  • iPad TV: Interesting blog post from Adam Lisagor, on how the iPad might affect TV:

    "Could it be that Apple has chosen to separate our video content and store it temporarily in this ghetto because there is something new and awesome on the horizon? Here’s what I think: Soon enough, that placeholder app called Videos will go away, to replaced by a new app called Apple TV."

    Lots of interesting food for thought, here.

  • The New Golden Age of Renting?: I'm not sure that Rent-A-Center is a good deal, but I wish that I had Chegg when I was in college.

  • The IBM Muppet Show: I'm... confused. IBM, used to be cool?!?!

  • Why Buffy may never be Blu: Decent analysis of some of the technical details of how "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was shot. The bad news: it looks like getting Buffy in high def is going to be a non-trivial undertaking.

  • Burkas and Birkins: Pretty funny review of the latest "Sex and the City" movie:

    "SATC2 takes everything that I hold dear as a woman and as a human—working hard, contributing to society, not being an entitled cunt like it's my job—and rapes it to death with a stiletto that costs more than my car. It is 146 minutes long, which means that I entered the theater in the bloom of youth and emerged with a family of field mice living in my long, white mustache. This is an entirely inappropriate length for what is essentially a home video of gay men playing with giant Barbie dolls."
