Sydney’s Pavilion

The Darling Harbour located in Sydney, Australia now has the world’s largest floating venue known to man. The Pavilion which is built right over the harbour can host a total of 1440 Guests standing up for club like activities, it can also hosts weddings and various other events for those who wish to spend the big bucks associated with renting out this venue. Regardless it is incredible to know that your venue is located right over the Harbour, everyone would be envious of you which is why the “Pavilion” has already been booked solid for the next eight months. One of the first events which are being held at the Pavilion is the “Australian Beauty Awards”.

The Darling Harbour

“We’ve had a great response from our clients and we’re tracking well with strong bookings to date. In particular, many of our corporate clients have secured the venue for multiple year event bookings.

“We want people to be wowed by the magnitude of this venue and understand that it’s a spectacular blank canvas which can be used for virtually any type of event,” said Mr Drivas.

The Dockside Pavilion is owned by the Dockside Harbour Group.

Apple To Launch 12.9 Inch iPad

There have been various rumors regarding what Apple plans to do this year with their mobile phones and mobile tablets. Rumors have indicated that Apple is planning to release a larger iPhone in order to compete with the likes of Android and now rumors from a reliable source has indicated that Apple will be releasing a 12.9 Inch tablet in order to compete with the larger tablets on the market. Apple has been recently losing pull in the mobile market as people believe that a larger device is better than a smaller device, the debate is pretty much 50/50.

apple

Analysts believe that this move would prove to be a bad decision for Apple as the iPad Mini has sold more than the iPad Air, clearly their users prefer a smaller device as they are lighter and easier to use. On top of that Apple increases their devices by $100 with each increase in screen size. It is very doubtful that consumers would be willing to purchase a 16Gb iPad Pro, the name their giving the larger device for roughly around $1,000. This is far too much money for a low gigabyte model.

Apple over charges on each one of their products as their products have the Apple name and Logo. It is a name and logo recognizable by nearly everyone in Northern America, Europe and Asia. These over charges have proven to be an issue in the past as the majority aren’t willing to pay the extra coin. It is that reason as to why Android has been able to become so popular in such a short period of time. Regardless these rumors seem to be true and if so it’ll backfire on the company.

Tampa Bay Comic Con Gets Known For Harassment

It seems that the Tampa Bay Comic Con is gaining a bad name for themselves. During the last two years there has been reports from different models or actors that Tampa Bay Citizens don’t take no for an answer but instead only harass them until they do as they ask. This never proves to be an issue anywhere else in Northern America but for some odd reason Tampa Bay nerds tend to harass anyone they gawk over.

Tampa-Bay-Comic-Con

Jenna Beth, a cosplayer who dressed as a magical unicorn for the Tampa Bay Comic Con instantly went to police after she was harassed to the point where she was being felt up by those who wished to take pictures with her. Young teens refused her denial of taking pictures with them and once the picture was in progress she noted that a few young teens would reach for her bottom. This resulted in two young individuals being banned from the convention center for life.
This convention is meant to be a place where nerds and geeks can all come together to live the world they wished they could live on a daily basis. These select few bad apples who attend this convention on a yearly basis have been giving the Tampa Bay Comic Con a bad name for itself. There has even been rumors that Tampa Bay government officials won’t allow for the convention to return for another year in order to avoid these issues escalating to higher levels. If this is the case this will be the day where Tampa Bay nerds attack upon those who gave the Tampa Bay Comic Con a bad name.

Security At Large For World Cup

The 2014 Fifa World Cup has already begun, after three days and three separate matches there has already been a bombing relating towards the Fifa World Cup. A small city in Nigeria had seven of their citizens killed after a terrorist took it upon themselves to pack a large amount of explosives in a taxi. This information meant that potential terrorist attempts could be made at the Fifa World Cup which was already something that officials prepared for. This information coming to light resulted in Fifa World Cup Officials boasting up the security at the world cup.

Around every corner, in every hall and in the stands you will see security guards holding firearms in case any terrorist attempts are made at the Fifa World Cup. Each one of these security guards have been given the right to shoot on sight in they see a target that is a threat, they have also been given the authority to detain and interview anyone they choose to. This in return will allow for the security guards at the world cup to perform their job in a protective manner. Each security guard at the world cup either has history as a police officer or has history as a previous soldier. The reason for this is so that World Cup Officials can feel ensured that those attending will be safe.

Currently the Fifa World Cup is still on its way, the competition won’t stop unless a terrorist attempt is made.

Hedley Takes It Home

Last night the “Much Music Video Awards” came once again for its yearly basis run. All of the big names in the music industry appeared at the much music video awards this year. Artists that showed include Imagine Dragons, Lorde, Hedley, Drake, Eminem and many more. Hedley and Drake were in all of the same categories which meant that a rivalry was going to occur at the 2014 Much Music Video Awards.

MTV Video Music Awards 2012 logo

Unfortunately the Canadian rapper known as Drake lost to the Canadian rock band Hedley. This didn’t surprise anyone as even though Drake has become more popular than Hedley his fans are mainly those who consider themselves to be “Gangsta”. Those gangsters don’t take the time to vote for their favorite artist while all of the screaming girls that love Hedley do, this left Hedley winning all of the awards.

Drake couldn’t be reached for comment directly, instead his people said the following: “Congratulations to Hedley for winning some of the most vital awards at the Much Music Video Awards. Drake couldn’t be more proud of his fellow Canadians, they showed that Canadians can not only make their way in the music industry but dominate it.”

We don’t think we’d want to hear what Drake has to say himself, previously when he lost awards and was asked what he thought about his loss Drake freaked out. Drake made a series of remarks that lead to serious backlash against the rapper, this is why he more than likely didn’t make any comments this time.
