Gallery of Awesomely-Named Products

Manofest has a stellar gallery of “awesomely named” products.  These are products like the Creamy Ball, the Bimbo Sandwich, the Finger Marie, and the Mini-Dicmann’s.  The crazy part, though, is that most of the products aren’t even butchered Engrish products from Japan.  These are things that you can purchase in the good old U.S. of A.

New Lonely Island Ft. T-Pain Video: "I'm On a Boat"

In this soon-to-be-classic new SNL Digital Short, The Lonely Islanders hit the high seas with T-Pain and rap about grilling burgers, drinkin' crisp champagne and how awesome their giant boat is. The best part has to be when T-Pain sings about having sex with a mermaid in his classic Auto-Tune voice. []

Cate Blanchett is Less Sexy Than Sienna Miller?!

It’s looking like Cate Blanchett might replace Sienna Miller as Maid Marian in Ridley Scott’s consistently stifled Nottingham. The original rumor about Sienna Miller leaving/being ousted from the movie was that she was either too pretty to stand side by side the rough-hewn Russell Crowe or that he’s too overweight to look good standing next to her. More likely, her acting isn’t up to par, and now Blanchett might just wind up taking up the Robin Hood reins. Blanchett and Crowe is certainly a more sublime coupling anyhow; it’s about time the Aussie shared some screen time with an actor who’s as talented as himself. Looks like he might get that chance – and Scott might finally get to make his picture. [Cinematical]

Researchers Aim to Engineer a Human Brain

The number of calculations the human brain can complete is astronomical especially when you consider that the amount of energy it uses is less than a tenth of what even small computers use.  This is because its neurons are connected in a completely different, organic way than a normal circuit board is.  Researchers on the Cognitive Computing Project are trying to change that by going back to the drawing board and making a computer that works like our brains. "Here there are no instructions," says one researcher. "What we have are basic learning principles so we need to give neural circuits a world where they can have experiences and learn from them." []

"Maximum" Bob Lutz to Step Down as GM Car Czar

According to General Motors, the automaker's own horsepower-loving Car Czar will transition from his current role as Vice Chairman – Global Product Development to the position of Vice Chairman and Senior Advisor on April 1 and officially retire at the end of the year. The automotive world is sure to be a quieter place. Lutz's absence means that there will be some very big shoes to fill in GM's executive ranks, and GM's Board of Directors has responded by promoting Thomas G. Stephens to Lutz's vacated role, again effective in early April. Past vehicles brought to market under Lutz's watch at GM include the 2004 Pontiac GTO, the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky duo and, most recently, the Pontiac G8 sports sedan. One major project that won't quite be completed when Lutz leaves is the Chevy Volt, a vehicle championed by Lutz since its debut as a concept back in 2007. []
