Pirate Bay reaches 25 million peers

According to the article from Techradar Swedish website The Pirate Bay has hit 25 million record users, just two months after hitting 15 million peers on its file-sharing tracking network.

That means more people are downloading Pirate-tracked music, movies, TV shows and software using the BitTorrent protocol than there are people in Scandinavia. The site's founders have asked the Guinness Book of Records to recognize it as the world's largest torrent tracker.

Co-founder Peter Sunde suggested the content owners to get onboard and try to work with the people they brand as pirates to find a way to distribute movies and more legally. He urged "Stop hating the future. Be smart and come over from the dark side." We fully support you Peter!

Arrested Development Movie is ON!!!

I have been waiting for this news for a long time. The best comedy series since Seinfeld left us in tears when it unexpectedly ended after only 3 hilarious seasons According to the Redeye article Arrested Development movie project has a "GO".

That’s according to star Jeffrey Tambor anyway, who told Steve Weintraub of that the much-rumored film is a go. Tambor said he talked to “AD” creator Mitch Hurwitz last week, who said it was on.

Tambor didn’t know any specifics about the project, but said that fans can be sure it’s happening.

“When the writer calls you, and the director, and the executive producer calls you, it’s a pretty good sign,” Tambor said in the interview, which you can watch for yourself at Collider.

Tambor said he’s looking forward to revisiting “Arrested Development” and his character, George Bluth Sr.

“We want to close that,” he said. “We want to bring that all to fruition.”

The show starred Tambor, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Tony Hale, David Cross and Jessica Walter, among others.

Here is a collection of funny Bluth moments:

Theory of Relativity

Are you confused about the theory of relativity? Still not completely sure what it is? Here is the definition from the master himself:

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

Facebook Users Attacked by Trojan Virus!

I just want to give you a heads up. Apparently there is a serious threat. According to the Schipul Blog Facebook and its users are having a rough day. A serious Facebook virus is attacking the network’s users.

If you receive a Facebook message (or a Facebook message alert in your email) with a questionable subject line, DO NOT CLICK THE LINK IN THE BODY!

All of the information in this post was garnered from an awesome article from by Narelle Towie.

Questionable subject titles vary from “Maan,yyou’re great!” to “your ass looks not bad in this video”, “Some0ne thinks your special and has a *Hot_Crush* on you. Find out who it could be*” or a youtube link that says ‘”i can see yooooooooo”. These links disguise a trojan worm and should not be clicked.

This trojan comes just months after Facebook said it was working to protect its user from phishing scams.

For the tech geeks, here is a more detailed explanation of the virus from Towie’s article:

FACEBOOK users are under attack from a virus sweeping through the online social network.

The virus is technically a trojan worm that disguises itself as an email from

People are enticed to click on a misspelled video or picture link that directs to a malicious web site.

The worm spreads its tentacles by emailing everyone on the victim’s friend list.

According to anti-virus software company Symantec, the trojan works by executing a worm called W32.Koobface.A that searches for cookies on the user’s machine.

If the worm finds the appropriate Facebook cookie, it modifies the users account settings and profile - adding links to malicious sites to trick others into installing the invader.

Facebook discussion boards talk about the trojan directing users to a page which looks like YouTube.

The phony page asks the user to install a video player upgrade.

Installing the fake upgrade allows the worm to work its magic and access files on the victim’s machine while destroying their Facebook account.

Facebook has begun combating the virus by deactivating link when it can.

Facebook has not released an official comment regarding the attack.
