It's pretty crazy the things geeks can come up with when they get an idea. A group of undergraduate students over at Texas A&M have obviously been playing too much Guitar Hero, and decided that they could make a robot to conquer the game for them. After much thought they have named their dubious creation Slashbot.

The modchip offered by Team Xecuter has graced my original Xbox for years. The main reason that I modded my Xbox in the first place was so that I could stream television shows and listen to my MP3's, which is something the original Xbox didn't do out-of-the-box.
We all resize images quite frequently, but more times than not the result is not what we want. Either the image doesn’t scale correctly, or we are forced to crop off content that we would otherwise want to have. A solution for this problem might be just around the corner.
Like many of you, I use bookmarklets on a daily basis to complete tasks a bit faster. Many of them offer features that normally require Firefox extensions to do, and I am one of those people that try to minimize the number of extensions I use.
The latest nightly build of Firefox 3 has a nice new feature that the eye-candy lovers out there will like. In Firefox when you open too many tabs they overflow and scrollers on each end of the Tab Bar appear. That way you can navigate between all of your tabs without having them shrink down to the size of a pea.
I don’t think there is any doubt that CCleaner is among my favorite applications, and it looks like it is going to stay that way. Thanks to this tiny program I, along with several of our forum members, have been able to clear up gigabytes of files that are no longer needed...thereby reclaiming valuable hard drive space.
I received a few emails the other day when I posted about Compiz Fusion in the Full Circle Magazine. People were wondering whether I had successfully setup Compiz Fusion in Ubuntu, and what I had done to do it. Unfortunately the only computer that I have Ubuntu installed on right now has an integrated graphics card, and I haven’t been brave enough to see if Compiz Fusion works on it.
Come August 8th the Xbox 360 might be seeing a $50 price cut! Both Hollywood Reporter and Xbox Scene are reporting the news, although Xbox Scene wasn’t given the details on the amount of the price drop.
There is no doubt that the Wii causes enough damage as it is from arms being whipped through the air as excitement builds in a game. Heck, there is even a site, Wii Have A Problem, that is dedicated to sharing everyone's stories on how they got injured or what objects they have broken. All of this commotion comes from one little video game system that has motion sensitive controllers.
What a Christmas present this was! Vista Transformation Pack 6 was just released yesterday with all kinds of new goodies including 3rd-party applications for providing features like Taskbar thumbnail previews and a remarkable sidebar just like Vista's.
Vista Transformation Pack 4.0 was just released and it does a great job of giving your XP machine the Vista look. In December last year Windows Blinds released a new version of their software that was designed to provide Windows XP with transparent effects, however, it wasn't free. That is where the Vista Transformation Pack comes into play.
