Awesome Galaga High Score!

I just had a awesome game of Galaga! My final score was 126,560! And I was on Level 18. That is a far cry from 20 Million of the world record, but it is only 4,330 points from the third highest score according to twin Galaxies! Woo Hoo!! I am going to have to start recording my sessions!

My Galaga, snuggled all nice and tight between my Neo·Geo and my Marvel Vs. Capcom (also runs Street Fighter Alpha)

Levi's and the Dumbest Ad Ever!

Really there isn't much to say about this ad. I am browsing the web and I see this ad with an awesome Captain America tee-shirt:

And when I get to the site the only tee-shirts they offer are these lame ones:

Now who was the idiot photographer that shot that photo? The last thing I would notice in that photo would be a pair of jeans! Even the Jacket is more noticable! So now I am angry because I was hoping to get that sweet Captain America tee, and they want to sell me their crappy jeans! Nice job Levi's now if you excuse me I will be looking for that tee-shirt.


Thanks Random Person from the comments below who found the shirt! Turns out that the back version is out of stock, but they still have it in Navy!

T-Mobile Sidekicks Useless Worldwide for Four Days Because of Danger/Microsoft

Seriously this is ridiculous that a company takes 4 days and counting to restore data services to a phone that is designed for primarily data!

Below: Note the lack of a 'G' by the signal strength meter and the dates. Yes that is a Galaga theme :-)

What is Microsoft thinking‽‽‽‽‽ This has been a trending topic on Twitter for the past few days. And finally yesterday they made a statement:

T-Mobile and Danger/Microsoft continue to urgently work to restore impacted services to Sidekick, and deliver them to our customers as quickly as possible. Following is a status update for our valued customers:

  • Web browsing was restored Saturday afternoon, and the teams have been working through the night since the disruption started to enable additional functions such as IM, social networking applications and email as quickly as possible.

While we anticipate a significant portion of data services to be restored by Monday, some richer data services may lag. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience as we work hard with Danger/Microsoft to resolve this issue. We will continue to keep you updated as we have news to share. Thank you. Message Edited by Will on 10-04-2009 12:42 PM

If it weren't for the ridiculously cheap $1/day unlimited data pre-pay plan (hidden at bottom of page) I would drop t-mobile. But you can't get a plan like that anywhere else. I tried.


The Consumerist is covering this story, T-mobile's statement is false though, I don't have web browser service yet.
