Training Days – The training ground makes a welcome return to FIFA 10, allowing players to get a handle on certain settings and concepts while fine-tuning tricky moves like set pieces. It was a nightmare trying to learn all this in-game, where some games you may not even get a decent set piece to practice, so having the chance to test it outside of game day—it's activated on the main screen's "arena mode"—is appreciated. … [Read more...] about FIFA 10 Review: 30-Yard Screamer

Music has the most robust feature set. Basically you just start playing what you want and it creates a playlist on the fly. You can add and remove stuff to it and move things around pretty easily. The cool thing is, though, that multiple phones can connect to the same Q, and everyone can add to the playlist. Tested on a phone and a tablet, the changes were reflected instantly. This could be fun for a party—you'd build a playlist beforehand, and then just add the whole thing to the queue. The orb's 32 LEDs light up in sync with the visualization on the screen, and you can change both to different themes. It's nice to watch YouTube videos on a big screen, but unfortunately, you can't create an on-the-fly playlist like you can with music. … [Read more...] about Google Nexus Q Review: Who Is This Orb For?
Claude (Richard Armitage) is a tall, almost handsome con-man who is, I think, meant to seem alluring to beautiful, rich, women, but I found him very boring and frankly did not understand why any of these wealthy, accomplished women would be into him. Conversely, he wasn’t quite unlikeable enough, either—I wasn’t rooting for his downfall, I was really just ambivalent about our tall, two-drinks-in, kind-of-hot Claude. Then there was Frazier, and I am surprised to say that I liked Corden in this role and only thought about Carpool Karaoke once while watching him. In fact, I wish there was more of Corden earlier on to build tension. He and Debbie clearly have a history, so it’s jarring to meet him at the end when there’s really no time to establish a strong connection. At least, unlike dear Claude, Frazier has a personality. … [Read more...] about ‘It’s by a Blogger’: Jezebel’s 10 Reviews
Last October, only weeks after Simmons’ comments, the NYPD closed a deal with bodycam maker Vievu: 5,ooo police cameras, plus Vievu’s proprietary cloud storage, for $6 million. The Wall Street Journal reports that the contract also included “options to significantly increase the total number of cameras before the end of the five-year term.” “Significant” is an understatement, with the contract seemingly shifting from 5,000 cameras to more than 20,000. … [Read more...] about NYPD Promises Greater Transparency by Buying Thousands of Body Cams With Mystery Funds
What this leaves us with is a game that plays better on the pitch, but isn't a better game, because as much as I love passing the ball around during a match, the thought of spending hours in the Pro Evo's bogged-down menu system just so I can see West Midlands Village take on Merseyside Red, only to be subjected to the same three lines of commentary over and over and over again, makes me wonder if it's worth it. … [Read more...] about Pro Evo
Address the other side of the story Finally, remember that there’s another side to your story. Positive reviews almost never get challenged, but they’re also most often ignored by future readers. Negative reviews draw the most attention, and while most people are smart enough to look over all reviews and omit the ones that are strange, particularly useless, or irrelevant to them, even negative reviews can be useful if you address why you think your experience unfolded the way it did, by putting yourself on the other side of the issue. Sometimes there’s no excuse for poor treatment, bad service or a horrific experience, but if you can show a little understanding, it goes a long way towards validating your review as an honest one—even if a future reader still decides to steer clear of the place. … [Read more...] about How to Write Genuinely Useful Reviews Online
