On today's Daily Brief we check out the return of Myspace, a camera that captures every aspect of your life and the continuing embarrassment of the NFL's replacement refs.
First up, you heard me right. Myspace is making a comeback...with a little help from Justin Timberlake. Turns out the pop singer became an owner of the social networking site when it was acquired by Specific Media. The new Myspace has been completely rebuilt from scratch and looks kinda like what we'd expect if Facebook, Grooveshark and Microsoft put all their ideas in a blender. Which isn't the worst mix BTW. Plans are also in the works for a partnership between Myspace and Panasonic to create a new way to experience your favorite television shows. Check out the new promotional video and let us know what you think of the new Myspace...
Next up, whether on Myspace or Facebook or Twitter - if you're one of these people who use social networks to document every mundane detail of your life, we've got just the camera for you. Say hello to the autographer - a wearable, intelligent camera that promises to capture all those magic moments of your life. The autographer uses GPS, accelerometer and motion detectors sensors to determine when to snap a pic. You can preview shots on your smartphone and store up to 8GB of memories at a time. You guys ready to document your very existence? Well, register now and you can get your autographer in November.
And finally, can you hear that? That's the sound of angry football fans demanding the blood of the replacement refs who handed Seattle a controversial win over Green Bay last night. Yep, after awarding Seattle a game-deciding touchdown on a play that looked a lot more like an interception than a touchdown, it's become harder to justify the continuing presence of replacement officials in the NFL. However, the Lingerie Football League, aka the best thing ever, commented earlier today about how they had to fire some of the NFL's replacement refs due to incompetence. So what we have are referees to incompetent to officiate half-naked women's football refereeing in the NFL. What's it gonna take to save this year's football season? Rant and rave down below!
