Best of the Week – 3612

Here we go with with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.

Movie Trailer of the Week: 
James Bond: Skyfall – In theatres November 9th, 2012

Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. Daniel Craig returns as 007 in the 23rd bond film to date (I’m not counting the non ‘EON’ production films), this time with a new Q, the same M and of course, a mastermind villain.

Video Mashup of the Week:
Like A Bad White Guy Party Gangnam Style – PSY, LMFAO, Dev, Offspring, Bloodhound Gang

I’m already a big fan of PSY‘s Gangnam Style video, so what makes more sense than to find an awesome mash up that throws in some LMFAO, Dev, The Offspring and The Bloodhound Gang.

News Article of the Week:

Although it may not be that exciting for most people, this could pave the way for the biggest breakthrough in computing since the embedded circuit. Instead of using electrical currents passing through transistors, diodes and resistors; these new chips would manipulate millions of photons, in essence, Light. These new chips can be made over 1000 times smaller then existing chips, thus enabling us to make smaller devices, and connect device that were never possible before. I can’t wait for my Star Trek style communicator.

eBay Auction of the Week:
A Frickin Mystery Box!!!!

I’m not even joking… $10,000 for a mystery box that has a hint of ‘Piece of Art’. I could draw a stick figure and call it art.
