    Microsoft pulls a 180 (heh) on Xbone DRM

    They have. It's called downloadable content. I though MS was on to something when they have been offer free games to gold members. last month I downloaded Assassins Creed 2 for free, a title I was thinking of buying used. Its an older game, oine that already has a newer sequel on the selves...

    speakers, BIC America?

    Just playing devil advocate here I don't quite follow your statements on BIC, can you elaborate? Do you mean they don't allow their speakers to be reviewed? There are many good user reviews of the speakers on Amazon. They obviously aren't audiophile speakers. Pro reviews are done by people...

    Yes there really is a Kalamazoo

    indeed. I live north of KZOO in GR, and Bells brewery is great. All of West Michigan is booming with micro breweries now. In fact Grand Rapids is beer city USA (according to some internet popularity contest).

    Why get a receiver instead of just a very good HDTV?

    as well as the other reasons mentioned, there is also component switching. Most Receivers will switch your speakers from your HT, to your stereo, to your game system, to your record player.

    Help with hot cabinet

    yes, you definitely need a place for the hot air to escape. Can't tell what is above your cabinet but I assume it's the TV compartment? If you want the door closed, you need an inlet and outlet for air. You could rely on natural convection and just cut some type of ventilation holes. That...

    Where's The Day After DVD?

    I've been searching for info on this title and can't find anything. I know Anchor Bay rereleased it on VHS a year or so ago, but why no DVD release? Are they planning on doing one? I've been wanting this one on DVD for years.

    Problem completing downloads

    FYI, I have used Download Accelerator a lot, it works real well. You need to download from somewhere that supports resumable downloads, but most do now days. You can still DL from places that don't, it just DLs at normal speed. I usually use it for huge files...and i mean HUGE! Like linux ISO's...

    *** Official "TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES" Review Thread

    I must admit that I was very nervous when I heard they were going to film T3 without Cameron or Hamilton involved. After catching a showing last night I can breathe a sigh of relief...it wasn't terrible. It definately more action driven than story driven than its two predecesors, but there is...

    *** Official "THE HULK" Review Thread

    I must say right off that I am not an avid comic reader. I had watched the orginal Hulk back in the day and was interested in seeing what the new movie had in store. After see initial previews for the movie, I was less than impressed...trying to keep my expectations low so I wouldn't be...

    *** Official "HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES" Discussion Thread

    I'm not really sure what to say about this one. I enjoyed it, but i was dissapointed about something...and I can't quite put my finger off. I really liked the first 20 minutes. Then it slowed down a bit and I was expecting to see all this gore everyone is talking about. I didn't see any. There...

    *** Official "BASIC" Discussion Thread

    I thought this movie was horrid. I just saw it tonight. The first 3/4 of the movie is full of witty banter and military cliches. By the end, you're just praying for an end to all the logic twists and turns they try to throw you. I stopped trying to follow half way through. The dialog is lame and...

    The simple things in life that annoy us.

    due to recent "news" Prime time shows are pre-empted with special reports with news that hasn't changed in 24 hours. Or our local stations love to break for Weather Bulletins for 90 mins every time it rains and gets windy at the same time. Cell phones that sound exactly like mine. TV that...
