Avatar, Has Sci-fi Found Its Heaven's Gate?

Recovering Hater Puhlease! (443 comments)

In Avatar, mankind has the ability to cross the voids of space in an effort to mine a mineral rich alien world. Bring these minerals back for refinemant and use. We have the ability to implant a human mind into an alien avatar body that we have ourselves created and control that persons new avatar body. And yet we can't repair a paralyzed human body? Fail.

External Airbag Designed to Protect Pedestrians

Recovering Hater and now for something completely stupid... (253 comments)

Yeah, the impact from the car won't scratch you, but when it shoves you into a stationary lamp post or wall at 45 mph you will still splatter.

"We're Linux" Finalists Announced

Recovering Hater Who is going to see these? (133 comments)

It's my understanding that the winner won't be put on television in any way. How is this going to reach anyone besides people that are already interested in Linux? Point being- people that are *already* interested in Linux will probably try it anyway. This is just a feel good about ourselves project but I guess it's a fun one though.

Yahoo Promises To Anonymize and Limit User Data

Recovering Hater Actual versus PR speak (76 comments)

Well. It seems like Yahoo is trying to actually not do evil and Google is trying to talk about not doing evil while making it palatable for the masses. Or something. (Insert witty statement illustrating contrasting styles of Google and Yahoo here)

Peter Jackson to produce The Hobbit

Recovering Hater Recovering Hater writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Recovering Hater (833107) writes "In a move sure to please fans of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, New Line Cinema and Peter Jackson have come to an agreement and patched up their differences. FTA:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071218/ap_en_ot/film_the_hobbit/



Jackson, who directed the "Rings" trilogy, will serve as executive producer for "The Hobbit." A director for the prequel films has yet to be named..."I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us, so that we may begin a new chapter with our old friends at New Line," Jackson said in a statement. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth." Two "Hobbit" films are scheduled to be shot simultaneously, similar to how the three "Lord of the Rings" films were made. Production is set to begin in 2009 with a released planned for 2010, with the sequel scheduled for a 2011 release.

Recovering Hater Recovering Hater writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Recovering Hater (833107) writes "A couple in Nevada charged with two counts each of child neglect have blamed internet addiction. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070716/ap_on_re_us/ne glect_internet_addiction. Even though they had enough food in the house the children were malnourished and starving. The parents could not be bothered to feed them because they were too busy playing online video games."
