Zombieland was a fun film from 2009. Now, Amazon wants to make it a TV series. Amazon apparently has a Zombieland pilot coming soon to its Amazon Prime service. The Amazon Prime streaming video service is much like Netflix. If you’re not familiar, Amazon Prime is both a deal which gets you free two-day shipping on many Amazon products, plus you gain access to a fairly large catalog of TV shows and movies; which you can stream over your browser or on a set-top box like the Ro
Just a few days after announcing that it will kill Reader, Google launched a new service called Keep. If you’ve got a Google account, you can access it from: drive.google.com/keep. If you have an Android device running version 4.0 or up, you can download the convenient Keep app from the Play Store, but you don’t need the app to use Keep, you can just use your browser. Keep lets you take notes and make lists easily and stores that information in your Google Drive. It ev
The DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) allows copyright holders to request that infringing material be removed from web sites. Usually, this is done when the copyright holder (or someone working on their behalf) sends a DMCA take-down to the alleged infringer. This is a legal notice asking that the offending content be removed. Sounds like a good idea right? Actually, its a farce. Google, for example, gets a staggering number of take-down requests each week. Torrent Freak has
NVidia posted this video showing off their new facial rendering technology which they are calling “Face Works.” Realistic digital humans are pretty much the holy grail of 3D animation. Some studios have pulled it off using motion capture. A technology in which a human acts out the part of a digital character. For example, Andy Serkis is probably best known for his performance of Gollum in the Lord of the Rings and Kong, in King Kong. Until now, the rendering of these c
Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey wants to be mayor of NYC. He gave an interview to 60 Minutes Sunday night in which he said, “What I love about New York is just the electricity I feel right away. It’s chaos. It’s kind of like being in a car in the middle of a thunderstorm. Everything is raging around you, but you’re safe inside that car. So New York feels very much to me like that.” I’d call that a fairly apt description. Do you think he’d
John Riccitiello, the CEO of Game publisher Electronic Arts has announced his plans to step down. This may or may not have anything to do with the debacle over SimCity. Frankly my dear, I’m sick of hearing about it. If you’re not, you can read the whole story on Forbes. Adding insult to injury, security researchers have discovered a critical flaw in EA’s Origin Platform. Can EA do anything right?
Wired has the story of “Weev” AKA Andrew Auernheimer the AT&T hacker sentenced to 3.5 years in prison for exploiting a hole in AT&T’s network security to “steal” the email addresses of roughly 120,000 iPad users. Auernheimer plans to appeal. How the hell is this a crime worthy of 3.5 years in jail!? AT&T should be thanking this guy for finding a security flaw and then they should hire him. An email address is not a secure piece of data. Ma
“Winter is coming” is the motto for house Stark from HBO’s smash hit, Game of Thrones. Season 3 of Game of Thrones starts March 31st. Wired has a story about George R.R. Martin signing on to produce other new shows for HBO as well. It took Martin six years to write the fifth GOT book, lets hope this new deal doesn’t delay the sixth book even longer.
If you’re not familiar with the Raspberry Pi, stay tuned to WeTalkNerdy.tv because I’m going to introduce you to it in Episode 4. In the mean-time, enjoy the pretty x-ray pictures from Geek.com. Why x-rays? Because you’re a bored dentist with an x-ray machine I guess.
