As we all know, the manly month of Movember – or No-Shave-November – is drawing to a close. If you entered our contest, or even if you didn’t, send in an end of the month picture by December 3rd. After that, I will choose the finest specimens of manliness in one of our two main […]

Remember Folding@Home? Get back to it!

Posted November 29, 2011 @ 1:00 pm CST by Chris Ness

Now that winter is upon us, we need to heat our homes again. What better way than to max out the CPU on every computer you own? As our favorite DJ reminded us recently, we have the power to help science (and we freakin’ love science!) for free, with only about 5 minutes of our […]

Happy Thanksgiving. I mean, that’s what it would have said if Kevlar had posted this on time. Sorry.  Show notes after the jump, as usual.

Sony must be trying to kill the PS VITA

Posted November 29, 2011 @ 10:30 am CST by Alberto Lima

When Sony unveiled the official PSP predecessor, the PS Vita, we became fairly excited to see the next iteration of mobile gaming. The Vita was every bit the portable powerhouse that we longed for (especially after the less than stellar original PSP and it’s tinier more useless counterpart the PSP Go) and included the unicorn […]

Audiogalaxy review

Posted November 29, 2011 @ 9:00 am CST by Ben Avecilla

You know what’s great (supposedly)? Music in the cloud. With Google Music and iTunes Match both launching within the last few days, it really seems like everyone wants you to stream your music over the air. And really, it’s not such a bad idea as you’re no longer limited to whatever local storage is on […]

Pet Zombies for Nintendo 3DS

Posted November 25, 2011 @ 9:49 am CST by Michael Pitts

Pet Zombies is a new game from Majesco entertainment that takes the cutesy little pet games like Nintendogs and replaces the cute little puppies with disgusting undead creatures. Intrigued? You should be. It’s a good bit of fun, and you won’t feel completely emasculated playing this the way you would if your friends caught you putting little ribbons in your cocker spaniel’s fur.

Happy 48th Anniversary, Doctor Who!

Posted November 23, 2011 @ 10:48 am CST by Ben Avecilla

On November 23, 1963, the BBC broadcast the very first episode of Doctor Who. And unless your TARDIS is broken, you’ll realize that was exactly 48 years ago. Although it was put on a 16 year hiatus from 1989 to 2005, it is still considered the officially “longest running science fiction TV series” by the […]

39 Dollar Glasses Review by Jake Gross

Posted November 22, 2011 @ 3:30 pm CST by Noisecast

A few months ago, the Noisecast published my review of Zenni Optical, an online eyeglasses retailer.  My overall impression of the site was positive.  I got pretty high quality glasses at a fraction of what I’m used to paying for similarly spec’d specs.  I decided that it would be a good idea to review one […]
