TUAW Tip: Character building with Mac OS X {TUAW.com}

Jan 21st 2010 9:06PM And for those less inclined towards superfluous trips to System Preferences, the built-in "Special Characters..." command in the Edit menu of most applications and its (common, but not quite universal) Command-Option-T keyboard shortcut are two of the even easier ways to display characters of all sorts.

The Queue: Crazy delicious gets my vote {WoW}

Aug 5th 2009 6:38PM You'll miss a LOT of major story bits in Warcraft III (and Frozen Throne) if you do the "whosyourdaddy" cheat right at the start of each map... there are several maps where story events are triggered by the player losing structures / units.

Feel free to use the god mode cheat if you want to get all the story bits without getting bogged down in gameplay, but don't be too eager to use it. This may sound backwards, but the more it looks like you're going to use at the start of a level, the more likely it is that you're supposed to for the story (and won't actually fail the level).

PSA: Advantageous auto-checks Amazon MP3 pricing from iTunes {Engadget}

Apr 7th 2009 10:47PM From http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2009/01/06itunes.html: "And beginning in April, based on what the music labels charge Apple, songs on iTunes will be available at one of three price points: 69 cents, 99 cents and $1.29, with most albums still priced at $9.99."

The choice of which price to use for a given song is determined by the labels, not Apple. Given what we've heard of the labels' negotiating history with Apple, Amazon, and other online music sellers, it's reasonable to assume that when iTunes charges more than Amazon for a given track, it's because the labels charged Apple more for it.

The major labels don't like that Apple earned a strong bargaining position against them (by actually building a product and service that customers wanted) and are using their position as monopoly rightsholders to undermine competition among online music stores. What happens if Amazon gets successful enough to try to negotiate pricing or terms changes from the labels? They'll just find another music store to prop up and give Amazon customers the shaft. What happens if some newcomer builds the Next Big Thing in music stores? Sorry, Amazon (or Apple, or Microsoft) is the labels' favored dog in this fight right now, so NextBigThing customers will have to pay a premium.

So, go on and buy from Amazon when you see a track that's cheaper there than on iTunes, but know that to do so isn't "sticking it to the man"... on the contrary, you're empowering the RIAA types who want more control over how you can buy music.

Ammo stacks in 1000, sells in 200 {WoW}

Mar 16th 2009 4:15PM Yes, you do get that bag slot back in 3.1: now you can equip, say, another 22 slot bag instead of your 28-slot quiver, carry the same amount of ammo you did before 3.1, and get 16 more general-purpose bag slots.

Yes, we're not getting rid of consumable ammo entirely this patch. Blizz told us of that before the PTR even launched. This isn't news.
