Mercenaries 2 game preview

I was a big fan of the first Mercenaries game back when it was out on PlayStation 2, and I'm still a fan of it. Gamespy has a Mercenaries 2: World in Flames on Xbox preview and it looks awesome. Check out the below video and picture. Read more about the game on Gamespy.

Watch a walkthrough video from Gamespy below. Nice graphics and action scenes.



Below is one of the pictures that Gamespy has of Mercenaries 2: World in Flames. View them all on Gamespy here.

Mozilla releases Firefox 3

It's here! Firefox 3 has been released and I downloaded my copy yesterday. You can download Firefox 3 at Mozilla's site. Here are some of the new features in Firefox 3:

User Experience. The enhancements to Firefox 3 provide the best possible browsing experience on the Web. The new Firefox 3 smart location bar, affectionately known as the "Awesome Bar," learns as people use it, adapting to user preferences and offering better fitting matches over time. The Firefox 3 Library archives browsing history, bookmarks, and tags, where they can be easily searched and organized. One-click bookmarking and tagging make it easy to remember, search and organize Web sites. The new full-page zoom displays any part of a Web page, up close and readable, in seconds.

Performance. Firefox 3 is built on top of the powerful new Gecko 1.9 platform, resulting in a safer, easier to use and more personal product. Firefox 3 now uses less memory while it’s running, and its redesigned page rendering and layout engine means users see Web pages two to three times faster than Firefox 2.

Security. Firefox 3 raises the bar for security. The new malware and phishing protection helps protect from viruses, worms, trojans and spyware to keep people safe on the Web. Firefox 3’s one-click site ID information allows users to verify that a site is what it claims to be. Mozilla’s open source process leverages the experience of thousands of security experts around the globe.

Are these real jobs on CareerBuilder.com?

A few days ago I was looking through a job search on careerbuilder.com and some of the results that came up looked fishy to me. I included a screenshot below of three jobs listed on the site that looked a little odd to me. Are these really scams from people trying to steal others' personal private information? Or are these actually legitimate jobs from legitimate real employers? Has anyone applied to jobs like these or been scammed by something like this? Let us all know please.

Fan runs on field and gets layed out

Now the video below is one of the reasons why you shouldn't run on the field during a baseball game. Another reason would be because you will spend the night in jail. Watch the drunken fan get layed out with a nice hit at Fenway Park.
