Video Games Through the Years. From 1990 to 2008, this is a comprehensive list (with screenshots) of the video games since the early 90’s. I still can remember the Family Com days.

UPDATE: I DON’T MAKE COPIES OF THIS GAME. I’M NOT AUTHORIZED AND I DON’T HAVE THE DVD WITH ME ANYMORE. GET YOURSELF A COPY FROM YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORES LIKE IN MAKATI SQUARE OR IN QUIAPO. IF YOU ARE TOO LAZY TO GET YOUR ASS TO YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORE, THEN BETTER GET LOST!
NBA 2K9 is now available for PC. EA’s NBA Live 09 isn’t anymore.
I’m not sure about the marketing strategies of these two competing NBA video game products.

Say hello to Gmail voice and video chat.
Gtalk, which is a desktop application for chatting and voice chat (as differentiated to Gmail chat, which is a built in chat function within Gmail), already used to offer voice chat.

Turn a PlayStation 3 Into a PC – Dual Boot with Ubuntu
Now what do you think of this? Dual booting the Sony PS3 game console and Ubuntu Linux in your Playstation 3. Bad thing, I don’t have a PS3, can’t try this on my own.
