First up, NASA’s roving lab “Curiosity” managed to pull a perfect landing worthy of Olympic Gold as it took its final step on it’s journey. After landing late Sunday night, the ship sent back material or all to fawn over.
Scientists have not stopped marveling over the grainy images of the planet’s surface and the footage of the ship’s entry into the red planet’s atmosphere. I like this story, but I am not too impressed. I was expecting some pictures with a little more excitement. Like this…
Lemme know when you got that NASA!
Next up, Facebook is entering the world of online gambling. Well, they are at least trying their hand! (crickets sounds)
Whatever. Limited only to the UK for now, the popular social networking site launched an app called Bingo Friendzy that will feature real cash at stake.
This is reportedly the beginning as we are expected to see a relationship with Zynga lead to the inclusion of more slot-themed games. I think this is a great plan. I like to do a little online gambling when I am doing my Facebooking. Now I can do it all in one spot.
Note to self…make sure to “unfriend” my bookies. What? It’s not a real problem until you have kids right?
Finally, yesterday we got our first look at Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, the new action thriller from the director of The Hurt Locker.The film, which has had the full cooperation of the White House, details the assault by Navy Seal Team 6 as they took out Osama Bin Laden. The trailer does not show much, but it looks like the story will get the “Bourne” treatment with its stylized look and direction. Whatever the case, count me in. I don’t like to get too passionate, but let me say this…(SPOILER ALERT). I can’t wait to see them track down and smoke that !@$%^$@^&…!! Too much?
