Sorry Netflix, There’s A New Girl In Town

20121220-211553.jpgSo I’ve been a subscriber of Netflix for a few years now and have done both the streaming and mail DVDs. It’s not that I’ve found anything I hate about it, but this redbox deal sounds pretty great. redbox and Verizon have teamed up to offer a Netflix like service for around the same price…$8 a month (Netflix is about this price for streaming only btw).

Touch. Tap. Flick. Control.

microsoft-arc-touch-mouseBefore you get your hopes up, no, this isn’t part two of the boob grabbing we talked about here. This is about a mouse. Yes, a mouse…that soon to be outdated piece of equipment you use with your computer. Personally, I avoid using trackpads as much as possible. I picked this little bundle of fun up for a good price. Check out my thoughts after the break.

Love/Hate Relationship with “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview”

JobsSo last night I watched The Lost Interview with Steve Jobs…and holy shit is this thing amazing/depressing. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’ll give you some background on the movie….and since I don’t feel like typing it out, here’s the movie info from Rotten Tomatoes.

“In 1995, during the making of his TV series Triumph of the Nerds about the birth of the PC, Bob Cringely did a memorable hour-long interview with Steve Jobs. It was 10 years since Jobs had left Apple following a bruising struggle with John Sculley, the CEO he had brought into the company. At the time of the interview Jobs was running NeXT, the niche computer company he had founded after leaving Apple. During the interview, Jobs was at his charismatic best – witty, outspoken, visionary. In the end, only a part of the interview was used in the series and the rest was thought lost. But recently a VHS copy was found in the series director’s garage. Now, cleaned up with modern technology, and put into context by Cringely, the entire interview will be screened in Landmark Theatres.”

Facebook Handing Out Money to Interns, FML’s Going Through Everyone’s Head

Mashable – … Facebook interns are not only paid, but are also earning higher wages than most tenured teachers. According to recent statistics each intern is earning an average of $5,600/month or what equates $67,200 a year.

Of course I was busy drinking piss warm beer that we got from corner stores, paying some old man an extra 5 bucks to buy it for us, and these kids were at home studying to make sure I would want to go get shit faced because their salary is 30k higher than the average US income.

 

Google Maps is Back on the iPhone

20121213-074351.jpg

People in major cities with metro transportation can rejoice again! In late night heroics, Google came to the recuse to us iPhone users that HATE ‘Maps’ and brought back Google Maps to iOS in app form (was technically available via mobile web). With a perfect rating and over 5000 users reviewing, people are clearly ecstatic about the return of this app (yes, I know that most rated out if spite).

BestBuy gives away free iPads, customers complain

Yahoo- A BestBuy customer reported that they ordered 1 iPad, but opened the box to reveal that a total of 5 were in the box. So like any moron, the customer calls up BestBuy to explain that they ordered 1 iPad, not 5. BestBuy decided that it is the holiday season, and told the customer that the iPads should be given “to people in need”.

Not understanding between right and wrong has nothing to do with being free

1 Hour, For 10 Years of Your Time

 

Look, a founding member sleeping at work… exactly what anyone watching these “1 Second” videos would do

Kickstarter – If someone made me sit down and watch 1 second of everyday of their life for the last 10 years, I would take their phone in the bathroom with me while I drop the biggest deuce the city has seen. I understand the importance of memories, and while I normally value every picture and video I take, I disagree that someone should take a “1 second” video. This “1 second” video that the app developers are speaking about is called a fucking picture, and if I wanted to remember the last 10 years of my life, I wouldn’t rely on an app to do it.
