Just eat it: Facebook has built a giant data farm in Eastern Oregon to store the billions of photos uploaded to the social network.
One week after it began operations, the facility stored nine petabytes of data. That’s roughly 3 billion unflattering selfies and 1.75 billion unappetizing photos of $35 entrees at restaurants in Seattle’s Capitol Hill district, Portland, Ore., and Brooklyn.
All it needs is a catchphrase: Venerable action heroes Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone have finally made a movie together: “Escape Plan,” opening today.
If the film’s a hit, a sequel will surely follow. But Sly and Arnie aren’t getting any younger, which is why The Buzz would like to pitch them a project called “Get Off My Lawn,” in which the superstars tangle with disrespectful neighbor kids who take shortcuts across their property on the way to the skate park.
Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1812, the British warship HMS Frolic was captured by the USS Wasp.
The British crew put up a fight but was overcome by embarrassment at their ship’s silly name.
