Who would've thought that Cookie Monster is an Apple fanboy? The Sesame Street favorite debuted in a commercial promoting Siri's capabilities, but he seemed a bit disappointed with her inability to speed up time.
Speaking of Apple, co-founder Steve Wozniak has recently dispelled the myth that Apple started in a garage. "The 'garage' is true in that it represents our humble start, with no money, out of our homes. But no product was discussed or conceived of or designed or prototyped or tested or software written in the garage. That was all done in my Cupertino apartment and my office cubicle at HP's calculator division in Cupertino. We did no manufacturing in the garage," he said in a comment on Gizmodo. (Yep, this tech legend is a regular tech site lurker and commenter. Who knew!)

Here's another movie we’ll be lining up for: Now You See Me 2, which has lots of magic, a sexy Lizzy Caplan, a threatening Morgan Freeman, and Daniel Radcliffe playing a villainous muggle magician. Looking good!
Need a summer gig? An American pub chain called World of Beer will be hiring three interns to go around the world and drink beer beginning April. They're required to "capture the best beer stories and document them by blogging, capturing video, taking photos, Facebooking, tweeting, sharing Vines, Periscoping, and anything else you think would be awesome to help tell the tale." Oh, and you'll be paid $12,000 (around P555,000). Sounds like our kind of internship!
