Google Scribe: You Autocomplete Me

Google Scribe: You Autocomplete Me
While the big G is promoting their newfangled Instant search, it’s not the only newly unveiled technology from the company. Released just a few days ago, Google Scribe is a text completion service. Google says that the tool’s suggestions are based on what the user has already typed, but that’s not the whole truth.

Pokemon Fusion: Gotta Match ‘Em All
Alex Onsager’s Pokémon Fusion isn’t just a time sink, it’s a time black hole, even if you’re not a Pokémon fan. All you need to do is select two monsters from the list – the one on the left will be the base of the new monster’s body, and the one on the right will be the base of the color and the face of the new monster – like so:

The Pac-Man Dossier: All the Information You Can Waka Waka Waka

The Pac-Man Dossier: All the Information You Can Waka Waka Waka
I was never really into arcade games that much, so for me Pac-Man is but a simple game – eat the pellets before the time runs out, avoid the ghosts, eat the power pellets to eat the ghosts.

Level Up! Guild Wars 2 Pwns Other Mmorpgs With a Graph

Level Up! Guild Wars 2 Pwns Other Mmorpgs With a Graph
Grinding. It’s one of the ugliest aspects of MMORPGs, or RPGs in general. I remember reading an article about Ultima Online many many years ago, where the situation got so bad that one of the dungeons was actually running out of monsters.

Onlive Running Splinter Cell Conviction: Whaddaya Know, It Works!

Onlive Running Splinter Cell Conviction: Whaddaya Know, It Works!
I’m sure a lot of you have heard about OnLive, the gaming service that streams games to you from computers much more powerful than yours. Lots of people – myself included – were skeptical about the quality of service that it could provide.

Genostv Tvme: Youtube 2.0, Hulu Redo, or Actually Innovative?

Genostv Tvme: Youtube 2.0, Hulu Redo, or Actually Innovative?
This year a company called ShambroWest Corporation launched the “first-ever worldwide cable television network,” called GenosTV, which is a broadband-based service that will supposedly feature “cable, network and other media content from every geography and in every language across the world.” I pity the guy who has to make a channel guide for this.

Ufc Undisputed 2010 Patch to Fix Online Multiplayer Issues
Initially I bought UFC Undisputed 2010 for its career mode, but I ended up being disappointed with it, and so are a lot of other gamers. To make things worse, the online multiplayer is even worse than the career mode.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Online: for Kids Only?

Marvel Super Hero Squad Online: for Kids Only?
Gazillion Entertainment is developing an MMO featuring popular characters from the Marvel Universe, and it’s looking really cute. Really really really cute. So cute that older fans of the House of Ideas may find it repulsive.

How a Flash-Heavy Website Looks Like on the iPad
Apple claims that Safari on the iPad is the “best way to see the sites.” Well, here’s how Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 website looks like on the iPad:

5 Minute Mmorpg: Hurry Up and Get It Over With

5 Minute Mmorpg: Hurry Up and Get It Over With
If you don’t have the time, patience (or money) to commit to games like World of Warcraft, you might want to check out this game… 5 Minute MMORPG works exactly as advertised. The browser-based Flash game lets you go online against other live players (okay, 10 simultaneous players isn’t really massive), and play as one of over 30 different characters.

Youtube’S First Video: Historic, but Meh

Youtube’S First Video: Historic, but Meh
The first YouTube video was uploaded five years ago – April 23, 2005 to be exact. The site has gone a long way since then, being sold to Google for $1.6 billion, then wasting countless hours of our lives.

Ifeel_Im! Lets Your Computer Give You Hugs
Unless you’re some kind of otaku that’s stuck in his apartment for the whole day, you’ve probably got someone who can give you a hug. If you can’t find somebody to hug, let a stranger on the vast Internet give you one.
