Yet another half-time failure

Although Greenbay won the game against the Steelers by a score of 31-25, the real story is the ridiculously funny/bad/embarrassing musical acts before the game and during half time (only because I can't bring myself to really care about football).

Obviously when you mess up your own national anthem when singing it at a sporting event, people are going to laugh, but when you mess it up at one of the largest sporting events on the planet, there's going to be a lot of negative attention coming your way.  Here is Christina Aguilera's performance before the game:

In my opinion this only happens because artists try to add their own artistis flares and flourishes to a song that doesn't need to be added on to or improved.  Although I'm not an American, I know I hate it when singers do that to our national anthem (Canada).  There's a reason it's called a "National" anthem, it doesn't need to be remixed or redone.

I'm also not a big Black Eyed Peas fan (I personally find's name alone infuriating) I almost peed my pants when I saw Slash and Fergie perform a duet to the tune of 'Sweet Child of Mine".  How Slash, BEP and Usher managed to get on the same stage, I have no idea, but it happened, and millions were disappointed I'm sure.

Something tells me we'll be hearing Axl's opinion on the performance in the near future.

Steve Jobs Not Dead?

Apparently the Bloomberg Financial Newswire published Apple CEO Steve Job's obituary prematurely in an editing error.  How crazy would that be to wake up and read about your own death in the paper?  That's some real Back to The Future shit there. 

I imagine this isn't great for Apple's stocks either (although really, if they do go down, it won't be for long).

You can read the obituary here:

I wonder if we'll be seeing an itombstone complete with touchscreen and 4G networking in the near future?
