Second update News

Could this be the idea behind The Last Election 14?

Where are we in the search for The Last Election 14? Hidden codes, cyphers, messages to prepare, what little there has been posted has been food for the conspiracy crowd, all understandable considering the recent revelations regarding the US Governments’ need to spy on, well, everyone, even former Presidents of the US of A. But, […]

Update: The Last Election ’14 – “You hold the key”, new info

Well, twenty-four hours later and the site has not changed on any level I can see at the viral website www.thelastelection14.com . Just a few quick notes: 1) The Russian on the tab reads “Вы удерживайте клавишу” which, according to Google translate, is “You hold the key”. Not the first time I have seen that […]

GIFs, the looping moving images that are all the rage at the moment, aren’t just for silly cat memes. At least not anymore. Last year, Flixel made a big splash by getting a big placement on TV’s America’s Next Top Model and they haven’t looked back since. Flixel has managed to change the way fashion photographers […]

BABYMETAL Reviews

BABYMETAL, J-Pop meets Metal….uummm, it is really, REALLY good

First of all, ignore the band’s name. BABYMETAL was created by a Japanese talent agency, so it is best to think of it as a collection of symbols designed so that English speaking individuals can identify and remember who is being referred to.(1) There is a huge stigma attached to manufactured bands in the Western […]

Noisestash: Three apps that help organize my life

Posted July 5, 2013 @ 3:55 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Over the last few months I’ve found myself completely overwhelmed by the rigors of managing two websites, freelance work, and carving out personal time to deal with the important things. Up until recently I scoffed at the idea of using to-do lists and apps for keeping it all together – possibly out of some misguide […]

Let’s talk XBOne and PS4 – no one got it right

Posted June 11, 2013 @ 3:33 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Last night I was elated after hearing Sony announce not just the price of the new Playstation 4 (a paltry $399) but their steadfast commitment to consumers – the PS4 was going to support used games! As I’m likely to do after most great evenings, this morning I awoke a little bleary-eyed, tired, dehydrated, and […]

Xbox One, Licensing vs. Ownership, and Voting With Your Wallet

Posted June 7, 2013 @ 2:35 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Today’s news about the forthcoming Xbox One’s reported limitations on their “license” and how it’ll affect consumers is a bit troubling. The short version of this is that Microsoft has created a system that can potentially kill the trade-and-resell market for video games but has deferred the actual pulling of the proverbial trigger to publishers.
