UPDATE: Transformers production assistant defends Megan Fox in a new letter.

might not think highly of Michael Bay, but there are several who don’t exactly care for her either.

Earlier this month, the Transformers actress stirred up controversy when comments she made about Bay spread across the internet. In an interview with Wonderland magazine, Fox compared the director to Napoleon and said the “awkward” hit maker was “a nightmare to work for.”

Now other (anonymous) crew members are speaking out about the “unbearable” hours spent watching “Ms. Sourpants” trying to act on set. You can read a scathing letter (which was once posted on Michael’s own website) in full after the jump. A personal note from Bay will also follow.

iPod nano 5G: Shoots video, FM tuner with Live Pause, Pedometer (with videos!)

iPod nano shoots video

The got a very welcome upgrade today, with Apple integrating a camera into the device, making it the first (and only - sorry iPod touch) iPod with a built-in camera. On the lower left on back of the iPod nano sits the camera, along with speaker and microphone. The iPod nano only records video, so it doesn’t take still images, and those videos are recorded at 640x480 in H.264 up to 30fps with AAC audio. There are also 15 video effects you can apply, like Black and White, Film Grain, Thermal, X-Ray, and more.

Also making the iPod nano unique is the addition of an FM tuner, again, a first for the iPod line. Apple has even included a feature they call Live Pause, which lets you pause radio, and continue listening later. It holds a buffer of up to 15 minutes. You’ll also find a pedometer in the new nano, which works together with the built-in Nike+ integration, and a new, larger 2.2-inch screen - up from 2-inch on the previous model. We’ve got videos after the break that show off the iPod nano video camera, Genius Mix, and FM radio features.

The fifth generation iPod nano is available now at $149 for the 8GB model, and $179 for the 16GB version, and they come in nine new colors.

Meet Stan Lee at Pittsburgh Comicon

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Conventions,

Meet Stan Lee!Comic book god Stan Lee is joining forces with Hero Initiative, agreeing to meet and greet six winners at the Pittsburgh Comicon.

In order to nab one of the coveted six slots, you’ve got to sharpen your eBay skills and bid on them at the Hero Initiative‘s account. Currently at $157 a pop, the 2 days that you have left will most likely see an exponential increase in price; however, what does money matter when you get to meet Stan Lee?

If you get past that hurdle, the event will take place on Saturday, September 12; once there, you will be escorted to the VIP room by personnel and receive pictures with Stan and two autographs on items of your choice, on top of gracing his presence.

All proceeds of the auction benefit Hero Initiative, a non-profit dedicated to aiding comic book creators in financial and medical support. In other words, you’ll be doing charity while meeting The Man!
