Silverstone SG12 Micro-ATX Chassis

The Silverstone SG12 micro-ATX chassis is on the test bench today at eTeknix. This looks like it might be a good case for a HTPC, LAN box or Steam Machine.

Silverstone is one of the most recognisable chassis brands on the market, which comes as no surprise given that they seem to launch more products per year than virtually any other manufacturer. The Sugo series of chassis has long been a success, something that’s no doubt obvious given that the model we have at our disposal today is the twelfth iteration, the Sugo SG12.


Video Game Kickstarter Disappears With Over $30,000

It looks as though another video game Kickstarter disappeared with all the money. I guess the first warning sign was the fact that there were no names or contact info listed for the people behind the campaign. frown

In December of 2013, gamers paid over $30,000 to fund a Kickstarter for a game called Mansion Lord. A month later, Mansion Lord’s creators opened up a PayPal account to accept even more money. And in August of 2014, after announcing that the PayPal funding round was over, they simply disappeared.

Twitter Plans To Go Beyond Its 140-Character Limit

I could be wrong, but don't apps like Twitlonger, JumboTweet and others already do this?

Twitter is building a new product that will allow users to share tweets that are longer than the company’s 140-character limit, according to multiple people familiar with the company’s plans. It’s unclear what the product will look like, but sources say it would enable Twitter users to publish long-form content to the service.

Microsoft Corp and its Chinese partner in an Xbox game console venture have been fined by China's commerce ministry for breaching antitrust rules but escaped serious punishment after it deemed they did not hamper free market competition.

While not a very good robot voice, at least this guy will be ready to serve his new masters when the robot uprising takes place.

A city Health Department worker who has previously been disciplined for answering an IT help-desk phone in his best android impression faces a 30-day suspension for again bucking his supervisors' orders and greeting callers as a robot.
