I Love you, Beth Cooper

Let’s start this review off right. I Love You, Beth Cooper is the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen of comedies. If you’ve read my Revenge of the Fallen review then you’re well aware that I don’t mean that as a compliment. With all the controversy surrounding Bruno, I pose this question to you the viewer; what’s more offensive? A comedy that shocks audiences into laughter or a comedy that stuns audiences into coma? Truth be told, I Love You, Beth Cooper has a few scattershot laughs, but overall, it’s a bust.
In I Love You, Beth Cooper, unpopular valedictorian Denis Cooverman (Paul Rust) professes his love to high school hottie Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere) as part of his epic graduation speech. Problem is, Beth doesn’t even know Denis exists. In addition to making this awkward proclamation, Denis also proceeds to bring to light privileged information regarding other students on campus. It’s all part of his newly adopted “say what you feel before its too late” philosophy. To his great amazement, Denis is shocked to discover that Beth finds his admission cute. So cute in fact, that she and her popular girlfriends (Lauren London and Lauren Storm) decide to make an appearance at Denis’ graduation party. What follows is a convoluted mess of a movie that finds Denis butting heads with a few of his hostile classmates and unexpectedly joining forces with a few others. All these things are done in order to impress the girl of his dreams. A girl he doesn’t even know.

I Love You, Beth Cooper was directed by Chris Columbus and written by Larry Doyle (based on his own novel) and it attempts to put the audience in a sort of hyper reality/dreamlike state that might remind one of Better Off Dead, License to Drive, or Weird Science. In fact, since I mentioned Weird Science as an influence, I might as well tell it like it really is; I Love You, Beth Cooper is a sad carbon copy of all things John Hughes (Ferris Bueller’s Alan Ruck even shows up as Denis’ unbelievably understanding father). The big difference between Hughes’s films and this movie, is that most of Hughes’ works (the critically panned Weird Science included – I love that movie!) were witty, energetic, funny, and, for the most part, sincere. I Love You, Beth Cooper isn’t any of those things. It can’t even capture a fraction of the heart found in Superbad or a hint of the edge and cleverness so prominent in Mean Girls and Heathers (other noteworthy films this movie seems to be emulating).
This movie really is a train wreck. Unfortunate, because the set up suggests that perhaps something fun might transpire. Sadly, nothing really does. Who to blame? The cast? The director? Writer? All of the above? I think it starts with the story.
Panettiere is gorgeous and Heroes proves that she’s much more than a pretty face, but I’m convinced that every time she was on screen in this movie, Michael Bay was brought in to call the shots. Her Beth Cooper isn’t really a character. She’s treated more like a piece of meat. She’s essentially Megan Fox in Transformers only with a tad more emotion. The superficial screenplay never really allows her to be anything more than a sex object. Rust has a terrific look for this picture, but he’s asked to completely overplay the proceedings. The dumb jokes, the facial tricks, the super hero themed underwear. Everything is simply overdone. A shame too because a few moments near the end of the picture suggest that Rust has some chops, but in the end, we never really get to see what this kid is made of because, as is the case with Beth, his Denis isn’t really a character either.

XO Laptop’s New Software

During the XO laptop upgrade Weekend here in Washington DC, I’ve been taking notes on the OLPC learning club DC impressions of One Laptop per Child’s software 8.2.0 for the XO laptop.

The overwhelming verdict: Finally, the XO laptop really works!

Now why the parents and children of our humble group would be so amazed by the changes that 8.2.0 brings? Let me give you the run down of our experience with what feels like a whole new computer:

The Upgrade Process
First and foremost, the 8.2.0 upgrade process is
easy, especially if you upgrade off a USB memory stick. Gone are the days of dealing with Terminal – its all automatic. That said, there was consensus that its still more fun to upgrade as a group. Yet there are two reasons not to upgrade in haste. You will loose any saved data, so be sure save it to another USB memory stick first. Next, you’ll also loose any extra programs, like Skype or Opera, and will need to re-install them again.


Can your XO laptop do this?

Sugar’s User Interface
“Wow!” That the overwhelming response from DC. We’re amazed at how much easier and faster everything works. From the simple inclusion of a
control panel, to a fixed XO chat, to the advanced neighborhood view where different types of connections are shown differently, the user interface is much more intuitive. Or as one parent said “I can use the XO now!”

Expanded Content
The XO now can claim to come with a decent set of
Wikipedia content with both internal and external links to more data. By covering the basics, OLPC shows what can be done to help children learn even when they are offline. There are also user guides and even complete XO manual to show new users the XO’s tricks.

Hardware Changes
The once useless right mouse button now activities a number of “right click” actions, effectively doubling the mouse functionality. Another new functionality is the
WIFI manager in the XO Control Panel, where you can turn the mesh on or off. This is a great way to extend the XO’s battery life or even use it on airplanes. Best of all, we now have instant suspended and resume:

New Software Bugs
Its not all smiles and happiness in One Laptop Per Child land – there are a few bugs showing up in Release 8.2.0 that need fixing. One of the favorite programs for children, and a great teacher of letters and spelling is XO speak, and now it works only sometimes. It’s often silent, especially when you want it to comfort a sleepy child. Also, there are reports that XO get doesn’t work from Sugar and you need to go back to Terminal to add new programs.

New XO Hacks
I know that right about now there are geek tweaking their XO’s to get the most out of this build, but we found the star of Release 8.2.0 hacks to be Kevin Cole, who already
pyramided his Home view in the first minutes after upgrading. Now let’s hear him show off his randomized home view

Now Its Your Turn
If you have an XO laptop, its time for you to joint he rest of us and throw an XO Upgrade Party of your very own. No matter if you’re in a group or not, you’ll never be alone. The entire OLPC News Forum is ready to
help you with SUGAR and LINUX. As you do upgrade, be sure not to be shy.

Since the release of this first single the album has been trapped by rumors of a rift with Sony Music and a clear lack of promotion of the album.

Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter? Even a small kid in this world will know him. J.K.Rowling’s Harry Potter book has made a revolution in the Hollywood. This series had inspired everyone in each and every corner of this world.

The sixth part of the boy-wizard series – Harry Potter – is just about to hit the screens next to you and claims to be darker, and better than the previous – The Order of Phoenix sequel.
The Half-Blood Prince opens with a spectacular spectrum of neon lights blistering through the sky, as the death eaters devastates the London Bridge. Following which Dumbledore visits Harry and asks him to accompany him for a task.
The task is to convince Proff. Slughorn (played by Jim Broadbent) to take up classes in Hogwarts. The story moves on the last left plot declaring Harry to be the ‘Chosen One.’
The Potter series has come along way from the 2001, first release. The characters are no more kids and are no more novices to the wizardry world. Therefore, the approach towards the script handling has undergone a mammoth change from how Chris Columbus had directed the first two parts. David Yates, who directed the last Potter series – the Order of Phoenix, ensures that the story isn’t just darker, but more mature than the previous one.

The approach in the first few sequels was ‘not to alienate the reader’s base.’ However, David’s entirely different approach in the Order of Pheonix didn’t go too well with the audience in all. However, it is believed that the Half-blood Prince would make-up for the previous disappointment.

The story now rides on a bolder-darker plot, with the lead characters Harry, Ron and Hermione getting aware of their attractions and their urges getting more screen-space. The plot also includes Harry’s sudden sense of attraction for Ron’s sister – Ginny and
Hermione’s elevated attraction for the nerdy Ron to a full fledged crush. The story sure spills good news for those who have been waiting to see a good lip-locking scene involving Harry. There are plenty of moon-faced longing, inarticulate passion, and almost-kisses between Harry and his newfound love – Ginny. Ron finally ditches his self-doubt and Potter’s adventure to find out the real identity of the ‘half-blood prince.’ The movie weaves in the intricacies of relationships, matters of heart and hormones, and loads of dark magic, without bargaining with the core concept of friendship between the three prime characters.

Dumbledore enlists his favorite student to extract the secret long-buried history of an ex-Hogwarts’ student – Tom Riddle, which as you would have guessed, is Lord Voldemort. In the end, Harry is entrusted with the task of finding the Horcruxes (parts of Voldemort’s soul) and destroying it, as death parts his moon-spectacled teacher from him.

Tom Felton, plays his part well as the vengeance filled Malfoy, who is chosen by the ‘who-should-not-be-named’ to kill Harry Potter.  Ginny’s role, though patchy, is well donned by Bonnie Wright; while Hermione (Emma Watson) find it hard to make the ambivalent Ron (Rupert Grint) feel her emotions, as he is pretty busy wooing Lavender Brown (Jessie Cave).
Bruno Delbonnel, the new cinematographer on the board uses dark pallets to suit the storyline, careful enough to not to push it to the extreme. The sound by Nicholas Hooper adds gravity to the scenes and has the tint of the early John Williams scores, never giving the audience an unease that usually prevails with changing composer.
The scene, when a very important character passes away, has been beautifully cinematographed, acted and supported, undoubtedly well, by the scores.
In brevity, the Harry Potter Half-blood Prince is sure to rake in some moolah and remind the audience of the unmatched taste of the potter movies! But the question among people is – will the movie match the expectation of all? Or turn out to be a disappointment like the Order of Phoenix?

Akon

Akon (born Aliaune Thiam in Senegal) is an R&B singer who released his debut album Trouble in 2004, which included the singles “Locked Up” [Remix] (featuring Styles P), “Bonanza” and “Ghetto”. “Locked Up” reached the top 10 in the US, and the top 5 in the UK. “Ghetto” also became a radio hit when it was remixed to include verses from legendary rappers Notorious B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace) and 2Pac (Tupac Shakur). Recently, he has also released the single “Lonely” (sampled Bobby Vinton), which has reached top 10 on the US charts. His album also climbed to #1 in April. The mere act of surviving on a day to day basis is the foundation from which a true artist builds his craft. Multi-talented newcomer AKON is no exception to this rule. His dynamic debut album, Trouble, a collection of stirring songs, creatively reflects the ups and downs of the singer/songwriter/producer’s life experiences. A crafty blend of soulful hip-hop, TROUBLE is AKON’s vibrant first time tour-de-force. Trouble evolved from the struggles I went through and what I did and am still doing to correct those things,” offers AKON, who has had his fair share of adolescent problems with both the legal and school living a little and listening to the lyrics, I realized that I was going through a lot of stuff these rappers were talking about and I could relate.” Once hip-hop took over his life, AKON’s musical development exploded and he began channeling his energy into writing and producing his own music. Songs such as “Show Out” display how much hip-hop has influenced him. Over the sparsely yet hard hitting groove, “Don’t tempt me/’Cuz I’m close to the edge/I’m trying not to lose my head,” ring the lyrics that cleverly integrate original school lyrics. At the same time, the song pays homage to hip-hop pioneers all while maintaining its own identity.

His first single “Bananza (Belly Dance)” exhibits another side of the artist. On this song AKON puts forth a feel-good vibe. Singing system, as is reflected in his redemption song “Trouble Nobody.” “I’ve got a habit of writing about everything I go through,” he explains, “and this album gives a glimpse of where I am now.”
To understand where AKON is right now is just half the equation. The other half lies in where he came from: this young artist possesses a unique history. A Senegalese African, AKON moved to the United States when he was seven. His family is headed by legendary percussionist and jazz musician Mor Thiam, whose expertise for playing the Djembe, a traditional African drum, has been touted as “unrivaled.” B
It was AKON’s deep rooted love and passion for music, evolving from filial admiration, which allowed him to turn his life around, despite his trouble as a youth residing in New Jersey. AKON began playing several different percussion instruments and eventually embraced hip-hop music and culture, despite his initial disdain for the genre.
“When I first heard hip-hop I thought it was rubbish because I didn’t understand the concept of people talking over music,” AKON recalls, “But as I started growing up, over a seductive and sensual beat, “Bananza (Belly Dance),” is one of AKON’s most irresistible tracks. The song integrates a unique up tempo dance beat with a distinct wind instrumentation floating in the background guaranteed to improve every listener’s mood.

The reason for this, AKON says, “There are a lot of negative things going on today.” “We need to party and just have fun,” he continues, “‘Bananza…’ is a party record. You just go in the club, party and enjoy those beautiful women.” Life does not solely revolve around beautiful women and leisure time and AKON is well aware of this. On the somber, soulful “Ghetto” and the meditative, impressive “Journey,” AKON gives listeners an in-depth look into a harsher world, one that is just as gripping as it is chilling. But rather than sensationalize his own drama, AKON transmits, to his audience, the feeling of being a part of his inner circle.

AKON’s personal appeal and ability to reach a listener is a part of his whole package: a package that includes, most importantly, his distinctive vocals and a relaxed singing style. It is as though he is speaking to you as he sings in a very intimate manner. “When I sing the sound comes from the mood that I am in. These records are coming straight from the heart,” AKON divulges. Genuine and honest, AKON’s music is a step in a new direction: a trajectory that will lead us on a delightfully fulfilling path. Says AKON, “When I’m on the mic, I’m just giving the listener a part of me.” Be prepared to receive it.

Transformers: The Revenge of the fallen

Can anyone forget this name? Yeah, it’s Steven Spielberg’s movie about the robotic aliens. It made a revolution in the Hollywood in the year 2005 and now the second part has been released to entertain us

A few words about the movie:
Two years have passed sine young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) saved the universe from a decisive battle between warring races of robotic aliens. Despite his extreme heroics, Sam is still an average teenager with everyday anxieties about heading to college, leaving behind his girlfriend Mikaela (Megan Fox), and separating from his parents (Kevin Dunn and Julie White) for the first time. Of course there is the additional burden of trying to explain his departure to his newest friend and guardian robot, Bumblebee. For Sam the goal is to lead a normal university lifestyle, but to do that, he must ignore his destiny.
While Sam has done his best to put the conflict at Mission City behind him and return to his daily routine, the battle between the Autobots and Deceptions, although a top secret incident, has instigated many changes. Sector 7 has since been disbanded and its most loyal soldier, Agent Simmons (John Turturro), summarily dismissed. In its place, a new agency, NEST, has been created. Utilizing experienced field commanders like Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and Epps (Tyrese Gibson), NEST seeks to work side by side with the Autobots to avoid another deadly confrontation with the Deceptions. Unfortunately National Security Advisor Theodore Galloway (John Benjamin Hickey) possesses little foresight to fully comprehend the inexorable dangers which abound. Driven to gain control of every defense organization, along with their potential for power, and at the same time do away with what he sees as a frivolous government bureau, Galloway endeavors to terminate NEST, believing that any threat of war has long since passed. It is his conviction that humans share no vested interest in the Autobots’ dispute with the Deceptions.
Just as life is about to fall neatly into place at Sam’s new school, adapting to a new, albeit pushy, roommate, Leo (Ramon Rodriguez), and an equally pushy but much more attractive new acquaintance, Alice (Isabel Lucas), Sam suddenly becomes distracted by visions flashing across his brain like thunderbolts. Fearful that he is suffering from the dementia that plagued his grandfather, Sam keeps his visions a secret until he can no longer ignore the messages and symbols filtering through his mind.
Despite his best laid plans, Sam once again finds himself at the center of a tug of war between the Autobots and Deceptions with the fate of the universe at stake. Unbeknownst to Sam, he alone holds the key to the outcome of the struggle between evil and the ultimate power of good. With the help of his friends, his pals in NEST and even his parents, Sam finally learns to embrace the Witwicky birthright, no longer hiding from his family legacy: No sacrifice, no victory!

The Apple iPhone’s New Software

We all know about The Apple’s iPhone 3G. It has a mind-boggling applications and majestic look. It has full touch sensitive screen, motion sensor, wi-fi, maps and lot more.
In addition to this, The Apple iPhone 3G software, launched with the iPhone 3G S, and available as a free download to existing phones, adds much-needed basics such as cut and paste and e-mail viewing in landscape mode. It also has tools to help find or disable lost handsets that have gone astray.
The no-cost upgrade will greatly enhance individual users’ experience, while also increasing the pressure for centrally managed, enterprise-class tools to harness the new power provided by the update, which is available from 17th June.

Cut and paste:
The ability to select text and graphics for cut-and-paste operations is a feature that has been sorely missing on the iPhone. With the new software, it is simple enough to tap and hold to activate the selection tool and then drag the selector over text and graphics. Another tap brings up a cut/copy menu bar. After moving to the target application, pasting the selection is a quick two-tap process.
Many applications already have the ability to work in portrait or landscape mode on the iPhone, so the addition of this feature to the built-in mail application is welcome (if a little tardy). Mail works the same in either mode, with the keyboard changing to match the device orientation. The larger keyboard in landscape mode should help users who have had trouble accurately typing on the smaller keyboard that is used when mail is in portrait mode.
Some iPhone application makers are going to find it tough to go up against the free offerings from Apple that are included in the iPhone 3.0 software. For example, the built-in Voice Memos application records clearly and is simple to operate, and it trumps the voice recorder application I bought from the App Store.

Lost and Found:
Apple now provides a way to find lost iPhones and remotely wipe data, but only if individuals are signed up for a $99-per-year MobileMe subscription. The new features require that “push” be turned on, which can be a significant drain on the iPhone battery, depending on how frequently the process is set to run.
During tests, the Find My iPhone feature was generally accurate, narrowing down the location of my phone to within a couple hundred yards of where I was testing the device at home. However, I found the Google maps app was much more accurate than the iPhone app at locating the phone.
Unfortunately, the remote wipe feature appears to be a deadly poison for iPhones. Apple says that remotely wiped phones can be restored from MobileMe or through the restore process in the iTunes desktop client. However, after sending the destruct signal to my second-generation phone and attempting to restore it, the device just showed the Apple logo and then turned off.
I’ll have more to say about improvements made to the calendar, stock app and other iPhone tweaks, but, for now, I’m off to the Apple Store for some remote wipe first aid.

Conclusion:
The free upgrade to iPhone OS adds cut-and-paste capabilities, landscape mode for e-mail, and the ability to find and remotely wipe devices. However, in preliminary tests, restoring a wiped device was easier said than done.

Led Zeppelin – Striking Hard

Led Zeppelin were a legendary hard rock band in the 1970’s. They pioneered and perfected a new trend of Rock called classic rock which made them unique in many ways and brought them long lasting success and following. The origin of the band dates back to 1966 when Jimmy page their lead guitarist broke up from Yard-birds and founded the New Yard-birds with fellow bass guitarist John Paul Jones, vocalist Robert Plant, and drummer John Bonham. However the name Led Zeppelin came about when one of the guys supposedly remarked flowing like “a lead zeppelin” in practice which eventually stuck as the name.

They released several studio albums which became instant hits like Led zeppelin I , Led Zeppelin II, Physical Graffiti and the Presence. Some of their immortal blockbuster chart numbers include “A stairway to heaven”, “Kashmir”, ”the immigrant song”, “Black dog” ,”Achilles last stand” etc .In their zenith they were voted as “ the heaviest band of all time” by the Rolling stone magazine. However as was the wont they fell into the habits of the time and were increasingly involved in drugs, this marked a slow downfall as their drummer John Bonham died in early 80’s reportedly of excessive drug abuse thereby leading to the breakup of one of the most original bands of 20th century.

The band never really joined up again despite several efforts and speculation and their only real reunion in recent times being the O2 arena concert in 2007 which sparked record attendance.
