Gaming is (Not) the Root of All Evil

Jack Thompson, out-there-over-the-top activist for anti-anything gaming has come up with another unsubstantiated claim of “gamer violence”, where he appears to put gamers in the same category with hit men.

Too Many Bells & Whistles?

The “Weekly Rant” column was featured in the PC Mechanic Newsletter since 2005. Topics relate to some aspect of technology, which include opinions on hardware, software, new technology, technology companies, and computing standards. Cell phones today are both quite amazing and quite annoying at the same time. Annoying for many obvious reasons, which I won’t…Read More »
