  1. Negreanu music video cameo

    by , 29 April 2009 at 11:20 am
    I can honestly say I didn't know who Katy Perry was before this. But Negreanu has a cameo in her latest music video (did anyone know they still made music videos?). Can't say I'm much of a fan of the song, but I might be the wrong target demo. Let's see what everyone else thinks.

  2. Don't believe the New York Times...

    by , 27 April 2009 at 6:18 pm
    The New York Times is positively giddy about the possibilities of regulated online gambling in the U.S. But before you jump on the bandwagon, notice that the Times talked primarily to European sources. And those sources want online gambling to be regulated in the U.S., so of course they're going to pump up the possibilities. Also, as the story acknowledges, Steve Wynn is against online gambling even though it would help his company (yes, Wynn said that). He's against it because doesn't think it ...

  5. The "real" Bodog news

    by , 22 April 2009 at 2:07 pm
    For those of you that haven't heard, Bodog settled its patent infringement case and now owns the bodog.com domain again. But the really big news is what they're doing with the domain. Right now, the plan is to geotarget bodog.com, so the content will be customized depending on where the player is visiting from. That's a huge deal, and it will be interesting to see how it works out for Bodog, and what the implications might be down the road for the online gambling industry. I could easily envision ...
