Hello again folks, I am back with another batch of news for you. Today we have a new moster of a case from Corsair as well as what is I believe the first look at Resident Evil 6 that we have had. In the other section there is a very interesting read on how technology was used to help during the recent tragic events at the Boston Marathon. I think it goes without saying that our hearts go out to everyone involved in the tragic attacks and we are gladdened to see how Americans have united once again in the wake of another horrific tragedy.

Today I woke up at 7. In the A.M. I didn't even know they made an A.M. of the 7. In my foggy sleep deprived haze I put this list of glorious reviews from around the web for you guys to look at. It is begining to look like new lines of SSDs are being released as there was a ton of those to be had. Most interesting in my eyes is the look at the new Blackberry device. I have never been a fan of them, but am interested in seeing what they put out to compete with what is a very competitive market. See you all again very soon, hopefully not in one of those pesky A.M. hours.
Blizzard today announced their purchase of IPL, IGN's pro league. Along with that they mentioned that they will not be continuing the league, rather they will have the IPL staff join their existing eSports team. Am I the only one that is very disappointed in this? I don't follow pro gaming all of the time but having such a big league basically vanish is disappointing. I doubt anything that Blizzard does with it in the future will involve a variety of games as well.
For those of you who have been to our events, sometimes I like to embarrass some of the event staff by doing giveaways that require giving Chad and some of the other hugs or high fives. This weekend Chad came down and we filmed an application for his fiesta movement application. He asked what kind of giveaway he should do and I suggested hugs. On our forums under the following link (http://lanoc.org/forum/7-contests/26859-qchads-hugsq-giveaway) you will find all of the details about what he is planning on doing. The short version of this is for those who support him (if he wins) he will drive to visit you and give you a hug in the car that they would be providing him. Check it out and support one of our LAN staff members in this contest, I'm sure he will appreciate it!
