These days, video game consoles aren't just for video games anymore. There's a CD, DVD and Blu-Ray player, internet, Twitter, Facebook, chat and more. But don't you wish you could watch MOVIES? Oh, wait, you can. Think the way you watch movies on your console is good enough? One company challenges consumers to think again. [ATTACH=left]16608[/ATTACH]FlicStick Corp announced today that they will be releasing their patent pending "FlicStick Movie System." For me, that name means slapping obnoxious people with a ruler when they talk during my movie. For you, that could mean a new way to watch your favorite flicks. …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]16747[/ATTACH]Sony’s impenetrable fortress, a.k.a, the PlayStation 3, has been compromised. OzModChips.com just announced their version of a “jailbreak” for the PS3. What they claim to have is a plug-and-play modchip in the form of a USB stick. When plugged into the PS3, it allows an impressive amount of access into the system, most important of all, the ability to backup your retail PS3 discs onto a USB hard-drive, and subsequently, play the backups without the retail disc in the system.

[ATTACH=LEFT]17229[/ATTACH]In my recently reviewed [I][URL="http://www.daniweb.com/reviews/review307026.html"]Shank[/URL][/I], I talked about how the title was a throwback to a genre neglected in the modern gameosphere. The once lively and marketable side-scrolling beat-em-up seemed to have died with 8-bit/16-bit consoles and the arcades, left to only shame itself with pitiful modern iterations of [I]Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles[/I] games, which produce a knee-jerk reaction like when the New Kids on the Block came back to tour. Two years in the making, [I]Castle Crashers[/I] finally arrives on the PSN. Following the games release on Xbox Live, it went on to win accolades far and wide for …

File under strange but true: an IBM developed supercomputer based on the same processor technology that powers the Sony PlayStation 3 has just been officially ratified as the fastest computer on the planet. According to the [URL="http://www.top500.org/"]Top 500 supercomputing rankings[/URL], published today at the International Supercomputing Conference in Dresden, Germany, the IBM RoadRunner scoops the top spot. Not only that, but with a benchmarking of 1.026 petaflops it clocks in at more than twice the speed of the previous number one which has held the title since 2004. A petaflop, in case you need reminding, is one thousand trillion calculations …

The PlayStation 3 is, without doubt, a multi-talented piece of kit: state of the art games console, Blu-Ray player, media centre and more. Much more, in fact, because from the 1st June you will be able to add Linux Enterprise Server to the functionality list. That is the date from which you will be able to download an installer from [URL="http://www.jpy.com/"]www.jpy.com[/URL] which will bring HELIOS’ optimized Yellow Dog Linux v5.0, utilizing the IBM 64-bit 3.2 GHz Cell processor in the PS3, and in turn will run HELIO UB, the enterprise client server. Certainly as far as I am aware, this …
