CHIP is a $9 Raspberry Pi killer

The Raspberry Pi was definitely a game changer when it hit shelves at only $35. But CHIP is hoping to make the Pi look positively pricey by comparison. The Kickstarter campaign has already blown way past its $50,000 goal. In fact, at the time of this…

Wheelchair-Bound Woman with No Legs Wins Treadmill on the Price is Right

Life is short and cruel and then you get on the Price is Right.

Case in point: Danielle Perez, a woman in a wheelchair who made it on the show Tuesday only to scoop up a brand-new treadmill.

According to CNN, Perez—who lost her legs in a 2004 accident—says the show edited out the audience’s “awkward” reaction.

She said the strangest thing about her win was the reaction of the staff members on the show.

“I kept thinking that it was a really big joke,” she said with a laugh, “But there was no irony in their cheers or applause.”

Despite a collective and awkward pause from the audience that she said was edited out of the show, “Everyone at CBS seemed genuinely excited for me that I won.”

According to a spokesperson for the show, “Every member of The Price Is Right studio audience has a chance to be selected to play… Prizes are determined in advance of the show and are not decided based on the contestants.”

Perez tells CNN she’ll probably just use the $2,400 treadmill as a “piece of furniture.”

Comcast officially gives up on Time Warner Cable merger

The rather unpopular, $45 billion merger attempt between Comcast and Time Warner Cable has been officially called off. In a very brief statement, Comcast CEO Brian L. Roberts said that he would have liked to pair the two companies together, but governmental pressure has killed the deal. The biggest objection to the deal was that the pair would be so close to a monopoly that it would have no reason to compete, raising the ire of both the FCC and Justice Department. Unlike the failed AT&T – T-Mobile deal a few years back, it doesn’t appear as if either party has to pay a severance fee to the other, which should make walking away a little easier.

Did Michael Jackson Prank Call Russell Crowe With Great Jokes for Years?

Did Michael Jackson Prank Call Russell Crowe With Great Jokes for Years?

There are certain things we all know about Michael Jackson. The moonwalk, for one. His large catalogue of very good songs, and then also Weird Al Yankovic’s catalogue of very good Michael Jackson song parodies, for another. We know that he was friends, in a way, with Macaulay Culkin—etc., etc. But there is one thing I bet almost none of us know about Michael Jackson, and that is: he was perfect at prank phone calls.

In a fairly bonkers interview with the Guardian—which I suppose I recommend reading in its entirety, though, really, you only get one life and I don’t know if that’s how you want to spend it—make your own decision—Russell Crowe casually mentions the incredible prank call-exclusive relationship he had with the late Michael Jackson:

"For two or three fucking years," he says. "I never met him, never shook his hand, but he found out the name I stayed in hotels under, so it didn’t matter where I was, he’d ring up do this kind of thing, like you did when you were 10, you know. ‘Is Mr Wall there? Is Mrs Wall there? Are there any Walls there? Then what’s holding the roof up? Ha ha.’ You’re supposed to grow out of doing that, right?"

Grow out of what, exactly, Russell Crowe? Amazing jokes? Not sure why you would want to grow out of telling amazing jokes—the color green does not look good on you, my friend.

CBS points out this is not the first time Crowe has mentioned MJ’s prank calls, speaking to the Sun in 2013:

"He’d ring me and in a strong voice and say, ‘There is an emergency and you need to leave the building.’ I’d ask, ‘Who is this?’ And he’d say, ‘Do not worry Russell, just kidding, this is Michael.’"

Do not worry Russell, just kidding, this is Michael.

🙂

Perfect.

Maybe take his advice and do not worry about the prank calls Michael Jackson tortured you with for two or three years, Russell. And anyway—are there any Walls there? 😉
