Top 8 Games for PS3...

Note: The list starts from number 8 and goes down to number 1

Grand Theft Auto 4

Like Rock Band, Grand Theft Auto 4's a tossup. More opponents for online play is great, but we're big fans of better graphics, and the PS3 has an ever so slight edge in that department. Plus, the install cuts down on loading screens, which gives us more time to ram firetrucks into dirtbikes. As if that wasn't enough reason to count this game among the best PS3 games ever, there's always the fact that you can push people in front of trains, saw pedestrians down with helicopter blades, and drive your dinner date off a cliff. Be bad, be wild, and be a menace!

Batman: Arkham Asylum

No one expected Batman: Arkham Asylum to be this good. In fact, no one expected it to be one of the most impressive and thrilling action games to ever hit the PlayStation 3. Thankfully, Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros./DC Comics made the invaluable choice of enlisting help from the best talent possible, including big…

Guide- Add custom ringtones and notifications to your Android device

Fed up of the stock ringtones? Feel the need to have incoming calls announced with a few bars of Barbie Girl instead? I was asked how to add custom sounds for ringtones on the HTC Hero, but this should work for any Android device. It’s pretty straightforward in truth. Here’s how:-Connect the phone to your computer via the USB cableOpen the Notifications screen on your phone (pull down a finger from the top of the screen to the bottom) and select the USB Storage notificationChoose “Mount”Browse to the SD Card on your PCLook for a folder called media, if it’s not there, create it by right clicking and choosing New Folder, then rename the folder to be mediaInside the media folder, you need a folder called audio, again, if it’s not there create it as aboveInside the audio folder, you can create a subfolder for the sound category you want to change- ringtones – for sound files you want to use as ringtonesalarms – for sound files you want to use for any alarmsnotifications – f…

What to do when you're drunk?

Tired of never having anything to do when you're drunk? It seems that most of us resort to the same intoxicated pass times: beer pong, card games and socializing with others. While these activities are certainly fun, it seems that new and original drunken experiences can be hard to come by. In fact, having a unique and fun time while drunk isn't very hard, you just have to use your imagination. Today, we explore fifteen fun and easy things to do when you're drunk. Try some out the next time you crack open your favorite bottle.

1. Breaking Stuff

Breaking stuff can be a great outlet for aggression and child-like fun when you're drunk. The more ridiculous the stuff you're breaking, the more fun it usually is. Electronics are always extra-enjoyable. Try to get your hands on some old computers or TV sets that haven't been used in ages. Once you're good and hammered, haul off and bust them apart however you desire. Try throwing them off high places or swinging a ba…

The 10 Most Disturbing Books Of All Time

In my younger days if I heard a book or movie was disturbing or hard to handle I generally took that as a challenge. Most books generally turned out to not be too bad, but occasionally I’d come across something that would leave me with a sick feeling in my stomach for weeks. I’ve largely outgrown this “genre” of late, but here are my picks for the ten most disturbing books of all time. Any one of these books is capable of leaving you feeling a little depressed at the least, and permanently scarred at the worst. I’d say enjoy, but that doesn’t really seem appropriate …10. BlindnessBlindness is a book with a truly horrifying scenario at it’s heart: what if everyone in the world were to lose their sight to disease in a short period of time? The answer is actually somewhat predictable, but that doesn’t lessen the bleakness as society collapses quickly in this novel by Portugese author José Saramago. The story follows a group of characters who are among the first diagnosed and sent to be q…

Ten Things You Didn't Know About Google

1) The most newsy news was today's launch of the Google Personalized Homepage, a sort of "My Google" that lets you plunk recent Gmail messages, Google News, news feeds from providers such as the New York Times, weather, and other bits of information onto Google's homepage. Personalization of this sort is a very old idea (My Yahoo has offered it for years), but Google's take on it looks typically Google-esque: It's simple, functional, and fast. Google's lab page lets you try it right now.

2) In the long run, the most meaningful thing we heard about today may have been a Google Research translation technology that involves statistical analyses of texts that are available in multiple languages (such as United Nations documents). The examples that we saw included a couple of Arabic-to-English translations that were, apparently, utterly perfect. If this process reaches a point where it works as well for documents of all sorts, and is available to everybody, it …
