Your country has a handy web extension, I might just use that..

Lately i've noticed more and more brands using foreign country web extensions to add an extra dimension to their campaign.

One in particular that seems to be getting good usage comes from the lovely little island of Tuvalu, a Polynesian nation located in the Pacific Ocean. Their country's extension is .tv which for obvious reasons is very desirable.

I think anyone that uses that extension for a campaign should have to make a nice donation to the people of Tuvalu. Well that's what i would do anyway.

//Not so super after all

A study has shown that woman superheroes are not so super after all. No matter how strong or smart or what powers they have, they are still portrayed as the weaker sex. That may all be very true, but i'd sooner watch Charlize wearing a tight suit than a man. For more on the story read on

//Nobody puts Ironman in the corner

This has to be the best video i've seen all week.

//TurboBoost Touchdown

Really nice campaign for Dick Smith by Soap. Well worth a look

//Fun with Cocktails

Thanks to 'Blame it on the voices' for the pic

//Antivirus software bug hits NZ

I wouldn't normally write a post about something so geeky, but how funny is that. You buy software to protect your computer from bugs, and then your software ends up being a bug itself. You just can't win. Well, not if you're a kiwi anyway. Australia seems to be ok, for now.
If you're a bit of a geek feel free to read on

//30 years of nudity in games

Nudity in games seems to be becoming more and more a common occurance these days, but it's far from a new thing. Nudity in games started way back in 1980 in the form of some skin coloured little square blocks arranged in the shape of a woman. I remember the first time I played 'Rings of Power' on the Sega Genesis and saw my first pixelated cartoon nipple. Those were the days. To see a snippet of game nudity through the years, click here

//New iPhone 4G sneak peak

Hot off the press, the new Apple 4G iPhone. I find it interesting that they gave it sharp corners like the new iMacs, I would've thought they would've kept the super lim line design like the new iPad. Have a look and let me know what you think?
Thanks to Gizmodo for the hot news.

//Southpark on Facebook

I really like this, it brings to life a weird truth about facebook from a real life perspective. If you can get your hands on the full episode its definitely worth a look, there were some more absolute gems.

//Hidden Pizza Restaurant

A mysterious new pizza restaurant has popped up in Melbourne which gives away free pizzas, with the challenge being finding where it is! You must search for it online and then once you have found it, order your pizza with the time you will be arriving and they will send you a unique code and the address of the location. Then you get your free pizza!

Smells like a good idea to me. Check it out here

//Learn F***in' Science with Insane Clown Posse

If you're into profanity ridden learning then this is your dream. From the makers of Insane Clown Posse comes a textbook where every lesson is jam packed full of clown rage which are all based on ICP lyrics. To fully appreciate it, watch this
