Tiny USB-powered desk vacuum totally doesn't suck

50°
360w ago - Forgive the pun, but we feel that's the best way to describe this particular gadget: for only $19.99, a "USB desk vacuum" can be yours, and you can say goodbye to those photo-perfect bits of grit that always seem to accumulate next to your laptop.

More than likely it'll break after five minutes, just like every other unamusing office gift you'll receive this holiday season. Coming to a USB-powered trash can near you!
 

Schools warned off Microsoft deal

50°
362w ago - The UK computer agency Becta is advising schools not to sign licensing agreements with Microsoft because of alleged anti-competitive practices. The government agency has complained to the Office of Fair Trading.

It says talks with Microsoft have not resolved "fundamental concerns" about academic licensing and about Office 2007 and the Vista operating system.

Microsoft says it wants as many people as possible to benefit from its technology at the best possible price.

Information and communication technology (ICT) is an essential subject in schools, which have to spend huge sums on installing, upgrading and maintaining equipment and software.
 

Bad box office sales blamed on Halo 3

50°
363w ago - It's been the worst October for North American movie ticket sales in years, and industry executives are pointing the finger at Master Chief.

Total cinema ticket sales in North America for the weekend of October 5 were a relatively meager $80 million--the worst results for an October weekend since 1999, reports Advertising Age.

Industry executives are wagging the finger at blockbuster game Halo 3, which was released in the US on September 26, made $170 million in its first day on sale, and at the last count, had made its creators Bungie and Microsoft more than $300 million.

But Bungie's gain is apparently the movie theatres' loss. Mike Hickey, an analyst at Janco Partners, commented, "The audience on this game is the 18-to-34 demographic, similar to what you'd see in cinemas. This could last for several weeks."

The Advertising Age article continues to warn that another box office drought may be ahead, as the release of Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV looms in the distance--current ETA the first quarter of 2008.
