  1. Time Magazine Apologizes For Including Feminism In Poll of Words To Ban

    Huh. This oughta be good.

    So remember earlier this week when Time Magazine ran a poll of the most annoying words that should be banned next year, and the word "feminist" was on it? Yeah. They're real sorry about that.

    Commencing eyeroll sequence...

    Shhh... Listen. That's the sound of our abject surprise. Yes, it's supposed to sound like nothing, because it doesn't exist.

    How about "print media?"

    Yes, today was the day that Time Magazine went on record as wanting to shove chopsticks in their ears whenever somebody says the word "feminist."

  4. Agent Coulson on the Cover of Time Magazine

    Excelsior!

    Well, technically he's on the back cover (according to PPYAJuneBug on Tumblr), in an ad for Agents of SHIELD, but, good gag Marvel PR. Good gag. (via Tumblr.) Previously in Agents of SHIELD

  6. Time's Person Of The Year May Be A Cop-Out, But Not For The First Time

    Time's Person of the Year this year is officially "The Protester." I can see what they're getting at, but it does seem like something of a cop-out, right? I mean, "The Protester" is more like a Type-of-Person of the Year, or maybe the Class-Loadout of the Year. Besides that, Steve Jobs sure did spend a giant portion of the year dominating headlines. Of course, he might not have been a great person exactly, but that is up for debate. Also, let me remind you that Hitler (yes, that Hitler) was once Time's Person of the Year, and Stalin was twice. They aren't all heroes. On that note, as lame as "The Protester" might feel, there are way, way lamer ones in the past. Let's take a look, shall we?

  7. TIME Fondly Remembers How 4chan Hacked Last Year’s TIME 100 [Video]

    One year ago, 4chan thrust its Dear Leader moot -- and by extension, itself -- into the public eye when it hacked the online poll for the TIME 100, TIME's annual list of key influencers in a variety of fields. Not only that: They rigged the poll such that the names of the first 21 people spelled "Marblecake, also The Game." It was a truly epic hack. This post has more information on how it happened, and Urlesque has information on its, erm, cultural significance.

    TIME is running its online poll once again this year, but it's mostly been drama-free. There's a more international crowd than one might expect: The top five are currently Iranian opposition leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi, Chinese author and racecar driver Han Han, Korean figure skater Kim Yu-Na, noted Lady Gaga Lady Gaga, and -- of course -- Rain. But unless some diehard Nathan Myhrvold fan is trying to slip his name in there, probably no haxxing.

    So: the folks at TIME have made a video retrospective of last year's moot hack.

  8. Twitter Buys Tweetie: Developers Nervous

    In a move that has alarmed app makers, Twitter has acquired Atebits, the makers of Tweetie, the critically acclaimed Twitter app for iPhone and Mac. The $2.99 app has been reviewed in TIME and Wired, and won a 2009 Apple Design award. Loren Brichter, Atebits founder, weighed in on the Tweetie blog:
    It’s been a wild ride since 1.0, and over the last year and a half Tweetie has gone from a no-name app from a little known software company to an app hailed as one of the best mobile experiences around... and I’ve had the privilege of working with the folks at Twitter from the outside as their service evolved. Now I’ll be working with them on the inside. I’m happy to say that as of today Twitter is the proud owner of Tweetie - and I’m joining their mobile team and starting work on turning Tweetie.app into Twitter.app, for iPhone and iPad.
    This marks Twitter's first foray into providing an official client for its microblogging service.
