BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


Caught a BBeliever for the new iSmack nano coming from Apple...

Will the kunckles be removable so you can use it as a normal iPod too and not wear it around your hand as well?

Another iPod BBeliever, but this time it's the article about the next generation iPod having no controls...

what is this possible, unless its all voice activated, but that would look weird like on the street, your yelling at an ipod haha.

Another BBeliever wants to mirror the website for us ...

Emne: crosswalk button hacks


I am an Urban Studies student at the University of Calgary and I am intrigued by your article on x-walk hacks. Do you happen to have an address or anything of the creators of I’d like to mirror their site on a Canada domain where I’m less likely to get touched (I hope).

I did a whois on the website which yielded nothing.

Thanks for your help.

You have to admire his intentions at least.

And finally, one BBelievers can't BBelieve the FBI would be that stupid...

Subject: about a article on BBspot?

Is that real? it can't be, I think the FBI would know what it says. I can read what that says with ease.

"w3 ar3 l33t h4x0rs. J00 FB1 guy5 w1ll n3v3r c4+ch u5. J00 ar3 n0+ k3w1 3n0ugh. 0ur h4x0r1ng w1ll d35troy j00. pH34r u5. "

It says "We are elite hackers. You FBI guys will never catch us. You are not kewl enough. our hacking will destroy you. fear us."

Unless the hackers were smart enough to make it mean something else when they did that so that is seen when something else is happening.

I love how he tries to create an explanation for the FBI.

Doom Trailer

A couple readers had thoughts on our recent Trailer Review of Doom...

I think I know what the "last 10% of human genome" bit is about. The film company is scared of mentioning hell in the current US ""moral"" climate, so they picked something they think is acceptable to portray as evil. Naturally, being film marketing pinheads, they picked something that doesn't make sense.

The whole idea seems dumb to me, though: starting a moral backlash against your film is a great way to get free publicity.

quite right, quite right.

it's almost as if their *goal* is to have an audience of 0. People who have played Doom would rather stay home and play it [yet again] than watch the movie. People who have *not* played Doom will be thinking "What the heck? Why do they have chainsaws on Mars? Must be an geek's insider joke . . . I'm not going."

I'd almost rather see the Yu-Gi-Oh movie

Let's not throw all logic out the window just because the Doom trailer was bad. Yu-Gi-Oh must not be seen under any circumstances.

That's all for this week!
