Random Tidbits #2

Edge Magazine - It’s sad that the only good gaming magazine left on the planet is published in the UK.  It seems with the currency exchange rate, it’s actually cheaper for me to buy a year’s worth of issues at Borders than it is to subscribe and have it delivered via mail.  Regardless, worth the $8 every month in my opinion.  Reminds me of the old Next Generation mag, which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise since they were affiliated back in the day.

PS3 - I’ll echo everyone else’s sentiments:  $599?  Suck it.  I’d like to think they won’t sell many and it will fail, but that probably won’t happen.

Wii - I personally can’t wait to try it out.  I fear the novelty will wear off quickly, but I’m a sucker for a crazy controller, as my closet filled with Guitar Heroes, Guitar Freaks, Samba De Amigo, and a host of other controllers proves.

Windows Vista 5381 - Even better than the last.  But please, fix the User Access Control (UAC) stuff.  Sure, I can turn it off.  But for those that won’t know how or want the feature enabled, being smacked in the fact with a dialog box on every 3rd double-click is a bit excessive.

Dell Latitude D820 - I bought a Latitude D820 to replace my D610.  Quite speedy, though I’m not totally used to the wide-screen display yet.  Feels much sturdier than some of my previous Dell laptops, though.  No complaints so far…

That’s all for now.
