Do Foo Fighters Know Robert Pattinson From Robert Plant?

During band’s rehearsal break for Sunday’s Movie Awards, we put Foos to the test.

<P><b>UNIVERSAL CITY, California</b> &#8212; Hard rock, heavy metal, hardcore and punk have long gone hand-in-hand with evil wizards, magic, vampires and werewolves. And with a collective sub-cultural pedigree that includes stints in the Germs, No Use for a Name, Sunny Day Real Estate, Scream and some band called Nirvana, you’d think the <a href=”/music/artist/foo_fighters/artist.jhtml”>Foo Fighters</a> &#8212; set to perform at Sunday’s <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/ontv/movieawards/2011/”>Movie Awards</a> &#8212; would know their “Potter” from their Zeppelin. Certainly they can recognize a “wand” reference and pinpoint its origin? </P><P> </P><P></p><div class=”player-placeholder right” title=”The Foo Fighters Take The Movie Awards Quiz” id=”vid:660301.id:1664959″ width=”240″ height=”211″></div><p> </P><P> </P><P>Right? Before we put MTV News’ magically crafted trivia to the band, it seemed safe to assume the Foos would accurately distinguish between the words of Harry Potter, a “Twilight” character and Led Zeppelin. But was their underground nerd cred blown to shreds? Read on &#8212; and click the video! &#8212; to see how the Foo Fighters fared when we caught up with them on the Universal Studios lot, shortly after they finished rehearsing their <a href=”/news/articles/1664297/foo-fighters-mtv-movie-awards.jhtml”>Movie Awards performance</a>. </P><P> </P><P>Our own Jim Cantiello played dungeon master as Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear were given a series of semi-famous lines and asked whether they originated with “Harry Potter,” the “Twilight Saga” or the lyrics of hard-rock pioneers Led Zeppelin. </P><P> </P><P>Here’s a sampling of a few of those one-liners: </P><P> </P><P><b>&#187;</b> “The elder wand, the most powerful wand ever made.” </P><P> </P><P><b>&#187;</b> “Why don’t you let me be yours ever truly? Can I make your garden grow?” </P><P> </P><P><b>&#187;</b> “You’re lying, Dolores! You mustn’t tell lies!” </P><P> </P><P>Can you guess whether the lines above came from the “Potter” flicks, “Twilight” or Robert Plant? </P><P> </P><P>Watch as the Foos try their best to do exactly that. Then tune in to the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday to catch the Foo Fighters rock the stage with their new single, “Walk.” </P><P> </P><P><b>Will wizards, vampires or dream thieves steal the <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/ontv/movieawards/2011/”>2011 MTV Movie Awards</a>?

Apple drops iCloud prices, matches rival storage services from Google and Microsoft

For the second year in a row, Apple reduced prices for its expanded iCloud storage plans, putting costs in line with rivals like Google, Microsoft and Dropbox.

Apple announced changes to iCloud extra storage pricing earlier this month at the event where it unveiled new iPhones, the larger iPad Pro and a revamped Apple TV.

Although the Cupertino, Calif., company did not boost the amount of free storage space — as Computerworld speculated it might — and instead continued to provide just 5GB of iCloud space gratis, it bumped up the $ 0.99 per month plan from 20GB to 50GB, lowered the price of the 200GB plan by 25 percent to $ 2.99 monthly, and halved the 1TB plan’s price to $ 9.99.
