Ohh the battle of the game stations. This has been going on for sometime. Its pretty clear that Sony, and their PlayStation have figured out this world. Microsoft’s XBox is really, the best thing that Microsoft makes, and it has its moments. The Play Station is for sure the better system. Sony went for “Blue Ray” from day one, whereas, Microsoft tried unsuccessfully with “HDDVD”. Also if you are an online gamer Sony welcomes you with open arms, Microsoft sees this as another opportunity to get at your wallet, you pay different values for a Silver or Gold membership to “XBox Live”. This takes me into a section of the new video game market that really angers me. The “Online Marketplace” everywhere in games they want you to keep paying for these games. From more in game content, to charges just to play the game with others online. Its starting to make we wonders if videos games are to played hanging out with some mates. Or only alone, with some virtual mates online. So, if your looking at getting a new game system, do some research into what games you want, and go from there.
Damn you Diefenbaker. I promise to do a more in depth post about Diefenbaker and the cancelling of the Avro Arrow program. That said, were hear on a different note today. So, as you may know I have a little bit of an obsession with the military industrial complexes of our world. Although, its not really fair to put the Avro Arrow up against a post modern fighter, It would do a much better job at protecting Canadian sovereignty then any modern fighter ever could. Now the F-35 and the JXX, Well lets just say that I have a feeling that the Peoples Liberation Army might just have the upper hand here. I don’t think we know so little about this plane because its harmless. China has dreamed of making a fifth generation strike fighter on home soil. The JXX is the completion of this dream. These super fighter have the Avro Arrow to thank, the idea of fly by wire, and mach speeds. It was our country that lead this dream of flight. If only our Canadian ideals of peace, and security through respect, could have been realized over the skies of the world.
