Links of the Day

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Expansion Trailer - At Blizzcon '09 today, the next expansion of the most popular MMORPG in the world is getting a new expansion that will include cap level increase to 85, new quests, dungeons, instances and more including transforming existing land and characters into something new that will probably lead to re-exploring the land. More details of the release can be found here.

Pallet Shipped for One Power Cord - The picture to the left is what HP chose to ship a 10 foot PC power cord in. Those cords could almost be tossed in a letter size padded envelope and even that might be too big. It’s pretty amazing that someone went through this level of trouble to ship such a small item.

Avatar Teaser Trailer - The new teaser trailer for James Cameron first movie since Titanic. The result is visually appealing but doesn't really tell you anything about the story or characters.

Barney Frank Nails An Idiot - This is how you handle the ignorant healthcare protestors whose knowledge of the issue essentially extends to repeating whatever Limbaugh, Hannity, or Beck said in the last few days. This one for instance apparently doesn't have any grasp of history whatsoever and Frank basically admits that talking to her is a waste of time as nothing will be accomplished anyway.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Trailer - The next game in the Castlevania series will be an action game in the vein of God of War if this trailer is indication. The voice cast is phenomenal, the graphics look good and hopefully the game play and story will be too.
