Netflix finally brings 'Watch Instantly' to Macs via Silverlight

Netflix finally brings 'Watch Instantly' to Macs via Silverlight - Engadget

In a move that seemed like it would never, ever, ever happen, Netflix has finally managed to bring its streaming video technology (and decent library) to Macs everywhere, thanks to Microsoft's Flash-esque also-ran, Silverlight. It seems that the software will allow the rental house to safely DRM its content where ever it goes via Redmond's Play Ready, thus leaping the hurdle that has kept some 12,000 movies and TV shows off of non-PC systems. Netflix claims that the new implementaiton in Sliverlight provides "breakthrough navigation for fast-forward and rewind," though fails to indicate exactly when this is all being rolled out (we assume immediately). Unfortunately for super-duper late adopters, the software will only work with Intel-based Macs, so if you've been holding onto a G3 for dear life, here's one more reason to finally can it, along with your Xbox 360 HD DVD player, Von Dutch trucker cap, and gas-guzzling Escalade.

Exciting!

Zombie plague hits Warcraft

[UPDATED] I was a teenage Zombie - WOW Insider

Cleverly inspired by their Hakkar's Poisoned Blood plague from a few years back, Warcraft has introduced a zombie plague to all of Azeroth. Heralding the return of Arthas, lord of the undead Scourge, infected supplies (blankets?) have shown up around the world. Players who open them gain a disease that slowly turns them into infectious zombies.

Clever. If I was still playing WoW I'd be out there right now munching on orc flesh and shambling around like an extra in Thriller.

When you turn into a zombie, you'll get a whole bunch of unique abilities. The first is Mangle!, which is your basic melee attack on a 3 second cooldown. It's fairly weak, but the best part of the ability is that it seems to shave minutes off infections. Attacking players or NPCs will infect them, so be ready to spread the plague. Players and NPCs that die with infections will transform into zombies immediately, as will players whose infections run the course naturally or through zombie attacks. With a little cooperation, you'll soon have a zombie army of your own!

Much more at the link.

Sony's "Little Big Planet" faces worldwide recall for fear of offending muslims

Littlebigplanet: LittleBigPlanet Faces Worldwide Recall For Qur'an References

"During the review process prior to the release of LittleBigPlanet, it has been brought to our attention that one of the background music tracks licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur'an," admitted the company in a statement.

. . .

The words are: 1- In the 18th second: "كل نفس ذائقة الموت" ("kollo nafsin tha'iqatol mawt", literally: 'Every soul shall have the taste of death'). 2- Almost immediately after, in the 27th second: "كل من عليها فان" ("kollo man alaiha fan", literally: 'All that is on earth will perish').

Just to be clear: it's offensive to some muslims to use the Qur'An in song.

Obama ads appearing in Burnout, the car-crashingest video game ever

Obama takes campaign to Burnout's Paradise City - Joystiq

A lot of games have dynamic ads now, fed from a central server someplace. Still I'm surprised to see Obama ads here. I thought Doritos or Red Bull locked up the ads for the next decade.
