A video has surfaced on the internet that shows a nuke reached in Modern Warfare 2 in only ~33 seconds. This video has been met with skepticism because it does not seem possible that someone can reach this feat in such little time. The person in the video launches a “noob toob” or grenade launcher towards the other teams spawn point and gets an immediate 7 kills which triggers the first kill streak a harrier strike. Then he proceeds to launch the strike then launches the same shot again to attain another 4 more kills to get the 11 kill streak. He then starts the second kill streak reward that is a chopper gunner and completes his 25 kill streak to the nuke while in the gunner seat and ends with a total streak of 51 kills.
Do you think its real or fake, check out the video below and judge for yourself. I honestly don’t know.read more

The team over at ASCII has announced that they have a collection of all the Geocities sites that were even created. The team frantically started collecting Geocities sites shortly after Yahoo’s announcement that Geocities would be closing last year. They actually did this by faking a Googlebot user agent string to allow them to download the sites as fast as possible. Soon the team had pushed over 100 megabits a second to their archives.
The torrent file is a massive 900GB and will be available whenever they can get it up. The ASCII team is asking people that are interested to email email@example.com to subscribe to a list that will let you know when it is downloadable. Geocities will live on FOREVER!read more
A monopoly is defined as “the exclusive posssession or control of the supply or trade in a commodity or service” does Google fall under this definition? You decide.
Scores.org has recently released the graphic below that examines Google and other monopolistic companies throughout history. Google controls many services on the internet including Search, Maps, Video, and more. But how does Google determine where to place its products over others in search results? Do you think they are evenly matched or does Google place a heavier weight on its own products so they appear higher than others.
So is Google approaching that threshold? I would love to hear your opinion.
Look inside for the full graphic.read more
