Hardware Hacking

+ - Fountain pens are eco-friendly->

Submitted by

death metal black metal writes "Fountain pens are less wasteful and more fun to write with. If you buy one of the low-end but highly functional fountain pens mentioned here, and use it with bottled ink for a year, you will have avoided throwing out any number of plastic and metal disposable ballpoints, or ballpoint refills. The ink you are using is of a chemically simpler nature, and requires less industrial mess in its production.

We uphold the spirit of this music by keeping its stance of walking apart from society and not attempting to become more like normal music or think like normals.

Censorship

+ - Economic censorship blocks adult-rated games->

Submitted by
death metal black metal
death metal black metal writes "Sometime this year you might be putting a disc labeled Manhunt 2 into your Wii or PlayStation 2, but it won't be the game the creators originally intended.

The developer, Rockstar Games, was forced to slam on the brakes when the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, or ESRB, gave Manhunt 2 a rating of Adults Only, or AO.

Neither Sony nor Nintendo allow AO-rated titles to be released on their hardware, and most major retailers refuse to stock the games. As a result, creators whose games get an adult rating usually trim back the content or decline to release the product.
