Users of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game consoles can now brag about their achievements on Facebook as both systems integrate the social network this week.
Microsoft Corp. switched on a slew of new features for its Xbox Live online service, allowing owners of the Xbox 360 consoles to update Facebook and Twitter directly from their consoles.
The Xbox 360 can also stream music from the Internet radio service Last.fm.
According to numerous sources on the Internet, in 2012 a planet called Nibiru will collide with Earth, resulting in the extinction of the human race. Or the Earth's magnetic poles will flip, causing the rotation of the planet to reverse, resulting in the extinction of the human race. Or the Earth will fall into something called a "dark rift" in the Milky Way — resulting in the extinction of the human race.
So, what's NASA doing about it?
Well, today, www.RodneyReynolds.com is officially one month old and already there are almost 400 forum members. While I expected this site would go over well, I had reservations about even starting it. One of the reasons was that it might pull away hits and/or members from 3dGameMan.com (my Tech site) which doesn't seem to be the case thus far. Also, for the fact that this site requires extra work and time is something I don't have a lot of these days. My main reason for stating his site was to answering people questions, question that I normally receive in my inbox.
Of all the sinister things that Internet viruses do, this might be the worst: They can make you an unsuspecting collector of child pornography. Heinous pictures and videos can be deposited on computers by viruses — the malicious programs better known for swiping your credit card numbers. In this twist, it's your reputation that's stolen.
Pedophiles can exploit virus-infected PCs to remotely store and view their stash without fear they'll get caught. Pranksters or someone trying to frame you can tap viruses to make it appear that you surf illegal Web sites.
IS GEORGE W. BUSH stupid? It's a question that occupied a good many minds of all political persuasions during his turbulent eight-year presidency. The strict answer is no. Bush's IQ score is estimated to be above 120, which suggests an intelligence in the top 10 per cent of the population. But this, surely, does not tell the whole story. Even those sympathetic to the former president have acknowledged that as a thinker and decision-maker he is not all there. Even his loyal speechwriter David Frum called him glib, incurious and "as a result ill-informed".
Just when you thought your clocks were keeping the accurate time, here comes another semi-annual round of throwing all of them off schedule.
That time-altering event, the return to Standard Time for most of the United States, puts clocks out of kilter -- or, some would say, back into kilter -- as of 2 a.m. Sunday, the first Sunday of November.
So maintain harmony with other clock-watchers, you should turn your clock back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.
Everyone's pinching pennies in these tight times — so now might be a good time to double-check your credit card bill for any unexpected charges.
You might find you're paying for something known as "credit balance insurance." Depending on your credit card, it could be called "BalanceProtector" or "Account Protector," but the idea is the same: for a fee, credit balance insurance promises to cover your monthly minimum credit card payments in case of loss of income to due job loss or extreme illness.
