I think we can be honest in that one of the worst superhero flicks to be based on a comic book hero ever was Daredevil. As cool as the movie could’ve been, the finished product we saw in the 2003 film was rather cheesy.
DirecTV and Viacom have been battling over contract negotiations for over a week now. Viacom had forced DirecTV to pull all of its networks including Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, and Comedy Central from its satellite TV service.
Not too long ago Dish Network announced that it had a new, and very also feature, called Auto Hop on its Hopper DVRs. This cool feature would go in after recording your favorite primetime television programs and delete all the commercials so you could watch without having to be bothered to fast-forward.
Back in September of 2010, when the Michael Bay helmed Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie was filming, a 26-year-old woman who was hired as an extra was severely injured during a scene. The woman’s name is Gabriela Cedillo, and she was injured when a cable snapped that was towing a stunt vehicle that had no one inside.
NASA and its astronauts from the early years of spaceflight including Apollo program astronauts have been having words over who owns the items astronauts brought home after their missions. NASA has recently blocked several auctions when astronauts tried to sell off what they believed to be their personal belongings.
You might remember that we mentioned a company wanted got make an action figure of Steve Jobs. That company killed plans, but then another one popped up a few months back with an even more detailed Jobs collectible figure.
Back in December, we talked about the checklist that was put up for auction by Apollo 13 commander Jim Lovell. The checklist was the item that Lovell used to make calculations needed to get his spacecraft home after an explosion ended the trip to the moon.
Hasbro owns the Transformers brand, and they are now suing Asus over the name of its latest tablet, the Transformer Prime, which clearly has nothing to do with the franchise. Crappy movies are okay, just don’t use two words in the English dictionary that we have previously used, because we own those words.
It must really suck to be the person in charge of securing trademarks for Apple right now. Apparently, Apple thought that it had the trademark for the iPad name in China. Or at least it thought its team of legal ninjas could beat down the Chinese opposition that owned the trademark.
While most of us are still content to be looking forward to the Galaxy Nexus or continuing to use the Galaxy S or S II from Samsung, the company is always looking down the road. Samsung has recently filed a trademark application that seeks to get dibs on the name “Samsung Galaxy Sleek.”
If you pirate Modern Warfare 3, it could cost you $5,000 (USD). That’s one expensive shooter. Even though the game isn’t expected to be released until the 8th of November, there are some reports that discs have been stolen from a shipping warehouse in California and that they are making their way around the Internet and into homes as pirated discs.
We all know that the Sony PlayStation Network was hacked into a while back and hoards of user data was stolen. That theft turned into a class-action suit and Sony wants to be sure that doesn’t happen again.
I have spend my fare share of time expressing how much I dislike AT&T’s quality of service in my area. Apparently, AT&T isn’t the only company to take advantage of its customers and provide poor service.
I always get a kick out of companies that realize they can’t defend themselves in court and end up settling without admitting guilt. If they weren’t guilty, I hardly think most companies would offer to pay out.
If you like toys that can put an eye out and singe the butt hairs of the neighbor’s dog as it tries to drop a load in your yard, you probably remember that Wicked Lasers Spyder III laser I talked about a few weeks ago.
