Transformers 2: I can has explosion?!?

I don’t know if it was just me, but one of the things I noticed is that the robots in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen had learned a few new words. It’s almost as if they forgot swearwords in the first movie, and felt that they had to make up for it in the […]

Enter the Mist

These days there is something we come to expect from Stephen King novels when they come to the screen. I have to admit that I’ve never read one of his books; I’m not a big book reader at all. Horror and / or scariness is done very well. Besides public speaking, the unknown is something […]

Windows 7 Screenshot Tour

Just 2-3 weeks until Microsoft’s servers will have their bandwidth capacities tested for the second time as they release their official release candidate build of Windows 7. It’s been a few months now with round about 1 million people (probably loads more) are running pre-release versions of Win7, and much has been said for and […]

Fast & Furious – Mexico Thrift

The latest of the quick and angry has taken a step back from Tokyo and all it’s schoolgirl glory, and put us back into the embrace of burly Diesel. The main plot revolves around Vin’s character Dom going for revenge for his girl’s murder and that white guy cop going after the same dude ’cause […]

Red Shirt Rampage

Right around the time when the Thais usually party for 3 to 4 days while drenching each other in the water festival of Songkran, the UDD (United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship) caused a great ruckus in Bangkok and other regions of Thailand. It should be noted that generally these red-shirts, as they are commonly […]

Windows 7 Build 7077 is RC?

Everyday we get a little bit closer to the release candidate for Microsoft’s Windows 7. This will be the last release before the official market release, but beta-testers (free-loaders?) will get to use this pre-market release even after the market release has come out. Perhaps you are one of those, and perhaps you are already […]

North Korea Flexes, World Flinches

As I’m typing this, reports are coming in that North Korea’s rocket is being fueled up for a launch some time between the fourth and eighth of April. Kim Jong Il is claiming it’s simply a commercial satellite so they can finally get some HBO in their backwater country, but the rest of the world […]

Windows 7 Release Candidate in May

Word on the street has it that the release candidate for Windows 7 will be up for download to the public near the end of May. This is a month later than some of us expected in April. The release candidate will be the closest thing to the final version, fixing most or all of […]

Easily Changing Windows 7’s Login Screen

Rumors have been going around and I’ve done my research. As of build 7057 (I’ve already upgraded before testing this), you can easily change the background of the log-in screen. Many people have commented that the current background is quite ugly, and if you’re one to agree, then in these 2 easy steps we’ll fix […]

WMD: Weapon of Mosquito Destruction

Imagine it crawling through the desert wasteland. The wheels crush beneath it the remnants of human skeletons which turn to dust under the weight of this killing machine. Fully automated, armed with high intensity heat lasers, it slowly rumbles on. Suddenly the senors pick up a new target. The gun-turret turns and the lasers blast […]
