Holy mother of god. This is the monitor of all monitors. This is the monitor king. 2880×900 resolution. Sign me up when it comes out, all I'll have to do is move into a bigger room that can actually fit it.
Today Google announced the release of 29 translating robots that you can just add to your friends list in Google Talk. Then you can talk to them, getting instant translation in return. You can also enter a group chat and use the bots as translators between other people and yourself.
The only downside is that the Google Talk client doesn't seem to support group chats just yet, so you have to use the Gmail in-page one.
I think it's a brilliant idea if you ever deal with foreign languages. How many times have I forgotten a word while translating a paper or trying to talk to my mom back in Ukraine? A quick IM to the en2ru Google bot and …

The next Terminator is coming. Who's excited?
Here's the plot: After the drastic effects of Terminator 3, the story continues as John Connor and soon to be wife Kate Brewster realize they must create a resistance organization with Earth's remaining survivors against the army of robots slowly being built up by Skynet. As they are building this resistance, one survivor happens to be a traitor in disguise, and has a secret that nobody would ever come to suspect.
The good news is that the movie is now in pre-production, the script is done, and shooting should begin in 2008. Terminator 4 will come out in June 2009 if everything goes as planned.
The bad news is that Arnold will not …

The saddest part of growing up for me is probably the realization that games don't entertain me nowadays as much as they used to. OK, maybe not the saddest, but it's up there along with having to "work", not being able to "get trashed like there's no tomorrow", and behaving like "an adult".
But where was I? Oh yeah. Even though graphics and realism improve every year, my desire to play anything goes down at the same rate. Valve seemed to know this quite well, so it promised to do everything in its power to satisfy me.
Enter the long awaited Portal. Combine the Halflife 2 engine with the power of a portal gun and brain busting riddles, add …
Nissan is showing their new concept vehicle at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The fact that the car looks like a bat mobile, as jalopnik.com correctly noticed doesn't entice me very much. However, the seat design immediately caught my attention. It's a… 3-seater? And the driver is in the middle? That's f$%#ing cool. Judge for yourself:
The DailyMail reports on some crazy ocean foaming in Sydney. What exactly are they talking about? Perhaps the pictures will explain better (or not).
Albertson's is no more. Now it's back to Lucky. And this is what $4.99 buys you at Lucky. Life is good (although I believe that this is the sole reason for food shortage in Africa).

Here are some pictures and videos from the magnificent Tiesto's Elements Of Life concert that rocked San Francisco yesterday, July 28, 2007.
Feel free to follow this linky for more pictures.
Videos by shotokun16, myself, and others from the party:
Click this sample map and then try dragging the blue path around to create via points. You can also do the same to the start and end points. Now I feel that the Google maps are truly 21st century. Live traffic (maybe live traffic cams soon?), street view, multiple destination, dragging and zooming with the mouse… can this thing get any better?
This announcement is also currently one of the top diggs…
The day is finally here. Blizzard just officially announced Starcraft 2 at an official Korean event! As someone put it on digg, if you didn't know that you can simultaneously cream and shit your pants, you will now. Here are the first videos that surfaced on the web.
The actual gameplay demo narrated by Blizzard. IMO, this is the best and the most well put together demo I've ever seen:
And some more gameplay videos:
A TON more trailers here: GameTrailers SC 2 Page…

Edit: Aww crap, it turned out to be a fake. Here it is anyway, just for kicks.
Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez 23 and Enrico Garza 26, probably believed they would easily overpower a home alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two story home.
It seems the two crooks never learned two things, they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.
Resindez was the first to get up to the second
