Sony announces assault on Xbox Live

January 31, 2006 at 08:35 PM

Sony is set to announce in the Official Playstation Magazine that they'll be introducing a centralized online system with the PS3. I don't know if they'll match Xbox Live feature for feature and then some, but it's fantastic news that they're going to try. The Playstation 3 needs a unified online system and it sounds like it'll be getting one. The better each system, the more competition, the more pressure on Microsoft and Sony... Continue reading

iPod nano flaw

January 30, 2006 at 10:50 PM

I just tried using my new iPod nano at the gym today and displayed this issue. It gets stuck on the rating screen and even when you try to navigate to the other screens the stars stay on there. Really annoying. Looks like it may be a new error with the latest update, hopefully it's remedied by another update soon because it definitely hampers the use of the player.... Continue reading

Undelete shows from your TiVO

January 26, 2006 at 08:04 AM

I never thought about it, but it makes sense. When you delete a show off of your TiVo it doesn't actually immediately remove it from the hard drive, it just removes it from your list of shows and will record over that space when necessary. Because of this, TiVo will soon add the ability to retrieve recently deleted shows. Want to get a show back you deleted yesterday? Scroll down to the Recently Deleted... Continue reading

Logitech Harmony Universal Remote for Xbox 360 Review

January 22, 2006 at 03:28 PM

Sounds like the Logitech Harmony Advanced Universal Remote for Xbox 360 is a winner. When (if?) I ever get my Xbox 360 I'll have a tough decision on whether to pick this up or not. The universal remote that came with my Kenwood A/V receiver is pretty good but a few of the buttons are starting to not work everytime you press them. The Harmony does everything you can imagine and seems easy to... Continue reading

purevolume

January 15, 2006 at 08:21 PM

purevolume is a great music community site from the guys at Unborn Media (with several guys from Neubix.) Seems like there's a lot of good bands I've never heard of and most have streamable and even downloadable mp3's songs available. You can even search for upcoming shows in your area. Will definitely be checking back to see if there are any good new bands in the charts.... Continue reading

Vince Young to enter NFL draft

January 08, 2006 at 08:05 AM

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Vince Young has scheduled a press conference for 3pm today and will announce he is headed for the NFL. Young will reportedly sign with Steve McNair's agent Bus Cook. Obviously disappointing news for Longhorn fans but probably the best decision for Vince. His stock is about as high as anyone's could get right now and he's probably got a chance for some endorsements coming off his legendary Rose... Continue reading

Awesome, Grande Cable is f***ing piece of crap

January 04, 2006 at 06:45 PM

Apparently they decided today was a good day to screw up and drop ESPN and instead show Fox Sports on 2 dif channels at once. This is the same POS company that in 2006 does not offer digital cable or HD original promised date of availability for HD: 9/2004. Pathetic. I'm sure glad i get my HD via OTA antenna and won't be relying on these morons.... Continue reading
