  1. It's not easy carrying a street view camera backpack around, but we imagine it's much better with a fluffy doggo following you the whole time. In these pictures of a Jukdo, a small idyllic island in South Korea, you can see the friendly dog is in nearly all of the pictures. Good doggo goes to what appears to be a public washroom. Image: Daum SEE ALSO: The South Korean president's rescue pets are so popular they have their own fan art The pictures, on Korean maps provider Daum, were captured in July 2010 on foot. If the pictures look empty, it's probably because it has few residents. A 2004 census noted that only a family of three was living there. Read more...

  3. Reverse psychology doesn't seem like the most obvious tool against racism, but here we are. Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has become the face of an anti-racism campaign organised by New Zealand's Human Rights Commission. It comes shortly after being awarded New Zealander of the Year for 2017. SEE ALSO: There’s an epidemic of LGBTQ hate violence. Here's how you can curb it. In a video, Waititi has a small favour to ask everyone, and that's to give what they can to a "very important cause," which is racism. "Racism needs your help to survive," he said. "You may not be in a position to give much to racism, but whatever you feel comfortable giving will make a huge difference. Read more...

  4. Apparently Konami will bear a serious grudge if you quit the company. The Japanese video game giant behind classics like Dance Dance Revolution and the Metal Gear franchise is in the news right now for apparently punishing employees within the industry for leaving the firm. Konami's pretty influential, so being on its sh*tlist is pretty bad if you're trying to develop a career in video games. SEE ALSO: Your favorite board games have some pretty wacky origin stories Ex-Konami staffers told the Nikkei Asian Review: "If you leave the company, you cannot rely on Konami's name to find a job." The report goes on to say that Konami even goes so far as to file complaints with other gaming companies, if they hire former staff. Read more...

  8. In 2016, Australia’s Ten Network posted losses of AUS$157 million. This April, the broadcaster showed signs of continuing distress when it posted a half-year loss of AUS$232 million. In a statement to the stock exchange, Ten said it was trying to secure new terms for a AUS$200 million debt financing guarantee. According to ABC, the company had lost more than 60% of its value in the preceding 12 months and almost 98% over the previous five years. More bad news arrived this week when Ten’s board decided to put the company into voluntary administration after failing to secure a guarantee for a AUS$250 million loan that could’ve kept the ship afloat into the new year. As moves get underway to secure the company’s future, fingers of blame are being raised. According to Village Roadshow co-chief executive Graham Burke, Internet pirates cost Ten “hundreds of millions of dollars” in advertising revenue due to their tendency to obtain movies and TV shows from the web rather than via legitimate means. Burke told The Australian (paywall) that movies supplied to Ten by 21st Century Fox (including The Revenant and The Peanuts Movie which were both leaked) had received lower broadcast ratings due to people viewing them online in advance. “Piracy is a much bigger channel and an illicit economy than the three main commercial networks combined,” Burke told the publication. “Movies from Fox arrive with several million people having seen them through piracy. If it wasn’t for piracy, the ratings would be stronger and the product would not be arriving clapped out.” But leaked or not, content doesn’t come cheap. As part of efforts to remain afloat, Ten Network recently tried to re-negotiate content supply deals with Fox and CBS. Together they reportedly cost the broadcaster more than AUS$900 million over the previous six years. Despite this massive price tag and numerous other problems engulfing the troubled company, Burke suggests it is pirates that are to blame for Ten’s demise. “A large part of Ten’s expenditure is on movies and they are being seen by millions of people ­illegitimately on websites supported by rogue ­advertising for drugs, prostitution and even legitimate advertising. The cumulative effect of all the ­pirated product out there has brought down Ten,” Burke said. While piracy has certainly been blamed for a lot of things over the years, it is extremely rare for a senior industry figure to link it so closely with the potential demise of a major broadcaster.

  11. Just how else do you commemorate the Batman, Adam West. Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Los Angeles to pay tribute to the late actor's life on Thursday night, with the main act being the Bat-Signal shining on City Hall. SEE ALSO: 'You will always be Batman': Celebrities post tributes to Adam West The Bat-Signal is used in the series by police to help summon Batman.
