Youtube plays catch-up.

YouTube users can now have a cinematic experience after the video-sharing website went widescreen overnight.
The Google-owned provider, which allows users to upload, view and share video clips for free, have expanded the size of the video player so it now has a 16:9 widescreen format.

All widescreen videos will now play in the full frame, but 4:3 videos will show a black border on both sides. The width of the webpage has been increased to 960 pixels to accommodate the change.
All new videos will automatically be played in a widescreen player
The change follows just weeks after Google announced it had teamed by with MGM to bring full-length films to U.S users of the video site.

In the official blog, the ‘YouTube’ team said they were responding to feedback over the size of the player.

‘We’re expanding the width of the page to 960 pixels to better reflect the quality of the videos you create and the screens that you use to watch them.

‘This new, wider player is in a widescreen aspect ratio which we hope will provide you with a cleaner, more powerful viewing experience. And don’t worry, your 4:3 aspect ratio videos will play just fine in this new player.’
But many users are unhappy with the change and want an ‘opt out’ option for those who upload standard size videos.
‘The black bars look terrible and most videos for YouTube are filmed in 4:3 as the whole point is not for cinematic quality!’ one user commented.

Bang bang, bang bang…

Careful, you might shoot an ear out…

A gun disguised as a mobile phone has been discovered by police in Italy.
The .22 calibre weapon was found during an early morning raid on a property near Naples.
Officers also seized bullet proof vests, drugs, ammunition and thousands of pounds in cash.
It was all part of an operation against the Camorra, the Naples-based mafia.
Fully loaded, the gun’s capable of firing four shots in quick succession through the antenna using buttons on the keypad as the trigger. One man was arrested by detectives but others are thought to have escaped.

Dumbosity

I’ve seen a lot of things in my day…but this is a first.

A guy puts his hand into a laser engraver and tattoos himself. First off, who would WANT to do this? Secondly…he had to have spent some time trying to bypass the safety code in the machine…or at least I think he would have needed to. And third..WHY? P.S. this was not an AAC employee :)

Greetings from Iraq.

Our buddy Chris sent us another photo of him in Iraq sporting his AAC patch. He said they went over to EOD to see some friends, and they had one of these:

The rifle is an EBR Mk14 Mod0, with a full SAGE stock. Pretty sweet!
We really love photos like these… so keep ‘em coming!!!

Babe o’ the day

We don’t know her name, we don’t know who she is, she’s just a girl in the internet abyss…but damn is she fine. She’s probably got a real job doing real work, somewhere in the real world. But for now, we’ll just pretend she shoots silenced weapons all day long, la la la. Who knows maybe we’ll get to see her at the range the next time we go. Maybe she’s there waiting for us right now…gotta go!
*edit: Just got some new info on this babe o’ the day photo, Mark Mason, took this photo at an Oregon ARFcom shoot on 9/16/07. He doesn’t know her name bur she was a guest of one of the former members of the ARFcom Home Town Forum. You can see the rest of the Gallery at
M-Mason.smugmug.com (Thanks Mark!)
