An ad designed for the Super Bowl by high-end gunmaker Daniel Defense won't be running during football's championship game in February, after being rejected by the NFL for violating its advertising guidelines, according to Yahoo! Sports' Shutdown Corner. In the ad, a former soldier checks around his home and looks in on his wife and baby, while a voiceover says, "No one has the right to tell me how to defend them." Under the NFL's ad rules, spots can't run for weapons or ammunition, but stores that sell firearms, such as outdoor stores, can run ads, as long as they sell other products and the ads don't mention weapons. Daniel Defense is trying to get an exemption, because no guns are visible in the ad, and because the company's stores do sell other products, but the NFL isn't budging. The ad also obviously has some political advocacy going on as well, and the NFL has traditionally rejected issue-oriented national ads during the Super Bowl.
Watch it and tell me what you think about this situation and commercial?

Could you imagine ordering something from Amazon.con and having it show up at your door just 30 minutes later? It's something that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has envisioned, and that he revealed in an interview with CBS' 60 Minutes last night (December 1st) the company is developing, creating drones to make the deliveries. The program, called Amazon Prime Air, would have drones delivering packages of up to five pounds -- which Bezos says makes up 86 percent of their orders -- within a half-hour up to 10 miles from the fulfillment center. Bezos said they're still four or five years away from Amazon Prime Air going operational, mostly because of working out issues with the Federal Aviation Administration to make sure it's legally allowed.

An Australian family has reclaimed the Guinness World record by stringing up more than half a million Christmas lights around their home. Guinness World Records official Chris Sheedy confirmed Monday (November 25th) that the Richards family of Canberra set the record for Christmas lights on a residential property with 502,165 bulbs. The Richards home with its lights on more than 50 kilometers (31 miles) of wire in suburban Forrest will be open to the public from the weekend to raise money for charity. Richards bought the lights, but a local power company donated the estimated $2,300 on electricity that would illuminate them for the next month. (Huffington Post)
