What is this?

I was expecting something along the lines of Terminator, but instead, what I’ve got was a nonsensical mash-up of clips featuring a delusional Arnold Schwarzenegger.


Virtual Ambience

Here’s a neat little gadget courtesy of Transonix Studios that will have you immersed in the sounds of nature. It’s aptly named Virtual Ambience (yes, I know it’s typo, perhaps for dramatic effect) and packs an impressive selection of natural sounds and presets that you can play from the comfort of your own PC. While this wouldn’t spare you the trouble of going to the Amazon jungle–it’s still not the real deal–the fact that the program output sound in ways as to simulate distance and location makes for at least an believable experience. It’ll produce a perfect background listening session while you jot about your daily routine, for it is is sure to calm to spirits with its surreal and nigh-accurate presentation of the tranquility of nature.

The Maze

Despite what its name may have you think, The Maze is actually a prank that’s quite famous over the net. The premise of this pretentious game is simple, you guide a dot with the mouse cursor into the exit point of a maze, avoid touching the walls or else you’ll start all over again. Difficulty wise, most people will find it to be challenging at about mid-way through level three. The catch, of course, is that the fourth and final level is designed so that it is impossible to pass. This will lead to a prank at the end just as the player is trying to guide the dot to the finishing spot. I won’t tell you what this pranks consists of, that’s something saved for yourself or those you’re trying to prank.
