Online storage has increased, decreased, then increased again in popularity over the years. When Google dropped Gmail on us, hacks appeared that allowed one to use the free gig of storage for more than just email. Aaron Levie noticed a need for a good online storage medium, and the result is Box.net. Gear Live tested the service out a while ago, and came away impressed. Box.net is much more than just storage space for your files. We got a chance to chat with Aaron about how Box.net came about, its current features, and where it is headed in the future.

This week I had a discussion about the impending PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Revolution where I emphasized over and over again “We play the games not the specs sheet”. Having gotten that mantra out of the way there are some fascinating possibilities that this massive shift in computing and graphical power would bring to the video game world. Jacob from 8bitjoystick.com takes a look at the upcoming shift in the home console gaming experience in his column this week.

This weekend will be a good weekend for moviegoers as it seems there is a film for just about everyone coming out. This week we take a closer look at Lords of Dogtown and Cinderella Man, two good films set to hit theaters Friday, and a glance at The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and two limited releases. Whether you’re looking for a film with action and attitude, good acting and uplifting storytelling, or just a feel good movie, be sure to hit your local theater this weekend and take a break from everyday life.
The last Friday in May brings us a remake of a popular 1974 football film, an animated film from the people who gave us the Shrek movies, and a couple of films most of us won’t get to see, due purely to our location. Get a rundown of The Longest Yard, Madagascar, and a couple of limited releases after the jump.
So the Wayans Brothers are here at E3 to promote their new trading card/cell phone game “The Dozens”. It is basically a game where you swap “Your momma” jokes with a friend (or stranger for that matter), and score points based on the originality or hilarity of the diss. We got a few moments to speak with Shawn and Marlon Wayans about The Dozens, but they were more interested in making fun of all the E3 schwag I had on me.

This weeks edition of The Final Cut, Devin takes a look at Episode III. Last week she gave us a look at the various season finales taking place on television:
This week we’ll take a look at Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, a movie which hits theaters on Thursday, May 19th, and will have many theaters featuring a 12:01am showing to accommodate eager fans. Revenge of the Sith is the third and final installment of the Star Wars prequels and will bridge the gap between the Star Wars movies of the past 6 years and the original Star Wars, which was released in 1977. All 6 films in the Star Wars series have been produced by George Lucas. Lucas also has writing credits on all 6, and he directed Episodes, I, II, and III.
In this week’s edition of “The Final Cut”, Devin takes a look at some of the upcoming season finales over the next week. A week ago she gave us a preview of the summer movie season. Get ready for a summer full of reruns:
With May Sweeps quickly approaching, many of our favorite shows are coming to their seasons’ end. Many questions and mysteries that we’ve come across during the season are sure to be answered during each shows season finale, and I’m sure it is no surprise to know that most finales will leave us with a cliffhanger, and have us counting down the days to next seasons’ premieres. Today we take a look at finale listings from tvtome.com’s episode guide for some of the years highest rated shows, and see just what we can expect from some of out favorite TV shows, not to mention what questions we hope get answered.
I’ve been wanting to do something neat to my computer for a long time. I thought of etching something into the side window, thought of adding water cooling, I thought of doing a bunch of things. Well, in my search ventures online to find something neat to do I found a really cool mod to do with your PC using a PSone LCD Screen. Jump on down to see how it went.
Recently I picked up a PowerBook, and while I expected it to be “okay”, I did not expect to fall in love with OS X the way that I have. I am completely smitten. So much so that I had to pick up a Mac mini so that I would have a desktop Mac solution (and because it just calls your name when shopping at the Apple Store). The 80 GB version struck my fancy, but soon I realized that I am not one that enjoys playing mouse cursor beach ball all that much. The mini had half a gig of RAM in it, but the 4200-RPM drive was just holding me back. It was time to upgrade to a 5400 RPM 100 GB drive. Rather than taking it in to a service center where they would overcharge me, I did it on my own. If you want to upgrade your Mac mini’s hard drive, read on for our tutorial which takes a look at backing up your data, replacing your hard drive, and restoring your data.
A while back we gave away three box.net storage accounts to our readers. Heck, we even used box.net to host our NYC PSP launch photo album. The reason we gave three away two months ago was because we thought this seemed like a pretty neat service, so we took it for a more in depth look ourselves to tell you more about it. We provide a look at box.net after the jump.
