  1. My first sale in Steam Marketplace

    Since my last rant about CounterStrike Global Offensive's new customizations, I have continued to play the game and experimented with Steam Marketplace. The Marketplace is a place for you to sell your digital goods that you've earned on Steam. These include of course the latest custom skins and crates from CounterStrike Global Offensive, but also the whole host of trading cards that Steam brought in with their Trading Card system. That means that most major games have some form of tradeable goods. ...
  2. CounterStrike Global Offensive gets some customizations

All of these inputs are used by most drawing programs to vary the size, opacity ...

  4. Blackberry's Recent Woes

    Blackberry, the renamed Research in Motion, used to have a good 50% share of the smartphone market. Coming from its lofty heights as a global technology leader, its market share dwindled down to the miserable 2.9% it holds now, and it continues to decrease.

    I caught the Pokemon fever yesterday at the event, and was poking around looking at Pokemon X and Y news while playing Pokemon Showdown. There are some great memories there of the endless hours I spent as a child playing Pokemon Red and Blue. I guess I miss the excitement of opening a pack of cards and pulling out a shiny Charizard card or catching the 40th Abra that appeared since the rest teleported away.

    As I was poking around, I found the ...
