Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson to be interns at Google

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson to be interns at Google
In a movie, obviously. Google's hiring policies tend to require at least one master's degree, if not better, in a decidedly tech field. We're pretty sure that Vince and Owen haven't had that much time to commit to coding since getting into acting. Still, the two have some pretty solid comedic chemistry, and best of all, this movie, titled The Internship, will be rated-R. 

Word has it that Vaughn and Wilson are working on a movie where they play 40-year olds who lose their jobs and start over in a new field. They get internships at Google, and are subsequently bullied by their bosses who are half as old as they are. Pretty standard comedy formula it seems. Unfortunately, the movie won't be filming at the Googleplex, but instead will shoot on the Georgia Tech campus. 

The movie is planned to release next year, and we're assuming that there will be at least a few Android/iPhone jokes in the script. No word on what sort of cameos there will be from Google's well-known faces, or if everyone in the movie will be wearing Google Glass.

You mean Netflix, right? I mean, they don't bother putting media on physical discs anymore, do they?

Netflix doesn't offer movies right when they're released, not by a long shot. i use Redbox myself. it's just easier to pop a DVD or Blu-ray in than it is to download or stream a Movie. not that i don't make use of digital services, on the contrary, i look quite forward to checking out Redbox's Instant service.

I missed when Michael H. did actual news articles instead of filler junk like this. Where are you Michael, I can't stand seeing good articles being thrown away by people who are too lazy to write more than 2 paragraphs of useless information.

Sorry about that. I've been a bit off my rhythm for the past month or so. I got married down in Jamaica at the end of June, and you'll never guess, but it's a bit hard to get back in the habit of thinking critically about mobile tech after spending 2 weeks in paradise. I promise, I'm getting back on it. In fact, just for you, I'm gonna finally write up something that's been bouncing around my head about Siri and Google Now.

Actually, forget the Siri/Google Now thing. Something else caught my interest. Proper column coming tomorrow though!

Well now I feel like a horrible person. Congrats on the marriage! No disrespect intended, but I have enjoyed your articles compared to some others. Hopefully we see more from you soon!

Apple already filed a patent on a napkin for a movie about interns back in 2007. It will be awarded 1 week before this movie is released followed by a subsequent lawsuit. No script, no cast nothing but the concept. 2013 release gets pushed to 2019.

Yay! Another "Apple patented this ridiculous thing" joke! No one has heard that bit before. Of course, the joke should be "The USPTO granted a patent on this ridiculous thing". It's the USPTO's fault for creating a BS system, not Apple's or Samsung's or Microsoft's for taking advantage of it.

Orly? So I'm guessing you are the same type of person that believes that it's the Badminton committees fault for creating a system where there are advantages to losing rather than the players' fault for having poor sportsmanship at the olympics this year?
