Introduction
I'm an electronics enthusiast who is lucky enough to make a living as a senior editor for PCWorld. I was a longtime freelancer before that, with my work appearing in Maximum PC, Laptop Magazine, Wired, Gizmodo, FoxNews.com, MSNBC.com and many, many others.

When I'm not writing, I'm usually either reading, listening to music of all types, or neglecting my family by playing waaaaaaaay too much Wasteland 2.
Bragging rights
Biggest beard this side of ZZ Top (and that homeless guy down the street).

ExxonMobil's days are officially numbered. 
We've all shaken a fitness tracker or two in our lives to beat the system. But now, Pornhub is making a wearable meant for just that—shaking. And beating. It's called the Wankband, and it lets you charge your gadgets by jacking off. It was only a matter of time.

This thing is INSANE
Italian sport fishermen Dino Ferrari and his twin brother Dario lured in this monstrous 280-pound (127-kilogram) and 8.75-foot-long (2.67 m) catfish on Thursday in the Po Delta, in Italy. After taking this pictures and weighting what the Italian media calls "The Monster of the Po" they released it back into the river.

Vin Diesel likes D&D which automatically makes him a cool dude but I think I'd be scared to play with him

Admit it, all of us have used the "mouse pointer test" to see if the progress bar has actually moved or not!

We settle the debate with SCIENCE 
Now that Europa Universalis has a Custom Nation designer, the most important questions can be solved definitively.

Linux gaming: Not just for oddball obscurities and WINE anymore, thanks to Valve and the promise of SteamOS.
 
Linux gaming has utterly EXPLODED over the past year or so. Here's a rundown of 25 big-name games and indie gems that now call Linux home ahead of next week's big reveal of new Linux-based Steam Machines. 
It's taken a long time and the promise of SteamOS, but more and more big-name games are finally becoming Linux natives. Here's a sampling.

Also thanks to the Unity guys for adding Linux porting for game devs :)

Killer article by Ars here. 
After 14 months in beta, where does Valve's new platform push stand?

Don't forget that Id Software released Quake III Arena for Linux as well. It was possible because they opted for OpenGL rather than DirectX.

There's a good market for Linux games, but you'd never know it because most Linux users dual boot to play games (now, they just have to hope the game has a Linux version on Steam).

Good article.

Yet another WANT. This nifty, gorgeous Lian Li case can be wallmounted or slapped in a stand. The Mod Zoo has a thorough review chock full of pictures. 
Let’s say that one day you woke up and thought “Hey, I need to hang my computer on the wall”. You immediately run into a problem: No one offers a computer case that you can hang on the wall. That is, until now. The Lian-Li PC-O5s is a wall mountable, stand mounted, or desktop format case...

Absolutely tremendous food, but loooong wait times. It's totally worth the patience, but you may want to place a take out order if you have young kids in tow. Prices are reasonable for the quantity and quality, too - $10 to $20 for entrees, $8 to $10 for sandwiches, including half-pound burgers. Get the Buffalo tenders!
