Some people are already playing:
I did some research and some tweaking on the servers that are hosting schrankmonster yesterday. I hope your experience is faster now.
Well I always wanted to have something like that: An archive for old versions of software. Comes in very handy. Did you know that an old version of Winamp only takes 0.5mbytes of your memory to do the job?
“Sometimes upgrading to a newer version can be a good thing. Other times, your computer may not be compatible with the new version, the new version is bloated, or all the options you liked are no longer available. OldVersion.com has been supplying the online community with old versions of various programs since 2001. The service is utilized by thousands of users every day and has been featured in newspapers and magazines as well as on radio and television.”
There’s a free fan made Battlestar Galactica game available…
“Beyond the Red Line is a stand-alone total conversion for the award-winning Freespace 2 released by Volition and Interplay for the PC. It is based on the popular new tv-show Battlestar Galactica. No, not the one from the 70s.”
It’s free and available for Windows, OS X and Linux.
If you need one, take a look at this one:
“A free, full-featured, graphically laid out, high-precision, scientific calculator for Mac OS X 10.4 and greater. Full source-code is included with the distribution.
Ideal if you need to enter large expressions or have accurate precision. “Data” drawers allow an easy way to generate statistical data, linear regression and gaussian elimination. The extensive support of complex numbers and hexadecimal numbers is also a significant benefit for anyone who has to work with this type of data.”
Was man nicht alles so entdeckt, wenn man nur ein wenig genauer hinsieht:

Hmm… Once upon a time there was a guy with an idea. The idea simply breaks down to this:
“Sell full price games to people and get an extra revenue out of in-game advertising.”
So here we are: I just found pacific city in crackdown literally plastered with Dodge advertising. Once day it was Dell… if you’re playing in the UK you’ll probably get army ads… how sick is that.
The first game that got this kind of in-game advertising was Testdrive Unlimited. The advertising was only available in the US of A and when you bought the game there it wasn’t full-price but $20 less than a full price title – because of that in-game ads. As an european player you didn’t see any ads and you had to pay the full price.
To be clear: I don’t think in-game advertising sucks. I just think that if you’re gaining revenue from in-game advertising you should share it with the players who actually bought the game. (e.g. lower the game price).
In the case of crackdown there’s no lower price. And that sucks.
Also was auch immer auf der CeBIT sonst vorgestellt wurde: Für mich war die Sensation (obwohl nicht neu) der biegsame Bleistift. Ich wusste gar nicht, dass es sowas gibt. Und viele andere Leute wohl auch nicht, sonst wäre das Gedränge an dem Stand sicher nicht so groß gewesen.
