This film documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them—saving endangered species one life at a time. Stunningly captured in IMAX 3D, Born to be Wild 3D is a heartwarming adventure transporting moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne Sheldrick, as they and their team rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild.

Wrath of the Titans

Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson star once again as gods at war in “Wrath of the Titans”, under the direction of Johnathan Liebesman. A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kaken, Perseus (Worthington) the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson) is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramrez), switch loyalties and make a deal, with kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen gob Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

DISH and Qualcomm on the Forefront of LTE-Advanced

June 15th, 2012

LTE is the future of mobile service, and 4G-LTE is now a standard among mobile carriers and is set to become the first global standard for mobile phones. Even though LTE may seem like brand new service to you (didn’t it just become a buzz word a few weeks ago?) the tech sector is already moving on to LTE-Advanced, the soon to be new brand new mobile standard. DISH has been on top of the game and has already signed a deal with telecommunications giant Qualcomm to create LTE-Advanced chipsets for their future devices.

DISH is trying to convince the federal government to allow them to use 40MHZ chunk of satellite spectrum to launch a terrestrial LTE-Advanced network in the US. It’s likely to be passed, as the only thing that had stopped LightSquared, the company that tried to do the same thing before, was that their service caused interference with GPS navigation signals. DISH of course wouldn’t have this problem as they’d be using their own bandwidth that has been specifically set aside for the network’s use, no need to share with anyone else.

If the federal government does okay DISH’s plan they will be the first to launch a nationwide LTE-Advanced network and their equipment will be the first equipped with chips ready to take advantage of the blazing speed (up to 100mbs download). This is why DISH is the best in technology, they’re always at the front of the pack when it comes to technological revolutions.
