Derren Brown: Apocalypse

One of the best pulled off pranks (if-you-will) that I've seen.  Well worth the watch.  Derren Brown is a genius. To make someone believe the apocalypse is real and happening sounds far fetched - but watch and see.

Second and final part:

Americans need to start asking the same questions

We bailed out our defunct banks.  We've even helped bail out Europe with our Fed.  More people need to start standing up like the Irish Journalist. @vincentbrowne

Illegal Everything

John Stossel is at it again.  Interesting show, especially the drug war piece on Portugal.  Does he shine to much of a positive light on it? or is it basically true?  How many gangs/violence would there be here if it were legal?  Makes you wonder.

Lytro: Light Field Camera

Is this the Camera that changes it all?  One picture - as many focus points as you want. Lytro introduces a camera that will instantly make everyone that has it better at taking pictures; much better.  Not just that - think about the potential uses as well - especially if/when it becomes available for video.  Surveillance cameras will never miss a face again.  The crazy zooming in on anything in a picture that you see in movies or CSI - and then managing to focus the object - is now real.

My entertainment setup

XBMC is clearly the best option around for a media center.  The interface is fantastic, there are multiple views and skins, the setup is easy, the add-ons work well, the filters and search options are great, and they keep improving it.  The 360 media player is a joke compared to it.  You can stream over nfs, samba, or even uPnP.  Now that it can run on Raspberry Pi - people will be able to get the best setup for less than $35.
