    Support growing for an R18+ rating in Australia

    While you have no doubt seen or heard about the issue of the R18+ rating in Australia (if not, brush up here), there are many supporters both in an official and unofficial capacity. One of the “official” supporters is “Grow up Australia”. They teamed up with game store chain EB Games to gather as many survey submissions as they possibly could for the Attorneys-General to wade through. They did this by placing posters in 250+ EB Games stores nationwide to advertise you could fill out a survey there, and also by obtaining submissions via their own website. Aaron John Percival, one of the founders of Grow up Australia says, “support for the introduction of the R18+ rating has been overwhelming with ninety-nine percent of the submissions made through the website in favor of the change”.  Jake Edwards, the other founder of the group, adds that “with less than a week until the

    Review: Foursquare

    I’m not talking about your old school foursquare, with chalk, a ball and too much aggression. I’m about about the moblie app, and web site designed for people on the move and who wish to explore. For the longest time Foursquare was limited to a list of cities. If your city wasn’t on the list, then it was pretty much pointless to have the app.  Since then it’s been upgraded to the “Elsewhere” mode, where you can check-in no matter where you are.  People from all over, including my isolated self, can check in, give updates, become mayor and provide suggestions of things to do.   Yet the question is, why should I even bother?  What,  I really enjoy about this concept is that it is away to explore new cities while traveling, as well as the place you have lived all your life.  I found a wonderful coffee shop in the middle of

    EA teases AftertheImpact.com

    I love it when companies have a few hidden things up their sleeves. Today EA.com twitter posted this link: EA: http://www.aftertheimpact.com/ The website so far is a very large screen of what seems to be an airplane crash. If you just stay on the site, the sounds, music changes. It’s very interesting, but using your mouse you can zoom in on a few areas and learn about the settings. The tower seems to be sending a signal to citizens about illegal activity. There is a guy standing on a ledge that seems to be taking things in and he can’t remember much of what happened. There is an airline ticket for a passenger Benjamin Green but it is not exactly clear that that is the guy on the ledge. Definitely visit the site and take a look around. The art is interesting. It looks like there are four weeks of
