Hacked before it is even released! Freaky..!! The highly anticipated release of the Grand Theft Auto IV, is said to be on the internet .. and the game has already been hacked and available online. 6.32 Gigabyte file was said to be posted on major torrent sites.

It is expected that this game will sell 6 million copies at $59.99 a pop for the standard version and $30 more for a special edition. Making sales predicted at $400 million. I wonder if it is really that good.. this new one.. that they are predicting so much in sales..??? This game is only for the Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox platforms.

I was looking for one . .because i may be going to get an operation done, so was thinking ahead.. how i can use my notebook without hurting myself after surgery.

How comfy is that..?? i really don’t know.. i still can’t figure it out yet. One thing good about the curve is to keep all the wires under it.. but how comfy is it to type..?? now one has gotta wonder. You can purchase it from Logitech directly or buy it from Amazon.
