So today marks the start of The State of California vs. The Entertainment Merchants Association and Entertainment Software Association case at Supreme Court. Essentially it looks to see if the sale of violent video games to minors should be regulated.
Over the past week Kotaku have hosted ‘PC Gaming Week’ where I presume they tried to shake off the image of being an overly console centric blog and try to win back their fleeing PC audience from Rockpapershotgun.
As they said in their opening article for this week;
One might think that Kotaku Tower is a place bereft of computers, or at least gaming on computers, judging by how infrequently we write about them. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
At least they’re aware of the reputation they have. Of course how far they go to show how ‘further from the truth’ this reputation is proves to be lacking.
So I’m catching up on the Internet and apparently the rumour mill is firing on the speculation that Apple might use some of its substantial equity to pick up Facebook.

So last month I got my phone and after a few weeks of use I knocked up my first ‘recommended apps’ list. Well now it’s time for Round Two. I’ve played with a few more apps since, found alternatives to others, and removed a handful too. As always you can see my current apps over at AppBrain
