Browsing the always-interesting http://www.We-Make-Money-Not-Art.com weblog, we happened upon this link to a really interesting project coming out of the University of Southern California Interactive Media Division called MobZombies, which puts you into the real world with a display that allows you to see the masses of zombies coming for your brains.

He brings up just about all of the relevant counterpoints to this month's mass hysteria and political jockeying. It's really a must-read.

Bethesda, maker of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, has confirmed that their upcoming 360 title will utilize the Xbox 360 hard drive. They also confirm, however, that the game will function on the $300 version of the system, as well, merely pointing out that it would be better to own the system with a hard drive. This begs the question: What's going to be the difference?
