Every once in a while we like to do these little social experiments and blog about it. A heated argument over never eating meat and eating a "normal" diet including meats in moderation...and you get the challenge of me (sworn lover of a nice rare, slightly singed cut of angus) going vegetarian for a week. What brought this on, you ask? I was browsing one of my favorite corners of the web..... [ read more ]

In between by StarCraft 2 rounds of RTS fun, I decided to try to finish up Ace Combat 5 on PS2. Old school flying fun. If you've played this game, then you know that one of the hardest levels to score the coveted "S" grade on is mission 18b otherwise known as "8492nd" where you get a ton of enemy fighters throwing missiles at you every turn you take. Fly reckless, slow down: instant..... [ read more ]

Everyday I lose a little more trust for our elected government officials. I don't need to tell anyone that these are economically tough times. Government workers, the bees that do the work, and everyday people are losing their jobs. Sometimes they're just struggling to keep themselves and their families going. Yet, somehow, whenever you watch the news, you get images of our elected..... [ read more ]

I'm going to add to the rampant speculation for an iPhone 4 hardware fix to the antenna. It's not just me though. Apple's news that iPhone 4 White shipments have been delayed (again) along with a hard stop to the rubber bumper and case give-away program on September 30th, has led most spectators to guess that a hardware fix is in the works. Why else would the give-away end? What about the..... [ read more ]

Is it just me? Over the last two weeks, I've spotted a huge number of CHP and local police officers in police cars using their cell phones. I mean really. At first, I kinda did a double take when I saw one female officer next to me at a stop light using her cell phone (in California, we have a headset law, and there was no headset). No big deal I though, police officers are human..... [ read more ]

Here's the thing. I wrote that iRenew post a few days ago on a freakin' lark. Mostly just to vent my lack of progress in getting one. It seems though, we've gotten so many hits on that one little not even investigative post that I'm actually getting one soon to test. Yup. Surprised the heck out of me when during our weekly editorial review meeting that my request got approved. I can't..... [ read more ]

It's been a while since I picked up Ace Combat 5 on PS2. A long, long while. So long, that I completely and utterly suck at it. It took me a few go rounds of getting blasted out of the sky and I was going through missiles like salt water taffy. Who doesn't love salt water taffy? Not only is the campaign mode (the regular game mode) fun, but there's..... [ read more ]

(Pictured: KFC Double Down from our recent review) People love to eat. It's not just Americans. We took a family trip to China recently and we just so happened to be in China on a national holiday. I'm not sure what holiday it was, but a lot of things were closed. Banks, offices, things like that. All the restaurants though were open and tons of people were out eating. My Chinese goes as.....
