  6. Are The Birds Of Prey Set For An Appearance On Arrow Season 2?

    DO WANT

    We already had a Birds of Prey television show. While it wasn't quite what everyone would have hoped for, I stand by my love for it. The next time we saw Black Canary was on Smallville and that's all I have to say about that. But last season on Arrow we were introduced to Huntress and we know a new Canary will appear in Season 2. Can they complete the trifecta and get us a Barbara Gordon for a new Birds of Prey team? Hit the jump to find out!

  8. Kaspersky’s Top 10 Computer Vulnerabilities Includes Not a Single One From Microsoft

    Microsoft typically gets a bad rap from the security community. To be fair, the company's history hasn't exactly been full of reasons for folks to think that they're terribly secure, but perhaps that's all about to change. Kaspersky Lab, one of the major worldwide IT security companies, just released their IT Threat Evolution report for the third quarter, and Microsoft's managed to not be included at all in the top 10 products with vulnerabilities. Seriously.

  9. Oracle Ordered to Pay Google Just Over $1 Million in Legal Costs

    Back in July, we reported that Google sought to have its legal costs reimbursed for the shenanigan-filled trial that Oracle brought to bear against the search engine giant. At the time, Google wanted to squeeze Oracle for as much as they could, and thus requested over $4 million to cover their expenses. As of yesterday, it looks like Google will have to settle for a fraction of that amount. The courts have ruled that Oracle will have to hand over $1,130,350 to their opponent.

  10. Watch Stephanie Brown Kick Ass In Batgirl: Spoiled, An Upcoming Web Series

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Batgirl: Spoiled is an upcoming web series created by Sax Carr and Marisha Ray that follows Stephanie Brown, the third Batgirl, as she endeavors to understand her place in Gotham and the Bat family. This trailer is mostly a proof of concept, with some character development thrown in at the end, but let me just say this is an amazing project. I'm pretty sure I audibly squealed "OMG" when I saw Oracle, Batwoman, and Renee Montoya on the screen. And while it's definitely missing Stephanie's quick quips and comebacks, I'm sure it'll come in time with an actual episode, and honestly, her cocky smile was enough for me. Check out the project's Facebook page, and join us as we wait on the edge of our seat for the first episode. (via Youtube.)

  12. Google Requests $4,000,000 for Legal Costs in Android Trial

    Not that long ago, Oracle basically lost an infringement case against Google concerning various Java APIs and the way they were utilized in the Android operating system. The judge decided that the structure, sequence, and order of those APIs wasn't covered by existing copyright law and threw out the majority of the claims against Google. And now, after everything fell through for Oracle, Google is demanding reimbursement to the tune of $4,000,000 in legal costs.

  14. A Lesson In Illustrating Wheelchairs From Someone Who Uses One

    Allow Us To Explain

    Not too long ago I asked a famous comic book artist to draw me a picture of Oracle and what I got was not at all what I expected. Barbara Gordon was depicted in a hospital wheelchair with a blanket over her legs, certainly not the Oracle I know. "How could big name-so-and-so not know how to draw someone in a wheelchair?" I said to myself but then I thought, "Probably because they aren't in one." That's just one possible scenario of course, there are plenty of artists out there (like Adam Hughes above) who get it right. But if there's a problem we all suffer from at times it's ignorance. Yes...all of us. Some more than others of course but even the most learned of us could do with a bit of education now and then and that's my goal today. It's certainly not meant as a dig, but through the years, it's become obvious to me that a lot of people are oblivious to the every day lives of people with disabilities (PWD). And that's why awareness and education are important. It's not that people don't care (although some might not), it's that they truly don't know what's appropriate in certain situations. Read on for a few examples of different types of wheelchairs, as well as those who use them, plus some commentary by a creator and an actor who are close to the topic at hand.

  16. 10 Non-Costumed, Non-Powered Female Heroines

    Power Grid

    Now that March is nearly upon us -- less than 24 hours away, actually -- it's obvious that many of us are excited about The Hunger Games coming to theaters in just about three weeks. But one of the major elements of Suzanne Collins' trilogy is how exceptionally ordinary the protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, is. She's just a normal girl, thrown into a horrible situation, and then she handles the crap out of it. She sends a message that fantastical superpowers aren't all that necessary if there is a battle afoot. Even an epically huge, life-or-death battle that concerns the welfare of a country, a planet, or even a universe. This week, we're talking about Katniss' predecessors -- superheroines of geekdom who don't wear costumes, nor do they have superpowers. Some of them might be barely educated or inexperienced, some of them are wildly smart. But what they all have in common is that if you have them on your team in a fight, you will win. Hands down.

  17. 10 Great Fictional Female Hackers

    Power Grid

    The secretly female computer whiz is such a common trope these days that I've almost come to expect it. Oooh, there's this super 1337 hacker who the whole male cast is in awe of, but they have no idea who they are and they need their help. Then, unexpectedly, the first time they meet, that hacker is totally a hot chick. Then, about half the time, there is sexual tension. But as tired as the reveal is, we have to admit that the trope itself has given us some of our favorite characters in movies, TV, and literature; obviously nerdy, intelligent girls who kick ass and sometimes get boys. It also goes hand in hand with our favorite anachronistic tech-films, but we'll get to that. Grab your 28.8k modem and join us for ten of our favorite lady hackers.

  18. Our Favorite TDKR Rumor of the Day: One Of These Women Might Actually Be in TDKR

    Rumory

    I was going to stick this into the "hold on to your butts" category because...woah...but since there's no confirmation I chose "rumory." We've just heard that a certain DC Comics superheroine might have a role in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and that a famous actress has already been filming as her. The HUGE spoiler and a photo that corroborates the story is under the cut.

  19. Review: Batgirl #1

    Review

    Yesterday evening I trotted out to my favorite international comic book store chain, intending to pick up my first three comics of the DCnU, and, because of Labor Day related delays, was only able to get one of them. This seems like something that DC probably should have worked out with Diamond Comics Distributors, but I digress. I'm not sure if this is a review of Batgirl #1 so much as it is an attempt to give you enough information about it so that you can decided whether you want to buy it. Which... I guess is actually the purpose of a review. Lets get started. I'm keeping it spoiler light.

  20. TheKilling Joke is in the DCnU’s Batgirl #1

    Cautiously Optimistic

    The New York Post, DC's go to news outlet for leaking various bits of comic book information, has a six page preview for Gail Simone and Ardian Syaf's Batgirl #1, which handily answers a lot of the continuity questions that arose when DC announced that paradoxically, Barbara Gordon would be Batgirl and the events of The Killing Joke (the Alan Moore comic in which she is paralyzed by the Joker) would remain canon.
