Letter from Cat

54d ago ... Dear members of N4G, 11x2, AnimeShinbun, FilmWatch and Techspy; I have decided that my time with HAVAmedia has come to an end, and so April will be my last month with all of you. Christopher will be assuming many of my old duties. This is not a decision made in haste, but one that I think is best for HAVA, my family, and me. Simply, I'm needed elsewhere. :) All the best, Cat

FYI, No April's Fools Articles

56d ago ... The title says it all. No round ups, no pranks, nothing. Let's keep the discussions on a serious note.

The answer to this problem seems to revolve around sensors...sensors everywhere. Kicking off CES 2015 was Boo-Keun Yoon the CEO of Samsung. During the...
