  • In yet another sign Bill O’Reilly is losing his mind, he somehow manages to say that gaming will be the end of the United States in an epic attempt at reasoning that only Bill O’Reilly can accomplish. C’mon, O’Reilly — are things really as bad as you claim?
  • The PS3 launch was utterly ridiculous on so many fronts, ranging from Sony shipping ~200,000 for the U.S. only to the violence at launch time. Amazing what people go through and how much they spend on eBay for such a terrible piece of hardware. Sony has botched this one, bigtime.
  • Rep. Charlie Rangel wants the draft to come back. Amazing how the folks in power — i.e. biggest proponents of the war — cower up when they think of the possibility of their sons and daughters going to war involuntarily…honestly, the reaction isn’t really surprising.
