PS4, sold more than 1 million units in North America in its first 24 hours, according to Sony.But with any massive hardware roll out, some glitches are sure to surface. And the PS4 is no exception. Sony has addressed what some are calling the “blinking blue light of death,” an error that occurs when customers try to power up. “Just brought home my brand new PS4 and when (I) turn it on all it does is blink blue …,” one user wrote on Sony’s PlayStation support site. “I am overly upset that I spent most of my day waiting in line in the cold. Not a happy customer to say the least.” Sony had already acknowledged “a handful of people have reported issues” with their new console. The number of affected systems, Sony said, amounted to less than 0.4% of the units that have been shipped — or less than 4,000 out of 1 million. This not a surprise because Sony is gets hacked and glitched more than Microsoft. That’s why I will be sticking Xbox and Microsoft.

Yesterday Night…Branden Dawson tipped in a miss with less than six seconds left, and the No. 2 Spartans hung on for a 78-74 victory over top-ranked Kentucky and its latest cast of phenoms in the first game of the Champions Classic on Tuesday night.”We want to be No. 1 at the end of the season,”Keith Appling said. “Not the beginning.” Kentucky, too. After trailing by as much as 13 in the second half, looking like the freshmen most of them are, the Wildcats (2-1) showed why there’s so much hype surrounding them. Julius Randle almost beat the Spartans single-handedly, scoring 23 of his 27 points in the second half and making a jumper with 42 seconds left that cut Michigan State’s lead to 76-74.

(Next Game)Wiggins scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half, outplaying Parker down the stretch and helping the fifth-ranked Jayhawks knock off No. 4 Duke 94-83 on Tuesday night. “Big players make big plays,” Wiggins said. “I think our whole team, whoever was on the court, every possession we made a big play. That’s why we came out on top.” Parker, a former prep star at nearby Simeon High School, had 27 points, nine rebounds and two steals in a spectacular return to his hometown. But it was Wiggins who made the biggest plays in the final minutes of a taut thriller between two storied programs. Will This be the final four? Well Duke is my favorite and were going all the way.

Capt. Carl Gamble was behind the controls of Piedmont Airlines Flight 451 as the plane headed to Miami when a stewardess delivered a note from a passenger saying the flight was being hijacked. Gamble was an Air Force veteran who, exactly 15 years to the day of the hijacking, had been shot down in Vietnam. Over the plane’s intercom system, Gamble tried to negotiate with the hijacker, a pistol-wielding man dressed in black, who called himself “Lt. Spartacus.” Its surprising that he came back to America and he was also a ex black panther. Click link to read more about this interesting store.

One Southern California High School has added twerking to its list of dances that are banned for students. The Orange County Register reports. Tuesday that administrators at Aliso Niguel High School decided the rump-busting dance is sexually suggestive and should no longer be allowed on campus or at dances. Twerking now joins “freaking” and “grinding” as prohibited dances at the Orange County school. Those who break the rules could be ineligible for future dances for the remainder of the school year. Parents also will be notified. 

A single mom  was caught shoplifting at a Miami supermarket, but she didn’t get hauled off to jail. Instead, the officer who responded to the call from the Publix supermarket last month did something that brought the suspect to tears. Jessica Robles told CNN affiliate WSVN she was desperate and had no money to pay for groceries for her daughter and two young sons. According to Miami-Dade Police, Robles walked out of the store in late September with a cart carrying $300 worth of groceries that she didn’t pay for. I think that as very generous by the God and that goes to show that people should be more thankful in life because they don’t realize that some people are in worse conditions.

Andrew Wiggins is getting close to LeBron-level hype, even though the 18-year-old can’t go pro as James did because of the NBA’s higher age-limit rule enacted in 2005. And when Wiggins an NBA-ready all-around player and freak athlete like James is eligible for the draft after his freshman year at Kansas, the endorsement market for him could be bigger than it was for James as a rookie. “(Adidas) is easily the front-runner, 100 percent,” said Rich Lopez, the publisher of the popular sneaker website KixandtheCity.com. I just want to see whose going to draft him next year. Also being compared to LBJ is a bit much you know.  He is receiving a $180 million shoe deal that’s sick.

 Wednesday night, there was a technical glitch on the ride  Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. The coaster did what it was supposed to do, around 7 p.m: It came to a stop about 140 feet above the ground,spokesman Tom Schroder said. What the ride? which towers?  At its highest point, 17 stories above the theme park. Most riders were able to be safely taken off but, more than two hours later, about 10 still remained. The Orlando Fire Department was called in to pluck off these stranded few about 2½ hours after the ordeal began. One female rider was transported to the hospital complaining of neck and back pain, according to Schroder. Its crazy how these things happen but thankfully that they got them down because frantically i would be terrify sitting up there for 2 hours.
