A Batman vs. Superman Review that May Make Ben Affleck Proud

This review is from Guest reviewer Thomas. After viewing the movie BATMAN V SUPERMAN: Dawn of Justice, I have decided that enough hate has befallen this movie. I will, therefore, give as positive a review as possible. (and as spoiler-free as possible.) First off, I want to say; Henry from Eureka created Cyborg! Whoah! Now that I have gotten that off my chest, Director Zack Snyder apparently deduced that DC  fans really wanted a movie based on Superman/Doomsday, The Dark Knight Returns, and World’s Finest. Therefore, he did them all in one shot. The movie opens right about where I expected it – A year or so since General Zod dropped in to give Kal-El a big hug. As the battle left buildings destroyed and people lying dead, the public started to wonder if having a powerful alien floating about is such a good idea. At the top of...

New Image of Ghostbusters Female Cast Released

If you are like me, you are anxiously awaiting the release of the next generation of Ghostbusters. Thirty years after the original film, the reboot offers your kids the same excitement it offered you at that age. The new version looks to pass the Bechdel test and show that Geeks are more than the stereotypical males such as found in Big Bang Theory. Produced by Ivan Reitman and Amy Pascal, and written by Paul Feig and Katie Dippold. Starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as the paranormal fighting quartet. Ghostbusters release is planned July of 2016.

Choetech 5 Port USB Surge Protector, Griffin Reversible Lightning Cable

Today, I take a look at two USB products in the Choetech Surge protected 5-USB port charger, and the Griffin reversible USB to Lightning connector. Both are great products to have for your USB or iOS needs. Griffin Reversible USB to Lightning Cable Don’t you hate it when you can’t plug the USB cable in, so you think it’s backwards and flip it around only to find out the first way was right? Back in January, Griffin showed their solution to this problem in the reversible USB cable.  Now, the cable is out and ready for use. I checked out the 5 foot cable – a braided nylon cable with a more protective jacket at the plug ends. I put it in a high-traffic room to see how it would fair. Whereas my standard iPad/iPhone cable looked very dirty and sticky after a few days in this area,...

Daigo and Justin Wong Re-create Evo Moment 37
