Halo Reach Noble Map Pack Release Date/Time

I know we’re all playing way too much Halo since Reach has been released, but the next thing that is going to feed that craving is the release of the Halo Reach Noble Map Pack (maybe Nobel Map Pack). The official release date of the Noble Map Pack is November 30, 2010, but what time will they be released? 12am has come and gone, so what is the official release time of the Halo Reach Noble Map Pack? Well, we’re about to tell you.

The highly anticipated Halo Reach Noble Map Pack will be released on November 30th, 2010 at 6am PST.

That’s the best educated guess that you’ll find on the internet. Hopefully we’re within 3 hours (+/- 12 hours).

Let me know once you get your Noble Map Pack so I can log on and pwn you!!!

Pre-Order Halo Reach for Delivery on Launch Day

Do you want your copy of Halo Reach to arrive at your house on the day it comes out without having to wait in any long lines? You won’t even have to camp out at the store to get your copy. This is one of the best deals that you’ll find for this game. If you pre-order Halo Reach from Amazon.com, you’ll also receive a $20 credit that can be use toward any purchase in the video games category at Amazon.com. This would be perfect to buy Microsoft points with. That way when the new Halo Reach maps come out, you’ll be all set with points and you can pick them up immediately!

I can’t guarantee this, but this is how I ordered my iPhone and I actually received it before launch day. I wonder if ordering Halo Reach early from Amazon could allow you to receive your copy a day or two early? Try it and let me know!

iPhone OS 4.0 Official Release Date, Features and iPhone Multitasking

It’s official… iPhone users will finally be granted the long awaited feature of multitasking. This has got to be the single most requested item and the single item that keeps most BlackBerry users from switching to the “all powerful” iPhone. The thing that sucks about the OS 4.0 update is that 3G users will not be fully supported – OS 4.0 will install, but features such as multitasking will not work. There was no mention of the 1st generation iPhone (2G) which may not be supported at all – still waiting on word from Apple.

Here are some of the other features of the iPhone firmware 4.0 update:

  • Multitasking / Background Apps
  • iAd
  • iBooks
  • Unified Inbox
  • New Drag & Drop UI

Will the summer release date of the iPhone OS 4.0 make you wait to jailbreak your iPhone if you haven’t jailbroken it yet? Which new iPhone OS 4.0 features are you most excited about.

And finally, the thing you all want to know about is the official release date of the iPhone 4.0 OS… I don’t have the official date, but I’ve always been a good predictor, I’m going Tuesday, June 8th as the official date. Just a guess, Apple will have to prove me wrong.

WordPress 2.7 Release Postponed? WordPress 2.7 Still in Beta Form

A couple weeks ago, it was announced that the WordPress developers were looking for icon designers who’d be able to help create icons for the November 10th release date of WordPress 2.7. It’s now mid-day on November 11th, and WordPress 2.7 has yet to be released.

Any guesses as to the actual release date of WordPress 2.7? Will they let it out this week, or is it going to be postponed for another couple weeks to make it absolutely perfect? I say release it now… there’s always room for 2.7.1 and 2.7.2, right?
