Exams, Blocking Intruding Wi-Fi Users With Paint, Microsoft Kumo?, More Sony PSP Colours, Killzone 2 Review From Xbox 360 Magazine

Labels: , , , , , ,

I am finally finished my exams. After studying last night from 8:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m., i wrote a successful Chemistry exam earlier this morning. Due to lack of sleep, i will probably take a nap after i make my 2 blog posts. Today, i am going to: re-design this blog, design my new blog and post on my new blog. I haven't found the right layout for this blog yet, so i may be changing it tomorrow, but we'll see. Anyways, i am finally free from exams and i can blog more often!

Are you too lazy to make a password for your home Wi-Fi connection? Is someone always stealing your Internet connection? If so, this is the fix for you! Yeah, it may sound like an advertisement, but you know what? People in my neighbourhood need to start putting some passwords on their Internet connection. I usually go over my 60GB download allowance every month, thanks to Rogers. So, sometimes, i just steal someone else's connection so that i'm not on my own Internet. Kind of smart if you ask me. Anyways, back to the main topic, since i'm going a bit off topic here. Some new emerging tech may make its way to the public. Researchers from the University of Tokyo have "developed an aluminum-iron oxide that blocks radio frequencies up to four times beyond existing anti-RF technologies. The paint puts out a magnetic field that resonates at the same frequency as the electromagnetic wave you're looking to block." Gizmodo also points out that it's not overly expensive, but at the same time it's not that cheap. According to their calculations, "Wi-Fi blocking paint would be $50 [USD] to manufacture." This won't be needed for me, since my password is pretty secure. I don't even have my own network password memorized. Luckily, i wrote it down... somewhere.

Lifehacker puts it best when they say, "Microsoft said that its Windows Live and Office Live services will merge into a single web portal, possibly dubbed [the name] Kumo." Is that good news? I guess so. The less tabs it takes up on my Start Menu, the better.

Are you tired of Japan exclusive PSP colours? If you are, then i suggest you stop reading this paragraph, since you can probably get the hint from the picture on the left side. Japan will be receiving four new "carvival colours." The four colours will be blue, red, yellow and green. These PSP's are just screaming, "Look at me!" In my opinion, we are not missing much here. Atlhough, some people will beg to differ. They are going for around $223 USD, with a more expensive model going for $279 USD. The more expensive model comes with a "4GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, PSP pouch, wrist strap and cloth bundle." That sums it up for the PSP news for today.

How good will Killzone 2 be? The only way we can really predict right now is from all of these Killzone 2 reviews. Oh, what's this? Xbox 360 magazine has just reviewed Killzone 2? This can't be good... or can it? So, the Xbox 360 magazine recently reviewed Killzone 2 and they surprisingly had some good things to say about it. At one point, they even mentioned that it beat Gears of War 2 in some aspects. The magazine had some more words for Killzone 2. "It's good. Really good in fact. This is the genre that has belonged to the 360 since its inception, but it finally looks like Sony has an Ace on its deck." Maybe Killzone 2 will live up to its hype, but only time will tell.

Yeah, blue would have to be the best colour out of these 4, but i think white still looks the best.
