Some Playstation 3 purchases

Thanks to my birthday a few weeks back, I had some gift cards to various retailers. I decided to put a couple of them towards stuff for my Playstation 3: Dualshock 3 Controller – Now I have two controllers, for whenever my wife wants to make a fool out of herself or when I have […]

Google Contact Sync for Mac
