Blizzard is teaming up with PepsiCo this summer to bring World of WarCraft themed Mountain Dew to the market. If you ask me, this is going a bit too far. You can read more in this WoWInsider story.
This is a first as far as I know. Wired is reporting that Google has added an “undo” feature to GMail. It essentially gives you a five to ten second window after sending a message to stop the message from actually going through to the intended recipient. Very cool!
Talk about good “product placement”, har har har.
Video for “Bloodmeat” can be seen here.
This article on iTWire is rather astonishing. Apparently, Charlie Miller, a security researcher, has hacked an up-to-date Macbook running an up-to-date version of Safari today in under 10 seconds at the annual hacking convention, PWN2OWN.
It begs the question: what is necessary and what is just plain insanity? I just hope Charlie Miller doesn’t have any intent on my rooting box any time soon. God knows Windows XP SP2 isn’t the most secure OS in the world.
After Jon Stewart‘s complete domination of Jim Cramer on his show The Daily Show, Jeff Zucker (CEO of NBC Universal) comes to Cramer’s aid. According to this article on The Hollywood Reporter, Zucker calls Stewart’s criticism “incredibly unfair to CNBC and the business media in general.”
I think this is complete crap. Stewart clearly had his shit straight during the interview with Cramer from last week. He even used some of Cramer’s own clips against him [in a classic ownage fashion] when he tried to get out of what Stewart was stating.
After a sad turn of events, actor Natasha Richardson has passed away. She was taken off of life support yesterday around 1:30 PM EST. Natasha had been put on life support due to an epidural hematoma that she substained after falling while skiing on Monday in Montreal.
A representative of Liam Neeson‘s released this statement today:
“Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.â€
You may remember Natasha from movies such as The Parent Trap, Maid in Manhattan or Gothic.
She leaves behind her husband, Liam Neeson, and two sons MicheÃ¡l Richard Antonio (13) and Daniel Jack (12).
You can’t have sex with Satan in Bakersfield, California without a condom. (Damn, and I wanted to ride the hog of darkness bareback!)
There are nine more U.S. laws as stupid as that one right here.
I don’t understand Jason Statham. He does great movies like The Bank Job and then he turns around and does absolutely terrible movies in streaks – like Death Race and now Transporter 3. Seriously? A third Transporter movie? How many times do we have to watch the same goddamn thing?
Aside from Natalya Rudakova, who plays the role of the mysterious female character who turns out to be the package that Statham is supposed to deliver (big fucking surprise), this movie has almost no redeeming qualities. And they couldn’t even let the girl stay hot throughout the movie. They had to throw in some random scene where she pisses on the floor in a gas station. (Yeah, you read that right.)
And yes, I do realize that I gave a huge spoiler about the movie just now with the comment about Rudakova being the package. But you shouldn’t be mad at me because you don’t need to waste your time watching this terrible piece of overly hyped bullshit, anyway.
Mr. Blue: I just realized that the intro to my video on VIP looks like the intro to a Star Wars movie or something.
Mr. Pink: So many light saber jokes to be made…
