Could games hardware soon be a thing of the past? Rumors have emerged that Sony was about to snap up a major gaming streaming service. Will PS4 even get released? What will that mean to MS’ Smartglass?
John Carmack has been building a virtual reality headset in his spare time. He’s showing it to people behind closed doors at this year’s E3, tucked away inside the Bethesda booth, and described it as “probably the best VR demo the world has ever seen.” Click here to watch the video demos.
The goggle screens completely cover your vision, meaning the only thing you can see are scary corridors and flying heads.

A new, and potentially hilarious, trend these days is ‘revenge websites’ that offer to help you get anonymous harmless or harmful (you choose)revenge on the ex that hurt you, the neighbor that annoys you, or the boss that torments you.
Services offered range from fake photos, disguised caller IDs, delayed emails with fake names that you select so that you can establish an alibi. Other services include “nuisance” anonymous calls that wake them in the middle of the night. You can buy a ten-pack for the low low price of $29.97! How about hiding your IP address and posting embarrassing photos of your ex? Perhaps list him on a gay website(if he is straight) or post him on a Christian celibacy site (if he is gay).
Granted, if you are busted, you face legal or civil difficulties.
Personally, if you need to spend this much time and effort on punishing someone, instead of just getting the hell out of there, perhaps your money would be better spent on therapy. Just sayin’…

A list of keywords used by government analysts to scour the internet for evidence of threats to the U.S. has been released under the Freedom of Information Act. The words are included in the department’s 2011 ‘Analyst’s Desktop Binder‘ used by workers at their National Operations Center which instructs workers to identify ‘media reports that reflect adversely on DHS and response activities’. The Agency insists it only looks for evidence of genuine threats to the U.S. and not for signs of general dissent. *phew* I imagine we piss them off almost daily here at TokSick
