September 20, 2009 – This show has been Refused Classification.

While Australia has a lot of freedoms, we still have some things kept in the dark for us. One example of such a thing is video games that are deemed to be too violent, too sexual, or not appropriate for people under the age of 18.

Sadly in Australia, we lack a fair ratings system. While movies can be classified in an age bracket like R18+ X, games cannot. So with EA’s new game “Left 4 Dead 2” being banned this week, we thought it was high time that we got out The Gadget Grill certified skillet and throw the issue well and truly in the fire.

We’ll also take a look at a new portable sound device from Altec Lansing. A warning, however, as not even one of the Gadget Grill chefs was ready for the surprising amount of volume this little sucker puts out.

All that plus cool new dual CPU motherboards, how blind people soon will be able to read SMS’s just like the rest of us, the Apple vs. Google divide widens, and a whole heap more.


Fancy something that we played as part of our music on The Grill this week? Well, it’s all below waiting for you to… you know… Google it. And stuff.

  1. As Tall As Lions – In Case Of Rapture (from “You Can’t Take It With You”)
  2. Jimi Hendrix – Little Wind (from “Experience Hendrix”)
  3. Blue Mitchell – Soul Village (from “Blue Mitchell”)
  4. Dianne Reeves – One For My Baby (from “Good Night, And Good Luck”)
  5. Dave Matthews Band – All Along The Watchtower (from “Live at Red Rocks 8.15.95”)

See you next week in The Gadget Grill!
