+ - Europe Gets Nerfed PS3: No Motion Sensing

AbsoluteXyro writes "In an effort to control costs Sony has nerfed some PS3 functionality for the upcoming PAL launch. Most notably, Wii-like motion sensing control has been ditched. This is another kick in the behoogies for PAL territories, after long delays and the recent news that backwards compatibility would be limited. Sucks to be those guys."

bblboy54 writes "Gizmodo has declared March the month to boycott the RIAA. Sound The Sirens and p2p.net have both already shown their support for this.
From the article:
Gizmodo is declaring the month of March Boycott the RIAA month. We want to get the word out to as many people as humanly possible that we can all send a message by refusing to buy any album put out by an RIAA label. Am I saying you should start pirating music? Not at all. You can continue to support the artists you enjoy and respect in a number of ways."

+ - World Safecracking Champion Takes Down Bank Vault

Bob Slidell writes "http://technofart.com/index.php/2007/01/20/world-s afecracking-champion-takes-down-bank-vault-in-5-mi nutes-19-seconds-video/ Keep in mind that he's doing this entirely BY TOUCH-no drilling, no x-ray machines, no thermic lance, just his fingers. Jeff Sitar is, essentially, the world's greatest living safecracker. He has won the Lockmaster's International Safecracking Competition SEVEN times. In this video from the Discovery Channel show 'More Than Human', they have Jeff set up with 3 safe dials, each of which has a certain object attached to the ends of them (their spindles) which barely touches a post at a specific number on the dial: one dial, the easiest one, has a toothpick attached to it, another dial has a post-it note attached to it, and the third, and most difficult one, has a feather attached to it. The next thing they do is have him try cracking a locked gun safe, which he does in 4 minutes and 57 seconds, and lastly they set him up at a real bank in New Jersey (they won't say which one) to see if he can crack their vault: 5 minutes and 19 seconds. Cool"
