Survey: What do you think of the iPad? photo
Survey: What do you think of the iPad?
by Niero Gonzalez

The iPad2 was released two days ago and is not without critical acclaim. Some have even gone as far as calling it the Holy Grail of computing.

Praise comes easy: It's thinner than an iPhone4 (WTF!), lighter than its predecessor, loads and runs games twice as fast, has two cameras, and is priced the same as its debut model. Prior to the new iPad, the device was doing just fine. There is no ongoing shortage of high quality free iPad games and many of its premium games like Infinity Blade have won numerous awards and sold more than many console releases. NUMBEROUS, EVEN!

In terms of investment it seems to hold its resale value well: even generation one iPads are selling for only a hundred dollars less than retail on eBay. That said, the device is not cheap and not for everyone. Hell, I'm personally allergic to iPhones.

If you own an iPad (either model), how do you like it? If you don't own an iPad, do you plan on buying one? Why not?

PAX 10: The lost photo gallery photo
PAX 10: The lost photo gallery
by Niero Gonzalez

If you've ever packed into a sweaty hotel with all of your nerdy friends at PAX you've probably come to know one fact of life: you're going to lose something.  Virginity aside, one guy will end up with your laptop charger, another guy's girlfriend will have all of your left socks, and everything small and important-looking was conveniently thrown away by your housekeeper (thanks Consuelo!).  Such is the story of this photo gallery, which was floating around on lost SD card until now.  We were going to let is pass, but what's more timeless than a collection of scantily clad dorks?  It's the weekend. Enjoy.

Netflix PS3 streaming discs to become garbage by October

In the grand scheme of things, having to use a disc to stream Netflix-flavored movie magic to your PlayStation 3 is, well, about as high on the list as needing to point your TV remote in every conceivable direction before the...

Monday Mind Teasers: Starmageddon

After last week's Blosics 2 physics box bonanza I was in the mood for a dark and deep puzzle adventure game this week, but Gateway ended up being way too short, and its sequel is barely more than a buggy remake. So this ...

Star Trek Online doesn't need WoW players to succeed

World of Warcraft may be the biggest MMO around, but you don't have to take it on to succeed. Cryptic, the folks behind Star Trek Online, certainly feel that way. Said Executive Producer Craig Zinkievich: "We think we've m...

Ever wonder how much videogame castles are worth? Uh, seriously? Why?

Confession time: I watch entirely too many house flipping and home buying TV shows. Some of you might argue that watching anything more than an accidental 10 seconds from channel surfing is probably entirely too much, and I c...
