Halo: Reach Ending Unofficially Spoiled

With Halo: Reach's leak comes the inevitable wave of 'ending' videos with spoilers, and these (sadly) appear to be bona fide

If you don't want to know how Halo: Reach ends, better unplug your internet box, pronto, because pirates are uploading the game's finale.

Type 'halo reach ending' into YouTube's search box and up pop a couple videos the YouTube copyright police have yet to banish. One bills itself as "the highest quality REAL ending" to the game. Another claims to be from a live stream. Both were uploaded today, August 23.

I've had a peek at them myself, and -- for reasons I can't disclose without spoiling the ending -- I can say they're the real deal.

What motivates some to broadcast unethical behavior is anyone's guess. Claims to "first"? Sure. And status. And this.

A group of hackers recently purloined a press review copy of the game from Microsoft's Xbox Live Marketplace servers, bragged they'd done so but wouldn't release it to file sharing sites, then (apparently) went ahead and released it anyway.

You know the drill -- forewarned is forearmed. Watch where you surf (or pull from). Self-styled story saboteurs are probably annotating these videos and preparing to pounce on Facebook pages, blogs, Twitter feeds, and message boards even now.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
