Video Games And Advertising – Happy Bedfellows

Game developers are starting to break ranks, moving mainstream and even using their technology and skills in the service of marketing. San Francisco’s Total Entertainment Network, formerly a hardcore shooter site, brought its company from what many call near-death to economic vitality by providing what it terms family games to 12 portals, including Netscape and Excite. “We saw a sweet spot between the family or recreational games and the hardcore,” says Erik Lundberg, TEN’s vice president of sales. The company is expanding its ad model from selling product placements on the backs of playing cards and interstitials between games, to pushing customized games such as product-oriented crosswords.

Games like Atlantica are adding revenue with in-game promotions.

Hawaii – Still All About Beauty

My first vacation to Hawaii was in the planning stages at the time and my excitement increased, with the awareness that in addition to the beautiful beaches there were interesting things going on in the Islands. We were not disappointed. In fact, in our moments away from viewing glorious sights and relaxing on the sand, my wife and I found lively cultural developments as well as a new awareness of the importance of cooperative efforts and a professional approach to development.

Siggraph Highlights The Importance Of 3D

Aside from the professional culture of high-powered computer workstations and whiz-bang 3-D graphics that have, in recent years, dominated the space at the semi-annual Siggraph trade show, another culture exists, one whose roots date back to the ’70s where not just technologists but scientists, mathematicians, digital artists and teachers came together to exchange ideas and co-mingle in a vat of cyberculture. “It’s the closest thing I have to a tribe,” says David Warner, founder of the Center for Really Neat Research (CRNR) at Syracuse University.

For him, Siggraph is more than a workstation show. Rather, it’s a place to keep the cyberculture alive. “I’ve been coming to Siggraph for many years, and last year I noticed that there was a profound lack of human-focused technology.” By this, Mr. Warner means technologies for people with special needs, such as the

Choosing The Best RAID Level

brlThere are many RAID levels one may choose from, they all have their good and bad sides, and it all depends on what the user needs. It is very important to know what to look in RAID, and how much the repair can cost, because RAID 10 recovery may not be as convenient as Raid 5 recovery.

The first thing to consider is the performance one needs, since some features may be more important for certain business areas than others. In addition, some RAID choices have more capacity, so that is another thing to look for. Moreover, some business cannot afford for their system to be down, so they choose more available types. Just like with any other purchase, cost matters, but it does not mean that expensive RAID must be the best one. On the other hand, the repair …
