For those of you who don't know, Ad-Awards is a nice website that gives out awards to advertisements from all around the world. They have released their January selection. Only four, but it's worth it.

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Gameboy Advance) is out in both the United States and Europe as of this week. I just bought the game and am having quite the amount of fun! The pixel art work is WONDERFUL, and actually quite amazing. Some of the characters pull off a cel-shaded type of look with wonderful animations (what amazed me most was that when their faces turn to look at you, they can also look diagonal! DIAGONAL!).

Brainsur at slashdot.org writes "Today Bill Gates visited Belgium to talk about the Electronic ID card introduced last year in Belgium as experiment. Microsoft announced that they will integrate the electronic identification into the Windows Software so they can deliver more security and privacy on the internet. The register has more news."

A good time to switch to Linux, my Belgium friends.

Sony has finally announced March 24th as the release date for the $250 Sony PSP. The PlayStation Portable will be able to play games with advanced graphics, play music and videos, play certain movies (PSP exclusive) like FF:Advent Children, and more. Even though I am pro-Nintendo and anti-Sony, I can safely say that the PSP is delicious. I really hope that the DS can come out with some better games before the PSP's release.

Everybody's competing nowadays. AOL has started beta testing its own new stand alone web browser [link]. Anyone with an AOL or AIM screen name can use it. However, instead of basing it on Firefox, AOL has based the browser on something geeks wouldn't expect: Internet Explorer. As if IE didn't already have enough loopholes, do we need a bunch that are labeled "AOL"? From reading reviews, AOL does the usual by loading your computer with spyware and adware upon installing the web browser. Skip this and Get Firefox!

It seems that plenty of hackers are going to try to ruin our Firefox. Yes, you heard that right. Stiennon (Vice President of Threat Research at Webroot) has spoken to the media telling us that he expects there will be spyware for Firefox by the middle of the year! While we sit comfortably with our "0 Found" Ad-aware scans, hackers are at work on a new generation of spyware.

"Firefox was written for the existing world of Internet Explorer exploits, but it has its own vulnerabilities that will be exploited," says Stiennon.

Google is now offering an alternative to MapQuest. Google Maps (beta) gives everything that MapQuest would in a better, easy-to-use interface (pretty nice design, too).

Try it out!

Well, everything cool has happened. Iwata, president of Nintendo, has announced that the Nintendo DS will be online (via the nick "noline" since it will use Wi-Fi) and a new trailer for the Legend of Zelda was released. Lots of fun!

Just yesterday, I decided to take a look at the latest Ptoing and Helm collab work. What I saw, instead, was gay porn. I logged in and did a search for some posts and found nothing; the whole board had been cleared out by the hacker.

The temporary board is Ptoing's and you can find it here. You can also find a chat transcript with the hacker here.

If you have visited Pixelation yesterday, during the Gay Porn stage, please run both a Virus and a Spyware scan, since those have been leaked to visitors by Soopcan.

"never rely on outdated free software," he says, which is apparently a good thing to remember when starting a message board.

Personally, I think this is the best footage of the movie yet, and it looks very very cool. From what we can see here, part of the movie will explain Bruce Wayne's backstory, which hasn't been done on film yet. The costume looks wicked cool!

Can't wait to see the real thing.

This is a hilarious indie developed pixel art game based on Jack Thompson's proposal for a video game (in which a father gets revenge on the game industry which killed his son, obviously Thompson's cup of tea). If you don't know who Thompson is, he's the guy that put an Adults Only rating on GTA:SA because of the Hot Coffee mod. Thompson said that if any game developer creates the game that he invtented, he will donate $10,000 to a charity. Read about Thompson's video game and proposal here. And download the game here! The lead sprite artist is Derek Yu.

Some countries have stamps with presidents, national monuments, flora, ancient artifacts, and overall pretty pictures. Japan, however, is going in a different direction with new Super Mario Bros. stamps soon to be released! These stamps will have memorable Super Mario Bros. characters and items. For just $27 you can grab all ten of them in a pretty cool case. Check em out!

Every day for three years and not a single smile, pretty depressing. Watch.

Chat with a random person! Just pick a language and wait until you get connected. Then, make some new friends or act like a complete fool.
