Kim Dotcom asks Mr. President a few questions

Le 10 March 2014, 08:05 dans Humeurs 0

Kim Dotcom is stuck in his luxury mansion under orders from authorities, but that hasn’t stopped him from producing a catchy music video full of political remarks directed at U.S. President Barack Obama.

In the music video, Dotcom asserted that Hollywood is steering the government to create various legislations aimed at internet censorship. Dotcom has a “dream” similar to Dr. Martin Luther King, one in which innovations won’t be stifled by “copyrights.”

“There needs to be a dialog leading to solutions. Aggression and destruction will hurt the US economy. The innovators of tomorrow will avoid doing business in the US. Shutting down one of the leading cloud storage sites, ignoring due process, the rule of law and the constitutional rights of our users is not the way to go,” Dotcom told Torrent Freak.

Dotcom, founder of the once popular file-sharing site Megaupload, is currently facing extradition to the United States.

Without further ado, Dotcoms “Mr. President.”

Kids want iPad for Christmas; good luck Santa!

Le 10 March 2014, 08:05 dans Humeurs 0

If you believed in Santa (maybe you still do now) when you were a kid, then perhaps you may also remember the letters which you wrote in details telling Santa how good you were and that all you wanted was a Pentium II. Okay, maybe just a few of us wanted a processor back then as a kid, but kids in this day and age want gadgets. Not just any gadgets mind you, but toys from the most expensive brand.


A survey conducted by Nielsen Wire has revealed that 48% of U.S. kids aged 6-12 intend to ‘buy’ an iPad within the next 6 months. Second on the wish list is Nintendo’s latest Wii U game console, followed closely by three other Apple products—the iPod Touch, iPad mini, and iPhone.

Consumers 13 years of age and up also have the iPad as their top choice of gizmos to buy within the next 6 months. However, the only other Apple product to make the top 5 most wanted list for this age group is the iPhone. Still, the Apple brand dominates the American culture as kids ages 6 to 60 want in on the Apple bobbing this holiday season.

Tablets other than the iPad are also coveted tech toys, but clearly they’re not as popular as the iPad among kids 6-12. The iPad, too, is more popular among mature consumers (13+), although older folks are more inclined to consider an iPad alternative.

If Santa outsourced his manufacturing, Apple (and by extension Foxconn) would probably be able to fulfill most of the requests of the good little boys and girls, but even Santa may not have the budget to leave an iPad under every Christmas tree.
