Update on the invites *EDIT 16:42* - PlayStation®Home
The first batch of invites was targetted at a percentage of people who had
downloaded something from the Store. Its nothing to do with number of posts
in the forums. The next batch is largely based around active gamers, ie those
who have logged into a SCEE hosted game in the last couple of months.
For those who dont get an invite Open Beta will be here before Christmas.

Fox Sets Midseason Schedule, Whedon Fans Shed Tear
Mr. Whedon's latest series, the Elisha Dushku-starring spy-thriller Dollhouse,
has been stranded on Friday nights at 9 p.m. If that time slot sounds familiar
to you, that's probably because it's where shows generally go to die and where
Mr. Whedon saw his last Fox venture, Firefly, meet an early grave.

I finished Resistance 2 yesterday. I'm not one who usually finishes single player story driven games. I have Orangebox collection and haven't finished any of them. I bought COD4 for the online play, I've never played single player. So I really enjoyed the Resistance story and gameplay. For some strange reason people are making threads complaining about the graphics, but I thought they were amazing. There is a whole bunch of online gameplay options and I've only tried a few of them.

I picked up a copy of Resistance 2 today. I played the demo of the first
one, but I typically play FP-Shooters on my PC. I participated in the R2
beta and couldn't get into it, but I tried it 2-3 more times and got hooked in.
I realized I had never bought a first person shooter for a console.

Sarah Palin 'did not know Africa was a continent', say aides

John McCain's verdict on Sarah Palin: more trouble than a pitbull | guardian.co.uk
The Republican presidential candidate has been asking friends:
what is the difference between Sarah Palin and a pitbull?
The friendly canine eventually lets go, is the McCain punchline.

Highlights: Newsweek's Special Election Project | Newsweek.com
NEWSWEEK has also learned that Palin's shopping spree at high-end
department stores was more extensive than previously reported.

McCain himself rarely spoke to Palin during the campaign, and aides
kept him in the dark about the details of her spending on clothes because
they were sure he would be offended.

One night, Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter went to her hotel room to brief her.
After a minute, Palin sailed into the room wearing nothing but a towel,
with another on her wet hair. She told them to chat with her laconic husband,
Todd. "I'll be just a minute," she said.
