Beatdown

On this week’s show, a court rules in favor of Apple over Samsung in a landmark patent and design lawsuit to the tune of $1 billion. Panelists Andrew Sorcini, Christopher Burnor, and guest VentureBeat staff writer Sean Ludwig discuss how this affects Apple, Samsung, the whole mobile phone ecosystem, the future of patent lawsuits, and you, the consumer.

But first, the headlines…Twitter removes friend-finding from Tumblr and removes 3rd-party plugin identification from Twitter.com, Microsoft gets a new logo, Apple delays TV device development, a landmark filesharing fine is upheld, Ask.com buys About.com from The New York Times, and President Obama visits Reddit.

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine To Audience: ‘Obama Staged Aurora, Sikh Temple Shootings’

Dave Mustaine

During a recent Megadeth concert in Singapore, frontman Dave Mustaine went full tilt goo-goo for Satan when he asserted to a confused crowd that U.S. President Barack Obama staged the tragic shootings in both Aurora, Colorado and at The Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. This, according to Mustaine, was so that the President could justify a ban on guns. In the video taken from the concert, which you can watch below, Mustaine expressly states that the President planned these murders.

“Back in my country, my President is trying to pass a gun ban so he’s staging all these murders like the Fast and Furious thing down at the border and Aurora, Colorado, and all the people who were killed there and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple.”

Mustaine goes on to say that he doesn’t know where he’s going to live if “America keeps going the way it’s going,” stating the the country is “turning into Nazi America.” The crowd appears to disagree with Mustaine judging from the tone of its roar, which included a few boos. One audience member can even be heard shouting, “Hey, we love America!” Mustaine’s response to the crowd’s reaction: “Be quiet.”

So let’s dissect Mustaine’s claims with a few facts, lest anyone out there get the idea that these remarks are anything other than completely deranged.

Star Trek original series cast

Actress Nichelle Nichols, who played Lt. Uhura in the original 1960s Star Trek television series, recently had the chance to visit the White House, where she had her photo taken with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

And what are the two of them doing in the photo? Flashing the Vulcan salute.

Awesome.

Check out the photo here below.

Nichols met with Obama on February 29, 2012, and posted the photo to her Twitter account today. “A photo came to me in the mail that I’ve kept for myself for over a week, but now it’s time to share it with Trekkers everywhere,” the 79-year-old actress tweeted. “Taken 2/29/12 in the Oval Office – Live Long & Prosper!”

BOOM! Studios ran a straw poll of sorts for the first time in comics history. In September, they stated that they would judge the winner by the quantity of comics ordered, even saying that any candidates or potential candidates with less than 1500 orders would not be printed. And the winner was: Decision 2012: Barack Obama #1.

Other qualifying candidates that made the cut were Sarah Palin (#2 even though she isn’t running), Ron Paul, and Michele Bachmann.

President Barack Obama To Appear On Upcoming Episode Of ‘Mythbusters’

The Movie God   |  @   |

It’s been announced that Discovery Channel’s popular proven-by-science show, Mythbusters, will have itself an interesting special guest during an upcoming episode: President Barack Obama.

The White House has revealed that Obama has already filmed the segment, and that the episode he’s set to appear on will air on December 8, 2010. The President is taking part with the show in an effort to better promote math and science education in the United States.

And what will be up for busting on this special episode of Mythbusters? An old foe, of course. On two separate occasions, the team has attempted to prove whether or not Archimedes, a Greek scientist, was able to set fire to the ships of an Roman fleet that was attacking just by using a collection of mirrors and the sun’s rays. Twice now this is something that has been busted, but the show has laid down the challenge to anyone to prove otherwise. Perhaps someone has done just that and this will be their stage to show how.

Harold and Kumar

Collider recently spoke to actor John Cho on the set of his television show, Flash Forward. During their conversation, both Harold and Kumar 3 and Star Trek 2 were touched on.

Unfortunately, the next Trek doesn’t have much going on as they wait for a script to be completed, but it would appear that another Harold and Kumar could indeed be closer than we thought.

Cho says that all is moving ahead smoothly, and that they could begin filming the movie by June. He indicates that it would take place a couple of years later and that this time around the holidays will be the main backdrop for the movie. In fact, it sounds like they want to make a legit holiday Harold and Kumar flick, which would actually be pretty awesome.
