This week we’re joined by Greg Davies, host of Blendover & Heavy Metal Historian podcasts (and of course the TARDISBlend podcast hosted here at Geeks of Doom) as we discuss escalating developments in the Ashley Madison hack, Twitter cuts off deleted political tweets, Facebook launches its own virtual assistant, YouTube takes on Twitch, ILM‘s experimental lab… and much much more.
This week, Andy, Devindra, Chris, and Techmeme’s Lidija Davis break down this coming year’s latest videogame announcements from the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Later, we discuss last week’s All Things D conference, which was “haunted by the man who isn’t here.”
But first, this week’s headlines… LinkedIn suffers a massive security breach as 6.4 million passwords get leaked, Google sneaks the first video from Project Glass, Facebook Camera launches, Facebook plans to allow under 13-year-olds into their service, Apple to bring Siri to the iPad, and Airtime launches.
If you’re unfamiliar with Chatroulette, the website allows people with webcams to be matched up with strangers for some random social interaction. Not working quite as planned, the site has built a reputation for offering up a whole lot of lonely men (often “in all their glory,” if you know what I mean) ready to show off to the lucky ladies who find themselves regrettable staring back.
In a work of genius viral marketing, the new horror film The Last Exorcism decided to take advantage of this situation. They put together videos of beautiful young women, who would appear to be ready to put on a show for the gentlemen watching her feed. Just when the girl looks like she’s about to remove her clothing, however, the eager male expressions turn to shock as her eyes roll back in her head, and a demon-esque creature comes at the camera.
Thankfully, there’s some videos of reactions to this unexpected horror, and you can head below to check them out for yourselves!
