Notes on How the Vita Fucks Importers Over
Physical titles are the best if you care about having trophies on the same PSN account as you use in your actual region. However, in the case where a game you own a physical copy of will not be released in your region, you have to choose between trophies on your main account or Online Pass/DLC on a PSN account for a region in which that game is released. If you’re going to go the Online...
In February 2012, an experimental implementation of btrfsck was made available...– BTRFS on Wikipedia.
Here are a few frustrating things about the new PlayStation Vita: The thing everyone is saying, but it needs repeating: The initial setup assistant asks you if you want to use PlayStation Network. If you say yes, you cannot log in because of a pending firmware update… which you can’t get until after you’ve completed the initial setup assistant. The OS might as well check for...
People accusing Apple of setting Safari’s default preferences to disable third-party cookies as a means of interfering with Google’s business are full of shit. The preference was decided on prior to there being any hard feelings whatsoever between Apple and Google. There a ton of crazy bullshit conspiracy theories floating out there about how Safari’s settings are an attack on...

Apple can shove dialog boxes in your face about allowing access to your address book all they want, it still would not resolve the most damning thing about the Path incident. When users tap on a feature that is clearly labeled as being a friend finder that uses your contacts, then if a dialog pops up asking to allow the app to access their contacts, they will say yes. The problem with Path...

“It’s worth noting that this change is unlikely to apply across the board. Vevo, for example, is apparently going to be able to keep its videos off iOS, and other large producers will probably have sufficient clout to strike their own deals as well.” One more “fuck the music industry”.
Microsoft's Task Manager Fetish
Microsoft showed off Windows 8 at Build last year. Their keynote presentation was pretty awkward, but the pinnacle of awkwardness was when they demoed the new Task Manager. A few weeks ago, Microsoft put up a blog post about how Windows 8 has better support for mobile broadband (WWAN) cards and dongles. They also showed off a screenshot of two new columns in the Task Manager which shows off the...
Insomnia: Arcade Culture →
A really long read about why arcade games are awesome. I have more or less stopped paying any attention to games that aren’t in the arcade or home versions of arcade games. It just kills me that arcades are dead out here. (Insomnia is my new favourite gaming website. Yeah, I’m years late to the party, but luckily, most of the commentary on there is still valid. The only downside is...
