Just going to say this to the world in general. +Food Network and +Nickelodeon need to create +Roku apps, pronto.  And CBS needs to put more than just clips on theirs.  While I'm at it, Verizon needs an app too or unencrypt more channels to Clear QAM.  I shouldn't have to rent a box for every TV anymore.  Just saying.

You know Verizon, it's nice that you've added more channels to the Xbox... but if you made a Roku app I'd be more likely to up my channel package.  Just saying you're missing a golden opportunity.  All I'm asking is you put your content on the device I want to use.  I know you can do it!
The company also revealed that it has opted to no longer require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to stream content with the FiOS TV app via the consoles.

This looks lovely.
This NES 30th anniversary edition is to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of NES on July 15, 1983. For those born in the 1970s and 1980s, NES is not only a game console that can bring joy, but also a symbol of home video games. This NES 30th anniversary edition GamePad is to bring back our happy memory of old days.

To the person or persons who designed Deadeye Dunwell as a challenge in the Queen's Gauntlet... I don't like you.  I haven't cursed this much in months. You deserve a severe wet noodle whipping.

And on a side note the camera works for crap in the gauntlet arena.  Can't see a bloody thing.

Ever see a news story and think "oh there's that idea I had years ago but with no resources to make it a reality."  That's what this invention seems to be.  I had the same idea while melting at Scarborough Faire on a hot Texas afternoon.  Figured you could build it into a wrist gauntlet or something.  Perfect for those steampunk fans.

Hope they make it a reality, because I'd like one.

Well the world just increased its stupid quotient for the day.  I'm baffled, especially by who voted for and against it.  I guess our only hope for a fix to our copyright woes is Congress... HA HA HA... I can't finish that sentence.  I'm laughing too hard!!!

This really sucks as I was really enjoying Aereo.
 
SCOTUS rules Aereo violates copyright law

+The Verge : The US Supreme Court ruled Wednesday on Aereo’s dispute with TV broadcasters, ruling the streaming service violates copyright law.
The Supreme Court struck a dramatic blow against Aereo today in a ruling that puts the TV streaming service as it currently exists on its deathbed. In a 6–3 ruling, the court found that Aereo's...

I agree that we need the henchies back... and better dungeons to use them in.
