British TV station Channel 4 is being strongly criticized after it authorized the purchase of a lock of hair that apparently once belonged to Adolf Hitler, for £3000.

Channel 4 bought the hair from Nazi sympathizer and Holocaust denier David Irving. The controversial ‘historian’ also attempted to sell other Nazi memorabilia online in 2009. Continue reading

Patrick Stewart ‘Outed’ by Guardian Blunder

Guardian columnist Jane Czyzselska, writing for the newspaper’s companion website, mistakenly ‘outed’ Shakespearean actor and ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ star Patrick Stewart as being gay.

In a column celebrating ‘Inception’ actress Ellen Page actually coming out as gay, Czyzselska wrote “some gay people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, think Page’s coming out speech is newsworthy because a high-profile and surprisingly politically aware young actress has decided not to play by the rules that so many closeted Hollywood actors are advised to follow if they are to enjoy mainstream success,” Continue reading

What features does nintendo 3ds have

I have a Nintendo DS. I suppose its maybe a bit passé by current standards, with the Wii, the PSP and what-have-you out on the market, but for me it picked up where my Gameboy Advance left off, which picked off where my original Gameboy did. It works well, the games are great and the touchscreen works perfectly. It’s smart-looking and feels cool.

So how do you improve on a big selling, popular DS model? Answer: Take a leaf out of Hollywood’s book and embrace digital 3D technology. TheNintendo 3DS is a major new invention in gaming, though time will tell if it will catch on. If the device sells, its promise of using autostereoscopy (which creates a 3D effect without the requirement of nerdy glasses) could potentially revolutionize the way we play video games.
