WinPho 7 Devices for Verizon for the Holidays?

WinPho 7 Devices for Verizon for the Holidays?

Microsoft's been on a Tweet craze lately. After announcing that the 'Series' from 'Windows Phone 7 Series' will be dropped, they dropped an announcement on their Twitter saying Verizon customers should expect WinPho 7 devices for the holidays with more coming in 2011.

#WP7 devices will be rolling into Verizon stores this holiday season and more will arrive in early 2011!

Since then, they have made another announcement saying,

Verizon is a valued partner and we look forward to seeing Windows Phone 7 devices in their stores in 2011.

Hmm. Those sound oddly similar but oddly different at the same time. The original Tweet hasn't been pulled but this does raise yet another question with what Microsoft plans to do with WinPho 7. I'd love to see a CDMA WinPho 7 device on Sprint, though!

Well, for the first time in a long time, one of our rumors turned out to be correct as this week Hulu Plus announced it was out, available and less than $10/month. That's right, you can now have the awesome that is Hulu Plus for only $7.99/month.

Portal 2 Delayed - Again

<i>Portal 2</i> Delayed - Again

Today I have the misfortune of being the bearer of bad but not unexpected news - Portal 2 has been delayed again. Its most recent planned release date was February 9, 2011. Now we find out that we will not get the pleasure of playing Co-op Portal until April 20, 2011. Only a 2 month delay, but we all know how this works with Valve. Do any of you actually expect to see Half-Life 2: Episode 3?

Because Valve likes to keep their fans emotionally confused, they released this statement to announce the delay:

This two month slip not only marks the shortest delay in Valve's proud tradition of delays, it represents the approaching convergence of Valve Time and Real Time. Though this convergence spells doom for humanity, it will not affect the new Portal 2 release date.

Thanks for driving us totally mad, Valve.

The Internet says - Kitten > Lord

The Internet says - Kitten > Lord

Now that we have discussed how Tumblr stays around, the next topic is why. It bills itself as a blogging site but in reality it tends to lend itself to being very 4chan. In fact, recently there has been a war building between the anti-social 4channers and the anti-social tumblrs. Sounds thrilling, eh?

Well, it turns out to have been very interesting. You're probably asking yourself, "How is that possible?" The answer is simple - Tumblr seems to have won. Let me explain. Both sites seem to be populated by teenage hackers in their parents basements, but 4chan has several years of recruiting their members ahead of Tumblr. However, after Tumblr users have seemingly stolen Internet memes from 4chan, things have gone crazy.

To find out how crazy, hit the break.
