  • Pet Peeve: Why Are Most Amateur Cell Phone Videos Still Recorded Vertical?

    I just saw an amateur video of actor Chad L. Coleman of "The Wire" and "Walking Dead" going berserk on a NYC subway. Well, I feel like going just as berserk watching that video. Why? It had nothing to do with Coleman and everything to do with whoever recorded the scene on his cell phone because once again it was VERTICAL. Why, oh WHY do people STILL record in the VERTICAL when it is obvious that turning the cell phone HORIZONTALLY allows for a much fuller field of vision in stark contrast to the NARROW band of the vertically held...

    His parents said they were so concerned that they called police. Officers who showed up at Rodger’s doorstep for a mental health check in April, however, found a well-mannered if shy young man whom they concluded posed no risk. They hadn’t seen the videos, and by the time law enforcement had, it was too late: Rodger had gone on a deadly rampage. The sheriff’s office “was not aware of any videos until after the shooting rampage occurred,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kelly Hoover said. Sheriff Bill Brown has defended the officers’ actions, but the case highlights the challenges...

    Being a mom or dad is one of life's greatest joys. But early on weekend mornings? We're not always feeling the joy so much. In a series of Vine videos now going viral, one bleary-eyed dad captures the truth of Saturday mornings as a parent. Tony Serafini, a 38-year-old dad from Leominster, Mass., spends Saturday mornings alone with his 4-year-old daughter after his wife and eldest daughter leave for dance class. He started shooting a series of videos showing the little girl rocking out to her favorite music in the background, while dad blearily waits for his caffeine to kick...

Her YouTube tutorials on how to make quilts have drawn as many as a million viewers, some from as far away as South Africa. Her family's Missouri Star Quilt Co. gets as many as 30,000 orders a month...

    Those who closely follow current events may often find themselves hearing a politician making a claim, but swearing they heard them say the exact opposite a month, a year, or even a decade ago. That’s because, many times, they did. Tuesday night on TheBlaze TV, Glenn Beck aired a segment documenting a number of apparent lies and falsehoods being pushed by the current administration, though he was clear that GOP leaders have done the same. In the case of health care reform, for instance, President Barack Obama repeatedly promised that families who earn $250,000 a year or less would not...

    Dish Network Corp plans to close 300 Blockbuster stores in the United States in the coming weeks and could lay off as many as 3,000 employees, a move that comes days after the DVD rental firm's UK unit went into administration. Dish is trying to shed unprofitable Blockbuster outlets as online retailers like Amazon.Com Inc and download sites like Apple Inc's iTunes eat away at Blockbuster's business model. The potential job cuts represent about 40 percent of Blockbuster's U.S. workforce of 7,300 people.

    Minneapolis police want you to know race has nothing to do with an epidemic of violent crime in their downtown. Same for crime reporter Matt McKinney: The recent increase in what he calls “flash mob” violence and mayhem is “random” and “no other real pattern emerges” and the “motivation for the attack remains unclear.” But more and more people in Minneapolis are connecting the violence with groups of blacks marauding through the downtown; beating, hurting, destroying and stealing. Sometimes right in front of police. A lot of it on YouTube. With lots of witnesses – 15 to 20 times over...

Breitbart was, of course, referring to clips that allegedly show President Barack Obama during his college days — videos that the media leader claimed would show “why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.” These tapes, which have inspired conspiracy theories surrounding what led to Breitbart’s death on Thursday of natural causes at the age of 43, are now purportedly going to be released (Glenn Beck has strongly cautioned viewers...

But the unpredictable Supreme Court left only Judge Samuel Alito arguing that Congress's ban on the distribution of animal cruelty videos should not be voided under the First Amendment's protection of the freedom of speech. Justice Alito wrote: "The Court’s approach, which has the practical effect of legalizing the sale of such [animal cruelty] videos and is thus likely to spur a resumption of their...

    Youtube needs to crack down much harder on vid eos that promote violent jihad. While the Web site has made some efforts to remove videos that violate its ban on terror promotion, thousands remain. Indeed, videos that glorify and promote terrorism continue to flood the site; YouTube needs to find a way more consistent and sustained approach, or find itself sucked into an endless game of "whack-a-mole." In October, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Queens-Brooklyn) wrote YouTube executives asking them to remove all material featuring Anwar al-Awlaki -- the American-Yemeni cleric fingered as the ideological inspiration of Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times...

Christie, a son of an Irish father and a Sicilian mother, has a simple approach to politics: he's always honest, afraid of no one, and speaks truth to power. If some people don't want to hear the truth because they fear it, well, that's their problem. He says what he believes, and he does what he says, the consequences be damned.
