  2. We Sat On The Iron Throne At HBO’s Game of Thrones Exhibition In NYC

    Winter Is Coming

    I knew I made a great life choice living in New York. It just happens to be one of the stops on HBO and Time Warner Cable's traveling Game of Thrones exhibition. The great part about this exhibition? It's open to the public and free to enter! I was lucky enough to be able to attend the grand opening party last night in Manhattan, saw some pretty cool things, and met some amazing people. It's one thing to see these props and costumes in pictures but it really is fantastic to see them in person. Take a look at what the exhibition has to offer.

  3. HBO CEO Teases Everyone With Talk of Bundling HBO Go With Internet Service

    If you want to have your Game of Thrones and watch it where you like, there's HBO Go, a streaming service not unlike Netflix -- except it isn't like Netflix, because you can have Netflix all by itself. To have HBO Go, you need to have HBO, the cable service. Well, that could potentially change here soon. Possibly. Maybe. Have we mentioned it's pretty tenuous?

  4. Time Warner and AT&T Want Some of That Sweet Google Fiber Deal, Because of Course They Do

    Google Fiber -- Google's incredible Internet service -- is set to make some pretty impressive waves in Kansas City, MO and Kansas City, KS when it finally rolls out. We know this, Google knows this, the citizens of Kansas City know this, and now it's apparent that Time Warner and AT&T know this too. See, Google got a series of sweet deals out of Kansas City to build up the infrastructure required to host gigabit Internet connections and the other carriers in the area want a slice of that pie, because of course they do.

  5. That Time Star Trek’s Patrick Stewart & William Shatner Tweeted About Horrible Time Warner Cable Service

    Dammit Jim!

    Last week, I was delighted to find out Star Trek: The Next Generation's Sir Patrick Stewart was not only on Twitter, but his username was @SirPatStew. I marveled at him having the same problem many Brooklyn, New York residents have (he recently moved there) - horrible service from cable companies. In this particular instance, Stewart was complaining about Time Warner Cable and it just so happens William Shatner has been shaking his fist at the same company from the West Coast.

  6. Marvel Comics Listed As A SOPA Supporter

    BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE

    The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), or Protect-IP Act as it's called in the House of Representatives, has been the talk of the internet-town (and regular towns) for  months. Once everyone realized the implications this particular bill, they got extremely nervous and concerned phone calls and letters started pouring into Washington. The matter is still waiting to be settled when Congress returns from their winter recess but a list has surfaced showing particular companies who are in support of the controversial bill. And one of them is Marvel Entertainment.

  7. The Fall of Cartoon Network

    Essay

    Have you noticed anything different about the programming on Cartoon Network? How about the fact that there’s a dramatic decrease in actual good, quality cartoons? Before we get right down to the problem, I would like you to jump into my time machine, back to 1994 when Cartoon Network Studios was born. I’m not going to bore you with too many details, but what made Cartoon Network so great was its original programming -- overseen by the president of the network, Jim Samples. The What-A-Cartoon! Show premiered in 1995 and showcased a slew of new cartoon ideas, many of which eventually got their own series including Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and so on.

  9. Flashback From 1998: When Altavista, Lycos, And Blue Mountain Arts Ruled the Web

    (Before we dig too far into this, you may want to visit the 56k Modem Emulator, to establish the proper sonic mood. Ah, that beloved squeal.) A colleague (who is handsome and wise) recently discovered an old Media Metrix report delineating "World Wide Web Audience Ratings" for December 1998. It's a remarkable study, categorizing thousands of sites and conglomerated web companies. This thing is like finding election results from 1880; like coming across the original Billboard music chart. It looks familiar, like you should know all of the component elements, but it's unrecognizable. As though they're all brands made up for movies. The Rankings Home and Work, Combined We'll start where the report starts - at those sites most popular when combining home and work visits. (Please see above diagram for clarification.) Before I list them, I want you to try and think up what the top fifty websites were in 1998. Got it? Yeah, you're wrong:
