Modern Robots Have All the Pathos of the Best Ancient Greek Drama . . .

. . . all crammed into a total running time...

EVE online hit by biggest takedown ever

Breaking: Goonfleet stomps Band of Brothers in biggest EVE takedown ever

Nutshell version: The Something Awful Goonfleet destroyed their only rivals in the game, Band of Brothers by bribing a head man in the BoB corporation into secretly dissolving the corporation and transferring all the assets to the Goonfleet.

This brings up the question: is it possible for the Goons to actually destroy EVE online from within?

In the most balls-out act of deep space espionage in the 21st century, GoonSwarm, EVE Online’s in-game Something Awful forum contingent, has finally defeated their arch enemies, absolute rulers of the game universe, Band of Brothers. Thus ends a years-long David and Goliath dance that has made modern gaming history on multiple occasions. As this is a breaking story as of today’s wee hours, I’ll spare you my verbal flatulence and put my better-informed friend Bjorn Townsend on blast:

Literally, Band of Brothers is no more. They got a spy into the executor corp at director level, kicked out every corp, stole all the assets they could lay their hands on, and altered standings so that everyone will start shooting everyone else. And then they closed the alliance, and created a new corporation called Band of Brothers with the same corp ticker, so they can't even have the old alliance name back.

Proof that Microsoft Songsmith doesn't work, using David Lee Roth

David Lee Roth is Running With The Songsmith

As you may have seen in our earlier post, MS Songsmith in an application will create music lines based upon how you sing. To test it some geniuses on the internet took the vocal tracks from Van Halen's "Jump" and The Police's "Roxanne." Hilarity ensues.

Off-Road Velociraptor Safari

We're used to suspending a little bit of belief when it comes to the games we play. Off-Road Velociraptor Safari, however, really tests the limits. You play a raptor driving a jeep with a spiky ball and chain attached to the rear. Your goal is to chase down other raptors and throw them into a teleporter that sends them to the future. At this point it's a good idea to throw intellectual understanding out the window, because this game is all about hitting dinosaurs with cars for points.

Zunes Everywhere Froze At 2am This Morning

Microsoft: Zunes Everywhere Froze At 2am This Morning

If you're Steve Jobs, you probably dream of stories like this: Zunes all over the world froze up at around 2am this morning and won't reboot, and nobody knows why.

ArsTechnica says it seems to have affected all owners of the 30 gig model, and hit no matter what you were doing at the moment

Last distributor gives up on VHS

Long, winding road hits a dead end at last for VHS -- chicagotribune.com
Pop culture is hitting the eject button on the VHS tape, the once ubiquitous home video format that will finish this month as a creaky ghost of Christmas past. After three decades of steady if unspectacular service, the spinning wheels of the home entertainment stalwart are slowing to a halt at retail outlets. On a crisp Friday morning in October, the final truckload of VHS tapes rolled out of a Palm Harbor, Fla., warehouse run by Ryan Kugler, the last major supplier of the tapes. "It's dead, this is it, this is the last Christmas, without a doubt," said Kugler, 34, a Southern California businessman. "I was the last one buying VHS and the last one selling it, and I'm done. Anything left in warehouse we'll just give away or throw away."
