XBox One, thoughts.



To Summarize:

DRM Will be determined by the publisher.
It is controlled by face and voice recognition, and can read you heartbeat. Skynet help us.
It will allow you to skype, and watch movies or play games at the same time.
Xbox Live players are matched through game, film, television, and music choice.
A partnership with EA Games will yield four new titles exclusive to Xbox:FIFA 14, NBA Live, UFC and Madden.
 Halo is now a television series in its own right, streamed to premium subscribers on Xbox One.

You need to install every game to play and pay a fee for installing it  on a different account. 

The max blu-ray disc size at the moment is 60GB, but on average it's  50GB for games. 50GB a game  on a 500GB HDD.

In Conclusion:
Microsoft has created an Xbox with Windows Eight. Good Job. So long, and thanks for all the fish.


Hello Sony. With my pending purchase of a Mac (either Pro or Air, haven't decided yet), and my computer I am going using being formatted and linuxed, My life is going to be Windows free. Interesting.

My Adventures with Caviar


Well I was in Wal-Mart the other day and saw caviar on the shelves. I bought it just because I found it odd
that caviar was at Walmart.  Keep in mind this is lump caviar, not the very expensive Ostrega or Beluga. Well, I’ve obviously never had caviar before so I decided to try it. Let me tell you, lumpfish caviar tastes horrible without any flavoring.


 I was looking for what to do with the rest of the eight dollar, two ounce, waste of money and found this recipe by Andrew Williams over at The Billionaire’s Butler.
I followed the recipe to the letter and I’ve gotta say, it wasn’t half bad. The over saltiness of the caviar was balanced by the chives and tangy sour cream, but I found the texture odd.  Would I try it again? Probably not, but it was interesting experience, and I don’t regret trying it.

Iron Man 3 Review.


           

I've tried to keep this spoiler free. 

It’s been a year since Whedon’s The Avengers took the movie world by storm. The wait is over, and the newest film in Marvel’s film franchise. The first entry in Marvel’s “Phase Two” begins Iron Man 3, the first Iron Man film not directed by Jon Favreau, and it shows.

There are three things I’ve come to expect from an Iron Man film. Killer special effects, awe inspiring battles, and snarky humor.  
Iron Man 3 doesn’t disappoint on two of these.

Tony Stark is suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and tries to cope with it by building new suits. With a new terrorist in town known as the Mandarin, Tony will need all the help he can get.
Pepper Potts has always been one to watch from the sidelines, and this really doesn’t change in Iron Man 3 aside from a brief, but awesome, scene near the ending of the movie.

Tony is pushed to the limit in the film. Without his suit, or any of his gadgets he must make do with his wits and resources at his disposal. He does this by macgyvering together a small aresenal and leading a raid on the Mandarin.

I am disappointed because of the lack of action in this movie. It’s not like the first two Iron Man, or the Avengers, and relies on a slightly boring story and annoying child sidekick.
The one brief battle in this film doesn't disappoint, but feels rushed almost. This isn't what I've come to expect from a Marvel Film, or an Iron Man film, at all.
I liked the ending, but I had the feeling that they put it in based entirely on the rumors that Robert Downing Junior is thinking of stepping away from the film franchise.
The acting, is, as usual, excellent and the dialogue lives up to the witty banter we've come to expect from Iron Man.
Over all I’d give it 3/5 Stars.


Happy Trails

Justin
