CoD:WaW Passes GoW 2, Google's Troubles, Windows 7 Review

Labels: , , , , ,

So, the numbers are in. Call of Duty: World at War has just passed Gears of War 2 on units sold. To date, World at War has sold 4.34 million units, compared to Gears of War 2's reported 4.30 million. I've heard from many people that this new Call of Duty: World at War is actually worse than the last one, called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It'll be surprising to see how much the next Call of Duty sells. The main reason why people may be buying Call of Duty: World at War is because you can easily mistake it for World of Wacraft. Get it? World at War (WaW) and World of Warcraft (WoW). Maybe a possible collaboration soon. Call of Duty: WoW anyone? It's a [bad] joke.

So, we all know how much i love Google, well i am sad to say that, today, i must reveal bad news. Google is shutting down. Okay, i'm joking. Wait, maybe not entirely. "Included among the upcoming closures are: Google Notebooks, Google Catalogs, Dodgeball, Google Video, Google Mashup Editor, and future development of Jaiku." Looks like a lot of things are going down-the-drain in the Google camp. I don't really know what Jaiku is, but Techcrunch mentions that it will be "ported to Google App Engine, and will be released as an open source project on Google Code." Yes. Well, i guess that refers to programmers, so that's not for me. The Mashup Editor will also be sucked into the Google App Engine's black hole. Dodgeball was something made by Google to allow users "to share their current locations using SMS messages." "Google Notebook will continue to function for current users, but will no longer accept new ones." But, whoever uses Google Notebook will have to do so, without the use of it's browser extension, "which makes the service significantly useful." Time to find a replacement for all of you that use that. Google Catalogs. Why did they even make this? Oh, well. The biggest news on this list is definitely the one about Google Video. In a few months, the uploading capabilities will be disabled. This should have actually been done a while ago, since Google already purchased the most popular video site, Youtube, just over 2 years ago. Techcrunch mentioned that if Google is going to shut down some of their programs, Knol might be up next. Knol was Google's attempt to take down Wikipedia, but it never happened / worked.

So, whether you like it or not, you will be getting a Windows 7 Review from me. That is, if all things go well. Lifehacker has provided me with the information in order to dual-boot my computer, so that i can use Windows XP and the new Windows 7, whenever i feel like it. Hopefully, my friend brings his burned Windows 7 ISO copy to school tomorrow, so that i can install it on my laptop during lunch. If i get it successfully installed, i will be using it starting Saturday. On Thursday, i will be studying for my Math test, which is on the next day (Friday). On Friday, i will be at my girlfriend's house for the majority of the night. That leaves me at Saturday, which will be the day i review Windows 7. Right now, i don't really know how i am supposed to 'review' it. But, i guess i will find out a way to. Anyways, until tomorrow, i'm out. By the way, only expect one blog post tomorrow.
