60 Minutes has reportedly made a donation of $5000 to Hands Across the Water, the  Australian charity raising money for Thai baby Gammy. It follows Tara Brown’s interview with Wendy and David Farnell last week. But News Corp reports 60 Minutes would have likely made at least $500,000 in advertising revenue for the episode, and the money falls well-short of the kind of fee it would have forked out for a paid high-profile interview. In the lead-up to the inter ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
