I don’t really watch stuff like this since I’m not much of a movie person myself but I do like to keep tabs on select actors and actresses and this year we all knew it was Leo’s time to shine. Here are my two huge cents on the this year’s Academy awards.
I’m really happy for Leo bagging his first Oscar ever and his really awesome speech on raising environmental awareness.
Like, how can you not want to plant trees after that speech?
If you’re wondering what this is about, John Stewart of the Daily Show has officially retired from the show this Thursday which was just 12 or so hours ago from my timezone (it’s 40 past midnight here as I write this, Saturday morning). It saddens me because I only got to watch him back in 2009 and I already missed a lot. I don’t watch TV a lot but I like the way he tells the hard truth in a funny way. I also got to watch Stephen Colbert become a force to be reckoned with when it comes to political satire/comedy.
I’ll miss their tandem so much.
Here’s a video of Stephen’s impromptu goodbye message to Jon. It’s beautiful. #jonvoyage
If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10thEveryone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown Get creative! Don’t let us tell you what to do. See you on the net September 10th!

Ugh. Just read the whole story. It’s a shame the country voted someone knowing she hasn’t the experience. The only good thing that will come out of this is that she’ll be forced to actually exceed what is expected of her. And what is expected of her but to fail the senate game.
I saw this on PEX and the whole trailer was just cool:
Samsung Galaxy S3: Exynos 4 Quad Chip Promises a Speed Demon
For the first time, Samsung has provided some information about what its upcoming flagship device – Galaxy S3 – is going to boast. Samsung has rolled out its new speed demon – the Exynos 4 Quad processor chip – that the company has confirmed will power its next Galaxy smartphone scheduled for launch on May 3.
The new chip is designed to give a superior performance and power efficiency. Folks at Samsung claim that the Exynos 4 Quad processor will support clock speeds higher than 1.4 GHz. This statement also coincides with the rumored spec that Galaxy S3 will support quad-core 1.5 GHz Exynos processor.
Thanks to the 32 nanometer manufacturing process, the new silicon will save 20 percent more power than its predecessor (45-nanometer). For more power saving, it will have option to turn off each core whenever not required.
Here’s the official site!
I’m gonna save up to buy this for my birthday! 😀
