Bullet To The Head Trailer Goes On A Killing Spree

The first trailer for Sylvester Stallone's upcoming epic, Bullet To The Head has hit with a white-hot vengeful fury.

Based on the French graphic novel, Du Plomb Dans La Tete by Alexis Nolent, this film, much like Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand (whose trailer also just hit,) will surely look to capitalize on the post-Expendables 2 momentum of old-school action goodness.

Check below for the action-packed pulse-pounding trailer, as Sly, looking like the most ripped 66-year-old ever, teams up with an unlikely partner for revenge; the most satisfying motivation for an action hero there could be.

Obviously, you and I love technology, but sometimes it's good to be reminded of the downside of the world's reliance on computers for every aspect of our life.

Case-in-point: Heartland Payment Services, a huge credit and debit processing company,  announced yesterday that it was the victim of a "highly sophisticated" attack. Up to 100 million accounts may have been compromised. 100 Million... That means, yeah, probably yours.

Hackers apparently installed malware on Heartland's systems that allowed them to capture card account numbers and expiration dates -- in 20 percent of cases, the customer's name, as well.

"We found evidence of an intrusion last week and immediately notified federal law enforcement officials, as well as the card brands," said Robert H.B. Baldwin, Jr., Heartland's president and chief financial officer, in a statement. "We understand that this incident may be the result of a widespread global cyber fraud operation, and we are cooperating closely with the United States Secret Service and Department of Justice."

Monkey Runs Riot; Feces Thrown

You know what's happening right now in Florida? I'll tell you: A rhesus monkey is running riot! The adorable little scamp is "known to throw feces when mad" and was last spotted in Clearwater. Authorities have been trying to capture the monkey since Tuesday, but he has thus far evaded them, escaping a bucket truck and a tranquilizer dart.

The Florida State Congress, eager to capitalize on the fame of their new simian mascot, adopted a new, official motto for the state:  "Florida: If monkey sh*t hits you in the face, you're home."

Microsoft's Surface, the touch-sensitive, light-sensitive display scheme that will soon rule our lives, has many uses, but the newest one we've heard of is the best: It will get you drunk.

Specifically, if a saloon has a SurfaceWare table or bar, it could keep track of how much liquid is in your glass in real time, and send a waitress over when you're a quart low. That way, you need never face the unbearable heartbreak of an empty Rock 'n' Rye ever again. Our hearts say "rad," but our livers say, "Oh, no!"

Check out how the thing works in the video below:

A nefarious super-villain walked away with the titular gun from 1974 James Bond flick The Man with the Golden Gun.

The prop was boosted from Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, England (which hosted the filming of multiple Bond films), and police are reportedly searching the world's volcanic islands for signs of an underground lair and/or an army of atomic super robots bent on world destruction.

In the film, the gun is used by the world's best assassin, and is made out of a lighter, a pen and other small items. But they're all gold, see?

Remember David Kernell? He's the guy who supposedly hacked into vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's Yahoo account and took a look at her email. Well he was indicted and charged for the "hacking," and has pleaded "not guilty" to the crime.

He was released with no bond, but until this matter is settled, Kernell is not allowed to use a computer for anything other than checking email and doing schoolwork.

Trial is set for Dec. 16. Kernell faces a maximum of five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and a three-year term of supervised release.

Google's corporate motto has always been "Don't be evil," but today they're going above that calling toward the truly good and preventing an epidemic that has be-deviled our nation since at least 1997. I'm talking, of course, about drunk emailing.

The problem of sending messages while under the influence is a common problem, but until now, no workable solution has been employed to keep you from going on a bender and sending an email to that girl you had a crush on in fifth grade. But Google has done it.

Mail Goggles is active late at night on weekends, and prompts you to answer math questions before you dash off that email to your boss. It also asks "Do you really want to send this?"

A good start, but we won't be truly satisfied that this drunken email scourge is solved until all computers come with a mandatory Breathalyzer.

Let me throw it open to our commenters: What was the dumbest email you ever sent, and would Mail Goggles have prevented it?

Ancient Yeast Still Makes Beer

Awesome scientist Raul Cano uncovered an ancient weevil trapped in amber in Burma 10 years ago. He extracted a colony of yeast that had laid dormant for 45 million years, then, in a move so heroic it makes us cry, he re-activated the yeast and brewed some beer. That's what we call "Science!"

With his Fossil Fuels Brewing company, Cano brews barrels of pale ale and German Wheat brew from the ancient yeast taken from a long-dead weevil. Beer tasters have declared the brew "smooth and spicy."  Yeah, spicy because the yeast is 45 million years old!

Lars... Um... Thanks Fans Via YouTube

TylerColfax
Posted September 8, 2008 - By TylerColfax

This is great. You see, once upon a time there was this band that really kicked serious ass and didn't give a damn about anything. Then they got rich. Then the internet happened and Napster was created. Then this band, let's call them Metallica, was so angry at the internet that they wanted to sue people and Napster for not paying them for sharing their music.

Well, those days are behind us, Internet. Lars, who was particularly vocal about the copyright infringement of the late 90s, has made his peace and is now embracing the business models that access and openness on the web can bring a superstar band. It's just awkward as hell and makes us actually want to kill them all.

 



So… um.. guys Ty ….. uh, Colfax from The ….uh-- G… 4. Just wanted to …. uh, say… You guys… er..um this …. vi…de…um..o featuring, uh -- Lars trying… to understand - um, technology. So cool, especially... you, Feed reader XxXlob076. teh kewl.. is uh.. what you are. and um… reee … uh, relate to…. the internets with.. all --their uh web… uh.. sites and um, money. BUY ME!

It's really funny to watching Lars try to wrap his brain around internet marketing and loss leaders all while being "hip" and "with it."

From the "You've got to be kidding me file:" A woman's asylum petition was rejected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security after they consulted Wikipedia and found that a document she possessed called a Laissez-passer (French for "let pass") was not adequate to prove her identity. Lamilem Badasa was subsequently deported back to Ethiopia.

A US Circuit Court overturned a ruling by the Board of Immigration that said it was okay for the DHS to use a user-generated-and-edited web site to determine threats.

This just in: The Department of Homeland Security has outfitted all of their outposts with Apple IIes, and shiny, new rotary pencil sharpeners in an effort to keep up with changing trends in computing and communications.
