In case you missed it (likely you didn’t), professional wrestler Daniel Bryan (or Bryan Danielson) officially announced his retirement from professional wrestling due to issues stemming from multiple concussions. While it’s sad to see him go, I’d much rather have him walk away from the business on his own accord rather than have to be carried out. I’ve posted many times about Bryan on the site before (see HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE), and after watching him wrestle from his days in Shawn Michael’s Texas Wrestling Alliance back in 2000 to his WWE run, I’m going to miss seeing him on TV, but I’m glad I got to see his work when I did. #ThankYouDanielBryan!

Recently, the developers at Volition did something awesome by not just revealing a cancelled game in their most popular series, Saints Row, but by ALSO releasing it to the public FOR FREE for anyone to download! The game, Saints Row Undercover, was being developed for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) before Volition decided to cancel it. It began as a port of Saints Row 2, but it later became its own standalone game. None of that would matter as Volition would later cancel the game due to the prototype not meeting their expectations, but they recently rediscovered it and decided to release it to the wild. And that’s, like, really SUPER COOL! Continue reading Play the Cancelled ‘Saints Row’ PSP Game for Free!
If you’ve configured two-step verification for your Gmail account (AND YOU SHOULD), how about looking into plugging in a verified USB stick for extra security? Mainly because you can carry it wherever you go and, unlike your phone, it doesn’t lose battery or signal. Plus, Google says that it offers better protection against phishing attacks, and now YOU can set one up! Continue reading Now You Can Use A USB Stick To Securely Log In to Gmail…
SAY WHA?!?!? Along four man-made islands in Iskandar Malaysia, “Forest City” — designed by Sasaki Associates — is in route of becoming Southeast Asia’s largest mixed-use green development. Its master plan already has an estimated investment of S$58.3 billion (or US$40.9 billion) and is predicted to create approximately new 220,000 jobs to the area. The Forest City’s location near southeast Asia’s economic/commerce/culture hub (which contains financial institutions, R&D facilities, headquarter offices, etc.) is perfect for promoting live/work culture and “establish an innovative and sustainable employment base for the region,” as stated by the architects. We might have to wait until about 2036 to see the completion of this project though. Maybe Mighty No. 9 will be out by then…

This weeks pro wrestling post is short, simple, and mighty sweet. Let’s relive this moment of everyone jumping up and down like schoolgirls at a Beatles concert in the 1960s.
And now, from the (better) angle of all of the fans in the arena…
The most recent Pokémon commercials have really been stepping up their game in terms of production quality, for example, Pokémon Go, the upcoming mobile spin-off. But I’m not taking about that; I’m talking about the fact that there’s a Pokémon commercial being made for the upcoming (this Sunday) Super Bowl 50! Continue reading Wait, a POKéMON Commercial for the SUPER BOWL?!?!
Why won’t you die?!?
If you’re like me and have been counting down the days to when the bane of our online existence (also known as Adobe Flash) will just die and go away, while we may not have an exact date, we DO know that it WILL happen. According to the 2016 global media format report published by Encoding.com, Flash’s install base and use — which was 21 percent in 2014 — dwindled down to only making up six percent of mobile and web video in 2015, and believes that Flash will completely vanish within the next two years. Continue reading Flash is Expected to Die & Go Away in Two Years
During Syria’s four-year war, a large number of the country’s ancient monuments and artifacts have been destroyed by both ISIS and Syrian bombs targeted at Islamic extremists. For example, in August 2015, ISIS destroyed Palmyra, known as one of the most important cultural centers on the planet. That, however, won’t stop this group of Syrian refugee artists in Jordan (with some support from the United Nations and Internal Relief and Development) from constructing miniature models of Syria’s ancient architecture to salvage memories and artifacts for the Syria History and Civilization project. Continue reading Syrian Artists Build Replicas of Their Country’s Destroyed Monuments
I don’t know why I’m surprised by this being a thing. I should have known that madness of the legacy of the late-WWE Hall-of-Famer “Macho Man” Randy Savage was just TOO MACHO to stay in only one Bethesda game. Fallout 4 has been out since early November of last year, but I htink I speak for most gamers that the game was not as good as Skyrim due to the lack of the Macho Madness himself. As my PS4 and Xbox One-playing brethren have to wait until console mod support, PC gamers are reaping the benefit of modders creating the Macho Claws mod. Dig it?
