Battlestar Galactica Scattered review

Well after watching the first episode "Scattered" of the second season of Battlestar Galactica about 6 times, I think I'm ready to give my verdict. Spoilers below. WOW! They're going places with this, you just know it's going to be ages before Starbuck and the people stranded on Kobol will be back on Galactica, they leave the first episode at an evil point a good bunch of toasters onboard! Colonel Tigh, what a character, you can just feel he's on the verge of the edge with all the stuff going on, having to find the fleet, having to deal with Starbuck going AWOL, the people stuck on Kobol, Commander Adama being out of action, one of his pilots being a Cylon, and that's before dealing with the reaction that will happen after the people find out President Roslin was arrested....

Battlestar Galactica

I knew we were in store for a treat when I saw the 2 part miniseries back in early 2004. But now having watched the whole of the first season - I can say it's the one of the best sci-fi series ever made. Those of you in the US and other places where it's just started screening - watch it!!! There are just so many cool things about it, it's silly to try and list all of them so I'll just go over the few that I think really bring it above the level....

Two days with the Zen Micro

My sister got her Zen Micro on Monday, after Creative released the new firmware for the device to add MTP/PlaysForSure support that was it, I had to get it - technically speaking it's mine as I paid for it - she's not paying me back until January 2006. Quick to charge up in about 3 hours, I installed the software, installed the latest firmware to update it for MTP support so I didn't need Creative's software, which was promptly removed, I'll let Microsoft handle the software thank you....

Xbox 2 media capabilities

Bill Gates speaking about the goals for the Xbox 2: Broadening the market, having media capabilities that when there's a PC, we connect up to that. This whole story of the Windows Media Connect and how all the formats and rights management and that simple Media Center menu that's just got TV, photos, music right there--those are common elements we're bringing to all the home devices. We didn't do Xbox just to do a video game; we did it to be part of our vision of the digital lifestyle, and with the next generation, we really get to go there....

iTunes rip off exposed

Well it had to happen eventually. The Office of Fair Trading have passed Apple's iTunes service on to the European Commission on grounds it's ripping off it's UK customers. "We're campaigning for free movement of goods and services in Europe and we'll take on any company, or group of companies, that seek to carve up the market to their benefit." To buy music through iTunes in the UK costs 20% more then in France or Germany....

Incubus on Halo 2 soundtrack

I've just managed to hear some of the Halo 2 soundtrack that's being released in November. Anyway Incubus have a few tracks on there (4 if my memory serves me), I've put together this little snippet (360KB/WMA9.1) of the first one - Follow (1st Movement of the Odyssey). Just thought them doing the Halo monk voices was kinda cool. It just really sucks that they're going to release a second album, no doubt with more of the actual stuff in the game, after all that's what soundtracks are for right?...
