Comcast Pay-Per-Package

Comcast testing pay-per-package, still afraid of a-la-carte I went over a lot of my feelings about this in detail in an earlier post so I won’t (completely) go over them again, however I did want to note that it is official: Comcast is testing out pay-per-packages, Charleston, South Carolina being the first test market.

Groan (Kinect Martial Arts)

Ubisoft takes Kinect to Self Defense Training Camp Oh, no.  They had to do it, didn’t they?  I guess it only makes sense.  You can ‘learn’ yoga and basic Tai Chi, as well as various exercise routines using the Kinect.  I suppose someone had to ask the question, “Why not martial arts?  People like to […]

Top Gear‘s (the real Top Gear, not the pretend American version) Jeremy Clarkson narrates a Forza 4 promotion video:  I was going to embed the video, but it kept failing to load the video. Now, if I have to be honest, while I don’t think my time was really wasted watching this promotional video, […]
