So what else is going on today for nerds? It's been confirmed that IE7 will feature tabbed browsing, which shows that Microsoft is acknoledging the prowess of Firefox and is trying to compensate. It should amount to an interesting battle. They're also firing shots on the desktop search front with a final version of their offering. I haven't had time to try it out myself so I won't say much else about that. The BBC may be starting a revolution today as it unveils plans to put a program called iMP into trial, which is a service they're playing around with to download television shows on demand. They want it to be analogous to iTunes and music, and the greatest advantage of it could be that shows that receive great reviews later (like Lost or 24) can be easily attained online and, hence, boost ratings. Let's hope American executives wake up to this possibility. And lastly, I wanted to share this look at the history of Apple computers.
There's so much going on in movies today that I'll go through everything briefly, starting with multimedia. Yahoo! Movies is showcasing an exclusive clip from A History of Violence, which features Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn from Lord of the Rings). You can see a great trailer of that movie over here. There's a new commercial out there featuring the Fantastic Four but strangely without any movie footage. There are some less notable trailers from Cannes over here for those are interested. There's some bad news today: Lindsey Lohan will be in Mission Impossible 3. I don't know why, but she better not ruin it. Now to balance with good news: principal photography on Casino Royale will start this summer, so we could see it as soon as summer of 2007. Want more good news? True Lies 2 is in the works and is planned to start seriously after the Governor of California is free to work on it. There's now word that Sony has given its approval on a Tekken movie, and lets hope it doesn't blow. Lastly, here's a shot of the Batmobile from E3:
I've gotta go watch Sideways now, so no meme today. Sorry!
