The New Angelina Jolie Meme

Things sure move fast in webtime. It was just two days ago at the Oscar telecast that Angelina Jolie made waves striking a pose in a leg-bearing dress. There have been numerous copycats since then.

Gadget of the Week: Magnetic Retainer

From Engadget: a company is showing off a magnetic retainer that will allow the user to control video games with his tongue. (I would say "his or her" tongue, but who are we kidding?)

You'll be hearing this conversation a lot in households all over the world: "Son, I don't want you touching another videogame until your homework is done."

Son: "No problem, mom."

Some Videos in Honor of the Phantom Menace 3D

I wouldn't say this is one of the must see films of the year, but if you want to get in the mood . . .

More on the Tesla Model X and its "falcon doors"

Tesla really, really wants you to know the Model X's doors can work in close confines, so they released the video below. I believe the music is a fan accoutrement.

If Tesla ever does release the Model X, I think I found a spokesperson for them.

Tesla Model X to have "Falcon Doors"

Tesla's follow up to the Model S, the Model X (crossover) was teased today with a release of this picture which shows a hint of the X's "falcon doors". I'm guessing that the Model X was given Falcon doors to distinguish Tesla from the failed Delorean company. Tesla has the Falcon, Delorean was the Snowman.

Chicago Auto Show:
The Redesigned 2013 Buick Acadia - Huh?

Here's a picture of the "redesigned", new for 2013 GMC Acadia. The Acadia is one of GM's successful, 3-row "Lambda" crossovers that debuted originally 6 years ago. This would mean under normal circumstances that a comprehensive redesign would ordinarily be expected. This seems to be substantially less than that.

From the "You can't trust Canadians, anyway" file:
Brock University: Racists and Conservatives Tend to Be Less Intelligent

Researchers from Brock University in Ontario, Canada have released a study which concludes that people of lower intelligence tend to be more prejudiced, and gravitate to conservative and racist ideologies. What do those pinko nutjobs know anyway coming from a college named after the biggest doofus in the Pokemon cartoons.
