HBO and Amazon sign exclusive agreement for HBO content, no GoT

In an announcement sure to thrill absolutely no one, current Amazon subscribers will be able to start watching Exclusive HBO content may 21st on Amazon Video on Demand (aka Amazon Prime). What’s really notable about this, though, is that HBO has pretty much put up a giant middle finger to every GoT fan out there, insisting on holding onto content that’s less than three years old in order to “generate new subscribers.”

Supreme Court hears arguments in Aereo case, questions on the future of cloud computing at stake

While the Supreme Court may not hand a ruling in the case of broadcasters vs Aereo, the Justices showed a surprising level of tech savvy, with Justice Sotomayor asking what a ruling against Aereo would mean to the future of cloud computing services such as Google Drive and Dropbox. By using a complicated series of tiny antennae and encrypted hard drives, Aereo allows users to stream live TV through a computer.

AMC wants to turn Billy Corgan’s wrestling career into a reality show

Don’t think that Billy Corgan doesn’t have much else to do these days. He’s working on not one, but two new Smashing Pumpkins albums (minus most of the original Pumpkins of course), but he’s also got his own amateur wrestling league called Resistance Pro. And now, it looks like AMC is ready to develop an unscripted reality show about Corgan and his wrestling dreams. If Andy Kaufman is really just in hiding and not actually deceased, now would be the perfect time for him to come out.

Oklahoma protesters threaten to “secdee” if Cosmos isn’t cancelled

Furious with Neil DeGrasse Tyson o their Fox channels and his anti-Creationist “knowledge” and his truthy “facts” have gotten a group of people in Oklahoma so hopping mad, they’ve threatened to secede from the Union if Cosmos isn’t pulled off the air. You know, to form a freer union with one god, one religion, where science is outlawed and the truth about what we know about the world squashed. Good times those will be.
