This week, we follow new developments in the system-wide PS3 meltdown, which knocked PS3 gamers off the grid for most of Monday. Then, we find out that a New York school administrator coincidentally named "Dan Ackerman" is spying on kids' laptops. Does this mean Dan now officially has an evil doppelganger?

HD video on a Netbook is something of a misnomer, but as we demonstrate, equiped with the right hardware and the latest beta Flash player from Adobe, you can play and stream HD video to a Netbook (with varying degrees of success). Finally, we engage in a spoiler-filled discussion of Heavy Rain -- so hit mute when we warn you, if you haven't finished the game yet.
