Well, after Bill Gates appearance on the Today Show, this story has been making the rounds on all the tech sites. He was there to show of the Microsoft Surface. Basically an interactive table. I am not using the term basically to trivilaize the product, as it is pretty cool. I would go on to explain what it can do, but watch the video for yourself.

Now, if this table can do all of these things reliably, how much would you be willing to pay?

The dead include the Estrada, a Wendy’s employee, along with three other daughters Maria Teresa Estrada, Janet Frayre and Magaly Frayreaged.

The bodies were discovered by the woman’s sister who lives across the street. She became concerned after she did not show up for work. The woman’s estranged husband has been questioned by officials, but is not considered a suspect. The sheriff said the hangings appeared to be murder-suicide because the trailer’s doors were locked from the inside and a relative said the woman had been depressed.

Dead End Drive-In takes place when society is at the brink of a complete upheaval akin to the society seen in another Australian film, Mad Max. A society that has just about collapsed but still being held together – barely – by government officials and law enforcement. Prospects look bleak for the youth, as more and more are choosing to become part of the problem rather than part of a solution. One particular avenue some of these kids decide to travel is to join roving gangs called Car Boys. These gangs stalk the cityscape, fighting law enforcement and tow truck drivers all in the desire to steal all the usable parts from cars to build their own, including stripping cars immediately after they have been involved in an accident. With society at the brink of anarchy and crime escalating out of control, the government has initiated a rather unusual program to battle the phenomena.…

Fleur Brown, winner of the European Gang Bang trophy after having sex with 466 men within four-and-a-half hours, was caught as she negotiated selling the girl for sex to a reporter posing as a rich businessman. She intended to use the money to buy a car.

The 13-year-old girl in question once played Brown in a film about her life. Brown, a confessed crack addict, not only supplied the girl with drugs, but also told undercver officers that the girl was willing to lose her virginity, try anal sex, and was ok with the “client” not using a condom.

Judge Timothy King stated:

“Since December 18th and 19th, 2004, there seems to have been a rethink by you in the way you were leading your life. In the past not only were you blinded by the drug but also the type of work you were undertaking. Your life appears to have changed substantially. You have managed by your efforts to put behind you your drug habits.”

Instead of the possible 14-year sentence she could have recieved, she was given a 12-month suspended sentence.…

H.P. Lovecraft fans have always lamented at the absence of any faithful, good adaptations of Lovecraft’s work. Sure, there have been notable films that were inspired by Lovecraft’s writings, but there has yet to be a film that accurately and faithfully took an H.P. Lovecraft story from the page to the screen. That is until now. With The Call of Cthulhu, The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society have created a film that any other H.P. Lovecraft films should be judged. What is even more amazing is that the film was painstakingly created to look as if it had been made in the 1920s. It is black and white and silent (complete with title cards). It is also the best H.P. Lovecraft adaptation to date.…

Woman Raped After Crash; Arrest Made

May 23, 2007 at 10:07 am by  

Triquero Terrell

Cincinnati – On Oct 13th, a young woman was driving down the 3600 block of Blue Rock Road when she was hit from behind by another driver. Both drivers proceeded to pull into a nearby parking lot. The other driver got out of his car, slapped the cell phone out of the young womans hand, beat her unconscience and then raped her.

In April, Triquero Terrell, 26, was arrested on a contempt warrant involving a child support case. A detective noticed that Terrel resembled a sketch made in the October rape case and immediately obtained a DNA swab. The tests have now come back as a match to the rapist in the “bump and run” attack. Terrel’s bond has been set at $2 million and he has been charged with kidnapping and rape.

Just a reminder to you lone female drivers to think twice before pulling over for strangers, especially at night.

Here’s a story that should leave you shaking your head in disgust.

Crystal Board, 24, (pictured left) was placed in jail on charges of child endangerment and felonious assault after she flew into a rage that was directed towards her boyfriends 22-month-old son, Jared Fowler. She bit his cheek and broke his arm in the attack while alone babysitting the boy. After calling her boyfriend, the pair then took the child to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. It was then revealed that the boy had a healing broken leg and foot. Not believing Board’s story of her play biting and the child breaking his arm in the slats of a crib, the hospital notified authorities. She was arrested back in December.

Now in jail, Board was now no longer able to care for her own young daughter, Alexis. Hamilton County Job and Family Service social workers placed Alexis with her biological father, 32-year-old Rod Vanloan (pictured right). Vanloan is now charged with the murder of 14-month-old Alexis. On May 5th, Vanloan admitted to kicking Alexis twice while trying to teach her to walk.…
