Psystar hijinks return with Open(3) Psystar has defied the odds again and released the Open(3), a compact version of it's lawsuit defying Mac clone line. Although the Quard Core 2 Duo setup won't steamroll the latest line of Mac Pros it will save you a grand or two for your trouble. Although the base configuration is missing a few important things like WiFi, it only runs at $600 before additional configuration. Make sure to nab it quick before the Cupertino lawyers descend like vultures. psystar

New Zealand Aliens Vs. Predator ads are way nifty

When faced with promoting the local television broadcast of noted sci-fi stinker Aliens vs. Predator,New Zealand

based ad company DDB went just a step beyond the call of duty and made some ads that were actually....good.

The series of ads features the familiar intergalactic foes competing in a series of everyday competitions such as

tether ball, chess and billiards. The art direction and 3d models are pretty good for a simple television airing of

this stagnant film property.

Pope Benedict XVI said condoms are not the answer to the AIDS epidemic in
Africa and can make the problem worse, setting off criticism Tuesday as he
began a week-long trip to the continent where some 22 million people are
living with HIV.
"You can't resolve it with the distribution of condoms," the pope told reporters
aboard the Alitalia plane heading to Yaounde. "On the contrary, it increases the
problem."
