As much as I love Steve Jobs and the distortion field he emits from Cupertino, I have got to hand it to his fellow Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, for keeping himself relevant with the current trends in technology.
For a man who done so much in the technology industry both in revolutionizing the personal computer with the Apple I and II as well as his work in video games and the creation of the universal remote control, you would think he leads the life of a comfortable philanthropist, just hanging out on the beach and relaxing.

It seems like for most Mac users the best choice for listening and downloading music starts and ends at the all-in-one iTunes player. It’s no surprise when you think about how simple the interface and interaction with your music is done within the program. I wouldn’t hazard to assume that most Mac users never bother to try out other alternative music players like their fellow Windows and Linux users who just so happen to get to enjoy Winamp, Media Monkey, Rhythmbox and Amarok.
However, I find that I’m not your regular Mac user and that I find myself trying out alternatives just for the sake of trying them out. It is this curiousity that led me to download Songbird back when it was first released in early 2006 and what has led me to try out another open source music player, Clementine. (more…)
It was only a short, few months ago that Namco Bandai released a few pieces of artwork for their next “mothership” Tales game to celebrate the franchise’s 15th anniversary (which coincidentally is today!) and they even launched a site counting down the days to the next Tales game.
Well, the clock finally hit ZERO and we now know that this new Tales game is Tales of Xillia and it will be the first PS3-exclusive Tales game thanks to the minute and a half long promo that was posted with the game’s reveal. (more…)
So for all 5 of you that actually read my blog you’ll have noticed that I haven’t really updated this blog in a little over a month. In between work, trying to improve my skill set and finding time to relax and do stuff, I haven’t had much time to devote to this blog.
I am hoping to play copycat to my good friend from my days at York University, Enrico, who dedicated an entire month to writing on his blog discussing all sorts of topics, and write on this blog for the next 31 days until January 14th, 2011. By then I am hoping to finally complete my critique of Valkyria Chronicles 2, something which I have been postponing for months now.
To usher in this new era of writing on this blog I have also decided to incorporate a rating scheme for reviews that I will write. Seeing as how I am a big fan of Valkyria Chronicles, I’ve adopted a ranking system from 1 to 5 (1 – being awful, 5 – being awesome) in which each rating will be represented by Alicia Melchiott from Valkyria Chronicles 1!

When I first heard of Tron, I won’t lie and say it was because I had watched it growing up. No, I found out about Tron several months ago thanks in so small part to the upcoming sequel to the original Tron in Tron: Legacy. I feel like I have committed a sin as a science fiction fan who hadn’t watch Tron, until only recently, yet had watched parts of the original Star Trek, all the Star Trek movies, Star Wars, the Dune movie and loads of other science fiction movies and television shows.
What particularly piqued my interest in Tron was the musicians that were composing for the film, Daft Punk.
