MacGruber set loaded to the boobies with hotties (AOL TV)

Jan 29th 2010 8:42AM He writes that sketch on the show as well.

BBC to bring the Internet to TV (AOL TV)

Dec 21st 2009 11:24AM New idea? They're have been several failed attempts at this. WebTV anyone?

Is Canadian Doctor Who house bigger on the inside? (AOL TV)

Nov 19th 2009 11:08PM Hilarious. Especially funny for me as I used to live in the same city and we referred to our house as the Tardis as it was way bigger on the inside then the outside appeared.

Great price on this one. To bad the towns been falling apart for a few years :\

Would you watch TV on iTunes for $30 a month? (AOL TV)

Nov 3rd 2009 2:21PM Anyone with bandwith caps is sure going to get a big surprise with a subscription to this service.

I have a few other questions people aren't asking:
(1) Does this include access to a full back library of a shows? If so that would sure hurt DVD sales I would think (which has been the saving grace of the DVD/TV industry)

(2) Do I have to maintain an annual subscription? If not, what is to stop me from subscribing for one month (taking a month of work lol) and watching the full seasons of all my shows.

Big Brother 11: Eviction #6, HoH #7, Nominations #7 (AOL TV)

Aug 19th 2009 3:47PM As a psychologist I suspect I could base an entire career on the housemates this season.

Microsoft warns court of Word-related armageddon (Download Squad)

Aug 19th 2009 3:23PM Funny post. But this would be disruptive. I work in a field with lots of word collaborative work. We recently moved everyone to the xml standard and going back would be a pain (as may getting new copies of word with xml if we do not want to go back).

Re: Todd. If you really think changing anything on a production line costs $0.00 (even to a free product) you've obviously never worked in this business. Lets not forget these companies also deal to primarily business clients who require certain software specs.

I tried a year of Open Office in a Word world and it was a nightmare. And my wife threatened to divorce me then secretly installed M$ Office when I was on vacation lol

Google makes 500,000 free eBooks available for Sony Reader (Download Squad)

Mar 19th 2009 4:26PM Still a good deal though as they used to charge a fee for a lot of these classic books. Maybe I'll be more well read now as a result of this :)

Amazon agrees to cripple Kindle 2 (Download Squad)

Mar 1st 2009 8:38PM Good grief. Do they really think the awful speech engine in this will hinder audio books that much? So if this is a violation of copyright what about Kurzweil which is as close to real human as you get from a text-2-speech program that is used by thousands upon thousands of students with reading disabilities?

'Til Death gets revived for another season (AOL TV)

Jan 14th 2009 8:31PM A definitely weaker season so far (though I love me some chicken and waffles :) .. but I love it just the same. I'm glad it's coming back.

Sony email: PS3 a great value, Xbox "a burden on the wallet" (Joystiq Xbox)

Jan 9th 2009 2:23PM I'm an owner of all 3 systems and have to admit the PS3 is a tighter package. Each certainly has it's pluses but I'm not pleased about all the extra $$ I had to drum out for my 360.

* With my PS3 I much prefer not paying for online gaming (though historically the XBOX's online gaming was much better this is starting to fade away as the PS3 much improves in this area.

* The machine is a LOT quieter

* In the HD/BluRay days it was much nicer not having the extra clutter from the HD drive

* The wireless is a pain in the arse on 360. I went with a cheaper solution for my 360 (Pelican) and it's a pain to reconfigure if you make any wifi changes.

* I like that the store is $$'s and not stupid points

* I prefer being able to go with a wide range of blutooth headsets other than brutally expensive secondary options for 360 (unless I want something equally as crappy as the 360 factory set)

For the 360:

* Graphics are better on multi system titles

* The online gaming is more highly populated (unfortunately a lot of tweens come with it though)

* System links better with my home servers

* The achievement system is still better than Sony's trophies (and every game has them)

All and all both systems have their plus/minues. *I* think my PS3 is a better value but to each their own.

As for my Wii... at least I can play with my wife and parents lol
