Trent Reznor bitches out Apple & smart phone OSes

Nine Inch Nails frontman and digital music aficionado Trent Reznor has been having trouble with

censorship from the get go. First it was Wal-Mart insisting that they carry a clean version of his

albums a couple of years ago, now the artist is angry with Apple for censoring his iPhone application.

In a lengthy tieraid Reznor responded that Apples app store approval process is severly lacking

common sense. "You can buy the Downward Fucking Spiral on iTunes, but you can't allow an iPhone

app that may have a song with a bad word somewhere in it...Come on Apple, think your policies

through and for fuck's sake get your app approval scenario together." He then went on to say that

he will contine to use the iPhone as it's OS is "THE most elegant, modern smartphone" and claims

that "nobody has an Android phone" and "WinMo straight-up sucks balls."

Several days later Apple responded to a complaint from an app developer about adult material

for app store application by informing them that Parental Controls have been announced for

iPhone 3.0 and that it "would be appropriate to resubmit your application for review once this

feature is available."

Hiller reviews the Bionic Commando demo

The Bionic Commando multiplayer demo came out last week and I have given it the rundown. The

demo gives eager swingers a look at BC's swinging, combat and multiplayer features.

- Grappiling is fun. Easy to scale walls/get atop obstacles.

- Aiming and maneuverability is a bit clunky. Bio Joe is has the walking grace of a sloth.

- Connecting to multiplayer was either dead-on or nonexistant.

- The night-time map didn't wow me in terms of tournament play or design.

Hugh Jackman buys a shitload of breakfast for Wolverine fans

A group of die-hard Wolverine fans got a treat from X-Men Origins star Hugh Jackman whilst camped out in line

for the movie in Tempe, Arizona. When Jackman heard about the fans he ordered 67 breakfast trays and 80 GALLONS

of coffee for them from the nearby Paradise Bakery. Breakfast totalled around $4300 and most likely softened the blow for

the fans who then had to endure X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Ore. police: Man stopped for DUI twice in one day


may 4, 09

MCMINNVILLE, Ore. – Police said a man was stopped and cited

with driving under the influence of intoxicants charges twice in one day.

In both instances, police say, the 52-year-old man was driving the same pickup

and stopped near the same state liquor store.

Police said they first stopped the man at 11:05 a.m. Friday after he ran a red light.

He was released into the custody of his grandmother and his vehicle was impounded.

A while later, authorities released the pickup to another party on condition the man not drive it.

But he did. A tow company employee saw Reeves take the wheel and called police.

Police spotted the pickup and followed it back to the state liquor store, where he was cited again.

The second time around, the man was booked in jail on $6,250 bail.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. – A Pennsylvania man has been accused of burglarizing at least three apartments

and vandalizing them with spray paint and chocolate pudding

after police say he was found covered in chocolate syrup.

Police say the 24-year-old Bethlehem resident was arrested early Friday

after being found with silver spray paint and chocolate on his hands and clothes.

They say that helped tie him to a nearby burglary in which pudding and chocolate syrup

were spread across the floor and graffiti was spray-painted on the walls.

The man is accused of the burglaries at off-campus apartments of Lehigh University students.

Bethlehem Detective Sgt. Mark DiLuzio says the man admitted the burglaries but claimed

another man broke into the apartments and let him in.

BRIDGEPORT, Pa. (AP) - One man is dead and another in jail after what suburban Philadelphia police
say was an argument over a drinking game that escalated into a fatal shooting.

Investigators say 24-year-old Joseph Jimenez shot and killed 25-year-old Scott Riley after they started
arguing over a game of beer pong at a party Friday night in Bridgeport, about 15 miles outside Philadelphia.

Authorities say the two men began arguing over the game during a party then met up outside,
where Riley mocked Jimenez and challenged him to shoot.

According to a police complaint Jimenez drew a concealed .40-caliber handgun and fired,
striking Riley in the neck. Riley was taken to a hospital where he later died.
Jimenez is being held without bail on first- and third-degree murder charges.
