Intel antitrust lawsuit sets record for financial nuttiness

The European Commission must need to send their kids to college or something as they have set a record 1.06

billion euro ($1.45 billion) fine on microchip giant Intel for monopolistic activities. EU executives have stated that

Intel paid computer companies to delay or outright cancel plans to launch products that made use of competing AMD

microchips, paid illegal secret rebates as incentive for manufacturers to use Intel chips exclusively and paid a major

retailer to only stock computers that featured Intel chips. AMD also has an ongoing US lawsuit with Intel that is set

for court hearing in 2010.

Airforce's new high-tech helmet for Tie Figh...F-35 pilots

f-35_HMDS.jpg

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the US/UK replacement for squadrons of A-10 Thunderbolts and Harrier

jump-jets, is high tech on it's out but it's the navigation that makes it way impressive. The helmet uses

six infrared digital cameras located around the body of the jet to provide the pilot with an unprecedented

view of the battlefield including a view through the plane itself. Visuals are incredibly detailed despite

whether or time of day due to the camera filters and when the helmet is integrated into the mission's

computer it can provide advanced target and objective recognition.

VIDEO GAMES

 

Ghostbusters game gets multiplayer trailer I'm geeked enough about Atari's upcoming Ghostbusters game that looks to be Luigi's Mansion on steroids and now the gaming masses have a multiplayer trailer to check out. New weapons, enemies and multi- player features (teammate reviving) were shown. Add the OG voice actors to the multiplayer nuttiness and you have a pretty big Twinkie. gametrailers

Holy shit! Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus trailer!!!

Star Trek wasn't the only hot topic for movies this week. Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus looks to answer man's oldest question of who would win in a fight...an enormous prehistoric shark or an enormous pre- historic octopus? Syndicated action star of Renegade Lorenzo Lamas and 80's pop sensation Deborah Gibson star in what is sure to be my most anticipated film of the year. C'mon, if it features a giant shark leaping out of the ocean to snatch down a 747 it has to be good. Coming soon to a discount DVD bin near you. aintitcool via MTV

Toilet snake attack: urban legend comes true?

TAIPEI (Reuters) – A Taiwanese man became a sitting target for a snake,

which bit his penis as sat on the toilet at his rural home, local media reported on Monday.

"As soon as he sat down, he suddenly felt a knife-like pain and reacted instinctively by standing up,

" the China Times said. "When he looked down, he saw the big snake."

The 51-year-old man, from Nantou County, was under medical care with minor injuries,

a director at Puli Christian Hospital said.

"As soon as he has passed the risk of infection, he can go,

" the director, who declined to be named, said. "A snake's mouth isn't always clean."

Local television images showed the black and yellow reptile,

reportedly a species of rat snake, being uncoiled and plucked slowly from the toilet bowl.

Snakes regularly enter rural homes in Taiwan and other sub-tropical regions of Asia.

Team of green explorers rescued at sea by oil tanker


mirror.co.ukGo to home

A team of green explorers have had to be rescued at sea - by an oil tanker.

Raoul Surcouf, 40, Richard Spink, 32, and Ben Stoddart, 43,

were bidding to sail from Plymouth to Greenland before walking to the North Pole without using any fuel.

But the Carbon Neutral Expeditions team had to be rescued 400 miles off the coast of Ireland after their yacht

Fleur was caught in a 36-hour, force-11 storm.

The ship that rescued them last Friday, Overseas Yellowstone, was carrying 680,000 barrels of crude oil..
