Stan Lee’s Soldier Zero

So I got the chance to check out the highly anticipated Soldier Zero, which is the 1st of 3 new super heroes that Stan Lee will be introducing over the upcoming months. Merry Christmas indeed! The writer Paul Cornell does an excellent job of pacing the story while artist Javier Pina has a very clean, but engaging style that flows well & hold’s interest. I particularly liked the opening sequences…both Paul & Javier showed out, as they overlapped the action! All-n-all, great start. There is also a lil’ bonus preview in the back, for The Traveler and IT…IS…DOPE!!! Can’t wait till November.

RIM Co-CEO Jim Balsillie responds to Steve Jobs!!! (This is getting good)



Here’s the official word from Jim Balsillie:

“For those of us who live outside of Apple’s distortion field, we know that 7″ tablets will actually be a big portion of the market and we know that Adobe Flash support actually matters to customers who want a real web experience. We also know that while Apple’s attempt to control the ecosystem and maintain a closed platform may be good for Apple, developers want more options and customers want to fully access the overwhelming majority of web sites that use Flash. We think many customers are getting tired of being told what to think by Apple. And by the way, RIM has achieved record shipments for five consecutive quarters and recently shared guidance of 13.8 – 14.4 million BlackBerry smartphones for the current quarter. Apple’s preference to compare its September-ending quarter with RIM’s August-ending quarter doesn’t tell the whole story because it doesn’t take into account that industry demand in September is typically stronger than summer months, nor does it explain why Apple only shipped 8.4 million devices in its prior quarter and whether Apple’s Q4 results were padded by unfulfilled Q3 customer demand and channel orders. As usual, whether the subject is antennas, Flash or shipments, there is more to the story and sooner or later, even people inside the distortion field will begin to resent being told half a story.”
