Twittering from Opera

Always looking to save a second or two on repetitive tasks, I figured I'd check if Opera's magnificent keyword search feature could be used to post status updates to Twitter. Utilizing Twitters powerful API, I had this working within minutes...

Provided the opportunity

The web lit up yesterday on Tuesday on account of Iron Man being released on Blue-Ray and DVD, a release I've been waiting for given that I really want to see this movie but haven't had the opportunity. Thus you might think I have the evening planned, but alas, I haven't1; the release is US-only and I'm expected to wait yet another month...

Exit music (for a film)

Stumbled across this little gem earlier today on Twitter; A new music video from Radiohead for "All I Need", made in collaboration with MTV to raise awareness of the EXIT campaign. The video, definitively worth 3:48 of your time, makes one of the best and most intense songs from "In Rainbows" even more powerful.

The Rubberbandman

Iron Man flyingImagine you're a couple of days away from premiering a much avaited and much talked about movie. Imagine that a large online community is throwing a screening, inviting 600 fans, bloggers and influencers. What would you do? If you're Marvel; send a cease and desist letter demanding the event cancelled...
