Unfriended – A Horror Home Run At the Fantasia Festival

Do you love ghost stories? How about ghosts that’s out for vengeance? Well if that’s what you’re looking for then you’d definitely want to watch Unfriended.

UnfriendedThis movie was actually at first going to be called Offline but the crew deems it to be not so eye catchy then it was premiered last July 20, 2014 at the Fantasia Festival with it being released as Cybernatural but then they changed it again and here it is Unfriended. It was decided that this movie would have its wide theatrical release on April 17, 2015.

The trailer showed a video tape of a girl who looks very wasted. It was later revealed that the girl in the video is Laura Barns (Heather Sossaman), the most popular girl in her school and that she committed suicide, three days after her video was posted online due to humiliation. That all happened a year ago, prior to the present date of the actual movie. It was the day of her anniversary, and six of her classmates—who were always mean to her because she was Miss popular and they were well unpopular—have decided to talk to one another via Skype but they most definitely did not expect a seventh person to join them. And what’s more shocking is that this anonymous person is using Laura’s old account. This anonymous person also accused them that they know what really happened on April 9, 2013, the day Laura’s video was posted. This anonymous person threatened them for the truth and if someone logged out or stopped talking someone would die. As the chat progresses, the truth is slowly being revealed along other secrets that would test their friendship altogether. Can these six friends survive?
This movie isn’t just some horror film because the main theme of this storyline is bullying. Don’t tell me you haven’t been bullied, is a bully yourself or have seen someone be bullied in school because that’s just absurd. Every once in a while there most definitely have the bully/bullies and the bullied one in school.

Now the movie didn’t literally mean to scare the crap out of your bully or commit suicide then come back as a ghost. This story is for all bullies out there that they shouldn’t pick on someone because you might be pleasured by it but your victim, not so much. You not only give them scars physically but emotionally also. Now back to the story.
As you can see in the trailer, it didn’t have that much change in the scenery since it was said that they can’t log out but really throughout the movie, they freak out in front of the computer and there was even a time that they had to watch something gruesome happen to one of them. That’s the only flaw I saw so far but then again maybe the whole movie would give it poetically justice since it was highly praised by the critics who probably watched it at the Fantasia Festival.

Samsung Acquires LoopPay To Compete With Apple Pay

Samsung has acquired LoopPay, and it officially announced this information on Wednesday. The amount the tech industry giant paid for its acquisition of the company was not disclosed, however, the transaction has created speculation that Samsung may be backing this magnetic secure transaction technology in order to compete with Apple Pay and its reliance on NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.

LoopPay acquired by SamsungSamsung has not officially announced that it has any plans to integrate LoopPay’s technology into any mobile devices as of yet. LoopPay’s technology is presently available as a fob or add-on card which is attachable to a smartphone device or as part of a phone case.

The magnetic secure payment transaction technology of LoopPay is different from the NFC technology that Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus uses with Apple Pay. The retailers who utilize Apple Pay are required to install payment terminals that have been upgraded to use NFC in order to accept Apple Pay. Merchant terminals that are already being used usually have magnetic card readers that are compatible with LoopPay.

The Samsung company has been incorporating NFC in Samsung smartphones for the past 3 years in order to work with Google Wallet as well as other payment applications. Therefore, LoopPay is regarded as an alternative to the company’s present approach. Analysts have claimed that Samsung’s utilization of both technologies could help the company gain ground in mobile payments while NFC payment terminals become more popular in the United States.

Big name credit card companies such as MasterCard and Visa claim that in the U.S., the adoption of NFC is moving ahead in association with a movement towards EMV, “pin and chip” (also known as “smart”) credit and debit cards. Around half of the estimated 12 million U.S.-based payment terminals will be converted by the end of this year.

LoopPay will be able to mimic contactless transactions and it is easier for consumers than Apple Pay, in certain ways. It is expected that for 90% of U.S. retail locations to convert to NFC terminals, the process will take somewhere between 5 – 10 years.

New Product Ads Gives Retailers A New Way To Market To Facebook Users

Look out Google, Facebook’s ad system just got smarter. With the social media conglomerate’s new and improved product ads, the company now has a data advantage that could greatly increase its revenue.

facebook logoFacebook unveiled its plan for retailers to market their products to its 1.4 billion users by using their personal-interest and targeting information. These new product ads are Facebook’s version of the Google Shopping Ads. Google first released its ad system back in 2013 as Product Listing Ads and eventually changed the name to Google Shopping Ads. The ads appear as paid posts above search results that relate to retailer products and provide photos as well as prices of products for sale. They are much more visual than text-based search results and are now a profitable part of Google’s search business.

Facebook is now attempting to emulate the same type of success with the enormous amount of consumer data. The company’s product ads will allow retailers to focus on users of the social media site based on information such as musical preferences, clothing tastes and consumer location.

Tamara Gaffney, the principal analyst for Adobe Digital Index (ADI) claims that “Facebook has the best targeting capabilities.” She believes that the social network giant will take away some of the limelight from Google’s shopping ads.

Facebook has prioritized dynamic visuals, and not only with its new product ads; the entire design of its platform, promotes more pictures and videos. The primary reason behind the new ad system is because ADI’s research for the Q4 2014 revealed that advertisers are gravitating towards the creation of a Web shopping experience for consumers that is more image-based.

Both Bing and Yahoo also have a version of these ads, but right now they only control a small market share. Thus far, Shutterfly and Target are the only two known “test brands” for Facebook’s new product ads.

Once Upon A Time – Fairytale TV show Story

Once upon a time, where almost all fairytale stories start so what’s the difference with this TV show? Let me tell you now that the fairytale stories that you’ve heard of or have watch since you were young isn’t what it all seems.

Once Upon A time MermaidsIt all started with the hatred of the Evil Queen Regina (Lana Parilla) to her stepdaughter Snow White that she even asked the help of Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle), an evil sorcerer, to conjure a curse, a curse that so powerful it will rift of all the happy endings of everyone, everyone except the Evil Queen of course as her happy ending is to see Snow White miserable but alas every curse can be broken. Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and her husband Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) feeling responsible for their current predicament have tried to think of plans after plans for them to break this curse. Snow White who was pregnant then felt fear for her unborn child that she convinced Prince Charming to let her seek answer through Rumplestiltskin.

They were given an answer; a savior will break the curse which happens to be their baby. The curse was casted and all fairytale legends we know are swallowed by purple clouds to God knows where.

28 years later, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) who was revealed to have escaped the curse by a magical wardrobe was found by Henry Mills (Jared S. Gilmore), the son that she gave up for adoption 10 years ago. He brought her to Storybrooke, Maine, the town where the residents of the Enchanted Forest now resides.
Not so bad right? ECK WRONG! The twist to this story is that no one remembers who they were, they were given false identities and here’s the best part, they were kept frozen for the while 28 years. Now it’s up to Emma, with the aid of Henry and his Once Upon A Time book of fairytales that holds the key on how she will break the curse. And if you think that’s crazy how about Regina, the Evil Queen is also the one who adopted Henry. Conflict after conflict just happens to happen.

The show also shows us the past of our favorite fairy tale character’s past. You will see how the show made the original fairytale into somethingOnce upon a time misty town even more. Some of them are made from being all smooth sailing stories into one with a sad twist or things that you’ve never even predicted. The show not only revolves on the world of Storybrooke or the Enchanted Forest because in the second and third season, the story revolves around Neverland and the fourth season, you’ll never guess where, it’s Arendelle! Yup, they even included the fictional movie, Frozen.
This show is just getting better and better.

More fairy tale characters introduced, more twist ahead and you will definitely use that detective skills of yours because you just can’t stop on finding clues after clues, guessing what will happen and so much more. It’s not your cliché romantic show, it’s mixed with romance, angst, comedy, action, fantasy, and a lot more. It is now on its second half of season four which will premiere on Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

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.
