What We Do in the Shadows – A Vampire Comedy

Horror comedies are a rare breed, but when they come along they will either be a huge hit, or a whimpering disappointment. Destined to go on to become cult hits forever. Ghostbusters certainly achieved the former back in 1984 and is still much loved to this day, by blending horror elements with comical characters. Shaun of the Dead followed suit in 2004, becoming the world’s first Rom-Zom-Com.

What We Do in the Shadows castEdgar Wright’s feature film directorial debut, after the cult favourite Spaced, perfectly blended the zombie horror genre with comedy. The vampire genre is up next and Taika Waititi’s What We Do in the Shadows is the first feature since Boy (2010). Co-written by Flight of the Conchords’ Jermaine Clement, the film follows three flatmates as they struggle to deal with modern life, paying bills and dealing with difficult housemates, and they all happen to be centuries old vampires.

Shot in a mockumentary style, like This is Spinal Tap, the film follows four centuries old flatmates; Viago, Deacon, Vladislav and Petyr as they struggle to adapt to modern life. Sharing a flat in the suburbs of Wellington, New Zealand, the film stars both Taika Waititi and Jermaine Clement, who previously worked on Eagle vs Shark (2007). Clement, who is one part of New Zealand’s fourth most popular folk duo, Flight of the Conchords, with Brett McKensie. Before it became a comedy hit on HBO in 2007, the comedy band was a popular BBC radio series. With the second season ending in 2009 with no further seasons, Flight of the Conchords are on permanent hiatus until a potential film or reunion tour happens. Joining Jermain Clement in What We Do in the Shadows is another Flight of the Conchords regular in New Zealand’s comic Rhys Darby as a werewolf called Anton.

Up until very recently, What We Do in the Shadows had great trouble with distribution within the United States. With only a limited release in the US, just two venues, it needed a Kickstarter campaign to increase distribution. Started in January, the campaign needed $400,000 in order to fund the incredible expenses required for distribution throughout the United States. This includes promotional material such as posters, trailers, advertising, publicity and of course the film reels themselves. Luckily, the target was achieved by 13th February and ensures the film was distributed around the whole of the US. The film was scheduled to be released on the 13th February in New York at Landmarks’ Sunshine Cinema and then on the West Coast in Los Angeles at the Arclight Cinemas/Hollywood. But with the target exceeded, What We Do in the Shadows can now

What We Do in the Shadows opened at the Sundance film festival in 2014, as well as being in the official selection of esteemed festivals such as SXSW, Berlin and Toronto film festivals. The film also was awarded the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival in 2014. The film has also done well outside the festival circuit by being warmly received by most critics with the UK’s The Guardian’s resident film critic Peter Bradshaw describing it as one of the best comedies of the year.

The US wide release of What We Do in the Shadows is set for March this year and is available worldwide.

Andrew Watts’ Perception On Social Media Websites

Many people are now interested on the write-ups that was made by a real teenager – Andrew Watts – regarding social networking sites. This is now one of the most trending news commentary all over the world, because it was written from the point of view of the user and not through a third person interpretation by the mainstream media – who for all intents and purposes – work for the social media companies themselves.

Andrew Watts sitting on a benchA 19-year old boy named Andrew Watts who wrote his comprehensive ideas about the social apps based on how he apprehends it was really just an innocent take on the subject matter, as he tried to show to his friends about the benefits and disadvantages of social media sites. But it soon became one of the most read article on the internet by late February 2015 and for a good reason. The main difference between Watts’ article and the heavily marketed reviews about social media is that his was a more honest one, and there’s nothing like hearing the truth from someone who isn’t paid to talk about businesses, products or services!

His thoughts on social media demonstrate how apps like Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and others work basically and how it can be an inconvenient thing to use, simply because of peer pressure. He mentioned the harsh reality of the hardwired society that we live in now and what no one has ever talked about before – social pressure to have an online presence when in reality, you really don’t have to if you didn’t want to. It strips away your freedom to be different, to be independent because social media is “oh so cool” these days! Based on his write-ups, he stated that if Facebook gets all the good and bad photos then Instagram is more of a selective one or in layman’s terms – a dishonest way of showing your beauty to the world, which essentially creates a certain type of insecurity and character altogether.Andrew Watts

Of course you do understand that you can do like 20 – 40 different things everyday but now you have become preoccupied with social media instead of having a time to reflect on yourself and meditate in order to be at peace. This more than anything is what Watts’ wanted to say in his review, it’s okay to have Facebook or Twitter or Instagram but it’s also okay to unplug from them for a couple of hours to enjoy quality time with your family and friends as well as yourself.

Andrew Watts never anticipated that his write-ups would trend over social media, but the thing is that his thoughts explains truly how social apps work. An honest opinion that is enough to trigger the attention of several people to read on it. As of this time many of the readers gave their good complement, some of them overreacted, and some of them expressed their negative feelings. And many were asking Andrew’s idea about other things related to his composition.

Japan’s New Version of Wearable Technology is Also Edible: Wearable Bananas and Tomatos

There seems to be a new breed of wearable devices and these are fruit-based. Forget the Apple Watch, these new wearable gadgets are banana and a tomato, and rumor has it that they are also edible (to an extent).

Edible wearable bananaThe Fitbit device counts how many steps you take and tracks your heart rate, but it cannot tell you when you need to eat a banana nor can it feed you a tomato. However, these newly revealed devices that were both inspired by and designed for the 2015 Tokyo Marathon in Japan apparently can.

A company called Kagome, which is a Japanese ketchup maker, created an 18-pound backpack that dispenses tomatoes. The gadget is a humanoid robot with a tomato head that literally straddles the shoulders of a runner and has an arm that comes down on command and “dispenses” tomatoes to the mouth of the runner.

A spokesperson from Kagome told the Wall Street Journal that the reason why it chose tomatoes is because they contain a high concentration of nutrients such as citric and amino acids and beta-carotene. They are also easier to access and consume than bananas are, which are a popular snack for runners in a marathon who need a quick energy boost.

Dole’s Japanese division is also stepping out into the wearables market as well. Dole, which is the biggest fruit and veggie company in the world, has introduced its edible wearable banana.

The wearable banana device features a small LED screen and sensors are embedded inside its peel. The peel is then stitched back together. The device measures race time and heart rate and it also displays encouragement tweets. It also advises runners when their potassium levels need to be recharged by eating more bananas.

Dole has sponsored the Tokyo Marathon for a number of years and in the past, it has handed out bananas with times and stats printed on their peels. This year, out of the 30,000 race participants, 2 of them will be able to wear the smart bananas on their wrists while they run in the marathon. An employee of the Kagome company will wear the tomato dispenser during the 5-kilometer fun run on Saturday. On Sunday, a runner sponsored by Kagome will wear a smaller version of the same product.

New AT&T Blackberry Classic And Passport Smartphones Will Be Made Available On 2/20/2015

In the past 6 months, BlackBerry has released 2 new business smartphones. However, there has not been any affordable way for U.S. consumers to get their hands on one—until now.

New AT&T Blackberry Classic And Passport Smartphones Will Be Made Available On 2:20:2015The BlackBerry Classic and the BlackBerry Passport have arrived on the AT&T network as of Friday, February 20th. The tech industry giant is the first primary U.S. smartphone company to offer either BlackBerry smartphone for a promotional price whenever a customer signs up for a 2-year contract agreement. The Passport is being offered for $200 on contract and the Classic is being offered at $50.

The new AT&T BlackBerry smartphones are the only up-to-date smartphones on the AT&T network that feature physical QWERTY keyboards. For many, typing on a physical keyboard might not be as speedy as using a touchscreen device; however, it can be a good way for business consumers to avoid making typographical errors in their text and/or email replies. Both phones also include BlackBerry security features such as built-in messaging and email encryption.

The new BlackBerry Passport features a unique square display designed to give its users more horizontal screen space than most other smartphones. This can be an ideal feature for those who enjoy performing tasks that are screen-sensitive such as the examination of larger documents or spreadsheet editing. The combination of the wider display and the physical keyboard make the Passport a good smartphone option for business users.

The Blackberry Classic is designed more like the old BlackBerry Bold 9900. It has a smaller 3.5-inch display and a physical keyboard. It offers many of the same features as the Passport, but with the smaller screen size.

Lenovo Apologizes For Shipping Laptops With Pre-Installed Adware

The Lenovo Group Ltd issued an official apology statement to its customers and is working to help Lenovo computer users remove a pre-installed software that is capable of exposing the users to hacking attacks and/or unauthorized monitoring of user activity.

Lenovo IdeapadLenovo admitted that is was a mistake on the computer conglomerate’s behalf when it had the software created by a company called Superfish preloaded onto its machines. The company posted information and links on its Twitter account with instructions on how to go about removing the potentially harmful adware.

Lenovo’s Twitter posts were a response to a flood of denigration from specialists in cyber security concerning the Superfish software’s ability to monitor online activities and then propose advertisements based on the information that Lenovo computer users may be viewing. The Superfish adware technology basically severs the encryption between internet browsers and e-commerce, banking, and other sites that may contain sensitive and/or private information. This could potentially expose the computers to hacking.

The Superfish software utilizes what are called image-recognition algorithms to see where computer users point on their monitor screens and then proposes adverts based on the images that the users are viewing. The software was pre-installed on some of the Lenovo computer models that were sold and shipped worldwide between September and December of 2014. It was turned off in January of this year after the Lenovo company received a flood of complaints from its users.

Lenovo’s chief technology officer, Peter Hortensius claims that the company admits to “messing up badly,” and that Lenovo is not trying to hide from the problem, and it is owning up to it and will rectify the situation.

The Superfish company claimed in its own statement that its software is “completely transparent” in what it does and that users were never vulnerable in any way.

Apparently, Lenovo was paid a very minor amount of compensation to include the software on their computers and the goal was to improve the experience of Lenovo computer users.

Lenovo claims that the Superfish software was only installed on certain laptop models and not on any ThinkPad notebooks, desktops or smartphones.
