    Probably. I placed my order at about 8:30 AM. No indications at all that it was OOS.

    Yamaha Front Surround System + $60 Newegg GC $150

    If you tried to get this deal, check your inboxes or your order status on NE. I thought I got this yesterday, and got notice that the order was voided today, AFTER my card was charged. Pretty pissed about it now. Might take a week to get my money back.

    Micro Center (in store) Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Preorder $38.88

    When I went to pick up my copy yesterday, they had copies on display in-store for the same price, so I'm guessing you don't really need to pre-order to get the discount if your local store has copies to spare.

    Dell to Offer Windows 7 After Launch of Windows 8

    This has happened before, and it isn't a good sign, really. I remember working for Lenovo when Windows Vista launched. Not long after, we offered a Windows XP image gratis.

    No Booting To Desktop In Windows 8?

    Just started giving the Windows 8 Enterprise evaluation a go. The "GUI formerly known as Metro" takes some getting used to, but it's not bad per se... just not really optimal for K+M.

    Machine Pours Shots Each Time US Wins a Medal

    BBC's coverage of the Olympics has been AMAZING because it's a non-stop, unadultered access to everything the games have to offer. I directly blame NBC for a lot of the ill will being thrust upon this year's Olympic coverage.

    (PSN) Dyad

    Cleared the main game and I'm running through the Trophy challenges now. This game is seriously challenging and addicting. It's odd because if you focus too much on any single aspect (node color, lance extensions, obstructions, etc), it gets more difficult than it is. There's a natural...

    Curt Schilling Blames R.I. For Troubles

    You can't spend a Call of Duty-sized budget on development and only pull down a million copies. You just can't. These projects got too big for their britches, especially if they were planning on asking for an additional loan to make a sequel.

    Wow, so these are both the cheapest and hands down the best ear-bud style headphones I've ever owned. I also have pretty big ears, but, oddly enough, if I twist it, the little lip that sticks out actually fits perfectly in the curvature of my ear, forming a nice secure, tight seal. Now I can...

    Biggest Tech Failures of The Last 10+ Years

    It's somewhat unfair to anchor other "Android tablets" with the disastrous TouchPad and Playbook. Also, seeing the Dreamcast on that list makes me so salty. PSO and Jet Set Radio all day everyday.
