'Gotham High' parody trailer injects Dark Knight characters into teen romantic comedy

When a movie series does as well as the recent Dark Knight movies, Hollywood tends to go the prequel route in order to tell another side of its blockbuster movies that couldn't be told before. Before something like that happens to this beloved franchise, movie clips TRAILERS decided to take it upon themselves to not only provide a gag prequel trailer to the Dark Knight series, but to make a really good one set in "Gotham High."

The mock trailer includes all of the notable characters from the Dark Knight series. You'll see Bruce Wayne, The Joker and even a 30-year old looking Harvey Dent. All of the footage has been taken from the earlier works of the actors who played those roles, and thankfully, many of them happened to come up the same route as you'll see a lot of school-related material here.

Iron Man 3 trailer gets low budget remake

It was just a few weeks ago when the first official Iron Man 3 trailer hit the Internet to which many comic book and action film fans probably thought, "Boy! There sure are a lot of nifty special effects in this trailer. I wonder what it would look like if it received a low budget remake?"

Stealth Cosplay's War Machine costume has functioning face mask, shoulder-mounted mini-gun

If you ever attend a convention like a Comic-Con, one thing that will definitely get you the ladies is cosplaying as different characters. After watching Stealth Cosplay's video of his War Machine costume, I can tell you if he didn't already have a girlfriend, women at Comic-Con would be throwing phone numbers at him as if he was the guest of honor at a ticket-tape parade.

The suit took approximately one month to complete from start to finish that features the ability to open & close its face mask, blinking lights on the inside of his arms to simulate War Machine's machine guns and his shoulder-mounted mini-gun that spins when in use.

'Overly Attached Computer' wants a Samsung SSD 840 or else

Laina's "Overly Attached Girlfriend" character made its debut this summer, and it seems like she's already started to sell out the character to companies who are willing to pay her to look all crazy while adding her own lyrics to karaoke tunes. One of the first "commercials" I've seen for the character just hit YouTube today promoting Samsung's SSD 840.

The video starring Laina's "Overly Attached Girlfriend" character has her speaking on behalf of your computer. It's been a long time since you've layer your Doritos-covered mitts on your computer and it wants you back. Bad. And it's willing to do anything to get you back, like threatening to release all of those quarantined viruses onto your system or deleting all of your pirated music downloads.

Netflix accounts for 33% of peak Internet traffic in North America, people like their videos

Netflix is a massive bandwidth hog, or at least a new report from Sandvine would lead you to believe that. The data that they collected shows that Netflix use contributed 33 percent of downstream traffic in North America during peak hours. From 9 p.m. to 12 a.m., Netflix dominated the competition in data usage.

 

TweakTown image news/2/6/26626_1_netflix_accounts_for_33_of_peak_internet_traffic_in_north_america_people_like_their_videos.gif

 

Amazon, by comparison, only accounted for 1.8 percent, and Hulu only managed to use 1.4 percent. During this time period, roughly 65 percent of non-cellular data was composed of audio- or video-streaming services. This means that Netflix accounts for over half of all streaming during the peak hours of usage.

 

Sandvine is predicting that Netflix will, by 2015, generate "two times the bandwidth of YouTube and 10 times that of competing services." Sandvine's numbers are created by collecting data from over 200 customers worldwide over a period of one month. Sandvine is in the business of selling Internet traffic-management systems.

The Warpzone are glad Master Chief came in Halo 4

Halo 4 was officially released yesterday and will most likely take up permanent residence in many Xbox 360s for the next few weeks and months. If you were able to pry yourself away from the siren call of Halo 4, you're probably going to want to jump right back in after watching this music video The WarpZone published yesterday in honor of Halo 4's release.

The Wanted's "Glad You Came" has been playing on the majority of Top 40 stations across the U.S., but The WarpZone gave it a new meaning in its version of "Glad You Came." In their version, they tell a story of some infantry who are being completely overrun by the Covenant. Then, when things look their worst, Master Chief shows up and does his usual butt-kicking.

Google House View takes Street View to a creepy level

Google has been mapping the world for years now, but we should not be surprised if one day they decide to offer a "House View" mode in its Google Maps service. That inevitable concept was brought to life in a satirical YouTube video.

Darth Vader takes a trip to Disneyland

It should no secret by now that Disney purchased Lucasfilm a few days ago, which have left many Star Wars fans clutching at their lightsabers in either worry or excitement. Either way, big changes are bound to happen with everyone's favorite sci-fi series in the coming years.

'S*** Android Users Say' highlights every annoying thing Android users say

In my circle of friends, I'm the only iPhone user, so the daily assaults I receive from them on how much Android is better than the iPhone is as expected as waking up in the morning. The "S*** People Say" videos have been popular ever since the iconic "S*** Girls Say" was released earlier this year, but finally, someone has made a "S*** Android Users Say" and it's extremely on point.

 

 

The video highlights many of what non-Android users hear, that group mainly being made up of iOS owners since Android users don't really care about Blackberry or Windows Phone users. Screen size, reception and how highly configurable Android is are just some of most discussed topics that non-Android users have heard on a regular basis.

Apple's iPad Mini event now available to watch online

If you're not an Apple fanboy or at least have a somewhat interest in Apple products, then today probably was not the day to be following the Internet as all everyone has been talking about all day have been sprinkled in Apple praise or disdain.

Regardless on what side of the fence you're on, it's always entertaining to see what Apple has up their sleeves and that's exactly what we saw today as a slew of new Apple products like the new Mac Mini, 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display and, of course, the 4th generation iPad and iPad Mini.
