"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Just a few days after Sony announced that their Playstation Network Database of customers may be susceptible to credit card fraud after Hackers dismantled their entire operations, as many as 2.2 Million Credit Card accounts and their related information are up for grabs on the black market.
In addition to this, many Playstation Network customers have been contacting Sony, to report fraudulent activity had been executed on their accounts, with transactions being made from purchasing airline tickets, to large purchases including flat screens and laptop computers.
We’re about to see a whole wave of activity from these Hackers, but guaranteed… they will be caught, and they will end up serving a whole lot more time than they had anticipated, making anything they did clearly not worth the risk.
2.2 Million counts of credit card fraud is not something you would want on your record, or to have to try and fight out in court. You will never again see the light of day
It will be interesting to see how the absence of Megan Fox will impact Box-Office numbers for the blockbuster franchise.
I guess we will have to wait till July 1st, 2011 to see the results. Only then, will we truly understand Megan Fox’s X-Factor… or shall I say the Fox-Factor
I will tell you this. When we first learned of Megan Fox‘s full on portrait of Marilyn Monroe on her right forearm, we all probably wondered, “Why in the heck would you do that?“. I am a firm believer that every physical occurrence has a spiritual occurrence attached to it. So while Megan Fox threw the face of Marilyn Monroe on her arm, she actually impacted her own life spiritually.
It seems like a strange choice to make, especially if you’re someone like Megan Fox who has the ability to become an iconic legend in her own way and by her own means. So why would you have an image of someone else in plain view, so that whenever someone sees you, they always think of someone else… Even if it is someone considered the greatest female sex symbol of all time, in the end, you are detracting away from yourself, and following in someone’s shadow for all your days.
In addition, I don’t know how comfortable I would be if the person I had tattooed on my arm tragically died from an alleged drug overdose (speculation continues to this day). I would probablybe afraid that just keeping her face on my arm might cause me to share in the same fate… Sorta like a “Laws Of Attraction” type deal… ya know, as in “The Secret“. In the end, I guess even Megan realized the folly of her ways. She probably got tired of gigs that would require make-up to cover up her tattoo. She also probably got tired of seeing Marilyn herself in her own pics that would surface all over the web.
Either which way, it looks like Megan has finally gotten the picture… by finally getting rid of the picture. She has been seen recently with her Marilyn Monroe tattoo, noticeably lighter, as it looks like she’s trying to have the tattoo slowly removed.
I give you props Megan. You finally realized that in order to become your own legendary person, you have to make sure you yourself are the sole focus of everyone’s attention.
Besides, your real face is a lot hotter than ink anyway, that is of course, your plastic surgery free face.
There are some mysterious videos surfacing on YouTube and starting to quickly go viral, as the videos are being copied by other user profiles and spreading, of someone protraying Hugo Weaving’s character of “V” from “V for Vendetta“, only he addresses the state of our current world. The videos are under the YouTube profile “VideoForVanquish“, the most recent video urging the public to purchase physical silver to help take power out of J.P. Morgan Chase, and its connection to the Federal Reserve.
Nobody knows who’s putting these videos out, and there’s been about 4 so far. Rumors around the streets of Hollywood is that it’s a celebrity who’s also a 9/11 conspiracy theorist. I doubt its Jesse Ventura, and even though he’s jobless right now, I also doubt it’s Charlie Sheen.
Check out these videos and the videos on the profile “VideoForVanquish” and tell me what you think.
Pretty intense shizz.
Early estimates show that today’s Royal Wedding for Prince William and Kate Middleton may have been viewed as many as 3 Billion people around the world. This shows the advancement in mass media technologies as the wedding for Prince Charles and Princess Diana, nearly 30 years ago on July 29th, 1981 was viewed by 750 Million, showing today’s wedding to be viewed by 4 times as many people.
There was an estimated 20 million people who viewed the wedding in the United Kingdom, and it is said that about 400 Million people viewed the wedding around the world via the world wide web. That’s huge and more than the population of the entire United States.
And being that the wedding was viewed by nearly 1 out of every 2 people in this world, their first kiss may have been the most viewed kiss in world history.
It’s the final chapter for the greatest boy wizard who ever lived.
The official trailer for the eighth and final “Harry Potter” film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two” has been released, and like the book, it’s jam-packed with epic action and drama. Good wizards take on the practitioners of the Dark Arts as Harry fulfills his destiny and takes on his nemesis Voldemort.
Breathtaking CGI, deep and rich colors and a feeling of something larger than life pervade the trailer; the entire film hits theaters July 15th.
In what will be his first return to the film world after his stint as Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger will return to the big screen in the role that made him a household name, as the Terminator. The film is currently being pitched to film companies by CAA (Commercial Artists Agency) on behalf of a hedge fund based in San Diego, that bought the rights to the Terminator franchise in a bankruptcy auction.
The latest installment of the franchise will be directed by “Fast Five” Director Justin Lin. It looks like Justin will be going from Fast Five to “T5” as this will also be the fifth film in the franchise. The first 2 films were directed by James Cameron and “T2″ was hugely successful and brought in over $500 Million worldwide.
Arnold also starred in Terminator 3, “Rise of The Machines” but was physically absent from “Terminator: Salvation” starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington, aside from a brief cameo of a superimposed Arnold face.
We just better hope Arnold hits the gym soon, cause if you haven’t seen recent photos of dude on the beach, his 62 year old frame is definitely not holding up as well as you would have thought it would.
The White iPhone 4 will be available tomorrow, April 28th, at all Apple retailers and AT&T and Verizon stores. After months of anticipation, Apple decided to announce the release of the phone just a day before it is made available.
Suggested retail price will be $199 for a 16gb version and $299 for a 32gb version.
Get ready for even more long lines.
That’s if our world even survives that long.
Nokia announced that it will be letting go of 7,000 jobs, 4,000 direct jobs from their company worldwide, and 3,000 jobs will be transferred to outsourcing and consulting firm, Accenture.
While Nokia was at one era a favorite amongst standard handheld cell phones, they have seen a dramatic drop in their market share, as it has lagged behind in the Smartphone industry as dominated by Apple’s iPhone and Blackberry.
Nokia has also seen their Symbian system as far less popular than the Android operating system by Google, but has recently signed a deal with Microsoft and will start producing Smartphones with their Operating System.
This decision to cut 7,000 jobs was deemed as necessary by the company in order to make the head way it needed into the Smartphone market. Considering that Smartphones are the standard in cell phones these days, I’m pretty sure Nokia’s decision to do this was do or die.
In the worst outage suffered by the Sony Playstation 3 Network since 2006, Sony has had to shut down its Playstation Network and Qriocity music service since the evening of April 20th, after revealing an “external intrusion” that was malicious.
The shutdown affects some 77 Million gamers who have way too much time on their hands and play war and fantasy role playing games with other players from all over the world. The United States has some 36 Million PS3 gamers online, with Europe in at 32 Million and Asia comprising 9 Million of the total, mainly in earthquake stricken Japan where Sony is Headquartered.
At first it seemed a security breach that just caused the network to shut down. But now the heads of Sony fear the possibility that credit card information belonging to its 77 Million users may in fact be stolen. From what is reported, it is still too early to tell, but it is definitely something the company has not ruled out.
The organization known as “Anonymous” which has targeted Hustler Magazine, Gene Simmons and of course the Church of Scientology, was originally thought to be the culprit behind the attack, but has denied any involvement in the incident.
The breach could possibly cost the company Billions of dollars. The attack also comes at a bad time for Sony as it just released “SOCOM 4” which is one of Sony’s biggest online game franchises. The outage is also giving an edge to Microsoft’s XBox gaming platform. Microsoft requires a $60 a year membership for their network, but Sony’s is free of charge. While that may help Sony with having problems of refunding membership costs, it will have little consolation to those who use their PS3′s to access services such as Netflix, Vudu or Blockbuster Online.
Sony said the 3-digit security code information located on the back of customer credit cards has not been stolen, hopefully making it difficult for fraud criminals to use customer credit lines.
A note leaked onto thee internet this week, alleged to have been sourced from the scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland claiming that they have found the elusive Higgs Boson Particle, the elementary particle that is theorized to lend mass to all matter, giving it the nickname, “The God Particle“. The existence of the God particle has, at least possibly up until now, exists only in theory, postulated to solve the inconsistencies in theoretical physics.
The search for this particle is the main reason behind the conception and creation of the LHC, which is the world’s largest particle collider, primarily built and funded by European countries. It is an underground circular tunnel, 17 miles in circumference, and approximately 600 feet below the Franco-Swiss border in Geneva, Switzerland. It’s beginnings received much controversy and opposition from critics that believed that smashing protons into each other at nearly 100% the Speed of Light could create small Black Holes that would eventually lead to the destruction of our world. Regardless of this contention, those that supported the project believed it could lead scientists to understanding the fundamental roots of the existence of our universe and how all was formed and created.
While nothing is yet confirmed, the success of discovering the God Particle still remains uncertain. I also wouldn’t doubt that perhaps the buzz of a rumor could be used deceptively, to deceive the public into believing in the success of the LHC, or perhaps as pursuit of further funding.
What I do know is this. We are way too ahead of ourselves. Particle Accelerators, in my opinion are crossing over into dangerous territory, much like the Nuclear Reactors that are housed all over the world, and also responsible from the current soon to be global crisis from the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan. If we had to build a $10 Billion Dollar underground tunnel, causing particles to act in a way they are not meant, then we definitely weren’t meant to find the God particle in the first place. When it comes to all reactions of this nature, at the subatomic level, you are starting a process that may not end. These are the same reasons why even spent fuel rods are a huge radiation risk for months, even years, requiring the supervision and care that easily failed in a time of disaster such as the March 11th Earthquake and Tsunami.
One day, the energy created in one of their tests will result in a failure, of which the consequences may be catastrophic.
