Posted May 31, 2011 @ 8:46 pm CST by Chris Ness

Yeah, so Apple threw some stuff to the wind, namely their typical secretive attitude towards press announcements, and that’s got people all in a tizzy. Why did they tell us what they’re covering?

Apple announces WWDC menu, media shocked

Posted May 31, 2011 @ 10:45 am CST by Steven Callas

Oh my gawd, Apple just did the unthinkable! It revealed the products and services to be announced at WWDC 2011 ahead of time! What kind of reverse psychology is this?

The Not-so Revenge of the Daleks

Posted May 31, 2011 @ 10:03 am CST by Ben Avecilla

Benjamin is nothing if not predictable (very predictable), so if anyone of us was going to report on this story it might as well be me. The Daleks and the Doctor. They’re like yin and yang. Or Joker and Batman. You can’t have one without the other. The Daleks will pop up, the Doctor will […]

Posted May 28, 2011 @ 1:49 pm CST by Steven Callas

If someone approaches you on the street and offers to sell you the blueprints to Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II fighter jet at a discount, you might want to think twice before laughing it off as a joke. In fact, you should woo them into thinking that you’re genuinely interested so that they set up […]

We’ve been a bit harsh on the French lately. A bit too harsh. And I guess we should apologize for our harshness. Nous sommes désolés!

Posted May 26, 2011 @ 10:44 pm CST by Chris Ness
