There isn’t just one paid online console gaming service, anymore. There are two. Xbox Live and the newly revealed PlayStation Plus are going head-to-head. But, how are the two services different?
This is what we know so far:
An annual “Gold” membership for Xbox Live is $49.99. The “Silver” membership is totally free, however. The upcoming PSN Plus is also priced at $49.99 for a year and $17.99 for three months. The regular PSN service is free of charge. Sony is planning on offering an initial three month trial membership, free of charge.
The GM (Gold Master) release of iOS 4 for iPhone 3GS, 3G and iPod touch 3G, 2G has made its way on the popular file sharing and torrent sites. Unlike all the previous Betas, this release actually doesn’t require registered UDID, and you can restore it on a Windows machine too but it will be pointless as for activation, you will still need iTunes 9.2 Beta which is currently only available for registered developers on Macs.
This GM release carries build number 8A293, and can be downloaded from your favorite content hubs.

Stuart Hughes, a UK based company specialized in luxury gadgets has come up with a iPad Supreme Gold Edition made of solid Gold and Diamonds
This top iPad model encrusted with 53 flawless diamonds on the Apple logo, rear and surround case made of solid 22ct gold, weighing an immense 2,100 grams has a price tag of £129,995 (~$189,000).
The ipad is the Wi-Fi & 3G , 64GB version. There are 10 units available for this heavy paperweight.
Once in a while, while intoxicated, you might end up taking a couple hundred dollars out of the ATM that you really shouldn’t have. It’s not great, but it’s also not the end of the world. But if that ATM could dispense solid gold? Well, that opens the door for much more destructive mistakes.
In (where else?) Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace, this ATM offers up gold coins up to 10 grams in size with customized deisgns whenever you want. It monitors the daily price of gold and adjusts its rates accordingly, so you know you’re paying the proper price. And really, this is [...]
We’ve all experienced it. One minute you’re surfing along quite happily, an MP3 playing in the background, and then suddenly – bang! Disaster strikes.
Maybe your hard disk has failed; perhaps a virus has found its way round your defences and brought Windows to its knees; or it could be that your PSU has given up the ghost.
Whatever the reason, the net result is the same – suddenly you’re staring straight at the long and painful process of reinstalling Windows and attempting to rescue some of your precious data.
But there’s no need to live in fear any longer. As we [...]
I’ve never understood why anyone would buy ultra expensive blinged-up tech gear. Even if the tacky style floats your own personal boat, what happens to all those diamonds and that gold when the undelying tech becomes obsolete after a couple of years? Anyone want to buy a 2 1/2 year old $9000 gold plated MacBook ?
That’s why I can’t figure out who in their right mind would spend $1.5 to $2.25 million a diamond encrusted Stuart Hughes TV. I mean the freaking thing is already obsolete, following last week’s introduction of 3D HDTV sets by Samsung and Panasonic.
Still, if [...]
British scientists say they’ve achieved a breakthrough, figuring out how to extract hydrogen from water with an unheard-of 60% efficiency using solar energy. The secret sauce is nanotechnology, in the form of nanoclusters of indium phosphide encrusted on a gold electrode. Using this, they can turn sunlight into that hotshot hydrogen fuel, clean-burning and as energetic as a swift kick in the ass.
Next trick: turning water into wine.
What’s the catch? Well, gold happens to be exorbitantly expensive, and becoming more so as markets become less stable. So these guys are looking for a [...]
If Michael Jackson were alive, he would no doubt be attending this month’s ‘International Luxury Fair’ in fair Verona, where a golden coffin featuring a golden cell phone can be snapped up for a mere $381,000 dollars (£255,000 / 280,000 euros).
The a cell-phone-equipped golden coffin is only one of many hilariously expensive items on display at the international luxury fair.
Eager billionaire shoppers could pick up a diamond-studded, cancan-style wedding gown in pink chinchilla fur for 220,000 euros, a boat running on a Ferrari engine or crystal-covered piano [...]
Now the immortal rich can fantasize about precisely how they plan to conquer death. All they need is this “golden” coffin, and once they’re resurrected from the dead, a quick phone call sets everything right again. There are scant few details about this casket, but if it’s actually made of solid gold, that sucker’s going to be awfully heavy. Perhaps it’s gold plated like Michael Jackson’s $25,000 coffin.
Let’s just hope there’s good cellphone service available in the graveyards of the rich and stupid. How rich? A mere $381,000 gets you a spot [...]
