Woman evades kidnapper with the help of Pizza Hut app

TMNT_2_SECRET_OF_THE_OOZE_RAPH_CHILLING

Technology has taken us to the moon, given us smartphones, and, best of all, pizza apps. The latter technological advancement might be man’s best achievement, not because of its convenience, but because of its ability to literally save lives.

A Florida woman who was being held hostage by her abusive boyfriend allegedly used the Pizza Hut smartphone app to outsmart her captor and surreptitiously call for help.

According to WFLA, the woman had been arguing with her boyfriend when he threatened her life with a large knife. Her phone was then taken, but not before she was given permission to order a pizza. Hostages and kidnappers gotta eat. Thinking of a way to escape, the woman cleverly added a little message to her order, but it wasn’t a call for extra toppings or napkins.

“911hostage help!” and “Please help. Get 911 to me,” the message read. That’s when the local Pizza Hut, who said the woman was a regular, called police.

When officers responded, they found the woman and her children in the house unharmed, and eventually took her boyfriend into custody—all because of her quick thinking. No word on what happened to the pizza, but one would hope the woman was treated to a complimentary pie following the frightening ordeal.

It just goes to show that having a good pizza app on your phone couldn’t hurt.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
