Microsoft Pulls Out

Yay for sexual innuendo!
To be a little more serious, Microsoft has finally given up on the Yahoo! deal. Of course, this isn’t a total loss, especially for Microsoft. You see, the next time stock plunges at Y! there will be a bigger step to have a MS+Y! deal and the next time, it actually might go through.
As usual, Balmer made the letter public and wow, these people can really write some good letters!

Iron Man

When I saw that they were making Iron Man, my first reaction was “Fuck yeah!”  My second reaction was, “Dear God, I hope they don’t screw this sucker up like they did to the Hulk!!!”  Luckily, my first reaction was what continued to stick throughout the movie (and millions of previews before the movie came out).
Usually when a comic book company turns their very nice comic book series the movie is either decent or horrible. Most of the time the graphics are decent, if not worse than a two-year-old on a Mac (see 2003 Blockbuster disaster “Hulk”). The acting is also half-ass most the time, if not worse than an ass like in a certain movie starring a crime fighting hero based on a winged nocturnal creature in a dark city called Gotham. If you didn’t get the hint: Batman. Iron Man, though, was fucking amazing.
Now I don’t mean, HOLY SHIT C.G.I.!!!111!!!ELEVEN, I mean this movie kicked ass in every single way. First off, the action was there, and it stayed there. Within at least the first five minutes of the movie, you were ready for more intense violence. Plus, the lines weren’t shitty. Iron Man didn’t go around saying bullshit “hero” lines and actually knew his shit. Also, the two main chicks were actually pretty hot ;). Oh yeah, the graphics were still good.
Here is a hint: When you and watch the movie, make sure you sit through ALL the credits, there is something neat at the end.

Skynet is soon to come…

Over at the HP Labs, researchers have finally discovered the key to destroying all humanity creating Skynet making the memristor, or memory resistor.
The concept was discovered a long time ago by Leon Chua, but he nor his team of engineers could find the physical creation to build such a thing. 34 years later, it’s here.
This new technology will help make things like instant-on computers, and computers that can think like humans. Pretty neat, huh?

Surprise! Dell fucks shit up!

Seriously, who didn’t see Dell finally screwing something huge up finally? Their computers have only been getting worse and worse, I’m still surprised to find out that they are still huge on the market.
