He's requesting a patent for only earth? Considering the size of the universe you would think that he'd try to monetize this moment and try other galaxies at least, though i've heard that Xenu might has dibs
According to figure 1, the music decline happened about the same time that autotune was first released therefore singers were putting in less effort and consumers responded by buying less until of course Rebecca Black came along and now they are starting to ease up (lol)
How come no one compares music and video entertainment to games? 30 years ago you could write the entire Invaders sfx in a few minutes and now it takes years for a game to be developed and yet the lifetime of games is only a few months IF it's extremely good, a few years and yet movies and music expect to put in the same amount of effort as they always have and expect the returns spanning decades in a ever evolving technological society that we live in today even though musicians ADMIT that they muck around to make lyrics/riffs and accidentally make a number 1 hit... you'd think the groupies would be enough but I guess the producers don't see any of that action
Watching a movie with popcorn was a necessity except that at movie theaters they put so much salt that you have to buy a drink... but so much that you have a mouthful of popcorn and right after a mouthful of drink to washout the salt, it was stupid.
Now, while at the movie theater, i don't buy either thanks to greed but i still have popcorn with just the right amount of salt watching movies at home :D
This looks like more of an Apple commercial than a parody. It wouldn't surprise me if Apple paid for this, their logos are already plastered all over movies and tv shows, most recently The Big Bang Theory, so why would advertising to kids be above them?
Ironically, had nokia sued apple from the get-go with the first infringement on the iphone when it was first available instead of letting it become a hit in the marketplace, the iphone wouldn't exist, lol
