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.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past hitting theaters in the US at the end of May, the timing couldn’t be worse for Bryan Singer, who is facing very serious accusations that in 1999, he stuck his wang in the b-hole of a 17 year old. Perhaps that then puts Singer in the perfect spot to direct the next Elmo movie.
Oculus, the horror movie starring Karen Gillan is in theaters now, after being in limited release for quite a while.

Is it a great horror flick, or should it have stayed locked up in the psych ward?
A couple days ago, Harrison Ford did a Reddit AMA to promote his new movie ‘Years of Living Dangerously’. And this being the internet, he was of course asked as to who shot first— Han or Greedo?
I think we would all like to know: Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?
I don’t know and I don’t care.
