Original iphone announcement by Steve Jobs in 2007

Hard to believe it’s been ten years but it was Macworld 2007 and Apple had been teasing that they were going to make an announcement that would be revolutionary. By this point the iphone had been rumored and making the round in various sites and constantly making the front page of Digg. So why don’t we take a look back and see this impressive keynote Steve Jobs gave a decade ago.

As rumors started popping up about Apple making a cell phone I remember not being impressed as I had no need of an ipod and a phone in one as I already had both and it wasn’t a problem at all since phones with internet weren’t something new exactly either. While I didn’t get the appeal of it at first that quickly changed throughout the year as hackers started putting different programs which became known as “apps”, that’s right the first iphone didn’t have the app store, that launched one year later but that was the time I saw that this was a game changer and I was in line once the second iphone released. But let’s take a look at the presentation that changed the world.

Looking back on.. Tetris – From Russia with Love documentary

In the mid 2000’s the BBC had a documentary on the hit game Tetris that shows us most of its early history from its creation to its early life. That may not sound as the most appealing thing to watch and you might think that it’s boring but that couldn’t be further from truth as what we have here is an extremely fascinating story that ranges from console wars to the cold war.

Looking back on.. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


As I’ve mentioned a few times I have a problem with the Star Wars spin-offs and it being annualized. But I enjoyed a lot of things about the film even if there are too many “Why?”s for me to actually say I liked it. As much as I did not like The Force Awakens I think Episode VII is a better movie even if this movie has far less things that annoy me if that makes any sense. Going in I had accidentally read a few spoilers but of stuff I already knew or suspected was going to happen so it didn’t affect me a lot.

Looking back on.. The New Adventures of Captain S

I remember seeing The New Adventures of Captain S advertised on Screwattack as I went there to watch the Angry Video Game Nerd and thinking it was stupid but it wasn’t until a few years later that I was curious and checked it out and was pleasently surprised, it’s hard to describe what this show actually is but I’ll give it a shot.

Looking back on.. Godzilla’s Hanna-Barbera cartoon

Godzilla had a cartoon made in the late 70’s by Hanna-Barbera and well it’s umm..something. As a kid I loved Godzilla but whenever re-runs of this show aired on Cartoon Network I found it difficult to sit through. The show seems to have been made by people who didn’t know what Godzilla was and just used what they thought he was and went along with it. The characters or setting is never really explained you just know that you have some people on a ship who live with this creature called Godzooki that encounter monsters but Godzilla helps them out. Apparently the series bible explains this Godzooky, who is Godzilla’s nephew and he was in danger but the crew of the Calico saved his life and Godzilla protects the crew as a reward.
