PSN update: Sony isn't sure your credit card data is safe

"Satoshi Fukuoka, a spokesman for Sony Computer Entertainment in Tokyo, spoke with PCWorld and claimed the company "has not yet determined if the personal information or credit card numbers of users have been compromised, but that Sony would promptly inform users if it found that was the case." Since you can't play your games online, why not use that extra time to double-check your credit and debit card records?"

Happy Earth Day

So you almost forgot about Earth Day? If you didn't, good for you, but I suspect though that most of us probably did. It really should be made one of the most important days of the year.

Smell like an elf: RPG perfumes

"Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is selling a line of RPG-inspired perfumes intended to invoke the mythical races of elves, dwarves, half-elves, hobbits and orcs, as well as the distinctive aromas of clerics, fighters, mages, paladins and such. I totally guessed that paladins smelled like vanilla and "evil" smelled of "Smouldering opium tar, tobacco absolute, green tea, black plum, kush, ambergris accord, ambrette seed, and costus root.""

YouTube Comments Suck

So you like leaving stupid, off topic, bashful, hurtful, idiotic, crazy comments on YouTube. Well, shame on you! "Only drunk people, underage fags, bored preteens, and stupid frats with no life linger around here to look for videos to laugh at." ~Spoken by a perfectly sane human (soma150 of YouTube).

Why Does the US Cling To Imperial Measurements?

"As one of only three countries on Earth that hasn't converted to a metric system of units and measurements, there is a huge amount of resistance within the US to change the status quo. Whilst the cost of switching would be huge, there is also a massive hidden cost in not switching when dealing with the rest of the world (except for Liberia & Burma, the only other two countries that don't use the metric system) With one of the largest organisations in the US, the military, using metric units extensively, why does the general public in the US still cling to their customary system of units?"

Zuckerburg interviewing President Obama

Well, who would have thought! Zuckerburg interviewing President Obama. While Obama seems to be a nice person, I believe the US needs a stronger leader. Someone who can get the USA out of the many issues facing the country. Let's hope Trump runs for office ;)

Free shipping on 3dGameMan T-Shirts (Easter special)

The Easter spirit is in the air and everyone deserves at least one Easter egg. Some Easter eggs are better than others though. Like for example, no shipping on the 3dGameMan t-shirts to anywhere on the planet. This madness is over when Rodney the rabbit leaves on May 1, 2011. All hail the rabbit ;

Misc. Gadgets Paul Allen compares working with Bill Gates to 'being in hell' (video)

"Paul Allen doesn't give many interviews, but Microsoft's famously eclectic co-founder recently decided to sit down with 60 Minutes' Lesley Stahl, to discuss his juicy new memoir, The Idea Man. It's a book peppered with old stories of Allen's early days as a programmer, when he and Bill Gates would spend their days searching for discarded code in dumpsters and building software for the original Altair computer.

Wendy's New "Natural" Fries Caught Using Chemical Stew

"But a BNET blogger has poked a hole in Wendy's claims of the fries being "natural". According to the report, the fries use a stew of exotic laboratory chemicals to improve the fries' appearance, flavor, and ease of cooking. The fries do away with the steam skinning -- ironically, one of the most "natural" parts of the average fast food company's fry manufacturing process. Chopped, the fries begin their chemical journey with a dip in sodium acid pyrophosphate. They're also powdered with slightly more natural D-glucose (crystallized from corn).

LED Illuminated Teeth: Only in Japan

"The latest thing in Japanese orthodontistry involves putting LEDs into braces. Actually, no, but hip young Japanese kids can have their teeth outfitted with LEDs to light up their smiles like a Christmas tree."
