The T in TV is for transparency!

Fun!  Haier (maker of one of the shittiest air conditioner I have ever owned) unveiled their
clear OLED display this weekend at IFA2011 (don't ask).  The organic display (whatever the
hell that means) is 22" at 1680x1050 with sharp images with colors a little on the muted side.
Rather than to deploy to home entertainment centers that are positioned in front of white walls
across America, Haier is looking more towards eye-catching advertising for their displays.

 

- Should go well with that transparent Samsung laptop we talked about a while ago.

Hiller reviews BloodRayne Betrayal

Having never played the previous BloodRayne games or having seen any of the reportedly 
horrific Uwe Boll films based on the vampire assassin Rayne I can't say that I was much 
interested in the prospect of an XBLA sequel (or should I say "diet" sequel).  But as always,
my frugal mind gave way the moment I saw BloodRayne Betrayal's glorious 2D frame by 
frame animation and platforming, an aspect that has lured me into many an XBLA yawners 
like Hard Corp and Shank (not that Shank was entirely frame by frame animated).  BB is a 
bit on the campy side with Rayne being deployed via rocket coffin into stages but camp can
easily go on the wayside as she is a lot of fun to play.  Sure you can shoot, slice and dash
but it's the little additions like the "bite of exploding death" and the Mario-esque head jump
that make the game a lot of fun.  Sure some of the bosses seem ripped out of the usual 2D
adventure game (Castlevania in particular) and the difficulty can be a little bit of a pisser 
when you just want to screw around but overall I'm enjoying the game.  For $15 it's worth
a shot...and a bite.

Have snakes, will travel
Last Wednesday, Miami international airport authorities found seven exotic snakes
and three tortoises stuffed into the trousers of a passenger.  The gig was up when 
the man went through a body scanner which gave away the reptiles location (packed
in nylon bags).  He was then arrested by US Fish and Wildlife Service officials for 
animal trafficking.  When asked why he had seven snakes and three tortoises in his 
pants the passenger said "That's all I had room for."  Ba Boom!!!

Forgotten mooncakes spark Taiwan station bomb scare







 

TAIPEI (Reuters) -

Police in the southern Taiwan city of Kaohsiung mobilised the bomb squad

after a suspicious package was found in a subway station toilet,

only to find it contained nothing more dangerous than mooncakes.

 

A cleaner called police to report the package left on top of a waste bin on Saturday.

Part of the station, known for its stained glass ceiling, was cordoned off and explosives experts were called in.

 

TV pictures showed a police officer in a full protective suit entering the toilet carrying specialist equipment

while other officers waited outside with more gear.

The officer then emerged carrying a bright blue cardboard box full of mooncakes

, pastries with sweet fillings traditionally eaten at the Mid-Autumn Festival.

"It was x-rayed first to see what it was and whether there was any chemical or electrical reaction,

" local police station chief Cheng Ming-chung told TV.

"Someone must have put it down to use the toilet and forgotten it when they left,"

he said, adding that the police would continue to investigate.

 

 

 

Man found butchering cow in Utah driveway (AP)





OGDEN, Utah –

Authorities are considering charges after a Utah man was found butchering a cow in his driveway.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports (http://bit.ly/nCa1an) that authorities received a call Sunday afternoon

from an Ogden resident who reported a neighbor cutting up a cow in his driveway.

 

The caller told authorities they heard what sounded like a gunshot shortly before the butchering began.

Police say when officers arrived, the man was removing the cow's head. He denied shooting the animal,

and told the officers it had been delivered dead.

Prosecutors are now reviewing the case for potential charges, including possible health code violations.
