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. And because Aereo claims it’s merely providing technology for rent, not broadcasting content. Broadcasters argue that Aereo is simply using tech trickery to skirt copyright law and avoid paying broadcast fees.

The trailer for the new season of Orange is the New Black promises next level crazy

Well, this specific trailer doesn’t, but this one specifically does. Watch both. 

Scientifically accurate Spongebob Squarepants is horrifying, scientifically accurate

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.

And now, here’s a side-by-side comparison of The IT Crowd with the failed 2007 US version

In 2007, NBC was all ready to go with an American version of The IT Crowd, which would have also starred Richard Ayoade, because holy shit, you just could not replace him, and Joel McHale, who later went on to star in Community. It’s not a huge sin that the pilot was essentially a shot-for-shot remake of the British pilot— the entire first season of The Office did the same before it took its own direction, but this is just unsettling.
