The Samsung Galaxy S II: Pre-Orders Surpass 3 Million Units

Carriers have begun making pre-orders for the Galaxy S II, and they’re pretty impressive. More than 3 million pre-orders have been placed for Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone across the 120 countries and 140 carriers where it will be released. Its predecessor, the Galaxy S, sold 10 million units in 2010 and it looks like its … Continue reading

Funny or Die on the PSN Outage

The PlayStation Network first went down April 20th–19 days ago–and it’s still not back up. In a previous post, I talked about the outage and who may have been responsible. No one would’ve guessed that it would still be down almost 20 days later. Sony was the victim of a cyber attack which exploited some weakness in … Continue reading

World’s Most Expensive Hybrid: The 2013 Jaguar C-X75

Jaguar has been on a roll lately with their new car designs. The new XJ, XF, and XK are more aggressive but retain the elegance that Jaguar is known for. Their C-X75 is no exception. Originally, it was a concept that people thought would never see production. It turns out they were wrong, as it … Continue reading

Audi Trimaran and Bugatti Sang Bleu Speedboat: Two Awesome Aquatic Concepts

When you think of Audi and Bugatti I’d be surprised if boats came to mind. Recent concepts for both companies might change that in the future. At this point they’re each more of a design exercise, but given how amazing they look I would love to see them on the water. The first concept boat … Continue reading

Gmail Expands Contact List Cap for the Uber Popular

There are a lot of people with a Gmail account, myself included, and while I’ve never been concerned about the contact limit I guess some people were. Until two days ago (May 4th) the cap for Gmail contacts was set at 10,000. I know, how dare they (#sarcasm). But, for those who needed more, Google … Continue reading

“Colombiana” (2011): It’s “Hanna” All Grown Up

Colombiana‘s trailer just premiered today, and it’s anything but shabby.  Not only does it come from the writers of Taken (which basically requires me to see this movie), it is also from the director of Transporter 3. That’s not a bad combination, but before I put forth my thoughts you need to watch the trailer if … Continue reading

2011 LR4 Ads: Land Rover Makes Some “Funnies”

I’m a fan of Land Rover. They make quality vehicles that look good tame but can be wild off-road. Most people show their Range Rover lineup a lot more love than the more reasonable LR(insert # here), but the LR4 really does deserve some props. It’s the roomiest Land Rover, and IMO, an all-around good-looking … Continue reading

Immortals (2011): From the Producers of 300

The first trailer for Immortals was recently released, and the movie looks like it will be very entertaining. Like it says on the poster, it comes from the producers of 300, and it definitely is in that vein. When I watched the trailer I thought it seemed the product of 300, Troy, and Clash of the … Continue reading

“Another Earth” (2011) Trailer: Plot Fail

Another Earth recently released its movie trailer after doing well at the Sundance Film Festival. From the title of the film, you can gather it has to do with another planet earth and the implications which ensue. That being said, the Facebook page for Another Earth outlines the story as: Rhoda Williams, a bright young woman accepted into MIT’s … Continue reading

HBO’s Game of Thrones: A Regal Television Experience

If you’ve seen an HBO series, you know they tend to do shows right. They don’t hold back.  Their shows are believable and real. After watching the first two episodes of Game of Thrones, I can see that they have kept that reputation alive–Game of Thrones is a fantastic show. If you’ve never heard of … Continue reading
