of Steam I have on my laptop has been in offline mode for almost two years and it’s not forced me to go online again. I have to wonder if there is any sort of time limit depending on what version you have installed when you go offline, or if it’s just people who try to play a game they never activated and then think that they can’t play anything without signing in.

  4. FYI, Sony already lets users unregister PS3s, PSPs and Vitas at will, or even wipe registered devices remotely via the Sony Entertainment Network website in cases where you no longer have access to the hardware. I doubt PS4 will be very different.

    Also, Sony began experimenting with preloading PS3 Digital Day 1 titles and midnight unlocks last year in Europe.

  5. That PS4 Eye camera seems like the perfect thing to duct tape to an Oculus Rift to try and figure out a fix for the inability to see your keyboard. At least it would be if it was straight USB.

  6. Having a number of friends who work at ms, I can safely say there is a serious reality distortion field there. I don’t bother talking tech with them anymore, because any criticism is always answered with “you’re doing it wrong”

  7. Thank god. I’ve been waiting for a new one from you guys. We listen in our restaurant in the morning…

  8. Krystal is NOT a sad place, Wes. Krystal is really good, it’s not fine cuisine but it’s not anything like the shit that comes across a Taco Bell counter. At least they don’t kill people like Jack in Box does. I moved to San Diego and the third day I lived there three people died at a JitB, and a month later four more people died at another location. Krystal is amazing you’re missing out, dude.

  9. Crash Bandicoot Nuts and Bolts? Might’ve gotten the streams crossed on that one.

    This. MURDER , MURDER! Poor Banjo & Kazooie 🙁

  10. windows key + x = best shortcut in windows 8….

    questions about 8.1 on desktop:

    How does 8.1 improve the crappy perfomance using 2+ monitors.
