I’ve always had a thing for Lego. When I was a kid, I lived and breathed the blocks, playing with them every day until eventually, I grew up and sold them all to buy a Game Boy. About 5 years ago, I decided to get back into them a bit as a relaxation technique, and now I find myself picking up a set every few months.
Recently, Lego reinvented themselves by adding a video game lineup to the mix. For the past few years they’ve put out games such as Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones, all based on the popular properties.

Most video games designed today are more about flash and pretty looks than they are about function. Sure, they can be fun to play, but when updates need to be installed every hour to fix issues and you can’t run it without a maxed-out Mac Pro, it becomes an exercise in futility.

Do you still buy and use CD’s? Have you moved your collection of CD’s into your iTunes library? If you have, then surely you have realized what a time consuming task it is to tag and update all of the songs and albums that you have with the correct information.
When I first transferred all my CD’s to my iTunes library, I had to manually label everything and put the right information in every album that I transferred to my computer. It took me a good week from start to finish.
