Last time we checked, Microsoft’s solution to the Wii’s motion controls, Project Natal was slated for the holiday season. GamesIndustry.biz reports that Microsoft Saudi marketing manager Syed Bilal Tariq said that Project Natal will launch “somewhere in October” worldwide. Granted, it’s not a solid release date, it’s still something to wet the fanboys who can’t […]


[Note: This is a re-post from Ploked from 4/28/10] More, more, more. In the tech world, who doesn’t want more megahertz in their CPUs? Faster and more powerful GPUs for the increasing demand of high definition video from 1080p. Moore’s Law states that every two years the number of transistors on a circuit board can […]


[Note: This is a re-post from Ploked from 3/15/10] Prior to 2006, video games were for the hardcore. Xboxes, PlayStations, and Gamecubes separated the boys from the men.

Pastatech gets a lot of flak for gearing towards Apple all the time (just look the tag and category sidebars, Apple is the largest one), but let me get this out right now – I am not an Apple fanboy by any means. I do not discriminate against any tech company. If products suck, they […]


Seriously. I love Hoggworks Studios puppets when they talk technology. Check out these two exclusive interviews Walt Mossberg has with Apple CEO, Steve Jobs and Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer. Which one do you like more? I’m leaning on the Ballmer one. Ballmer is always fun! Hoggworks Studios


Ah yes. The age old battle between Mario and Sonic. Whose side were you on? I’m a Mario fan. Sonic never really caught on with me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved waking up at the crack of dawn just to watch the Sonic TV show back in the 90’s and I even bought a […]


By now, just about everyone and their grandma knows about the whole Google versus China fiasco. News that big can’t be quelled; I’ll bet even the technology averse Amish know all about it. What a lot of people don’t know is that Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6 (IE 6) played a role in helping hackers attack […]
