Schmooze with some of Hollywood’s biggest names at this year’s TIFF!

Longo’s is celebrating the first anniversary of their Toronto, Maple Leaf Square store (MLSFest) and they’re using social media sites to spread all kinds of excitement and fun with a contest!  They are giving their customers the exclusive opportunity to rub elbows with Film Festival elite!

MLSFest kicked off Friday offering customers of the Maple Leaf Square store the opportunity to WIN two tickets to a Toronto film festival (industry-only) premiere screening and after-party on the evening of September 9th, 2011!

I KNOW, right?

Check out the contest details on this page and then hurry down to their MLS store and either checkin on Foursquare, grab the photo of the day and Tweet the image or upload it to Facebook to enter.  OR… do all three!

Break out the little black dress and tuxedo.  It’s party time—Hollywood style!

MLSFest will continue throughout the month of September and on into October with additional promotions, special offers and giveaways—including the opportunity to WIN tickets to more Film Festival events!

Get down to the Maple Leaf Square store and become part of the celebration!

Some porn with your Twitter? Nah… not today, thanks. I’m full.

It looks like Microsoft has just unlocked the idiot badge with Bing.  They’ve allowed the “mouse-over” technology to bring porn and virus sabotage to a hard drive near you.   You no longer have to worry about clicking on the wrong link—just move your mouse around the screen and the wrong link will find you.  No more struggles with your conscience about whether you should click that smutty link—just for a peak.  New windows will pop open automatically and the pleasures of all the nefarious offerings of the internet will be presented to you—in full, riveting colour. 

I was just sitting here wondering how I could get a new state-of-the-art search engine that turned off content filtering and left me as vulnerable as a baby bird in a cornucopia of pornography.  I mean, who wants that in their history, right?  Then, I thought, how could I exploit this technology—if I were a hacker—and cause some extreme spamming mayhem on Twitter this morning?  Awesome.  Thanks Microsoft.
