Lawyer Files $1 Billion Lawsuit Against Facebook, Zuckerberg Over Palestinian Intifada Page

Earlier this week, Facebook pulled a controversial page calling for a Third Palestinian Intifada after facing intense pressure and criticism from Israeli politicians and organizations like the Anti-Defamation League. When it eventually decided to remove the page, the social network explained the decision by pointing out that comments on the page had "deteriorated to direct calls for violence,"...

Six Facebook Investors, Co-Founders Make Forbes' List of Billionaires

A billionaire isn't cool. You know what's cool? Six billionaires. That's what Facebook has produced, according to Forbes' annual list, published yesterday. CEO Mark Zuckerberg came in at number 52 on the list, with an estimated worth of $13.5 billion, followed by five other Facebook founders and investors. At 26, co-founder Dustin Moskovitz is the youngest billionaire on this year's list,...

On Making 'The Social Network': "We Got Shunned by Harvard"

For our viewing pleasure, IMDB has posted all 93 minutes of a documentary on the making of David Fincher's 'The Social Network.' Titled 'How Did They Ever Make a Movie of Facebook?,' the film offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at how Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin sculpted their Oscar-nominated movie, along with interviews from Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and other cast members....

The Eyes of 'The Social Network'

Jesse Eisenberg joked during his SNL monologue that he plays Mark Zuckerberg by speaking "in short clipped sentences" and keeping his head very still, but Professor (and must-read film blogger) David Bordwell digs deeper by exploring the eyes, eyebrows and facial behavior in Fincher's 'The Social Network.' Crucial to this moment is that nothing but Mark's eyes and lids move; he doesn't even turn...

Mark Zuckerberg Confronts the 'Zuckerbergs' on Saturday Night Live

Last night, 'Social Network' star Jesse Eisenberg kicked off the Saturday Night Live monologue (video after the break). A sweatshirted Andy Samberg joined the Academy Award nominee onstage to compare Zuckerberg acting techniques -- "I speak in short clipped sentences, and keep my head very still" -- while the show cut to Lorne Michaels and Mark Zuckerberg himself offstage. Sure enough, the real...

'The Social Network' Sweeps Golden Globes, Road To Oscar Ahead

We said, ages ago, 'The Social Network' might actually be a great movie. It seems that the Hollywood Foreign Press are apt to agree. (For the record: we are available for any of your critical/predictive needs, Hollywood. Just throwing that out there.) Last night, 'The Social Network' took home the Golden Globe for Best Picture -- Drama, which is an impressive feat, especially since the Globes are...

Winklevii Want More Money From Zuckerberg, Because They Really Need It

Poor Winklevoss twins. First, Mark Zuckerberg "stole" their idea for Facebook, and turned it into a billion-dollar social networking empire. Then, in 2008, Zuck had the gall to compromise on a $65 million settlement -- which, in these troubled economic times, isn't nearly enough to put bread on Tyler and Cameron's dinner table. That's why the square-jawed twins have relaunched their legal...

'Social Network' XP Bloopers, Windows Phone 7 Handsets Compared

Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web. If you weren't paying attention during 'The Social Network,' you may have missed that it features what must have been time-traveling PCs, since they were running Windows XP Service Pack 3 four years before it was released by Microsoft. [From: David Pogue, via: Geekosystem] Still...

Mark Zuckerberg Downplays 'The Social Network', Says 'It's Fun'

We've all been reading (for what feels like a decade) about 'The Social Network' and Facebook's alleged damage control toward the alleged over-hyped script (i.e., the coke-and-bare-breasts scene which is now sans bare breasts). So what does Zuckerberg think of the movie? Does he wish Aaron Sorkin, David Fincher and Jesse Eisenberg would all fall face-first into a '2012'-esque fissure erupting...

Mark Zuckerberg Opens Up (A Little) to The New Yorker

Mark Zuckerberg is one of the most polarizing and intriguing figures in the technology industry. The world's youngest billionaire -- and subject of the upcoming David Fincher flick 'Social Network' -- opened up to The New Yorker in its latest issue, and alleviated some of the public's curiosity. Check out the source link to find out why Facebook is blue (hint: color blindness), amongst other...

'Social Network' Gets Its First Review: For Zuck, Like It or Not, the Film Is Here to Stay

Although David Fincher's 'The Social Network' won't be out until its October premiere at the New York Film Festival, Film Linc (the fest's official pub) has released its first review of the biopic. Reviewer Scott Foundas describes it as a slick narrative with "rapid-fire yet plausible dialogue that sounds like what hyper computer geeks might actually say (or at least wish they did): Quentin...

Movie Rights Acquired for Google Film, Death of Wave Will Be a Tearjerker

Not to be outdone by Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founders of Google are reportedly getting the Hollywood treatment as well, thanks to a freshly inked movie deal. According to Deadline, Groundswell Productions and producer John Morris have just acquired the movie rights to Ken Auletta's book, 'Googled: The End of the World As We Know it.' In the book, Auletta traces the rise of the Google brand,...

Yaniv Berg's Periscope DSLR, 'The Twitter Movie'

Yaniv Berg's periscope inspired DSLR makes for a refreshing take on the standard camera body. [From: Tuvie] Memes spawning endless remixes are a fact of life these...

Trent Reznor to Score 'The Social Network,' the Facebook Film That'll Be Dark as Heck

The beginning of David Fincher's masterpiece 'Se7en' is bleak and haunting, one of the most memorable moments in the film. It not only lays the thematic groundwork for the rest of the movie, but, at the time of its release, changed the way credit sequences could be created. The grinding, gritty music trudging through the background is a lesser-known edit of Nine Inch Nails' mega-hit "Closer"...
