Anti-Waterboarding Ad: Amnesty International

Amnesty unveils shock ‘waterboarding’ film.

“The water is poured very carefully over the nose – you keep a constant pour. You are drowning in water but you don’t have the ability to hold your breath. You feel the water going in, you understand that water is filling your lungs” said The Independent.

The advertisement can also be seen at www.unsubscribe-me.org from today and at 50 cinemas from next month onwards.

The air force needs Playstation 3

The American Air Force Research Laboratory has just issued a shopping list to FBO which includes 300 Playstaion 3. They claimed it is for a “research” regarding certain cell processors. The processors in the Sony PlayStation 3 are the only brand on the market that utilizes the specific cell processor characteristics needed for this program at an acceptable cost.

It is, however, still uncertain from the above report what exactly does the air force what the PS3s for. My guess would be for National Missile Defence (remember few years ago when there was a rumor saying that the Iraqi military secretly bought numbers of PS2s and use the chips for missiles?)

Or, they’re simply buying the PS3s for a massive game play of “Call of Duty 4.” Who knows? There’s gotta be some recreational activities right?
