Welcome to the world of Minecraft: Hunger Games
Lately I have noticed several YouTube channels dedicated to MINECRAFT game play. But these are no ordinary build and mine game play vids. These are survival style, grab what you can, run, evade and fight to be the last person standing. There are several websites and servers devoted to this new trend in playing this 3d block cube game. I have played several times and its great. You get the adrenaline rush and fun of C.O.D. without the pretend military know it all 15 year olds who talk crap and pull various forms of annoying douchery.

It’s Here ……
All that Nerdy Stuff finally received its console for backing the OUYA Project on Kickstarter.com. We have long anticipated the OUYA arrival since March 28th 2013 when OUYA announced shipping had begun with early backers receiving the first units.

Microsoft’s Controversial Windows 8 OS Is Gaining Ground–Fast
Windows 8, whether you love it or hate it, is a success. After recently announcing that the dramatically redesigned OS has already sold more than 100 million copies, Microsoft has gone something on the offensive in various blog posts, defending their design choices and their ongoing work to adapt the OS to consumer needs. But now there’s something new to crow about, and the only surprise is that there hasn’t yet been a press release: the Windows 8 App Store is now home to more than 70,000 apps. You read that right, folks: in 7 months of market availability, Windows 8 has 5 times as many apps in its marketplace as Apple’s OSX has, and it launched over 2 years ago. Head on past the break for the full details.
Lumia 928 Elevates Verizon’s Windows Phone 8 Offerings
It’s been a long time coming, but Nokia is finally bringing a high end smartphone to Verizon. That’s right, folks: the much-rumored, often hoped-for Nokia Lumia 928 is official and it’s coming to Verizon in just a few days. On May 16th the doors open and, for just $99, Verizon customers will be able to get their hands on Nokia’s latest.
The big question is, of course, what makes this thing so special, and why do we care about what might be just a mild revamp of a 6 month old AT&T phone, the Lumia 920? Head on past the jump for the straight skinny and find out!
Iron Man 3 Shows The Dark Knight How To Rise Better
I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone decided they could do a better job of telling a superhero story about the consequences of hubris or just plain bad decisions than Christopher Nolan did with his much-maligned final chapter of the Dark Knight saga, but I have to admit that I never imagined it would happen in the form of an Iron Man sequel written and directed by Shane Black. Nevertheless, here we are, and because I hate leaving people waiting until the last 30 seconds of the broadcast for an actual verdict, let’s just lay it out right here: not only is Iron Man 3 the best of the Iron Man movies, but it’s probably one of the best realized superhero movies to date. And yes, it’s better than The Dark Knight Rises. I’ll tell you all the reasons why after the break–and don’t worry, I’ll keep it spoiler-free.
Spaceship Two: First Commercial Space Penetration Will Be By a Virgin. Ironic?
Of course I had to be in a class when Virgin Galactic finally cranked up the engine on their long-awaited Spaceship Two. I’ll comfort myself with the fact that after having waited this many years to get to see something like this happening, an extra couple of hours won’t make much difference. Suffice to say, I’m stoked, but what do you think? Check out the video below and share your thoughts after the break!
Chase Mobile – Quick Deposit, Voice Commands, and More!
I’ve always been rather impressed with how Chase tends to keep pace with technology. When QuickDeposit first came out for iOS, we eagerly set a signed check on the dining room table and snapped away, with mixed results. So, when the Chase Mobile for Windows 8 app came out, I was optimistic, but not expecting much. Boy, was I surprised at how much better it’s gotten!
Thor: The Dark World Trailer Released by Marvel This Morning!
We’ve been following the development of the Marvel Universe avidly. This fall, Thor stars in another movie with Thor: The Dark World.
The trailer teases at some of the plot points we were hoping for: Thor’s relationship with Jane, more interaction between Earth and Asgard, and, of course, epic battle scenes. Post production on the film was finished last week, so we’re looking forward to more upcoming teases and trailers before the November release!
