If you dig Quentin Tarantino flicks, an eight flick, 10-disc Blu-ray boxed set is on the method that will undoubtedly pique your interest. Lionsgate and Miramax are working together on the Tarantino XX set, which catches 20 years of the filmmaker’s career and includes Reservoir Dogs, Real Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Eliminate Bill Vol. 1, Eliminate Expense Vol. 2, Death Evidence and Inglourious Basterds. Furthermore, there’s special collectible product packaging and artwork (shown after the break, along with the press release and full listing of specifications) and the two added discs are filled with 5 hours of all new perk interviews, retrospectives and the like. It appears extremely unlikely to respond to the secret of exactly what was in Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase, but it will be offered November 20th with an MSRP of $ 119.99, although Amazon is presently detailing it at $ 83.97.

Question by : Do Macbook start up discs only work for the Macbook they came with?
I just bought a used Macbook and i am looking to restore the computer to factory settings, however the seller unfortuneately did not include the restore/startup discs. My brother however has a Macbook Pro with start-up discs so i am wondering, will these be compatible with my Macbook? Or do i have to somehow find Macbook startup discs, or just live with the other persons profile etc…?

most work with a series the os is the same just the drivers might not be included
so it’s best to get the right disks to ensure your system works correctly

Now that all of the Harry Potter movies have been released, Warner Bros. has seen fit to slide them together in one truly epic set. Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection spans 31 discs including the theatrical version of each movie, extended cuts of the first two flicks, 3D versions of the last two, Ultraviolet digital copies and several bonus discs with ten hours of new to disc bonus content and 5 hours of never before seen extras. Of course, we should also mention the incredibly detailed box it all comes in, seen in the CG video above. Of course, you can’t always have everything, and some fans are upset about what this collection doesn’t include — extended versions of the last six movies. Those still interested can preorder the $ 499 MSRP set (currently selling for $ 349 on Amazon) for delivery September 7th, and get an early preview of one of the special features embedded after the break.

Digitizing your analog archives? Vinyl to CD / MP3 / iPod turntables might do well enough for your old 45s, but the folks at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory prefer to listen to their old beats by taking pictures of them. More specifically, restoration specialists are using a system called IRENE/3D to snap high resolution images of damaged media. The cracked discs — often made of wax on brass or composition board — are then repaired digitally, letting researchers play the digitized discs with an emulated stylus. So far, the team has recovered a handful of 125 year old recordings from a team in Alexander Graham Bell’s Volta laboratory. The all digital system gives researchers a hands-off way to recover audio from relic recordings without running the risk of damaging them in the process — and no, they probably won’t let you use it to listen to that beat up copy of the White Album you’ve had in your closet since eighth grade. Hit the source link to hear what they’ve recovered.

When I was growing up, one of my all-time favorite toys was my Nerf dart blaster. Every summer, the other neighborhood kids and I would take off on our bikes, blasters strapped to our backs, and have a full-on foam war. It’s been a solid decade since I’ve raised my not-so-dangerous weapon, but the other night something magical happened. I got to go to Nerf’s unveiling of its Vortex line of blasters, and realized that these things aren’t just for kids.
There are four new models in the Vortex line, and while they look pretty similar to older Nerf blasters, these sexy beasts have something totally new up their magazine sleeve: discs. Yep, little green discs fly out of these bad boys, and if you saw it happen, you totally wouldn’t believe that it doesn’t hurt to get hit.
This is the bad mamma-jamma of the Vortex family. It’s the first fully automatic, clip-fed disc blaster in the Vortex line. It’s removable clip can hold up to 20 discs at a time, and comes with an extra clip that attaches to the back of the gun for quick reloading. The Nitron shoots up to 50 feet, and is capable of rapid-fire shooting, although that really equals out to about a disc per second. Still impressive, but don’t get the idea that this is some sort of Nerf machine gun. It requires six C batteries which are not included, and will retail for $ 39.99.
The Praxis is designed for long-range shooting, and should come in handy for anyone training to be a sniper. It comes with a removable shoulder stock, just in case your arms are a bit too short. Unlike the Nitron, the Praxis requires a good pump before each shot, and comes with a clip that carries up to ten discs at a time. The Praxis will go for $ 24.99.
The Vigilon is Nerf’s mid-sized blaster, and is just right for smaller kids. It holds up to five discs at a time, and comes with a rapid-reload built-in disc clip. When you press a little button on the sides the drop-down clip is released and with the discs, it’s really easy to just grab five at a time and shove them in there. Pop it back into place and you’re ready to go. The Vigilon will cost $ 15.99.
Meet Nerf’s baby blaster: the Proton. This little devil shoots one disc at a time and comes with three discs. It’s super easy to reload, and is light enough for a little kid to run around with it all day without feeling weighed down. The Proton will go for the relatively low price of $ 9.99.
All four of the new Vortex models will be available in retail stores throughout the nation on September, 10, as well as HasbroToyShop.com. Check out our hands-on gallery just past the break.
If we’re looking at sales figures of 3.5 million units in the first year for a new laptop, smartphone, or camera, then we might be impressed. But 3D Blu-ray discs? When half were included in the box with a Blu-ray player? Man, that’s gotta sting. Those numbers are based on an IHS Screen Digest estimate, tallying US sales beginning in June of 2010 and ending last month. Still, if those results are even in the ballpark of official (unreleased) numbers from BD distributors, then things really aren’t looking up for 3D. With fewer than 100 titles even available on Blu-ray, however, we’re not really surprised that discs aren’t exactly flying off the shelves. Obviously, as a growing number of movies are filmed in 3D we’ll see BD title availability increase as well, but with the technology’s lackluster beginnings over the last year and no sign that consumers are ready to spend more to embrace that new dimension, 3D may continue its slow crawl toward the mainstream for some time to come.

LA Noire, one of the biggest games on the table this year, will be shipping for Microsoft’s system on three separate discs, and while they assure us it’s “hassle-free,” it’s still three discs. The PS3 version will fit on one 25GB Blu-ray disc. Now, I’m not saying one version is going to be better than the other (or all I know, the PS3 version has higher load times or more compressed textures), but this is definitely a score for the PS3′s larger format.
Maybe I’ll wait for the PC version, which will come on no discs at all.
