I'm unable to recall the last time I visited a theater to watch a movie and I'm guessing it's been over four years at least. High tickets prices would rank among the primary reasons and the fact that home theater solutions are capable of 1080P and 7.1 surround sound in the comfort of your home doesn't help either. Well, all that might change with Dolby's new Atmos surround sound experience.
It's not often I get excited by new technology but this one has me on the edge of my seat! On June 22nd the public will be introduced to 64 speaker feeds and 128 simultaneous inputs for a true 3D audio experience. If you don't believe me check out the video!

Historic: The Internet Protests Anti-Piracy Bills
Today will go in the history books. Many of you have woken up to probably notice that some of your favorite websites are down or being redirected. Some of those sites include Google, Craigslist, Firefox (default home page), Reddit, and Wikipedia just to name a few. Simply put PIPA / SOPA is reckless legislation only intended to benefit those who are in it for themselves. TorrentFreak has been covering the details of the latest internet protest urging each and every one of you to do your part, contact your representative, and let it be known that you will not stand up for this. Unfortunately these days it's up to the people to represent themselves. Lawmakers these days seem to function as corporate pawns.
So you're busy working only to notice that one of the emails in your OS X Mail App seems to be stuck! You cannot delete or move the email no matter what you try. When doing so you get a message like this.
The message "LOL Cats" could not be moved to the mailbox "Trash - firstname.lastname@example.org".
No worries there's an easy fix. Simply select the mailbox in question, from the Mailbox menu select Rebuild. That should fix it.

2011: The Year Intellectual Property Trumped Civil Liberties
Things are about to change and probably not for the better. An interesting article by Wired.
The three provisions extended included:
â€¢ The â€œroving wiretapâ€ provision allows the FBI to obtain wiretaps from a secret intelligence court, known as the FISA court (under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act), without identifying the target or what method of communication is to be tapped.
â€¢ The â€œlone wolfâ€ measure allows FISA court warrants for the electronic monitoring of a person for any reason â€” even without showing that the suspect is an agent of a foreign power or a terrorist. The government has said it has never invoked that provision, but the Obama administration said it wanted to retain the authority to do so.
â€¢ The â€œbusiness recordsâ€ provision allows FISA court warrants for any type of record, from banking to library to medical, without the government having to declare that the information sought is connected to a terrorism or espionage investigation.
