YouTube :), Asking Google Answers about Google is forbidden., I am half way through the campaign (co-op with my son).I also played about a dozen online multiplayer matches.I love it, it's Halo 2, just better, much better, and that is exactly what I wanted.They did not mess with the fundamentals of the game, they just improved the graphics, finished the story, and added a lot of new cool toys for multiplayer (equipment/vehicles/weapons/accessories). The graphic textures are crisp clear on 1920,1080p and way better than Halo 2, they are not ultra realistic like Gears of War or BioShock, but they are good graphics, eye candy in every sense. My only qualm is why is it rated M? I want my 12-year old son to play it with me, and my wife is making me feel guilty about it due to the M rating.The game actually does not have any gruesome violence (ala Gears of War chain-saw action), just artistic blood splatter ala the movie 300, but without any limbs being cut off.Anyway, I think it is ok for pre-teens to play it, and trust me, they will.My son enjoyed "The Forge" a lot, it is like his virtual playground where he can make explosive physics experiments or drop tanks on top of his friends, a very welcome addition.The mobile bases on the Sandtrap map are hilarious and really change the game dynamics..The game is also revolutionary in being Web 2.0 like, that is you can easily share screenshots and video clips with your friends.The replay theater is super cool, lets you replay the action from any angle and pause/slowmo to learn tricks from other folks you were playing with. That's all I can say for now, need to wrap up some work so that I can run back home to finish the fight Posted in Category: Work - amr @ 11:18 am | link | | bloglines | technorati | comments (1) Web 1.0: Companies publish content that people consume (e.g. CNN)Web 2.0: People publish content that other people can consume, companies build platforms that let people publish content for other people (e.g. Flickr, YouTube, Adsense, Wikipedia, Blogger, MySpace, RSS, Digg)Web 3.0: People build applications that other people can interact with, companies build platforms that let people publish services by leveraging the associations between people or special content (e.g. FaceBook, Google Maps, My Yahoo!)Related Posts: Google's Privacy Argument is Flawed, Will Panama Deliver for Yahoo?, , , ,I lead a team at yahoo called PIE (short for Product Intelligence Engineering), our job is to deliver the systems and the insights that make yahoo products better for our users.It is a very exciting group to be working for since you will be constantly challenged with hard problems and you will always be working on new things.We are also tasked with building one of the largest BI datamarts in the world (if not the largest).The team is growing and we currently have about 20 open positions, we need two types of folks:Deep Analytics: Problem Solving, Analytical Thinking, basic Statistics, SQL, HTTP/HTML basics, Programming experience, Regular Expressions, and a good product/business sense (Microstrategy knowledge is a plus).

I saw this guy drop off the bubble shield and wait inside it with a shotgun, as soon as somebody steps in he drops them. I also like the man canon, and the 3rd person view while carrying large weapons.I don't like that weapon pickup and reload is not X any more, I keep doing that by mistake, similarly I don't like that Y is not what you use for vehicle/turret entry (both are the right bumper now).That will take some time to get used to.The graphics are much crisper than Halo 2, but still not what I expected, I expected it to look better than this, especially after the nice trailers they had released.Only the water looks good, but other textures seem low res to me, not what I expect from a next gen console.Aaaa Aaaa,Notice that the URL in the email is stanford.facebook.com, this tricked me into believing they were affiliated with Stanford, so when I saw that my name was wrong in the email (it is says "Aaaa Aaaa"), I went to the site and completed the registration to fix my name.Don't get me wrong, Facebook is a very nice service and I love their UI, but last time I checked SPAM was illegal in the US, so they gotta pay up.For the benefit of readers of my blog whom do not know, I maintain a link blog on Yahoo MyWeb to which I post interesting links that I come across with a short snippet of commentary (sometimes the commentary is just a key paragraph from within the article, other times it is me commenting). I add links spanning multiple topics, but specifically tech, search, games, and virtual machines.Posted in Category: Fun - amr @ 3:46 am | link | | bloglines | technorati | comments (9) I just came back about an hour ago from watching the 300 movie with David Gerster.I was very eager to see the movie since I am a sucker for the leadership/loyalty/macho theme.I also like the gore, which I know is sick, but hey, I would never kill a chicken in real life (though if you mess with one of my kids, I would probably kill you ).The ending was not well done IMHO, a smart leader should have calculated the risks better than that, some times you have to kneel to stand up again later, but I do not want to spoil the movie for you.I don't chat about politics much in my blog, but this movie should not be shown in the middle east (Iraq specifically), because frankly, they think they are the Spartans, and the US is the invading Persians with their power and technological might, wanting all to kneel in front of them.Posted in Category: Work - amr @ 2:47 am | link | | bloglines | technorati | comments (1) My previous post was about why I switched from Netflix to Blockbuster.Eric Colson was a coworker of mine at Yahoo for the last 5 years, but a couple of months ago he left and joined Netflix . Below is an account of which Yahoo vs Google services he now uses (text that follows is what Eric sent to me with very minor edits):So, in response to you switching form Netflix to BlockBuster, I would post the following … but I don't have a blog

Below is an account of which Yahoo vs Google services he now uses (text that follows is what Eric sent to me with very minor edits):So, in response to you switching form Netflix to BlockBuster, I would post the following … but I don't have a blog Here's a summary of changes I have made since leaving yahoo.None of it was deliberate …etc.I just started venturing out of Yahoo now that i don't work there and found that I prefer some others.Take it as customer feedback Email: no change… Sticking with Yahoo due to my account.I do have a gmail account, but only use it occasionally.I did have to turn off the Y! beta because it broke too much! Maps/Local: switched to Google "most of the time".Its better performance, and "usually" better index of local businesses.However, I do like Yahoo's "send to phone" feature (not sure if G has the equivalent). Web Search - hybrid.Its about 50-50 now. I use Google as a default for researching topics simply because its faster .. the performance is hands-down much better than Y!. I do like Google's clean page better as well. I think the algo relevancy is about the same between the two. When I am interested in paid search listings (commercial queries), I use Google just because it has mind-share for advertisers. Yahoo is better for spelling suggestions (which i need a lot) I still use yahoo search a lot because I use the yahoo toolbar a lot (see toolbar section) I also use Yahoo search a lot because of the open shortcuts.I even use it to get to my Google services . Really- i have a shortcut for "!gdocs" to get me to my Google Document repository Toolbar - i have both, but use yahoo more so that i can leverage my open shortcuts Bookmarks/Social Search - I still use Y! myweb … can't beat it Documents (Word processing and spreadsheets) - I use Google docs.Yahoo has no equivalent.I did replace some of my yahoo "notepad" docs with Google docs and rarely use Y! briefcase now Notepad - despite, the fact that I moved *some* of the longer notes to Google docs, i still use yahoo notepad.This is just because it so simple.Google has a notepad widget, but for whatever reason, i don't like. Finance - Yahoo (love the new beta and streaming quotes) News - neither Y! nor G … bloglines (thanks amr for telling me about it) Shopping - yahoo … hate frugal … but still don't like Y! Shopping either.It always seems to fail me when I have a simple task for comparison shopping … or to sort a list of items …etc. Travel - abandoned Y! Travel for sidestep (tried it because Rob Solomon went there.. ended up liking it) Browser … I switched to Firefox.This has nothing to do with Y! or G, but just could not take IE crashing anymore. Movie Rentals … Netflix of course… i have a free account with 8 movies out at once.
