New Avengers Age of Ultron trailer

avengerstrailer

Marvel fans have a new treat in the form of another Avengers Age of Ultron trailer. This trailer shows us some things we’ve seen before, but it is mostly full of new footage. A lot of which is talking. There’s nothing particularly spoilerly, but just the same be careful if you don’t want to be spoiled.

The trailer starts off with the same theme from the second trailer, but there is different footage. It certainly makes me want to see this movie even more.

Nintendo will increase amiibo production

amiibo

Nintendo has announced plans to increase its amiibo production, to meet the continued demand for its figurines. The company has apologized to those fans who are frustrated by the lack of availability for certain amiibos, saying that it takes a few months to bring the amiibos from production to store shelves.

Nintendo will be increasing the number of Little Mac, Falcon, and other short-supply/high-demand amiibo figures. Now for the bad news. It looks like the production increase is only for the Japanese market, for right now at least. Maybe in the future they will make more available in the states too, but we don’t know yet.

Better Call Saul is one of the most talked about shows on TV right now. Rightly so. If you saw the premiere than you no doubt enjoyed it as much as Breaking Bad. I know that I did. Saul Goodman’s rise to smarmy criminal scumbag lawyer and his later fall makes for some good TV.

If you missed out on the premiere, don’t worry. Google Play is offering the very first episode for free, so that you can decide whether or not you want to follow the entire season. Something tells me that most of you will be glued to your screens and want more. This is an awesome show.

Cat video gets flagged on YouTube for copyright infringement

cat video

YouTube is one of the biggest online video websites and as such it has a growing copyright infringement problem. You probably already know that YouTube has a powerful automatic takedown tool that detects and flags alleged copyright infringement and then sends videos to a receiving site where they’re processed. The problem is that no humans are directly involved in this process. That results in innocent videos being taken down and creative people being stifled.

This is sad, but it is nothing new. However the takedown tool outdid itself for sheer stupidity when it flagged a video loop of a cat purring, apparently because EMI Music Publishing and PRS owned a 12 second part of that loop.
