Daily Scribbles: Holiday Hijinks



 So today, we decorated the tree and the house, I traded gifts with a couple of friends, and I accidentally wiped my laptop's hard drive. All in all, a pretty good day, I suppose.

Happy Holidays, everyone. :D

Hell of a Deal: Steam's Epic Christmas Sale



If you've been following the Twitter account, you'll know Steam's holding a huge sale on just about its whole inventory. I actually mentioned it last year, where I purchased several great games. Once again, they're holding their sale, and you owe it to yourself to buy something from there, or at least for your friends. Mirror's Edge for $4.99, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. for $2 (both for today, at least), The Unreal Deal Pack for $11, and even Champions Online for about $10 if you wanted to start playing (hint, hint, viewers). Oh, and Peggle is included in the sales, a perfect game for non-gamers or the casual type.

Video of the Week: 5-Year Old Owning DDR

I don't know how the Japanese do it. Seriously, it's like being able to play video games expertly is built into their DNA code. Why can't I play like that?

New Tech: Traffic Lights w/ Progress Bars

Spotted on Infosthetics.com.



It's a real shame, but I've yet to get my driver's license. I keep putting it off and I can't get practice. Eventually...
I'd like for these to be on the road when I get on the road. They're called Eko Lights, traffic lights with a progress bar surrounding the red stop light, telling drivers when the light will change. You can actually prep your car for a long light wait for once, improving gas mileage, reducing emissions, and supposedly reducing stress from said long light as a result. Though I suppose stoplight dragsters would love these, and a comment made on the page does make a good point:
Drivers may prepare to take off at great speed by anticipating the green and hit unwary pedestrians chancing a "no walk" sign.
Then again, if you're actually driving right, this shouldn't be a problem, as well as if you're obeying the "look both ways" rule as a pedestrian. There's more info on the Eko Light from their designers at relogik.com (who have several other nice product designs, if you browse a bit).
