Electronic Arts may still be smarting from its less-than-stellar launch of SimCity, but the videogame giant has more tricks up its sleeve. It’ll be looking for a win with Fuse, the long-awaited FPS that has you fighting your way through a mess of baddies with a team of elite fighters.

If you are a technophile, what's the first thing your wife / friend / relative does when they can't figure out something, or when there's a problem, no matter how small, technology-wise.  Yep, they come to you. Now, yes, most of us here are technophiles, but besides that a new Pew Internet & American Life Project study (.PDF) which focuses on "When Technology Fails," seems to show that youth and gender play a role in how confident a user will be in fixing a tech failure by themselves.

We don't know about you, but we're getting tired of headlines with "(fill in the blank) Killer" in them. It's pointless anyway, if you're talking about Apple, for instance. It's useful to remember that Apple could sell poison popsicles at the North Pole with a 400% profit margin and there's be a line for them, so let's forget about killing the iPod for now. But SanDisk, the second largest seller of MP3 players in the world is out with their new, powerful, cheap and tiny player, and it's going to be a... be successful. Model... Read more...
