The era of the daily heroic is over! After much speculation that the one run per day random dungeon valor point rewards would turn into seven runs per week randoms instead, it turns out we are all getting exactly what we hoped for. Blizzard has finally commented on (and explained) the incoming v...

A bit of new code recently added to the PTR that's been uncovered by MMO-Champion might hint at an awesome new change to the way valor points will be earned from the random dungeon finder. Of particular note is this string: LFD_RANDOM_REWARD_EXPLANATION1 = "The first seven random dungeons of...

This cinematic masterpiece is well beyond any comment or explanation we can provide, but I'll try. 3D animated re-enactments of the news are popular in Taiwan, and several top stories from the past few months have broken out as viral videos. In this case, the animators decided to give visual life...

Think Apple's products are "really great," "incredible," "amazing," "really easy" to use, "awesome," "terrific," "incredible," "great," and "amazing"? If so, it's probably because Apple told you that's what they were in last week's presentation. The above video's been making the rounds -- it's all...

As has been widely emailed by our crack readers, the Apple Store is down as of midnight. We'd chalk this up to actual maintenance, but since it is officially Tuesday on the US East Coast, we'll give it the new-product benefit of the doubt. Some items, including Airport Express units and the Mac Mini...

One things about Apple geeks: We're not afraid to make fun of our own fanatical devotion. Take this great article at The Onion which describes the latest Apple product, The "iLaunch:""The iLaunch runs Keynote-formatted presentations in high definition through a built-in projector while displaying a...

Bill Thompson doesn't particularly like Apple. In his latest BBC News column, he manages to hit a bunch of anti-Apple notes: Apple is over-covered in by the media, Jobs single-handedly stole attention from the Consumer Electronic Show with the iPhone announcement, that Macs are regularly mentioned i...

Now that Steve Jobs is throwing us all for a loop with this brand new "Thoughts on X" series of his (please let it be a series, we're dying to know how he feels about season three of Lost), we thought it would be appropriate to remind ourselves of his glorious RDF moments of yore, and there didn't...

I guess I'm as susceptible to the famed Steve Jobs "Reality Distortion Field" as the next guy, but even during my initial viewing of the Keynote there was one thing that really bugged me: Jobs' claims about smartphone hardware keyboards. He said:"the problem with them is... they all have these keybo...

The dust has cleared, Steve's Reality Distortion Field faded away, and the Keynote is a mere memory. Now is the right time to ask you, our dear readers, if you thought this keynote was great or a yawn. On the showfloor reaction seems to be mixed, but I would have to say that more people are excited...

My new favorite Mock Apple Web Page: Reality Distortion Field. Damn them for making the entire page an image! How am I supposed to gratify myself if I can't keep adding more G5 minis and iPod monos into my shopping cart??? BTW - did you know that "reality-distortion field" is actually an entry at D...
