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.

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.

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,

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:
