Whoa, those are pretty damn badass. Where did you get them? (Not that I'm going to ever wear cufflinks more than, say, once a year, but still!)

Re: Books you're reading now

House of Leaves is a MINDFUCK :P It's the only book that has ever given me nightmares. Do yourself a favor and download the album "Haunted" by Poe. She's the author's sister and is a companion piece to the book. Don't listen to it in the dark though. C'mon, the album isn't that scary... a...

Re: Diablo 3 Beta

Only letting you play up to level 13 is so evil (but also a good idea)... just enough to whet your appetite, but not enough to ruin your actual dinner. Too bad dinner's at least a few months off. :( The game looks and plays very smoothly, and I admit to getting some shivers when I first heard the op...

Re: iPhone 5 ... I mean 4S w/ iOS 5

I can understand the lackluster opinion that the 4S doesn't come with many impressive features also. The bulk of the new content is content copied from Android (and iMessage is clearly a copy of BBM). Others, like the friend finder is just odd, as it would work much better as a cross platform app, ...
