For racing fans desiring a more realistic gaming experience, two things are a must: a steering wheel and a trio of larger monitors. Past that, some have even opted for a legit racing seat - some with built in vibrations. Of course, this is all expensive, but it's the price that some pay to get an experience that's just not realistic in real-life for most people.

With LAN Parties, it's more about the guests getting to show off their system's performance, their superior gaming skills or the beauty of their custom built dream machines.  Yes, there may be an overdose of caffeine related items, but in the end, it's all about bragging rights...

Going along with yesterday's update on Google Maps, some Asian governments have voiced their opinion on the technology... they don't like it. There's still some debate has to how serious of a security risk the satellite images are, as the images are a few years old. Living in New Hampshire, I have no concerns as most of my state lacks detailed images. Area 51 has higher quality pictures... could the government be hiding something in the granite state?
