The previously banned-in-Australia game Aliens vs Predator is apparently due to be released in uncensored form thanks to a re-classification as MA15+. We are particularly proud that the game will be released in its original entirety, with no content altered or removed whatsoever. This is a big win for Australian gamers. We applaud the Classification Review Board on making a decision that clearly considers the context of the game, and is in line with the modern expectations of reasonable Australians.

The Australian Federal Police have launched a ThinkUKnow YouTube channel, which is "Think U Know", not "Think UK now". “The ThinkUKnow channel is a great initiative that raises awareness of how to keep young people safe online,” Mr O’Connor said. “The launch of this channel highlights the Australian Government’s commitment to protecting children from all kinds of harm and provides information about the ThinkUKnow program to people across Australia and the globe.”

Darkness spotted a cool multi-touch Dungeons & Dragons video. If there is seriously a use for Microsoft's crazy-ass Surfacescapes tech besides Dungeons & Dragons, I have no idea what it might be. Admittedly, I'm not a major tech guy, but the only times I ever hear about the Surface is when it's debuting some new D&D functionality, which I think is both hilarious and awesome.

Gizmodo meanwhile have an article on the physics of space battles. But suppose we get out there, go terraform Mars, and the Martian colonists actually revolt. Or suppose we encounter hostile aliens. How would space combat actually go?

TestFreaks compared eight network attached storage devices. Today I’ve gathered eight different NAS boxes for comparison. They range from four drive boxes down to single drive ones. The brands I’ve collected are a sampling from Seagate, Thecus, Synology and QNAP. These companies are the biggest and most popular NAS box providers out there, and the ones I have represent low end to high end versions for both home or personal use up to higher end feature packed boxes.
