Despite once being considered an online innovator, Prince has more recently made a name for himself for being unafraid to confront the infringement of his work. Now, the artist has filed a hefty $ 22 million lawsuit against 22 Facebook and Blogger users for working in concert to steal his content.

Goodnight Sweet Prince: Sony Stops Making PS2′s

goodnight-sweet-prince.jpg

I know, I thought they’d already stopped years ago too. Shows how much we know! “Speak for yourself.” I WILL SPEAK FOR BOTH OF US. Yes waiter, we’re ready to order. I will have the lobster, and my friend here WILL HAVE NOTHING AND LIKE IT — MWAHAHAHAHA! Sony has officially stopped manufacturing Playstation 2′s.

After over 150 million units sold, Sony has finally put the PlayStation 2 out to pasture.

Even now, as we bid the old bird farewell, the PS2 can hold its proverbial head high. Over 1.5 billion copies of nearly 11,000 titles were sold over the last 12 years. The 70 million PS3 sales to date pale in comparison the the numbers put up by the PS2. In fact, by the numbers, the PS2 is — make that was — the most successful console of all time.

Well how about that! “About what?” I dunno, I was just eating the apple sauce pack that came in my Lunchable. It was weird because the first bite was good but the rest of it sucked — what’s up with that? “It’s a conspiracy.” Illuminati?! “Afraid so.” I’ll draft a letter to my state rep!

Dear brobro,

I know we’ve never met, and I can’t remember if I voted for you or the other moron (although I probably wrote in Harry Potter), but this goes way deeper than partisanship — this is about…what was this about? Do you get to judge the state beauty pageant? You more of an ass or boobs man? Because I like them both.

Thanks to Thel200ster, PH, Michael, Red Foxx15 and alan, who encourage you all to attend the memorial service this weekend.

Prince of Persia source code freed from floppies, posted online

Prince of Persia source code freed from floppies, posted online

You wouldn’t think it would take more than two weeks to extract some source code from a pile of 3.5-inch floppies and post it online, but getting files from 1989 to play nice with a MacBook Air is no simple feat. That’s why we’re so appreciative of Jordan Mechner, who put the time and effort into freeing his creation, Prince of Persia, from its magnetic prison. If you want to try and build the platforming classic for your own system, hit up the source link. Or, just wait for someone else to do it for you — we’re sure it wont take long for some friendly binary formats to hit the web.

Prince of Persia source code freed from floppies, posted online originally appeared on Engadget on Tue, 17 Apr 2012 12:09:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

Prince declares the internet “over”


In an rare interview granted to The Daily Mirror published earlier today, Prince declares:

The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it. The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.

I guess we can’t blame the man for this off-hand nullification of everything that is modern and good, and which in all likelihood have made his career longer and more lucrative. Like other divas led into the intellectual oubliette of narcissism, he has no concept of the world, because his world is himself.

As for his music, there is no doubt it is popular. His new album, 20TEN, is the occasion for the interview, and the occasion for the quote above was discussion of his releasing his music exclusively via the Mirror. His “ongoing battles against internet abuses,” as the interviewer politely puts it, take the usual form of having unofficial YouTube videos taken down and not distributing his music via digital means. Very effective, I’m sure.

I won’t comment further on this (admittedly talented) man’s mystifying backwardness. I’ll only say that deliberately alienating his existing fan base and preventing a new generation from accessing his music natively, as it were, are tactics certain to be detrimental to his legacy — if not his immediate record sales.

Keyfree Yale Doors Mix Old-Style and New-Tech

Yale – the famous lock-maker, not the university – will now sell you an entire door instead of just the lock which keeps it closed. The design of these fiberglass doors is traditional, but the security features inside will make getting into your house more like getting into your car.

The “Keyfree” Yale Doors come with a wireless lock unit that can be operated by PIN (multiple codes are supported) or by using the wireless key-fob, just like you would with your car. If anybody tinkers with the lock and enters the wrong PIN, an 80dB alarm will screech a warning and rattle the nerves of your neighbors.

This is all great news for paranoid England, where the doors are available (£715, or $1000, plus another $284 or $400 for the lock), and will help keep the hoodie-wearing, alcohol-addicted teenagers from your lushly-carpeted interiors. Better for the English market, though, is the range of old-fashioned styles. The English, as a nation, hate anything new or modern (just ask Prince Charles). These doors will be just the thing to keep those faux-Tudor semi-detached homes safe from both burglars and from the neighbors’ scorn.

[Yale. Thanks, Nick!]
