Gateway One vs the Apple iMac

It looks like Gateway is sending a shot across the bow of Apple’s iMac, releasing their own version of a full all-in-one desktop called Gateway One. The price ranges from $1,300-$1,800, so it falls in the middle of the iMac‘s price range. The only problem seems to be that the screen is only 19 inches, compared to the iMac, which ranges from 20-24 inches. The big advantage to the Gateway One is that you can swap out the hard drives when they start to fill up (even though they come with 320-500 gb drives).

I still think the iMac is a better deal for home users, since they still don’t have to think about viruses and malware at this point, but it’s good to see Gateway competing.

Thanks need to go to Engadget for the article(s) with all the deets and areacode212 over at flickr for the original pic (which I edited a bit since I didn’t know any of the people in the original pic)

Apple G4 Mailbox

Do you hate your old boring mailbox? Do punk kids pummel  your mailbox when you aren’t home? Want to show the entire neighborhood how big of a geek you have become?

Why not take your old G4 Apple tower and replace that old, boring mailbox (a great excuse to buy a new computer too!). Thanks Geekologie for the post.

Master Chief is All Famous and Regal

Those hard at work scouring the news over at Geekologie uncovered the best geek prank since the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Mooninite scandal here and I must say, you MIT gamers are dedicated, bravo.

Future generations will now remember Master Chief for building the Harvard campus and destroying the aliens that had initially overrun the campus all those many years ago, Microsoft created the original Halo storyline in hopes of retelling this heroic story to today’s youth. For a more detailed telling of this story, just watch Alien vs Predator Requiem when it comes out, until then, check out the HD trailer or just watch it here.
