Spielberg + Lincoln + Google = what just happened?

So Spielberg is doing an Abraham Lincoln movie now. Surprisingly looks really good. Tommy Lee Jones adds to the awesomeness. The Monday impressive past is that they used Google+ to market it. Teaser trailer plus Q and A live? Sold.

Look on Monster, Dice or LinkedIn for " Social Media". You'll find jobs like Social Media Marketing Manager and similar positions. Social Media is the future of advertising, like it or not. It just works better. It's more targeted toward its intended audience and the biggest part is... you don't have to suffer through it if you know you have no interest in whatever is on screen.

Check it out :)

Good to see my faith was not misplaced!

HTC has announced their Windows Phone 8 offerings. Woohoo! As an avid HTC fanboy, I approve. The phones look sexy as hell too. Dual core 1.5ghz, 1080p video, 2.1mp front camera... all the goodness you'd expect out of HTC. The only caveat is the lack of an expansion slot. That's very Apple-ish. However, nowadays it's all about the cloud. The skydrive is awful spiffy too, so lets see how they integrate. If they allow side-loading, I'll be content. All in all, it looks like a boss.

Check out Engadget's spec comparison and see how they add up. They're all awesome, so you really can't go wrong.

So, suck it Apple :)

Borderlands 2 release party!

So, I found my way into the Gearbox Borderlands 2 release party! I'm stoked I've never been to a release party before. So I'll certainly have commentary for the whole thing on my twitter @distantgeek

Should be a blast, hopefully I'll win a copy, meet some people, and other shenanigans.
