Forty-eight hours of footage are uploaded to YouTube every minute, adding up to nearly 8 years of content daily. And YouTube isn’t just for the young crowd. Even though YouTube lists its demographic as 18-54 years old, Pew found that nearly one-third of online Americans age 65 and older uses video sharing sites. Parents are also 20 percentage points more likely to have used a video sharing site than non-parents.

Recently built over in Buffalo for a winter festival, this maze consists of 2,200 blocks of ice which weigh about 300 pounds each. The maze itself m easured in at 12,855 square feet beating the previous record-owner by a whopping 4,575 square feet. Wow.

[the footage] was in a batch of 200,000 tapes that were degaussed -- magnetically erased -- and reused to save money. So NASA took television video copies of what Apollo 11 beamed to Earth 40 years ago to a Hollywood film-restoration company, which made the pictures look sharper.

Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.

Looks pretty decent so far although I could have done with a few less 'yars' from LeChuck. Reminder: 6 days left to pre-order. Also, Monkey Island Special Edition comes out on July 15 (after Tales of MI - which is strange).
