Johnny Depp aka Captain Jack Sparrow just gave the fan’s at Comic Con this special announcing that Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be in theaters on May 20, 2011. I thought the 3rd movie one put an end to this series but I guess Disney wants to try and milk this 4th film into another huge summer blockbuster.
Free Wi-Fi servers on the New York City subways?! I’m down with it as long as the MTA prices don’t keep raising! Our Twitter game is going to be CRAZY now that we can tweet from underground! Just joking…but follow us anyways!
Not only will the city’s subway stations be rigged to support your handheld electronic devices, but chatty citizens will be allowed to make calls in between stops, too. Is there anything worse than this?
The MTA reached a deal with a company called Transit Wireless three years ago to enable cell phone service in subway stations, but the firm never proceeded with the plans. Now it’s back on the front burner, apparently, and the plans are even more ambitious than before considering they’re planning to install both phone signal and internet access underground. And where the stops are close enough together—and the tunnels are wider—riders should have coverage during their entire underground journey, says an official from Q-Wireless, one of the four companies working with Transit Wireless to install the subterranean transmissions. This is a travesty. For many people the subway is the only place to not only get away from the nagging of your own iPhone or Droid, but also to end all the chattering, inane conversations of your fellow citizens.
Under the current deal, Transit Wireless has two more years to install the technology in six test stations and then eight years to wire all 277 subway stations. Cell phones in stations we can kind of understand, but allowing people to have conversations while commuting may bring about the end civilization as we know it. And, really, why does the subway need wi-fi? So that you can download porn onto your iPad on the 6 Train? Really? Everyone knows the subway is for jerking off while looking at real people. Come on!
