Photo: Highest resolution image of the moon ever

OK, you've seen lots of images of the big pizza pie in the sky. But this one is extraordinary. It's the one of the highest resolution images of the moon ever made.

Dell marketing stunts ends with SWAT team

There is dumb and there is dumber. Two Dell employees must truly believe the saying"There's no such thing as bad publicity". They put together a hostage-themed marketing stunt to market the Dell Streak tablet and it went very, very wrong.

A Dell sales manager dressed in a biker costume complete with black mask while carrying two metallic objects. He then told people at Dell's Round Rock headquarters to "go to the lobby."

The Round Rock SWAT team responded to multiple 911 calls of a suspect inside of one of the Dell campus buildings. When officers stormed the place, they say one man refused to comply with officers. 11 minutes into the situation police finally determined the masked man and another man were part of an in house marketing plan but had not told anyone about it.

Now that's marketing! Sounds more like an episode of The Office.

In 2005 a kid named Chris Putnam wrote a computer virus and introduced it to the Facebook website. It quickly spread across Facebook. What it did is turn Facebook user's profiles into MySpace profiles. It also deleted some contact information. Facebook was able to determine the source fairly quickly: a kid named Chris Putnam. Have him arrested? Nah.... in the great tech tradition of knowing genius when they see it, Facebook COO, Dustin Moscovitz hired him. Smart move.

Video: Catfight brawl at Denny's over syrup

I like my pancakes and like to use lots of syrup, but this is just plain ridiculous. Have a look at this mass brawl at a Kenny's in Chicopee, Massachusetts, when one group of girls asks the other if they could have some syrup. I guess they take their maple syrup real serious in Chicopee.
