PopCap Games Nets $1M with Plants vs. Zombies on iPhone

PopCap Games released Plants vs. Zombies on February 15th for the cheap price of $2.99 for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Today, they announced that they have reached the $1 Million mark.

Considering they sold 300,000 downloads in the first nine days and it takes 335,000 to reach $1 Million, they are probably way past that mark.

Talk about easy, take a great game for mac and pc and port it over to the iPhone and make an extra mil.

Local Sports Anchor Under Arrest for Raping Underage Prostitute

One-time sports anchor Marvell Scott is under arrest on rape charges. WCBS-TV reports Scott, formerly with WABC-TV/Channel 7, surrendered to police this morning.

Police say Scott raped a 14-year-old prostitute in his Midtown Manhattan apartment.

Scott was scheduled to face a judge Tuesday afternoon. His attorney, according to WCBS, says Scott is the victim of a shakedown by two prostitutes and a pimp.

Scott, who turns 37 on February 28, left WABC in May initially believed to be on an extended vacation. However, he never returned. Instead, Scott went on to pursue a medical practice. Dr. Marvell Scott specializes in sports medicine.

He told the Daily News in June that he was in the final stages of his education and a fellowship at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in Hamilton, N.J.

Jeezus, this story has everything, a sports anchor, a doctor, a underage prostitute, a shakedown. It must be true. [Examiner]

Royals Sued Over Weiner in the Eye Incident

A man is suing the Kansas City Royals after an incident where the mascot, Slugger, threw a hot dog at a man's eye, leaving him with a detached retina.

The incident took place during a game last year where Slugger was launching hot dogs to fans using a hot dog launcher. Eventually he put the gun down and started tossing the weiners by hand. Unfortunately one was thrown at John Coomer who was struck directly in the eye (good aim?).

Coomer's complaint says that the mascot wasn't trained properly and was recklessly throwing hot dogs into the stands and is suing for $25k for negligence and battery.

Since the incident, Coomer has developed cataracts.

Wonder if he ate the hot dog or took it to go...[TMZ]

Worst Geek Wedding Ever

A couple got married at the Apple store on Fifth Ave. on Valentine's day. How lame. What's with all these lame Apple stories today?

Make sure you note that the priest or religious person was dressed like Steve Jobs and reading off an iPhone. And they never show the bride's face.

iTouch Gloves for iPhone and iPod Touch

These leather gloves allow people to control the touchscreens on their iPhones and iPod Touches. Unfortunately they are quite expensive. They come in 5 designs (men and women), starting at $99.99.

Word from the Wall Street Journal is that Google will be implementing (probably in some beta form) a new social networking feature into GMail (along with other Google products).

Comparing Lost's First Episode to Season 6's First Episode

The filming of Lost's season six premiere looked very similar to the opening scenes in the first episode of season 1. Here's a side-by-side comparison of the two shootings. I think they did a very good job of making them look the same.

Wheaties Fuel

New cereal by Wheaties helps curb that hunger between breakfast and lunch (or lunch and dinner in my case). Athletes such as Kevin Garnett, Peyton Manning and Albert Pujols helped design the new cereal with better ingredients including five grams of fiber, whole grains, a daily amount of five B vitamins, for longer-lasting energy. Also, one bowl contains 200 calories. You can buy it now for $5. It's the better breakfast of champions. [Wheaties Fuel]

Tiger Woods Time Waster Game

Someone made a Tiger Woods game, called Tiger's Transgressions, where you have to hit golf balls to knock out women, presumably, Tiger's ho's, before they run and tell the media about their sexual relations with the infamous golfer. It's actually pretty tough, but hilarious. There are nine rounds with nine ho's and a hard mode as well. Check it out here.

Cookmate, an iPhone app, stores information on what you have in stock in your fridge and pantry. It will then suggest food ideas based on what you have. Sells for $1.99 in the app store.

The Who Dat Dog

This is pretty ridiculous. They would break away from the game to say "dat" to the dog that doesn't understand what the f is going on. It's cute at first, but turns retarded and annoying quickly.

UPDATE: It looks like single ply.

Lil Wayne, Eminem, Drake, Travis Barker - Drop the World/Forever

Performed at the Grammys. A good chunk of it was bleeped out, but still a great performance.

Sad that the greatest rap song of the year wasn't even nominated, but at least Eminem got 2 Grammys. He did have the top selling rap album of the year.

The international version is has low volume, but less editing.
