My Special Router – The CloakBox

31 Aug 2009  8 Comments

I used Hotspot shield regularly during the last year or two, to access Hulu and any other website that needed me to be in the US. But it had its drawbacks, it’s public, so not much for security there, a bit slow and it can be used only on a PC or Mac.


I really wanted something similar for my Xbox 360 and PS3, so that I can download all the stuff that I want without restrictions, even certain game add-ons can’t be downloaded.

That way you can preview the post and decided whether to expand it or not. Its a very convenient way to check out all those sites you regularly read without the fuss of multiple tabs.

Take120 Downloads

30 Aug 2009  No Comments

Untitled is a Kuwait-based website with a torrent style/file-sharing set up. The main difference is you buy tokens or tickets for each movie, show, song, piece of hardware, etc.. And you cannot upload your own files to the site. You ask why should i pay if i can download a torrent for free? Fair enough. But also why order from or if you can get the same things without a charge? To start, these are all verified files at take120, and also you will be guaranteed to download at the full speed of your internet connection. So like those other sites (6alabat & taw9eel), this is more of a convenience issue. More answers to all your frequently asked questions are available at the site, with a full library of its files. Check it out here.

This video is about an Egyptian Mig-21 pilot who during the war of October 1973 was struggling to get away from an Israeli jet trying to shoot him down, so he performs a maneuver that is scientifically impossible to do according to the laws of physics. Great video with a recreation of the events from the History Channel.

XBox 360 To Get A 250Gb HDD?

28 Aug 2009  No Comments

Right after Sony’s PS3 Slim’s announcement, Microsoft hit back with taking $100 of the XBox Elite’s price, putting it in the same ballpark as the PS3 both now cost $299.

Amazons Xbox 360 250GB.jpg

Amazon Germany listed a new SKU that that is bundled with 2 wireless controllers, Forza motor sport 3 and a 250GB hard drive for $400. Microsoft currently sells 120GB maximum. That is big news for people like me that have the original 20GB hard drive and are holding out for an upgrade. I’ve been using the “install on hard drive” function on the 360 and love it, but the 20GB doesn’t hold much.

Amazon Germany took of the webpage but they have history of leaking new consoles before their announcement.

It looks like Nokia realized that they screwed up with the N97, and so they are releasing a revamped version that runs the Maemo 5 OS, which is a Linux variant that should have “true PC-like multitasking”.
