In the haste of attempting to product content after the Osama Bin Laden assassination carried out by U.S. Navy Seals, German news channel N24 inadvertently broadcast a Star Trek inspired logo rather than the official Seal Team Six logo to millions of viewers.

Star Trek fan site Trekmovie.com has the full rundown.

Flip Video: From Gadget Darling To Obsolescence In Two Years

flip-videoCisco is killing The Flip video camera..

Just a couple years ago, I marveled at how compact, how cool, how ‘youtube’ ready a camera like The Flip made me. Now I never bought a Flip – I went for the less expensive and higher quality (at the time) Kodak – but the point was the same. Here was a pretty compact HD video camera that would allow me to shoot video like I would normally shoot photos.

So what happened? Why is Cisco killing the product and 550 jobs?

  • Technology steamrolled the Flip.
  • A video-only device can’t cut it.
  • iPhones & Androids can take pretty good video by themselves and will probably be offering HD before too long.

Reminder: Innovate at the speed of now or die.

 

Dear Representative Tom Marino (R) Pennsylvania, You’re an idiot.

Congressman Tom MarinoIn response to the U.S.’s participation in the U.N. Security Council approved, NATO Operation Unified Protector, Pennsylvania Congressman Tom Marino spoke to the Scranton Times Tribune voicing his disapproval in how President Obama was handling the situation. In particular, he seemed a little peeved that Congress was not consulted prior to beginning operations.

In doing so, Congressman Marino was quoted saying:

The bottom line is I wish the president would have told us, talked to Congress about what is the plan. Is there a plan? Is the mission to take Gadhafi out?… I think he’s fumbling through this…Where does it stop? Do we go into Africa next? I don’t want to sound callous or cold, but this could go on indefinitely around the world.

Geography 101

The last time I checked, Libya is part of Africa. Just to be sure, I went on to the internet and found a Map of Africa. Sure enough, Libya is definitely part of Africa.

Map of Africa

Congressman Marino Focuses On Africa

I understand very well that not everyone has a love for geography and maps like I do. I understand that because Libya is often thought of as an Arab state (incorrectly), that the average Joe or Jane may not know that Libya is an African country. Just to be abundantly clear on this point, Libya is considered an African country because it lies on the continent of Africa.

Congressman Marino however has no excuse for not knowing Libya is an African country, for he sits not only on the Foreign Relations committee, but on the  Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights.

This is why I proclaim Congressman Tom Marino is an idiot.

Miami Maniac Wedding - 1985

The year: 1985
The Venue: Mark Light Stadium
The Event: UM Baseball mascot, The Miami Maniac takes his vows with Mrs. Maniac during the 7th Inning Stretch in a Miami vs. Maine Blackbears early season game.

In a ceremony on the field of Mark Light Cathedral, The Miami Maniac was wed to Mrs. Maniac in an event billed as “a Hysterical, Historical Event” A national television audience on ESPN, and a near sellout crowd on a Sunday night, witnessed the first…and possibly only…mascot wedding !  Oh, yes, there was a baseball game between the Miami Hurricanes and the Maine Black Bears, too.

Officiated by “The Right-On Reverand Rabbi Rokeach”, the ceremony took place with batgirls holding up bats for an archway…as well as carrying in the groom in a style fit for a Pharaoh…including fanning palm frons…the evening saw the happy couple cut a wedding cake, take their first dance, and leave the affair in a vintage 1920′s automobile…to the delight of the Hurricanes faithful !  Several fans even attended wearing tuxedos for the occasion.

The wedding party included Sebastian the Ibis as the best man, Frieda the Flamingo from Hialeah Racetrack as the maid of honor…along with Bud Man, Grimace and other McDonald’s characters,Grandpa Maniac, The WIOD Sports Hound and Bananas, the Maine Black Bear.  The couple spent their Honeymoon at MetroZoo.
