What a day. I’m sure I should be writing about the antenna glitch in the new iPhones (Steve Jobs: “Don’t hold it like that.”) or the 3 million iPads sold in under three months (keeping up the month one trend), but I’m kinda ambivalent. You see, my hard drive crashed yesterday, the computer doctor was unable to retrieve a single drop of data (back up your machines!! now!!), and I need something light to get my mind off of the matter. So from the Devuvuzelator to Dot-XXX Domains, I’ve rounded up a few of the most smile-inducing stories on the Internet. They made me smile. Hopefully, they will do the same for you.
Hallelujah, the Devuvuzelator is here!! Someone’s concocted some software that’ll filter out that godforsaken vuvuzela drone making me feel like I’m in an M. Night Shyamalan movie every time I turn on the World Cup. Whoever invented it deserves a medal of valor.
Though it’s not about the most red-hot game of the day, and though reader comments suggest it’s more hype than a review, this article on the meteoric rise of the silly game Doodle Jump boosted my serotonin. Though maybe that was just the name Doodle Jump. You can download Doodle Jump yourself here: Doodle Jump (iOS), Doodle Jump (Android)
The Fight Against Dot-XXX Domains
Not only is my sense of humor simple enough to laugh at “doodle jump,” but it’s also juvenile enough to get a kick out of dot-xxx domains. Mostly, however, I’m flashing my pearly whites because the controversy around dot-xxx domains is bringing people from both the religious and the pornographic variety together. Both religious groups and the adult entertainment industries are coming together to oppose dot-xxx domains. Unity! Harmony! Orgy?!
