TorrentFreak writes that Watching Porn Online More Acceptable Than Piracy. A survey conducted by the New Zealand based research firm UMR Research found that nearly half of the respondents think that it’s morally okay to watch porn on the Internet.

ABC News has an article on the possibility Men Being More Evolved. Women may think of men as primitive, but new research indicates that the Y chromosome — the thing that makes a man male — is evolving far faster than the rest of the human genetic code. Certainly one to keep in mind when you next have an argument with your wife. Just don't blame me if you have to sleep on the couch. ;)

Online Education has got a cool Break Down of Gaming Statistics with some interesting results. Apparently the average age of gamers is now 32 years old.

Ever wondered how much it costs to make an average video game? Game Pro has an article on Game production costs in 2009. Interactive entertainment media industry analyst Wanda Meloni is joining the 2009 financial weigh-in party. In her breakdown of the ups and downs of the year, she sheds some light on just how expensive it is to make games.

Wired has an interesting piece called, Obsessed With the Internet: A Tale From China. The Chinese news media was filled with terrifying stories of WOW-crazed kids dropping dead or killing their parents, and Deng Fei and Zhou Juan worried that they might lose their only son to a technological demon they barely understood. So they were lured in by the camp’s pledge to end his “bad behavior.”

In another story from China, the BBC has more on Internet Security. Apparently, Security experts say Google cyber-attack was routine. "Human-rights activists are the biggest target," said Mr Hypponen. "Everyone from Freedom for Tibet to Falun Gong supporters and those involved in Liberation of Taiwan are hit."

Lastly a reminder to buy OCAU polo shirts. Remember it's limited edition and in a few years you'll be the cool cat at meets when you're styling one of these bad boys. There are also stubby holders for those of you who prefer to attend meets in your mankinis.
