Total Recall: GONE WILD!

This may have made even Arnold blush… I’m not sure I mind that much, but it very well could be too far?

Yes, you can clearly see a penis.

From this Cnn.com article:

Privacy advocates plan to call on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to suspend use of “whole-body imaging,” the airport security technology that critics say performs “a virtual strip search” and produces “naked” pictures of passengers, CNN has learned.

What Would Arnold Do?

Media 360

As television users embrace the adfree environment with TiVo, more premium content, while broadcasters scramble to figure out how to add more ads that are un-“zappable” etc- Music listeners will begin to embrace the ad filled environment in exchange for free content. While labels and big-wigs scramble to figure out the best way to implement. But commercials during streaming? That’s hardly original… isn’t that just what (terrestrial) radio does?

I guess tried and true is what they’re aiming for.

What about required ad viewing during downloads- that will only last as long as people have speeds <T1, or maybe have mandatory “holding” periods like MegaUpload and other sites do, you can pay for VIP access to skip… but what stops people from reposting on their own server?

You could also reward people for looking at ads with bonus content… but that only goes so far too.

What is the world to do?

Watch "City of God" next time you're home sick

A foreign, coming of age, gang violence, photojournalism, justice, good cinematographic film, with 90% of the actors coming right off the streets of Brazil.

It's long and since your sick you probably aren't going anywhere. it's a great movie, but not the best date movie and not one to watch with your antsy friend because it will be distracting and this movie requires your full attention. The story telling is great and overall its pretty epic. It's also got great sound design and since your ears might be stuffy, you'll probably have to turn it up a bit too, which is fine, because it sounds good that way.
