Firefox Released

The Mozilla team has released Firefox, containing mostly security fixes. If you are using Firefox (and if you aren't, why not?), make sure to head on over and download this update.

Ars Playstation Fix

Ars Technica posted a couple of news stories on Sony's Playstation. The first talks about the PS3's operating system, or perhaps more accurately, how the OS will make use of the hardware. They also hear that Sony is planning to cut the price of the PS2 to $129. You would think that everyone who wanted a PS2 would have one by now, but it keeps selling.

No Aero Glass in Vista for Pirates

According to Ars Technica if Windows Vista detects that you are using a pirated copy, you won't be able to use Aero Glass, the new 3D user interface. How it will determine you have a pirated version is as of yet unknown. You can make two bets right now: 1) someone will very quickly figure out a workaround for this, and 2) someone with a legitimate copy will have problems because Vista will insist that it's a pirated copy.

As an aside, when Vista comes out, XP will be the first Microsoft OS I have ever completely passed by. I've had to use it on the work computer. All I can say about it is, "Well, it's kind of better than Win98, or something, I guess."

Your Semi-Annual DNF Update

Gamasutra posted a few tidbits on Duke Nukem Forever from Computer Games Magazine. The way the snippet sounds, there's not a lot to show about the game. Like most people, I seriously doubt that DNF will ever see the light of day. Even if by some miracle 3D Realms would get it done, will anyone care?
