Yahoo! Answers

yahooanswersThe internet sure did us a lot of good by search engines and whatnot, a concept that would be further refined in Yahoo! Answers. In this inituitive service, users are able to search databases that includes millions of questions asked by regular joes like ourselves, and all the answers that respond to it. Asking a question would almost immediately get you a response from like-minded viewers or experts in the field, whether it’d be computers or gardening. Perhaps the most appealing factor in this are the community-driven approach that has proven to be almost as effectively as the ones you see in Wikipedia. Though not always free from spam or irrevalant Q&As, the mere fact of quantity more than compensate.

Glest

glestSure there are plenty of free online games out there, but what are the chances of a RTS strategy title fitting the category? Glest, as it would seems, fills up that gap pretty nicely without being a drain in your wallet. Bearing acceptable 3D graphics, players can expect to find a wide range of units to play across the 2 default factions. And while it doesn’t stand up to the commercial titles in terms of its polish and content, the low download size and system requirements more than make up for it. As it is an open-sourced game, there are the obvious mods and custom maps for users to enjoy, further remedying the aforementioned flaws it may have.

So here we are, bored and irritated by the constant scream and jitters of girls praising Twilight as the best film ever made in the history of mankind. What you don’t get is all the hype this film is getting, and neither do I. Fearing the unknown, you wish you’d seen the movie but don’t want to sit through over 100 minutes of vampire footage. This rather short and narrative version of Twilight shall satisfy just that itch, with some fun along the way.
