ECA launches the Gamers for Health program

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2011

Why do so many people think that gamers are unhealthy? Because we sit there playing for hours, not getting any exercise and eating junk food? That’s probably it. Well, now the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) wants to help gamers get healthier.

It has created an initiative called Gamers for Health, which will provide ECA members and the gaming community with the tools and resources necessary to help incorporate healthy living into gamer lifestyles.

Apple stopping free iPhone 4 case program on September 30th

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on September 12th, 2010

Remember when “antennagate” turned into a big deal and Steve Jobs went out on stage and offered everyone a free case, as well as extending the normal 14-day return policy to 30-days? Good times. But, now it’s September 12th today, and the program is closing in 18 days.

While Apple is ending the overall program, which meant that owners of the iPhone 4 could get a free case, it also meant that Apple’s return policy was “upgraded” from 14-days to 30, and the traditional restocking fee of 10% was waived. But, those two features are going back to their old ways.

Sony opens "Official Licensed Product" program for PSP, PS2, PS3 peripheralsSony has a fancy new seal that they want to start slapping on new products. Specifically onto approved third-party peripherals for their game consoles. It could mean that we can expect better accessories or it may be a bunch of BS that does nothing but add a seal to products.

Before we can even guess what to expect, we have to wait and see who opts into the plan, and what nature of product they can get away with making. Hopefully it means better quality all around.

Warner Bros launches HD DVD to Blu-ray trade-in program

Posted in Blu-ray by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2009

Batman BeginsIf you recently jumped on the Blu-ray bandwagon, chances are you’ve got a bunch of DVDs that are pretty much useless now. Warner Bros. wants to help. The company is now offering a trade-in program called Red2Blu that allows people to trade in 25 Warner Bros. HD DVDs and have them replaced with Blu-ray versions.

The new program isn’t free though. It will cost you $4.95 per disc plus $6.95 for shipping on each DVD. Interestingly, you don’t have to send in the discs to the WB, you just need to send in the cover art for the HD DVD discs you want replaced.
