The SUV With Good Ole’ American Muscle is Back: The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

I can’t speak for you, but almost all of my favorite vehicles from the Chrysler Group (Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, and Fiat) have the same badge: SRT. If you didn’t know, SRT stands for “Street & Racing Technology”. It is a common misconception that the acronym stands for “Street Racing Technology”, but Chrysler was sure to … Continue reading

Hackers Keep PlayStation Network Offline for 3 Days…and Counting [updated]

The PlayStation Network (PSN) went down April 20th and Sony reported that night that the network would be down for a “full day or two”. It should go without saying that PS3 owners everywhere were displeased. Luckily for me, and real gamers (I had to say it), XBOX Live has no problems. After three full … Continue reading

An Amazon Tablet is On the Way: Samsung Has Been Contracted for the Project

According to gdgt, Amazon.com is set to dive into the tablet wars, and they have Samsung hardware for support. This is beautiful. Amazon.com is one of my favorite companies to purchase things from.

Oh the sequels, they are a comin’…Star Trek 2, Bond 23, Men in Black 3, The Dark Knight Rises and oh so many more in 2012

When I see a movie I like, I always give a sequel a chance. I rarely care how good it looks, I’m just willing to see what they build on and where the story goes. The sequel to a sequel is different. If the movie that came before it was not impressive, the name alone … Continue reading

Anonymous: The Shakespeare Conspiracy Thriller

I like a good conspiracy, and I’m sure everyone has heard a time or two that Shakespeare didn’t actually write all of the work accredited him. Now we get a conspiracy thriller going deeper into the subject. Who wrote the plays of William Shakespeare–Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford–and why would they not take the … Continue reading

First Trailer of Warrior (2011)

Another fight movie is set to release, and America will be pleased. Because of our history, we–Americans–love the fight; we love watching someone beat the odds and do what others say is impossible. We love fight movies: Rocky, The Fighter, Cinderella Man, Million Dollar Baby, Raging Bull, The Hurricane, The Set-Up, and The Quiet Man–all great … Continue reading

Audi Quattro May be a “Go” for Production

  The Audi Quattro Concept garnered considerable attention when it first debuted. Looking at it, there’s really is a lot to like. If you’re familiar with Audi you probably recognize the term “quattro”–today it is used to indicate that an Audi vehicle is all-wheel drive. If you’re an Audi fan then you may be familiar … Continue reading

Premium Channels and Their “Old” Shows–The Borgias, Camelot, Game of Thrones

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but a trend has clearly developed (at least among premium channels)–to make shows set before 1600AD. Starz, HBO, and Showtime have all made at least one show in the last year that fits the bill. Starz has done: The Pillars of the Earth, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, … Continue reading
