2013 MOST ANTICIPATED GADGETS
Posted by 57 CommentsXtreamerAdmin on January 2, 2013 under Featured, The Desk
The year 2012 saw quite a few really major events. What with the mass hysteria over the end of the world, almost every launch was equally (if not more dramatic) than the anticipation of the apocalypse. The launch of the iPhone5, the Samsung Galaxy SIII, the war of the patents and much much more, truly made it a year full of surprises, disappointments, and thrill.And now, 2013 shyly makes an e... more.

Posted by 52 CommentsXtreamerAdmin on under Featured, The Desk
In a world of 24-hour news cycles, where 90 percent of cable news airtime is devoted to a presidential election a year and a half away, and where marketing flacks start hyping their studio’s films before casting has even finished, I thought we’d go ahead and get a jump on the slate of movies scheduled for the year after the presidential election. Yes, it’s two years away, but if 2012 is... more.

Normally, these most anticipated games lists come in a top 10 variety, but 2013 is so packed with great new releases, that it was hard to whittle it down to just ten.

Listing thirteen titles seemed like an appropriate number, too, given the year. 2012 gave us many quality game release... more.

Posted by 0 CommentsXtreamerAdmin on under Featured
"Louie" is still TV's best comedy. The final season of "30 Rock" is filled with everything we love about "30 Rock." "Homeland" has some magnificent acting, and who am I to argue with all those Emmy wins? But none of them made my list of the five best shows of 2012. Neither did very good shows like "Girls," "Modern Family," "Veep" or "Justified." "Nashville" is my favorite new drama -- an... more.

President Barack Obama makes a cameo appearance in "Zero Dark Thirty" via a news clip that lasts less than 20 seconds. We barely hear from - or about - Obama otherwise. Would that have been the case had New Media not been alive and kicking? We're guessing not. We know the studio behind the film felt pressure about the original release date - mere weeks before the presidential election. Cons... more.

After another year in the dark, it's almost cruel to winnow it down to just a few titles. Yet as I emerge into the light rubbing my eyes, here are the visions that refused to fade. 10. Looper A time travel movie that doesn't take itself too seriously, with a third act that hits like a buckshot blast. I'm hoping for a spin-off with Jeff Bridges as Abe, the laconic dude from the future. 9. ... more.

10. Lifeproof Nüüd Case for iPad When the folks at Lifeproof—creators of renowned watertight case for iPhones—sat down to design a similarly waterproof case for customers’ beloved iPads, they noticed something: the device is already covered in thick glass.
