Yesterday, John McCain was to appear on the Late Night with David Letterman Show, but John McCain decided to cancel his appearance. McCain's cancellation wasn't taken to well by Letterman and Letterman decided in McCain's absence to give McCain some grade A zingers. Whether it was right or wrong of McCain to cancel his appearance I will let you decide, but in any case enjoy the video posted above.

I just thought I would put out a friendly reminder about this game, to any one interested. I just finished watching this review and it really does sound pretty cool.
Update: Just thought I would remove the IGN counter since it turned into an ad.

Well the new one that is. Appearently, someone had an idea what to do with the car and decided to steal it, while the car made a stop in Toronto. In the below video (which I found on The Movie Blog), it is clearly seen that someone on the side runs over to the car after the driver exited it and takes off with the car. If this is a stunt, its a good one since it does look like a legitimate car theft.

A Few days ago, I wrote that I felt that the news that Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman were going to play The Riddler and The Penguin was not true. Well it has been confirmed to be false information. In a recent interview(which The Movie Blog reported on), Mr. Hoffman is stated as saying:
“No one has talked to me about it ever — never,” replied Hoffman. “It happened, like, five years ago, too. It was a rumor back then and it’s still a rumor. [laughs] It’s just in the press. It’s funny.”This is not a surprise to me. I'm just surprised at how easy it is to get these stories going.

Well at lest that is according to Michael Caine. In a blog post on MTV.com, Casey Seijas (a blogger for MTV) commented on a recent interview they had with Michael Caine at the Toronto International Film Festival in which Michael Caine appears to confirm that they are looking at the Penguin and the Riddler to be the villains in the next Batman Film. Also, according to the Post they are looking at Johnny Depp to play the Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman to play the Penguin.
Now, if this news is in fact true I would be pretty happy, as well as, many fans that have been making posters for the next film featuring The Riddler as one of the next villains for weeks. And, being a fan of Johnny Depp's work I don't think there would be a better choice to play the Riddler (then again, I could be wrong). But that being said, I would like to tend not to believe this post since I feel that Michael Caine was being sarcastic.
If you read to about the second paragraph of the post he says, “It’s Johnny Depp as The Riddler. And The Penguin is Philip Seymour Hoffman. I read it in the paper.” Then, Michael Caine goes into this story were he is talking to an Warner Bros. executive that confirms this information. So if he was in fact being honest I don't really feel that you can really tell from this interview. So before we all get excited I feel we should all just wait on confirmation from the Studio, whether or not this news is legit information.

Today, Star Trek is celebrating its 42nd birthday. It was on this date in 1966 that Star Trek (The Original Series) first aired on NBC in the United States. Since then it has birthed many spin offs and is now the second longest running Science Fiction series.
For anyone that want a complete list of series, The Movie Blog as a nice post that you can find here. So happy birthday Star Trek and I really do hope that it can come back. I still to this day watch re-runs of many of the spin off series. (I must confess that I don't watch the Original series regularly.) Hopefully, the new Star Trek film can breath new life into the franchise.

Yesterday, Google released there new revolutionary browser called Google Chrome. This new browser promises to be more stable and secure then the other previous browsers and has some new innovative features.
The first thing that many users may notice from using this browser is that it is fast. Several sites have tested Google chrome against the other major browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Safari) and found that it runs a lot fast. ( if you want more details please read here.)
The next thing that people will notice is the fact that Google Chrome still remains stable as more and more tabs get opened in the browser. Earlier today, I had about 20-30 tabs open and it didn't even slow down in its performance. Part of the way that this is done is that each tab actually generates a separate task in Task manager and thus, if one tab gets hung up it doesn't effect the rest of the browser. (If you want more information on the features, etc. there is a 38 page comic that you can read describing the browser, which you can read here.)
But one feature that I found had great promise is the Incognito Window. This window is designed to help protect your privacy, by not saving any cookies and not generating a log of any sites that you visit in the this window. I really think that this idea is pretty cool, and will definitely help those that live with others to hide their activities that they don't want them to some how stubble across.
Now there a few negatives to this browser. Firstly, it attempts to handle everything in the address bar including Google search. I really prefer the way that Firefox handles search engines in a separate bar and allows you to on the easily switch between search engines in that same bar. As far as I can tell there is no option for changing out search engines other than switching your default search engine.
Secondly, there are no add-ons. Being a new browser there hasn't been any time for anyone to develop add-ons for this browser as yet. But I do believe that time will bring in some add-ons, especially as people adopt this new browser. (For a list of other known problems, please visit Google Chrome Help Center.)
Lastly, if you want to download Google Chrome you can find it here. Enjoy.
