Every Flight on Earth in 72 Seconds

The sex-starved boffins from the the Zurich School of Applied Sciences have compiled a 72-second video simulation showing the flight path of every commercial flight in the world over a 24-hour period. Compiling the data was surprisingly simple as it was readily available on the Internet.

See the video below or go to Youtube.

Blu-ray Review: The Devil’s Own

You know him; you love him; now see that man Brad Pitt in this slow-paced moralistic drama.

The Devil’s Own was directed by the late Alan J. Pakula (April 7th 1928 – November 19th 1998) and tells the story of Frankie McGuire (Brad Pitt) who at a very young age witnesses his father’s brutal execution by masked gunmen. He joins the IRA, and soon becomes one of the most dangerous men in Ireland. McGuire then travels to New York on a mission. Through an IRA sympathizer, he gets a fake green card and arranges to stay with Tom O’Meara (Harrison Ford), an honest cop and family man.

More dodgy deals after the jump.

Review: Motorstorm Pacific Rift

Motorstorm Pacific Rift Box ArtThe original Motorstorm was the first game I experienced on the PS3, and I played it to death. The graphics were fantastic, and the gameplay, despite being difficult to master at times, appealed to my inner madman.

Not many other racing games (with the notable exception of Burnout Paradise) have made me feel exhilarated and charged up to win as Motorstorm did, and 20 months later, I’m glad to say that the sequel, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, not only re-awakens the old feelings, but cranks them into overdrive.

Brutal off-road racing is back with a vengeance! In Pacific Rift, the festival has moved from the deep canyons and spires of Monument Valley to a previously unexplored island rich in lush forests, crystal-clear waterfalls, pristine beaches, smoking hot volcano fields, and mist-covered mountain peaks.
