  1. I might be wrong here, but I'm not sure that it's going to work out that Google is the "competition". Google seems to favor a strategy of getting their software on as many devices as possible, and siding with one mobile company and in some way freezing out or disadvantaging the others seems counter to the entire approach they've taken. My understanding of it, at least from reading the BBC and Bloomberg, is that the main motivator behind the purchase wasn't to get a mobile company. The real motivation is that by buying Motorola Mobility, they don't get only the company - they get its patents, as well. As you are no doubt aware, there is a huge patent war in mobile technology, with companies suing each other over what is proprietary. Google and Apple sued each other recently, and now HTC and Apple are suing each other. By acquiring Motorola mobility, Google bought about 17,000 patents on various aspects of mobile technology. I don't think this is about changing the way Google operates - I think it's taking strategic territory in the patent war.
  2. An AMV about Terra leaving the Teen Titans for Slade:
  3. This is highly satisfying: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-14497763
  4. When I heard "Who Can It Be Now?" by Men at Work played on the local oldies station.
  5. Apologies about that; newbie mistake. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for the heads up.
  6. I can't stop playing Lunar: Silver Star Harmony on the PSP. Loved the PS version of the game and the sequel, and I've been waiting so long for another version of the game. Granted, it's pretty much the same game as the PS version, but it's been so long that it's a real treat for me. Of course, I still find a little time to devote to DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball 2, one of my guilty pleasures. Love the DOA girls, and I won't apologize for it, so I await the coming heckling with courage. Poetic for something so shallow, huh? I also bought Crystal Gem Saga for the PSP, but haven't had a chance to play it yet. I'm not sure if I'll hit that next, or make another run through Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords first.
  7. From The Onion: http://www.theonion.com/articles/lady-gaga-kidnaps-commissioner-gordon,17789/ Lady Gaga Kidnaps Commissioner Gordon GOTHAM CITY—Supervillain Lady Gaga brazenly abducted Commissioner James Gordon from a charity fundraiser Tuesday, leaving police baffled and the citizens of Gotham fearing for their safety. Known for her outlandish costumes and geometric polygon hair, the criminal madwoman made a daring escape from Arkham Asylum last week and has been taunting authorities by interrupting television broadcasts ever since. "If you ever want to see Commissioner Gordon again, you'll do exactly as I say," Lady Gaga said from her secret lair, adjusting her angular yellow Tyvek and spandex dress as henchmen danced menacingly around the bound commissioner. While the kidnapping occurred at stately Wayne Manor, home of playboy jet-setter Bruce Wayne, the eccentric billionaire was not available for comment.
