Blizzard Cleans House by Letting Go of 600 Employees

"Blizzard sent over a press release announcing that approximately 600 employees will be let go on a global scale. The company determined this was necessary after conducting a review of its business based on current organizational needs. Approximately 90-percent of the affected employees will come from departments not related to game development."

TekSavvy Pricing Increase

I'm actually using TekSavvy for my internet service provider and overall they're great. A reliable service with decent speed, plenty of bandwidth at an affordable price. However, it seems they are jumping on the Rogers/Bell money train and giving way to the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications - Canada's regulator for telecoms, radio and television services) mandate. Rogers (AKA Robbers) and Bell (AKA Hell) both have plans that make them rich and customers poor due to the User Based Billing (UBB).

The Steve Jobs Era Is Officially Over

No, this is no joke he's actually no longer with us!

"We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts." ~ Apple’s Board of Directors

Happy System Administrator Appreciation Day

"It's the last Friday in July. Have you hugged your system administrators today? Bought a cake? Picked up the tab for lunch? There's still time to show your thanks for the unsung heroes who keep corporate desktops, servers and networks running. Today is System Administrator Appreciation Day, an annual event thought up by IT pro Ted Kekatos.

Happy Geek Pride Day

Geek Pride Day is an initiative to promote geek culture, celebrated on 25 May. The date was chosen as to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars film on 25 May 1977, but shares the same day as three other similar fan 'holidays' - Towel Day, for fans of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy by Douglas Adams, one possible date of Star Wars Day, and the Glorious 25 May, for fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

Internet bandwidth cap is pure evil

So you're paying a fortune for your Internet access and it's fast, but it's capped. I'm with Rogers (Robbers) here in Canada and I'm paying for their fastest service, but it's capped at 175GB? Make sense? NO. Why would their fastest premium service have a low bandwidth cap of only 175GB. The same reason all over their services have a cap, to GOUGE their customers and make massive profits. Well, I'm dropping Roger and going to try TekSavvy. What's your feeling on this?

At the moment most future 3dGameMan YouTube videos will be unlisted. If you wish to view 3dGameMan videos in the future, please visit the http://www.3dGameMan... website.

Fans of 3dGameMan already do this, but my hope is YouTubers will as well.

Please be aware that I'll be posting YouTube bulletins when a new video/video review is posted. So you YouTuber's won't be left in the dark, so to speak. But you'll still need to visit the 3dGameMan.com site to view the video/video review. So this will keep everyone in the loop.

3dGameMan Site Tutorial

I've been meaning to do this video tutorial of the 3dGameMan.com site for a while. Note that the site will still be tweaked from time to time. So unless there are major changes this site tutorial should give you a better overview of the site.
