Some of the best time pieces in the world are quite simple and are just basic. The chronograph watches are some of the time keeping pieces that are quite common to both men and women. The pieces do offer style as well as magnificent time keeping ability. The time keeping pieces are associated with chronometers which is a measure of accuracy in time, of which the watches achieve by being made by some of the best watch manufacturers in the world. The watches though general are mostly considered sporty and thus fit for the outdoor and the adventurous at heart.
A chronograph watch is a time piece that stands out from the rest by offering various ways to measure and keep time, though the pieces do offer one more function other than keeping time. The chronograph watches might be the best watches in the world for their vast applicability and functionality, since they offer multiple recording measurements, but the essence of the time piece is accurately deliver of time in any situation. This means that the running of the watch is not to be affected by any external or internal factors thus the many time keeping functionalities. The basic watch can be easily identified by three sub dials that are fixed in the main dial of the watch.
Though the chronograph watches are mostly considered sporty, they can be used in all situations depending on the design that one has chosen. The chronograph watch can be used in official as well casual capacities. The materials that are used in making the watches are also not limited to one form; it’s quite easy to find a watch that has leather, titanium and stainless steel for different purposes. The longevity and performance of the watch should be the main concern, prior to style.

On today’s episode of The 404 Podcast, we’ll also tell you about a first-person shooter game coming out of Australia that does away with firearms and instead puts you in the eyes of a photojournalist embedded in a war zone.
The game is called Warco, which stands for “war correspondent,” and the object of the game is to film conflicts and create a story from start to finish alongside other journalists covering the same story.
It’s up to you to choose which side should be framed as evil and good since there’s no obvious protagonist, but we’re doubtful that mainstream gamers are willing to forego a gun for a camera, especially since part of the game involves editing the footage you shot earlier.
Next, we’ll chat about a gang that used 3D printers to produce their own ATM skimmers. For those unaware, skimmers consist of a plastic card acceptance slot that fits over the ATM machine and can read the data stored on any card’s magnetic stripe, while a pinhole camera next to the ATM key pad records the associating code.
Making clever use of a 3D printer in action, a group of four men from South Texas are currently serving time in Houston for stealing over $400,000 between August 2009 and June of this year. It’s unclear whether the men built their own 3D printer or bought one online, but KrebsonSecurity.com speculates that a high end device costing anywhere between $10,000 and $20,000 would do the job. Don’t get any ideas.
We’ve got a handful of voice mails to play after the break, and Mickey Mouse pays us another visit, so if you want to be heard on the show, phone us up at 1-866-404-CNET and tell us what’s up!

Britney Spears may not sing at MTV’s Video Music Awards, but Christina Aguilera will.
Aguilera will join other top-name performers, including the Jonas Brothers, T.I., Pink, and Kid Rock, host Russell Brand announced Thursday.
Speaking to reporters on the backlot of the Paramount Studios in Hollywood, Brand bantered with Aguilera, who emerged from a limousine, and rapper T.I., who shimmied down a fire escape on a street made to look like New York.
"It’s going to be, actually, bloody exciting," Brand said of the awards show, which will celebrate its 25th year on Sunday.
Brand, an English comedian largely unknown to U.S. audiences, displayed his brand of humor that can best be described with one British word: cheeky.
During Thursday’s presentation, he described the Jonas Brothers as “God’s favorite virgins” and racily commented on Aguilera’s physique.
Aguilera touted her upcoming appearance as her first televised performance since giving birth to son Max in January.
The comedian also poked fun at himself, saying that bulldozers were working overtime to keep his wild mane of hair in check.
Brand laced his remarks “bloody” and “‘ell” and a few words that are unprintable. But he also kept the buzz going about the VMAs, an awards show known for creating infamous pop culture moments. Almost as a footnote, he noted that Kanye West has signed on to close the show with a performance.
West has apparently mended his volatile relationship with MTV.
Last year, he famously promised not to return to the VMAs during a tirade he threw after losing in all five categories he was nominated for. The year before, he crashed the stage at the MTV Europe Awards after not winning for best video.
Brand, for his part, seems willing to deliver what MTV has described as a show that will be heavy on music and mischief.
Grabbing a megaphone, Brand led reporters through the Paramount backlot, delivering them at a soundstage where Kid Rock exploded on stage - in a pair of white slippers - for a rehearsal.
He also praised Spears, who will open the show, but won’t be performing. She could leave the backlot with more than she arrives with on Sunday. Spears has been nominated for three VMAs, including for video of the year for “Piece of Me.”
And a strong performance by her could erase some of the sting from her much ballyhooed performance of “Gimme More” at last year’s show.
There was no mention Thursday of Michael Jackson, who promoters have tried to lure to the show.
But the show already seems chock-full of two of the elements producers have promised: music and mayhem.

""She closed around him, a hot, wet fist, and he felt her tighten, stretching like a bow beneath…"
“The Missouri Review is, quite simply, one of the best literary journals in the world.” —Robert Olen Butler
"She closed around him, a hot, wet fist, and he felt her tighten, stretching like a bow beneath him…"
The scene wraps up with a climax that “rips” through Zack like “madness” and pleasure that “geysered through her, flooding senses, swamping reason.”
Whew. That was exhaustingly terrible. Am I wrong? I mean, I understand that I am biased in a way because reading this graphic description of sex as a twelve-year-old was mortifying, but re-reading it even now makes me cringe. I can’t help but wonder about her use of language here. Her dramatization of sex is not appealing- it’s laughable. There is a way of using language to intensify an action, event, or emotion but Roberts missed the mark.
