Google celebrates the 129th Birthday of Hermann Rorschach

Google celebrates the 129th Birthday of Hermann Rorschach, the creator the inkblot test, with an interactive doodle on their homepage.

The black and white doodle on the Google homepage features the renowned Freudian psychoanalyst sitting in the background with a notepad and pen in hand while your hands hold a piece of paper with inkblots. Users are encouraged to share their interpretations of the inkblots on Google Plus, Facebook or Twitter.

According to Wikipedia, Hermann Rorschach was born on November 8, 1884 in Zurich, Switzerland. He is best known for developing a projective test known as the Rorschach inkblot test. The test is thought to reach the unconscious parts of the personality which projects onto the stimuli.

What Does The Inkblot Test Reveal 550x359 Google Celebrates Inkblot Test Creator Hermann Rorschach

What Does This Inkblot Reveal?

As a young boy, Rorschach enjoyed making inkblots so much that his fellow classmates called him Klecks, or “inkblot.” By the time high school graduation approached, Hermann had to decide between studying art or science. He chose science and enrolled in medical school at the University of Zurich.

Rorschach studied under the well-known psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler, who had taught Carl Jung. His studies of psychoanalysis reminded him of his childhood and the inkblots. He was intrigued by why people often saw entirely different things in the same inkblots. He experimented on schoolchildren and analyzed their responses.

In 1914, Rorschach returned to Switzerland where he served as an Assistant Director at a psychiatric hospital in Herisau.  In 1921, he wrote Psychodiagnostik which was to form the basis of the inkblot test. The book was an overnight success due to the miraculous behavior readings the inkblots provided.

Unfortunately, Hermann Rorschach died one year later of peritonitis on April 1, 1922 at the age of 27.

Twitter IPO Prices 70 Million Shares at 26 Per Share (LEON NEAL/AFP/Getty Images)

Update:  Shares of Twitter (TWTR) opened up at $45.10 and within the first hour of trading reached a high of $50.09 before leveling off around $46 by afternoon.  The stock closed at $44.90 which represented a 73% gain above the IPO price but below the opening price of $45.10.

Can Twitter justify a valuation of $31.7 billion dollars?  We will find out once the company reports fourth quarter earnings in January.  According to Minyanville, analysts are expecting $218 million in revenue which assumes 94% year-over-year growth.  They also expect a significant spike in EBITDA over the next few years, hitting $395 million in 2015.  However, bottom-line profitability will remain low with annual losses projected through 2014 until 2015 when the company is expected to post a profit of $0.18 per share.

Twitter IPO: 70 Million Shares At $26 Per Share

Twitter prices in their initial public offering of 70 million shares at $26 per share overnight as they get ready to open on the NYSE this morning under the ticker symbol TWTR.

Twitter is one of the hottest IPOs of 2013 and is sure to garner the attention of the floor and media throughout the day. The IPO is worth approximately $1.82 billion and marks the second largest offering by an Internet company.

The IPO price of $26 per share is beyond the initial ranges of $17 to $20 and $23 to $25 earlier this week. None the less, investors will be chomping at the bit for a piece of the action.  At $26 per share, Twitter will have a market cap of around $14 billion. That puts it above Groupon and Yelp, but below Linkedin and Facebook.

Twitter is selling 70 million shares which makes up13% of its total shares outstanding. Compare that to Facebook which sold 421 million shares or 20% of its shares outstanding.

If you missed Facebook then you might want to pick up some Twitter. That’s what some Wall Street traders are saying. There were a lot of disappointed investors who missed out on the Facebook IPO due to technical difficulties with the NASDAQ. The Facebook IPO turned out to be a complete flop with the stock closing below the IPO price of $38 per share.

We will be following all of the action from the opening bell, price action during the day and the closing.  Be sure to revisit AMOG.com for all of the latest on the Twitter IPO.

What do you think? Are you going to buy into the Twitter IPO? We would love to hear your thoughts.

It was just last month that Silk Road was shut down by the Department of Justice and its owner Ross Ulbricht, aka “Dread Pirate Roberts,” was taken into custody for narcotics conspiracy, computer hacking, money laundering and murder-for-hire.  Today, the Silk Road website is back up and running with a new Dread Pirate Roberts at the helm.

Ross Ulbricht The Original Silk Road Dread Pirate Roberts 550x309 New Silk Road: The Black Market Drug Website Is Back

Ross Ulbricht The Original Silk Road Dread Pirate Roberts

A new and improved Silk Road website re-emerged this morning promising better encryption for the Web’s largest black market for illegal drugs, activities and contraband.  The website looks a lot like the original and already had more than 500 drug listings, ranging from marijuana to ecstasy to cocaine.

The New Anonymous Black Market Silk Road Website Launches 550x300 New Silk Road: The Black Market Drug Website Is Back

The New Anonymous Black Market Silk Road Website Launches

Like the previous site, it uses the anonymity tool Tor and cryptocurrency Bitcoin to protect user identities.  The new website owner even uses the same Dread Pirate Roberts handle and wrote “You can never kill the idea of Silk Road” on twitter shortly before the official launch of the site. (Dread Pirate Roberts Twitter)

The new Silk Road URL is silkroad6ownowfk.onion.  If you enter in the URL you will be directed to a spoofed Department of Justice webpage which states “This Hidden Website Has Risen Again” instead of “This Website Has Been Hidden.”

Silk Road Message To Users This Hidden Site Has Risen Again

To gain access to the website you will need to download the anonymized Tor browser.  (Download The Tor Browser Here)  Once inside, you will see everything from illegal drugs for sale to counterfeit currency, passports and even hitmen for hire.

The site did experience some technical difficulties during the initial launch as it was originally scheduled to go live on November 5th at 4:20pm.  However, users of the site seem re-assured by the fact that it is being managed by known administrators from the original site and particularly a moderator known as Libertas.

What do you think?  Should there be sites like Silk Road on the Internet?  How long would you guess before the latest site is shut down?

Call of Duty Ghosts Outsells Grand Theft Auto V With $1 Billion In Sales

Call of Duty: Ghosts was anticipated to break records for the Activision Blizzard, Inc. franchise but many doubted whether it would be able to surpass the all time record held by Grand Theft Auto 5 which sold $800 million in the first 24 hours.  Activision is reporting sales of $1 billion for Call of Duty: Ghosts on the first day and contributes its success to a record number of pre-orders.  Should you buy it?

The latest iteration of Call of Duty features an entirely new dynamic where players aren’t just fighting for freedom or liberty, they’re fighting for survival.  10 years after a massive and devastating event occurred, the nation’s border and global power has been redrawn.  All that’s left is a mysterious group of Special Operation forces, known as Ghosts, to fight a newly emerged and technologically superior global power.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNxh7umVOZ0[/youtube]

What’s New!

Call of Duty: Ghosts allows players to select the head, body type, head-gear and equipment.  There is also a female soldier for the first time. With over 20,000 possible combinations, you can create the soldier customized to you.  And each soldier you create will also have his or her own load outs.

Initial Reviews

The reviews are coming in and so far the latest in the series has received lower scores than Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.  According to Metacritic, which compiles reviews from dozens of gamers, Call of Duty: Ghost has received a 74 on Xbox 360 and a 75 on Playstation 3?  That’s compared to an average score of 83 for last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.   Metacritic scores can fluctuate in the weeks following a release, as more reviews are tallied. Find out what critics and gamers are saying about the latest release on Metacritic.

“Although they’re simple modifiers, the new gametypes are immensely fun and breathe new life into multiplayer.” IGN

“Infinity Ward brings a different kind of game with Call of Duty: Ghosts than their usual CoD titles. They have an intriguing, story driven campaign that is accompanied by an incredibly fun (and deep) multiplayer experience.”  Digital Chumps

“I dont really get the dumb trolling part from BF4 nerdys. I must say i played both and i just giving 10 not only because i find this one way entertaining than bf4 but because i loved the campaing story.” nellomora12

“Despite an overriding feeling of familiarity, Ghosts is a

nother excellent entry in the Call of Duty series.” Digital Spy

“The developer does a great job with the some of the set pieces, but most of the campaign is still basic, refined cover shooting. A decent last hurrah on the PlayStation 3, but you may want to invest in the PlayStation 4, PC, or Xbox One versions if you’re looking for the full effect.”  USgamer

Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One and Playstation 4

While setting records on the first day, Ghosts may continue to set records due to it being in the unique position of having two launches, with the second happening when the PS4 and Xbox One arrive later this month.

It also seems likely Ghosts is going to set some records that won’t be beaten for quite a while due to it being in the unique position of having two launch windows, with the second happening when the PS4 and Xbox One arrive.

Guy Fawkes’ Day Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

Remember, remember the Fifth of November…  It was this day in 1605 that Guy Fawkes and English Roman Catholics were caught conspiring to blow up the English Parliament and assassinate King James I.

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Gunpowder Plot Conspirators 550x282 Guy Fawkes’ Day: Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

Gunpowder Plot Conspirators

Guy Fawkes and fellow conspirators stockpiled large sums of gunpowder underneath the English Parliament.  They intended on unleashing a powerful explosion which would take down the Parliament building while King James I, Protestant, and even most Catholic, aristocracy and nobility were inside.

The aim of the plot was to displace Protestant rule and discrimination against English Roman Catholics.  The conspiracy was uncovered just moments before the fuse was lit and Guy Fawkes was left holding the explosives.  Robert Cecil who was chief spymaster to James I knew about the plot all along.  He even helped the plot along with the purpose of exposing the traitors.

All of the Gunpowder conspirators including Guy Fawkes were put to death by hanging, drawing, or quartering.  King James’ government ministers attempted to implicate the Catholic Church.  They also went after the two Jesuit priests who had heard the conspirators’ last Confessions.  One of the priests, Father Garnett, refused to break the seal of confessional and paid with his life.

King James I increased the persecution of Catholics and Guy Fawkes’ Day became a legal holiday.  It was celebrated with fireworks, bonfires and the burning of effigies of Guy Fawkes and often the pope.  In 1859, the holiday was repealed.  Today, November 5 is celebrated by fireworks and bonfires in the United Kingdom.

The Fifth of November is also an important date for Anonymous.  The hacktivist group conducts operations and protests every year on this date.

Anonymous also pays tribute by wearing Guy Fawkes masks in their videos and protests.  Writer Alan Moore and illustrator David Lloyd created the look for the Guy Fawkes mask in the comic V for Vendetta in 1982.  The comic was further popularized by the movie sharing the same title in 2006.  Since then, the mask has become a symbol of anonymity, and has been wholly embraced by Anonymous.

Justin Bieber and a friend reportedly spent three hours in a popular Rio de Janeiro brothel called Centaurus.  The pictures obtained from Page Six show the pop-star being escorted out of the brothel covered in a bed sheet.  He’s seen getting into the back seat of his car while two women from Centaurus left in another car headed towards his hotel.

It was confirmed by photographers and his security at the scene that it was in fact Bieber.  He’s easily identified in the pictures by the wrap around tattoo on his wrist and his signature sneakers.

In other Bieber news, Katy Perry beats Justin Bieber as the #1 followed celebrity on twitter. This may be due to the backlash from the events over the weekend.  Many loyal Bieber fans were disappointed by the news.  Bieber tweeted “Please stop believing rumors, they are just that. bs rumors, getting tired of it, no truth to them. moving on now. seriously moving on.”

A recently discovered underground passageway for transporting drugs between San Diego and Tijuana is so sophisticated that authorities call it the “super tunnel.”  It’s 4 feet tall, 3 feet wide and spans nearly six football fields. The tunnel features an advanced ventilation system, lighting and a rail system capable of transporting large amounts of illegal drugs.

This highly sophisticated tunnel was discovered by the San Diego Tunnel Task Force, which is comprised of ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Three people were taken into custody along with the seizure of 8 tons of marijuana and 325 pounds of cocaine according to a statement by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  The estimated street value of the bust was $12 million.

San Diego Tijuana Drug Bust 20131 550x344 San Diego Tijuana Drug Super Tunnel

San Diego – Tijuana Drug Bust 2013 Yields 8 Tons of Marijuana and 325 Pounds of Cocaine

The tunnel was built by the Sinaloa Cartel, a drug-trafficking, money laundering and organized crime syndicate which controls the “Golden Triangle” of Sinaloa, Durango, and Chihuahua.  The Sinaloa Cartel was founded in 1960s and is based in the city of Culiacán, Sinaloa where it derives its name.  The United States Intelligence Community considers the Sinaloa Cartel “the most powerful drug trafficking organization in the world.”

The leader of the Sinaloa Cartel is none other than Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman who has made a name for himself by climbing his way to the top of the drug smuggling business.  It is estimated by Forbes magazine that “El Chapo” is worth north of $1 billion.

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy told reporters “If you continue to build and attempt to use these tunnels, we are determined to make this a big waste of your dirty money. Not only will we take your drugs and shut down your tunnels before you even get an opportunity to use them, but we’re now in a position where we’re going after your management.”

This isn’t the first time that drug cartels have tried to build complex tunnels to transport drugs across the border.  “It was just two years ago, November 2011, that we discovered and shut down two elaborate super tunnels like the one here today,” Duffy said. “And at the time we did so, we stood before you and we warned the cartels directly. If you build them, we’re going find them, and if we find them, we’re going to destroy them. Today, we again make good on that promise.”

Megashare Website Allows You To Watch Free Movies Online 550x309 The Best Websites to Watch Free Movies Online

Megashare Website Allows You To Watch Free Movies Online

You can’t stop it.  It’s a growing epidemic that threatens to turn the movie industry on its ear just like the music industry.  We’re talking about streaming free movies online and it’s websites like YouTube.com, Megashare.info, Veetle.com and Free-Movie-Home.com that are making it happen.  Here’s how copyrighted materials are making their way into homes around the world and what is being done to stop it.

Free Movies Uploaded on YouTube.com

Type “full movies” into YouTube and see what comes up.  You might be amazed by the selection of free movies that are uploaded illegally.  The results will show pages upon pages of free movies with full length featured films with some as long as 2-3 hours.  Type in the name of a movie such as “waterboy full movie” and YouTube will return several movie options.  The movies range from poor quality to 1080 HD.  This can also be done with television shows and more.

YouTube has endured many copyright based lawsuits including a battle over the past couple of years with Viacom International, Inc.  Viacom sued YouTube for “brazen” and “massive” copyright infringement by allowing users to upload and view hundreds of thousands of videos owned by Viacom.  The lawsuit has gone back and forth in court with several judges and the most recent verdict in April 2013 granted summary judgment in favor of YouTube.

Free Movies and Television Shows on Magashare.info

Megashare.info is one of those websites which functions so well it’s hard to imagine it’s not legit.  The site contains thousands of free movies and television shows which can be streamed in an instant.  We’re talking about everything from television show to new movies.   The quality and reliability are of the movies and television shows reported as being better than YouTube and other websites.

Megashare.info is a branch of the infamous Megaupload.com which was shut down by the United States Department of Justice in January 2012.  The company’s founder, Kim Dotcom, and his associates were indicted  for copyright infringement and more than $42 million in assets were frozen by the Customs and Excise Department of Hong Kong.  The US judge handing the case has doubts whether or not the case will ever come to court.  Megaupload.com was released with new encryption under the name mega.co.nz.

 Streaming Free Movies on Veetle.com

The next website which offers free movies online does things a bit differently.  We are talking about Veetle.com.  Veetle is a streaming video site which allows users to stream directly from their computers and mobile devices.  Veetle has also become huge in terms of free streaming movies.  Type in “full movies” or “free movies” into Veetle and see hundreds of channels with different movie genres.  What’s interesting is that the movies are streamed live and that you may pick-up a movie midway through.  There are sometimes schedules on which movies will be streaming next.  We know of no known copyright infringement cases pending against Veetle.com.

Free Movie Websites Like Free-Movie-Home.com

Even smaller players are getting a piece of the action.  Websites like Free-Movie-Home.com are popping up all over the internet and offering films which are still in the theater.  There are free movies on the site which have only been out for a week or less in some instances.  These websites are a dime a dozen and once you shut down one you have ten more that popup in its place.  Not to mention, most of these sites mirror each other meaning that they have the same movie files.  There are tons of tricky advertisements and pop-ups to navigate before getting to the movie you want to see.  We know of no pending legal troubles for Free-Movie-Home.com.

What do you think?  Is it right to post movies, television shows and other copyrighted materials on these and other sites?  Is there anything that can be done to stop it?

Man Buys $27 Worth of Bitcoins, Forgets and Cashes In $886k

Kristoffer Koch was writing a thesis in 2009 when he came across a new peer-to-peer digital currency called Bitcoin.  He invested 150 kroner ($27 dollars) to purchase 5,000 Bitcoins and then forgot about his investment.  That was until 2013 when media and governments around the world started paying closer attention to Bitcoin and its roller coaster price fluctuations.

According to the guardian, Kristoffer exchanged one fifth of his Bitcoin stash to purchase an apartment in Toyen, one wealthier areas in the Norwegian capital.  With 4,000 Bitcoins remaining his investment is now worth approximately $708,800.  If he owned all 5,000 Bitcoins then his investment would be worth $886,000.  This was calculated when the story broke and the price was at $177.20.

As of this recent update, Bitcoin closed at 203.40 which means that his original investment would now be worth $1,017,000 USD and the remaining 4,000 Bitcoins worth $813,600 USD.

What is Bitcoin?   Bitcoin is the first decentralized digital currency.  Bitcoins are digital coins you can send through the internet in exchange for goods, services and even other currencies.  The peer-to-peer exchange of Bitcoins is recorded on a public log which authenticates and records the transactions.  This is known as the Blockchain and is stored on a private computer network.  By the way, the network has more computing power than the top 500 supercomputers combined.

How many Bitcoins are there in circulation?  According to Blockchain, there are currently 11,899,550 Bitcoins in circulation.  Once 21 million Bitcoins are distributed, issuance of the digital currency will cease.  Bitcoins are released by operators of the private computer network according to predetermined calculations.  The operators of these computers are known as miners and they are rewarded with Bitcoins and small transaction fees.

Where can I purchase Bitcoins?  Bitcoins can be purchased through several exchanges, brokers and local people although it depends which country you are located.  Use extreme caution in transferring money and make sure to do your homework before transferring money.  HowtoBuyBitcoins allows you to search websites, exchanges and brokers in your respective country.

A few of the largest Bitcoin exchanges in the US include Coinbase, Mt.Gox and CoinMkt.

Let us know what you think?  Is it worth it to take a chance on Bitcoin?

8 Signs That A Girl Likes You

#1 She Maintains Eye Contact
You spot a girl across the room attempting to make eye contact.  She looks at you when you begin to look at her.  This is a clear signal to go over and talk to her.

Also, make sure to pay attention to the girl’s eyes while in conversation.  If she likes you then she will maintain eye contact for as long as possible.  When she finally withdraws eye contact she will do it slowly and gently.

#2 She Flips Her Hair
Another clue that a girl likes you is if she is flipping her hair.  She will subconsciously flip her hair while looking at you.  Flipping or twirling her hair will often be accompanied with eye contact.

#3 Her Body Language
Body language may reveal whether or not a girl likes you.  If she is facing you directly and her shoulders are facing you then this should be taken as another sign that she likes you.  If she turns her shoulders away, that’s a clue that you might have said or done something to turn her off.

Another important body language clue is the way that she crosses her legs.  Are they crossed towards you or away?  Crossed towards you indicates that she likes you.  Crossed away from you may indicate that she may be ready to exit.

#4 Laughing and Smiling
A girl that laughs and smiles is a sign that you’re doing something right.

#5 She Leans In Towards You
Another signal that she likes you has to do with posture. A girl that shows interest will be leaning in towards you in an attempt to get closer.  This is true whether sitting or standing.  This allows her to unknowingly touch you while she is talking.

#6 She Is Interested In What You Have To Say
Women are naturally better listeners.  A girl that’s interested in you will be listening closely to what you have to say.  She will be genuinely interested and ask questions.  This is especially true for a girl that you just met.

#7 She Bites Her Lip
A girl that bites her lip, wets her lips with her tongue or put her nails in her teeth during conversation most likely is interested in you and may be turned on.

#8 She Dresses To Impress
You can tell a lot by the way that a girl dresses.  It’s a good sign that she likes you if she puts a lot of effort into looking good.  If she shows up in sweat pants, you may have a problem!
