Just some clean up before I get to work...
Action needed now on Xbox pirates - Umm... yeah, so let's mess with consumers just like the music industry.
"The impact on Xbox will be significant. VUG is currently exploring methods used by the music industry to prevent or disrupt casual 'piracy'."
Cause everyone just loooooves the music industry right now. This will not stop piracy, going after casual pirates should be done through education, not restricting them. I could definitely rant a little more here...
Report: Orbach may leave 'Law & Order' - Oh crap... He's pretty much my favorite character...
Samsung HT-DB390 Bluetooth Surround Sound Speaker - This is pretty sweet. I like the idea, though I already have a nice Harmon Kardon receiver so I probably wouldn't shell out extra money. But I'd love to see it be able to receive signals over Bluetooth too. I would love to just turn on iTunes and listen to music without connecting any wires between my Powerbook and the receiver.

How many gamers?
(repost to put in correct thread)
One thing I don't like about the Xbox article is that they say "60% of hardcore gamers". That seems an attempt to sensationalize the number. They don't give a percentage of _total_ gamers, and it's not clear what qualifies as hardcore.
That aside, I think there should be something done to stop piracy if it can be done without affecting everyone else. Easier said than done, though, as I'm sure they had this problem in mind before the first Xbox was even sold.
