President Obama isn't the one who should be "keeping his yap shut". :rolleyes: He said exactly the right thing, which was while expressing sympathy with Sony's position, that we can't set precedent...

Many times the "pops" you hear on older albums are not dust in the grooves at all. They used to use cheap vinyl full of entrained air and impurities, and albums were thin and flimsy. When the needle...

As cheery as those thoughts are -- :p -- I heard something the other day that I hadn't even suspected. Hackers are now remotely inserting malware into computers, businesses mostly (for now), that...

I see they're "temporarily out of stock", so I guess they must have sold the one they actually made. :p

Because they're not just nerds, not in this case. They're NK agents, and this is a state sponsored attack. That's what the U.S. government said yesterday and they wouldn't have done so if they...

The beneficial effect of this kind of "publicity" is never going to come close to make up for their losses. Even if they do eventually release it on shiny disk, that won't come anywhere near what...

You're right. Ultimately, it was my fault for coming here. However, if I had seen the episode after the first night, and seeing that everyone else was tiptoeing around the Big Twist, I probably would...

The difference here is not just that Sony was hacked, their executives publicly embarrassed, and millions lost. Heck, they lose that much in their executive suite sofa cushions in a bad year. The Big...

I was going to start a thread on this movie, but to be honest, I was kind of scared. :p Who knew NK even had the technical know-how to pull something like this off? It sure intimidated Sony into...

Give him a break. He's a newlywed. That's got to come as a complete shock to the system for a guy like that. :p

They'll probably leave it somewhat open-ended so that they can take it to series if the interest is there. I don't know if they'll set it up kind of like a procedural in that Agent Carter takes on a...

Yeah, 'Curb' is not a show that needs to be "wrapped up", and I'm sure Larry understands that.

What, Larry is suddenly going to develop a conscious, some manners and a sense of empathy? Good...

I wonder how many members who are so ambivalent about 'Agent Carter' saw the Marvel Short at the end of one of the movies (forget which one)...? 'Cause that was pretty cool. It got me stoked for this...
