Tired of greedy corporations like +Disney bleeding every possible cent from their fans by releasing inferior blu-rays in April then releasing the real 3D versions around December?

There's a super simple solution. Just buy the real version from +Amazon.co.uk and wait through 11 days of international shipping instead of 8 months or so for Disney to release the same product here.

Boom. A simple F-U to needles corporate greed.

When getting around Disney's naked money grab is so ridiculously easy why does anyone still play their game?

Nope. Region free. I played them when they arrived to make sure. There's a different selection of alternate language tracks than usual but the main movie plays fine.

This is my favorite +Neela Sky picture of the week. It's my best attempt yet capturing the softness of Neela sleeping in the sun while keeping the bright colors surrounding her.

Thanks +Nik Photography and HDR Efex Pro 2.

Zeeks pizza in Redmond is my new favorite pizza. Obviously they make a great pizza. Who puts broccoli on pizza? They do and it's awesome. But almost as important they fixed one of my pet peeves with ordering pizza. Want extra cheese? That'll be extra. Order with no cheese? La la la, thanks for your cheese money. But Zeeks discounts the price of their pizza for everything you take off. No cheese on your pizza? Here have $2 back.

It's entirely possible that I've now eaten from Zeek's more than any other restaurant, since there's one about five blocks away from me, and I've now been in this house for 14 years.

Here it is. The worst thing I've ever heard. I'm sorry.

That might be one of the worst things I've heard. But your apology needs to be for the fact that I've now had lines from it stuck in my head for two days.

Two awesome things here. One, Beast Mode sunglasses. Right? Two, +Shopify accepts Bitcoin. I didn't know that. The Shopify footer advertising their methods of payment doesn't know it either. But if you click all the way through the purchase bitcoin shows up as a payment option. That's really cool.

Quietly and magically all the sites using Shopify for their ecommerce system just joined the Bitcoin party. Welcome.

Here's what I found looking at this year's +Seattle Seahawks charter seat license sales. Winning the Super Bowl raised prices per seat by $5K. Seats on the Seahawks side are $4K more than the visitors side. And someone paid $80,000 for a pair of front row seats. $80K!

Ah, Seahawks madness...
All Seahawks season tickets are sold out and basically have been forever. The Seahawks have a Blue Pride waiting list you can join for $100 to reserve a spot in line to buy tickets when they eventually become available. But e...

Kind of like +Keurig and their DRM coffee machines the +Girl Scouts seem to be teaching girls the benefits of adding DRM to food.

I know it's a silly thing to pay attention to and ultimately doesn't matter at all. But it's strange to advertise ethical teachings inches from odd consumer limits and rules for enjoying your new snack.

Has anyone else noticed that the Girl Scout cookies they're eating are full or DRM? The box says selling the cookies teaches the girls business ethics. But if you look at the bottom of the box it clearly states you cannot res...

My favorite part of Earl's Super Bowl 48 essay is the section about the crowd chanting L.O.B! L.O.B! (Legion of Boom!)

This doesn't happen at CenturyLink field home games but somehow it spontaneously happened at the Super Bowl and kept going through most of the game. I knew we were being loud but I didn't know we were loud enough for the players to hear us that clearly. 

 "Thinking back, there was one thing that really stuck out to me at the game: When the crowd started chanting, “L.O.B.” My heart dropped when I heard that. The WHOLE stadium was chanting, “L.O.B! L.O.B!" I couldn't believe it. I was thinking, “Man, this is crazy.”"

Go Earl Thomas! Go Legion of Boom! Go +Seattle Seahawks!
I’ve been trying for days to put into words how it felt becoming Super Bowl Champions. To be honest, all I can say is it felt right. It felt normal. …

We either got the bad crew, or got the good crew on their worst day. They created several problems in our yard. To start with they cut down a tree that was marked to keep. It wasn't supposed to be cut, one because we didn't want it cut, and two it was unclear if it was on our neighbors property. But they cut it anyway. Then they butchered our landscaping. One side of our house is an open path to the back yard. The other side has carefully installed landscaping. The crew decided to pull the debri they took (they left a fair amount behind) right through our landscaping. They couldn't even be bothered to carry the branches. So they tore up our plants and scattered gravel all over the garden as they drug the debri they took across the ground and over our plants and bushes. There is now dirt where there used to be gravel, gravel where there used to be bark, and damaged plants where there used to be spring. They're going to try and fix things, but even if they do, I still wouldn't recommend dealing with them.

Slow, expensive, and unprofessional. When I called he said it would take 20 minutes to get to my house. 15 minutes later he called back saying it would be another 20 minutes. 30 minutes after that he arrived. Somehow it took 45 minutes to drive the 1.5 miles to my home. When he arrived he quoted $140 to drill out the lock and ruin it, or $160 to open it. After opening the lock he said there was an additional $25 house call fee. This is at 4:00 on a weekday. And finally he required a check made out to him personally and not to Redmond Around the Clock Service. I’ve needed locksmith services 3 times in Redmond and this was by far the worst experience.
