Insert cheesy Wave pun here May 29, 2009

Google WaveGoogle’s up to their crazy antics again. This time, they’re taking the concepts of online collaboration and instant messaging and combining them all into one. Think Google Docs and Gmail/Google Talk all in one or something as equally insane. As Google would tell you:

A “wave” is equal parts conversation and document, where people can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

I could explain all the insane features, but I think the developers would do a better job. In fact, they do it in a 1h:20m video. Hint: Skip to 1:12:44 for some really crazy stuff.

You can also sign up to be a beta tester, or just be notified when they’re ready to release the Wave. The full video and features and all that fancy stuff can be found on Google’s official Wave site.

So Winter has barely started and Nike is already got their designs ready for Spring. The Dunk family has come quite a ways and have been paid particular attention to bring them the same popularity as the Air Force 1s. This coming season we see a lot of cool colourways and material combination uses in the high mid and low variations. New to this batch is the use of full pattern prints. There seems to be something for everyone! Dunks all around! Hit the jump for more!

Oh Keanu, We Always Knew You Weren’t Really Human… November 29, 2008

So to talk about a movie that IS being released on  December 12, 2008, we look towards Keanu Reeves’ next film; The Day the Earth Stood Still. This film is a remake of the 1951 movie directed by Robert Wise and starring Michael Rennie. Both the 2008 and 1951 films are based off of Harry Bates’ short story “Farewell to the Master“. Keanu will be playing the part of a visitor from outer space. you can read the synopsis of the story HERE

While the 1951 movie used a man dressed as a robot to play the part of Gort, Klattu’s (Keanu Reeves) travelling companion, who is also “a member of a race of super-robot enforcers invented to keep the peace of the galaxy and will destroy the Earth if provoked”; the 2008 film looks to be abit more in line with following the original short story’s ideas.  Using today’s technology we can look forward to Gort being a big black cloud of dust and what not that is able to destroy buildings, etc. Can anyone say Lost

Anyways, haven’t read the book yet, but you can check out the trailer:
