Merry Dukemas! Gog.com giving away Duke Nukem 3D for the holidays.Merry Dukemas! Gog.com giving away Duke Nukem 3D for the holidays.

I have fond memories of playing Duke Nukem 3D in college as it was my first real networked game with my fellow nerd-type college friends that we could all partake in. Mind you this was way before your traditional online multiplayer we know today, before the Halos and Call of Duties, and way before kids screaming obscenities at other adults through Xbox headsets were the norm. I'm surprised to see that the game still holds up well jaggy pixels and all. Hey, you can even snag a Mac port of the game - hurry offer ends while supplies last (you have until December 14 and supplies won't run out).

Microsoft decides to go with AT&T for their upcoming Windows 7 phone.Microsoft decides to go with AT&T for their upcoming Windows 7 phone.

Interesting move considering how much AT&T is bashed for their poor and spotty coverage as it relates to all things iPhone. Although, I have to admit I've never had a real issue with AT&T in terms of service here in the NYC suburbs. Maybe I have a magical account.

Project Natal to be available for your Xbox 360 next holiday season.Project Natal to be available for your Xbox 360 next holiday season.

Controller-free gaming will be yours for the taking sometime before the year is out. There is still no word on how much this thing will cost but you can take comfort in knowing that it will work with all current Xbox 360 systems. Joy.

NORAD will be tracking Santa's journey once again.NORAD will be tracking Santa's journey once again.

The agency says it uses radar to first track Santa as he lifts off from the North Pole. After liftoff, satellites with infrared sensors that detect heat can pick up the infrared signature given off by Rudolph’s nose.

Barnes & Noble offers up consolation gift for those who won't receive their Nook by Christmas.Barnes & Noble offers up consolation gift for those who won't receive their Nook by Christmas.

He guesses the company will miss shipment on about 2% to 4% of the devices, adding up to $100,000 to $200,000 worth of gift certificates. That’s store credits and not cash, so Barnes & Noble will no doubt recoup some of that investment.

'Sampler' in my opinion, is the wrong word in this case as Apple is essentially giving away TWENTY tracks of free holiday music. Head on over to iTunes and snatch this up while it's still available. You'll get to hear Weezer do a rocking rendition of 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas'.
