This game is a ton of fun. It's still under development and has a few quirks, but the concept is something I've wanted to see for a long time.. I even had delusions of writing something similar.

The game is like a lot of other hacking simulators I've played, but this one actually puts you up against other player in real-time. Hack in to their virtual device and upload malware to make yourself money or steal from their virtual bank account to upgrade your device.. Make sure to cover your tracks by editing the logs and watch that you don't fall victim to someone else's hacking.

One of the coolest concepts is that you can upgrade your software from other higher player's devices.. It's saved me so much in-game cash!

There are in-app purchases in the form of "overclocks" that you can purchase and earn by leveling up that speed up running processes. Upgrading your network speed and device also speeds up processes so overclocks are optional.
Become the ultimate hacker under your alias in this virtual hacking game. H...

From skipping around a gameplay video, I can't comment on the music (maybe he had it off) but I can say Rez is more abstract, and less FPS.  It's a floaty person/thing with a chase cam.  Also- no person on person violence.  System Shock actually reminded me more of Bioshock.  (Again- this is coming from watching about 2 minutes of a five hour long video, lol)

Cool!
The newest trend in American communication isn't another smartphone from Apple or Google but one of the elder statesmen of communication: Ham radio licenses are at an all time high, with over 700,000 ...

Letter home from basic training.

Dear Ma and Pa,

I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled. I was restless at first because you get to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. But I am getting so I like to sleep late.

Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing. Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water.

Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food, plus yours, holds you until noon when you get fed again.
It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much. We go on 'route marches,' which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A 'route march' is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and Colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none.

This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why... The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable like and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.

Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training.
You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home.
I'm about the best they got in this here place except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake . I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5' 6' and 130 pounds and he's 6'8' and near 300 pounds dry.
Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.

Your loving daughter,
Alice

Stop this crazy ride, I wanna get off.
Netflix is spinning off its DVD business and will call it Qwikster. The new DVD-by-mail company in addition to DVDs, will also start renting video games as well, in the process competing with the like...

The Power of Words

I know I posted a lot of videos today, but PLEASE watch and possibly share this one.

If you watch through to the end, you'll understand why.

Bold move by Netflix: they're renaming the movie-by-mail service to Qwikster, and retaining the Netflix brand for their streaming service.

Here's Reed Hastings' blog post on the moves:

I agree. The best comment I saw was "You are not a DVD company or a streaming company, you are a company I go to watch movies. If you make it more expensive and more complicated, I'll go find somewhere else to get my movies from."

Another comment said a company is not who they think they are, it's who their customers think they are. If they were going to go down this path, they should have managed that perception first and then made the change.

By working, I mean sitting in my Dad's chair and working on my laptop. :)

One guy asked for the name of "my" doctor because I was younger, thinner, and had less gray hair after "my" surgery. lol
