The Douchebag Chronicles

Reason #5432 to hate Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook.

He's worth AT LEAST $4 Billion and he drives an Acura TSX.......are you fucking serious?

I think a portion of my brain just shut down because I literally cannot comprehend that fucking statement. With billions at his disposal he could drive something truly magnificent but he chooses to drive the automotive equivalent of a scientific calculator. Talk about the ultimate expression of his personality, or lack there of.

What a douchebag!!!!

Watch the Pagani Zonda R set a new Nurburgring lap record.

Make sure you watch that in HD. The most amazing thing is that the camera appears to be mounted in some kind of super steady gimbal rig because you can see the movement of the roll cage and dash as the car flexes through turns. Fucking amazing.

Go for the adventure

Here's a video from an Oxford educated guy that decided to quit his job and work as a security contractor in Iraq....crazy.

The Alan Parsons Project

Here come the laser turrets for the Navy. Hopefully they will have X-Wings next year to attack these things like in Star Wars.

Think about how much money they could save in ammunition. An aircraft carrier is basically a floating nuclear power station so they've got a massive amount of power in reserve.

The New King

Is Apple the new Sony? I remember when I was a kid Sony made all the coolest stuff; TVs, Stereos, the Walkman, the DiscMan and tiny freaking portable TVs. They were the home entertainment hardware kings and we all flocked to by their products. The Walkman made riding in the car with my parents something that could be enjoyed instead of feared. These days Sony is but a former shadow of itself, sure they still make great products but their market dominance is a distant memory.

At the height of Sony's consumer electronics dominance Apple was the king of the personal computer. If you had told someone in 1986 that Apple would end up ruling the portable audio market they would have locked you up. Get ready for Apple's big push into the living room....

The truth is out there.

The controversial head of WikiLeaks speaks at TED....fascinating stuff.

Miami Nice

So I've been watching back episodes of Miami Vice for the last few weeks on Netflix. I'm about half way through the second season and if you grew up in the 80's you should really think about re-watching it yourself. Here are some of my impressions.

  • Don Johnson smokes....a whole lot. It's seems that every scene is an opportunity to smoke up and man does it look bad ass while doing it.
  • Johnson's wardrobe is freaking insane....PASTELS!!
  • Even a fake Ferrari Daytona is a thing of beauty.
  • Then there are the other cars, whoever was responsible for sourcing the cars for the show was a serious motorhead. I mean who the hell owned an original Maserati Quattroporte in the 80's?
  • Guest stars!! Its a veritable who's who of people that went on to bigger careers.
  • The Music. First off there is the iconic Jan Hammer score which is pretty amazing but then there are all the classic 80's songs including some "performances" of music within the show itself.
  • Man the dialog, story and editing of TV shows have come a long way in 25 years. Want to really appreciate Lost despite its less than stellar ending just watch a few episodes of Miami Vice.
  • Lots of hot babes. It's amazing to see all of these girls in bikinis without obnoxious fake breasts.
  • Edward James Olmos is one bad motherfucker. On BSG he could own a scene like no one's business but his presence on Miami Vice is amazing.

Close but no cigar

Shut the damn door!

Saw this new Chevy ad for the Corvette on Jalopnik and it just made me kind of sad.

Which reminded me of a pretty awesome commercial that Chrysler is running for the Challenger.

Who cares if the Challenger drives like a truck and anyone that buys one instead of a Mustang has shit for brains...that commercial is awesome. Although my first thought was WTF, why aren't those Challengers Red, White and Blue? Doesn't come in white for 2011....what bullshit. Have they not seen fucking Vanishing Point?

Money well spent

The RIAA is supposed to protect the interests of it's members, the companies and artists of the recoding industry. I'm not sure how blowing $62+ million on fighting piracy is really helping but whatever.

If you can afford an Audi R8 and a Samsung HDTV then pay for the fucking delivery charge...or borrow a fucking truck. Oh wait, he can't borrow a truck because people that drive Audis have no friends......ZING!

Props to Jalopnik.

Stay Classy

This is pretty cool.

Funny stuff from The Onion as usual.

New Apple Friend Bar Gives Customers Someone To Talk At About Mac Products

Stick to what you know.

LOL.....check out this awesome story about Prince and his belief that "The Internet is Over".

This finally made me realize that while Prince appears to be frozen at age 32 by some kind of wizardry he still thinks like the 52 year old man that he really is.

It's just a phone?

I wish I was Steve Jobs and had enough money to not give a shit about any one else's opinions or problems.

The iPhone 4 has some 3G reception issues that may or may not be serious. My experience so far is that it gets far better service than my iPhone 3g did but a lot of people are complaining that holding your phone in a certain way kills the phone's ability to get reception. All phones are effected by this in one way or another but when it effects the Jesus phone all hell breaks loose. So people are irate and pleading to the Sith Lord himself trying to find some kind of explanation for why he is a cruel god and not a benevolent one.

So how does Jobs respond to one of these irate customers? "Relax....It is just a phone"

Such a far cry from his "what have you done" diatribe from a couple of months ago. Hey Steve; relax, it's just a phone.

UPDATE: The whole relax email may be a hoax....whatever.
