A full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today, no less. Those aren't cheap. Way to stay classy, guys.


Tim Cook, acting CEO of Apple:

We're not going to play in the low-end voice phone business. That's not who we are, that's not why we're here. Goal is not to lead unit sales, but to build the world's best phone.

Hopefully this kills the stupid iPhone nano rumors. Kills 'em dead. It's not coming, people.

EVE, the MMO with a heavy focus on market economics, gets hit with another player heist, albeit not a very creative one. Someone took a huge amount of in-game currency (ISK) from a player-run bank they were administering. This has happened before, and is perfectly legal via the rules of the game.

For those interested, this represents approx. $10,300 USD.


Thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts' gaffe during the presidential oath of office yesterday, President Obama (I still smile a bit at seeing that word pair) decided to err on the side of caution and retake the oath today.

Probably not necessary, but then again, I'm not Bill O'Reilly.

South Park Studios:

On Wednesday March 11, 2009 at 10 pm EST South Park goes HD. We are really excited because, not only will the season premiere be in HD, but we have been working hard for over a year re-rendering previous seasons in native HD. We are not up-converting the episodes, but actually going into each episode and re-rendering every shot and frame at true HD.

South Park hasn't been made with actual construction paper for years. The studio uses a sophisticated rendering farm with tools like Maya and Motion (made on Macs, of course). And recent seasons have been far more visually stunning. The jump to HD is great news and will make the show look even better.
