Amazon Reviews Removed by Bribe? #1313 - Geek News Central

Amazon Reviews apparently can be manipulated by a simple bribe. Goes to show you that Amazon is likely not paying their employees enough if a payment from $80 to $2000 can get sales reports, negative reviews removed and a whole bevy of nefarious things. Tonight I cover that and other top stories and...

Where is Larry Page #1312 – GNC - Geek News Central

The big question some are asking is where is Larry Page. He seems to have really gone underground for a long time according to internal sources at Google.

Ok, folks, I am live as it can be from the great state of Texas. Heavily jet lagged and sugar-free Lime Red Bull takes me through the show production. Are you ready for commercials on Netflix? Nope, neither am I but that may be the future of Netflix. Let us hope not as that would seem to go against...

Losers at MoviePass #1306 - Geek News Central

Play Download media
In a desperate bid to stay in business MoviePass today dropped the hammer and further limited the viability of the service. It’s if they are asking users to abandon the service. The key for me was I could watch any movie I wanted on the schedule I wanted. Now they are dictating times which is...
