  1. George R.R. Martin Posts Incredible LiveJournal Rant, Invites You To Come Watch The Interview In His Private Theater

    Dude, shouldn't you be writing?

    George R.R. Martin is truly peeved at Sony's decision not to release The interview following terrorist threats from hackers--so peeved, in fact, that he took to his LiveJournal to let off a little steam.

  2. [UPDATED] Reddit Bans Sony Hack File Sharing While Threats of Violence at The Interview Screenings Loom

    The transition from bizarre to frightening has been swift.

Most recently, threats were made involving violence at screenings of The Interview which resulted in the New York premiere's cancellation. Now, Reddit moderators have finally started cracking down on those sharing files obtained through the Sony hack.

  3. Sony Hack Reveals Marvel Almost Got Spider-Man Back in Cross-Studio Deal With Disney

    ALL WE ARE SAAAAYIIIING, IS GIVE PETER A CHAAAAAANCE to hang out with Captain America.

    The hacking of reams and reams of internal files, communications, and contact information from Sony Entertainment could be part of the plot of a Hollywood navel-gazing drama, or part of an intricate web of consequences in a Neal Stephenson novel, but instead it's... actually happening.

  4. Recent Sony Hack Reveals Huge Diversity Problems and Gender Pay Gap Among Top-Level Executives

    Who's surprised?

    On the off chance that you didn't already assume that an overwhelming majority of highly-paid movie executives in Hollywood are white and male, now the recent cyber attacks against Sony have proven that to be the case, at least for them. Thanks, maybe North Korea?

  5. North Korea Builds Its Own Tablet, Fails to Include the Internet

    Dear North Korea, This is not how you do technology. Points for effort, though. Sincerely, The Rest of the World

    North Korea has come out with what's basically its own version of an iPad: The Samjiyon. Unlike the iPad, which is used to access the Internet to get movies, books, and music in addition to communications and basic web-browsing, the Samjiyon does not get Wi-Fi, and is instead basically a touchscreen tablet devoted to delivering government propaganda and also slingshot games, because North Korea.

  6. North Korea Probably Detonated A Nuke This Morning — Here’s What’s Different This Time

    I hope you like things that are scary, because an unstable regime led by an untested young man probably just detonated its latest atomic bomb. All signs this morning point to a successful nuclear bomb test in North Korea, which the country has been threatening for some weeks. The move comes in defiance of the international community -- or as they are known in North Korea, "western devils jealous of the power and virility of glorious leader Kim Jong Un" -- which had urged North Korea not to undertake what is seen by the rest of the world as a clearly provocative and threatening action, probably because it is totally meant that way by North Korea.

  7. Activision Got YouTube to Pull North Korea’s Propaganda Video Over Modern Warfare 3 Footage

    I saw a propaganda video released by North Korea the other day, and did the obvious thing -- I made fun of its terrible production value. It was really bad. The highlight of the video from purely a graphics standpoint came when the video showed an American city burning. Why'd it look so good? Because North Korea stole the footage from Modern Warfare 3. The video has been removed from YouTube thanks to a complaint by Activision, the publishers of the game.

  8. North Korea Threatens United States With Early ’90s CGI Technology [UPDATED]

    As North Korea gets ready to perform a nuclear test, they're also stepping up their propaganda efforts, or at least they're trying to do so. A video released by the country's official website on Saturday shows a dream sequence of a unified Korea, spaceflight, and an unspecified American city being bombarded with missiles. The whole thing would be more frightening if the CGI graphics weren't at best on par with Home Improvement scene transitions and at worst like something out of 1980s Doctor Who.

  9. Here’s What Eric Schmidt Said About North Korea

    Not everyone was happy with former Google CEO Eric Schmidt's trip to North Korea, or its secretive nature, but it seems like now we have some details about what the whole thing was about. Schmidt posted on his Google+ account this morning, and said the goal was to talk to North Korea about a free and open Internet. The reason many people suspected Schmidt was making the trip was to increase Google's market into the country, but why can't it be both? Google would no doubt get one of its many fingers into an open North Korean Internet, so it could be a classic win-win for Google and the North Korean people.

  10. An Unexpected Journey: Google Chairman Eric Schmidt Set to Visit North Korea

    If you count yourself a devoted reader of all things Geekosystem, then you no doubt know that among our other self-imposed journalistic duties, one of them involves the constant and dedicated coverage of developments coming out of North Korea -- whether the news be legitimate, comedic, or -- typically -- a unique amalgamation that skates that fine line of being both. In keeping with this trend, South Korean officials have reported that Google chairman Eric Schmidt is scheduled to visit North Korea on a clandestine humanitarian mission, with the company itself pretty tight-lipped on the details surrounding the reason for this unorthodox trip. And as far as we know, it ain't a vacation.
