Noisecast Roundup 10.24.2011

*knock knock* Is anyone there? Hey guys, what’s good? It’s time for another roundup because, well, I don’t know why. I guess I do this for your approval, your love. I’m an attention whore and I demand to be adored. Do you want to know how I got these emotional scars? My father was a drinker… and a fiend. One night, he comes home crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not… one… bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me, and he says, “Why so serious? He comes at me with the knife – “why so serious?” sticks the blade in my mouth – “let’s put a smile on that face! And… my mom jumps up and they both yell “SIKE!” I haven’t been the same since. Also, I don’t have a father. 

MSFT Has Licensing Deal with 50% of Android Manufacturers.

Yeah, that joke I made before doesn’t seem so funny anymore, now does it? No longer Google Android, but Microsoft Android. The worst part of this? Microsoft probably makes more money from Android than Google does. Bahahaha!

What The F-CK? Another Fallen Geek Hero.

John McCarthy, the creator of Lisp has passed. This year has taken the godfather of of Apple, C and Unix, Lisp, EBooks… No one is safe. I for one am calling a moratorium on death. Can we please take a few celebrities of the Jersey Shore persuasion instead? Not that I wish death on anyone, but there is an account that death keeps and I’d rather it stop withdrawing from the geek account, just for a few months.

Cash Did To Wikileaks What The Forces Of The World Couldn’t.

Don’t ever doubt the importance and power of money. At the end of the day, Goliath need no longer face off against David, he merely needs to cut off David’s pocket money. Cash rules everything, and at the end of the day, if you can’t stay hidden in the dark because someone’s shining a light at you, just make a shade out of money… preferably the money of the guy shining the light. Assange is still a prick, but a necessary prick.

Netflix Loses Fans While Still Beating Financial Expectations.

Netflix lost 800,000 subscribers but still has over 21 million subscribers and grew its revenues by oodles. It beat all street expectations. I said it before, calm the hell down. Netflix didn’t shoot itself in the foot, it merely chose its most productive customers. It made a tough business choice, one it’s done before and it might still fail, but I’m entitled to bet on Netflix. Damnable whining babies. They still get extraordinary value from it, but the poor pansy babies are throwing a damn fit over what? Over getting slightly less of the aforementioned “more value?” Jerks. Shut up.

Anonymous Takes Down Pedophile Site.

This group seems to have a split personality. On top of the meaningless shenanigans, they occasionally do something cool, like storm darknet and pwn pedophiles. Anonymous has declared war but… unveiling their meaningless usernames (only a few) and knocking down their favorite sites multiple times (implying that they came back up) is… well… pointless. Take these asshats down for real, stop with the childish games. cut them down, dox them, and feed their petulant moral carcasses to the feds. Then you can go back to playing patty-cake with the various law enforcement groups and bank executives you’re boning. Hang in there, anonymous.

Well, there you have it for the night. Tune in tomorrow for more of the news that we arbitrarily decide you deserve to know. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll show some tits.
