It’s being reported by several media outlets that Stephen Norrington, the guy who handled the film adaptations of Blade and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, has been tapped to do a re-work of a cult classic: The Crow.
Remember that movie? The one with Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, who died in a freak accident during filming? Yeah. The one from 1994. You’re feeling old, too, huh?
This is either going to be decent or really fucking bad. I don’t think it will even come close to the original, in any case. I’m honestly kind of worried that it’s going to be just as shitty as the dozen or so sequels that they tried to roll out with to profit on the bandwagon of goth kids who loved the original simply because the guy really died.
The booty that some girls carry… good lord.
I never thought I’d say the words, “I wish I were that doorframe.”
MXLogic is a company that provides managed web and email security services for businesses. To be honest, I could care less about that. What I do care about is their Threat Center, which is in my opinion one of the best sources for information about current spam and virus threats on the Internet.
They also have a pretty good blog-style web security news section.
No, this is not a reference to an action movie starring Nicholas Cage and John Travolta. This shit is real – and it is an absolutely amazing advance in modern science and medical technology.
According to this CNN article, a team of eight surgeons from the Cleveland Clinic performed the world’s first near-total face transplant. There are no details on the patient but there is a reference to the world’s first partial face transplant, which was carried out in France in 2005 on a 38 year old woman who was attacked by a dog.
An Australian court has ruled that a mortgage lender can use the social networking hub Facebook to notify a couple that they have lost their home, according to this article from ABC News.
This sets a disturbing precedent for people who use social networking websites. I don’t think we’re far from seeing this here in the United States.
Wired is reporting that a team of reverse engineers (I refuse to call them hackers – that’s not what they are) has succeeded in unlocking the iPhone 3G. This is good news for those of you who want an iPhone but don’t want to be stuck with a piece-of-shit AT&T service plan.
I’m guessing that Apple is already working on countermeasures.
In addition to the rumors that are currently flying about a new Mac Mini, there are also reports out there that Apple may unveil a new Mac netbook of some kind at this year’s Macworld. There’s a bit of detail to support the claim in this CNET report.
I really doubt that their price points will be realistic but I’m sure that this will make Apple fans who are jealous of the ASUS netbooks happy.
