The Internet in Brief – 2/13/09February 13, 2010
- If you’re the kind of wretched person that reads Kevin Smith’s twitter, you know that he gets in pointless fights with people, like, once a week. This week, he’s raging against Southwest Airlines for kicking him off a flight for being too fat. To be honest, you don’t even have to click that link, just know that Kevin Smith got kicked off a flight for being too fat.
- You can apparently watch the Olympics on live stream, but only if you are a subscriber to a cable provider, which is Bull Shit. You can’t even get the stuff that’s on regular, non-cable TV on a stream. This is why you are losing $200 million on this fiasco, NBC. That and the whole Conan thing.
- The good news is that you can spend all that time you won’t be watching the Olympics playing a fairly decent in-browser reconstruction of Quake on QuakeLive.com. Everyone should learn from Id’s example here. In the department of essentially making culturally significant media publicly available, I mean, not in the making brown, nigh-unplayable Bioshock retreads.
- This is amazing and everything, but it’s still not going to get me to use Bing.
