Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Night Vision Goggles Review »


Odds are, if you're a gamer, you spent this past weekend destroying your friends in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. The $60 you spent were well worth it, but do you sometimes think to yourself, "Should I have spent a little more money and gotten the Prestige Edition which features, among other things, the cool looking night vision goggles?" For those of you pondering this important question, AOTS Correspondent Blair Herter has your answer. Check out his review of the unique gaming peripheral and find out if you should rush to your local game retailer and trade in your copy for the whole kit and caboodle.

Note: Blair states that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition includes a code to download Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It does not. The code included only allows you to download the original Call of Duty.

Actual Great Moments in De-Evolution: Dyson Bladeless Fan

When you want something from the future to work now, look no further than Dyson. Yeah, that vacuum company that somehow built a bag-less and suction-less hoover or something like that.

The other day, Dyson announced their latest invention, the Air Multiplier Fan that somehow through magic (or Air Multiplier technology and physics), generates a strong breeze without any visible blades.

As high tech and futuristic as this new weird fan can be, here's where it takes a step back in evolution. This thing costs over $300. THREE HUNDRED BUCKS! Plus shipping and handling!

Dyson, when will you learn? Technological development is supposed to help humanity move forward with cool lifestyle changes, not break the bank! If you're offering innovative uses of science for domestic purposes, then try to think with a more logical brain (or wallet). Try to create something that can help the mass population. Build something accessible to all. We're in the middle of a recession right now. The last thing people need right now is an overpriced fan.

Speaking of which, does anyone have $300 I can borrow? I really want one of these.

Intern's Corner: Nikole Strikes Back

Posted September 22, 2009 - By Nikole Zivalich

Intern's Corner: Nikole Strikes BackA few months ago the G4tv.com summer interns got to share with you some information about themselves in a little segment called Intern’s Corner. Due to the hectic demands of the summer the segment got lost in the abyss that is Attack of the Blog, but with the new season comes a new set of interns. Intern’s Corner is back, and this time it’s personal.

This fall there are two of us rocking your internets, Donell Tucker and myself, Nikole Zivalich. I’m sure you’re asking yourself who are these interns? What are there stories? Why are they qualified to work for thee G4?
 
How ‘bout we start with a little about my background. I’m the oldest, shortest, and nerdiest of three kids. I’ve been playing video games since I was old enough to hold a controller. I had several boy cousins that would always want to go outside and play. I opted to stay inside in favor of the SNES. In true nerd form, I learned from the young age of four that I feared the sun, being social and physical activity.

Detroit Police Tech: Dive Team »


Today, special correspondent Weston Scott got wet and dirty with the Detroit Police Department's Underwater Recovery Team to learn how to track down and retrieve a car from the Detroit River. With a storm on the horizon, the task was harder than it looked.

Tomorrow is the final installment of our series featuring the Detroit PD, and Weston ventures out with their Bomb Squad. Watch Attack of the Show as he gets up close and personal with their specialized gear, learns how to use a bomb disrupter and navigate a bomb robot.

And what kind of bomb squad story is it without an explosion? Don't worry, because Weston Scott will be detonating three different types of bombs without losing his fingers (hopefully), all tomorrow, September 17th, starting at 7:00pm EST.

If you missed out on Weston's time with the Detroit SWAT team, check out the video after the jump.
