Now that the new browser is out many people are having their words and chiming in good or bad about such product. However throughout the technology consensus, Chrome is supposedly lackluster in return….well, that’s great and call considering that Chrome is all of one day old.

I understand why Mozilla and Microsoft make big stinks saying their not impressed. However, we must look back to when navigator was king, they weren’t impressed with IE probably. IE wasn’t impressed with Firefox and now its the supposed “king” of the browsers. There mere fact that people are so quick to bash a less than 24 hour old product is just amazing. Not to mention that this product is considered a BETA product is even better. The browser will get better. It’s pretty much open to all developers to create their own widgets and share it to the world.

It will be big, just like Google does everything they do big. I however am quite excited about the new advancements, that could potentially be created because someone is willing to try and open new doors.

Just give Chrome more time to shine than 24 hours. All things great did not instantly happen, they were created and crafted time and time again until perfection.

*Update – The link to download Google Chrome Beta Can Be Found Here!*

So today is the day a new open source web browser is released.  Aiming at taking the functionality of firefox and making it better.  I for one will be one of the millions that is downloading it at 2 o clock to see what its all about.  This project has been on the table since 2004 when google pulled its development staff off of firefox and began with a fresh start aiming to correct the problems that IE and Firefox have long since ignored when it comes to web-browsing.

The main feature of this new internet browsing window is that each tabbed page is running it’s own process, so this should completly make the crashing browser a memory and only allows the single page that is corrupted to crash.  Pretty sweet, as often times on firefox, when one page crashes, the whole browser crashes.  It’s not really a big deal, but if it happens normally to you, then this is certainly the option to go for.

Also another step up to the browsing features Chrome has is the Webkit engine, made famous by Apple’s Safari and various nokia cell phone browsing applications.  Also, the “omnibox” is finally out of beta mode(which can be seen on the google home page, when you search you get the amount of searches and it autocompletes for you) and the final mode will enable a smart search filter for you and create results even faster, and more accurate to ease the searching for the consumer.

All in all I am highly excited and will be giving my take on this browser after it has been downloaded and viewed upon by the masses!  Enjoy!

Uploaded below was is a released image from google describing the new Google Chrome in comic book form!

I figured today I would post something that was bugging me during these Olympic events.  I dislike the new scoring and think its biased as well.  I watched an interview from some German guy basically saying it was open to let more biased scoring in for teams that have a higher political advantage towards others.  I think its pretty absurd that politics are ruining these games and creating such a buzz and poor publicity for these games.  The kings of poor publicity during this time has to be China.  That country has gone and dented so much of their reputation that it’s unbelievable how their country hasn’t had a revolt.  Maybe its just because society there is under so much repression it can’t do anything but bend over and take it.

The Chinese governement, in one simple word “sucks.”  They kicked a kid out of the opening ceremony because she didn’t seem like a good person to represent her country i.e. she was ugly.  That’s absurd.  The girl is 7 years old.  But, we can’t get a great opinion about a country because they are lying bastards who try and represent something they are not.   It’s just frustrating how much politics absolutely ruins everything in life.  In this article here. The Chinese actually defend it as a statement of “favoring one girl and making one sit on the bench.”  how so?  You had one girl sit on the bench and then had that girl that was riding the pine do all the work while you had someone else gain notoriety?  Piss on you China, your politics and what you want people to see earn you a spot in hell.

Next, another story that is so incredible I can’t believe it’s real.  A performer was injured during practice and was not attended to for 50 MINUTES!  Are you kidding me, seriously?  She is now paralyzed from the waste down and some speculate that it could have been prevented if the Chinese governement would have let parametics enter in a timely fashion.  Also, once everyone found out this person was hurt China went ahead and said that it was a broken leg. China, if we ever meet, I could shoot you.  I honestly feel bad for people that live there and have no way to escape their government.  Link to article http://au.news.yahoo.com/a/-/newshome/4898104

Haven forbid you talk about Darfur.  What’s going on there is so balls, one can’t even comprehend that their government is a piece of shit.  They revoked a visa of an American Olympian because he was an open activist for Darfur.  Well newsflash China, what your doing to them is fucking insanity, I only hope that someday someone can do that to you, and killing someone’s dream of being a medal winner in favor of your good face is ridiculous.  I hope the politicians die for it.

Their government is absolutly insane.  You can’t have an opinion, you can’t protest, you can’t live, you can’t breathe, and to the Chinese government if you live there, you certainly have no freedom.

To everyone who reads this and are of a foreign nature.  Please, don’t think I hate people of Chinese nature.  I simply am astonished that this government can destory someone’s soul, and dreams in order for it to always seem like its one giant land of OZ.

Well, with the release of Madden 09 approaching us, the player weapons seem pretty standard as always. With the addition of Rookies there isn’t much new to who is listed and who is not. The only thing I disagree with is that Eli Manning is more accurate of a quarterback than Ben Roethlisberger. I don’t know if its because he won the Super Bowl, but Ben has always had a higher completion percentage, than Eli. Even with his season where he led the league in interceptions. So without further ado, you can find the link to the player weapons here. Madden NFL 09 Player Weapons.

Notable Players:

Darren Sproles – Elusive Back
Joe Flacco – Cannon Arm QB
Ryan Grant – Power Back
Rashard Mendenhal – Power Back
Darren McFadden – Stiff Arm Ball Carrier
Adrian Peterson – Stiff Arm Ball Carrier
Jerricho Cotchery – Possession Receiver
Limas Sweed – Spectacular Catch Receiver
Mario Manningham – Spectacular Catch Receiver

As for all of the other players, its more of the same. Like I said, my only problem was the Eli/Ben thing and that’s because I am a Steeler fan. But, all is well that ends well. Read and Enjoy!

Wow, I can’t think of a better way to get my movie needs on, and seeing the Dark Knight twice. Both times I was blown away. Aside from The Scarecrow the Joker is my next favorite villain, but with the performance of Heath, I must say, the Joker has taken the number one spot. I can’t get his first story about how the scars came about on his face. I loved it, all while showing how sick and sadistic the human behind the paint has become.   Oh and the pencil trick was wonderful.

Although I don’t think its going to warrant him an Oscar for it, but I think it provides a strong glimpse as to how serious and dedicated of an actor he was for his last full movie. Hands down, he created the reality of what people didn’t expect, inciting chaos with words, his fiery passion to destroy the world and watch it burn as Alfred states.

Heath provided the incite and the pathological essence of the creation of a mastermind through psychology. The story illustrated was great for his plot, but he made you believe it could happen. The way he altered his voice and changed his personality numerous times, really made the movie and the Joker unpredictable, as well as the score of music that played in the background as the Joker spoke, making it more and more intense as the scene went on.

The plot with Rachel and Harvey Dent and the creation of Two-Face was great as well. Throughout the movie though I felt as if Two-Face was just there trying to get revenge. I hope they bring him back and if they do, there are a lot of questions that need answers. All in all The Dark Knight, is quite possibly my favorite movie in years. The plot, the characters and the twists of the movie are top-notch. It’s unbelievable, and I would have loved to hear what Heath would of had to say about the character process at all the premiers. Cheers, and enjoy some goodness below.
