Hollywood and Google Still Fighting Over SOPA

The SOPA fight still isn’t over. Its latest proponent? Hollywood.

according to emails uncovered by the recent Sony hack and recent news stories, the movie industry is still fighting to revive the bill, even pushing Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood to make life uncomfortable for Google, one of the bill’s biggest detractors. And Google isn’t too happy about it.

On Friday, the search giant filed legal papers in federal court against Hood, requesting that the court stop his demands for information from the company. The move came a day after the company had unloaded a rather pointed blog post complaining about apparent efforts by the Motion Picture Association of America to revive SOPA and push an investigation of Google through Hood’s office.

10 Types of Odd Friendships You’re Probably a Part Of

It’s very fabulous. It casts humor and light on the kinds of relationships people have these days. Everything’s weird. Most friendships are odd anymore and this article is honest about that.

http://waitbutwhy.com/2014/12/10-types-odd-friendships-youre-probably-part.html

There are great graphics, and of course, the list of the ten odd friendships. I’m sure that you’ll find one that you’ll relate to. There’s the “Non-character breaking friendship Who You Always Have to be ‘On’ With.” That would be the one who you do the platitudes with to a certain degree, which ends up with you both assuming caricatures of yourselves to please the other and keep it “light.” Then there’s the “Non Question-Asking Friend,” and more.

Airlines Say They’re Being Cheated By Skiplagged Airfare Savings Site

Originally posted on CBS New York:

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Airfares seem to keep on climbing, but a 23-year-old computer whiz found a way to save you hundreds of dollars on airline tickets.

As CBS2’s Emily Smith reported, Skiplagged.com helps you find what are called “hidden city” airfares with a few clicks of a mouse. And the site is creating some turbulence with travel industry giants.

With little more than a mattress on the floor, Aktarer Zaman’s tiny Manhattan apartment serves as the hub of operations for Skiplagged. The website works thusly – a traveler looks to fly from Newark to Miami, but might find it’s actually cheaper to buy a ticket to Charleston with a stopover in Miami.

“So the cheapest here (for that route) is $325,” Zaman explained.

Yahoo travel executive editor Laura Begley Bloom said the idea has been around for years.

“This has been a dirty little secret of the travel industry…
