Last week, purely by chance, I was looking to see if there were any Defiance earth republic (erep) hats or insignia on eBay. It's a show I like and having played at least some of Dark Metamorphosis on the MMO, I thought that maybe someone had created a replica of the Hellbug Combat Cap headgear that you can get in-game (hey Trion - real world merch for in-game items - killer idea! ;-) ).Anyway,

Looks like an xbox one is in my future (well... now it's a definite) ;-)Not that you get to see a lot of game play in this game informer video, but it's interesting to see that the world goes on after the events of Gears of war 3 :-)
Ο ομώνυμος παππούς
Τον παππού τον Αποστόλη δεν το ήξερα καλά. Έχω την εντύπωση πώς τα άλλα ξαδέρφια, λόγο του ότι ήταν κοντά στο Λεόντιο, ή είχαν εξοχικό στο χωριό τον γνώριζαν καλύτερα. Εγώ τον είχα δει μια ντουζίνα φορές στην ζωή μου - ή μάλλον
Jurassic Trek files: What's that thing spock keeps looking into?
This comic strip of Jurassic Trek makes fun of the that rectangle that Spock keeps looking into *there are monitors on the bridge, aren't there?)(original archive here)
Defiance | Dark Metamorphosis
Hey! There is a defiance update! Woohoo! This past weekend I downloaded an update to defiance - which was surprisingly small (my weekly STO patches seem quite huge in comparison). The Trion team released a short season update with the release of season 4: Dark Metamorphosis. This update brings us five new missions for our Arc hunters. Now that Nim Shodu has been defeated (hahaha!

Ad from a computer magazine for the Newton 2100The Apple Newton is one of those devices that I had been keeping my eyes on for a while. I wasn't sure when the original device was released - the original messagepad - but I know that it was out in the market when I came back from Greece. While I was in Greece I couldn't really afford to spend money on computer magazines, as much as I wanted
Ghostbusters 2016 trailer looks great! :)
I had my doubts about the New Ghostbusters film (mostly because I thought they were going with the old ghostbusters just rehashed), but this seems like it's going to be a really good film picking up from where the original quartet left off! Can't wait to see it :-)
Wintergatan - Marble Machine
2000 marbles make some really nice music ;-)
Tablets are dead...not!
Every now and again I come across a piece of clickbait that I just can't help but to click on. This past week I saw this piece on TechCrunch the other day, supposedly proclaiming that tablets are dead. The main thesis of the article is that since there wasn't a lot of brand new, innovative, product in the tablet lines at MWC (mobile world congress) that the tablets are now a commodity

[SPOILERS - if you have not see it yet, go see it] A couple of summers ago, while driving around in Greece, I was listening to Trek.fm (best time to try new podcasts is when you are driving a lot!) In one of their shows (the continuing mission) they explore fan made productions that continue the stories set in the Trek universe - and Star Trek Horizon was one of these productions.After a long time
