Run Your Own Auto Shop In Fix-It-Up Eighties: Meet Kate's Parents

When I first saw the video game title, I thought that the game was a dating simulation or something of that sort since the game was called Fix-It-Up Eighties: Meet Kate's Parents. I couldn't have been more wrong, albeit pleasantly, once I began playing. The game's concept couldn't have been farther from dating; it was all about cars and running an auto shop!

Quiet Dignity: Asus's Geforce GT520 Silent

Some pretty cool news from Asus this week, in the form of a new Nvidia card. The Nvidia GT520 Silent is a passively cooled graphics card, meaning that, as the name suggests, it's completely, well, silent. Not that graphics cards generally make a great deal of noise to begin with- or maybe I'm just desensitized to the sound of a computer's cooling system kicking in. I'd also venture to guess that the passive cooling system also means that the new piece of hardware ultimately consumes less power, as well.

Now, we've but one question left to answer- what can this new product do?

Keep Catching Them Fruits In The Angry Fruit Video Game

When I first heard of Angry Fruit, I thought that it might have something to do with Angry Birds. It's hard not to relate any other video game that begins with "Angry" to the best-selling avian-inspired game. Anyhow, I was wrong because it didn't have anything to do with Angry Birds. In fact, the game doesn't really have anything to do with anything angry at all.
