    Xbox cooling fan dying, anyone know what size it is?

    About every other time I turn my Xbox on, I get the tell tale sound of a fan bearing going. After 15-20 minutes it dimishes and goes away. Anyone else have to replace their fan and know the size before I open it up twice? TIA

    Question abuot IPod/U2 commercial

    In the commercial for the IPod with U2 singing, the song starts with a count: uno, dos, tres, catorce. Is this an actual U2 song or is it just for the commercial, and if so, why are they counting 1, 2, 3, 14? The first time I heard it I thought maybe they meant 1, 2, 3, 40 since there is a 40...

    Talk about overexposure, how about "Clocks" by Coldplay?

    I just have to say that I am so tired of "Clocks" turning up either as background or bumper music for just about every sporting event on TV in the last year. The latest is ABC golf coverage where they use a redone version for pretty much everything. Why is it that certain songs just get beat...

    Question for Unreal Championship players. How often do you get dropped when playing Live? I'm trying to rule out my connection. Sometimes I can play 10-15 games no problem but once things start getting glitchy, I get dropped once every 5 games or so at times. Is this what others are seeing...

    They had a page seperate from their other DVD's that had two pre-order DVD's, Spiderman and ATOC. I know ATOC is available MAR (not sure about Spidey) but they showed the Widescreen package for both films. If so many customers at Wal-Mart complain about widescreen, why didn't they put the...

    I saw this article on MSNBC that has Jack showing the Senate Judiciary committee a priated copy of Gladiator in a hearing. He said that someone from the MPAA supposedly downloaded this off the internet and said something to the effect that no one would ever go to the movies again if this if...
