Sling Releases SlingPlayer Mobile For WM6

A slingplayer for your mobile device? This is insane. I still haven’t gotten a slingbox yet, but after talking with many people. It looks like it would be a good investment. Sling Releases SlingPlayer Mobile For WM6 – Just a quick heads up to anyone with a new HTC Touch perhaps and a Slingbox. Sling Media released a new Windows Mobile 6 version of the popular SlingPlayer. You can now watch your favorite local TV while on a bus, train, or in your neighbor’s crack den. Lovely. It’s $30 for an upgrade to the WM6 version but if you’ve been using the WM5 version for a while now, it’s a free upgrade for you. Sling unpacks SlingPlayer Mobile for WM6 [Electronista] [CrunchGear]

pyctd 0.4.2 (pyctd branch)

This is a really neat application, however I was not able to get it to run on Debian Testing. I was getting a strange error message after installing "python-ctypes" "libnetfilter-conntrack1" through apt-get: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/pyctd", line 27, in ? import pyctd File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pyctd/__init__.py", line 2, in ? from pyctd.conntracking import DataCollector File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pyctd/conntracking.py", line 31, in ? import pynetfilter_conntrack as nfct File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/pynetfilter_conntrack/__init__.py", line 4, in ?

WoW Database Site Sells for $1 Million

WoW Database Site Sells for $1 Million - MattHock writes "Wowhead (a WoW information database) has to ZAM (Affinity Media) for the price of $1 Million. ZAM is the owner of several other WoW databases, including Thottbot and Allakhazam. Until recently Affinity was also the owner of IGE, a highly controversial company that sold in-game wealth for real life money. Affinity recently sold IGE, which Wowhead claims as the reason they allowed the sale to go through. But did ZAM really sell IGE? The blogger who put this story online doubts that IGE and ZAM have actually distanced themselves. He believes that the supposed sale was just actually a means of restructuring to hide the relationship, similar to how IGE's relationship to Thottbot was hidden for a number of months through a convoluted set of parent companies."

AMA to Vote on Whether or Not Video Game/Internet Addiction is a Real Medical Condition. What about blogging?

I actually thought I was addicted to Video Games, but then I woke up one morning and started to install Drupal. Now my addiction has moved to playing around with Drupal and Blogging. :(
AMA to Vote on Whether or Not Video Game/Internet Addiction is a Real Medical Condition -

amaaddiction.jpg

The American Medical Association is taking steps to classify Internet and video game addiction as an actual medical condition. A vote is scheduled next week where members will decide whether or not to officially apply the “addiction” label. Bah, addictions are good for people. They help build character, at least the fun ones do.

In all seriousness, how many stories have we seen about some guy essentially giving up his real life to exclusively live a Second Life or to level up his Blood Elf until he passes out? Sure, this article points out that public scares like “they’re listening to too much rock music” or “rap encourages and celebrates the thug lifestyle” are common in American history, but video game and Internet addiction certainly seems to exist, at least anecdotally.
