Wednesday Round-up

December 18th

Alright if you’ve never read a wednesday round- up before here’s the situation: a lot of stuff is going on on the internet. We know it, you know it, that guy over there knows it; but don’t worry we’re here for you. We’ve searched and stumbled and clicked and skipped so you don’t have to.

Enjoy what we deem the best things this week!

From Doctor Who next to a ‘will filibuster for food’ sign to the rise of the Netflix original shows surrounding Edward Snowden and new Pope. This illustration shows the political issues (Obama and the ever present 404 error) and the entertainment phenomena (note pacific rim taking over most of the background). If we had to cram everything that happened this year into a pretty small illustration we would say this one is pretty freaking good.

To see how it got made check out Mario’s blog

Apple boasts about the amazing things this new CPU will be able to achieve with video editing, animation and 3D modeling, photography, design and layout, as well as audio. This new computer is all creative all the time, we will just have to wait and see if its cylindrical shape lives up to the hype.
