On Preview Night on Wednesday at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, Warner Bros. Consumer Products presented a tribute to DC superhero Wonder Woman in celebration of her 75th Anniversary. Their exhibit included a massive replica of the Amazonian’s Invisible Jet, where SDCC attendees got to take their photo inside the cockpit.
The installation, located at the intersection of Island and 6th in San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter outside the convention center, also included a themed art exhibit with huge murals of Wonder Woman. The jet will be on display through Sunday, July 24, which is the final day of SDCC.
So this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International is in full swing and everyone is excited to geek out over whatever they geek out over. While most people were on the convention floor during Wednesday’s preview night getting an early read on the event, Geeks Of Doom was invited to explore the Con’s interactive Game Of Thrones exhibit, The Hall Of Faces.
For those that don’t know, in HBO’s Game Of Thrones, there is a place in Braavos called the House of Black and White, and in it you can find a place appropriately called The Hall Of Faces, which houses the skinned faces of the dead. These faces are then worn by those who want to blend into the crowd so they can perform whatever deed needs to be done, namely assassinations.
We were able to get an early look at what is going on inside SDCC’s Hall of Faces. Check out our photos here below.
This week, Microsoft lays off thousands, the FCC hears from a million, Amazon follows the Netflix model, Facebook forces mobile users to switch to chat, OKCupid may have tricked people into falling in love, and does your Apple device hide a backdoor? All that and much more below.
This week, both hackers and Congress tell the NSA “enough!”, what it’s like when the NSA shows up at your ISP’s doorstep, how stores are tracking you through your cellphone, Netflix competes with the big boys, and Google unveils a new way into the living room.
On this week’s show, we explore how Digg went from becoming king of social news to cashing out for half a million. Then we discuss the transition of one of Google‘s top executives, Marissa Meyer, to becoming the new CEO of Yahoo, and whether it’s enough to save the flailing company.
But first, we return from San Diego Comic-Con, check out a couple of new videogames, invest in a new mobile data plan, and kickstart a game console. Then we discuss the hacking of Apple‘s in-app process, a massive password breach at Yahoo, Microsoft previews Office 2013, AT&T may charge for FaceTime, and Microsoft’s “stack ranking” management system.
