New How-To: iTunes Smart Playlists

I’ve just had a new how-to go live over at Mac|Life; this one’s about getting the most from iTunes’ smart playlists. As an added bonus for fans of late-’80s Cleveland cover bands, I’ve included a special treat in the first screen shot. See if you can find it.

Oh, but if you do, drop a comment there, not here, if you wouldn’t mind. It makes my editors happy. And I do like to keep my editors happy.

New Review: Guitar Hero World Tour

Oh man do I love music games.

For example, did you know that I was the first person ever to write about the original Guitar Hero? It’s true — I was down at RedOctane doing a completely unrelated story and they asked if I wanted to see the game.

I did. And I got to write about it before anyone else in the world. I still think that’s pretty neat.

Anyway, that’s not what I came here to talk about. I came to talk about my review of Guitar Hero World Tour, which has just gone up at Green Pixels. Head on over and check it out, won’t you?

New How-to: Stream Media to Your Wii

OK, look, I just want you to know that I’m intentionally avoiding any childish juxtapositions of the words “stream” and “Wii.” You’re welcome.

But what I wanted you to know is that Green Pixels has put up another one of my how-tos, this one about streaming media from a PC to a Wii. Yes, it’s possible! Yes, it’s even fairly easy. But no, it’s not as intuitive as using either a 360 or PS3. And no, I won’t buy you a pony.

I’m not even sure why you’d ask that.

New How-to: Stream Media to Your Xbox 360

Green Pixels has posted what is essentially Part Two of a three-part series on streaming media from a PC to a game console. This week’s victim: the 360. Have yourself a look, maybe you’ll learn something!

New How-to: Stream Media to Your PS3

Oh hey, Green Pixels has just put up my how-to on streaming media from a PC to a PS3. It’s a surprisingly simple process; see if you don’t agree. Questions? Comments? Leave them in the coments over at GP.

New Feature: 10 Crucial Rock Band Downloads

Oh lookie, Green Pixels has just put up my 10 Crucial Rock Band Downloads feature. This was one of those where you look around in the middle of doing the research and think, “I can’t believe I get paid to do this.”

Let’s fight about my choices. But over there, not here.

New Review: Grand Theft Auto IV

Perhaps you’ve heard of it?

My GTA4 review is now live over at Green Pixels. Spoiler alert: It’s really good. Oh, you don’t think so? Well, why don’t you drop a note in the review’s comments to that effect.
