    LAS VEGAS -- Timothy Bradley promised to shock, though the biggest shock in his fight with Manny Pacquiao came from the judges' scorecards. In a fight Pacquiao seemed to have in hand, two judges decided otherwise, giving Bradley a split decision Saturday night and ending the Filipino fighter's remarkable seven-year unbeaten run. Promoter Bob Arum fumed, the crowd at the MGM Grand arena booed, and Pacquiao seemed stunned when the decision was announced. Arum said there would be a November rematch, though he blasted the way the decision went down. "I'm going to make a lot of money on the...

  • The Pac-Man Ship That Eats Oil Spills

    The Bottsand class oil recovery ships cruise just like any other vessel, until they reach an oil spill. Then, they open like Pac-Man, transforming into a machine that can clean the oil from 140 cubic meters of water per hour. Created by the Deutsche Marine—the German Navy—the Bottsand-class opens in half, creating an area to trap water to process in its 790 cubic meter tank. Obviously, one is not enough to clean BP's oilpocalypse in the Gulf of Mexico, but at this point in this huge disaster, anything can help.

    A principal in the infamous Las Vegas shooting involving NFL star Adam "Pacman" Jones has died under mysterious circumstances in the Bronx - and now authorities are trying to determine if she was murdered. Sadia Morrison, a 26-year-old celebrity stylist, was found dead last Friday behind 1065 University Ave., a building in High Bridge where she may have gone to visit a friend or boyfriend, police said. At first, investigators thought she had jumped to her death, police sources said, but it now appears that is not the case. An autopsy was inconclusive, and the medical examiner is conducting further...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pac Man will be reborn on Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox Live online service on Wednesday as a final tribute for designer Toru Iwatani, who is retiring from the $30 billion games industry he helped ignite. The new version of the iconic arcade game is a faithful interpretation of the addictive 27-year-old original, where players wrenched joystick controllers to race a character -- resembling a yellow pizza missing a slice -- around a digital maze to chomp white pellets and chase multicolored "ghosts." The new game, "Pac Man Championship Edition," is the second and final version Iwatani personally...

    Adam "Pacman" Jones' attorney said the Tennessee Titans cornerback is "very frightened" as he waits possible trial for obstructing police in Georgia and as he waits for the fallout from an investigation into a triple shooting in Las Vegas during NBA All-Star weekend, USA Today reported Thursday. "He's very frightened, because there are such big clouds around him," Jones' attorney Manny Arora said Wednesday. Jones is not a suspect in the Feb. 19 incident in Vegas, but a co-owner of the strip club where the shooting occurred alleges the shooter entered the club with Jones. Meanwhile, a friend of Jones...

    Namco has released the hugely-popular Ms Pac-Man for the fifth-generation iPod. Like an old college mate who refuses to accept the world has moved on, Ms Pac-Man is still out there night after night, popping pills and running from ghosts down warp tunnels whilst listening to repetitive music. While most of us have had to grown up since 1982* it's nice to occasionally drop by and see someone who hasn't - if only for a few hours, and to remind us why we decided not to stay in the last century. Ms Pac-Man will be available for download through iTunes...
