Chevrolet releases Chevy Captiva diesel AWD

Following the marketing success of the Chevy Captiva 2400 cc engine and 2000 cc diesel engine, GM Autoworld Indonesia on behalf of Chevrolet is releasing the newest variant of the car on the Indonesian market.

The Chevy Captiva diesel AWD, with 2000 cc VCDi engine and an active on demand All Wheel Drive system, offers both driver and passengers extreme comfort and stability as they dash through the streets of the city.

With an environment friendly 16-valve engine, complete with common rail direct injection and supported by intercoolers and variable geometry turbo diesel air supply, the car can reach a maximum power of 150PS/4000 RPM and maximum torque of 320 NM/2000 RPM.

The AWD system installed is also different from the typical all-wheel drive, in which on a normal track only its two front wheels are pushing. This results in lower fuel consumption. And with interesting features like the 5-speed automatic with GM Tiptonic, automatic climate control, traction control and driver information display, this SUV is a winner.

Top 25 Facebook Games - May, 2009

The Facebook gaming leaderboards have experienced quite a number of changes since we last took a look at them a month ago! Over half of the games and applications have lost rather significant numbers, but at the same time, such losses have given a number of new titles a chance to make their appearance in the Top 25.

The highlights:

* Zynga and Playfish’s battle for the #1 spot continues between Texas HoldEm Poker and Pet Society, with the latter closing the gap with a gain of 1,348,759 to Zynga’s 1,054,775.
* However, that same growth did not hold true for spots 4 - 6 with Bumper Sticker, Pass A Drink, and Lil Green Patch losing about a million active users each.
* Playfish title Geo Challenge kept it’s #8 spot with 3.97 million active users this past month with Word Challenge coming in behind, but surprisingly enough the other Playfish titles were ousted by MindJolt Games who jumped all the way from #17 to #10.
* Zynga RPGs Vampire Wars and Street Racing increased in popularity with the former coming out on top at #12.
* Behind the major players, new comer Know-It-All-Triva appeared on the scene at #15 with 2,543,557 users, followed by another fresh face, 101 Eggs & More with 2,464,247 users.
* The past month also played host to two other new games for the Top 25 with Bejeweled Blitz from PopCap Games at #21 and Playfish’s newest title Restaurant City at #23.

The competition between Playfish and Zynga within the Top 25 has always been neck and neck in recent months, and this time around it looks to be Zynga that is coming out on top with all of their titles gaining traffic, and many of the Playfish titles (aside from Pet Society) experiencing slight declines.

Facebook suspends two Holocaust-denial groups

Under pressure from activists, Facebook has disabled two of five pages dedicated to Holocaust-denial groups.

Barry Schnitt, a spokesman for the social-networking site, confirmed the removal in an e-mail to CNET’s Technically Incorrect.

“Two of the groups have been disabled, but the other three remain,” Schnitt wrote. “We are monitoring these groups and if the discussion among members degrades to the point of promoting hate or violence, despite whatever disclaimer the group description provides, we will take them down. This has happened in the past, especially when controversial groups are publicized.”

One of the most vocal supporters for the pages’ removal has been Brian Cuban, a Texas attorney and brother of Dallas Mavericks team owner Mark Cuban.

Brian Cuban and others have argued that the Holocaust-denial pages violate Facebook’s terms of service, which prohibits content that is hateful.

While Cuban said it’s great that two of the pages have been suspended, he said Facebook’s actions do not go far enough. “It misses the crux of the dispute, which is a fundamental difference in the belief of what Holocasut Denial represents,” he said.

“Facebook sees Holocaust Denial as an unpopular, even rupugnant history theory,” Cuban wrote in an e-mail to CNN. “I see Holocaust Denial as a mantra of hate against Jews, and therefore no group should be tolerated. Facebook should not be picking and choosing who they think hates Jews and who does not. All the groups should go.”

Aiken's Lambert Rant: Claymate Turns To Clayhate

Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert's names have been linked quite a bit in the media lately--not just because of rumors (reported in the Chicago Sun-Times last week) that Clay actually wanted to record a duet with Adam, but because after Adam's shocking second-place finish on American Idol this week, many Lambert supporters have predicted that Adam will follow in Clay's footsteps and ultimately be more successful than the singer who actually won this year, Kris Allen.

But yesterday on his official website, ClayOnline.com, Clay Aiken made it clear in a personal blog titled "Silence Broken" that he is not a Lambert supporter at all.

Linkin Park crosses "New Divide" for "Transformers"

DETROIT NEW YORK (Billboard) - Hard at work on its fourth album, rock band Linkin Park has kept busy on a number of other fronts as well, among them its first movie soundtrack.

In addition to the group's contributions to the new "Transformers" film, some of its members have solo projects in the works. As for the new Linkin Park album, it likely will come out in 2010, according to co-frontman Mike Shinoda.

"It's moving," Shinoda told Billboard.com. "I feel like we've been writing a lot. I'd say we've got about half the music done, though I shouldn't say halfway, because who knows how long the next batch of songs will take."

Shinoda said he expects the album to reflect "an interesting transition" from the sound of 2007's "Minutes to Midnight," in part as a result of the band members' side projects. Singer Chester Bennington's upcoming solo album, "Dead By Sunrise" -- due out this fall -- "is much more of a rock album," Shinoda said, and it could take the band in new directions.

At the same time, Shinoda's rap side project, Fort Minor, is likely to influence the group's new material. He acknowledged that rap, which did not play a major role on "Minutes to Midnight," might be more prominent this time out. "I think I have some of the Fort Minor energy in me that wants to come out, so you'll probably hear more rapping on it," Shinoda said. "I don't know if it'll be a little or a lot, but I know I've been sitting down writing a lot of verses, so there's a better chance of those making it on the record."

"It's not going to be 'Hybrid Theory,'" Shinoda said of the work-in-progress. "It's not going to be 'Minutes to Midnight.' And if we do it right, it'll have a cutting-edge sound that defines itself as an individual record separate from anything else that's out there."

For now, however, Linkin Park has given its fans "New Divide," the theme song for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." As confirmed fans of the toy and cartoon franchise, the group "created a song that we felt fit the spirit of the movie and the characters and also obviously stayed true to the spirit of the band," Shinoda said. Film composer Hans Zimmer adapted "New Divide" into instrumental segments for the film score, and Linkin Park worked with Zimmer and Steve Jablonsky on other pieces for the movie.

"It was incredible," Shinoda said. "I've never tried to write music to visuals. It's a type of working that's new to us, and it's really fun."

Facebook and Twitter hunt for revenue

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Facebook and Twitter have helped make social networking a household word. Now they need to make money.

Efforts to monetize the popular Internet services are increasingly a priority within the two companies, with Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter Co-founder Biz Stone outlining several initiatives at the Reuters Global Technology Summit in New York this week.

And analysts and investors, in search of the next Google-like hit, are paying close attention to the breakneck speed at which Facebook and Twitter are adding new users.

While the popularity of the two social media firms has yet to translate into the kind of revenue-generating machine that Google Inc developed with its search advertising business, some say Facebook and Twitter have become so central to the Internet experience that they are inherently valuable.

"Both are new ways of communicating. And when you have a new way of communicating ... you benefit people enough so that there is going to be value there," said Tim Draper, managing director of venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson, noting that he regretted not having invested in either firm.

In April, Twitter's website attracted 17 million unique visitors in the United States, up sharply from 9.3 million the month before. Facebook grew to 200 million active users in April, less than a year after hitting 100 million users.

US Treasury Plans No GM Banckruptcy Next Week

WASHINGTON - The US Treasury Department has no plans to push General Motors Corp into a bankruptcy filing next week and the outcome of the automaker's restructuring efforts may not be known until a June 1 deadline, a source familiar with the situation said early Friday.

Earlier, the Washington Post ( WPO - news - people ) reported that the Treasury would steer GM into bankruptcy next week under a plan that would provide the company just short of $30 billion in new federal loans, citing unnamed sources.

A US Treasury spokeswoman declined to comment.

The Treasury is continuing to work with GM on its restructuring, and while the situation could change, there were no plans for a GM bankruptcy filing next week, said the source, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

James’ buzzer-beater lifts Cavaliers over Orlando Magic

CLEVELAND (AP)—The Cleveland Cavaliers needed a miracle. LeBron James(notes) delivered.

James made a fadeaway 3-pointer over Orlando’s Hedo Turkoglu(notes) as the final horn sounded Friday night to give the Cavaliers, their season a heartbeat from major trouble, a 96-95 victory over the Orlando Magic that evened the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece.

From 23 feet—matching his jersey number—James made a shot unlike any before in Cleveland history.

Taking the inbounds pass from Mo Williams(notes), James only had time to turn his shoulders toward the rim and fire. As the shot dropped in, James sprinted into the arms of his teammates as 20,562 stunned fans hugged in disbelief.

In the past, this was the kind of shot that happened against the Cavs. Remember Michael Jordan over Craig Ehlo?

Well, James has changed everything in Cleveland.

Game 3 will be held on Sunday night in Orlando, where the Magic beat the Cavaliers twice this season and thumped by 29 points on April 3.

Roh Moo-hyun, Former South Korean President, Kills Himself

SEOUL, South Korea — Former South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun, embroiled in a broadening corruption scandal, died Saturday after jumping from a mountain cliff behind his rural southern home. He left behind a suicide note, his lawyer said.

Roh, 62, had been hiking in the village of Bongha Saturday morning when he threw himself off the mountainside, lawyer Moon Jae-in told reporters.

He was rushed to Busan National University Hospital in the nearby port city of Busan around 8:15 a.m. (2315 GMT) and died around 9:30 a.m. (0030 GMT) from head injuries, hospital officials said.

The former president left a "brief" suicide note for his family, Moon told reporters at a news conference at the hospital.

MBC television reported that Roh said in the note that things have been "difficult" and he felt he had made "too many people suffer." The note also said Roh wanted his body cremated, according to the report. It did not say how it obtained the note.

Investigators have not seen the suicide note, a Busan police official said. He did not give his name, citing department policy.

President Lee Myung-bak said Saturday that the news was "truly hard to believe" and called Roh's death "sad and tragic," presidential spokesman Lee Dong-kwan said.

Roh, a former human rights lawyer, served as president from 2003 to 2008 campaigning as a "clean" politician in a country with a long history of corruption.

"World's Oldest Blogger," 97, Dies In Spain

Maria Amelia Lopez, a Spanish great-grandmother who billed herself as the "world's oldest blogger" and who gained a global following on the Internet, died yesterday at the age of 97, local officials and reports said.

Maria Amelia Lopez, who was introduced to the world of blogging by one of her grandchildren, used a mix of humour and nostalgia to recall life during the long dictatorship of Francisco Franco and give her take on modern life.

"Today it's my birthday and my grandson, who is very stingy, gave me a blog," she wrote on her first post on amis95.blogspot.com on December 23, 2006.

Her blog quickly soared in popularity after the media reported on it, having seen more than 1.5 million hits, and it earned Lopez a meeting with Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who she openly supported.

In summer, Lopez would write from her seaside home in Muxia in northwestern Spain, where she was born in 1911; and from the Galician farmhouse where she lived with her grandson Daniel during the rest of the year.

Her posts touched on personal health problems, from trips to the doctor to bouts of dizziness, to her opinion on current events; from the violence of the Basque separatists to Iran's nuclear pretensions.

She blogged sporadically -- sometimes once a week, sometimes daily -- with the aid of her grandson because cataracts impaired her vision.

In recent months Lopez was increasingly posting video messages on her blog instead of written texts.

In one of her last posts made in February, she enthused about how the "Internet amazes me more and more" after her grandson Daniel introduced her to the social networking site Facebook.

She promptly set up a group on Facebook to defend old people's rights.

"One day soon I am going to die. All I am really scared of is losing my mind. In the meantime, I'll carry on," she said in an interview with Britain's The Guardian newspaper in September 2007.
