Late last week, producer Joel Silver reopened the most pressing debate of 2009 by criticizing Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Watchmen, faulting the director for being too much of a “slave” to Alan Moore’s material to take any real chances (besides using Leonard Cohen as aural Viagra). Among Silver’s evidence that Gilliam would have made a “MUCH much better movie” was the alternate ending that’s now playing only in the multiplex that hosts all of Gilliam’s unfinished projects, in which Doctor Manhattan destroys himself to save everyone else. Now Snyder has fired back, telling The Huffington Post of how he took on Watchmen, in that same sacrificial spirit, to “save it from the Terry Gilliams of this world.”
Deeming the proposed Gilliam ending “completely insane,” Snyder insists that he made Watchmen “because I knew that the studio would have made the movie anyway and they would ...

Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave will be packaged into a high school curriculum on slavery, along with the book it was based on and a study guide created by the National School Board Association. Television personality Montel Williams spearheaded the effort to bring the film to classrooms, which combines the efforts of the NSBA, New Regency, Penguin Books, and the producers of the film.
Director Steve McQueen is quoted in the press release: “Since first reading 12 Years a Slave, it has been my dream that this book be taught in schools.”
Williams did the same thing with the 1989 film Glory, as part of an curriculum about the Civil War. He’s also quoted:

Ashton Kutcher is helping Lenovo design a line of special edition smartphones. The Hollywood star and noted tech enthusiast was brought on board as a product engineer back in October, and you'll see the first devices influenced by Kutcher arrive sometime this year. According to Lenovo executive David Roman, Kutcher's role in shaping the company's hardware is very real. "I know on one level, it sounds corny," Roman said in an interview with Recode. But he insisted that Lenovo's partnership with Kutcher represents far more than a publicity grab. "He not only sees himself as an engineer, but he is an engineer. If he sees a problem, he wants to solve it."
Roman said that Kutcher's primary focus has revolved around user experience on the...
Take a look at the foot stool pictured below. Notice anything different? If you did, it was probably the unusual grain on the legs. It’s not actually a natural grain; it’s the seams from the layers of wood attached to create it. This stool was 3D printed by startup 4 AXYZ, which hopes to use its technology to offer custom, affordable furniture made out of high-quality wood.
That means there are differences beyond just that layered look. For example, a stool made with current methods might be manufactured in nine pieces and then need to be hand-assembled. This stool is made of three pieces and no humans have to get involved in assembly.
Another difference: Without any extra manufacturing cost, a customer could increase or decrease the size of the object they order, or substitute in a different kind of wood. More interestingly, they could combine different types of wood and materials (think carbon fiber or Kevlar) to create composite items that would currently be very difficult to make.
4 AXYZ founder Samir Shah, left, said the startup is ready to go ahead with manufacturing furniture as soon as it finds funding. Photo by Signe Brewster.
Founder and CEO Samir Shah said that while machines have long been trying to catch up to humans with their woodworking abilities, “this time, hands can’t do this.”
When I spoke with 4 AXYZ last year, the company was closely guarding its product. But at the Launch festival Monday, Shah showed me a few printed wood pieces. Here are some examples of what 4 AXYZ can do:
Shah said 4 AXYZ has also since begun collaborating with Portuguese home company A Catedral. A Catedral is developing smart windows that can change their tint and color in response to light or detect atmospheric changes like smoke, but had trouble integrating electronics into the windows in an attractive and functional way.
Enter 4 AXYZ, which developed a system to embed electronics within the window frames. Its machine is capable of printing hollow objects or embedding objects directly in wood. It can make window frames with embedded layers of cork, which cut down on heat.
Shah said 4 AXYZ could eventually print “smart wood” studded with sensors. A smart railing could detect when people go up or downstairs and switch off lights on turn on heat. Smart floors could detect when a stranger enters a home and alert its owners or the authorities.
4 AXYZ’s printing method involves adapting an existing German woodworking machine to operate in 3D. It works by combining small, uniformly cut pieces of wood. Shah actually prefers to put the manufacturing technique under the broader term of “additive manufacturing,” as there is at no point any liquid “ink” involved, as is generally the case in 3D printing.
4 AXYZ is currently seeking funding to buy its own woodworking machine. With money in hand, it would be ready to set up shop immediately.
Shah said that while they have thought up major applications like furniture, he’s sure people will think of many more ways to use the machine.
“We have the technology and we don’t know how far someone else can take this,” he said.

You can befriend a dog by letting it smell you, but you can make a cat love you by offering it your earwax. Is this kind of disgusting? Yes. Does it actually work? Apparently it does.
Redditor and former animal control worker sirdrizzzle makes the tantalizing suggestion:
Ex animal control person here. To win it over in a pinch, stick your finger in your ear and give it a twist, cats love earwax.
Of course, you also have to take your finger out of your ear and put it in the vicinity of the cat (but that's a given, right?). This may seem a little insane to those unfamiliar with cat quirks (like myself) but the cat-earwax phenomenon is apparently very common. If you look at Yahoo, the PetsWelcome blog, Ask.com, Answers.com, Is It Normal?, and The Cat Site, you'll find plenty of evidence. There's even a blog named this circumstance. You can also watch the video above for a real, live demonstration!
So, if you need to make friends with a cat, stick your finger in your ear. Seriously.

Citing sources, both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter say Fincher is in "early talks" with the company to direct the film, which was penned by Aaron Sorkin and based off Walter Isaacson's 2011 authorized biography of Jobs. In an interview two years ago, Sorkin said he expected the film to play out in three scenes shot in real-time, and set before major product unveilings throughout the years.

So if you weren’t impressed by the phones that debuted this week at Mobile World Congress, there’s hope yet you might be happy. What if you could create your own smartphone instead of buying a cookie cutter model designed to sell to millions around the world? Your new phone would truly be your phone as you could pick different pieces, each with a function of your choice, and piece them together in a single handset. Google’s Project Ara is exactly that solution.
The effort was actually started by Motorola and is similar to earlier projects started by Modu and Phonebloks. Google has agreed to sell Motorola to Lenovo for $2.91 billion but Project Ara is staying with Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, also known as ATAP.
The Google ATAP team opened up to Time’s Harry McCracken this week, providing a closer look at the concept and suggesting that Google hopes to hit a $50 price point for Ara. That’s aggressive considering the bill of materials in today’s basic Android phones. The components in the Moto G, for example, are estimated to cost $123 and that’s a pretty low- to mid-range handset. Granted Google is hoping to have an actual Ara product on the market in about a year, so component costs will surely drop.
Even so, how good of an experience can a $50 phone built with modular components actually be? Don’t expect a high-resolution display at that price, for starters, and you may also be looking at a phone with a slower 2G or 3G mobile broadband connection. Google says for $50 it may not even have a mobile broadband connection, opting for a less-expensive Wi-Fi radio. I can see some potential here in emerging markets that have limited or no broadband infrastructure, but outside of those areas, you’ll have to pay more.
That has me wondering: How much would I pay for a modular phone that I’d actually be happy to use?
Well, I can live with a 720p display — I already do with my Moto X — and if I had to go back to a 3G connection, I suppose I could do that as well. Dropping down to a lower camera sensor would be tough and I certainly wouldn’t want a cheaper, small battery. Every little component boost over a $50 basic price is going to add up pretty quickly here. In fact, to get the phone I want with all of the features and functions that would make me happy, I wonder: Would I end up paying more for such customization ability?
Don’t misunderstand me: I think there’s merit to Project Ara and other similar efforts. Aside from aiming for a truly low-cost device that could help connect more people to the mobile web, there are other benefits. If one particular part of your modular phone breaks — the display is a perfect example — it could be more cost-effective to swap out that single part. And instead of buying a whole new phone every 12 to 24 months just to get a few new features, it might be more feasible to swap in a faster processor, more memory or a higher resolution display.
But lets not kid ourselves: The odds of Project Ara transforming the mobile industry are slim and the costs won’t be cheap. There’s always a premium price to pay for products that you create or customize yourself compared to an off-the-shelf product that enjoys huge economies of scale.

As a fair use advocate he seems a most unlikely adversary to quarrel with on those grounds. Nevertheless, that was exactly the path chosen by Australian music label Liberation Music in 2013.
The story began in June 2010 when Lessig delivered the keynote address at a Creative Commons conference in South Korea. The lecture, discussing cultural and technological innovation, included several clips from amateur music videos, some of them depicting people dancing to a song called “Lisztomania” by the band Phoenix.
The “Lisztomania” craze had developed when young people all around the world latched on to a video created by YouTube “avoidant consumer” and used the Internet and technology to develop and distribute their own derivatives. In his lecture, Lessig described the phenomenon as the latest iteration in the classic “call and response” tradition of communication.
In June 2013 Lessig’s video, which necessarily used snippets of the Lisztomania track, was uploaded to YouTube. On the last day of that month Lessig received a notice from YouTube warning him that the video had been blocked after it was deemed to contain content from Viacom. Liberation Music, the label behind the Phoenix track, then issued a DMCA notice and caused YouTube to shut down the video.
Lessig was subsequently warned by YouTube that further copyright breaches could lead to his account being closed down. In response Lessig submitted a counter-notice but was informed by Liberation Music that they would “commence legal proceedings in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts … for copyright infringement” if Lessig didn’t withdraw his notice.
While Lessig did retract his counter-notice, in August 2013 and with support from the EFF he sued Liberation Music, asserting his right to use the music clip under the fair use doctrine. Liberation acted in bad faith when it sent the takedown notice, Lessig’s lawsuit said, and “knowingly and materially” misrepresented Lessig’s video as infringing copyright.
Now, according to the EFF, Lessig has settled his dispute with Liberation after the label agreed to pay him damages and “fix” its copyright policies.
Liberation will pay Lessig an undisclosed sum for the damages it caused with the wrongful takedown. The money will go towards supporting the EFF’s work on open access and the label will also “adopt new policies” that respect fair use.
“Liberation Music is pleased to amicably resolve its dispute with Professor Lessig. Liberation Music agrees that Professor Lessig’s use of the Phoenix song ‘Lisztomania’ was both fair use under US law and fair dealing under Australian law,” the label stated in the settlement agreement.
“Liberation Music will amend its copyright and YouTube policy to ensure that mistakes like this will not happen again. Liberation Music is committed to a new copyright policy that protects its valid copyright interests and respects fair use and dealing.”
When Liberation took on Lessig they clearly picked the wrong person, but the professor hopes that the label’s mistakes will help others understand that fair use has its place, but copyright abuse does not.
“Too often, copyright is used as an excuse to silence legitimate speech,” Lessig said in a statement.
“I’ve been fighting against that kind of abuse for many years, and I knew I had to stand up for fair use here as well. Hopefully this lawsuit and this settlement will send a message to copyright owners to adopt fair takedown practices — or face the consequences.”A Lisztomania mashup

An entrepreneurial porn studio is using post-production techniques to re-create the look of a bareback movie while complying with a Los Angeles County law requiring adult film actors to wear condoms.
At the end of 2012, Los Angeles County passed a law—Measure B—that requires all adult film actors to wear condoms on camera. This led to an exodus of porn filmmakers, who fled to less-regimented places such as Las Vegas and Miami. According to FilmLA, the nonprofit that processes permits for movies and television across Los Angeles, the number of permits filed for porn movies has fallen by as much as 95 percent—from 500 per year before the amendment to the law, to just 24 in 2013.
Gay porn company Falcon Studios has come up with a technique that could potentially get round the law: it makes its actors wear condoms but then removes them in post production.

Do Android phones and tablets slow down over time? Many people seem to think so. We’ll look at the reasons why devices slow down and how to battle slow downs.
This problem isn’t necessarily unique to Android — try using an iPad 3 with iOS 7 and feel how slow it’s become — but it does seem to be reported by many Android users.
Your Android phone doesn’t have the same software it had a year ago. If you’ve received Android operating system updates, they may not be as nicely optimized for your device and may have slowed it down. Or, your carrier or manufacturer may have added additional bloatware apps in an update, which run in the background and slow things down.
Even if you haven’t seen a single update, the apps running on your device are newer. Whether you’re using newer apps or updated versions of the same apps you were using a year ago, apps seem to become heavier over time. As developers gain access to faster smartphone hardware, games and other apps may be optimized for this faster hardware and perform worse on older devices. This seems to happen on every platform. As the years go by, websites become heavier, desktop applications want more RAM, and PC games become more demanding.
How to Fix It: There’s not much you can do here. If your operating system seems slow, you may want to install a custom ROM like CyanogenMod that doesn’t have the bloatware and slow manufacturer skins many devices include. If your apps seem slow, try hunting for more lightweight apps.
You’ve probably installed more apps as you continue to use your device. Some apps open at startup and run in the background, consuming CPU resources and taking up your device’s memory. If you’ve installed a lot of apps that run in the background, they can slow down your device. Android offers real multitasking, so apps can run in the background.
If you’re using an animated live wallpaper and have a large amount of widgets on your home screen, these will take up CPU, graphics, and memory resources. Slim your home screen down and you’ll see an improvement.
Apps running in the background can also consume resources. To check what apps are using background processes, visit the Apps screen in the Settings app and swipe over to the Running category. If you don’t use an app that’s running in the background, uninstall it. If you can’t uninstall it because it came with your device, disable it. Don’t just end the service — it will automatically restart.
How to Fix It: Disable live wallpapers, remove widgets, and uninstall or disable heavy apps you don’t use. In fact, you may want to uninstall all the apps you never use.
Solid-state drives slow down as you fill them up, so writing to the file system may be very slow if it’s almost full. This will cause Android and apps to appear to be much slower. The Storage screen in the Settings app will show you how full your device’s storage is and what’s using the space.
Cache files can consume quite a bit of storage space if allowed to grow unchecked, so clearing cache files can free up disk space and make your file system perform better. To clear cached data for all installed apps at once, open the Settings app, tap Storage, scroll down, tap Cached data, and tap OK.
How to Fix It: Uninstall apps you don’t use, delete files you don’t need, and clear app caches to free up space. You can also just perform a factory reset and only install the apps you need to end up with a like-new device.
The lack of proper TRIM support was the main thing that caused Google’s original Nexus 7 tablet to slow down over time. This was fixed in Android 4.3, which added proper TRIM support. On Nexus devices, updating to Android 4.3 will fix this problem.
If you have an older device that doesn’t have Android 4.3 and has slowed down over time, you can perform TRIM by rooting it and using the LagFix app. This app runs the same fstrim command Android 4.3 runs in the background. TRIM is necessary because of how solid-state drives work — solid-state drives slow down over time because flash memory cells must be cleared before they can be written to again. TRIM preemptively clears cells that contain data from deleted files, ensuring things will be as fast as possible when Android needs to write to those cells in the future.
How to Fix It: Root your device and run LagFix if you’re using an older device. This happens automatically on devices running Android version 4.3 and newer.
Performing a factory reset and installing only the apps you use will help by removing all those old apps and files in one fell swoop. A factory reset won’t fix bloatware included with your device or run TRIM on your device’s storage, but it can help — just like reinstalling Windows can help fix a slow PC.

[f] Attack that fruit kid
Man, it must be pretty tough being Street Fighter poster boy and fighting game legend, Ryu. I mean, not only does this guy never get a break, having starred in every Street Fighter and Capcom Vs. game to date, but then he has to deal with our own Pete Holmes giving him the third degree on what he shouts during his Hurricane Kick attack.
This hilarious short from TBS’ The Pete Holmes Show, featuring Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Ryu, puts us in the office on that faithful day when Holmes attempted to uncover the mystery behind the famed + war cry:
Welp, it looks like were due for a couple of dialogue changes in the next Street Fighter game folks. Seriously, though, how many times have you seen/heard this move and wondered what in the hell Ryu (or Ken) was shouting? Holmes pretty much nailed every possibility we’ve ever considered, and his backwards comments about Ryu’s sexuality were definitely worth a chin-stroke or two. I deem this short seven golden letters of “perfect.”
Oh, and just for clarification, Ryu’s Hurricane Kick attack is actually called the “Tatsumaki Senpukyaku,” which is Japanese for “Tornado Whirlwind Leg.” Yeah, good to know, but still not as cool as “feel the wrath of my little piggies making contact with your punum.”

Vertical vs. horizontal is a huge debate in the online community. Due to YouTube aspect ratios, most people believe all videos should be shot with your phone on its side, creating the familiar horizontal image like you’d see in a movie theater. If you shoot the footage vertically and then upload to the web, there are huge black spaces on either side, making the footage look amateurish and small.
But there’s a movement embracing the vertical format, and nowhere is it seen better than Rotterdam in the Netherlands. There, a group of filmmakers have started the Vertical Cinema project – a traveling film festival featuring movies specifically shot with a vertical orientation.
Below, read more and see additional images and trailers for some of the films screened in the festival.
The Verge has an amazing article on this. Here are a few images of the event, which is currently traveling around Europe.
As you can tell, these events don’t take place in traditional cinemas. Most of the time, the ceilings simply aren’t big enough. Instead, the films screen in churches.
To read and learn much, much more about this event, visit VerticalCinema.org. Here’s how they describe themselves:
What we usually identify as the indisputable ‘temple of film’, the Cinema, is not really a given, especially not in the realm of experimental cinematic arts. Yet this is somehow sidelined in the process of re-thinking the possibilities of cinematic experience, mostly because the architectural frame is already there, if only as a convention established a long time ago within the theatrical arts. Actually, the history of experimental cinema and the art of the moving image suggests that the space might very well be the crucial aspect of the total audiovisual experience – something one should always question and take into consideration when producing a work for audiovisual, sensory cinema.
For the Vertical Cinema project we ‘abandoned’ traditional cinema formats, opting instead for cinematic experiments that are designed for projection in a tall, narrow space. It is not an invitation to leave cinemas – which have been radically transformed over the past decade according to the diktat of the commercial film market – but a provocation to expand the image onto a new axis. This project re-thinks the actual projection space and returns it to the filmmakers. It proposes a future for filmmaking rather than a pessimistic debate over the alleged death of film.
Vertical Cinema is a series of ten newly commissioned large-scale, site-specific works by internationally renowned experimental filmmakers and audiovisual artists, which will be presented on 35 mm celluloid and projected vertically with a custom-built projector in vertical cinemascope.
And here are two trailers for films that play the festival, and give an idea of how these movies are exhibited and made.

After months of looking just about everywhere besides Jessica Alba’s house, Fox has finalized the team for its Josh Trank-directed Fantastic Four reboot. As long expected, Trank’s Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan will play Johnny Storm (a.k.a. The Human Torch), joining Miles Teller’s Reed Richards (a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic) for that awkward moment when your science experiments give you incredible superpowers, making your relationships even more complicated. Rounding out the team is Kate Mara’s Sue Storm (a.k.a. Invisible Girl) and Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm (a.k.a. The Thing)—with Bell at last fulfilling a career arc that began when audiences saw Bell as the wee, prancing lad of Billy Elliot and said, “Someday he shall make an amazing The Thing.”
Obviously, Fox’s strategy for trying again with the Marvel franchise is to skew younger, more multicultural, and tinier ...

There's been plenty of fierce debate around Google Glass and general etiquette for using the device, and now Google is finally stepping in with its own take. The company has posted a list of do's and don'ts for participants in its Explorer program. "Our Glass Explorer community, which consists of people from all walks of life, actively participates in shaping the future of Glass," Google says. But these suggestions don't necessarily come from Google's senior leadership; instead, the company says its list of best practices is largely based on feedback from current Explorers.
