Tech 2.0 for Tuesday, November 13, 2012
Internet anti-virus pioneer John McAfee is wanted for questioning in a murder investigation in Belize. This is video of McAfee from an interview in 1989. Police in the Central American country want to talk to McAfee about the death of Gregory Faull. Faull lived alone near McAfee. McAfee left his namesake Internet security firm in 1994 and has not been affiliated with the firm since then. A housekeeper discovered Faull's body in a hallway of his home with a gunshot wound to the back of his head. Authorities investigating the homicide are speaking to another person as they pursue multiple leads. A laptop computer and cell phone are missing from Faull's home. Police do not have a motive in the deadly shooting.
The video game industry got a much needed bonus today with the release of the newest "Call of Duty" video game. The newest "Call of Duty" sequel, "Black Ops 2," hit stores overnight. Industry experts expect the game to set a record for opening day sales. The overall record for the most sales revenue by a video game on its opening day is held by "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3," which debuted to $400 million last year. Xbox and PS3 versions of the game sell for just under $60.
"Halo 4" is a huge hit with gamers. In the first 24 hours of its release, the game racked up sales of more than 220 million dollars around the world. Think about it this way. Last Tuesday's opening beat the record for the biggest one-day opening in U-S box office history, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2." "Halo 4" was developed exclusively for Microsoft's Xbox 360.

Well, with no shave November, Halo 4, and COD this month, I'm predicting pregnancy will be at a all time low.
Love how the black ops 2 servers won't let me connect online. #FIXITNOW
