Suicide Bombers Being Promoted By Hollywood?

Yeah! Now I will never be confused as to who is winning the proproganda war in the US.

Apple Trailers give us the scoop.

( Trailers) A 19-year-old girl prepares to become a suicide bomber in Times Square. She speaks with no accent; it's impossible to pinpoint her ethnicity. We never learn why she made her decision - she has made it already. We don't know whom she represents, what she believes in - we only know she believes it absolutely.

If you ask me, either those men are a poor imitation of Hamas or just decided to purchase winter clothing on sale in the summer.

But then again, what do I know about terrorism. It's not as if there is a small group of extremists claiming to speak for the worlds second largest religion in order to bring paradise on Earth by imposing theocracy eastern style.

But then again I am just a dumb, ignorant westerner who is fascinated more about space than politics, so what do I know?

Video: Second Helpings, And Blogger In Draft

For those of you who don't know, Google has released a new feature enabling users to upload videos to their blog (for free) turning every blog*spot blog into a potential video blog (or vblog for short). Here is my take on the issue, plus some boring thoughts from my life.

Note: Don't mind the ugly mug, as I forgot to shave.

After thoughts: Although this feature is great, I just found out it could take a while for the video to upload.

Google has started a blog (Blogger In Draft) where you can post feedback on this feature via the comment section, a rarity for a Google Blog (something they really needs to change).

Update: There seems to be a bug in the video that makes it automatically play in IE (all versions). It will be removed until Google can fix this error. Sigh...and it was almost a dream come true.

Update (6/20): Google seems to have fixed the "video in IE" problem. Thanks Google!

Video: I Dream Of iPhone

It's coming out this month! :-)

I hear you can even shave with it.

Joking aside, I would seriously consider this phone, although I think I would be loathed to leave Verizon for Cingular (as Verizon's customer service is second to none).

I wonder if I could hack it and use it with my Verizon service? Although if I probably did, I would be sued into oblivion by Apple, not to mention the whole "jail time" thing.

Sigh...I ask for too much.
