Hello there fellow comic book readers, a little while back I posted about the new YouTube channel by Felicia Day called Geek & Sundry, and one of the channel’s segment were Motion Comic Book version of some of Dark Horse titles. A recent comic book turn motion is awesome title, Umbrella Academy written by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance), with art by Gabriel Bá (Casanova) and Dave Stewart (Hellboy). If you don’t know about the title or never thought about trying it out, it is ashame but try it out because it is a great series.

Brief summary of the series, “A dysfunctional family of superheroes with bizarre powers, the seven members of the Umbrella Academy spent their childhoods fighting evil and honing their extraordinary gifts under the tutelage of their guardian and mentor, Dr. Reginald Hargreeves. In this story from the past, the UA team fights a mysterious murderer and learns a powerful lesson . . .”

Megaupload Shut Down & Creators Arrested


Hello everyone, this is a repost from the awesome Robot 6, just thought that this was pretty internet shocking news and wanted to share it with everyone. And again this is not in my own words, the whole story couldn’t be better summarized then what Robot 6 wrote. But man this is some crazy stuff, with all the stuff going on with SOPA (bill passing about regulating the internet) and now this, I’m not really going to go about my own personal opinions, just thought these were some very strong actions from the government.

“The U.S. Justice Department and the FBI on Thursday shut down the popular file-sharing site Megaupload, seized $50 million in assets and charged its founder and six others with running an international enterprise based on Internet piracy that’s cost copyright holders at least $500 million in lost revenue. The FBI has begun extradition proceedings in New Zealandto bring company founder Kim Schmitz, aka Kim DotCom, to the United States. He and three other associates are being held without bail until Monday, when they’ll receive a new hearing. Three others remain at large. They face a maximum of 20 years in prison.

News of the shutdown was met with retaliation by the hacker collective Anonymous, which attacked the websites of the Justice Department and the Motion Picture Association of America.

Founded in 2005, Megaupload allowed users to anonymously transfer files like movies and music and, certainly on a much smaller scale, comic books. The Hong Kong-based company, which reportedly employed as many as 155 people, is said to have made $175 million from ads and premium subscriptions. According to the indictment, DotCom, whose assets apparently include a fleet of cars, took in $42 million from the operation in 2010.

Before Megaupload was taken down, the company posted a statement on its website claiming that allegations it facilitated massive breaches of copyright are “vastly overblown”: “The fact is that the vast majority of Mega’s Internet traffic is legitimate, and we are here to stay. If the content industry would like to take advantage of our popularity, we are happy to enter into a dialogue. We have some good ideas. Please get in touch.” [USA Today, The New York Times, CNET]”

Discovery of the Week!


 

Hello there fellow readers, today I discover this very cool and innovative new product called The Vision, it is a bathtub from Gruppo Treesse (a Italian base bath/shower design company), definitely will makes a perfect addition for your bathroom. I know a Bathtub! how is that geeky, will it is tech base, and still a geek has to get clean, so why not get clean in style. Designed by Paolo Parea, the tub features see-through plate glass panels on either side. The tubs are also offered with additional attributes like optional color therapy, radio and audio jacks for your iPod or CD player. The Vision bathtub offers enough space to stretch out, a comfortable built-in headrest and a rejuvenating hydro-massage that will ease you into relaxation mode as you ease yourself in for a deep soak. I am really in love with this unique bathtub, it so out there, but looking through the site there is no price tag, so you know that this will burn a hole in your bank account, still its nice to dream about it when I get my dream place.
